Generalized anxiety causes

Common Questions and Answers about Generalized anxiety causes


Avatar m tn I did recently break out in a rash on by back, both flanks which is vrey rare for me to break out, almost looked like chicken pox/shingles but span's about 8-10 inches on either side with dispersed pustules. This may be a far cry from just typical Generalized Anxiety but its worth looking into. I was considering going gluten- free for a week and seeing if i would notice a difference although I'm unsure when the symptoms would decrease after that change. thank you again for your assistance!!
Avatar m tn I was tested for hiv at four and six weeks with the rapid antibody test. Accuracy? 2. In a fit of anxiety I scheduled a dna pcr test for tomorrow. Accuracy of that test? 3. If my test tomorrow is neg. what should I watch out for as far as these nodes are concerned? My neg at six weeks made me a little less anxious about hiv and a little more about cancer.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Avoid alcohol and nicotine Alcohol temporarily reduces anxiety and worry, but it actually causes anxiety symptoms as it wears off. Drinking for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) relief also starts you on a path that can lead to alcohol abuse and dependence. Lighting up when you’re feeling anxious is also a bad idea. While it may seem like cigarettes are calming, nicotine is actually a powerful stimulant. Smoking leads to higher, not lower, levels of anxiety.
Avatar n tn Ive been on Benzodiazepines all my adult life due to generalized anxiety. Im 52. In 1996 I withdrew from Valium, and ever since so many things make me very stressed. Sometimes my brain feels like its being squeezed. Things like calcium, I cant have any diary, vitamins even the B's, Natural progesterone, even though its suppose to relax, so many things, and it all started after I went of the Valium, and after having tremendous stress after doing so.
Avatar n tn Are swollen glands alone a strong sign of ARS? Are there many other causes for swollen glands? 2. Is it true that swollen glands associated with ARS are generally not painful but just enlarged? 3. Is it true that 96% of people displaying ARS symptoms have a fever? 4. Are all the sexual activities I listed having done besides receiving oral sex (fingering, kissing, masterbation) no risk activities? Thank you so much!!!
449946 tn?1205493932 I was told my two doctors that I am suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and I would like to know what the symptoms are.
230890 tn?1197651614 Irritability Muscle tension Headaches Sweating Difficulty concentrating Nausea The need to go to the bathroom frequently Tiredness Trouble falling or staying asleep Trembling Being easily startled In addition, people with GAD often have other anxiety disorders (such as panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and phobias), suffer from depression, and/or abuse drugs or alcohol. What Causes Generalized Anxiety Disorder?
Avatar n tn 2) If this is anxiety, are there any good books about anxiety and health that you know of or would reccommend? I have one about generalized anxiety/panic, but it does not help much, because my worries are not about symptoms experienced during a panic attack. I know that the increased heart rate and dizziness associated w/anxiety is normal, and am not concerned about that. Distraction techniques do not work. I am not anxious about anything but my health. Thankyou for any help.
Avatar f tn I also have some on my groin now. Everywhere I read says that HIV causes this in these places. I feel fine now other than these lumps, someone please give me some help!!!!!!!!
970140 tn?1247690779 Although psychological problems such as anxiety do not cause IBS, people with IBS may be more sensitive to emotional troubles. Stress and anxiety may make the mind more aware of spasms in the colon. IBS may be triggered by the immune system, which is affected by stress. Coping With Stress and Anxiety There's proof that stress management can help prevent or ease IBS symptoms. Some people use relaxation techniques such a deep breathing or visualization, where they image a peaceful scene.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the concern. I can't wait until they come out with that test that can determine if one has ALS right off the bat (which I've read is 95% accurate). Not sure what the holdup is, but this could save people tons of anxiety and grief. Most other tragic diseases can be diagnosed quickly, so atleast one 'knows' if they have it or not. The idea of "not knowing" causes more anxiety than "knowing".
Avatar n tn after about a week, I started to feel similar pain in larger area of groin and armpet. Days later the pain slowly generalized to my whole body. near elbow, my whole leg(mostly inner side), around knee, then spreading to fingers and toes. It does not feel like muscle/joint pain. some ache is within the muscle right above my knee, but some happens on my bones. for example, on the back of my hand, on the finger between joints.
2010625 tn?1329375656 I was just wondering what causes Fibromyalgia? Can Anxiety, Depression/Bipolar, IBS, or Genital Herpes cause it?
Avatar n tn I just wanted to share this good experience, because I spent several years worrying about my health and trying various things to releave anxiety symptoms. I'm sure there are many causes to anxiety, but sleep apnea is something to ask your doctor about. So my conclusions for myself at least were: 1. Don't sit around and get deconditioned, go for a 15 - 30 minute walk every day. 2. Try talking to an experienced cognative behavioral therapist instead of just the pill-pusher types. 3.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend suffers from generalized anxiety. We have been together for 6 months and have never had intercourse. He seems to be avoiding this as he is afraid of having an anxiety attacks. How come I help him overcome this because I really want to be more initimate with him and miss that aspect of our relationship.
Avatar f tn I am going to assume that the problem you have is what is called generalized anxiety (as opposed to panic disorder, or obsessive compulsive disorder or posttraumatic stress disorder). Broadly these are the options - 1. Benzodiazepines like lorazepam (Ativan), diazepam (Valium), clonazepam (Klonopin), etcetera.
Avatar m tn Just wondering.... I have had a sudden onset of generalized anxiety disorder. Probably due to a few strange illnesses over the past few years (Vertigo, not pleasant, bacterial infections and Bells Paulsey). I am a 40 yo male. Recently the most routine things have brought on un-nautural anxiety and a few full blown panic attacks (also not pleasant). Things like going to work, grocery shopping or cutting the grass.
Avatar n tn I did a bunch of drugs when I was 15 such as weed ketamine and cocaine and after my vision has change. However let's keep in mind I was just recently diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Had it for years, recently diagnosed. What you have is anxiety also, which should be a relief. Scary, but treatable. Flashes of light I get from migraines, even when the pain or aura aren't present, but those can also be caused by anxiety.
Avatar m tn No I don't have depression just generalized anxiety disorder but since I stopped Wellbutrin I started getting these spasms on my throat and neck but Wellbutrin made my anxiety worse
7603392 tn?1393176350 I'm not sure if this is what you have, but I was diagnosed with GAD. GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) causes me to over examine situations. When that happens my mind makes the situation seem bigger than what it actually is. For instance, if I have a simple dizzy spell, I get this rush of fear and truly believe that I must be dying of a horrible misdiagnosed disease. I have insomnia every night, and when I do finally fall asleep, my body wakes up in 4 to 5 hours and I can't fall back to sleep.
Avatar m tn What are the best medications that people have tried for Generalized Anxiety Disorder? I have what seems to be constant anxiety related to health problems (still determining if they are imagined, real, or a bit of both), and had been put on Ativan .5 mg to help with night sweats (worked for about 2 weeks), and now Xanax (works during the day but does not help at night), and am trying Zoloft 25 mg (which seems to worsen the night sweats).
Avatar m tn I over-analyze everything such as my pulse, funny feelings in my arms, my eyesight blurring, etc. I went to a few doctors and they told me I have generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. They prescribed me pills to take but I quit them all because they all cause horrible sexual side effects that just create more problems.
Avatar f tn So I suffer from panic attacks and generalized anxiety. Often when I get panic attacks they occur for no reason I can identify. Other times it seems to be health related..if I feel a strange sensation I start thinking something is wrong with me which causes a full blown panic attack. Even though logically I know I have experienced these attacks before and ended up being okay, each time i think "what if" there really is something wrong this time???
Avatar m tn i know i have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety just never had these symptoms prior and just worried that there is something wrong with my heart. please help tom.
Avatar m tn and my doc confirm it. but what he told me that hiv lymph nodes are generalized not only in the neck. and its quite large with hiv and mine is small less than 1cm. but what makes the anxiety is My doc said that my lymph nodes is unspecific. So how can i live or continue my life with unspecifec answer?????????????????????????????????????????????
Avatar n tn I know that these could be symptoms of BFS but I just wanted to weigh in on an experts advice as I've had a ton of anxiety over this. My grandfather was around 50 when the disease introduced itself and both my uncle and father are in their late 50's now. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I combine my Zoloft with Buspar, 15 mg. twice a day and occasionally a Xanax to sleep . I have generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. Talk with your doctor first if you want but I suggest you really lower your dosage. It is too much for your body and thats why you are so trembly and shaky. If you want to e-mail me let me know and I will give you my e-mail...
Avatar m tn And then it came back for another week. I went to a psychiatrist and he said I have depression and generalized anxiety disoder. He gave me lexapro. I hate the side effects. The last two days i've been having anxiety all day but at night it completely disapears. I keep putting off using the lexapro because i keep feeling better at times. Is it normal for generalized anxiety disorder to come and go like this?

Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 20 year old female who is considering getting professional help for my constant worrying and anxiety. After "Google-diagnosing" myself, I truly believe I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I constantly worry throughout the day, mostly about my and my family's health. Even something as simple as a pain in my finger causes me to start researching symptoms on the internet. I automatically assume the worst (ex: "Oh, it's my left finger.
