Avatar m tn Ok, I have been recently depressed about various things in my life for the last year or more. Not suicidal or anything but not satisfied with my life. Anyways I recently decided to try a pot brownie and totally flipped out. I had full on panic attack for probably an hour and thought I was going to die. I had been thinking about the last year or so and was wondering what I was doing in my life and all of a sudden my heart rate skyrocketed and I was in a panic.
Avatar n tn Whether you have generalized anxiety or social anxiety or garden variety anxiety can only be diagnosed by a doctor.........and at the young age of 13, (even tho it's obvious you are mature for your age) your hormones are kicking into high gear and that can sometimes bring on anxiety. I would urge you to talk to your parents about these feelings and I believe a talk with your doctor is in order. You do not have to feel this way. You'll be fine as long as you reach out for the help you need.
Avatar m tn However, I kept getting symptoms which are classic signs of anxiety. My one question is how long can these affect me? Two months later and I still get dizzy spells almost daily, chest heaviness, a cloudiness to were I can't concentrate on anything and digestion problems. Will these eventually go away? I've been to my Primary Care about 4 times in the last 2 months. If I don't have a sinus infection or something then these must be caused by stress? Are these purely psychosematic?
Avatar m tn How long does Effexor XR withdrawal last? I understand the time frame will be different for everyone, but I'm assuming there is a general window that most people fall into? A few weeks? Months?? Some background: I've only been on anti-depressants for four months. I was first put on Zoloft while I was inpatient for an eating disorder, but it didn't seem to do anything. Two months ago I was switched to Effexor 150mg/day, as well as Neurontin 900mg/day.

Avatar f tn I have been dealing with an anxiety disorder for about 6 years now. I'm freaking out. It's my first time away from home and I can't describe my feelings in anyway. It first happened when I was on a bus ride home from work and I zoned out completely and my hands went numb and I felt I was having a heart attack. I them started to shake and new it was my anxiety.
Avatar f tn By the way, anxiety disorder is a common side effect of HCV. I developed both anxiety disorder, and mild depression from the virus, before I ever was aware that I had the virus. I also developed vertigo, which I never had prior to having HCV. I think that it is interesting to read Naomi Judd;s accounts of having HCV, and her anxiety disorders, agoraphobia, etc. that developed along with her HCV disease.
Avatar n tn If I am treated for anxiety, I am wondering if they will improve or if the physical symptoms will linger and if so for how long? Would love to here some experiences on this from the forum.

Avatar f tn Lyme again plus a different coinfection. Still dealing with that. So this is a long way of answering your question 'how long can one have Lyme before symptoms appear?' I think the answer is, 'quite a while.' How long is the course of treatment with doxy?

Avatar n tn My wife is a psychologist and she said it sounded like Generalized Anxiety Disorder. That sounded odd to me because these symptoms were occurring with and without any anxiety (and I would normally feel anxious anyway since I didn't know what the hell was wrong with me). Since then I have had more depression and anxiety (with no real cause, in cirumstances where I wouldn't normally be anxious), and when I do my ears feel full and I don't know which is causing which.
Avatar m tn Does he have auditory processing disorder or Irlen Syndrome. There is a long list of things for them to start working on. Do they use his interests to motivate him eg. first reading book and then 15 minutes on the computer (if that is something he has chosen that he likes to do). Does he struggle during playtime and dinnertime. Are there any dinnertime clubs he could go to. If he is verbal has anyone asked him 'why' he is getting under the table.
Avatar f tn Am I wrong to make him play? -- your question No. But, by your own words, "it's the same process every year". I feel that your son suffers from an anxiety "disorder" (probably social anxiety) which is different from being anxious or shy. Anxiety disorders affect the physical, emotional and mental aspects of a person and as thus, requires specialized help in learning how to "manage" one's fears/anxieties.
Avatar n tn WE HAVE TRIED MANY THINGS INCLUDING BRINGING NEW FOODS FOR HIM TON TRY IF HE WANTED TO IN FRONT OF THE COUNSELOR, RATING HIS ANXIETY AND HIS THOUGHTS ON HOW HE FELT IT WOULD TASTE AND HOW IT TASTED.

WE ARE WORRIED HE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH PROTEIN. HE WILL NOT EAT ANY MEAT EXCEPT CHICKEN NUGGETS, AND NOT HE IS BEGINNING TO GET TIRED OF THAT.
