Avatar n tn It is possible that you could have some type of recurrent abnormal heart rhythm as a primary event but the palpitation could just as easily be due to sleep apnea. Such sleep disturbances can also have a significant effect on one's emotional state, leading to anxiety, panic attacks, depression, confusion and even hallucinations.
Avatar n tn You describe symptoms that are sometimes associated with Restless Leg Syndrome and/or Periodic Limb Movement Disorder and also sleep apnea. Both of these could be assessed during a sleep study, as well as your oxygen levels, heart beat, and stages of sleep your brain achieves.

Avatar n tn I have been reading the archives about depression and while some of the symptoms of depression are like mine, I also have just the opposite. I have withdrawn from my family and friends and society and I have also lost interest in activities which used to give me pleasure. I don't like loud noise and I am quick to anger. But, where as most people lose their appetites and have problems sleeping, mine are just the opposite.

Avatar m tn I have been having issues now for about a year and a half and gone undiagnosed with anything other than a gait disorder and a neuroimmune disorder. They have done MRI's of brain, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar everything was clear with exception to a torn disc and degenerative disc disease. They have done sleep studies and only found mild sleep apnea. They did an EEG which was normal. They have not done a lp.
Avatar n tn About 4 years ago I started getting symptoms of anxiety and loss of sleep. I had regrets about the past and a career choice I made and I kept regretting and thinking I made a wrong decision. This affected my self esteem and I had problems taking up jobs.

Avatar m tn A complete diagnostic evaluation is conducted so as to find out the cause of depression. Many factors like family history, genetic disorder, symptoms, severity, any history of treatment etc. once diagnosed, the patient of depression can be treated with a number of ways. Medication and psychotherapy are the common ones. Antidepressants help the patients by acting and balancing the neurotransmitters in the brain. They can be taken by consulting a doctor.
3082244 tn?1347999985 Do you just have anxiety disorder but no panic disorder? The doctor must diagnose and treat. I can only tell you what I take that works for me. Propanolol controls heart beat from racing I think and klonopin is a milder form of something like valium and I believe less addictive. But the doctor must prescribe. This is what I take for your type problem.
Avatar n tn Another possibility is sleep disturbances (like sleep apnea, imbalance of rapid eye and non rapid eye movement sleep etc.). You may sleep your customary 7-8 hours and yet feel fatigued. You need sleep studies to rule this out. Other possibilities are chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, low Vit B12, low iron, low calcium, sodium and potassium. Hyperthyroidism too causes increased sweating and tiredness. Postviral fatigue syndrome is another possibility.

Avatar n tn Please consider the possibility of an independent depressive disorder. In depression, the sleep architecture, in terms of the REM and NREM phases, is disturbed, many times manifested by jerks. It seems you had problems sleeping. This is an integral part of depression. Please observe for more symptoms of depression, like sadness of mood for most part of the day, feeling tired easily, loss of appetite for food, not feeling like going out much, not socializing much, etc. Please keep me posted.
Avatar n tn I'm a 29 year old male and have been dealing with depression for a number of years but only recently have I felt that I need help. Some of my symptoms are as follows: Constant foggy head. I'm forgetfull and my thoughts aren't sharp. Heavy, thick feeling in head, almost pressure-like. I'm always disconnecting myself from reality by daydreaming and literally playing out different situations in my head with conversations and everything.
427698 tn?1207273703 My final step was seeking the help of a psychiatrist who told me in fact based on my symptoms and sleep studies I do in fact have a sleeping disorder called Narcolepsy and in no terms did he believe I was clinically depressed or bi-polar. Thankfully to a psychiatrist I am recieving the proper treatment and am not on any depression meds. I must add that depression is a first line of defense for many disorders because it is true that mood disturbances can create many issues even insomnia.

1305767 tn?1361192676 I too used to have severe depression year round. My depression was tied to a sleep disorder. Getting light treatment completely took away my depression. It took about a month to work, but once it did it was terrific. If I stopped doing the light treatment, 4 days later, the depression would come back. I used just regular fluorescent long tubed light bulbs which I sat about a foot away from. I used a whole stack of them tiered, but you probably don't need to go that far.
