Depression causes symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Depression causes symptoms


Avatar m tn Hello, From your symptoms two possibilities are coming to my mind. They are of lichen planus or cicinate balanitis. Lichen planus is an inflammatory disease that affects the skin and the oral mucosa, and presents itself in the form of papules (flat spots) or rashes. Treatment is available only on prescription and consists mainly of steroids, retinoids, hydroquinone and phototherapy. My sincere advice would e to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated.
Avatar n tn it may be important to consider a psychotherapist in conjunction with the meds to hopefully get to the emotional root causes of her depression.
Avatar n tn The Chinese believe depression causes a decrease in the flow of qi (chi), which is your life force, and the use of Chinese herbs re-energizes the flow of qi through the chest, Chinese herbs and Acupuncture work effectively together to relieve depression
Avatar n tn Often the medication takes a long time to kick in and that is what causes the time delay in having the depression. So not sure why you are asking. Do you have problems and now need to see a specialist? Or do you think you need to see one? What are your levels of TSH etc, do you know?
Avatar f tn That is one of many symptoms, but alone is not an indicator or disagnosis of major depression.

Avatar n tn Please Google depression and depression symptoms so you can read the full facts. Can you get rid of it without meds? Essentially all cured depressions are cured by other than meds. Meds do not cure depression, they relieve the symptoms when we feel bad enough to need meds. Relieving those symptoms supposedly allos us to think more clearly, identify the problems causing depression and fix those problems which in turn fixes the depression. That's the theory.
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.
Avatar m tn They are very similar and have same symptoms. Manic depression is hyperactivity. And depression is inattentive or withdrawal from interests. Start prescribing the adhd meds for depression or inattentive attention disorder, and, mood stabilization meds for maniac disorders or hyperactivity and leave psychotherapy for environmental issues and coping skills for change.

Avatar n tn We have had our relationship problems and trials in raising kids, but I truly believe that some people's brains just don't make the right chemicals which causes depression. At times though, situations do make the depression worse. The worst part is not always knowing what really causes and triggers it. I wish I din't have to rely on meds, but I guess I came to that realization with this recent trial and error of trying to do it without.
Avatar f tn Hep c tx can lead to depression...Symptoms include feelings of sadness and hoplessness, loss of interest in once pleasurable activities, changes in weight, sleep, or appearance. Sorry to hear you're going thru this. Talk to a medical professional about it. Hoping you find a good SSRI; Good luck with it all. Cory.
Avatar n tn What are the causes and symptoms of anhedonia? Background:I have survived two right temporal lobe brain tumor risections, have a controlled seizure disorder, and am being treated for depression.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry that your depression is untreatable, and with all those ECTs it has not improved. I presume no anti-depression medication has been effective in your case either. I presume you have tried them all. You certainly don't sound pathetic, I admire you for being such a fighter. Seems the doctors and psychiatrists have given up on you. Well I do not know what to suggest you do next, seems to me you have tried so hard.
2033435 tn?1329947108 How do you differentiate between hypo symptoms and depression? It seems to me that since I know I have a hypo issue, I am even more fatigued and unable to get out of bed. And this makes me think if the way I feel is psychological related, or if it's from being hypo. In the last 3 weeks I can hardly get out of bed and I can't pinpoint if it's just laziness, depression-related or a hypo symptom. I know hypo causes depression and no one really knows if it's egg or chicken paradox etc.
Avatar n tn When thyroid gland produces excess thyroid hormone it causes hyperthyroidism. The symptoms are simple for which people ignore them easily. A person who is diagnosed with hyperthyroidism will feel at a depressive condition or a digestive problem before found himself with overactive thyroid gland. The most common symptom is sudden weight loss. When without any reason you noticed that weight decreased, you need to concern to a doctor.
Avatar n tn a stressed immune system causes deopression, and depression stresses the immune system. .. and.. perhaps for years, we have had symptoms, which we tried to shake off or igmore.. and for the most part, our doctors have certainly not paid much attention to them, when in reality, they should have investigated further..and looked at the whole patient, not just one symptom at a time... THEN..the actual HUMAN mind..emotioms come into play...BOOM.. we find out we have the horrid virus..
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with both acid reflux, and inflamatory colitis, anxiety, and depression, as well as ADHD. Lately I have been experiencing (roughly once a month for 1-2 days) Nausea with flu like symptoms. I have trouble with my extremities (Hands and feet) being cold on a regular basis and they have been refered to as a "dead Mans hands" on more than one occasion. I always feel exhuasted, no matter how much rest I get.
Avatar f tn you can say the same for depression and chronic pain it causes the same..
Avatar m tn my doctor is less interested in what is causing my depression and is only interested in treating the symptoms. he believes that SADD , situational depression because of life circumstance ,or "hardwired depression" is the same because its depression. ive been on antidepressant drugs 10 years and dont like the side effects. how do i ge t aphysician to listen and quit drugging me? im not a lab rat.
Avatar f tn Yes, acid reflux may occasionally present with severe symptoms leading to inflammation and spasms, which may cause vomiting. However if this occurs frequently, an active search for other possible causes such as GI infections, inflammations, GI motility issues, growths/ masses etc may need to be considered and an evaluation by a gastroenterologist would be required. Hope the information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn pain develops not exactly in the stomatch but in he lower part of my body in the excretory parts..
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 m tn I am 47 and had been battling the health anxiety since 20 years. I have hypertension,hyperlipidemia & mitral valve prolapse with trivial regurgitation (which causes anxiety & palpitation). All these years my focus was mainly on heart, but since one month i has become very cancer phobic, as i remember one of aunt who died of cancer before 15 years..
