574118 tn?1305138884 the scariest presentation i have experienced is a "mixed episode". like being manic with extreme dysphoria and depression at the same time. i'd rather be straight manic or depressed- my mood becomes totally unpredictable, and i have little control over my impulses. this is the type of thing that would keep me from showing up to work. i just got pulled off AD's because the steroid injections 4 days ago are jacking me up something fierce.
589461 tn?1286436465 hi all have been diagnosed with clinical depression for about 12 years but now doctors are concerned that i may have bipolar as i also have manic phases so are referring me to a psychiatrist for an assessment, i was just wondering if anyone else has been referred and what happens as i am a bit of a worrier if i don't know what to expect, i live in the uk so my gp cannot deal with this which is why i am being referred as this is the norm in this country.
755952 tn?1240099060 , which last thursday was confirmed to be manic depression, considering the addition of elated hypomanic states I have been having. At this very moment i am on my way up to a high (see my tracker) and have several feelings I still am not sure about. firstly I have this feeling people are not talking to me on IM, secondly, my senses seem to have increased greatly - the lightbulbs appear to flicker, orange juice feels like a taste explosion, and i everything has a fantastic tactile feel.
Avatar m tn Although he does not drink excessively in public, I know he is not a recovering alcoholic. I also know he suffers from depression and has lots of medication. Over the years he has tried to take his own live, usually via an overdose. Just last year alone (2010) he has made several attempts to end his own life.
Avatar n tn Yes but the NHS is **** we must remember this, hopefully our friend here is american and wont have that problem :)
Avatar m tn Oh, I almost forgot, a very important thing to take for anxiety and blood sugar is L-Glycine. This is most important for neuro-transmitters, and it helps anxiety, manic-depression, and also helps keep the muscle tissues healthy by enabling them to obtain more oxygen. Also, believe it or not, you probably need a good digestive aid, this will help assimilate what you eat and what you take supplement-wise.
Avatar f tn If you have made it to 20 with Aspergers, OCD, periodical Anorexia/Bulimia and now seem to have acquired Manic depression along the way, (which is why you looked up the labels) do not have money, societal importance or parental support and didn't make it through university as symptoms were exasperated by Glandular fever.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I've had severe depression for about 8months now and have been on medication and counselling etc, and i thought things were getting better as i seemed to get these happy episodes, but now theyve become severe episodes where i feel such overwhelming excitment and happiness.... all i want to do is jump up and down and scream and sing and talk to anyone who is there, and if no one is there i will talk to myself.

653999 tn?1225020086 The problem is this, the doctor says it's not BP because apparently my mood swings are too close together, and in her own words she says 'The symptoms suggest mostly cronic depression but you're also having these emotional highs...' what more does she need?? Ugh! So she's signed me off work for another two weeks, because I'm not really to be trusted behind the wheel of my car ever since I started driving with my eyes closed during manic episodes..
731160 tn?1297275908 Hi, this is my first time on Medhelp. I have struggled with Manic Depression for 7+ years now, doing OK but you know our ups and downs. What do you think is the best thing for insomnia? I have switch to Lithium a month ago (from Valproic Acid) and still am cycling but not as bad. Look forward to discussion within this group.
366811 tn?1217426272 I have spoken with you both, and recently and, B. There is some cross-over in your symptoms. Each of you knows what the other is talking about! And that suggests to me that you guys may have a lot to say to one another -which I hope you shall do! So....lemme ask you, Beth -how are we doing? Finding some comfort and support? Maybe some new ideas or things to think about?
Avatar n tn i have been taking effexor since May of 2003 and since then i have gained 90-95 lbs. Diet and exercise do not work for me especially because i had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia one year prior to taking effexor. Right now i'm on 150mg. Tomorrow i plan to talk to my doctor about being taken off of all my medication. I've read that effexor helped deal with depression even though they had gained weight, but its just the opposite for me.
975514 tn?1325001538 Some of you may have a diagnosis from your doctor, some of you may be seeking an answer for undiagnosed symptoms and some of you may be a relative or friend of one who is suffering. This is a great place to learn more and to gain support from others who suffer as well. In addition to the community here, MedHelp also offers tools to help you and your doctor in your road to wellness. Fibromyalgia and CFS can be so intricate and can have so many different symptoms.
544292 tn?1268886268 Severity of withdrawal can be estimated by considering that each 100 mg tramadol oral (hx daily use) will be roughly equivalent of 10 mg morphine (IV daily use) in severity of withdrawal symptoms. Differences are that standard opiate withdrawal seems to cause more physical illness (vomitting, diarhea, bone pain etc.) Tramadol withdrawall seems to cause significantly more anxiety and emotional distress.
Avatar n tn So everytime I got it I would treat with OTC. They went on until I had it removed. I started suffering with depression, irritability and complete exhaustion. My hair also started falling out and I was having memory loss. I can compare the memory loss with the type you suffer during pregnancy. The one who took the brunt of my mood change was my 8 year old. I was unable to cope with him being 8 and acting they way he did. I swear I think I really could have beaten him, I wanted to.
Avatar n tn I'm feeling alright, somewhat- but the symptoms are there, the not sleeping is the hard part along with the leg-cramping and the usual bag of unpleasantries. Can anyone give me any time- frames as to how long this will last? Hopefully not for months on end! I have a feeling I went about this the right way, rapid detox seems like your just setting yourself up for a nasty fall. I got on methadone when I was 19 yrs. old, I'm 26 and just want to reclaim my life back, go to NA- stay sober!

Avatar n tn Have been drinking lots of fruit and veg drinks, taking vitamins and trying to be healthy but to no avail. The symptoms I have are like flu symptoms, but it's been 2 weeks now. Reading through the other threads this seems like a long time as a few people mention that after 1 week they feel better. What do you all think? Is it normal to take so long to feel better from taking such a low dosage in the first place? Any replies gratefully received. Take care all.
Avatar n tn I am having more and more symptoms everyday. I called the doctor and they sat me up for an appointment way in September. I guess they wanna make sure I don't see no period at all for the whole month of August and the beginning of September. I already know I'm not gonna see anything cause I don't have any feeling at all in my body that a period is even trying to come. I guess we all just have to take it one day at a time, cause at this point, I guess that only time will tell.
Avatar f tn I've since read up on SPS's and the symptoms are only vaguely similar and seeing as all three of us have the exact same symptoms I doubt it is a simple partial seizure. The symptoms are much to specific to simply be pushed into some vaguely similar preexisting disorder.
Avatar f tn Pharmacologic intervention may improve or eliminate your symptoms, if your symptoms resulted from dental surgical procedures. Possible useful medications include, but not limited to, anticonvulsants,such as gabapentin,lyric, antidepressants, such as,amitryptyline, duolexitin, and many others.
