Avatar f tn Kind of depends on the level and severity of your condition. I have found that the specific symptoms that many Depressed individuals discuss can vary a lot depending on this level of severity. For example: while a moderatly depressed sufferer could identify with many of my symptoms, (because mine is refractory and cronic) there are many symptoms that I suffer that probably would not be in common with 70% of depression sufferers.

I am 25 y/o and last year I went through a period of time when I felt awful and would feel physically ill and get a rash. I finally went to my doctor and she said it was anxiety. I did some therapy and it worked wonders. I would go your doctor. Hope you feel better.

Avatar m tn All of your symptoms are all good signs of depression/anxiety disorders. I have been struggling with this most of my life, off and on since I was 14 (now 23). Don't let if fool you, it may come and go for a while and doctors may say that you have "bi-polar disorder". I don't believe in prescription antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication, as I have tried a multitude of them in my teen years and none of them helped.

I have suffered from depression all my life and are on anti-depressants at the moment, Fluoxitine 60mg once a day.

Avatar m tn Anxiety and depression often go hand in hand. Some of us have both. I hope you go to see a doctor and describe your symptoms. It should be a relief to talk about how you are feeling. It is your choice whether you want to take medication. You will know whether you can manage your symptoms without. I have done both.
Avatar f tn Many ppl who suffer from depression have complaints of feeling physically unwell as well. It can vary from anxiety to restlessness, feeling suffocated to pain. Depression affects everyone differently BUT never gets better without treatment. Most depression meds don't address the physical problems so if you are suffering physically make sure you mention it to your dr so that they can be sure to cover all the symptoms.

Avatar n tn I decided that I needed to stay on it since I had such a long history of depression. The second time that I went off of it, was to try Savella which many find completely cures their fibromyalgia, but it also has the same properties as an anti-depressant. Due to nausea from the Savella, I couldn't get anywhere near the proper dose for it. I wonder what reasons you have for wanting to get off of it. Good luck.
365138 tn?1234487019 We are not all sure this diagnoses is correct based on other symptoms of schizo.that are not present. We are just trying to get some answers and figure out what is going on. Second opinions are usually great, but we are not really sure how this person should go about getting one seeing that it is several months after the fact. If anyone has a thought on that we would appreciate it.
Avatar n tn Hey guys i have been getting really depressed recently. At the top of my stomach, round about just under my ribcage, it is sometimes painful, and i can see and feel a strong pulse there, even with a t shirt on. Also i havnt been eating properly because of the pain. The thing that is depressing me the most, is the fact that i can constantly feel my pulse everywhere in my body. Even when i am not thinking about it, i can feel it.
1107486 tn?1258404432 Hi Dr. How are you? I have a sister with similar symptoms of depression but I'm not so sure its the right diagnostic She is 14 years old and has anger tantrums. She also likes to be alone. She usually stays in her room all day and says not one word to anyone She has only two friends and has a problem communicating with people. Even with family, shes quiet and shes known them for years. Her attitude is impulsive and talks back to my parents. Also, she likes to start problems for no reason.
Avatar n tn If you have been dx with Chiari, some of the symptoms could be coming from that instead and you may have been misdx. From what I know about it...once you settle into or accept the new situation that is the stressor, then the symptoms usually ease off. To permanently stop it, I would think that you would need to get a good counselor who can teach you behavioral techniques so that you learn to handle new situations differently. Again, if this is Chiari related..

Avatar f tn I've been through a couple of doctors, stopped taking Methimazole last December because it made me feel horrible and finally found a PA who listened. She put me on a low dose of Cytomel (T3) when my FT3 was 3.1 (2-4.4) and after a couple of weeks, I felt so much better. After four months, I began losing some of the weight I gained last year. Now, I have to confess that I'm flat out depressed.
Avatar n tn Medication is good for the symptoms and makes life bearable, but they only mask the underlying cause of your depression and/or anxiety. Until you confront what's really bothering remain stuck. I wish you luck Come back and talk to us if you're going to try again. Support really helps.
