1105540 tn?1279187117 Just wanted to say to fellow Brits on here, aren't you quite proud of our NHS, i know it can be **** & let us down but at least we dont have to pay stupid money for our DMD's!!
Avatar n tn I have found personally that I get a lot of physical symptoms with depression. I have myself had a CAT scan for pains, but all was negative. I eventually accepted it was all connected with my depression. Funny things can happen that make us believe we are physically ill, and yet it is all due to depression. If you think this is not true in your case, then worry your doctors until they do something.
Avatar m tn - I have been receiving counselling for alcoholism and depression since a month or so before the symptoms started. I'll be the first to admit that I have been extremely unhappy and stressed over the last year, however my alcohol consumption has been hugely reduced in the last four months (maximum drinking one day per week, not heavily). My mood and general outlook are now much much better than I was at my worst (and when the symptoms started).
Avatar f tn I think im depressed. But im not sure. I have most of the symptoms. I've tried to speak to family about it but they just think its apart of growing up. They dont understand!!!! I just want some help or some else to even speak to about it.
Avatar n tn Hyperhidrosis may be congenital or an acquired trait. Congenital means you are born with it, while an acquired trait means you are not; the condition is acquired later in life after birth. Hyperhidrosis may be categorized as being the result of an underlying health condition, or with no apparent cause: Primary idiopathic hyperhidrosis - there is no apparent cause. Idiopathic means "of unknown cause". In the majority of cases the hyperhidrosis is localized.
Avatar n tn I had a tummy tuck on 12th September which resulted in an infection and admitted to an NHS hospital.. I was re-opened and at the moment am receiving daily packing for an open wound at specific times of the day my stomache is brick hard and swollen. I think I also have a couple of stitches inside which are trying to get out is this part of the recovery.
Avatar f tn Okay so I've had issues with depression way before becoming pregnant. And now being pregnant I of course cannot take my meds. Has anyone else dealt with depression issues before/during pregnancy? No certain reason behind them, just depressed. And does it usually cause you to be more at risk for post partum depression? How can I deal with this easier? Now and once my little man is here?
Avatar n tn Yes, I guess I should do something - but I feel a bit guilty about wasting the time and money of the NHS (National Health Service - in the UK). From what I understand, 1mm ST depression (upsloping) is borderline. Coronary Angiography is meant to be the "golden standard" for identifying atherosclerosis/ischemia..but that sounds a bit scary too. There's a 1:1000 chance of things going "pear-shaped" ...

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 f tn ve been diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, feel depressed a lot of the time and cut regularly. I go for therapy with the NHS but I still feel terrible. Does anyone know how I can start to feel better?
1338204 tn?1288831382 Today I received a letter that my dermatologist has sent to my GP, asking if he is able to get my acne scars removed on the NHS due to the bad depression it has caused me over the years, I just want to know if there would a chance that i will be funded for this, as it would be life changing for me, i dont want a new face just to go out of the house without feeling ugly and depressed, thanks
Avatar f tn Hi I have some symptoms that are causing me concern. I have an increase in white patches on my skin and after extensively googling as to what it could be I have narrowed it down to vitiligo or morphea which I believe are both caused by autoimmune illness. I don't see my doctor about this until Thursday so that he can know for sure what my skin problem is.
Avatar n tn While those are some of the many symptoms of depression, "like Leftcoast said" that can be hard to detrmine. To me it sounds like mild to moderate Depression. Matbe mild bi-polar symptoms. Then again you are very young and at 13 to 14 your body is transitioning from adolesence to adult. For femails especially this can be a rough transition and can manifest an overload of emotions dure to hormone changes in your body.
1215490 tn?1319837441 So I went for a dr appointment yesterday to discuss our ttc time and get some advice. Well, I waited for 20min and had a chat with the dr that lasted maximum 10 min, maybe even only 5. She was very nice, don't get me wrong. But basically told me here they don't do any blood tests or sperm tests until at least 1 year ttc (I'm only 8mths..... So I can probably wait a couple more months without going insane right?) and only start trying any other options after 2 years!
Avatar n tn Husband had to call NHS Direct
Avatar m tn I then developed a white coating on my tongue. I attended an NHS clinic in London and had the 4th generation duo test six weeks after exposure, it was negative. I have had no other sexual activity since this incident and have returned to the NHS clinic for a further 4th generation duo test after three months from exposure, this test was again negative. My sporadic prickly heat (intense burning) and rash to parts of my body and white tongue still persist.

Avatar n tn I am going to get a second opinion privately since my GP thought it was significant enough to warrant a referral, if he finds different from the NHS GP I will file a complaint, as I am sick of NHS specialists putting everything down to depression related illnesses. Maybe you could do the same? Have you asked about Hypopituitism?

Avatar f tn At the age of 19, I had a bout of depression and was given and short course of tablets. When asking about counselling for the OCD, anxiety and depression, I was told, "sorry we don't provide it". 18 months later I feel overloaded with rituals and anxiety. I lie in bed for as long as I can until I have no option but to get up and start the exhausting day all over again.
Avatar m tn Top doctor's chilling claim: The NHS kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year
Avatar f tn After stating these few things about its physiological role, my intended message is that it is not a test to be used to diagnose, or monitor depression, but can be used when the patient shows signs and symptoms physically, of a high or low level. It is very complex, and currently being researched, but is not well understood by many physicians at this point. I hope this was informative, and not just more confusing.
Avatar n tn i wish i had more sleep.
