Avatar m tn Bob had chosen his words very carefully when answering a question on HIV risk and statistics, for everyone to understand, but sadly it is evident that this subject is still causing confusion and angst. I have a great deal of respect for Dr. Bob, who has a considerable amount of experience and expertise, with his whole life devoted to the subject. I for one would not even attempt to challenge his views or have any reason to do so.

Avatar m tn About nine months ago I had a severe anxiety attack out of the blue. The anxiety led to severe depression with continued anxiety. It has been the worst nine months of my 49 years. Because there was no apparent reason for anxiety in my life, I have felt all along that there had to be some underlying reason. I've been to half a dozen doctors and had every conceivable test trying to find a cause, all to no avail. My wife and brother-in-law have been battling chronic Lyme for several years.

Avatar n tn By the way, I think more people with anxiety who stutter suffer from other anxiety issues as generalized anxiety or social anxiety but am not sure about the statistics.
Avatar n tn I'm 27 and have panic disorder with generalized anxiety. I manage it well and I take Xanax and Klonopin on an as needed basis. I recently discussed with my GP the fact that my blood pressure is higher than normal. It is normally 120 over 92 which isn't that bad although the 92 is borderline. I am tall and thin so it seems somewhat unusual. Anyway my GP said not to worry since it is not in the high 90's.
652671 tn?1353715765 I have moderate depression and generalized anxiety disorder. My psychiatrist refused to give me any meds because i'm 10 weeks pregnant. I called and cried to my OB/GYN and he prescribed Wellbutrin 200 mg/ day and Buspar 30 mg/day. It is EXTREMELY hard for me to function (work, take care of my other children, wifely duties) especially with the physical symptoms of my anxiety and depression.
Avatar f tn He is even ok with not taking a test. However, I have a history of generalized anxiety and ocd, so I am fixating on this every moment in my day. I feel like I've been a good girl my whole life and I made one horrible decision that I regret ...please help shed some light on this for me : ) I have been in a monogamous relationship for so long that I feel like I just fed myself to the sharks.
Avatar f tn Yes, of the symptoms that you have mentioned, many may be attributable to Paxil. Generalized anxiety disorder is certainly a known side effect, as is general gastrointestinal discomfort, such as nausea, and also insomnia. As for weight loss, it seems to me that if your stomach is often upset, you may have cut back on your food intake, which would lead to weight loss.
Avatar m tn I been diagnosed and got treatment for social anxiety, generalised anxiety and health anxiety, CBT helps a little, but doesn't help with these feelings. I also have GERD which flares up sometimes. These symptoms seem to have started 2 years ago after taking Omeprazole, don't know if there's a link, or this acid reflux causing my current lower left side discomfort as well. Tried Yoga, meditation, ignoring all my symptoms, they helps a little bit, but not much.
Avatar m tn I still randomly feel itchy down there but I stopped checking myself because I know its just anxiety. The anxiety is just gonna make things worse so try to calm down. The statistics are greatly in your favor. I m going to have my final blood test soon to know whether I have herpes or not so I know what you're going through.

Avatar m tn I passed through severe anxiety and waiting for ARS symptoms. I fell all the time malaise, though i did not loose appetite but couldn't eat timely and properly, smoked more and get drunk frequently. After 10 days I felt burning sensation on my hand skin, underarm swelling of skin was still there, pain on rightside of neck and some dull pain on right side of chest (not like pain while coughing).
Avatar n tn He has a very anxious personality, which was exacerbated greatly by the onset of generalized seizures. He was put on Zoloft, for the anxiety (50 mg), which seemed to help. This drug is also used for depression. I would definitely ask your Dr. about it. It is not at all surprising that she is experiencing depression considering what she is going through ( or whether the keppra is contributing to it). This is very tough to deal with at any age - for the parent as well as the patient.
Avatar m tn I do feel incredible stress over this incident and shake occasionally from anxiety. I've stopped doing everything I used to do and can barely make it through work. I don't think I'm extra tired, but it's hard to bring myself to do anything and I'm not getting good sleep. Today I noticed both lymph nodes ached without touching just by turning my head in bed. They also feel like they've maintained their size. My hands have also felt like they have a weak grip for the past 5 or so days.
Avatar m tn , sitting in an AIDS clinic or anything like that? Do you have generalized HIV anxiety or something more like somebody sticking you with a needle?
Avatar n tn Thank you Brian, I know i am paranoid, and actually i have seen a pyschologist due to this unbeleivable amount of anxiety and he also things i have generalized anxiety disorder. But either way I am absolutly terrified that for some reason this test is going to come back positive.
Avatar n tn I have times when I see little like stars or auroas then black out for a few. I have also been diagnosed with Generalized anxiety, bipolar, and depression. My symptoms seem to expand from fibro, although they seem to overlap others. I am being sent to see a Nuerologist, but I want to make sure it is the right thing? Also, does this sound like ms symptoms? Is there any statistics for the correlation between the anthrax vaccine and MS? I am 35, now military disabled.
Avatar m tn (I will try to keep this concise), I have a few questions for which I have not been able to find any reliable/researched answers for. 1. What are the statistics for high risk transmission of HIV ? - in other words female to male transmission, unprotected vaginal sex where both are 20-26 white affluent. 2.
Avatar n tn I was overweight, I used to smoke, quit drinking 12years ago, been treated for high BP, History of Major Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Part of my reading has indicated a person can be living with cardiomopathy for some time before the symptoms actually become acute. I believe this is probably what happened to me. I was walking around with it for a long time before it suddenly became evident.
Avatar f tn You need to stop testing for herpes because unless you have a new partner or your husband does, there is no way you could have or get genital herpes. Have you always had anxiety and is it generalized anxiety or is it specifically about having genital herpes?
Avatar m tn Shed 20lbs in 3 months. I have noticed my anxiety level has decreased, or If I do have anxiety or panic, that it subsides alot quicker. But I still have the chest discomfort and heart skips. They have not completely gone away. I still do drink alcohol though, 3-4 times a week. I'm thinking I may have to do a 30 day detox and see if maybe my symptoms subside a bit more. I still have to life a life though.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed then with generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and depression. I was put on Prozac and Xanax and recovere fully. This past January I had major attacks again with all of the exact same symptoms I had when I was your age. I have had an MRI of my brain and C spine with contrast and they are both normal. I have all kinds of blood work and it's all normal. I am now on Remeron and Xanax again.
Avatar n tn This fact led, I believe, to the suggestion that treatments for panic disorder may be effective in IBS, even in the absence of panic disorder. 4. Generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder are ‘common’ in those with IBS. All of these facts tend to suggest that there’s a strong relationship between anxiety disorders and some GI problems such as IBS. It also makes it extremely difficult to understand and sort out the ‘which came first question.
Avatar n tn Other forums such as ones on Generalized Anxiety Disorder and muscle spasms reveal the same thing and many of these people attest to muscle weakness as well. One writer for Associated Content site, has actually began trying to balance the “muscle twitches” issue in a series of articles they began writing after their own ALS neurosis, triggered by online search. I had a MedHelp Dr.
Avatar n tn Do you think that this is a controled forum just to lower anxiety? I had protected sex with a sex worker, however, I had an open cut that definitely come in direct contact with vaginal secreations. I was told my risk was extremely low and not to even bother getting tested (only for anxiety purposes). What is the deal? Truly someone must have some down this this.
