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 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 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.

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 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 f tn If your son is ill, the stress from being ill and not knowing why, wondering if you have something wrong or just not being diagnosed and worrying can cause anxiety and depression. I am sure that everyone that has chiari at one point or another has dealt with depression and/or anxiety but I don't think the chiari itself causes it. (Did that make sense?). I don't think it would hurt for him to have an MRI to check for the chiari. Is he concerned about having it?
Avatar n tn There is no scientific reason for anyone diagnosed with depression to be given psychiatric drugs for it as there is no proven link between depression and brain chemistry to date.
Avatar m tn symptoms dont diagnose hiv...only a test can do that. you can test now for a conclusive result.
Avatar n tn I am a 35 year old white female with depression (under control on Celexa 40mg)/stress/high anxiety. I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure (HBP is currently normal with Lisinopril HCTZ 20/25). I wore a Holter monitor wich showed my average heart rate to be104. I have not had a stress test but am in the process of getting an appointment with a cardiologist to have some testing done, I assume.
Avatar m tn I now have been sober for 7 months. However I have the symploms of depression, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, painful joints, no energy and no labido. I had a tyroid test done and it was normal, my testostrone was 2.2 but the normal range is 2.1-8 doees this seem like a low number for a 30 yo?
Avatar f tn I have been a marijuana smoker since before my pregnancy and its been real hard for me to stop but I have been clean for about 20 days now. I suffer from depression and My due date is this Friday 9/19 will this affect me, my child or will they take him away from me? Very concerned!!! I know that I can't take any over the counter meds to clean my system... What should I do?
Avatar m tn 4 weeks 4th gen duo lab test- negative 8 weeks 4th gen duo lab test- negative 11 weeks 4th gen duo lab test- negative and hiv rna pcr- negative 14 weeks 4th gen duo lab test- negative Please tell me how conclusive can I consider these results? I asked now couple of days ago this transsexual in Facebook and she swore on her mother and on God that she does not have any disease.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with GAD and major depression. I cannot take SSRI drugs because I have an adverse reaction. I am on 150 mg of Wellbutrin and building up to 30 mg (for now) of Pamelor. My doc did not want to double the dose of Wellbutrin because I was still not sleeping well. I have had numerous medical tests. Normal MRI's of brain and cervical spine w/contrast, normal blood work, normal thyroid, normal sedemintation rate, normal chest x-ray, normal brain CT scan.
Avatar n tn There are too many benign or harmless things that cause ST depression so I don't want you to worry about this. After the stress test, you will have a better idea what you are dealing with. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I am frustrated to tears about the test results because there's still no resolution to my problems. So, my question is: if the thyroid panel is normal, why am I having symptoms of hypothyroidism? Should my "normal range" be considerably higher than it is? Is there anything else I should be asking my doctor about?
Avatar n tn 10)is there anything I can do such as a walking test, flex test, arm test,etc... to detect Parkinsons' or ALS? 11)last but not least, with a what the nuero called a "perfectly normal nuero exam" does this make either of the two diseases less likely or could either be gradually setting in? I have also been diagnosed with GAD and major depression. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Part of the reason ovarian cancer is not regularly screened for is because there is not a reliable, easy, fairly reasonably priced, and mostly painless test available for it. Let's hope that researchers develop such a test soon and save even more lives. I am thinking of you and hope that you "waste your time" having annual mammograms that always come back negative.
Avatar n tn To give my input into the inital question, I haven't had the experience of thyroid cancer but being hypot. I have fatigue, depression, anxiety and all the rest that comes with it...Im not on anti depressants and don't think I will.... But I can relate to feeling at a loss and not knowing what to do..... There are so many people on here who helps me and I know they will help you... Give this site a chance i promise it will make you feel better!
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with ASI (Adrenal Stress Index - saliva test.
1138758 tn?1374804305 Its such a stressful situation, and depression one too. Wanting something you know you cant have, and the only way to possibly have it is to gamble your life savings for something that may or may not happen, and it seems like we all want to take that risk. A 3 year wait list is a super long time! I thought my 6 month wait to get into my RE was a long time - wow. Did you just get on the list or have you been on there for sometime? Do you have a wait list?
Avatar n tn I have had an MRI which was normal and read by both of the Docs. I also had an EMG test on my left side which was normal. I rarely have headaches and have never had any kind of altered mental state from these. I have no real medical history and all of my vitals are normal. I take bystolic for palpitations, omeprazole of GERD and occasionally Lorazapam for anxiety. My question is that here recently I have started having similar sensations on my right side.
Avatar n tn If a woman has a large bosom, it can really interfere with the test. If a man has a large gut it can also interfere with the test. I have had 5 or 6 nuclear stress test over the past 5 years and about half have been right. (1/2 of 5=?) I had one 3 months ago that showed lack of blood flow to the bottom of my heart, which is a known fact. It didn't show the re-stenosed stent that almost caused me the big one 7 weeks ago. So, I don't have any faith whatsoever in these tests.
Avatar n tn Here's my question, two months ago i started to have symptoms like memory loss, lack of concentration and uneasiness; my life was tottaly great at the time but i am a little unsecure about my intelectual skills. I write for a popular politics blog in my country and i was starting to feel that texts weren't coming out as good as they used to be. Even so, i thought i was just tired, continued doing my daily life offcourse even though i felt unconfortable.
Avatar n tn My father-in-law suffered anxiety w/depression after my brother-in-law committed suicide. After many months, med's started working & things seemed better. 8 months after the death, his wife had an unexpected heart attack & died. Still on his med's from prior tragedy, he was seemingly doing well. Unknown to us, med's ended Oct 2007 & by Dec 2007 anxiety was back. This time symptoms have seemed to progress faster than last time.
Avatar f tn I mean I guess i really don't have a question just looking for emotional support and folks to talk to about it.
