Avatar n tn Those who required further test after 3rd month will know themselves when they go for thier test. Thirdly, you are absolutely rite about ..."

Avatar f tn When you see the doctor Thursday, as a start you need to re-test for TSI, TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin. If you can get those done and get results before seeing the PA, we will be glad to help interpret results and advise further. Just post test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report.
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 m tn Thats the safest way to take test these meds on yourself before deciding if it will help or not. If you feel they are making you worse or if others say your acting odd... or you start having strange/intrusive thoughts... get back to the dr. immediatly and work with him/her to figure out what to do next. IF your doctor tries to up your dose and you dont feel comfortable with that,, go to anouther doctor asap because it could make a huge difference.
Avatar f tn I knew I needed help. I go to sleep and wake up at the same time, got help with pain so I could fall asleep. I have lost weight and exercise which helps me. I sought out a Doctor for the ddepression. I also got a counselor who specializes in Chronic Illness. We do hypnosis which has helped. I can put myself to sleep or de stress when needed. I also have someone to talk things through with. Depression does not like to be treated. It is inertia.
Avatar f tn I know it's depressing, it is for all of us but you can only do so much at this point. There are tests you can test that tell you what you are best suited for, and you can get this thru a therapist. Maybe this would help you determine what you would like to do, but it's a tough time to look for a job. If you feel this is all becoming over-whelming for you, then see a psychiatrist and the two of you determine what route of treatment is best for you.
Avatar f tn I am guessing that with the holidays around the corner that isn't helping either. Everyone tells us to be happy and singing yet it may be the last thing you want to do...and that makes you feel even worse. Trust me when I say that there are a lot of people on the board with big hearts that are willing to help out when they can. With that said, Can you give a general state and city you might live in or be close to? (DO not give us any street address info..

Avatar n tn I finally went to the doctor last Friday-she thinks its depression but waiting on the thyroid test results before prescribing anti-depressants. She gave me 6 ambians-wow it felt great to get 6 hours of sleep in a row! Anyway she thinks I am depressed because I moved (lived in the house for 12 yrs)- I think its because I quit smoking. Has anyone else ever gotten severe depression from quitting smoking?
Avatar f tn How did other first time mom's cope with depression during pregnancy..... I'm 20 weeks 2 days and I've honestly been excited very little amount of times throughout my entire pregnancy..... i wasn't happy when i found out and it's rare when i do get excited about everything much less smile about everything. ....... i was never supposed to be able to have children. So it was a great suprise for my significant other and i when a test came back positive.......
Avatar f tn You just need to initiate the process of getting professional help. Depression is a real can't help the way you feel. It isn't a character flaw, or something you can control, which again is why it requires professional help to get to a manageable place. Cutting is a way of dealing with feelings and emotions you are bottling up...and a way to reduce anxiety. Like I already said...
Avatar f tn Iam with mariya on this get a DNA test done and show them and then be done with it..
Avatar f tn doc fri .I think the first test i want is that genetic test that lets you know if treatment will help me or not, then go from there ! port-I'm 1b, I do wish I could talk to my friends and most my family,I just don't want the sympthy or the isolation or judjment of it all you know.. Janv-back side of life ,I like your outlook !
Avatar n tn Hi: I got a positive pregnancy test..but, have been slowly going into a depression??? Has anybody had this. I am an infertility patient who recently had IVF and am currently on progestrone injections.
8647560 tn?1415202070 After I hit second trimester it all went away and I'm such a happier and chip per person then I was at the beginning. Maybe talk to your doctor. And she can help. I really hope you feel better. Depression is no fun. I think once you feel baby you will be much happier.
Avatar m tn Is being severely agitated and irritable having great difficulty concentrating a sign of depression. Also racing thoughts when I awake and disturbing dreams. Also severe loss of energy. I this depression? my drs say that I am anxiety ridden.
Avatar f tn that is literally exactly how i feel. how do you try to overcome this?
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 f tn I did not benefit from the treatment of the ECT's because I was not convulsing. The patient has to convulse to receive the benefit of help with depression. Since I had only convulsed three or four times, I walked away with all of the very bad side effects but without any of the benefits. My point in bringing this up initally is that I believe that I should have been told right away the first time I did not convulse and definately the second time.

393685 tn?1425816122 What a great post! I have sevral thoughts, so this gives me a reason to blather on for pages! When I first developed thyroid problems, I had some trouble with mild depression. The doctor I was seeing at that time gave me a sample pack of anti'depressants, and told me if I liked them he would write me a scrip. After I went home and read about all the side affects, I decided I could live with a little mopyness, and told him I wasn't interested in anti-depressants.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Depression about 15 years ago, I have been on numerous different meds, such as prozac, effexor, paxil, celexa, and currently on cipralex. My question is will I ever be able to get off of the meds, or will this be a lifetime thing. The reason for the change in meds is that they work at first, then they seem to not work so the dose is increased then after a while we have to switch. My mother has depression, and I was diagnosed before her.
Avatar f tn I am always like no it isn't it can't be. I've been looking up teenage depression and takeing the self test. What can I do to get help? Any adivce? Do I need to slip a note to my school conselar about this? Want do I need todo? I like only 12 I just can't decide anymore. Help me ASAP? Sorry for mis-spelling things.
Avatar m tn Yes, the depression is a normal part of withdrawels, especially where you are at with them. But..... if you find the depression is not lifting in a week or 2 and feel it's getting worse, then you may want to see a doctor about it. The damage we have done to ourselves can/ does alter your brains chemistry and you may find the depression lasting to long or getting to severe. I was clean for 2 months but ended up so depressed, I relapsed. Don't let this happen to you.
Avatar f tn anyone so depressed that they think of hurting themselves or someone else. Can med help help, perhaps offer a link of known help that these people can search out? The fact that they found medhelp and tried finding help here is a start at least they want help, but if they feel that they can't find help even here I am so afraid of what the outcome will be for them.
Avatar f tn I may have been through some things in my life that have made me depressed at some moments but i am not depressed and it is not depression causing this. I dread the mornings now, im scared and worried for myself...and i need some help. every now and then i get sharp pains that shoot across my sides..almost where my lungs are. I dont know if it is connected to the stomach problem or not. the only test my doctor has done on me is a kidney check and found nothing wrong..
