Depression symptoms self test

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms self test


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.
5368438 tn?1366988615 I recently took about 3 Do I have depression test and I scored really high. They all said that I had severe depression. I'm not sure if those test we're accurate so I came on this site to ask people who do have depression if this is depression. I have low self-esteem. I'm always downing myself. I don't consider myself to be beautiful, gorgeous or anything--that's why when people call me stuff like that I let it go in one ear and out the other.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry that your depression is untreatable, and with all those ECTs it has not improved. I presume no anti-depression medication has been effective in your case either. I presume you have tried them all. You certainly don't sound pathetic, I admire you for being such a fighter. Seems the doctors and psychiatrists have given up on you. Well I do not know what to suggest you do next, seems to me you have tried so hard.
Avatar m tn Trying not to do the self test for enlarged nodes, waste of time I know but the anxiety is tough. No fever as of yet. Have lost a few pounds but under the circumstances, I'm not surprised. Next week is 6 week mark so I plan on getting tested then but would like your opinion for my heads sake. I'm assuming writing this that you can refer to last post for more detailed on the encounter, but just in case.
Avatar n tn the reason everyones ars symptoms are different is because it is unrelated to hiv. either their neg,or never had a risk. 2.cant self diagnose hiv through symptoms, proven time and time again, symptoms are unreliable. testing tells the story, if 6 wks then 3 mos test, then by conservative testing your neg. with a risk. if no risk, then no need for testing. good luck.
Avatar f tn its a test and depression is a test for us....we ll be held accountable when we die for our good and wrong deeds. i wish you best of luck.....
Avatar f tn I don't know about you but I definately have depression like symptoms but when they put me on antidepressents it made me hyper so when I told the psychologist that she said I'm not depressed. I'm now on antidepressent for a gi problem, and it didn't change my mood so far. It didn't help my gi problems either. I'd suggest ask for a specialist in chiari one ns and see what they have to say.
319532 tn?1250992176 The prednizone pack really helped for a little while. Anyway, depression is one of the symptoms of lupus. I can not have any reason to be depressed and have a flare hit and boom...I'm depressed, for no reason. So I KNOW it is a definite symptom. But understand that you are at a point in your studies that you know what all of this means and you're putting your symptoms together. But it's possible that you might have something less serious.
739242 tn?1234221427 I have to wonder if this hasn't done enough damage to your psyche to warrant a visit with a doctor who could help you with what might be some understandable depression or anxiety that's tagged along with your PVC's. I know many people report PVC quantity going way down once they aren't as worried about them. Stuff to think about, anyway. Maybe you can pursue a few of those avenues and fight to spend more years with your family before you give up. Just my $.02, anyway.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the forum. Yes, of course there is hope for you, there is always hope. Everyone here is addicted and some are very successful. You have to be careful on cutting out the benzos and I believe you are taking one (ativan). I could be wrong and someone will correct me if so. If you could talk to your rhem doc it would be a great start to a clean life. We all lose ourselves in these evil drugs and after you are clean for some time, you will feel so much better.
358304 tn?1409713092 I then had a work project that was a month long project that got to be REALLY stressful towards the end. I was getting my anxiety symptoms slowly... it started out with a nervous stomach... then no appetite... Then I started getting IBS symptoms... and of course that scared me and it made my anxiety worse, and I lost more appetite... I went to the Dr. twice for the IBS just to make sure that's all it was... and he said that he didnt need to run any tests b/c that's all it was was IBS.
5509652 tn?1391232415 Since depression is only a part of a spectrum of illnesses -- it could be bipolar , pure depression , rarely borderline or rarely sideeffect of antidepressant .. Since depression is getting better good . But if its bipolar depression a mood stabiliser has to be added . Speak to your doctor about these concerns . If these violent impulses come only after starting the antidepressant it may be a cause then that too has to be discussed urgently with dr .
Avatar n tn TSH taken 6/2/03 5.33 TSH taken 6/13/03 2.32 TSH taken 11/15/03 3.58 TSH taken 6/21/04 3.39 TSH taken 5/5/05 4.52 (and started .25mcg levothroixine TSH taken 6/14/05 2.24 TSH taken 7/28/05 2.49 (increased to .50 mcg levothroixine) TSH taken 8/8/05 4.15 On 10/17 I called my doctor and asked her to increase me to .75 mcg and was also changed to synthroid. I go in tomorrow to discuss all of this with her and find out if she has any record of T3 and T4 levels.
Avatar n tn Glucose alone can't tell the full story. The symptoms are not carefully observed during the test - the classic story is of a man who went for his test, drank the sugar solution, became violent, and smashed the furniture in the waiting room. Upon leaving, he was given a bill for the furniture, and a test stamped "normal!" His glucose level didn't go below the level that lab used as an absolute criterion!
323525 tn?1229342647 Very likely, BUT, first things first. Have you gone and gotten a good head to toe physical? If not, please do. And once that is out of the way and if nothing is found then and only then you can get to work on you. Depression can cause alot of wonderful symptoms. UGHHHHHHHHH. Are you on any medication? Therapy? This is where the work begins. Stay with us and let us know how your doing.
12647080 tn?1432294502 I've seen this in anemia, diabetes, hypo thyroid, etc.. The symptoms you describe could be rooted in depression, as many physical symptoms are present, but this doesn't sound specifically bipolar. Have you been to a doctor or naturopath about this? Even a nutritionist could help, be it bipolar, depression, or something else, a good diet and low toxin intake helps them all.
1386425 tn?1280122758 After not smoking for 6mos, I've felt the need to test myself twice in the last few weeks and the depression it brings on is horrendous! "I dont understand wat makes someone get addicted to anything tho....its mind boggling..." People get addicted to substances because they feel so awful either emotionally or physically or both and they will do anything to feel better. No one *means* to get addicted.
Avatar m tn I literally talk to my self when having a panic attack. I tell my self it's all in my head, and i try to convince my self to relax, and I chant this so to speak. It doesnt solve the problem completely, but it allows me to bring myself back to reality. I know 100% that it really is all in my head, but I can't understand why I react this way.
Avatar n tn A year ago I went to the doctor for symptoms I thought could be hypothyroidism. My first TSH was 5.79 and the doctor prescribed 50mcg Levothyroxine (I’m in my late 30’s and weigh about 135lbs). At a follow-up last Oct., my TSH was 2.something (“in normal range”) but I was still somewhat depressed, so doc added 10mg Lexapro. My anti-TPO also came back normal. In Feb. 2007 my TSH was 0.97 and no changes were made.
Avatar m tn also an obsession with HIV, as you may have seen I have posted on the HIV support forum before and i`m booked for my test on Thursday. I have been worried about my health for a long time but fortunatley I have came to a point were I have turned a corner with my anxiety and truely feel im on the long road to recovery and I now understand that the only way to get rid of the fears is to face them and overcome each obstical.
Avatar n tn This relationship was filled with verbal abuse and constant mood swings from my very unstable EX-girlfriend (no wonder I self-medicaed with pot).. Currently my symptoms include anxiety/depression, irritability, irrational thoughts, and the occasional headache. The ups and downs have really begun to wear on me and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever return to my normal self before the pot and the emotional roller coaster of a relationship.
5143317 tn?1383751420 My symptoms sort of come and go, but there's always an underlying sense of sadness and lack of self worth. I have little to no self esteem, I have a hard time looking in the mirror most days. And I wouldn't say I'm suicidal, however, I do have times when I think I'd be better off dead. My husband thinks it's all in my head and I do it to myself, so he's no help at all. And unfortunately, it doesn't take alot to get me into a full blown breakdown...
Avatar f tn My original diagnoses was major depression. After a few assessments, the diagnoses was changed to mood disorder- not otherwise specified (NOS). The psychiatrist that I was assigned said he didn't want to diagnose me with the most serious condition right off the bat. I spoke with the regular therapist today and she said when I first started seeing her she diagnosed me with adjustment disorder. She told me today that she had changed her diagnoses to anxiety disorder with panic attacks.
Avatar f tn and the self test is here :
Avatar n tn Negative and normal. Two weeks ago I went back to my primary, after the discussion had on this forum, and requested that I be tested for NGU, UTI, and MG. At the time, I was still having some bizarre urethral symptoms which correlated with Urethritis. My left testicle was also tender, and I believed it to be somewhat swollen, and I was still experiencing some discomfort in my joints.
398624 tn?1266273049 Hi! I have to give you a little background before I get to the depression part. I am a 28 yr old female and have been experiencing problems with dizziness for about 9 yrs. It will happen on and off for a couple of months at a time that I will be dizzy, then, in the months in between, I will feel fine. I have gone to several type drs including: family drs., several neurologists, several ENT's, several drs at Duke, internal medicine dr, and several ER drs.
Avatar f tn Long story short, I developed depression symptoms in time and had anxiety attacks. Until I left my husband. Then the attacks stopped and I stopped ocd'ing a lot. Not entirely but a lot. Mind you, he had abused me for 4 years before everything hit me on Christmas Day so it may have been slow in developing.
Avatar n tn I am writing because I recently began suffering from anxiety attacks and perhaps some symptoms of depression, both of which run in my family. I was an avid pot smoker for several years, smoking at least three times a day. I experienced my first anxiety attack while I was high; at first, I thought it was a "bad high," but my second and third attacks told me it was something more.
