1673455 tn?1305215720 medication is not a play thing, anti depressants carry risks and won't give you a high if you're not depressed, they can cause weight gain, weight loss, irregular heart beats and loads of other serious side effects. Depression presents differently from one person to another but generally these are some of the symptoms :- Feelings of despair/sadness Changes in appetite/ weight loss or gain Feeling tired all the time Thoughts of suicide or harming oneself Sleeping problems..

Avatar f tn I think the depression symptoms are less about the secondary thoughts of poor body image etc caused from the weight gain. I believe they are more direct. As Thyroid hormone sets the pace of the entire metabolism of the body, I suspect (and this is only my thoughts and theory) that if your cells in your brain are not responding as quickly as they would if there were proper thyroid in the blood that may effect general lethargy and depression itself.
Avatar f tn In the UK where I live, I have found that psychiatrists only deal with medication, nothing else. I am 71 now, but I lost my job because of depression. I went onto invalidity benefit until I received my retirement pension. Because of loss of job I could not pay mortgage, and had to move from a house to a 1 bedroomed flat. So much of our life is affected by the depression. You sound like a fighter, and I commend you for that.
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.
5143317 tn?1383751420 I'm a little low in vitamin D, but that's it. The dr seems to think that the lack of weight loss, weight gain, and depression/mood swings/lack of emotional control I've been having is from a lack of sleep. Which is another symptom I've been having. I've not had a good nights sleep in I couldn't tell you when. So here's what I need to know. 1) has anyone experienced this, could lack of sleep be the cause of these symptoms. 2) what did you do?
Avatar n tn can make neurological symptoms worse. However, one has to be concerned that the symptoms are real and that anxiety is making them worse and not causings them. Our perception of reality can vary according to our mental state. This does not make the symptoms less real to the individual however. If a full work up was done, then your symptoms might be due to a conversion disorder, anxiety, etc. I would first make sure that the symptoms are not real.
Avatar n tn i would say everyone 's ARS symptoms are different. from what i heard by chat, they all experiences different degree of Fever, but some of them had sore throat, some had rash, some went to hosipital for intensive care. even their symptoms occur on different period, the fast one like on day 8, and quite many said after 3 weeks.
5864500 tn?1380893197 There are different kinds of depression, but I think what you're talking about is clinical or chronic depression. Unfortunately. most people diagnosed with clinical depression are kind of stuck with it. That doesn't mean it cannot be managed and treated however. Like you said, it's kind of like diabetes or's something you'll always have, but it can be controlled, and there will be periods where it's a non-issue and other times when it's a big issue.
Avatar f tn Neurotic or reactive depression has a clear environmental precipitating factor, such as the death of a spouse, or other significant loss, such as the loss of a job. If you have experienced five or more of these symptoms within the same two week period,especially if a depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure are among your symptoms, this could be indicative of an episode of depression. The symptoms should not be accounted for by another illness, drugs of abuse or prescription medications.
Avatar n tn I have been under a lot of stress with my job transfer and a few months ago had a full blown panic attack. Prior to this had violent episodes of diarrhea after eating certain foods (food allergies?) I have since been diagnosed with anxiety and am currently taking Lexapro. I had a complete physical,CBC,thyroid,liver function tests after attack. All normal except elevated SGOT,SGPT. I am a hypochondriac so Im thinking liver cancer(no other symptoms).
Avatar f tn I meant to add that my depression symptoms have increased since job loss three months ago and I am not sure if this strange period could also be a result of increased anxiety and stress

Avatar n tn Question (1) I have been on approved FMLA Leave for what was diagnosed as severe depression and anxiety- "short term memory loss" due to a hostile and threatening workplace. I had a supervisor who was like a dictator who got up in your personal space, make up bogus charges on performance evaluations and verbally threated me when there was no one around in the office to hear or witness what was going on.
Avatar m tn My question is, can depression manifest irself with symptoms such as this? I am wondering if there could be a delayed effect from depression, meaning even though i am now working and all is well, that the symptoms are continuing at a sub conscious level. Anyways, bottom line totally confused and scared of a bad outcome/diagnosis.

7721201 tn?1393636976 01(normal) and T4K was .7(low) . I know that many symptoms of depression are also symptoms of hypothyroid. I feel like doctors aren't catching something and are prescribing more antidepressants instead. I have ALWAYS been health issues whatsoever. I don't doubt I have runs in my family. But, ever since I started taking Antidepressants I have headaches and ODD symptoms : Forgetfulness, Memory Loss, Difficulty Concentrating.
Avatar m tn Such as change in home life (moving), divorce (or break-up), environmental, new or loss of job, any significant change. With this someone may have to be counseled even put on medication until symptoms subside. It takes work and heart-ache but can be worked through. Being depressed is a feeling haveing depression is a disorder. Anyone who tells you being depressed is not an illness does not understand mental illness and shouldn't open their mouth.

1488265 tn?1288164757 Everything your saying makes complete sence you have serious depression and anxiety. Are you in therapy? becuase if you aren't (or are) you should start or continue it. Also, medication helps a lot. Maybe Prozac isnt the medication for you? Maybe talk to your phyciatrist about other options. I originally was on Lexapro but switched to Pristiq because Lexapro just wasn't doing it for me. Pristiq however is starting to take a good effect on me.
372876 tn?1215132892 -Insomnia (all night long), often accompanied with anxiety/difficulty to breath -Abdominal discomfort, that may persist for hours or days, but is not intestinal in nature -Tingling sensation in the back, when walking -Difficulty to concentrate -Loss of energy -Loss of interest in prior joyful activities -Very poor QOL I did not buy the depression case, because I have been super-optimistic for 45 years of life. Recently, I had my testosterone level tested.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have ocd and anxiety and up until a year ago had bad depression. Iv been on meds for about a year now but over the last 2 weeks have noticed my thoughts are bothering me again and making me feel very down. My moods completely dropped and I'm worried my meds have stop having an effect. Last time I felt this way was over a year ago when I was in deep depression, and now I'm scared as I'm having some of the same symptoms pop up again.
Avatar m tn For example I don't enjoy working out, it's more of a choir now, I hate thinking about going into work because though I get paid well I don't like my job but based on my skills and the current job market I can't do any better. In the past I one good job but I was bored and didn't make enough money there so I left to purse a business that was successful until the recent recession wiped me out so I scrambled through about three unstable jobs that led me to this one.
Avatar m tn I understand the cost part and in the beginning when I decided I had to do something or I thought I was going to die, I had a baby and wife to take care of back then so I had to do something. I was lucky enough to have a large company I worked for and I just went to human resources and told them I just could not go on.....They sent me straight to counselling for two visits and she sent me to a psychiatrist as I was in bad shape.
Avatar m tn Mental Fog is very much part of depression and a lot of the other symptoms you describe. Also it is imortant to get on top of these things early as you could get worse without treatment. That happened to me in the past. You can get treatment for these problems and you can improve very quickly.
646779 tn?1281999641 I also have an older 8 year old little boy, and our newest addition to the family is my daughter of 6 months old. I have (in the last few weeks) felt the symptoms of depression coming back. I am always worrying about the children, mostly scared of everyday situations and challenges, I've become afraid of stressful situations, anxious about the housework and falling behind with it. I find I cannot think clearly at all. I am forgetful and seem to be having short term memory loss.
Avatar n tn It is hard to adjust back to the way you were before the pregnancy - for me because nothing else seemed important when I was pregnant than that little bean in my tummy and all of a sudden it was gone. A loss is a loss and your feelings are normal. Try to hope for the future and look forward to when you can start trying again. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn Depression is a known symptom of low thyroid. Is it the only cause for depression? certainly not. But it is AWEFULLY coincidental that when you have half of your thyroid removed and you then become depressed that it would seem at least possible that the depression could be related to insufficient thyroid. T4 only does not work for everybody. But it is also possible that you simply were under medicated with the T4 only dosage.
