Avatar m tn 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? Also, including psychotherapy with medication might be the most effective course of treatment yet.

(These are just a few diagnosis listed in the DSM) The DSM gives a listing of symptoms for each of these disorders and the time the symptom must be present and distressing for the person to be labeled with the diagnosis. A person's symptoms are used to match up a person's diagnosis.

Avatar m tn Everyone with health problems gets anxious about it, but that's not a mental problem, that's life. Anxiety as a mental disorder involves chronic anxiety that is irrational and seems to have arisen from nowhere. If it arises from somewhere known, that's a different kettle of fish unless it's diagnosed as PTSD, which you don't have. So if you don't have an anxiety problem, the night sweats are being caused by something else.
780665 tn?1239030149 My symptoms haven't gotten worse but also haven't gotten better and I'm beginning to feel frustrated, I am also fearful and am starting to think that this won't go away and I'm going to feel this way forever. My question is 'does anyone ever REALLY make a full recovery from anxiety/panic disorder and if medication is taken do the symptoms just re-appear once withdrawl starts?
1319752 tn?1274429691 [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 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...

1660861 tn?1302620809 I think that is the difference though between generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. In my opinion when there is anxiety, it is a thought controlled thing, the what ifs or the thinking stuff. Panic disorder in my opinion is not controlled by any thought at all, it is just simply the body suddenly triggering alarm when there is none, as can happen in the middle of any situation, there was no preceding thought, nor anxiousness. Just BANG.
Avatar n tn hi i am 25 years old, and have had generalized anxiety disorder for about a year. i struggle daily with symptoms of anxiety like chest pain, shortness of breath, and obsessive thoughts of dying. i take 15mg of buspar twice a day and feel comfortable with that but my doctor wants me to start taking 20 mg of paxil a day. i am horrifired that if i take it that i will die. my main concern is the reaction it will have with my buspar.

Avatar m tn However, do not be fooled, GAD does not always HAVE to come along with panic attacks. In fact, those illness are two different things. There is GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and GAD w/ Panic Attacks. You may have the former. Now, that being said, many people think that anxiety is something that should come and go (like a panic attack); however, GAD is not an "attack". GAD is a disorder and can cause symptoms every hour, minute, second, etc.
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 I've been suffering from generalized anxiety since 1998 and now a clonazepam dependent. Feel better now a days but I am still desperately searching for my real self, I mean, the way I was when anxiety was not yet controlling my mind and body. Don't you feel it too? That the REAL YOU is not there anymore, no where to be found? Don't you always say to yourself, "This is NOT me!" What do you think, guys, will we ever get back to our own world before?
299912 tn?1341626700 And I must admit that I am a slight bit embarrassed about this, but not ashamed. I have had generalized anxiety disorder with panic attacks since I was 22 years old. While it was extremely horrible in the beginning, the symptoms have gotten better, but have not gone away. I rarely have panic episodes anymore, unless I am in a specific situation (more on that in a minute). However, I do have the typical overall anxious feeling for most of the day 2 or 3 days a week.
Avatar f tn This leads us to a root cause, thereby making us feel better. However, we persons that have generalized anxiety disorder (basically anxiety some or all of the time for no "real reason") have no real "trigger" that we can attribute to it (other than the anxiety itself, but for some reason, we find it hard to accept that).
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder 1 year ago and I was also having panic attacks at that time. One of my symptoms was a burning sensation. When I think back now, it all seems like a bad dream and I can't remember the details of the burning sensation (I also had a bunch of other very unpleasant things going on), but I do remember opening all the windows at night and trying to go to sleep, with no clothes and just a sheet on, and still feeling so very very hot.
1486478 tn?1307466597 I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder with agoraphobia and panic disorder, and clinical depression or bipolar it keeps changing. This goes back to 1997. I am now 35 yrs old and I must say I had no clue my problems were mental until I actually was diagnosed. It seems that I'm not sure what came first the chicken or the egg. Then I realized it became a cycle I felt sick which would make me anxious which would make me feel sick....etc.
Avatar m tn This isn't really a question, it's more or less a walkthrough of what I am going through with anxiety problems and alcoholism in hopes that it might help someone out there. Had I read online about how common anxiety attacks after a night of drinking are, maybe I could have started my road to recovery sooner, and maybe some of you can.
