Avatar f tn I went to a Muscul/Skeletal center, there I was diagnosed with reheumatoid arthritis, He also did other test and said I tested positive for Lupus , but because of the lack of other systems he didn't think I had that , also mild back flow of left heart valve. Treatment was a shot of cortisone in each hip and priscribed Meloxicam 1 day for 6 weeks this all helped a great deal.
Avatar n tn When I was first diagnosed with Hep C four years ago, I went into a depression. Four months into the treatment, the depression got real bad and I became hopeless. I thought I would always feel the way I was feeling. About two months into the tx, I noticed a pattern where I felt like I was coming out of a fog (like when you clear a bad fever) a couple of days after the injection.
901137 tn?1267629789 I have treatment resistant moderate depression. (My doctor characterizes it as "moderate" as I am able to function on a daily basis. While saying this he acknowledges that it doesn't feel moderate to me) I tend to keep the hurt to myself. I was wondering if there are others who are experiencing the same situation.
Avatar f tn I don't know why the doctors would be refusing Hepatitis C treatment for people with Depression. Interferon can cause Depression but you won't be using Interferon. There are Interferon free treatments available. Even with Interferon treatments, the doctors treated people with Depression unless they were very unstable or suicidal. I have a long history of Depression and I treated in 2011-2012 for 48 weeks with Interferon, Ribavirin, and Incivek. I did fine.
Avatar f tn My doctor says from 1-22. I am at a 6. Very mild liver damage, so I really don't need to rush treatment. I will see him again in 6 months for testing. He says that at that time they may have some better treatment that are not as bruptly as the ones now. Also, the may not be as pricey. I feel blessed.
Avatar n tn We know so little about each other and yet we share so much of ourselves here. I was just interested, if anyone is will to share, about what brought you to treatment. How long did you know you had hep c before deciding to treat. How did you make the decission, was it a hard one to make. Your biggest fears before hand, durning and after (if you have gotten that far). I'll start I am 48 known I have hep c for over 20 years. I ignored it for a long time because I had no effects from it.
Avatar n tn , who told me that i could have liver problems with no symptoms, but that because i have major depression,there is no treatment available so he won't bother with a liver biopsy. i wonder if this is common, i would kind of like to know if i have cirrosis but he said there is no treatment, so why bother with the biopsy, and to come back in a couple of years, maybe there will be. i feel like a time bomb now!
Avatar m tn absolutely no energy, poor appetite, and too exhausted to cook pale stools depression/anxiety about treatment of Inter-FEron regiments....DR. says if I can hold on there are drugs coming thru for FDA approval, with high success rate, unlike inter-feron .....Problem is I can not work, dont qualify for disability because I am a IN home Support /Care Giver for my wife , who just had liver transx..16 mos ago.... If i start treatment of IFRON, Dr. says I will feel 100% worse..
924817 tn?1244038009 There are those who continue to fight the depression for some time after treatment, I felt I got off lucky by being able to get off the AD's at 4 months post end of treatment. Hang in there and ride it out.
Avatar n tn I fear that it reinforces the problem when actually his symptoms are mild and maybe he is just who he is. Is therapy recommended for all diagnosed children with aspergers and it the goal of treatment to be proactive for problems down the road. Could it be that he is just a child with aspergers who will make it in this world without intervention? At the same time I do not want to ignore the issue and have something serious happen.
1703840 tn?1307441527 You certainly need a good specialist to rule out all the issues. I had a mild Traumatic Brain Injury 2 years go and still suffering with lot of symptoms (after going through many many specialist in my case). For me each one call what they think it is - Post Concussion Syndrome, Meniere's syndrome, Post Traumatic vision syndrome, Depression, Anxiety etc., and still no one can help to relieve my symptoms. (headaches, dizziness, fatigue etc.
Avatar f tn Not even that one political thread and I really had things I wanted to say to that.....lol I've not been doing well. I made it all the way through treatment with no depression and no meds other than the ones to deal with the wild mood swings. And now that I've done treatment, I've sunk into this deep dark depression. I've been quietly trying to battle it and I'm not doing well. It's completely irrational. It isn't because I got pulled off treatment early, that's not what I'm focused on.
Avatar n tn Hi, I think that I've suffered with depression since I was 12 years old. My symptoms tend to not only manifest themselves in the way I percieve myself but also physically. I spent many years pretending that not being able to sleep at night and sleeping the day away was normal; at times I suffer from sever back pain, headaches, upset stomaches and fatigue. I was wondering wether or not this is a hyreditary condition that I am suffering from.
786881 tn?1236560228 I'm noticing more pain in my knees again, and this is the first time that I can say that I might being experiencing depression as well, though it's a very different type of depression than I was expecting. I am due to go back to my new Dr and do labs with her and a pap exam in a month and a half. I should probably go ahead and go back earlier for the blood work since from the sound of it, this really is the depression people speak about being associated with Hashimoto's.
885961 tn?1249583403 I was reading in another forum about depression and stress and anxiety attacks because I was looking for something to tell me that either I am normal or that I am not alone in this and noticed many people posted things that are similar to what I have been going through. Just recently in the last couple months I started experiencing Anxiety and OCD again, mild but its still there never the less. I experienced anxiety and OCD when I was a teenager about 15 years old and had an abortion.
Avatar n tn My depression hasnt gotten better with treatment and I am starting to worry it will never improve, I just am tired of feeling horrible every day and hating myself for being this way. I really really really dont want to take antidepressants, I dont want to even have to consider taking them and probably would never do so. Maybe my depression/brain fog is not thyroid related? I dont understand what else I have to do, my mental state has not improved at all, ive just sort of lost hope.
209591 tn?1267418314 I see that can be quite common, for the dormant symptoms to become visible after use of antibiotics. My symptoms first symptoms last January was numbness and tingling in extremities; as well as severe fatigue and headaches. During my first visit with my PCP I was unable to distinguish between two different objects on my right side with my eyes closed (one sharp and one dull).
Avatar m tn Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has been diagnosed or not.
Avatar n tn You mentioned you have some experience with depression and I assume anti-depressants . They will probably play an important role in your treatment. The meds most of us are on disrupt production of seratonin and it becomes quite easy to loose your sense of well being while in tx. Its possible if not probable that you will develope anemia from the Ribavirin and if not dealt with swiftly it will make this already difficult task much worse.
Avatar n tn When I started treatment they warned me of the side effects, flu like symptoms, depression, headaches and all that good stuff, but the treatment wasn't too bad, they started me on an anti-depressant and medication for my headaches. But for the last yr or more I have been having the flu like symptoms, major body aches mostly in my upper torso, back problems and I have had every test imaginable done to figure out why I am in so much pain everyday. Some days are better than others.
Avatar f tn I don't think the medical community really knows the full implications of this 'mild' imbalance. I'm not sure they understand all of the symptoms and consequent impacts on quality of life for those living with it...they are relying on hard and fast numbers or certain symptoms as a mandatory threshold for action. MD Anderson Houston, where I've gone for treatment, has said they are in an ongoing debate and discussion about how to deal with those of us who fall into the 'mild' category.

16321 tn?1213294807 senequan was a good hypnotic but it came with a street value my depression was lifted for years to come. ellaville + trillathon was a mild combination but did not do much for my symptoms. cogentin made everything blurry the optomitrist made me stop it. haldol the tartive dysconeisia has stopped progressing after the first five years my speech has not been noticably effected and I am still taking it. prolixin it is similar to haldol but my tongue swelled real bad and I choked on it.
Avatar f tn You wondered how the post friends were doing and I say 2 thumbs up. Still have mild cirrhosis so that's a drag (no symptoms) but this is life and nothing is ever perfect. It's kinda a shock when treatment ends, as you kinda feel like a sitting duck. Think it's human nature to feel that when the virus is gone life is now Rosey. ( Close but not quite ) So, take it easy, still drink those fluids, and enjoy your new life. ..
10624661 tn?1414904229 I have had 4 treatments, the jerking was mild before the treatments but has gotten more intense. I can walk around the house and out the driveway and back even though my back is still broken I am awaiting news from spine surgeon as to a date for surgery to repair hardware. My mobility is getting worse because its harder to get up and down and move a lot due to all the pain. I take another treatment this upcoming week. Thanks for sharing.

1659785 tn?1302522375 If testosterone is not found in sufficient quantities, it can affect libido, increase depression, cause erectile dysfunction, and an overall decreased life quality along with lack of concentration in different activities. Testosterone hormone declines normally with age and the deficiency needs a balance with proper supplementation.
