1302779 tn?1287408629 Hello all I am just posting to see if any other men suffer from chronic migraine. I was diagnosed in april with "hermicrania continua" a chronic migraine/cluster mix. I see many women post and seems like studies say that more women suffer from chroni migraine then men?
Avatar n tn I had no symptoms whatsoever at the time and refused treatment. A year later the symptoms had manifested enough that I could tell something was wrong and I went to my Dr. and started treatment. I can't tell you that you will definitely manifest symptoms at some point, but that is what happened with me.
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 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 n tn According to blood tests, his thyroid levels are now where they should be, but he is still experiencing symptoms of hypothyroid. Most of the symptoms he is still suffering with seem to be mental in nature - depression, irritability, and 'brain fog'. He is in the I.T. field (mainly database stuff) and these symptoms have severely hampered his ability to work. He can't seem to focus or problem-solve. This has been a nightmare for both of us. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn Notice your function went down after you went off your meds. My doctor says the goal of depression treatment is complete remission. e.g. I still take meds but no longer consider depression and significant influence in my day to day life. I don't "wait for the other shoe to drop." I'm almost there. Please don't give up. You are worth it.
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.
572651 tn?1531002957 I too think women are dismissed very often. But, as we know, it absolutely happens to men. I also think that there is a lot of advertisement where women's health is concerned, warning signs, commercials, etc., however, when you finally decide to go to the Dr. for it to get a good check, it's as if they've not been see the ads, read the articles, etc., (especially where the heart is concerned). I don't understand it, but it does seem disproportionate to me. Why is this?
Avatar n tn But, like many, I do fear the potential for permanent sides and therefore have to weigh the risk of treatment duration (or for some treatment itself) against the benefits of the drugs. Snook, not to put you on the spot, but I vaguely remember some time ago, your well-respected hepatologist told you at your first consulation when you asked about extending treatment. I forgot his exact response, but didn't it infer that the risks of a more extended treatment outweighed the benefits?
Avatar f tn I am currently taking Wellbutrin (now for about 3 months)...it is not relieving my depression symptoms in the least. Talked to my doctor (psychiatrist) this afternoon and explained the situation to him. My symptoms read from the pages of a textbook....feeling depressed, feeling restless, difficulty concentrating, crying jags, unfounded feelings of worthlessness, feelings of sadness, loss of interest in normal daily things and things I used to enjoy, forgetfullness, easy mood changes etc.
Avatar n tn The following is a brief discription of Major Depresssion including treatment strategies. MAJOR DEPRESSION Major depressions are probably based on some as of yet poorly defined biochemical imbalance in the brain. It may come on at any age, striking women twice as often as men, & affecting up to a tenth of the population at some time in their life. A major life stress may or may not have occurred first.
372876 tn?1215132892 Physical and mental health are so intertwined that finding the root of the problem one is having can lead to a frustrating trial-and-error search for effective treatment. Often a few small problems build together into a group of unpleasant symptoms, so I urge you to be patient with yourself as you explore different treatment choices to find what works best for you.
Avatar f tn The following tables list selected natural treatments for depression that have good scientific support for a beneficial role for treating depression.
Avatar n tn Zyprexa and Zoloft may both cause decreased sex drive. In most cases if the decreased sexual drive is due to depression, than when depression improves with treatment than the sexual desire should improve. Sometimes it doesn't and different treatment strategies should be offered. There are medications which may improve your sex drive, such as Wellbutrin. It is best to discuss your concerns with a psychiatrist.
Avatar n tn what are the withdrawal symptoms? is it treatable?What is the treatment? What is depression? Is it treatable?What is the tereatment? I know what dissaccociation is. What do I do to get out of this condition? How can I help myself to get some help to help myself?
484508 tn?1290014144 Depression, lack of energy, loss of sexual interest, may be symptoms of low testosterone. Your physician has wisely chosen to repeat the test to confirm the value. Usually morning testosterones are highest though the variation in the course of the day tends to diminish as men get older. Generally, though, I would suggest a morning value along with a prolactin (another hormone that rarely is related to low testosterone) as well as a check on your thyroid function.
Avatar m tn So that would be roughly 1040 acts of oral sex in the past two years. Many of these are the same men, but my personal list has about 100-120 men on it, which I realize is unusually high. I am concerned that I may have passed gonorrhea on to these men while I might have been asymptomatic. Could you please provide some more information on this? 5) Regarding this hypersexuality: Several years ago, I was put on bupropion. This drug combined with psychotherapy saved me from suicidal depression.
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 f tn Saw my HMO he prescribed Zolof to start & did complete blood work right there. My depression/mood swings (crying, angry, frustrated, no motivation, ect...) Doc said are very likely to be after effects of my treatment, as I have had symptoms for quite sometime now & didn't seek treatment until now. Unfortunately, it takes about 4 wks until the med begins to really work. I'm glad I finally started to address the issues I've been having & that I came back to this forum.
Avatar f tn So it is possible that getting the Thyroid levels in proper order MAY solve the depression like symptoms. It is however possible that depression is truly present in which case that has to be dealt with as well. It all depends on how sick/depressed she is. But I personally wouldn't like taking mind and mood altering drugs as a first step. I would try to be patient and wait for the Thyroid meds to start to work. This may take up to 6 to 8 weeks.
Avatar n tn I finally got to post!! I have been experiencing severe withdrawal/depression the last few days, so much that I have found myself crying on a few occasions, I have been feeling like there is no way out of this awful life style, and if I get close to being clean, I get scared when I think of leading a sober life..... I can't handle it anymore, I lie to everyone, I hurt everyone and I waste all my godamn money on drugs, what the hell is the point?
Avatar m tn I think you need to seek the help of a psychiatrist for your symptoms and I recommend that you get evaluated for depression. I definitely see a problem with your health just as you do, but there is nothing more that can be offered to you from an endocrine point of view and no hormonal treatment is going to relieve your symptoms. I would also urge you to try meditation and/or yoga to reduce stress.
4190741 tn?1370181432 Since women tend to report more symptoms of depression than men, this contradicts a general belief that women are more inclined to struggle with both. The findings were based on an analysis of 57 peer-reviewed studies, representing data on 6,670 people (civilians and military personnel) who suffered from PTSD. Researchers conclude that 52 percent of the PTSD cases also reported symptoms of depression.
Avatar f tn And according to this new study, symptoms of depression can also be caused by the Metabolic Syndrome (insulin resistance), which many HCV patients have (even genotype 2/3).

Avatar f tn He already undergone 3 times radioactive treatment and is taking PTU as medicine. Right now he is already 31 yrs old. Two yrs ago he stopped taking medicine because his blood test results become normal. But these past few weeks he experience muscle weakness and weight loss. He found out that his TSH is0.01 FT3 13.51 & FT4 36.73. Does this means he is again hyperthyroid? Im worried because its a very abnormal result, even he already undergone radioactive treatment.
Avatar n tn I am 50 and this has been the worst year of my life healthwise, I have symptoms began during treatment that have not left and my cognition, fatigue and depression have sky rocketed. I feel your pain and know you have so much more to deal with than me. I have 1 child and need the income at this point to keep my home, if it were me I would run back to NY if you know you can get help there and maybe reserve some of your remaining savings.
Avatar n tn There is no reason why you should be suffering to this extent. As for treatment length, you're right again. 72-week treatment is still reserved for those who responded much later than you did. You're right on schedule and it is strange that she would be talking about extension. Might be worth investing in a second opinion so you have some medical backup.
748543 tn?1463449675 I, as most responsible medical professionals, believe in using the most conservative successful form of treatment. As one who treats patients with most severe TMD symptoms, I can assure you that my patients are unable to manage the pain associated with these conditions by simply receiving counseling on their habits. What's more is that I find that dental malocclusion is frequently one of the principle causes of the TMD.
Avatar n tn If you want some more information let me know I will mail you again.Please help him sir.If you yourself can't give treatment please let me know the other sources in India itself.
