Common Questions and Answers about Depression help nhs


Avatar f tn Okay so I've had issues with depression way before becoming pregnant. And now being pregnant I of course cannot take my meds. Has anyone else dealt with depression issues before/during pregnancy? No certain reason behind them, just depressed. And does it usually cause you to be more at risk for post partum depression? How can I deal with this easier? Now and once my little man is here?

773980 tn?1257401525 My Fiancée lived in America which is where i was going to move to, i went over for a Month over the Christmas Period and a Couple of Weeks after my return i started feeling strange and my Monthlys were getting later and later so i went to the nhs walk in center to see if i could find out what was wrong, and as my best friend predicted i was pregnant.
Avatar f tn Hi Alison, Bi Polar IS depression actually. It's just a type of depression that includes mania or hypomania. If you are unsure then a diagnosis is indeed the way to go and should be anyway as if it is either D or BP they need to be treated and not ignored. Mood swings in BP are quite extreme and stunningly hard to deal with and it sounds like you are going through that. But the key to a diagnosis of BP is experiencing mania or hypomania.
Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
Avatar f tn I'm always shattered but can't sleep great bse everything depression, have a constant water infection, got kidney stones and have had kidney stones removed key hole surgery. My consultant has said that my parathyroid are not working as they should be but i don't no how bad it is...can some please help or explain to me.

Avatar f tn I have terrible depression. constipation, sluggish.tiredness, over weight hair falling out etc and severe depression. I am very unhappy. My Doctor has decreased my tablets to 1.5 and wants to decrease it even further. I am getting worse and piling on the weight. I tried explaining to him how much betterI am on more tablets but he does not listen. He says it is not good for my heart and I should be taking less but when I take even 2 tablets I feel so much better.
1102329 tn?1282922477 i am lucky because my fiance knows how badly i want to get clean and will do anything to help including hiding my prescription and only giving it to me when its due..even if i do get very ratty with him for not letting me have it early lol!! just terrified of going under,im terrified of the withdrawal being so bad that i actually cant cope with it...
7899924 tn?1395188312 Constant bouts of anxiety and depression, but neither consistently or all the time - and neither respond much to medication. Mood swings, now those are ALL THE TIME! Horrible constipation that I can't get under control. And last but not least ... heart palpitations. My Doctor faithfully tested my thyroid year after year, checking only my TSH and telling me always that it was normal. Finally I insisted on seeing an Endocrinologist. He just tested my Ft3 Ft4 and antibodies.
230948 tn?1235847929 Iv been posting on the MS site for a while as my sx closly matched what some people on there wer feeling but yesterday i received a clear MRI of the head and spine (not done with contrast though) Im in the UK by the way and on the NHS so things are abit slow here. My consultant is sending me to a hospital in london for a day of testing including a LP and a emg, and is doing another MRI of the pelvis to check the nerves there.
Avatar f tn Your condition sounds serious. Does not sound like depression. You must talk to someone about this. Will your parents help? You are too young to go through this alone. PLEASE seek help.
Avatar f tn On the other hand I've read that the operations for it aren't guaranteed to help with fertility. I have a long term girlfriend and now I've got 0 urge to have sex with her because how down its making me feel. I feel betrayed by the NHS and angry in all honesty at the lack of information. They haven't even disclosed what grade it is, nothing, just that I have it. I feel even worse that I have it in both, whereas most have it in just the left. Am I truly screwed? What do I do?
Avatar m tn When I went to my doctor I was diagnosed with depression, I said that I thought that I might have hypothyroidism but he dismissed it because I didn't have the 'major' symptoms as he put it, of weight gain, hair loss, or sensitivity to the cold.
Avatar f tn In January i went to my GP and got prescribed medication for depression but never actually took any of them. I have them here as proof in the package untouched and along with the repeat prescription lasting a further 5 months worth of tablets. I am wishing to join the royal marines but they need you to be off anti depressants for 24 months before applying to join.
Avatar f tn ) Zinc and selenium are great for hypothyroid patients. Vitamins Bs, especially B12 in particular, help with depression. Watch out for food allergens, wheat and milk intolerances are very common. You might want to try a rotation diet to eliminate any foods that might be causing brain fog or depression. Many people feel better on a low carb diet or gluten free, even if they are not celiac diagnosed. If I eat wheat I will cry about 2 hours later and totally lose it. Regular exercise. Yup.
Avatar m tn Hi and Welcome! I am sorry you are still suffering...I don't know about subutex but I was on a similar drug before cold turkey called Targin (oxycontin and nalexone) 100 mg. I have had a long and drawn out detox. I am at 20 days and finally slept last night. Still having chills, sweats, and sinus stuff. It's important to get a good quality multi-vitamin, whey protein shakes, and lots of exercise. Your brain needs to heal-and everyone's brain is different. It takes time and patience.
Avatar m tn Would I be able to get an emergency appointment on the NHS for anxiety and depression? Any advise is appreciated. Thanks, Conor.
2217782 tn?1394367572 They are really the best people to deal with these issues, especially because you have multiple concerns that need addressed, the eating disorder tendencies, depression, anxiety, etc. I urge you to seek the help of a psych, that is your best choice. You can ask your PCP for a referral. Some insurance companies do not require a referral, in which case, you can seek one out on your own.
3164165 tn?1345337594 of thyroid, and that FT3 and FT4 are more important, come from UK, yet UK is the most unyielding, when it comes to testing/treatment, simply because of the NHS guidelines. I can't help wonder if we, here in the U.S. will have the same issues when our health care plan takes full effect.
Avatar f tn I just want to get better and be happy , I don't know how much longer I can do this for if I'm honest, I honestly do feel like I have been failed by the NHS and am not willing to trust them, what are the best medications for my mental problems and my physical symptoms eg feeling shaky, dizzy, like I'm going to have an accident and like I am going to faint, I just want to be a father and live a happy life my son is 9 months old and I have never touched him, heard him breath or cry because of the
Avatar n tn The NHS is a painfully slow process I know but ask to be referred to a psychologist who can help you look at ways of dealing with the causes of your depression and how to manage it in the future. It sounds like the events that forced you out of your job have left you with very low self-esteem and this is absolutely not your fault! Sadly there are some real horrid people out there.
4861077 tn?1360159739 I find it hard to do all my daily things to the point that it hurts to peel potatoes what kind of help can I get for this as it is all new to me. I take lots of medication and am still in pain please help. I take adcal d3 twice a day I take naproxen two tablets twice a day I take flouxotine two tablets a day I take co dydramol two tablets four times a day and I take amitriptline tablets two a day are these right for this diagnosis as I am still in a lot of pain.
4377914 tn?1353677997 His depression is certainly severe and he needs medication. Let him know that he needs medication to help his depression and that it will help him. Counseling would also be helpful at this time. If he doesn't have the money for these services, then you will have to appeal to his parents to try to get the financial help. Don't ignore this. Don't give in to him not wanting to talk about it. His life is at stake. How will you all feel if he does commit suicide?
Avatar f tn I saw quite a few psychiatrists and psychologists and counsellors, but all through the NHS. First step is to see a doctor. Have you discussed how you are feeling with your parents? I know you don't want to go to a doctor. But please mental health problems are no different from physical problems. Seems you think there is a stigma attached to poor mental health. All the people on this site are mentally ill. That is why we are here. To support each other.
993844 tn?1249690137 For the last year I have had heavy depression and anxiety and stress for no obvious reason. My body and mind feel tired all the time, I find it difficult concentrating in work. Recently I noticed a problem with my eyes, when I am outside I get floaters in my vision (Black Shawdows), especially against bright backgrounds my eyes feel tired also. I recently went to the optician and he told me he couldnt see any problems with my sight and that floaters are very common.
Avatar n tn Hi There, Sorry you feel so lousy. I had severe endo with adhesions removed during my robotic laparoscopic total hysterectomy. I had that done Oct 15th. I don't know how old you are so it is difficult to suggest something like this. I am 45, never was able to have children, so it was the right thing for me to do. My doc said the only sure fire way to get rid of endometriosis is removal of the ovaries. That is the source of estrogen which feeds the endo.
Avatar n tn • Restlessness and irritability, sometimes anxiety and depression but not always they come and go. • Nasal congestion, always having to use a decongestion spray. • Sore feet which has been diagnosed by the hospital as plantar fasciitis. (probably not related to anything else, except maybe been over weight). Can’t do more than about 20-30 mins walking a day. • Significant weight gain on the upper body but my arms and legs have stayed thin, extreme pot belly puffed out and bloated face.
Avatar m tn i have believe i have issues with mental health, i have been on the hiv prevention forum for hiv anxiety as i had a potential low risk exposure 4 weeks ago, but this is part of a bigger problem, because since i can remember i have always had something to worry about, and suffer from low self esteem, mood swings, mild drug abuse (cocaine on the weekends), loosing my temper, bad paranoia, i don't know where to turn anymore i live in the uk so we have the nhs but mental health seems like a difficul
