Depression symptoms sleep too much

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms sleep too much

depression

Avatar f tn to be depressed - one of the symptoms is changes in sleep - either sleeping too little or too much, as well as your comment about not wanting to go out of your room - the not wanting to participate in activities (could be because of the severe tiredness, but could also be a symptom of depression) But definitely get checked out by your doctor and make sure they run some blood work, etc., to make sure all your levels are ok - perhaps even request they check your thyroid.
Avatar n tn And there are some other associated symptoms usually seen in depression, such as, loss of interest in activities that used to give pleasure or joy, loss of appetite for food (or too much eating at times), disturbed sleep, feelings of helplessness and some more. Do you feel scared when you meet people, or is it just that you do not feel like meeting them? Do you feel better as the day progresses?
Avatar f tn Wait -- have you been diagnosed with sleep apnea? This is a specific condition, not something that would have just started bothering you because you changed your schedule. Many people find late shift work very difficult on them, and you might be one of them. But if you think you are depressed, a psychologist is where you should start if you think this time you're not able to get out of it yourself.
Avatar m tn I sleep way to much like yesterday I went to bed at 4 pm sleep till 10 pm eat and went back till 5 am. Then got up for work and went back to sleep at work for 45 min. I have bipolar and high blood pressure what can I do before I loss my job for falling a sleep at work.
Avatar n tn If you have gone through difficult times lately - loosing a job, feeling lonely, echonomy, finding the right diet - those are things that could be making you much more emotional too. It could become a depression. I am not able to diagnose someone (and thank goodness for that - I'm not educated for that!) and that is something you, your physician and even a psychologist should do together. To be on the safe side, make sure you have a diagnosis that is right for you.
Avatar n tn Hi all I'm new on the forum, nice to have the possibility to chat with people in the same situation. I'm in week 37 and trubled with the depression. I'm on CELEXA but this doesn't seem to help too much. I'm crying a lot and feel like **** all the day. I started to smoke and this makes things worse. Is the depression going to lift after treatment? I'm scared.
Avatar n tn As withdrawals can feel same as depression, we have to give it time after we stop. Withdrawal symptoms will come on pretty quickly after we stop, depression rather slower. We will know ourselves what is happening, as you and I did. Your suggestion to wonder502 is a good one.
Avatar f tn My appetite has changed, I never feel hungry but I eat so much anyway. I get very anxious too. And I have frequent headaches, stomach problems and sometimes muscle pains. I feel worthless. And I dont really think about dying/committing suicide, but I do sometimes think about what would happen if i did. I'm not very social anymore either, but thats because im shy and because of recent events. Could this be depression? How can I deal with it? Thank you, In advance.
Avatar n tn Basically I feel low most of the time, I dont get much if any enjoymetn, I sleep too much, feel weak and have out 16lbs on in one month (very out of character) I cry all the time but sometimes I cry and then realise I actually feel quite numb a lot of the time. occcasionally I get so upset i think what is the point. after much persuasion i plucked up the courage to vist a doctor but i couldnt seem to explain myself very well and couldnt really explain because i felt too embarresed and stupid.
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 Even the simple act of taking a shower will seem like too large a task to deal with. So at least that is my experience with depression. It really is much like living hell on earth. On the other hand, there are (like I said) less severe forms of depression. Mine happens to be very severe and refractory. People like me often don't make it and I am well aware that my condition is not just going to go away.
Avatar f tn You are having classic symptoms of both depression and anxiety disorders. You are not unique as myself and others here can definitely relate to the stress, hopelessness, pain and frustration. You mentioned that you were seeking counseling. Is this with a psych specialist? Have you been given a formal diagnosis? There is help available through therapy and/or medication. You don't have to, nor were you meant to live this way.
1458597 tn?1286376717 I like to feel that I have an amazing memory but when I am in a depression I can not remember much. How I found out I got depression is a long story, but its not like cutting your hand open and seeing bloody or coming out with a rash on your face... depression is in your head and unless you are totally aware of many of us simply have no idea - I did not even know myself that I had depression, I thought that everyone felt like me!
Avatar f tn That's important, because it's very effective in dealing with problems - everyday problems, depression, anxiety, sleep problems, eating problems, everything. It can help you out and just as importantly, keep you happy when you're through this and feeling happy again (which WILL happen, I can just about guarantee). Just ask whichever therapist whether they know CBT (they almost certainly will, it's quite common) and try them out.
Avatar f tn Hep c tx can lead to depression...Symptoms include feelings of sadness and hoplessness, loss of interest in once pleasurable activities, changes in weight, sleep, or appearance. Sorry to hear you're going thru this. Talk to a medical professional about it. Hoping you find a good SSRI; Good luck with it all. Cory.
Avatar m tn Done correctly, there is usually not too much of a problem.. The doctor can help when you are ready. I take Lexapro and actually quit taking it while on hydrocodone. I never had a problem. Probably because I was on the pills. Not sure I would do that now. also you can phrase it anyway you want...but addicts come in all shapes and sizes. I am a 60 year old mom and only got my pills from my doctor. Still an addict!
200220 tn?1361955154 Your other issues might be related to depression, cramps, stress, in other wards, once your depression, cramps, stress are treated, the others may be alleviated. There is a lot more to all this, but as you can see I have already but too much here as it is. You can google graves disease and rai (you must join) to get more info plus meet and get support from great people. Regardless, Good luck!
Avatar f tn I really hope it does too. Having a rough time right now. Also I've been taking a hp omega for about 1 1/2 years now , do not get the brain zaps and never have. I just hope everything soon kicks in, it's been 17 days now , and really do have my moments, thought the prozac would help, but I'm not sure. I am very senative to meds , so this is not what I expected to go thru twice in 1 year. Just one day at a time I guess. Thank you for your concern, it really helps.
Avatar f tn A lot of times I cannot make since of it and cannot handle it. It’s too much for me to handle at one time so I pile it up. This has been and has caused a real problem for me. I do not have someone that can be of help with this.
Avatar f tn That I'm sleepy if I sleep too long once and wake up, and it's just a vicious cycle between too much sleep and grogginess. If it were that I wouldn't be here. My body HAS to sleep if it's tired. It HAS to lay down and rest. Once I'm asleep, I could sleep through a hurricane. My boyfriend's tried to wake me up many times, only to be annoyedly grunted and pushed away. I don't even remember any of this when I wake up. I'll even talk to him without any idea that I'm doing it.
Avatar n tn i feel sooooo much better, im certain many of my problems were because i had not slept well in a long time. even tho my sleep is now medicated, my days are much better.my feelings are balanced and healthy. if your not sleeping well id like to sujjest you get something that will MAKE you sleep, and take it for at least 10 nights in a row. i hope it helps. sleep deprivation has very similar symptoms as depression and anxiety.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was on Paxil for about a year and hated the side effects from it. I gained 40 lbs and would sleep 18 hours a day. It did take away my depression but it wasn't worth the side effects i had. I decided to whean off it and did it too fast. I ended up in the hospital from withdrawl syndrome but all the doctor could do was tell me to whean slower. I was miserable and decided i couldn't do it. I switched to other meds until I found one that worked for me... Celexa.
Avatar n tn Basically, I'm not sure how much anxiety is too much and if I should seek help to control it or not. Also, what are the physical symptoms that can arise when someone is experiencing too much anxiety/stress? I usually feel like I have no energy whatsoever, even after getting a good nights sleep. Also, a few nights ago I experienced piercing chest pains for about an hour. I'm not sure what that was due to...could it have been from too much anxiety/stress?
Avatar n tn I too would suggest a sleep study for sleep apnea. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I feel like this Ultram has a bit of speed in it and I hate that feeling if I didnt I would be a coke addict not a downer fiend. Does this feeling go away its too much like ritalin which I stopped taking cause I absolutly hate this feeling, I miss my percs and vics already.
Avatar f tn How d o know if I am getting these side-effects from too much Buproprion or am I suffering withdrawl symptoms from lack of the original Buproprion.
