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 I thought this was probably related to my generalized anxiety disorder. More recently I have sort of developed a mental fog and some short-term memory problems and occasional (about every three days) headaches which I never used to get. I know I probably sound extremely paranoid, but about every four days I have to clean my shower drain cover because there is hair clogging it up (I shower everyday). I am a 20 year old male. So do you think I have a serious health problem?
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?
1132574 tn?1271672466 Hi Everyone, I am new to the anxiety forum. Had a a few weeks of anxiety hit me in January when I was having medical testing done. I am 36 and have high blood pressure every time I see a doctor as I just get so nervous when I go to the doctor. They ran tests which freaked me out even more and wham, I was then anxiouss all the time. The tests eventually all came back normal. With that reassurance my anxiety vanished.& I was even able ot take my BP at home with no anxiety.
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 Yes, yes, and yes!! This is called GAD, generalized anxiety lingering in the background between attacks, very common!
Avatar n tn I am suffering from depression and extreme anxiety-generalized, social. My stomach is in knots everyday and I hate being awake. I am medication resistant and sensitive to side effects. I had to go off many antidepressants because they made me sick in one way or another. I am currently on 50mg of lamictal and 75 on seroquel. I don't notice any change in my anxiety.
Avatar f tn No Jasmine, something like that would not be the effects of zolft especially since you've been off since june. More than likely it some form of generalized anxiety, I get the feelings that you described every once in awhile it's like a total cognitive washout. It used to scare me! But now I know what will pass usually I will just only down for 15 or 20 minutes, and that usually does the trick.
Avatar m tn I am consultant neurologist says everything is ok.I did very well in cognitive memory assessment .I am still prescribed a tablet which I am to take for life.Please explain to me in simple words what this all means.
391834 tn?1229342874 ve just started taking meds for my thyroid so hopefully my symptoms (fatigue and generalized felling of anxiety/nervousness) will be no more!
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with GAD 16 months ago but I have experienced anxiety symtoms since I was 18 now I am 51. Therapy has done wonders for me to understand the way my mind processes anxiety symptoms and has taught me how to deal with them. Also the frequency of my panic attacks have decreased since going through therapy and coming to this forum has helped . My concern for you is your need for a Dr. you can trust. Maybe you should consider going to a Dr. that has a good reputation.
1390847 tn?1344657468 I was just curious about generalized anxiety vs. anxiety over a specific thing. For me, I dont have generalized anxiety, I have a specific anxiety of throwing up (emetophobia). I wonder which is more "popular"...generalized or specialized?
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.
1448936 tn?1363206346 I see so many posts about the scary symptoms we all encounter from anxiety. I got this great book, The Stress Management Handbook- Strategies for Health and Inner Peace, and it has an extennsive list of symptoms related to anxiety. I hope the next time someone is getting anxious over a symptom they can check out this list and realize just how much havoc anxiety can wreak on our bodies.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that you have generalized anxiety? Google it and look at the symptoms. I was just diagnosed with it and you sound exactly just like I did and still do.
Avatar m tn 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 f tn Thinking about trying Lexapro for generalized anxiety. Any advice or experiences? I have previously tried Buspar (had no effect) and Zoloft which made me constantly nauseous.
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 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 f tn 8 weeks today! I think its a sticker. I suffer from generalized anxiety and stress over the smallest things!
Avatar m tn My 60 years old mother has shown some sign of memory loss occasionally. Her MRI report is pasted below. What do points 1 & 2 mean? 1. Few punctate T2 / FLAIR hyperintense lesions are seen in the frontal subcortical white matter without any restricted diffusion on DW images - ? clinical significance. 2. There is generalized prominence of ventricular system, cisternal & sulcal spaces. 3.The rest of the parenchyma is unremarkable. Bilateral basal ganglia and thalami are unremarkable.
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 Your symptoms mostly suggest normal body sensations that seem more prominant than normal because of your anxiety about all this. Most likely the white spots indeed are hari follicles, or normal sebaceous skin glands -- which are easily seen on anybody's penis. If you remain unconvinced about my reassurance, see a health care provider to examine you and perhaps consider STD testing. But it would be extremely surprising to find out you have any sort of STD or other infection.
4762310 tn?1362165935 You only mentioned panic attacks above and so it could just be generalized anxiety.
Avatar m tn Since your self-test are negative, I think you are possibly not only suffering from generalized anxiety disorder, but also obsessive-compulsive disorder. I say this, because it seems that you are on the edge of obsessing about your possibly having bp. I honestly do not think you have bp. It is your anxiety disorder that is making you think this way.
