354706 tn?1279474395 Well, well, just as you are thinking that everything is fine, something hits you in the face. My mum’s OVCA treatment went so smooth that it is almost unbelievable. Just consider this – stage 4, abdominal filled with cancer spreading to liver, colon, diaphragm and spleen. As there is no hope of optimal debulking, the doctor tried chemo first. After 2 chemo, CA125 dropped from 165 to 15. CT scan revealed that most tumors were gone/shrunk.
Avatar n tn I was going to start treatment fall of 2003, but moved out of state for 2 years, moved back in nov last year, started feb. 10. Biggest fear: I need my brain for my job. My job is very important to me, and the impact on my work is my biggest worry. Its sunday, so let me say a big thankyou, to my family. They carry so many of our burdens, and I for one am blessed.
Avatar f tn I recommend a psychiatrist because they are most knowledagble with the kinds of medication to treat depression. We're close in age and I agree that your body shouldn't hurt like that. But I also have suffered with depression for years and know what it can do to you. You're now healthy and should be able to enjoy your life knowing that. Don't delay, the sooner you seek help...the sooner you will feel better. Best wishes and take care.

Avatar f tn Hepatologists are more knowledgeable about hep C treatment and its side effect management than GI Drs, and if possible, you should have one in charge of your treatment. Also, if there is any chance of pregnancy, you may have to delay your treatment as the ribavirin caused birth defects. (If you plan on being sexually active, your Dr should have you on birth control for the duration of the treatment and 1 year after.
Avatar n tn Hi Recently i was asked by the doctor for a CT Scan of the brain with contrast. When i went to the Radiologist befor the scan they asked me to confirm that i m on fasting atleast for 04 hrs. I confirmed that I had a mild breakfast in the morning almost 05 hrs before however i was having drinking water from time to time. To this they confirmed that it does not matter I ca go ahead with the scan....
5211527 tn?1365185765 I am wondering if my daily life stress could be causing my sudden severe headaches and muscle spasms in my neck,face/head.I have seen my doctor and my CT scan was ok. I have also been having symptoms of depression lately,,from life style changes etc...I know depression symptoms can also have effects on your body like headaches and muscle aches/spasms.Why do I feel so nervous and excited inside?

Avatar f tn I'm not really sure if you are asking me about her first time in treatment, or the one she is in now. The treatment center she entered yesterday is a 5 day medical detox from oxy, they were going to use clondinine (?) for the anxiety, but her BP is too low, they did start her on suboxone tonight once the w/d's were strong. Please know I am not passing judgement on anyone, or what they have used to beat addiction, but she will be on the Sub for only 5 days.
Avatar f tn I failed to think about the possibility of a concussion and focused on treatment for her neck. That weekend she noticed memory problems and depression. Again, I didn't think about the ball hitting her on top of her head and focused on seeing specialists regarding depression. I just heard about concussion causing depressed. Do you think it could be possible that my daughter has depression as a result of a concussion?
Avatar m tn I finished my second round of TX about 7 weeks ago and most side effects have gotten much better. Depression and brain fog have not. First TX in 08 everything improved very quickly. Has anyone else had this problem. Hope this is not a stupid question to ask.
Avatar f tn It is fixable and you have to determine what the type is to know the treatment. You really should consider a pituitary center so you get better testing (in theory) so get copies of everything and do research so you know if you have a good decent doc instead of one who just does prolactin and says all is well. Pituitary can be complex but it is treatable.
1691275 tn?1322331107 ) I've been suffering from vertigo, fatigue, a sort of pinching pressure around and behind my eyes - especially while walking, talking, or driving - and, most alarmingly, a feeling of cognitive detachment and rather severe depression for almost three months now. I got a CT scan a few weeks ago, and the doctor said, "I have great news: you have massive sinus disease!" (Great news because he didn't see a tumor or aneurysm.
Avatar n tn The treatment of chronic headache disorders can include medications which are typically used for depression, epilepsy, and high blood pressure. Even though these medications were initially designed for one purpose we utilize them to try and prevent headaches form occuring. Therefore, if your doctor is prescribing an "anti-depressant" that does automatically mean he/she thinks you are depressed. You should ask the doctor why he/she is using that particular medication.
Avatar f tn Since January 15th I have had 3 ultrasounds, a pelvic mri, abdominal mri, 3 blood tests, a mamogram which was highly suspicious which led to another mamogram which led to a breast biopsy being told I could have breast cancer, to a ovarian cyst where one report was worse than the one before it and could not rule out cancer until that was yanked out. A CT scan with contrast. Yes surgery went fine but the 3 months of anxiety going into it has drained me.
Avatar n tn Hello and welcome! In my unofficial opinion, it sounds more like anxiety (or OCD) to me than depression, You're hyper-focused on things, "what iffing", and finding yourself searching the internet a lot as a result of those "what if" thoughts. You could also be contending with depression as well. It's not uncommon for a person to have BOTH anxiety and depression. Those are just some ideas.
Avatar f tn Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has been diagnosed or not.
Avatar n tn I am 59 years old married to the same man for 35 years March 1, 2004. In Sept. 97 I was dx by my psychiatrist, Dr. Brenda Keefer in Ft. Myers as depressed. I took Zyloft 100 mg for 4 years then it stopped working so we tried Celexa, Lexapro, Wellbutrin, and finally Effexor. I actually took myself off all of it for 4 months in 2003 and was fine. On 12/29/03 Dr. James Boorstin (akaChemical Jim the medication Wizard) told me I wasn't depressed - I was bi-polar.
Avatar n tn Often I would not want to look in the mirror because when I looked at myself I felt like I was an outsider looking in. Many times as a child and a teenager I would do or not do something in a certain way (just simple things like what kind of sponge I had to use to wash the dishes) that the devil would come and get me or torture me in some way (not a voice I could hear, just a feeling). I also have a reoccurring feeling that people close to me can read my thoughts.
Avatar f tn and then guilt trip me for not making it to work, telling me I was going to lose my job when in all reality I wanted nothing more than to turn myself into in-patient drug you snapping at him a time or two? PLEASE!!!! I would've welcomed that....... Prayer works...... I would've never said that before all of this. But I'm saying it now. Rest well, I pray you both will.

667078 tn?1316004535 Thanks Alex for sharing this with us; I too think many of us are in the Denial stage for depression. We go thru so much that no one can see and if we mention all of our problems, we do get uncomprehending looks; I have friends who think my Tysabri infusion should just bring me back to normal, just like them. There is the "but didn't you just have an infusion", and it takes all the patience I have to smile.
Avatar m tn if they just try it for 3 days, and see how much of a difference it makes in their depression / mood. I'm baffled as to why this hasn't made more news as being a successful treatment for depression. Maybe not enough people have tried the 1000 MG a day route ? (which is a completely safe amount) I take 500 mg's in the morning and 500mg's at night. my sister was almost just as baffled as me when she was on her 3rd or 4th day.
Avatar f tn Nobody could believe it could happen and I had a hard time getting any treatment until eventually one good doctor sent me for a kidney ultrasound. I was immediately sent for an CT and that's when they found it. I was in severe pain because of it and the subsequent treatment afterwards. The pain eventually died down last year and thats how I started with PTSD, anxiety and depression. My kidney was left in but doesn't work very much.
Avatar n tn Long story short, the xanax can contribute to depression. My sure fire cure for when the depression sets in is as many cups of Twinnings English breakfast tea as you need until you fell happy again. The caffiene in the tea seems to keep the "crash" of other caffeneited beverages away. Plus, you'll be awake and chipper. Best of luck to you all, I have dealt with depression since I was about 15 (31 now), and we have to stay strong.
Avatar f tn I have had migraines and headaches all my life, and depression for 20years. I had CT scan for arthritis and suspected cancer, but clear thank goodness. So sorry you are in pain so much. Let me know how you get on as I am concerned for you. Take care.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thank you very much for your question. I can understand your worrying concern about long term migraine headaches and no sure success treatments that you have tried. Generally, one sided headache & orbital pain (eye pain) with numbness symptoms could be suggestive of migraine. The mainstay of the migraine treatment is always to identify the triggering factors and to avoid them. Triggering factors could be different foods such as cheese, chocolate, alcohol and even few fruits.
Avatar n tn It may be reactive in terms of relation to stress or a more persistent major depression. In any case, you should see a psychiatrist if nto already as short or long term treatment may be very beneficial for you, and result in a retuirn to normal. Common symptoms of depression include feeling of hoplessness, loss of interest in activities, suicidal thoughts, and physical symptoms also, such as early morning awakening and poor sleep, loss of energy and appetite, and constipation.
619439 tn?1282097679 30am. I remember being wheeled in a room and the anesthesiologist and nurse introducing themselves. I was crying the entire time. They put electrodes on my forehead, and then started an IV. The nurse got ready to put an oxygen mask on me and I stopped her and asked if we could pray. She told me to go ahead and pray and she held my hand. As soon as I finished the prayer I remember someone saying it’s all over. I was back in my hospital room and a nurse was helping me get into bed. That was it.
