Depression symptoms versus other disease

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms versus other disease


Avatar n tn Dear friend Don't ignore the symptoms of depression, talk to your doctor for an depression assessment. I was feeling well for the 6 month and I was ignoring the depression until one day I had to go to the hospital with suicidal thoughts and so depressed that I couldn't control myself. They put me on CELEXA and now I can say I function but still have very bad days. I cry a lot and feel empty and hopeless.They even put me on psychotherapy for severe depression.
220090 tn?1379170787 you have a good chance of killing it, but you will hit many other things along the way. A protease inhibitor is designed to hit the virus directly and miss everything else. It rarely achieves that goal, so side effects appear because it has impact on other cells within our bodies. That is what caused the first PI, BILN, to be withdrawn. Because the PI hits the virus directly, it quickly lowers the viral load by killing everything not resistant to it.
Avatar f tn It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can lymes disease cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again. I just need to know if lymes disease can cause all of these symptoms, and constantly, 24/7 I have these symptoms. like I said, I was diagnosed with anxiety but I do not believe that anxiety can cause all of the agony.
190559 tn?1280615967 I was on methimazole for 14 months for treatment of Graves Disease. Since I also have Graves Eye Disease, I chose total thyroidectomy over RAI, as my endo advised there was at least anecdotal evidence that RAI can make the GED worse. As far as taking the methimazole, it certainly treated my thyroid symptoms adequately. However, I found that after I no longer had to take it, I felt better in a lot of other ways, including lessened anxiety.
280418 tn?1306329510 I didn't see a work up for a couple other things that can cause peripheral neuropathy and brain lesions. The main one is Lyme Disease and other neurotropic infections, that is infections that have a prediliction for the nervous system. That is something I would ask your neurologist to do, making sure that you have had a Western blot done at a respected lab for Lyme. The added element of chills, makes me wonder again about Lyme. It is not a typical feature of MS.
912352 tn?1242888802 Now, at 23, I have been on over 5 medications to help my anxiety/depression symptoms. I've tried counceling for years. I tried exercise...medication. You name it..I've done it (well I haven't tried any natural remidies). But anyway...I am wondering if I am going to have to live with this for the rest of my life? Right now I am taking paxil, kolonopin, effexor, and a mood stabalizer. I can't deal with taking all these medications. I just want to be normal...
Avatar n tn I know that changes in ST-T interval especially in it's depression can be caused by both coronary artery disease and they can be a result of leaky valves.According to "Hurst's THE HEART" those diffirences can be ruled out by the ECG leads .In morphology of ST segment the depression indicates ischemia ,elevation -an infraction.
147426 tn?1317269232 They might be that dreaded patient who is healthy, but convinced his symptoms indicate a serious disease. Or, they might be looking for a doctor to given them the specific diagnosis they are looking for. Another fear is that they want to sue a previous doctor and they come to get another opinion to “nail” the previous doctor. Some doctors believe that patients move from doctor to doctor to seek drugs for an addiction.
Avatar m tn So, two questions. 1.) Can these bands be indicative of any other disease? 2.) Do Lyme symptoms remit for long periods of time and relapse (such as MS)? 3.) How do you get the insurance company to pay for treatment when they do not consider either test to be CDC approved? I am paying a lot out of pocket for the treatment and I will be broke very soon at this rate! Thanks!
1149087 tn?1415320149 sorry to be whingeing, i know how much everyone here has to deal with and ms-wise i really can't complain about too much yet, i'm having a second flare with many different- but still really light symptoms- if it wasn't for the depression i would be fully able to work. but of course lighter symptoms still terrfiy me because of what they signify.
Avatar m tn If you don't mind me asking, what kind of symptoms did you have and what type of antibiotics, or other treatment, did you take, and for how long?
Avatar n tn This goes exactly in line with my belief that HCV is really a systemic disease, affecting the brain, CNS, and other organs directly, rather than just a liver disease. Many doctors think our symptoms are due to ongoing liver damage, and correlate to degree of liver dysfunction. This article directly contradicts this belief, and shows NO correlation of sx to liver problems or damage. In otherwords this virus does a lot more than infect the blood and liver.
Avatar f tn Oh goodness! You most certainly have the symptoms! I hope you get some relief soon! As for myself, months and months ago, I had blood work done because I was soooo exhausted! All that came back abnormal was my calcium level, 11.2. Since then, my mother in law was diagnosed and had surgery for hyperparathyroidism. I did some more research and found that I was having alot of the symptoms of the "disease"....extreme fatigue, muscle aches, depression, panic attacks, etc.
Avatar m tn (2) If your symptoms are present on one side of the body versus the other or in just one limb, this could include a stroke or the condition multiple sclerosis. These would best be excluded by an MRI which sounds like has already happened. (3) If symptoms migrate (move from one place to the other) and are intermittent, causes might include seizures, migraine disorder or metabolic problems such as low calcium.
739070 tn?1338607002 Ate something healthy, went to another kinda support group, went grocery shopping, treated myself to a coffee milk shake, and got on the forum. I feel better. Momentum versus inertia (depression). Bottom line I have to move forward. I recall a time when I was in a State Mental Hospital and all I was allowed to do was sit in a chair in the hall day in and day out. I learned then either I had to take control of my life or other people would have control.
Avatar n tn I guess I am still wondering, other than Lyme Disease, if you have any ideas what my symptoms could be pointing at, other than the RLS/anxiety part that you just talked about, mainly: burning/tingling sensation in ankle/lower leg and into foot, mainly in both sides, but sometimes only in left burning/tingling sensation in forearms of both arms episodes of burning in joints of legs and arms some muscle twitches when resting (mostly in bed at night) sorry for being so repetitive.
Avatar n tn It makes the anxiety bareable, but doesn't do much for my depression. However, there has always been one thing that has relieved all my symptoms; pain medications. First I would like to say something that Im sure everyone knows; these medicines are very addictive and should not be abused. Unfortunately, they are the only things that work for me. The make me completely calm and relaxed, and not wozy and out of it like benzos do.
Avatar n tn The last urologist suggested that I may have the early signs of a neurological disorder. My symptoms are moderate erectile dysfunction and constipation, fatigue, depression, decreased flexibility, poor balance, dizziness, and mild headaches. I exercise daily, take a daily vitamin, and have a well balanced diet. Does this ring any bells for anyone? Please let me know. I'm very concerned and losing hope.
401095 tn?1351395370 Addiction Is a Brain Disease An interview with Dr. Alan Leshner, director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse. One of America's foremost experts on drug abuse discusses some of the latest knowledge about use, addiction, and treatment. Addictive drugs change the brain in fundamental ways, he says, producing compulsive, uncontrollable drug seeking and use. Leshner was interviewed by Contributing Editor Jerry Stilkind.
147426 tn?1317269232 Went to a John Hopkins graduate and neuro-opthalmologist who keep insisting it is just daily classical and ocular-migraines and depression. I do not disagree that I have that. But, I kept telling them about all the other weird symptoms and they will not believe me...even with the tremors, falling, temporary foot-dragging and temporary infrequent paralysis, weakness, dropping things, palinopsia, being accused of being drunk (when I do not drink), etc.
897578 tn?1241724871 I was not only suffering from practically everything associated with Hashimoto's but also many symptoms of Grave's disease. I was just diagnosed this year with Grave's and have been referred to have an RI. I suffer horribly from not being able to lose weight and extreme fatigue and then I will be hyper for a few months and even lost over 40 pounds over a year ago. Then it struck again and I gained it all back. I lost an entire semester of school to Hashimoto's and so I went on the attack.
Avatar f tn The message boards will finally clear out and we will all be able to tell who actually has Lyme disease who has similar symptoms but is suffering from some other disease entirely. We will finally be able to filter out what really works and what does not work! I am just so tired of everyone with some mysterious joint pain lumping their two-cents in with Lyme disease! What if it isn't?
Avatar n tn o Allergy symptoms o Depression, fatigue and anxiety o Endometriosis o Fibrocystic breasts o Hair loss and facial hair growth o Headaches, dizziness and foggy thinking o Low sex drive o Osteoporosis o PMS o Urinary tract infections and incontinence o Uterine fibroids o Weight gain, water retention and bloating o Wrinkly skin Symptoms of hormone imbalance are caused primarily by the incorrect relationship between progesterone and estrogen levels in the body.
Avatar n tn No fatigue at all. I've heard other people say that they had little or no symptoms before being diagnosed, only to find out that they had advanced liver disease. Go figure.
Avatar dr m tn Sleep apnea is a very common condition that if left untreated, can cause anything from depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, heart attack or stroke. It’s estimated that up to 1/4 of all men and 1/10 of all women may have at least some degree of sleep apnea. The frightening statistic is that about 90% of women with sleep apnea are not diagnosed. Instead they are being treated for the complications of untreated sleep apnea, rather than the cause itself.
Avatar n tn Over the 4 years i had it i constantly got bloated tummy and loads of other preg symptoms and after a few neg preg tests over the years just came to terms with those symptoms cos thought it was best type of contraceptive and worth the symptoms if it was guna stop me having another baby (have 1 other). Apparently not! Just hoping now that the baby (and my womb) are healthy.
14471348 tn?1434691192 Eventually, the hyper-excitement and mania cannot be sustained, glutamate levels plummet and depression sets in. Other NT like lower serotonin and higher dopamine can cause depression and anxiety, respectively. So again a vlcd can help keep those NTs in better balance. (2) Ketones are produced when the body burns fat for energy. The best source by far is Coconut Oil, because it does not get stored as fat, but rather used for energy after it gets processed by the liver (fast).
Avatar m tn I function fine during the day and go to work, and exercise every evening at the gym, but then when the day is over I just want to come home and be left alone. Sometimes I pause and wonder if it is depression and other times I realize I am just worn out and have no more energy to give.
Avatar m tn Many subjects are addressed including 1)duration of treatment 2)marijuana and liver disease 3)persistance of virus after treatment. It's at so you must be registered to view. Registration is free and well worth the time.
Avatar n tn You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax. Make sure you take in salt, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Take several breaks to drink sips (not gulps) of fluid as you jog around. Wear a hat to protect from the heat of the sun, and keep your head cool.
