Avatar f tn I was thinking how will I deal with general anasethia, how will I handle medication. I went nuts. I beged the doctor to do it on local anasethia and he refused. I am travelling to the US hoping that they will be able to handle my fears first. Now I am trapped, how will I reach the US, how will I make it. I am now worried about which flight to take, how, and searching for the shortest flight that could take me there.
Avatar m tn s and how often they happen or how long they last. What is the normal length of a PVC and can they happen several back to back and you still be in the safe zone? I sometimes get a flip flop feeling that lasts 5 to 10 secs in my chest and was told by someone else that PVC's are usually just a quick faint feeling with a skipped feeling in the beat as it kicks back in.
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?

237053 tn?1258828426 I was just curious how long the typical relapse lasts? Also how long are most remissions? The first time I had symptoms (relalpse) started in May of 07 and I didn't feel normal again until end of Sept/beg Oct. This seems extra long doesn't it? Then I was symptoms free for almost a year and a half. I'm really beginning to think I have a autoimmune disorder. I go in today to see my GP.. I'm going to request to see a Rhuem. Thanks!

He also reccommended that I keep taking my celexa 50mg once a day and to increase my xanax to 3 a day. I really don't knwo much about this disorder because I thought all my symptoms were leading to bi-polar. My doctor refuses to treat me for that and believes he is right about the diganosis. Any Opinions???

Avatar m tn However currently I seem to get shaky as the day goes on, some days are worse than others. How long is this going to last, is there preventative measures I can take?
