Avatar m tn My 23 year son was in Toronto , Canada for the last nine months and has come back to India just today morning. He says that during the month of July (on 13th of July) because of depression he went to a prostitute and had sex with her. He says that she has applied condom on his penis before the sex but he says that the condom became loose at the end of the sexual intercourse and was filled with fluid. He also says that he might have swallowed her breast milk.

Avatar m tn I just want help for this from anyone who have experienced this in their life. Will any stress disorder treatment in Toronto like CBT Associates help for this? I have almost ruined my life with this behavior. Can anyone help?
Avatar f tn I am receiving acupuncture for the withdrawal, as well as Bach Flower Remedies, and a homeopathic treatment for the depression. I think getting off of Tramadol is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I think of you Suedeva, I hope your pain is being managed. Keep going and get off this stuff, there has to be a better way, my friend!
Avatar f tn My partner used to be a smoker but he finds it actually makes him more nauseus on treatment .......go figure. At the clinic my partner attends in toronto they are doing a wide scale study on marajuana use for symtoms and treatment with hep C - I will see if I can get a link to the study. To date, their study suggests it is not toxic to liver .......
287900 tn?1218647818 Various reasons for it perhaps but doesn't change the fact that it's common to go into a depression after treatment ends. And not just Hep C treatment, it's a known occurrence after cancer treatment also, etc. So if you were thinking you were alone in that, you're not. There are some threads on here about all that, if you need to read more. I tend to think it's part emotional and part physiological but doesn't matter....
1641772 tn?1301361489 They also do the Beck and Hamilton scales to determine your depression score when prior to starting treatment and weekly during treatment. During these sessions you can ask any questions that you want. If you want at any time you can go to the approved TMS treatment and go back on antidepressants. I have not noticed anything yet aside from the side effects.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn ( I understand in Canada sometimes they do not always allow a biopsy) Other than being on treatment, like before treatment, how was his health? I know that trillium is a flower and some varieties grow in Canada, but what is a trillium deductable? Even if the liver has quite a bit of damage the PegIntron treatment can be successful, especiallly if he is a geno type 2 or 3. And, once he gets rid of the hep-c the liver can get better. Make sure he takes the meds on schedule.
Avatar m tn I believe Xolair is FDA approved as an injectible treatment for asthma. Clinical trials for treatment of chronic idiopathic urticaria are happening in a few medical centres in the United States and Europe. I am surprised that your allergist would not be able to provide you with information on its availability and FDA status.

553995 tn?1332022440 I'm having difficulty keeping myself above water with the depression that comes with FM and my genetic predisposition to depression. Can anyone enlighten me as far as what to do?
Avatar f tn Healthy diet and sleep are the best treatment for anxiety and depression. it can occur due to several reasons so the type of treatments should be decided only after considering the intensity of it. Depression and anxiety will adversely affect our self-esteem. After the death of my husband, I had gone through such a situation and got a mood disorder treatment and clinical counselling with the help of an expert psychologist in Toronto. My doctor (Dr.
1923802 tn?1331990528 You're so young it could be anything that is causing fatigue. I'm on treatment for hep c and could have had it 20 or more years. It wasn't until my liver actually was going into Cirrhosis when it hit me. I was so tire and fatigue, would wake up in the morning never feeling rested, headaches, just feeling very sick,losing weight. I am also in my late 50s. I would suggest you get a liver biopsy. You need to find a good doctor who specializes in hep c and find out you status.
Avatar m tn If you're talking about the Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), then there seems to be. Google scholar some of these and read abstracts to see what specifically it has been shown to help with. McGoldrick, et al. (2011). A Controlled Comparison of the Effectiveness and Efficiency of Two Psychological Therapies for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing vs. Emotional Freedom Techniques.

Avatar f tn It's my last year of University and at this point I doubt im going to graduate. I was doing so well, until 4th year when all my anxiety/depression from the past 10 years just hit me all at once. I can't concentrate at all, as soon as I see a test or I try to read, my mind starts racing and I can't even comprehend a single thing, even if I the same line over and over.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I am a little frustrated - I've been trying to get some help for what I suspect is adult ADD, and I keep on hitting dead ends. I've asked my regular doctor, a psychiatrist, and a few more people in the mental health field (a counsellor and a social worker) and never seem to get an answer on what to do. Because I am also depressed, there was often the response of "let's fix your depression first, and worry about that later".
1923802 tn?1331990528 sometimes depression can cause debilitating fatigue too. Make sure when you talk with the doctor about this mention any meds you take now; some meds of course can be responsible for making us tired. Even moderate exercise can often decrease fatigue; it’ll be one of the first things your doctor will recommend, probably. I realize that the tundra is starting to descend on Toronto this time of year, but still try to get out and walk a little when the weather permits.
Avatar f tn I am at about the same point in this journey as you, about 10 months post treatment, clear also. I as well feel I'm still in an uphill battle. You didn't mention your age, I mention this because,I think I can rationalize some of my symptoms to just being a couple of years older than when I recieved my diagnosis. I also think we are just more acutely aware of aches,pains, mood changes etc. after going through the HCV process, still shell shocked if you will.
687700 tn?1227107421 Hi Dear I will start my treatment pegasys on jan/09/09 and just would like to ask you how prepear should I be for it?
Avatar n tn I am also suffering from depression, which I believe is related to my bulimia. First of all, does anyone think that these problems are related to my ongoing eating disorder? Second of all, I am trying to seek help but I can't afford treatment or therapy so I'm wondering if there are any free online opportunities to seek counseling or help of any sort. Please help me. I'm very concerned about my wellbeing and my life so if anyone has ANY input, I welcome it. Thanks.
Avatar m tn We also assessed the presence of depression, by means of the Montgomery and Asberg Depression Rating Scale, and fatigue, by means of the Fatigue Severity Scale. An algometer was used to measure thermal and discomfort thresholds in all of the patients and a group of 61 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects. Results Pain was present in 61 patients.
Avatar f tn Hi, A few months ago I was prescribed Paxil CR for Depression caused by long term GAD. Of course being a person who suffers from anxiety I did some research (to scare myself futher) and found some information linking Paxil to Breast Cancer. Something to do with prolactin. I am post menopause and 55 now. Dr, can you you explain this study they did in Canada about this, how true it is, and should I quit the Paxil CR, maybe ask my Dr to put me on something else. I started with 12.5 in Feb.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (under treatment), high cholesterol levels, obesity, acne (almost cured with Accutane), Sleep Apnea (Using CPAP, however, I can fall asleep in the morning only), migraine and high blood sugar level (no medication yet) and so on. More than anything, I see myself depressed and I feel very tired- kind of permanently tired/ burned out. My depression level has increased over the years to the point where I feel I have no energy and etc etc at all.
Avatar f tn If he doesn't get help these illness can get worse in time. The treatment for depression is talk therapy and anti-depressants. This will be difficult to do because you have no insurance. He needs to see a psychiatrist as they are qualified to diagnosis whatever mental illness he has and then prescribe the correct medicine(s) to help him manage his illness. If he is found to have depression, and he finds a medicine that works for him his energy will return. So it is a catch-22.
2159080 tn?1336794002 These medications help your body to fight the Hepatitis C virus. Treatment can cause side effects such as flu-like symptoms, depression, weight loss, rash, anemia, and insomnia. Sometimes side effects can disrupt a person’s life and day-to-day activities. Even though side effects are common, many can be managed with the help of your doctor. Some people may stop treatment because of side effects. Never change your dosage or stop taking medication without talking to your doctor.
230262 tn?1316649534 Trouble in Toronto too. Yes i to remember back in the day. I would pop say 3 percocets and groove to the new country station.moreover i would say,boy this is great, i feel as you stated that there was a party in my head.I guess we downgraded our neuroreceptors in our pleasure centre of the brain.
Avatar n tn Very rarely serious structural problems are the culprit. The recommendations for the treatment of these kind of problems, include adequate posture, taking care of not lifting heavy objects, or if lifting them, using an adequate posture to do this. Also sleeping on a hard surface as compared to softer surface helps. Analgesics such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen help, however patients should avoid overuse. The chronic use of narcotics is not good and certainly not recommended.
