Common Questions and Answers about Hospital anxiety and depression had scale


Avatar f tn 30, because it's probably still working in the morning and thats why i'm always tired. We talked about my anxiety of going to the hospital and had I thought about what I want to say to the consultant and I said yes I kind of know what to say. We did some really intense EMDR and it was really hard. I had to recall what I was thinking about and they were really bad memories of which I had to focus on until I got physically upset.
Avatar f tn Ihave been to the dr. and he thought i had bppv and that i needed phisotherapy iwent and did this and the phisotherapist said he didnt think i had it because he did all these things to induce dizziness and i didnt get dizzy.He told me to go back if it happens again but i cant afford it .So the dr. just gave me some pills (serc ) to help with the dizziness and did a few blood tests but no he didnt actually diagnose me with vertigo.

Avatar n tn The original poster is/has been suicidal, which shows a pretty intense level of anxiety and depression. Dr. Handsfield is simply acknowledging the depth of this poster's concern, and saying that this poster needs to find someone he can trust IN PERSON. He is NOT saying that he should get tested again a year later; I think your own anxiety is causing you to interpret his comments as such.
Avatar n tn About a year or year and a half ago i used ecstasy about 10 times. Totaling 10 or 12 doses. About 6 months ago I lost 80 pounds had no appetite, and had severe anxiety proplems. I have seen a doctor about it, and they put me on paxil cr, and it has since helped. Gaining weigt now, and eating better. I am wondering if this will cure my problem, or will i always have to take the paxil. Is there anything i can do to help myself. I know this was the dumbest thing i have ever done.
Avatar f tn I have been suffering with HIV anxiety longer than I can remember, well 18 months since I gave oral sex. I have had every symptom in the correct tine scale, my partner has had a dry cough for the last 6 weeks and has just had a chest xray. I am so scared, so terrified we both have HIV, the guys at the HIV forum say its impossible to get HIV from oral sex. Please don't just say get tested as I am too scared.
Avatar f tn I wish I could give you the medical reasons why this happens, but I'm not a doctor, just another mom who had small kids, anxiety, depression and no life to call my own. I cried a lot. I had a lot of headaches. I think it's just from being all stuffed up and the tension and all the bad feelings...............crying often helps to get rid of some of those feelings, but sometimes we're left with the headache.
Avatar f tn You are not alone in any of your fears and if you read some posts here, you will understand not only how many of us there are, but the unbelievable range of symptoms that anxiety/panic and depression can create. I must agree with your doctor and urge you to get into some therapy. I know it's not cheap, but if we don't get to the root cause of our anxiety and deal with it, it will be with us our entire lives , and can frequently get much worse.
Avatar n tn I took Cipro for 10 days and I have had the worst anxiety and depression. My question for anyone is...does anyone feel back to normal yet?
1175284 tn?1263976683 I was feeling better for a while after that and my amemia got better, and my periods got shorter and not as heavy. I actually had a few that were almost normal, meaning they lasted a little over a week. BUT.. I am now again going back down hill.. I am on my period now and it has been 2 months straight of constant bleeding. I sleep all the time, I am tired all the time, I am in a very bad mood alot, angry at everything in life!
Avatar n tn I don't have much to offer in this area, but will share what experience I do have. I was put on Prozac (supposedly) for 2 years back in "96, for post-traumatic stress disorder, and I had heart palpitations and severe anxiety. After taking the medication for 2 months, I was unable to show any emotion. You could have told me something horrible and I would have stared off as though nothing were wrong. I became increasingly concerned, because I knew this was not me.
446896 tn?1237806342 At 0 I had more energy but now I have anxiety and depression a see a psychiatrist. Lexapro and Xanax but the best is Tramadol I get where I shouldn't. Clearly the taper is critical and mine was not done correctly. I hope one day to have my life back.
Avatar m tn Right now I am seeing a counselor and psychiatrist for depression/anxiety. Is it working? I don't know. I'm taking Effexor for the "chemical imbalance" and talking to the therapist for my "distorted thinking" and inability to feel anything good, etc, etc. Like you, in the past, the only thing that made me feel happy was being in an intimate relationship. I still struggle everyday, and it sure isn't easy. I really hope things turn around for you.
Avatar n tn This is my first day on this forum, but I had to respond to your post. I am 33 years old (male) and have had chest pains on and off for the last 1 1/2 years. I have been to the ER 6 or 7 times and my family physician(s) countless times. I have had an angiogram, to echo's and countless blood tests and EKG's. Also had an upper GI as well. Still have the pains from time to time.
Avatar m tn When you get addmitted to a Psych hospital for depression the Psych doc assigned to your case uses what is called a HAMD score to grade the level of your depression and anxiety. There are 5 levels. Mine was at the highest level on the scale. Even in that state I could remember sitting on my grandpa's lap as a child, but I could not even recall what my doctors name was or anything short term.
Avatar n tn meanwhile i became even more depress that i started to develope health problems from depression and anxiety. not to mention i let people walk all over me. i figured ill be stronger when he and i get back together because this isnt the real life im supposed to be living. so i didnt care about nothing. granit, i manage to get a GED and 1 semester of collage because my life long dream was to become a graphic artist.
Avatar n tn It sounds like you have kinda lost your will to go on and that s not good. Depression and anxiety have been my world. I stay away from the ambien as my body just didn't do well with it. I take Lexapro for a mood stabilizer and trazadone at night. The purpose o a mood stabilizer is to provide energy aso. Have they checked for an ulcer or hiatial hernia?
Avatar f tn It happened again tonight as I was trying to tell a family member I was experiencing anxiety, saw another figure, and had a panic attack (from what I think). I keep being paranoid about what might be in the house and every sound/movement freaks me out. I don't know what to do, I can't afford treatment and I won't even sleep due to fear and racing thoughts.
Avatar m tn Hey, look, I have had depression for over 20 years. I am 71 years of age, and I am fighting depression every day of my life. OK it is jolly hard, but we are all fighters. Of course it can work for you. Depression does make us think negatively and have a low self esteem, that is why it is so hard. Like you, many think it will not work for them. Many people want to give up and just die because it is the easy way out. It is never, never too late. For goodness sake you are only 43.
Avatar m tn I have learned to live with this but it ruined much of what i loved doing before, i would paint and show and speak about it, play guitar on stage etc and read at church. now i cannot do any of these as even if it is suggested i begin to sweat and tremble.
Avatar m tn My abdominal pain was almost completely gone, and any anxiety/panic I had was mild in comparison to what I had faced previously. Then in mid-December, I had a SEVERE bout of abdominal pain during and after going to the bathroom one day. Both sides of my abdomen (about where each kidney is located) felt incredibly cramped. My stomach felt nauseous for the rest of that evening, and I think I might have had nothing more than a coup of soup and some water that evening.
990354 tn?1307136486 some that you may never of heard of. If it is just depression and anxiety Doxipin is good for the anxiety and Wellbutrin is good for depression. To really calm your anxiety Clonazepan R..05 mgs works great, but they will make you very sleepy. Talk to a doctor first. A correct diagnosis is key to getting better. These are all prescription drugs. Mixing meds is VERY dangerous! and could be fatal if taken with other meds like oxycontin and zoloft.
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 have you ever tried amino acids to help with your anxiety and depression? i a;so suffer from depression and have been on many antidepressants with no good results but since taking the aminos 5htp and L-theanine i am like a different person?they are all natural so no side effects or withdrawal.
Avatar f tn Sorry, I re-read what I wrote and it DOES come off as rather rude...I'm sorry, I didn't mean to. End of a long day. I didn't know you were pm-ing others and I keep getting updates in my email about this thread. I suffered terribly from depression and panic attacks before I went on T3 in addition to T4, to the point where after a panic attack that lasted 4 days, I ended up in the hospital.
Avatar n tn Hi, I can't give you first hand information like so many good people here can. But my daughter quit cold turkey and was taking much more than you. She suffered severe depression and was so very tired. Headaches,diahrea,and much more. The people here can explain just what you need to know. I just want to encourage you to come here and talk. This is a caring family here. They understand and will help you through it all. You will be glad you quit when the rough part is over.
Avatar n tn Once I had it removed I did not have a period for 3 months and like you I had pinching etc...They performed a scan and no cysts found...
100019 tn?1335923317 In the last 2 or 3 weeks I've started experiencing anxiety. It's not everyday and it's not depression. It's that fear thing and feels like my body has kicked into high gear. If I remember correctly from school the fight or flight response has do with your adrenaline, doesn't it? Has anyone else experienced this and what do you do/take for it? I have an apt with doc but not till the 13th.
Avatar f tn I've always been one of those gals trying to loose 10 pounds and never being able to and now this. My anxiety is so bad I had to throw my scale away and put a mirror on my dresser away. I try on my clothes over and over to make sure I am not loosing more weight. Sometimes my mind sees my body as skin and bones and it's just so terrifying! I had some doctors appointments July (cardiologist, gynecologist and gastroenterologist and none of them seemed concerned.
