Depression test form

Common Questions and Answers about Depression test form


Avatar n tn Be optimistic, your result should be negative. Did you have negative results during tx? My doctor told me that if you have negative at 12 weekes you probably are one of the SVR, I was negative at 12 and 24 month but trubled with depression and anxiety.No other important side effects.For me "depression" sounds morescary that hep C. I know many people living a normal life with hep C although they didn't do any treatment. The treatment improve our chance to survive, I hope.
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 (It's a GRADUAL process at first) We resist a lot of ideas.....we have to test the waters ourselves. We have to try and fail....and then try something again. Hopefully and eventually.....we learn enough from our trial and errors, our mistakes, to finally make it to FREEDOM off addictive meds. You are concerned about being honest with your dr because in order for him to "assist you" with a taper....
Avatar n tn I have been treated for depression aprox. 20 years. Different doctors, different meds. Now the pending diagnosis may be "uni-polar" depression. A milder form of bi-polar. I have several types of depression steming from childhood trauma to situational. I'm 50 years old and have never been a drug, alcohol, or chemical abuser. I have taken prescription anti-depressants w/o incidence for 15 years and am seeing a lcsw and psychiarist. Here's the problem. NOTHING WORKS.
Avatar n tn A number of things can cause this, besides it being a form of depression. For example, thyroid function is sometimes implicated, not that I'm saying it is likely. I would agree that it is a good idea to rule out other possible causes before muddying the waters by taking antidepressants. If you are otherwise fit and physically healthy, then perhaps antidepressants or a mood stabilising agent are at least worth considering.
Avatar n tn hahaha Now I'm getting punchy reading all posts about depression,,,,And I have this mental picture in my mind,,,kinda like a cartoon,,,ya know....Everyone out there in cyberland is sitting in front of computers with very thin hair,,boney and covered in riba rash,,,And asking..."But how positive can a person be" LOL Awwww Lou,,,Like the dress and accessories,,,ever so nice!! You are ready!! Now,,,Now,,,My pretty one,,,Step right up...haha Lou,,,You are priceless and I love you!!!
Avatar n tn I did OK with that until day 6, with return of anxious feelings and extreme discomfort in neck and shoulders. A cardiac stress test was negative for problems. I went back to previous dosing. I am now trying to dose down once more, with basically taking a "sliver" - 1/2 of a 1/2 (.125mg) during the day and .25mg at night. I do tend to feel a little jittery at times and continue to have neck and shoulder pain, particularly in the evenings.
Avatar f tn Don't think the positive test was Igenix. It was a Western Blot at a family practice so most likely it was LabCorp, but I'm not sure. The doctor was surprised as no one suspects I have Lyme as I look pretty robust -- a little plump I guess. But she said You have acute lyme disease. I just cried -- as I knew it all along and it was a relief almost to know why I feel this way. I will post my other symptoms in a separate note to you.
Avatar f tn I have severe depression and have been on ads for 20 years. I found out that my eye pressures are high which I read online can be aggravated by antidepressants. Is this true? I cant imagine making it without my antidepressant but I dont want to hurt my eyes either.
Avatar f tn Hi. Try this test. I agree with Maddie44. Depression is quite complex and different for each individual. Everyone gets 'depressed' at times and frequently for good reasons. If depression, or whatever you are experiencing is interfering with your life then I suggest you ask your doctor for a referral to a psychiatrist of psychologist to talk over the issues you are concerned about.
Avatar m tn I am going through a divorce right now and my job can be pretty high pressure, so I thought it be depression or anxiety. Also, about 4 months ago, I had an unprotected oral sexual encounter - I was freaking out and thought I had caught HIV. The test results were negative and every expert on this forum told me I'm fine as you can't get HIV through receiving oral sex.
476654 tn?1207856399 I know it helps with knee pain in tablet form and have read that it does help with depression. I haven't had it as I'm OK on my meds for now. One thing I would say is that if you are switching meds for any reason other than mental health then you are making a mistake. Weight gain is not the result of a med. It is the result of a depressive lifestyle where we move little and eat too much and the wrong thing, always. We don't exercise. But the med does not add weight, we do.
Avatar m tn But i don't know about depression. I had a test of B12 in my blood perhaps there is a deficiency in it it says 512 i.e. lower normal, if you eat well you may not need it, yet i am sure the shots did a great good for my father. I believe that as far as depression it's the B6 which counts but in my country there is no urine test for it because you can discharge it in urine, you must have this test in your country.
Avatar n tn ( 4 years ago, Id got myself back on my feet after a few years of serious depression, I started my own business and new additions to our family, which focussed my life and everything was going well for awhile, I had painful BM 's and diarrhoea which continued with out let up, as a stereotypical man after 6months I went to my GP, and as my family has a history of gastro-problems my grandma had GERD and diverticulitis My mother had gall stones and pancreatitus and my sister is very porrly with sev
12647080 tn?1432294502 I would think about the possibilty that the depression was already there bu perhaps you have a bad day at the gym or want to give up early and quit during an exercise. This may seem like the exercise caused the depression but usually in reality the depression was already there.

Avatar n tn student in neuorpsychology and I take 75 mg of Zoloft and see a therapist once a week to deal with frightening thoughts of hurting children in my life and depression. Originaly, it was thought that the depression was secondary to the obsessions but now my obsessions are undercontrol (They are not in control of my life anymore) and I'm still depressed. I will go three days to a week of feeling alright and then I will be in a full depression again for another couple of days.
Avatar m tn Hello, thank you for reading my post/question, lately i been trying to find out the reason about my depression it usually comes out of no where, i have a good family but i dont know why i am depressed, compare to my friends they have a controlling family and they can smile but i cant do that, recently i figured out something about myself, the more time i spend with people the more depressed i get because i cant be funny like people i am not tall and handsome like them,(i want to isolate myself f
Avatar f tn I am currently taking Wellbutrin (now for about 3 months) is not relieving my depression symptoms in the least. Talked to my doctor (psychiatrist) this afternoon and explained the situation to him. My symptoms read from the pages of a textbook....feeling depressed, feeling restless, difficulty concentrating, crying jags, unfounded feelings of worthlessness, feelings of sadness, loss of interest in normal daily things and things I used to enjoy, forgetfullness, easy mood changes etc.
Avatar m tn There seems to be so much conflicting data that it's INCREDIBLY overwhelming to try to understand what good nutrition is. That being said, I suffer from anxiety/depression. Since I've taken a healthier route of living, I've noticed a major decrease in my severe symptoms. The chronic condition is still there, though. I'm curious to know about niacin. I was watching a video on nutrition and they mention niacin as being good for depression and anxiety.
407790 tn?1397764626 ) He basically told me to go back to my shrink. But too much suspicious stuff is going on for me to think this is related to my depression. It seems like something isn't right with my immune system. For those of you with CFS, is there another type of doctor I should see? (beyond a rheumatologist and an infectious disease specialist.
Avatar f tn My baby daddy started ignoring me and blocking my calls once I told him the test came out positive and the last thing I heard is 'I want a blood test when that thing comes out' so he is getting his test, but that's the only time he will ever hear from me.
1563571 tn?1295125039 Each of these metals accumulates in the brain, and is a powerful activator of brain microglia and excitotoxicity the very mechanism seen with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and suicide risk. In cases of depression and suicide, the microglia in the brain become highly activated, while the number of astrocytes specialized cells that support the provision of nutrients to nervous tissues is reduced.
Avatar n tn Your derm will not put you back on Accutane because you are being treated for depression. There is a correlation between Accutane and worsening of depression. Are you a male or female (I am assuming male but I just wanted to be sure)? I would tell you to stop using Ivory soap. It sounds like your skin is drying out due to the soap and medication. Also, you should get on a facial cleaning regimen of cleanser, toner, and *moisturizer* since your skin is dry.
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 n tn I have an autoimmune disease with hashimotos/hypothyroid discovered only after a complete and total blood/vitamin/mineral test. Don't feel down find another doctor who is willing to do the research, you know your body and what is not normal.
Avatar n tn I had felt some form of mild depression for yrs before tx. Before knowing of HCV. I'm sure that the daily aches and sciatic pain for yrs contributed to that fact. It is known that chronic pain causes depression. For yrs, theories in the psychiatric community seem to acknowledged that they can't pinpoint if the chemical changes in the brain come first that lead to depression or the depression first and then the chemical change that keeps the depression going.
Avatar f tn I have anxiety issues (fluttering in upper stomach, pain in arms and tingling in hands), but I am NOT depressed. After normal stress test and echo and heart monitor testing, my doctor gave me (about a year ago) a one-time prescription for lorazapam but told me it was addictive and to take it only as needed. Soooooooo ...... I try not to take them, but when I do, I only take one-half of the .5mg tablet. I still have most of them left, because I just try to fight my way through the symptoms.
Avatar n tn Amy- I'm sorry for your loss. I have read that the hormonal changes that you go through after a miscarriage are essentially the same that women face after giving birth. That is, what you are probably experiencing is some form of a "post-partum" depression. I would definately talk to your obgyn and let them know. If they cannot recommend someone to talk to, perhaps your primary physician can.
