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?
1228164 tn?1267423226 I have suffered from depression since 1985 and after non stop antidpressants, my depression took on different and more severe symptoms and I was rediagnoised as Bipolar. I have gone thru numerous antidepressants over the years. I finally have found a p-doc that approaches my MI agressively. I have been switched to different medications every 2 weeks until we finally found the correct "cocktail" of medication to treat my symptoms. I am currently taking 300 mg.
Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
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 n tn Or is there at least the slightest chance that my symptoms could have an underlying psychical cause like something to do with glands or hormones or god knows whatever else, I have heard that sometimes these kind of symptoms can have a physical cause or be symptoms of another condition. I first had the onset of these symptoms a few years back, my doctors just think I am depressed and prescribed me an anti depressant which has helped to lift my mood, but not done much else for the other stuff.
993844 tn?1249690137 I too get the floaters in my eyes and have been told there is no relation to my MS it is just aging (not that it made me feel better) All I can say is to be thankful that your symptoms have not reached the level of an emergency and know that even though it seems like forever, 12 weeks will come faster than you think. I know depression and anxiety are symptoms people with MS suffer, but of course MS is not the only cause.
Avatar f tn Your condition sounds serious. Does not sound like depression. You must talk to someone about this. Will your parents help? You are too young to go through this alone. PLEASE seek help.
Avatar m tn You may, not making a diagnosis, but you may have something further going on then simple depression, there are about 8 different types of depression, as well as mood disorders which have depression as a symptom. It's nothing you have done, nor should you blame yourself in any way (I wish I could give you a hug) it's your brain. The brain is such a complex organ, far more complex then even the biggest computer out there, and science has only tapped the surface.
Avatar m tn When I went to my doctor I was diagnosed with depression, I said that I thought that I might have hypothyroidism but he dismissed it because I didn't have the 'major' symptoms as he put it, of weight gain, hair loss, or sensitivity to the cold.
Avatar m tn There is a list of about 12 specific symptoms that can indicate a serious mental depression. Are you suffering from these symptoms? It really sounds like a lot of this problem your having is situational. If it is situational than most likly just seeing a Therapist on a regular basis should help a lot. As for taking medication....
Avatar n tn My Story I’m trying to think back now to where I think all this began – probably around 8 years ago now, I experienced a couple of periods of strange symptoms, the main one being a light headed and floaty feeling. This would go on for a month or so, and then dissappear as quickly as it arrived. At this time I was very fit, played football 4 times a week, and generally felt on top of the world, as a young 25 year old lad should.
Avatar f tn To get out of it I went through hell!!!!!!!! and I continue with the depression and my physician says that I also have Bipolar symptoms. I think Cognitive therapy is the best choice for depression or a life coach that really knows what is doing.
2217782 tn?1394367572 Around August of last year I was put on 10mg of citalopram by my doctor to deal with my depression. Going to the doctors was very stressful for me as I am the sort of person who normally clams up about these sorts of things. Now I fear because of this I didnt get everything across to my doctor properly. By October I took myself off the ADs as I felt they were no longer working and my mother didnt want me asking for a bigger dosage.
Avatar f tn studies show that antidepressants may up the rate of relapse into depression.4 The study, just published in the journal Frontiers of Psychology, found that people who took antidepressants and then went off of them had recurring bouts of major depression at almost double the rate of those who simply toughed it out through the blues, minus the drugs. The rate of relapse was 42 percent for those who formerly took antidepressants, compared to 25 percent of those who avoided drugs.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the reassurance. I've been spiraling down into a depression because I can't get over these symptoms. I am a big eater and I haven't wanted much food at all in the past two weeks. That alone worries me to death. Accompanied with the headaches, very sore throat and diarrhea I have all but convinced myself that I've ruined my family's lives. What is your situation? What symptoms have you had?
Avatar m tn i also suffer from hayfever now i only experience muscle spasms (all over) the rash and still swollen glands and it is now the 12th week since exposure the girl i ahd slept with also supposingly had fever, sore throat and headaches but i know i cannot of caught the flu off her due to me not getting close enough to of caught it.
Avatar n tn For the last five weeks I have been experiencing flu-like symptoms that last most of the day, until early evening. When the flu-like symptoms end, they are replaced by hot flash-type symptoms. (I'm post menopausal). Before the surgery, I had hyperthyroidism - severe fatigue, nervousness, very dry and itchy skin, problems concentrating, very fast heart rate, plus heart beat very hard, so hadn't had a restful nights sleep in about 8 months.
Avatar f tn I don't care what anyone says, when some of us go through this nasty stage in our lives, the hormones can get way out of wack and create more anxiety and depression symptoms. My worst time of it was actually during peri-menopause. Even the IBS can be worse during this time. I remember my psychiatrist telling me that the brain gut reaction time is split second. So from the time you feel the anxiety, your gut has already received the message that you are scared and it reacts with...
Avatar m tn Hi Gleb, These symptoms all fit with Lyme disease, but they also fit perfectly inside the subset of Lyme symptoms that correspond with hypothyroid symptoms. What is your alcohol tolerance? One of the major suspicious factors for lyme disease is that suddenly you cannot handle alcohol like you used to.
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 Hello from Rome, Italy. Bad news unfortunately for a radiologist. Unchanged symptoms after bilateral cataract surgery (June and July 2016) for hyper mature cataract and PEX (left eye) and mature cataract (right eye): bilateral symmetric negative dysphotopsia (no signs of change), glare, photophobia, night flashes. Actually worsened recently by dry eyes and episodes of superficial infection (left eye) and blurring of vision in the PEX left eye. Don't really know what to do..
294596 tn?1193453025 People who fake can do something about it and they may gain in monetary terms , eg benefits But also neuros dx a lot of people as having as zilla said on another post conversion disorder eg people who have ms type symptoms which are really psychological but manifest as physical ! They basically cannot stop the symptoms as its an underlying emotional trauma which is causing the physical symptoms .
1651508 tn?1322144880 Doctors confuse these conditions with depression/anxiety since depression or anxiety can be a major symptom. Because of the NHS and because many doctors are unaware of or disregard these diseases, it is hard to get a proper diagnosis and help in the UK.
Avatar f tn ) thanks x Image is of private test 6 months ago same week NHS dr test came back fine
Avatar f tn Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
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.
806806 tn?1239516614 Endo not interested in my microadenoma or symptoms which are put down to cfs (bucket syndrome by nhs). So frustrating. I have pretty much given up now. Have you ad to notify dvla? I will have to now, concerned re outcome. Lost job too..grrrrr.
Avatar n tn I have a disease called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, so named because it has symptoms of several diseases that "overlap" such as lupus, scleroderma, polymyositis and rheumatoid arthritis. It is an autoimmune disease as are these others, and MS as well. I am not familiar with ALS.
Avatar n tn As spacie_05 said, it hurts everywhere. There are also a lot of other symptoms that go alongside FMS, the really common ones are irritable leg syndrome, IBS, and when you wake up in the morning you feel worse than you did when you went to sleep. Many others include drug intolerance, depression, allergies, etc. etc. etc. the list goes on and on. If you are experiencing pain and your doctor does not seem to know, or is treating you like it is all in your mind, then 'change your doctor'.
