Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment tucson


Avatar n tn I can't go to Mayo without a referral and my doctors in Tucson won't refer me. I am in an HMO and can't go anywhere without their permission -- including a visit with my gastroenterlogist who is too busy performing rectal exams to see me. There are no hepatologists in Tucson. There is only one other gastroenterologist in Tucson and my primary said he would refer me there. That was about six months ago.
Avatar f tn I have been having problems with depression for quite some time. The past 7 or so years have really been hard for me. In 2007 my Mom died, a month later my 16 year old dog had to be put down, in 2008 I lost my job, in 2009 my Dad died, later 2009 I started having marital problems which ended in 2012 in a divorce because I found out my husband had a girlfriend and child (4 years old) in another city. I moved into a new home and was ready to start a new life.
Avatar f tn 1. Follow Your Treatment Plan This is the most important thing you can do to help make your hep C treatment go smoothly. “Once the patient is on treatment, the compliance is very important,” says Hwan Yoo, MD, a liver specialist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD. Don’t miss any doses, and try to take the medications at the same time every day. Don’t miss your follow-up appointments, either.
1691407 tn?1332716147 He is being treated at the University of Arizona Medical Center in Tucson. He is on the 48 week program, so he still has over 24 weeks left of Riba and Interferon. He is undetected! That is great news, but his health otherwise is not so good....his mood makes it him very difficult to live with. His liver enzymes are in the 20's and his BUN was only 17! His Alk phos was even in the 120's, but his HE is bad!!! He is taking Lactalose when he and only when he WANTS to . . .
Avatar n tn What do you think I have, or who else to ask for tests/help/treatment? I feel in pain a lot and confused on how to proceed as no one seems to know what to suggest. THANKS!
1691407 tn?1332716147 My husband, 54, post transplant on 1/10/10, elevated ALT ans AST in April 2010, started dbl TX 135 pegasys and 600 riboviron, also Procrit 20,000 twice a week and Neupogen 300 once a week. He ended all treatment in December, 2011 as directed from MGH, as we had been referred to Mayo Clinic in AZ for triple therapy TX. MGH and our Vermont Hepatologist referred us to Dr. Hugo Vargus, at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, AZ in December, 2011. We decided to buy an RV and travel (bucket list style).

Avatar f tn The idea that getting pregnant again would cause more problems. Feeling like crap every single day. Depression. Being sick all the time from all the side affects from the meds. Not having an immune system to fight things off. Taking more time off of work, off of running. The surgeons are really good. One of them even hugged me the first time I saw her. Sometimes, I forget how bad things were, and then I see a doctor, and there it is all layed out in front of me.
Avatar n tn I know I was sinking into a deep depression before tx when I had no hope of having a full life. Another thing, I will talk to my doc about my blood pressure which is up do to the meds. 140 on the hi side. Normaly 110 or so.
Avatar n tn We actually have snow on the ground. I've lived in Tucson and it is a very big city, has some nice parts, and probably isn't as pricey as SD. Tuscon also has some mountains near when you need to get away from the blistering heat. It once got 115F there, and at 14, I was so amused I actually went and fried an egg on the sidewalk 'cause all kept sayin' it was hot enough. Tucson would be hot enough. The coldest I remember it getting there was mid 50s. Lovely sunsets, too. I miss it.
Avatar f tn Thanks so much for all your support and thoughts, guys! Maybe this doesn't come as a shocker, but this MS Specialist used his car key on my foot to test for the Babinski's sign. Yes, he's supposed to use a semi-sharp object, but I felt it was very unprofessional, and don't even believe he did the test correctly. He was very slow, and had to do it several times because my sock kept bunching up.
Avatar m tn This does not seem like an appropriate time to exploit Tim Russert's death by a writing SUGGESTING that following an alternative treatment plan being sold by a doctor known only by his initials MIGHT HAVE saved his life. Implications and scare tactics do not replace controlled research. If there is such in this matter, it would be good to see it.
Avatar m tn A good thyroid doctor will treat a hypo patient clinically by testing and adjusting Free T3 and Free T4 as necessary to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels. I think you can get some good insight into clinical treatment from this letter written by a good thyroid doctor for patients that he sometimes consults with from a distance. The letter is sent to the PCP of the patient to help guide treatment.
Avatar n tn You don't know me as most don't. Debbie from Tucson Arizona only 19 days on the w/d road. I wish I could help more but I am new to even admitting I have a problem. The one thing I do want to say is that you are going through a very hard time. You seem to be doing quite well with it actually. You are aware of your feelings and aware of how they affect you. Stay in touch with them.
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!
5848755 tn?1378327029 Your bone marrow surgery is scheduled on the day I leave for Tucson. i will be gone for 4 days, coming back on Sunday night. I would be interested in knowing how it goes with you. Please let us know as soon as you get the results. (We have a tendency to get attached to people on here. Guess it's something God put into us). Wishing and hoping things go good for you!

Avatar m tn But even that restriction would of course be abused by the government to take guns away from perfectly healthy, law-abiding citizens who innocently seek treatment for mild depression and who honestly have no clue that psychiatric drugs can cause violent behavior. A far better solution here would be to outlaw psychiatric drugs that cause the violent behavior in the first place.
Avatar n tn Also me and my girlfreind think I have a possible OCD disorder from these allergies/sinus, when i feel fine which is rare I dont have any anxiety, depression or OCD problems(which makes me believe that my depression/anxiety/OCD is related to allergies/Sinus). My life is suffering dramaticaly from these problems, I really need to find some help very soon.
225237 tn?1333142599 I have suffered from depression on and off all my life because I was abused by an uncle. - Well, that was then, and this is now. Now I am a confident little old lady with white hair and am very loved and wanted. - Don't wait until you're old to feel this way! You have daughters who look up to you! Show them the good side of Mommy! And it's wonderful that you have a full-time job! You are so worthy! Value yourself and count your blessings! Do you have beautiful eyes?
Avatar n tn It will never go away, no treatments have been proven to work for this and I think something needs to be done to try and find an effective treatment for this!!!! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there is no treatment for chronic ear. I have been doing a lot of research since this happened and I finally have a diagnosis...but no luck yet. I may be on to a little something and will let you all know if I find something that at least minimizes our issue!
429155 tn?1205676864 Now, for the past 3-4 days I can't fall asleep, I have horrible dreams about doctors forcing narcotics on me, I wake up in the middle of the night, and I cried all day long yesterday. I feel full blown depression coming on. I've never been depressed, I mean truly depressed in my life. I'm not trying to scare you at all....I just want you to be aware that just because the physicals seem over, doesn't mean it's over.
Avatar n tn I am beginning to get into a sort of depression because of these feelings I have and want them to stop but nothing helps. I am hopeless and this is no way to live. Its good to know that other people feel the same way but frustrating that everyone's doctors dont know what this is!!!
Avatar n tn I do suffer with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) anxiety disorder and severe depression and think that the pressure of trying to fit in to day to day life (which I do, albeit slightly altered to suite my obsessions and compulsive behaviours) could be attributed to it!!
Avatar n tn I am definitely going to make sure that both ENT's are notified of the results so they can be a little more proactive in dealing with pt's with chronic sinusitis not responsive to traditional treatment. Please let me know if this pans out for you...It has certainly given me hope that I can finally have some peace from my chronic sinus infections.....
Avatar f tn They also prescibe bioidentical hormone treatment too. I'd like to know the list of foods suggested you eat. I want to make sure that what I'm doing is on track with some of the other positive experiences I've read about.
534800 tn?1217170959 I also live in the NE humidity outside Boston and before I moved here I have lived in the drier climates of CA, NM and Texas with no similar skin problem as I will describe;. Living in the north east humidity, I have noticed a stange heat rash around the sock line that can move up my calves. This does not itch and comes out on days I am active, even though I am very conscious to hydrate.
Avatar n tn I found out through a friend about a chiropractor/acupunturist who does an allergy elimination type treatment. There are a lot of quacks out there and I was very happy when I found her for my son who was having severe food allergies. When my son and subsequently other family members had such perfect results from this treamtent I let the doctor test me and found many food allergies. Wheat, milk, vitamin C, and many others that were not as severe.
