Unlike propranolol, valerian had no effect on physiologic arousal but significantly decreased subjective feelings of somatic arousal.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.

I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.

Your pain may increase for a bit and then settle down. About a week. It's great you're working with the doctor on this. Message me anytime.

Avatar m tn You might just need to find the right medication that works the best for you so you aren't so anxious and stressed out. I have anxiety pretty bad and was put on Effexor XR and I am doing pretty well dealing with stress and the anxiety. I would go back to your doctor and tell him your symptoms again and try a different medication that would better suit your specific symptoms and issues.
Avatar f tn I am 18 years old and have been positivity diagnosed with POTS after a positive tilt table test.I am taking 80 mg Propranolol and 0.1 Fludrocortisone along with increased water and salt intake to treat my condition,which somewhat helps.But I also suffer from depersonalization and chronic fatigue .Is this a familiar experience for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome ?
Avatar f tn GP put me on citalopram which I went along w/ just to be cooperative, and propranolol to help regulate what he viewed as anxiety-induced tachy. Did not seem to find it significant that symptoms did not occur during periods of actual mental anxiety. Said it might be pheochromocytoma, but that he wouldn't bother testing as that's so rare. Ashamed to say I didn't and still haven't actually demanded said testing.
Avatar m tn It started when I was about 16 years old properly, but I think things triggered it off from when I was younger when I used to get home sick when I was away from home etc. It comes and goes and gets really bad when I have an event planned. I have got out of so many events because my anxiety has been so bad.
2034625 tn?1392646892 I have a suggestion to help with your muscle spasms. Valerian essential oil is very effective at quickly stopping muscle cramps and pinched nerve type feelings. Unfortunately, it really stinks! If you get desperate enough to put up with the smell, you can use it mixed with a light carrier oil, like grapeseed, to massage into the effected area.
Avatar f tn i am currently on low dose propranolol as needed. Metoprolol didn't work for me and made things worse. My cardiologist said i could try a new beta blocker called nebivolol(bystolic) however reviews online were not too good and in fact some said caused additional symptoms that never went and away so i havr not yet tried the nebivolol. The propranolol does seem to work for me for thr most part but gets no wherr near curing them or allowing me to work out.
740283 tn?1232368252 He diagnosed me with migraines and placed me on Propranolol and Midrin. The two together had a bad effect on me, so now I'm simply taking the Midrin... but I was having to take like two or three a day and the headaches still weren't going away. The Midrin only sort of blanketed the pain for a while until it wore off and the headaches came right back. I noted that some of my pain and pressure might be sinus congestion and the Doctor then put me on MucinexD along with the Midrin.
Avatar n tn I know it doesn't help to just hear that. You can also try Valerian root from a GNC store. It's a herbal remedy and has mixed results...but it may help you. Your brain is just adjusting, and even at 15mg a day, it will take a little time. I'd say the worst of the anxiety will go away in a week or so. It also helps to keep busy...try and take your mind off of things. If you're like me though..I just sit and think of how bad it is..and it just builds from there.
6430402 tn?1381232875 Anxiety can cause dizziness and dizziness can cause anxiety. What kind of test did the Dr give you that said you have a sinus infection? Sorry about all of the questions but the more we know the better we can help.
1285653 tn?1288362229 I'm on Valium for unsteadiness and Compazine for nausea. Nothing really works for my headaches, I just take Tylenol and cross my fingers. My dr recently prescribed Acetazolamide but I have not started it yet. This medicine reduces your CSF so I'm very curious to try it.
Avatar m tn Personally if i had a second chance i would take the herbal medication route, Valerian, Passion flower, L-Theanine are a fantastic combination to take for anxiety and WILL make a difference and wont be as addicitve or addicitve as chemical drugs but for loads have the same effect. This will ease your mind as regards to addiction. Also once you get your insurance sorted get into therapy....
494087 tn?1257796807 I'm 17 and I've been suffering with panic and anxiety since I was 12 and I also take Klonopin and it really saved my life. I take it in the morning with propranolol which is used to slow my heart rate down. I also take Cymbalta for my anxiety long term and after trying about 7 diffrent kinds this one worked the best.
Avatar m tn Last May, after a weekend of beer pong and partying, I woke up on the following Monday and instantly felt dizzy and out of breath, like I was going to pass out or fall over. I didn't know what it was. I thought maybe I had hit my head during the previous weekend's festivities. A couple days later I still had a dizzy feeling so I had my ladyfriend drive me to the ER for fear of having post-concussion syndrome or something. They gave me something for my nerves (Loreazapam maybe?
363682 tn?1299492962 They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours. Pain relief medication does nothing and the only relief I can get at all is the application of something topical like '4-Head' or the American 'Head-On'. Although I have been a reasonably 'active' drinker in the past, if anything now, at the age of 61 (male), I rarely have more than two drinks at a time ... which is why I'm surprised at the onset of these headaches.
Avatar m tn seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark. So far, the doctors haven't been able to diagnose us, and perhaps that means it is simply some idiopathic phenomenon.
