Avatar f tn But nevertheless you don't want to go on them unless you have to - they take weeks to kick in, there are some side effects, there are withdrawal symptoms when going off them, adjusting symptoms when going on them - not terrible things, but things you don't want to deal with unless you have to. Also, try talking to your closer friends about it.
Avatar n tn Well, I'm in the middle of testing now but what I can tell you is that you are supposed to sleep less as you age. This is something you cannot ignore so please look into it even if it has nothing to do with the thyroid. One of the symptoms of hypothyroid that I know of is that your digestion slows down, this means you get more constipated and more time passes between bowel movements (which can lead to all sorts of problems by itself).
Avatar f tn YOU are not helping matters! Surprisingly hard to believe but in some men it is etched into their DNA somewhere that THEY take care of US. Now some go to the extreme insisting we dont work. However others dont mind that we work but they HATE having any part of their attempt to provide for us tampered by whatever reason be it a medical condition, whatever. My husband for example is having unexplainable seizures so he cant drive. He has to depend on me to get to work and pick him up.
1130576 tn?1260154370 Complicating the picture, however, is the fact that a large number of children and adolescents suffering from depression have other associated psychiatric illnesses such as anxiety, disruptive behaviour and drug abuse. The symptoms of depression among this group remain largely the same as in an adult group; however, most of the manifestations due to the illness pertain to adjustment with peers and friends, problems in school, and indifferent or deteriorating scholastic performance.

Avatar m tn As a result, men who are depressed are more likely to talk about the physical symptoms of their depression such as feeling tired rather than symptoms related to emotions.

If you don't have health insurance through your employer like most Americans than you should get a private health insurance plan.

Avatar m tn Anxiety and Depression Chronic gut disorders are associated with higher rates of anxiety and depression. A well-publicized study in mice suggested a possible role for probiotics in reducing anxiety associated with gut inflammation (Bercik, Neurogatroenterol Motil 2011). Mice in the study had a chemically-induced inflammation of their gut and exhibited anxiety-like behavior. Giving 1 billion cells of Bifidobacterium longum NCC3001 for 1 week normalized their behavior.
Avatar f tn It's a weding night - hurray? I don't have the best answers in the world, I know. I was on citalopram for my depression but it was wrong. I knew it after a week. Then you've got to seek out the other alternatives. I'm trying to get a list up on what sorts of antidepressiva-alternatives there are, but it's not working this far. There are tricyclic agents and MAO's and serotonin inhibitors. The alternatives are quite a few! Do never give up on finding the right AD! It really is out there.
Avatar n tn I have been to a clinic for five weeks to try to resolve some of these problems but the treatment and workshops seemed to me to be oriented to cocaine addiction in young men and little other advice. I need to find out what I can do to help myself to get through the final days of my life. I cannot work again. I have two dogs that need to be looked after for a good few years and two duaghters that I love dearly but only see once or twice a year.
Avatar n tn These studies have demonstrated that consuming Tyrosine enhances the production of neurotransmitters and may, in fact, alleviate certain symptoms of depression and improve alertness and focus. Also, studies performed by the military have shown that consuming a L-Tyrosine supplement may enhance cognitive performance. What doses of Tyrosine should be taken? There are no definitive studies showing what doses of L-Tyrosine are most effective.

Avatar m tn Are their specials concerns for young men looking forward to a life of treatment? My Endo started me out on 100 mcg Levothroid. Starting on a half pill for two weeks and then a full dose for afterwards.
Avatar n tn I still walk with a cane because of the nerve damage that goes all the way down to my feet, and I still take all the meds from the urologist (for interstitial cystitis) and psychiatrist, but all in all I think my life is quite improved from two years ago. The back surgeries and bladder disease began in my twenties and led to the severe depression. Before that I had been a nurse aide in a nursing home and was an active young wife and mother of two small children.
Avatar n tn , mood and anxiety disorders. The patient's symptoms and signs may vary in severity depending upon the amounts of alcohol used, how long it was used, and how recently it was used, as well as on the patient's individual vulnerability to experiencing psychiatric symptoms in the setting of excessive alcohol consumption.
Avatar f tn These compounded hormones do not affect fertility, they are not for birth control purposes, but can certainly help with excessive, irregular bleeding, depression, menopause symptoms and other hormonal imbalances. My heart goes out to all you having problems with the pill. I have a 20 year old, 4 months on the pill, experiencing constant anxiety and depression with anger and bouts of crying over small things. I am helping her find alternatives.
Avatar n tn It makes the anxiety bareable, but doesn't do much for my depression. However, there has always been one thing that has relieved all my symptoms; pain medications. First I would like to say something that Im sure everyone knows; these medicines are very addictive and should not be abused. Unfortunately, they are the only things that work for me. The make me completely calm and relaxed, and not wozy and out of it like benzos do.
1894410 tn?1364193655 I've thought a lot about why my dad left. I'm sure there are things I'll never know. My parents married very young in their teens. You must have as well if you were married for 30 years and he is 47. My dad is a brilliant man---- he spent his college years working all night in a factory to support his family (my mom and sister and then me) while going to school during the day on scholarship. He graduated with a perfect 4.0 and went on to get his masters while still working at night.

Avatar f tn I was 28 when those years of terror came flooding in my memory. I was a young mother of 4. Twin Daughters 1, middle daughter 2, Son 3. I had shoved it way back in my mind and tried to forget it. I was over loaded and also a ministers wife and I got sick. Doc told me I was depressed. I started seeing a therapist and was able to over come those bad years and be a whole person and enjoy motherhood. I want to encourage you to continue seeing your theropist.
Avatar n tn The sex hormones may be a factor in these symptoms. That, plus traumatic or major changes in one's life probably accelerate the symptoms. Anyway, I've come to the conclusion that it's very unpleasant, and I will find out how to stop it, but I haven't died from it yet!!!!! I can still walk 3 miles with no trouble.
Avatar n tn 24 hours after your last shot, you will JONES hard and rip a person's head off for a fix. It's Manic Depression in a syringe really. It's not your son's ONLY problem...but it's definitely happening and one of them. People on heroin don't rob banks and/or liquor's the people that have RUN OUT of heroin that do that. Life's a ***** and so are opiates. But she sure is enticing.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Eagles in March of 2006 after going to 2 ENT doctors and having my tonsils removed because they thought it was some kind of cyst or tumor in my tonsils. My symptoms were the foreign object in the throat feeling, trouble swallowing, food getting stuck in my throat, sore throat 24/7, voice changes. After they removed my tonsils the previous December, I still got food stuck in my throat a couple months later and I still felt the huge lump in my throat...

All of these test came up negative.
Avatar n tn Hi I read about your problem..lower rectal pain in young males is a well described phenomenon in medical literature but has no underlying sinister pathology. You do need to see a surgeon for a per rectal examination to evaluate your prostate..self examination is notrecommended at all.
Avatar m tn Look into Undefined Connective Tissue Disease (UCTD) This condition is an early stage of a Connective Tissue Disease, specially at the onset of MCTD. Usually young people in their 20s and 30s get diagnosed with UCTD and MCTD. You have many of the typical symptoms. Seek a good Rheumatologist for further investigation.
Avatar m tn I am prone to irritability, depression, insomnia, achey joints/muscles, some degrees of brain fog in some situations but I figured that was just how I am. Stopped taking it because I felt like I was hastily diagnosed and didn't feel alot of personalized care or good information with the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Anything related to your heart can be very disconcerting. Anxiety only creates more problems. There is peace in knowing your anxiety symptoms are shared by others and you are not going crazy. My father has been almost incapacitated by his fear of cancer and heart attack. Head to you local library/bookstore or even a site like and find some books to help you.
