Depression causes sickness

Common Questions and Answers about Depression causes sickness


Avatar f tn Hello, Unintentional weight loss is a manifestation of illness.It may be due to anorexia,bulimia,Addison’s disease,depression,stress and anxiety,diabetes,hyperthyroidism, bowel obstruction or gastrointestinal causes,malabsorption,infections(parasites) or malignancies.Tingling sensation can be due to diabetes,thyroid disease,vit B 12 deficiency and neurological problems. Without examination,confirming a diagnosis is tough.
Avatar f tn Unintentional and unexplained weight loss is definitely not good. There are many causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc.
Avatar f tn This hormone can actually be addictive, and can frustrate people. I know the arguement is huge as to what causes depression and why so many people are depressed. My main points are that it depends on who you are, your confidence, how many different things cause depression and your environment. Thanks, this is pretty interesting.
165308 tn?1323190145 You are on a medication (Paxil) for depression and yet you are still suffering from depression, low energy, self-esteem issues. That tells me that you are either A) Not on the right medication for you, or - B) You and your doctor need to discuss an adjustment in the medication dosage. Paxil is a good medication. It is not for everybody.
Avatar f tn It happens at least once a day in random moments. I have been told I have depression so I'm on pills and I also have asthma and allergies, but my medicine has not change in months. Any hints? This is making me do horrible at my job.
Avatar n tn He has physical symptoms that we have been ruling out with the doctor for physical causes (his lack of belief that anxiety/depression is the cause). He has been on med's again for 5 weeks, but they are not doing their job. The psychiatrist has boosted & changed his med's to help speed up treatment, but so far not good. Bipolar disorder runs in his family & so does alzheimers disease. Could anxiety/depression cause these disorders to rear their ugly heads?
Avatar n tn I have nerve damage, neuropathy, headaches, depression, and trouble with balance when walking, I had a gastric bypass REVERSAL after suffering with constant sickness since then I have not taken any vitamins except One a day womens for menapause and I only took that for a week before I had my blood drawn, what has caused this and will the damage to my nerves be reversable?
Avatar n tn I don't have any chest pains, headaches, numbness. I do suffer from alot of anxiety and depression and having these symptoms make me stress out alot so therefore I panick. I 'am over weight and have a little high cholesterol. Please if anybody is experiencing this symptom and have been diagnosed with something regarding dizziness please let me know. Thank you.

Avatar m tn Diagnosis of IBS is through elimination of other inflammatory bowel causes. There are many other causes of unexplained weight loss like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers (ruled out as you had a colonoscopy in 2012), drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Please discuss with your doctor. The above mentioned tests should be done. I sincerely hope you will find this information useful in your journey towards better health.
686172 tn?1256843317 Most commonly, vertigo results from motion sickness. Motion sickness may develop in people whose inner ear is sensitive to particular motions, such as swaying or sudden stopping and starting. Another common cause of vertigo is an abnormal collection of calcium particles in one semicircular canal of the inner ear. The resulting disorder, called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV, is especially common among older people. It occurs when the head is moved in certain ways.
Avatar n tn want to vomit. Drs said that there are many causes for such a case including that they found that I got dead Hep A cells in my blood & think the mood of tiredness, abdominal pain, etc.. is from a 2 months ago illness of Hep A that is still affecting me. I've spend the last 2 month on my nevers, I don't know what is wrong with me & feeling that I could have a cancer or I'm practically dying for a reason or another but doctors didn't know.
20867265 tn?1552029940 Therapy might, and might not, but if it does, it's fixed. Drugs can't fix it because we don't know what causes depression. Whatever it is, it's not anything targeted by either antipsychotics or antidepressants at the moment, though there's a new one that actually targets the neurotransmitter currently in vogue as causal. We just don't know. So it might be you really are a depression sufferer.
Avatar m tn It seems like they both trigger each other in a vicious circle. Emotional stress (she is receiving councelling) causes her to get sick almost immediately, irregular period and bleeding and dramatic weight gain. All of this leads to further stress. Also, without the emotional stress - she regularly gets ill anyway (colds, flu, unsettled stomach and unable to eat certain foods, has issues with her weight) and this causes here stress and low self esteem.
Avatar n tn Yeah I feel your pain I had a rebound anxiety disorder from smoking marijuana. Marijuana causes chemical imbalances and causes panic attacks even in people that don't have a disorder. Although there's a 50-50 chance of you growing some sort of disorder. Either you become anxious because you smoke and it subsides after the high is overwith, or you form a disorder that causes constant worry and struggle.
Avatar m tn That is the depression talking.I just watched a documentary on depression yesterday at 4am (couldn't sleep due to MY depression ha ha). It was people from all walks of life battling it. From a gang member to corporate execs. You know what, now they can see depression! MRI's can see the activity on the frontal lobe of the brain. I won't go into the mumbo jumbo, I am a nurse and I get fascinated by this stuff but they are on the edge many new treatments that don't involve meds. Hallelujah!
604197 tn?1292308636 This initially caused me to experience motion sickness but is something I'm getting used to. If I slow my speed down to less than 40 mph the visual symptoms improve. I initially had loss of short-term memory which seems to be improving. For several months I would lose my keys and wallet no matter where I put them when I got home.
Avatar f tn My daughter is a cosmetologist and she told me the topo causes the hair follicles to close. What has fallen out, wont grow back, but the hair loss should stop when you discontinue the drug. The Topo really messed up my cycle too. I think my adrenals took a hard hit from just two weeks on the drug. For me it was not worth it. I was stupid, depressed and started having panic attacks on it. I would loose blocks of time. Huge blocks.
200220 tn?1361955154 Most of that was due to my TSH being so far off and going up and down and my hormones being out of whack. It causes depression. The fact that I was unable to work and the doctors were not making me better just made it worse. I still have bouts of depression, but they are not as severe now, and I can often "talk myself" out of a bad spell. The people here help a lot, because they understand what it is like and it is difficult for me to talk to my friends in town about it.
Avatar n tn I do know, however, that if you have lyme, that it is highly unlikely it will spontaneously remit on its own. Borrelia burgdorferi (the spirochete shaped bacteria that causes Lyme diseae) is an infuriatingly clever, adapative organism. If you had it for any length of time, 3 weeks of doxycycline probably won't cut it (particularly if your dose was merely bacteriostatic rather than bacteriorcidal).
Avatar m tn In the last year of hi engg he went in depression. We were worried a lot about his depression so we were preoccupied with his treatment. we could not arrange finance or we could not concentrate properly what he should do further even he could not do it. I couldnot come to a conclusion about his further studies. He says the going to other country was his third option where as his second option was MBA and the first option was going to UK which was not done.
Avatar m tn My son is now 24 years old. He was suffering from depression three years back. He did not go to college for two months continiously. He was just sitting in a corner and not going out any where. He was started with depression medicine. Doctor gave him Mirtaz tabs and one another tab. After six months he suddenly stopped medicine saying that I donot require this medicine. After eighth months he was to start the same again.
11025355 tn?1416999157 At the moment you are exhibiting the typical symptoms of depression. People who suffer from depression, do not feel happy. I had been like that for years and trying to work through and get out of depression takes time. Well done for you that you recognised that you do need help from the therapist. And all you can do is take on board the advice I gave you before in on of your other threads and also follow the advice of your doctor and therapist.
Avatar m tn Yes, someone with a major depressive disorder may absolutely have pain stemming from the depression itself. In fact, it is common for ppl with depression to have aches and pains due to the disorder. Weight gain is very common with anti-depressants but it may not have much to do with him stopping suddenly. Depression effects the chemicals in your brain (dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin), not your horomones.
1198664 tn?1368651412 The depression part is the worst for most and one of the leading causes in relapse. So keep all this in mind and fight. Fight as hard as you can to stay clean. The light at the end of the tunnel is bright. You just have to get to it. Good luck!

Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar n tn Though I don't think that the digestive problem is a link to my depression, my depression is more than likely a result of my digestive problem taking my life away. I did just start getting therapy to help me try and mentally cope with this though. But I've only been to one session.... I really hope they will help me... Maybe that’s something you can think about doing too?
Avatar n tn Why is Paxil the choice remedy for post opiate depression if it's hard to withdraw from and also causes sedation? This is the problem with Gina now... the Paxil is making her so sleepy and sluggish and even at 40mg she is very very down. This is the longest she has been off the heroin and as you say, this is the result. What is the choice remedy ? I don't really know the difference between all the SSRI's. I never heard of Remeron till you mentioned it. What is it ?
Avatar n tn You are correct in stating that pain and depression may occur for different causes at the same time. Though seperate they may exacerbate each other. Increased pain may decrease your energy and therefore become more depressed. When depression worsens, it may increase the intensity of the pain. Fortunately you are following up with a physician. You may benefit from a pain specialist. I understand you go to the best physicians, but avoid frequently changing physicians.
