Avatar m tn Atlast someone around my age.. I'm 16 years old and suffered from Generalized Anxiety Disorder.. I'm so depressed ..
446896 tn?1237806342 Fluoxetine is used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa (an eating disorder) obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). It's anti-anxiety properties are however, minimal, and will not handle a major anxiety attack. If you're feeling extremely agitated and anxious, I recommend you contact your psychiatrist for an appropriate medication, to get you through this period while you're coming off the prednisone.
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?
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder back in my early 20's. I am now 35, male, married with 1 child and one on the way. My work is stressful beyond the imagination. Financially, i am always worried about things. I've been walking around thinking that the feelings I'm experiencing are only me - and lately, i've been thinking that i'm crazy. But now, after reading these posts, i don't feel alone. I have feelings of burning in both legs, my sides and even my arms.
Avatar n tn My mother for example made trips to the emergency room, 25 years ago when she began having frequent PVCs and runs of them, after a period of severe stress and anxiety (I inherited her anxiety disorder). She is now 75 years old and has kept the PVCs controlled via daily Xanax for all of that time. Amazingly, this same benzo drug is what controls/reduces mine and so I too have begun to take it regularly at low to moderate dose.
Avatar f tn I suspect you are seeing the beginning signs of GAD - generalized anxiety disorder. Often, this disorder tends to "rear its ugly head" about the age of your son. Anxiety disorders are an inherited trait so there is nothing you can do to prevent it nor did you cause it. I might suggest you first educate yourself about this disorder by googling the phrase "GAD and children" or "anxiety and children" or similar words/phrases.
Avatar f tn Hello all..I'm new to this! I have had GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and panic disorder since I was 15..I'm now 30.. going on 31 in March. I recently about a month ago started experiencing panic attacks again and severe depression. Well the other day my boyfriend and I were out of town and we had woke up early the next morning.. with not much sleep the night before.. we got ready and we out to eat.. 30 minutes later we went to a mall and i suddenly felt a panic attack coming on..
Avatar f tn As Doctors are very knowledgeable in the healthcare at times I feel as though they may give anyone the assuming medicine that in generalized in the disorder their paitents may be going through. Taking advantage of their intellegence as a write off to make their job easy. Truely, Any Doctor cannot exactly know what a paitents body is going through. Only you know what your body can and cannot handle.
Avatar f tn For what it's worth......I have recently been diagnosed with "GENERALIZED ANXIETY" disorder......I had always had an underlying anxiety, but managed it by self medicating - smoking pot - Recently I started to abuse NORCO PAINKILLERS.....for about 3 months.....8-10 a day. Decided to get off the Drugs.......but was unprepared for the consequences. Apparently I had an "underlying anxiety" issue that, as I said above, I self medicated in order to cope.
503727 tn?1210442710 I have severe panic disorder and anxiety disorder and go through whatt you describe. Xanax should help the panicky feeling, but they can actually make you more tired and drowsy. I would suggest asking your doctor to start an SSRI, which helps in the long run. You are not alone. I am 18 and have been struggling with this since I was 13. You can always give me a msg. Email me at caitlin.***@****. Don't give up on hope. I have gone through this most of my life and there is hope!
Avatar f tn Remove the underlying Anxiety and these sensations will also diminish. Anxiety disorder is a behavioural issue not an illness. you need to change your behaviour/perception through operant conditioning. Medicines and Coping strategies are temporary solution, permanent solution is change the way you think.
Avatar n tn I STRONGLY feel that your problem is in fact anxiety disorder- it is a chemical issue in your body that can be treated with an antianxiety medicine. You will have to get in to see a psychiatrist/psychologist doctor as they are the only ones who will probably prescribe the medicine for you. My daughter is also 14 and has been on Paxil for a couple years now. She had the same exact problems and was having panic attacks 3x a day and even at school causing quite a problem.
Avatar n tn Due to my current condition of Generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks, and OCD, due to the accident I'll never be able to quit taking them. Mine is a rare case as well as some of you I suppose. I also take lexapro 5mg QD. This is my story and hope it helps someone. You can't stop taking this medication abruptly. There is no way. Tapering with a doctors assistance is my suggestion. Please listen, I know.
Avatar n tn I guess you can also talk to a psychiatrist but they're probably more expensive cuz they are MDs. I always thought that the psychiatrist do the prescribing and the therapist does the talking. Well, my doc wants me to see a psychiatrist first cuz he thinks I might also be suffering from post pardom depression and a psych can better diagnose that and prescribe the right med if needed. My doc also gave me Xanax a few weeks ago.

329994 tn?1301666848 I do have GAD ( Generalized Anxiety Disorder) which seems to have gotten much worse after this hellish going on a year. I am going back to my surgeon, on July 15th, and after reading your post to Bad Luck, I wanted your feedback. I, too, think that I should be over the pain. I cut back on fiber, today, as I was in so much pain yesterday ( and the last few) that I have started back on pain meds, after work.
Avatar n tn Most people take 6-8 weeks to become therapeutic, so it's usually safer to have them on something else in the meantime for adequate seizure protection. FOr mood disorder, the dose ranges from 75-300mg/ day in research studies for the drug to be effective. The clinical response is used to judge the dose of the drug that should be used (although in your case, the level needs to be high enough for seizure protection).
Avatar n tn If you are physically dependant, and want to go off, you do need to taper slowly, since going off it suddenly can cause a seizure. Xanax is most often used for short term relief of anxiety. Most docs won't use it as a first line medication for sleep, because of its addictive potential. Chat with your Doc, be honest, and you'll be able to decide whether to stay on it or not.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety, dysthymia, social anxiety, and PTSD. Now my therapist thinks I might have Adult ADD as well, what do you know. I've taken citalopram and buspirone for depression and anxiety. As I said, my dad was both physically and emotionally abusive with me when I was a child. I'm 31 now and still do it, but only while I'm alone. My boyfriend doesn't know I do it, although sometimes he rocks while holding me when we go to sleep (very sweet).
Avatar n tn The fact that your ectopics have been visualized and deemed benign should be extremely reassuring. If it isn't, then you have a different issue, which is anxiety. I understand where you are coming from, as I spent years worrying myself (literally) sick over benign ectopic heartbeats. Sometimes I can go months with none, other times I am having several a minute including other atrial arrhythmias like SVT. Ectopic beats are not deadly in a structurally normal heart. Even a lot of them.

Avatar m tn I recently been put on Pristiq (anxiety med) I am High Stress/Anxiety,Worrier,Hypocondriac,etc. This cresent pink light appears worse on tv,,monitor,light back grounds. This started yesterday for me and has not gone away and is driving me CRAZY! I had a optomitrist and Opthymologist appointments this past month for blurryish problems and they both say my vision is GREAT NOTHING WRONG! Nothing wrong? There is I know what I see!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and causes anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats. The anxiety causes more chest pain, more gas, and more discomfort. I have been trying everything to treat myself. Changed my diet (was drinking lots of soda and taking NSAID pain relievers every day) for the most part, but due to my work schedule I do eat too much fast food to this day. I drink nothing but water now, I have been watching everything I do.
Avatar n tn As I had mentioned in my earlier posts I am already taking an ammino acid high potency complex which is really helping reduce my anxiety and also allowing me to sleep. When I mentioned about the continuing muscle weakness, she has suggested A.O.R. brand magnesium Malate Renew which is used for fibromyalgia and other neurological problems. All of these are totally natural ways to help the body to heal itself.
Avatar f tn Its not easy. The sad thing is I joined a couple yahoo groups of patients who are considering it, are about to go through it, or just had it done. I've looked at about 200+ cases where people come out looking great, and only about 5 or 6 look a bit off. I figured those are pretty good odds for such an invasive surgery, but lo and behold, my doc was right in that tiny percentage of not really knowing what he was doing. And I started this process in 2003.
Avatar n tn After re-reading your post, I'm a little worried about an eating disorder. The fact that you're really thin and all your bones stick out might just be because you ARE really thin... everyone's hips and pubic bone and ribs and knees are gonna seem huge when there's no fat to even things out. And you have the mindset common to eating disorders. Just a thought. I'm really concerned about you. I hope that you can get the help you need.
Avatar n tn My GYN seems to think that nothing stumps her so hopefully we will solve this mysterious skin disorder. I was also thinking that we all have something in common. I take Kariva birth control. I did use KY Silky at one point in time. I have a cyst on my labia. I have cats and someone told me that cats can give people a skin disorder I forgot what it is called but it comes from their feces(gross) I guess you get it when changing cat litter.
Avatar n tn I read your comment and got some of the Burt's Bees hand creme, coupled with using antihistamines my itch seems to have gone today. I have been suffering with this problem for over 3 years now. This "condition" has been causing my major anxiety as well as discomfort. Reading this discussion has made me realise I am not alone.
