Avatar f tn I've been through a couple of doctors, stopped taking Methimazole last December because it made me feel horrible and finally found a PA who listened. She put me on a low dose of Cytomel (T3) when my FT3 was 3.1 (2-4.4) and after a couple of weeks, I felt so much better. After four months, I began losing some of the weight I gained last year. Now, I have to confess that I'm flat out depressed.
Avatar n tn Hi there, Firstly, you address to the wrong name. Even if it is to me...wrong spelling : o) Secondly, the consensus amongst experts, is that a 3-month window period is sufficient, provided no further risk exposure takes place. Those who required further test after 3rd month will know themselves when they go for thier test. Thirdly, you are absolutely rite about " I strongly encourage that you talk to your doctor about testing times if you are confused by any of this.
Avatar n tn well when i was like 2 mos pregnant i started to notice that my breast were extremely tender and sore, and i started to have signs of morning sickness. i also was so extremely exhausted, major fatigue symptoms, i couldn't keep my eyes open at work and would fall asleep as soon as i got home until i got up the next morning!
Avatar m tn All of your symptoms are all good signs of depression/anxiety disorders. I have been struggling with this most of my life, off and on since I was 14 (now 23). Don't let if fool you, it may come and go for a while and doctors may say that you have "bi-polar disorder". I don't believe in prescription antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication, as I have tried a multitude of them in my teen years and none of them helped.
Avatar f tn I went to a Muscul/Skeletal center, there I was diagnosed with reheumatoid arthritis, He also did other test and said I tested positive for Lupus , but because of the lack of other systems he didn't think I had that , also mild back flow of left heart valve. Treatment was a shot of cortisone in each hip and priscribed Meloxicam 1 day for 6 weeks this all helped a great deal.
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 n tn So I couldn't understand why the test run on me only had the capability to detect 5000 IU/ML. I made a lot of noise so the doctor ran the "Ultra Quant" PCR at 24 weeks. It was negative (< 50 IU/ML). So I felt a lot better about the result. I was on the 48 week plan and don't remember a whole lot about the tests after 24 weeks. I was negative again (< 50 IU/ML) one month post tx. I'm going back in a couple of weeks this will be 4 months post tx.
Avatar f tn Severe, untreatable depression Suicidal Lack of motivation Lack of energy Poor memory Lowered level of intelligence Life with no future Feelings of worthlessness I do not feel sorry for myself at all I am angry about this whole situation and just want it to end. Other than my grown son, I feel no other reason to be around. I don't even like re-reading this, I sound pathetic and I don't like that. I want to feel upbeat again, at least sometimes.
Avatar n tn I had a stress test as part of my annual physical and was told that I did well, got my heart rate up to 193bpm (107% of the age predicted heart rate) Blood pressure went from 138/82 to 184/72 but at the peak of exercise I had a 1mm st depression in leads v5/v6, which resolved very quickly with recovery. The dr at the physical didn't seem too concerned about it but said I need to discuss it with my regular dr. How concerned should I be?
Avatar n tn 3- what else can i do to rid me of these symptoms and depression.
Avatar n tn That doesn't mean you don't have depression as well but this sounds like a neurological disability to me as many of the symptoms are way outside of the range of what is classed under depression or any other psychiatric disability. And many neurological disabilities can cause mental changes such as psychosis or depression.
Avatar m tn Free T3 is most important because it is four times as active as FT4, plus FT3 correlates best with hypo symptoms. In my opinion the very best way to treat a thyroid patient is to test and adjust levels of the actual biologically active thyroid hormones (free T3 and free T4) with whatever type of medication is necessary to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels. Symptom relief should be all important.
Avatar m tn I am 47 and had been battling the health anxiety since 20 years. I have hypertension,hyperlipidemia & mitral valve prolapse with trivial regurgitation (which causes anxiety & palpitation). All these years my focus was mainly on heart, but since one month i has become very cancer phobic, as i remember one of aunt who died of cancer before 15 years..
Avatar f tn As I said, if you don't have symptoms suggestive of heart problems like chest pain or shortness of breath, the chances that you will pass the stress test are really really high. And it is better to find out early rather than later because most things in cardiology if detected early can be completely cured. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Hello Ashish, What you have described here are not typical symptoms and signs of an obsessive compulsive disorder. But as Hensley has mentioned, it could turn out to be a variant. It will help if you could write some more details about the situations which bring on the urge to go to the toilet. Do not worry about a diagnosis. This forum can help you understand your symptoms well so that you can plan further course of action.
Avatar n tn He has physical symptoms that we have been ruling out with the doctor for physical causes (his lack of belief that anxiety/depression is the cause). He has been on med's again for 5 weeks, but they are not doing their job. The psychiatrist has boosted & changed his med's to help speed up treatment, but so far not good. Bipolar disorder runs in his family & so does alzheimers disease. Could anxiety/depression cause these disorders to rear their ugly heads?
Avatar f tn I may have some slight depression since I am coming up on the 1st anniversary of my brothers death. His death has affected me greatly but since I've never had depression I'm not sure if I do now. I have been seeing a therapist for the last month or so. My first neurologist prescribed Cymbalta 60mg daily, Rozerem and Fioricet. The rozerem does not help at all with the sleep. I need to take 2 Fioricet's to make any headaches go away but I find that taking two will make me extremely tired.
Avatar m tn If I understand your post correctly, you are describing one of the most challenging and common aspects of psychiatric treatment - the sense of guilt and shame about the condition. Our clinic is a strong supporter of the Silver Ribbon Campaign for Brain Disorders for that very reason - to fight the stigma that prevents effective treatment. Of course, depression just intensifies this feeling, but it is common across many different psychiatric and neurologic disorders.
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 f tn Well when I used to experience this before my current recovery it was as an agitated mixed state which is an aspect of bipolar that has the anger of depression but the speeded up quality of mania. Anger can occur as part of depression though but you should discuss the specifics of this with your psychiatrist and keep a mood tracker as well and print out the results for them. What medication won't treat talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy can be helpful with.
786881 tn?1236560228 I'm noticing more pain in my knees again, and this is the first time that I can say that I might being experiencing depression as well, though it's a very different type of depression than I was expecting. I am due to go back to my new Dr and do labs with her and a pap exam in a month and a half. I should probably go ahead and go back earlier for the blood work since from the sound of it, this really is the depression people speak about being associated with Hashimoto's.
Avatar f tn I'm just a bit confused and asking questions so I hope no one is offended of my opinion on depression - I've been sad so I think of depression as sadden that goes on a long time...crying, not eating, not wanted to do stuff, you know??
Avatar f tn I doubt it. But I do have to wonder, and I suppose that's fueling my feelings of frustration. At the end of the month I will go back to see my MS specialist. I really don't have any hopes for a diagnosis anymore. I really just want to be treated for my symptoms and to be believed (which I think, at this point, I am). I've been at this limbo thing for four years now. My oldest daughter was a freshman in HS when this all began. She just graduated last week.
Avatar m tn If I can help save others from going through the pain and heartach that I have gone through by sharing my story then i will tell it over and over even if it only will help just one personwith this devastating mental illness be it bi polar , depression or any one of other mental isllness disease. If there is any way I can help please ask I will be there if you need me.
353964 tn?1238853319 I tried talking to my mom about how worried I was, but she just told me that its probably a physical symptom of depression since I have been to the ER multiple times with various symptoms and healthy test results. I understand that she doesn't want me to rack up hospital bills ( which i've already begun to do) by constantly visiting the ER. However I'm starting to think shes no longer taking me seriously.
Avatar n tn Glucose alone can't tell the full story. The symptoms are not carefully observed during the test - the classic story is of a man who went for his test, drank the sugar solution, became violent, and smashed the furniture in the waiting room. Upon leaving, he was given a bill for the furniture, and a test stamped "normal!" His glucose level didn't go below the level that lab used as an absolute criterion!
Avatar m tn For example, in vaginal candidiasis generally provide only localized symptoms in the vagina, with oral candidiasis, we pay attention only to the symptoms of mouth ... and treatments are local. However, chronic candidiasis has to be analyzed as a whole, we must go beyond its localized manifestation. A very important point which is usually ignored when it comes to diagnosing and treating chronic candidiasis, is that its origin is often gut, even when we are contemplating a yeast infection.
