Avatar m tn But time and time again, whenever I ever have occasional bouts of depression...and even severe depression. Primrose Oil has worked like a godsend. I even told my sister to try it , and she couldn't believe it either. Whenever i'm very irritable , angry , depressed , anxious.. I take a 1000 MG's of Primrose Oil a day...and ALL OF THAT goes away. I feel soooo calm and relaxed everyday after. It only takes a day or 2 to start working. and by the 3rd day, you'll definately notice it.
458384 tn?1295724256 Montgomery-├ůsberg Depression Rating Scale It is a questionnaire used by specialists in clinical psychology and in the psychiatry and aims to check out according to the DSM-IV... (I believe?) The reliability is maybe something others in here has insight in too?
Avatar f tn Depression just is, for those of us who suffer from it. It really has no rhyme or reason to it, as you can take many people and expose them to the same situation and only depressed people will react to it with depression. It is an illness, something wrong in our thinking with no known biological cause at this point in time.
Avatar m tn I'm sure I tell him some stuff that has happened lately and how I am feeling and then what? Like how does he test me for depression? I then assume if he thinks its depression I go talk to somebody... my question here is will this cost me? I am barely working right now due to my "depression" I suppose as well as my job closed down and not many jobs in my area as of now.... This leads me to one and my last question or concern.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar f tn including IBS/ Diverticulitis, Extreme Fatigue, Anxiety, chronic back pain, chronic foot pain, migraines, thinning hair, major weight gain (non responsive to diet/exercise) -- all of this was preceeded by a sudden bout with clinical depression (about 3 years ago) and weight loss of 25 pounds... what do you do when your doctor keeps telling you you are in great health.
Avatar n tn I was dismissed and followed up with my PCP. He wondered about anxiety, but I tested negative for it on his questionnaire. I have literally had numbness in my face everyday since. The tingling in the extremities comes and goes. Can be right hand, left hand, either foot or all 4. At my physical last week, my thyroid numbers were still low, so he changed my meds and increased me to 175 mcg.
Avatar f tn Since there is no medical test for ASD, I would assume that the questionaire is to see if your son might also have ASD. While ASD is normally noticed earlier in life, it is important to know if that is true so that the appropriate intervention can happen. I don't know what his teachers have been noticing, but some typical ADHD co-disorders like anxiety and depression can also seem autism-like. I would definitely ask his ADHD doctor what the accambac (?
1926529 tn?1323083015 Each of the personality dimensions below may increase or decrease the chance of non-melancholic depression. However, it is important to remember that non-melancholic depression usually results from an interaction between stressful events and personality, not personality alone, and that there are other factors involved. Therefore a high score on any of the scales below does NOT mean that depression is inevitable.
16615961 tn?1454423687 Thyroid dysfunctions in RA patients are most often of autoimmune nature (Hashimoto's) Please consider sending more details regarding your medical history,like diagnosis, test results, treatment, meds, current symptoms, etc , so I can give you more specific information.

Avatar f tn My symptoms don't match up that well, and once I saw that the antibody marker was for a bakers yeast, I did some research on Candida Overgrowth, and here's what I came up with... spit test- positive. Questionnaire- DEFINITELY positive. And after excluding yeast and sugar from my diet, I've tried reintroducing it, to painful results.

Avatar f tn have you had your iron levels checked through blood test? anaemia can cause extreme tiredness aswell as many other things like stress, anxiety, mentrual cycle, virus's. Are you any medication or any birth control? are you suffering from depression?
Avatar n tn I also have hard time breathing when I am almost failing asleep and rushing thought. Did some blood test, everything is clear. Doc's said that I am going through Stress, Anxiety and Depression. What he said is true but I got over it like last week ago and try to think positively. What should i do next? I don't know whats going on with my mind and body, I remember last few week ago, I can sleep 8-10 hours per days, now I can't barely sleep over 4 hours.
Avatar f tn H, who knows me less but was more thorough like taking blood and mouth swab test, etc. He seems to think I have a mood disorder (bipolar spectrum) on the the depressive side and thinks Mood Stabilizers like Lamictal would be better for me. He says SSRI's aren't working out for me becuase I have alot of side effects like sleeping too much, etc. He says SSRI's probably cause me more axiety (some do, but Celexa didn't).
Avatar f tn As a preliminary self- test you may want to look into Dr. Barnes Basal temperature test for hypothyroid (and adrenal dysfunction as well). Need details, post again or message me.
Avatar f tn maybe I'm just being a bit more touchy than usual because of the way the NS appt went. I filled out a 5 page questionnaire (I understand the reason for that as I'm a new patient) & he never ever even looked at it. Matter of fact he never once wrote anything down or typed into the computer...
Avatar f tn Chest xray Ekg Blood panel including thyroid. Urine test. I have no fever. I'm scared,its cancer but blood was ok. Should I have more tests done? If so what ones? I've felt this way before. But it went away. History of anxiety and depression. I take no meds. Getting very anxious bout this fatigue cause its hard to function. But I do. Have been working Insane hours for boyut a year but sliding down now.
Avatar n tn Hi karap: Not knowing anything about your condition, if you have been in similar situation for 2-3 months, I would definitely suggest consulting a psychiatrist at your earliest opportunity, which means first thing tomorrow. Until then, please consult some of the resources on the internet such as Depression & Bipolar Alliance and and see if your symptoms are similar to those of depression or bipolar depression.
Avatar n tn Just been prescribed effexor for anxiety and depression. I'm wondering what to expect from the pill. How long before I see some results and what side effects I may get.
Avatar m tn Because there is no specific lab test to differentiate acute from chronic HCV, each reported case or positive lab result would require investigation. Currently, there are not enough resources at the state or local level to investigate the thousands of positive HCV lab results that are received." I dont believe you should have any problem. Just do what you should always do dont share fingernail clippers, razors etc.
Avatar m tn If the doctor suspects you may be suffering from depression, he can give you a questionnaire to fill in to determine whether you are suffering from depression. If all tests are fine, get checked out for parasites and especially tapeworm.
Avatar n tn You might ask to have a stomach emptying test done; this will measure the rate at which food leaves your stomach. The nausea, bloating, acid and fatigue are all symptoms. It's an easy test, you eat a small amount of food with an isotope (which you can't taste and won't bother you) then lay on a table while a machine takes x rays of your stomach as it digests the food. Noninvasive and easy to do, but will give you some answers.
1684282 tn?1505701570 Patients with severe depression as measured on the 9-item Patient Health Questionnaire were even more likely to misuse opioids than were patients with no or moderate depression. Although this self-report of opioid misuse is already surprisingly high, it may well be even more common than reported in this study.
Avatar f tn In practice, double blind studies show they work about 30% of the time and you can up that to about 50% if you combine drugs, but the test for how well it works is a questionnaire and not a more scientific analysis that would be more objective. But no question, they definitely work for a lot of people assuming you find a drug your body absorbs well.
Avatar n tn But I fear that my continued commitment to losing weight will not amount to anything because of my history of depression. It is frustrating for me because I chose to see a mental health professional to improve myself, but in the long run this is reason for disqualification. I am not sure what to do at this point. As unbelievable as it may sound, they seem to give out medication for perceived mental illness without a full diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I am wondering if it is normal to have suicidal thoughts at all? And if it is what is considered normal? And if you took a psychological test and just said "NO" to any question that had anything to do with suicide, does that make you look wrong?
Avatar f tn At the first visit, the therapist gave me a questionnaire that included whether I'm taking care of myself, such as "last physical exam?" I had switched to a different clinic (with a new chart!) when I broke an ankle, but hadn't done anything else for my health lately. So it was time to see a new doctor. This time I made sure not to use any medical terms, and to present just a couple of symptoms at first.
