Depression treatment in arizona

Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment in arizona


Avatar n tn I am genotype 1a and was on peg-intron/riba for one year. Needless to say I am not thrilled at repeating treatment. Arizona, if staying on the treatment for two more months means that you have better chances on being a sustained responder -- do it!!! Two months is better than repeating the treatment. Also, may I just add a note of "thank you" to everyone here. I cried for two days after my doctor's news.
Avatar f tn Hi.. I am 27 years old, living in Atlanta,GA.. I recently moved here from Arizona last month to be closer to my family. I have had severe jaw problems for many years. I have had conservative treatment, followed by many surgeries to try and repair the damage to the joints. Unfortunately, the surgeries did not help my pain. It is at this point (2004) that I started seeing a pain specialist. I am on Duragesic, Roxicodone, Neurontin, and Klonipin at night.
Avatar n tn in fact, seldom have had headaches at all except occasional sinus headache). This is made better by being outside in bright light. Thank God I live in Phoenix, where even the occasional "gray" day makes everything worse. Evenings are bad. I turn on all of the lights, am getting recessed ceiling lights installed, but the symptoms are still very bad. I don't understand why more research is not being done on this, considering the grave effects on one's life.
Avatar m tn Hello All, I just joined this group today so not sure who is who or how much interaction happens in this particular group but I wanted to ask for some feedback from others. I am 31 years old have been diagnosed with PTSD, Panic Disorder, Depression, HAD without Agoraphobia as well as ADD. I am on several medications which took years to find a combination of sorts that would address my symptoms of all listed diagnosis.
Avatar f tn People get so concerned about the side effects of Interferon they forget that Hep C itself is wreaking havoc on their bodies, not just their livers. I was diagnosed last July. I started treatment in late Sept. Treatment was/is no picnic, but it was/is doable. I would do it again in a heart beat. (Well, I am still on treatment (48 weeks), LOL.) If I was in your situation, I would definitely treat too. Hopefully, treatment will help address the lymphoma. Best of luck. Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I'm just curious if anyone has ever died from treatment. I am in the "watch and wait" mode like many others here. A family member asked me that question the other day and I didn't have an answer. I haven't seen anything on any support forums about this. Since the treatment is so harsh on some people it makes me wonder if it can ever be fatal. Thanks....
253566 tn?1219683299 My husband did his treatment 8 to 10 months before I did. He started in 1999 into 2000. I started my treatment in 2000 into 2001. Six months for the both of us. Now we are in terrible health. There are times that we feel good for a short period. It seems like a cycle. Our first onset was with costeochondritis. Felt like a heart attack.
Avatar f tn You need to take care of your mental issues. People who have a history of depression are more likely to have the hepatitis c treatment cause a depressive episode. That you "can't get out of bed" and are "so depressed" is an obvious indication that you are not ready to undergo treatment at this time. What are you doing to overcome your mental issues? Are you taking anti-depressants? Take it one step at a time. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I only realized this after moving to Arizona from Illinois. In Illinois is constantly rains and there is storm system after storm system. In Arizona this only happens on occasion. And I noticed on the occasion when low pressure weather systems are coming through the area my right ear goes thumping, thudding, etc.. its annoying Now, that doesnt explain why its only my right ear and why its been happening for only the past 5 years.
Avatar f tn In the last few months I have been getting a sudden weakness in both arms. It comes on suddenly and lasts a maximum of 5 minutes. When it happens I cannot lift anything. I feel so weak that I have to sit or lie down until it passes. This week it hit me twice. Before these 2 incidents, the last time this happened was a month ago and before that was probably another month (2 times in a week). The sensation is from the shoulders down to my hands. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn Hello, You will most likely get no where with Lyme disease and an Arizona neurologist. I am presuming that you have travelled in your life, and thus, do not in anyway limit the possibility based on that simple variable. If you are going to look for Lyme disease I am guessing that your closest bet is going to be travel to California to see a physician who specializes in Lyme pathology. I would suggest some research via "google" using the words "Lyme" "Net.

Avatar n tn Are you affected worse during weather changes or rainy or humid weather? Or in summer or winter or all the time? I ask because I live in a mild sub tropical climate and mine used to be worst at the start and during winter which is dry, but the last couple of years I'm affected really badly when it rains and in the humid stormy summers.
Avatar f tn All of a sudden I had pneumonias,bronchitis,sinus infection after sinus infection-I went through god knows how many courses of predisone and antibiotics in a very short amount of time. After about two years of suffering, my doctors decided it was enviromental. I lived in okinawa japan at the time. They transferred us to the bay area in california where I continued to stay sick with the same types of illnesses.
Avatar n tn If you would care to know my opinion, I believe that if your sufferring is significantly greater than before you discovered this depression in your skull (and granted your symptoms aren't a suggestive effect of what you have read online) then of course consult a true physician who can feel the severity of the indent and add up the symptoms to make a correct diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I am sorry if I didn't provide enough information. I am being treated for Grave's disease for the past year and experiencing symptoms for the last 7 years. Since I have been on the medication, I have gone from Hyperthyroid to Hypothyroid like a rollercoaster ride. My question is, Does Anxiety come with being Hypothryoidism also? My doctor has told me that since I am not hyperthyroid the anxiety is more likely to be caused by something else. Thank you for your patience!
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn ) say 'you could have thoughts of suicide'...well, I'm cetainly not there...but then again, I won't see my 'treatment' doctor until January. I'd like as much info as possible before I see him, so I can add to my 'notes'...this poor man may not realize how MUCH I have to say, while seeking knowledge of this reprehensible disease, and hoping for a "clear" outcome...but, onward we go.

Avatar n tn I like getting up in the morning now and I love learning how to live. In all honesty guys, life is getting better and better. So don't give in to this depression your feeling right now, you would miss so much out of life. Keep going day by day, it is all so worth it and I wouldn't change anything because it got me here and I'm enjoying the journey finally. You all have been a great help.
Avatar n tn If nothing else it will be therapeutic to discuss these issues with you all. Depression is starting to set in over these issues and I can't help but think there has got to be some way to fight back and regain some confidence and acceptance that age will happen but we don't need to sit back and go down without a fight. I am 57 and will confess that I have not taken very good care of myself. But that is going to change, starting now.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar f tn It seems to me, at least talking about the UK, that the HIV bandwagon is so well established that any mainstream respectable politician just about has to be on it. In addition, people in this country have access to antivirals which work, therefore are not dropping dead so much, so the horror and death is not among the voting public. It has become sanitised, acceptable.

Avatar m tn My mom has dementia and now it has gone so bad that I am thinking of contacting an assisted living centre in Arizona named Prestige Care which is nearby. But I am worried if she will be fine and happy there. Can depression bring on symptoms like those in Alzheimer's disease? As I am new to this I don't know the procedure of adult care home or the best treatment for Alzheimer’s disease dementia? Can anyone share your advice/experiences. Thank you.
Avatar n tn And yes i realize that i used ill effect and depression, but no more than anyone would have in a similar situation.... she recieved the i.v..and is now eating regularly, (not dieting) and is still not allowed to leave... this is truly puzzling..
