Avatar n tn Ive seen MIs in women as young as 29 and in men even younger.

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).

Avatar f tn like, instead of waking up and going straight to work I'd come in here and see what's going on. I know about the tired and worn out.. it's like you're a sponge that's fully saturated, just can't hold any more.

Avatar m tn thyroid problem....estrogen and progesterone problem....hence mood swings and depression from hell.....fatigue....etc etc etc you have read our complaints.

You should feel blessed! This coming from a woman who never had any health issues, never experienced PMS, never had mood swings or any complaints.
Avatar n tn While I don't like to read how bad your doing, I get some comfort in knowing its just not me. I'm slowly working myself off and tappering down but the depression and despare has me think suicidal thoughts several times a day, especially at work when things aren't going well.

But, I'm f-----g determined to get thru this but when..

Avatar m tn it can last from 6 to 9 months and should be treated. And what about chronic depression? What about symptoms of chronic depression? If depression lasts longer than nine months, it is chronic depression. Its episodes go away only to return in a short time.

Hang in there!
Avatar n tn I don't recall if this was an apples-to-apples study, where the same procedure was done on both men and women. I know it was not a bypass study. If I can find the citations, I'll post them for you. I know the media have focused in the past year on so on the fact that women (statistically) do not survive heart attacks as well as men, but I'm not sure where their numbers came from. Perhaps CCF could give us some research citations to check on.

Avatar dr m tn Sleep apnea is a very common condition that if left untreated, can cause anything from depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, heart attack or stroke. It’s estimated that up to 1/4 of all men and 1/10 of all women may have at least some degree of sleep apnea. The frightening statistic is that about 90% of women with sleep apnea are not diagnosed. Instead they are being treated for the complications of untreated sleep apnea, rather than the cause itself.
