709686 tn?1277432159 Hola, Over the past 4 years I have watched as my health as gone from bad to worse. I have headaches all the time, body aches, anxiety, depression, extreme mood swings, certain foods now bohter me suchs as dairy, bread, pasta..etc. I was hoping someone could tell me what the major symptoms for men are? I have had 4 CBC's done and each of them has returned telling me I am perfectly healthy...I still feel like garbage every day.
Avatar m tn Before I actually went and got help for my depression, I simply could not wrap my head around the idea of "talking" to somebody and have my issues just go away. Obviously, that is too simple. But it had always been my impression that you "manned up" and "muscled through" things like this. In the mean time, I was sitting on a pressure cooker that had been near the point of bursting for a few decades..... I had my diagnosis broken down like this.
Avatar dr m tn The first group includes men who can’t stay asleep or keep waking up, feeling exhausted when the alarm goes off, and they feel as if they only slept for 2-3 hours. The other group includes men who undergo definitive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (whether via a positive air pressure machine, a dental device or via surgery), who are able to achieve deep sleep for the first time in years. These men have tears of joy.
Avatar f tn My son is 13 and has boobs like a girl, he is overweight and we are working on his weight but I don't see how it will help as it is already hanging and bigger than mine. I am very concerned as he now slouches when standing and does not even take his clothes off in front of anyone and is depressed. I am very concerned about my son. Please advise... please help.

Avatar n tn he has to know he doesnt have to suffer with depression but it is hard for many men to admit they need help. It is often seen as a sign of weakness when in fact the head isnt getting the right connections to the brain with dopamine and seritonin. see if he will look at these posts here and maybe we can help him to get help.keep telling him about the options he has and let him know because you love him that you are concerned. I will keep you and him in my prayers.
Avatar f tn I have not been diagnosed with depression, however I feel as if I do suffer from the symptoms! I am scared to ask my family and friends for their help because I have always been a very outgoing individual but recently have found myself batteling my emotions. Its becoming too tiring and tedius to hide these things from my family but dont know how supportive they will actually be I just need some type of reassurance that things will be ok.

215461 tn?1331862765 I guess it was only a matter of time before depression grabbed me with its nasty claws. The constant anxiety has finally won over. I want to live life. I look out the window longing for some normalcy. I feel lonely and vulnerable. It's as if I am the only one in my world, physically. I'm tired. It's so tiring to constantly be fighting a battle you can't win.

Avatar m tn I know MS affects women more so than men so I'm wondering how many men are here . I'm not diagnosed with MS but I have quite a few symptoms and no real causes . I spoke at length with a friend who has MS and she thinks I should be more forcefull when dealing with my doctors . I've been diagnosed with ET , CTS and cronic tendonitis but those and all my other problems lead me to think there is something more going on .
Avatar m tn Dear all, don't angry with me! Please, read my situation. I am a Bangladeshi (that is a developing country). One day I had a protected vagina sex with a sex worker. This was only one & first sex with prostitute. HIV Eliza 1 & 2 test after 45 days, 105 days (3.5 months) had done that was negative. But after 6.
718687 tn?1232017036 This is my first day using pain tracker, i feel it will help me better understand my physical symptoms of depression. And im really looking forward to a week,a month from now and see what the patterns are.
Avatar f tn It is quite common for women especially but also for men to be diagnosed with depression when it really is low thyroid condition. Dr's are seemingly quick to prescribe anti-depressants but loath to test for Free T3 and Free T4 or believe that depression symptoms are associated with low Thyroid. I think it is a pharmaceutical conspiracy. They can make more money selling 6 drugs to cover (not cure) 6 different symptoms than a single drug that cures the source of all 6 symptoms!
4116706 tn?1351907846 Wrong date, should be Saturday night to Sunday morning. Hubby having problems with depression tonight "because I am negative or arguing". Loud talking, crying, hitting the desk, etc. did not help my sleep. If I got up to help him, he would get more upset. I also think he is afraid because of surgery Friday in Dallas.

1153011 tn?1262115915 Have thought about suicide so many times today. Feel so depressed. Can't be bothered to do anything... it took every ounce of strehgth I had just to get up and go for a shower. Still feel disgusting and repulsive. Even if I did reach my weight loss goal I'd still never be beautiful or amazing. I'd still just be pathetic.
Avatar n tn Low T levels can also inhibit the effectiveness of anti-depressants. It is thought that 75% of men currently being diagnosed with depression are actualy suffering from low T, it is a major educational issue to get the message across doctors heads who havent steped in school for a decade. Here are the symptoms of Low T: http://www.mayoclinic.
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. In either case you need health insurance for your hepatitis C, liver disease or depression as these can be expensive to treat. If you don't have health insurance through your employer like most Americans than you should get a private health insurance plan.
2024274 tn?1332956426 We expected this with this tx but im just worried that last night when i called she told me she cant do this anymore and feels like dying just to rest from all this that she has been through in the last 10 years that her liver has got so bad.I always give her some incouraging and supporting words and i know they help but not for long im afraid of depression.
Avatar f tn Hi there and welcome. Wny do you feel that? Is it because of his sexual desire? Truth is, many men do have low libido and still have enough testosterone. What other symptoms are you seeing that have you concerned? If you look at it from a medical point of view, he is less likely to take offense. If you say "you aren't manly, you never want to have sex", he might feel hurt.
3250415 tn?1347310615 loss of interest in normal activities, reduced sex drive, insomnia or excessive sleeping, changes in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness and thoughts of suicide. Men and women experience many of the same symptoms of depression, but the way women cope with the symptoms and the causes behind the disease vary. While depression affects all ages, it’s most common in women between the ages of 40 and 59. Hormone changes, life events and biological differences can all contribute to depression.
682891 tn?1226692630 Going to a phyiciatrist will help talk about medications. Medications will lessen the symptoms of depression while therapy will help get to the root of your issues and sort them out. Medication and therapy combined is the best treatment. Especially therapy if you are uncomfortable speaking with people close to you about your depression!
Avatar n tn I have been reading the archives about depression and while some of the symptoms of depression are like mine, I also have just the opposite. I have withdrawn from my family and friends and society and I have also lost interest in activities which used to give me pleasure. I don't like loud noise and I am quick to anger. But, where as most people lose their appetites and have problems sleeping, mine are just the opposite.
