758077 tn?1282599161 I would have thought the anxiety would have gone by now. I know sleep will help, but I need to get rid of the anxiety first.
Avatar n tn -do not take magnesium supplements with calcium-- it interferes!
Avatar m tn The next day anxiety is worse because of the hangover, so you drink to get over that. But then if you want to quit, you also have terrible anxiety. After a few days sober, you are so anxious that drinking seems like the only solution, and so on. I think that making it past those first few vital days is really important. And I really think that guys like us will be able to do it, because we want to change so badly. St.
Avatar f tn They are serious conditions and I am curious to know if the majority of those that post on here are struggling with this at the moment and maybe have been for some time? Mental illness can present in many different forms and many are often inter linked. It is not a weakness, it does not make you inferior, crazy or whatever label other people put on it. It is a treatable condition, the first step is recongnising it for what it is.
Avatar m tn most over the counter medication such as galvescan,mylanta,maalox etc neutralise gas and reduce acid . as far as anxiety related,if you are under stress ,wont your heart beat faster ,if you retain too much water,that is a burden for your heart.not sure about gas??
Avatar n tn I was wondering if these symptoms are maybe caused by spasms in the muscles in my scalp tightening up and making me feel spaced out. You can buy some tablets for tension headaches over the counter. In England they are called Syndol but i am just trying ibuprofen at the minute. I was wondering if the spasms in the musles in the scalp are causing a type of migraine effect as i do feel more spaced out when i am in a shop with overhead strip lighting?
Avatar n tn My heart races, I feel afraid. I'm wondering, does anxiety and panic CAUSE the reflux, or does the reflux cause the anxiety? I am now on Paxil, reflux medication and Ativan. This is debilitating. Only a few moments ago I was on the couch with a wet towel on my head, on the phone with a friend telling her I felt like I was going to die. I felt it in my stomach, that extreme knotting, feeling as if I wanted to burp but couldn't. My heart racing.
Avatar f tn For the aches and pains you can take over the counter pain relief medications, but do make sure that you follow the directions on the packet on taking the medication safely. If you go for Ibuprofen, follow the directions on the packet and take the medication with or after food, as this medication can cause stomach bleeds, liver and kidney damage. Some people have an allergy to this drug. To help you to calm down, have warm relaxing baths with Epsom Salts with a little baby oil.
Avatar f tn My question is, does anyone of you suffering from anxiety feel constantly tired all of the time, feel like you are out of your body, like on drugs or living in a constant dream? I guess it's called depersonalization? But can it happen Constantly? I also have floaters, halos, white lights in my vision and doubled vision. Like, if I focus on an object, whatever other object is behind it or beside it is doubled. If you know what I mean? And when I sleep my body also vibrates.
Avatar f tn , and god forbid you try and stop taking the anti- depressants- they will surely send you over the edge with the anxiety sypmtoms... had I known all of this- I would have never ever taken a pill... There are lots of women out there like us....some of them drowning in there own fear.......I pray for them, us and me.... more research and studies need to be done to link this stuff to hormones- than just the brain waves and brain chemical studies they do............
Avatar m tn All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
Avatar f tn Anti d's are what Dr's use to treat anxiety in australia. They work really well in the treatment of anxiety as well. As far as if you have anxiety, I'm not sure but I'm glad your Dr is exploring the idea with you and still testing for other things as well. Sounds like you have a great Dr. The symptoms could be caused by stress, depression, anxiety, anything. I dont see why people see anti D's as powerful drugs speically when there are so many other med's that Dr's hand out so easy.
194555 tn?1264290523 taking over the counter medication for it without checking what it is - I have had that advice before, and it made me so upset. It felt like someone telling you to put a bandaid over a glass splinter rather than find out what's causing the pain and taking the splinter OUT. I recently developed allergies that were numerous and difficult to diagnose, and here is what I was told to do to help them figure out what was bothering me, if it helps.
Avatar n tn I have posted here before in the 'STI' section and the reason for my upset, I became very upset with worry about HIV for some time, had 3tests over 4months and have been told that I'm all clear and the GUM (I'm in the UK) are not concerned about me.
Avatar m tn You are also going to be bending over forward in the shower. The shower is not a good place to find out that bending over makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor. Slowly bend forward as far as you can comfortably bend, and look between your legs at the crotch. Slowly stand up erect.
Avatar f tn ) Anyhow, during withdrawal muscle relaxants, NSAID's (motrin, naproxen) and/or over the counter meds like highlands can be very effective. If this is not due to opiate withdrawal or any secondary causes (I can give you a list of some of the things that can agitate or cause rls like symptoms) then I can give you specific diagnostic criteria for RLS and at that point your friend really should look into some treatment options with a doctor.
Avatar n tn I have pernicious anemia. The itching would almost drive me crazy. PN is dangerous if left undiagnosed. You need a more intensive blood test than just the usual cbc. If you have it, you just need b-12 injections. No amount of pills will help. Just get this checked, as it will ultimately become deadly.
1895503 tn?1332376974 Taking regular medication of any kind, even over the counter meds, should be discussed with your doctor. Ibuprofen is usually avoided by those who have a history of stomach ulcers and acid reflux. I hope this helps to clarify a few things. I suggest discussing your concerns and symptoms with your doctor and psychiatrist as they are aware of your medical history. Anxiety and pain disturbs our peace and challenges even the most patient person. Make this a matter of prayer.
1884213 tn?1329407253 Here in the UK we do have specialists who deal with this and with the treatment, the results have been very good.
Avatar f tn like osteoporosis, it's a too high level of FT3/over medication. The ONLY thing TSH does is stimulate the thyroid to produce thyroid hormones; when the thyroid no longer responds, TSH is irrelevant. Okay, so with the FT3 range at 3.5-6.5 and your level at 5.0, you are exactly in the middle of the range. The problem is that with your FT4 below range, you don't have enough to convert.
Avatar f tn just wish that it doesnt happen. Hopefully all of us suffering with anxiety find the way to get over this.
Avatar n tn I just don't want to be sad all the time! The anxiety that I would experience, just over a dirty kitchen floor, was rediculous! >sigh< fat and depressed about weight, or just plain depressed?
Avatar n tn Threelac is an over-the counter product, basically a very powerful probiotic with three kinds of beneficial bacteria from what I understand. Both products I am looking into are OTC; I am not keen on prescribed medication unless it treats the cause instead of the symptoms.
Avatar n tn Really? MS? Come on now. Now, while I don't want to downplay your own afflictions (and I'm sorry you were diagnosed with MS, it's a horrible disease) - but considering there are QUITE A FEW posts of similiar nature, perhaps it's best to help provide more common/less severe possibilities as well as the "worst case scenarios?
Avatar m tn My Doctor also told me that maybe my Anxiety got higher and one of the solution is to get a Self Medication. I hope my advice will works. I'll update you guys.
Avatar n tn 5 vikes per day without much success. The worst part was the nights. I would wake up with the runs, horrible anxiety in the pit of my gut and to make it all worse, I experienced vivid and very disturbing nightmares. My MD has switched me to the 25 mcg fentanyl patch and 3 vikes for breakthrough pain (chronic osteoarthritis) Next month we'll reduce to two supplemental tabs, then one, etc. I don't feel great--no high--but the sleeping has improved dramatically.
975514 tn?1325001538 Wasn't until the Rhumetoligist ruled out MS, that I was told I had Fibromyalgia, roungly 10 years ago. The only releif I can suggest is stay active, the pain meds do nothing but mask over the discomfort. It you belong to a spa or the Y, go with water areobics. The movement gets the joints and tendons active and the warm water seems to ease the discomfort. Also, try deep breathing exercises and learn how to control your pain.
748543 tn?1463449675 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
211940 tn?1267884866 At the time it felt like it was the muscle or tendons, kind of like they had been strained or over used. The pain continued to increase with night time being the worst. Since then the pain is in my shoulder, collar bone, mid arm (between the shoulder and elbow), elbow and wrist. My elbow is now very sore after typing or writing if it's not well supported on a desk. Although it doesn't hurt to the touch.
Avatar m tn I've had chronic hives for years and have been on various prescription and over the the counter antihistamines with no effect on my hives. Five days ago I had my first injection (300) and it has had no effect on my hives. I'm paying $1400 out of pocket for the treatment and am debating whether to have another two injections. Thank you.
