Avatar f tn I have a question. I was diagnosed years ago with Generalized Anxiety Disorder with Anxiety Attacks and Agoraphobia. I had a discussion tonight with a friend who keeps saying I do it to myself. I have had this along with a diagnosis of ADD as well as Bipolar 2 and then Clinical Depression. I was wondering if Anxiety is really something that can be controlled by the mind or if it really does need to be treated with medication?
Avatar m tn I have a generalized anxiety disorder and a phobia of HIV and rabies. I went to get my blood work down and the nurse used a vacutainer to draw blood. However, the vacutainer holder was reused ( the nurse confirmed it is only the needle which is changed and not the holder as it does not come into contact with the patient) and now I think I will get HIV and I keep thinking about HIV until I get tested again at 3 months after the window period. luckily I have medicines however I hate this.
Avatar f tn I wish I could give a glimmer of hope. I have almost all the symptoms. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I have had it since I was 19. I have been on many different meds, psycho therapy ect, I am now 33 and still have the anxiety. The only thing that works is getting drunk and poof the anxiety magically goes away. I traded one problem for for another. I know being a drunkard is terrible but omg its so much better then feeling like im dying every day.
1319752 tn?1274426091 [92] Because this condition can mimic organic mental disorders, such as panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, or even schizophrenia, a number of medical professionals believe caffeine-intoxicated people are routinely misdiagnosed and unnecessarily medicated when the treatment for caffeine-induced psychosis would simply be to stop further caffeine intake.
Avatar m tn I have generalized anxiety disorder and i am a hypocondriac. At the doctors office i always get blood pressure readings of 154/88 with heart rate in the mid 100s. This made me nervous and anxious and it was hard to believe my doctor that i had white coat hypertension and tachycardia. However, now at home i am getting readings of 114/65 HR 58 bpm. I definately have white coat syndrome and my anxiety is very relieved.
Avatar n tn Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is defined as chronic, excessive worry and fear that seems to have no real cause. Children or adolescents with generalized anxiety disorder often worry a lot about things such as future events, past behaviors, social acceptance, family matters, their personal abilities, and/or school performance. All children and adolescents experience some anxiety. It is a normal part of growing up.
Avatar m tn Hi, there. I've watched both of your videos. You seem to have identified the fact that you are experiencing panic attacks. Have you consulted with a psychiatrist about prescribing medication that will help you? I have generalized anxiety disorder, and I take Klonopin. It's my understanding that Klonopin is a very good medication for those who suffer specifically from panic attacks. Why suffer when you can get relief?
Avatar f tn ve actually posted in here and found out that everything I was feeling was GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). Along with the number of symptoms I was feeling, I lost twelve pounds in just about a month. I was freaked out because I'm now flirting with the low 100's and I actually was afraid of wasting away to nothing. With anxiety, your appetite may change without you even noticing. I would still see a docotor for further testing though. Good luck!!
Avatar m tn The two chief diagnoses where Benzodiazepines are more likely to be prescribed are for Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder - as that is what they are approved for. Another big one is "anxiety due to a generalized medical condition". If you are only experiencing panic attacks "every now and then", the physician likely feels that that your situation does not warrant treatment with a Benzodiazepine.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder when I was 18. I believe very strongly that I have it. But there are days when I almost feel normal. What is it like for you?
Avatar m tn Benzodiazepines have robust efficacy in the short-term management of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), but were not shown to be effective in producing long-term improvement overall. Although benzodiazepines are much safer in overdose than their predecessors, the barbiturates, they can still cause problems in overdose.
Avatar m tn You can have generalized, and consistent symtoms of anxiety, called generalized anxiety disorder GAD, without having just panic attacks, or panic disorder. Your symtpoms sound a bit more on the severe or distressing side of anxiety disorders. My questions and suggestions would be, if this is the first time you are experiencing this, yes it could be anxiety, but go to the doctor urgently to be sure it's not serious.
Avatar n tn I took it for Generalized Anxiety disorder, my mom still takes it for full blown panic attack disorder and both of us know it may help you fall asleep but it won't necessarily help you get quality sleep. Have you tried any alternatives? I understand by the way, I have depression, anxiety, PTSD, all kinds of fun stuff!
Avatar m tn My doctor says I have GAD (Generalized Eating Disorder). But Im experienceing other symptoms that Im afraid may have something more to it. Migranes, Dry heaving, nausea, Sharp pains in my chest and upper abdomen, loss of appetite. Help Please!
2032451 tn?1333061536 It sounds like you may have generalized anxiety disorder, which stays with you all the time but, it's worse at night. An I correct about this?
Avatar n tn It sounds as if your son does have an anxiety disorder "of some kind". But that is not the end of the world. Anxiety in children is very common and is highly treatable. Our child was diagnosed with severe social phobia at six years of age and today is able to function normally and manage her fears and anxieties. The treatment of anxiety usually involves intervention, therapy and possibly medication. Please contact your family doctor for advice re this issue.
Avatar m tn I know this is hard, but I would again talk to your doctor about generalized anxiety disorder which can be involved with several of the things you are describing. Do you still receive treatment for that in terms of medication or therapy? I know you said it didn't really help but treatment takes time and sometimes some trial and error to find what will work best for someone. The good news is that you've been fully checked out. This *should* give you some reassurance.
Avatar n tn I suspect what you are seeing is "generalized anxiety". When these irrational fears interfere with one's life, it is called GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). I might suggest you google the phrase "GAD and children" or "generalized anxiety disorder" or similar words/phrases to better understand this issue. Perhaps there may be some information on some of these site which might be of help. I wish you the best ....
Avatar n tn I have the same problem. i was on xanax 6mg a day for a long time and almost went to rehab for them. I have bottles and bottles of them in my room and looking at them and remembering how they made me feel like a zombie, gives me the strength not to take them and say I don't need xanax to run my life. however to completely contradict what i just said, i switched to klonopin 4mg a day and i feel much more stable, even mood swings.
Avatar f tn Wellbutrin made me horribly agitated all the time. OMG! I hated it! Paxil worked, but I hated the sexual side effects, like most SSRI's. Buspar is a drug approved for anxiety, without the sexual side effects.
Avatar f tn in the States, has unlabeled uses for GAD and SAD, (Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder) it is primarily prescribed here for fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. Nowhere can I find that it is beneficial for sleep problems, although one of it's side effects IS "fatigue," I don't think that is the desired effect for a sleep aid.
Avatar m tn Hi! I was wondering if anxiety can cause chest pains? And I don't mean specifically during panic attacks because I'm aware of that. But I have generalized anxiety disorder and my biggest anxious fear is of heart related issues. Is my constant worry about my heart causing my persistent chest pain? Is that possible for normal generalized anxiety to do? I'm a 19 yr old male. Iv had 3 ekgs, 1 holter monitor and 1 echocardiogram. Everything normal.
