Avatar f tn Basically, he said that if you are suffering from a mental illness - like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, et al - that the symptoms will manifest in your body. He is a scientist and so believes that there is a reason for everything. There is a reason you are suffering so much grief and cannot let it go.

Avatar f tn The pill however has stolen my sex drive, where as on the implant i had a great sex drive but very bad depression.

Avatar n tn I have read of monthly hormone cycles in women effecting brain chemistry and causing depression symptoms to cycle in sync. but nothing for a male that I know of as yet. My friend says that the symptoms of his depression though remain fairly constant ie unenthusiastic, tired etc. He has been prescribed Lovan with no change in his symptoms yet after only 2 months. I have heard that hormone cycles of women living under the same roof can synchronise.

I have to play it off like everything is fine but im usually on the verge of throwing up.

5121963 tn?1363908857 This is not my 1st surgery--I actually had two more. One back in 2009. The second one was in 2010 I believe my last one was in 2011 and my endo specialist said that he can't go any farther because there's way to much endometriosis on my organs. He got out as much as he could though. I have tried many different birth control pills (I believe about 8 different types) and none has helped.

Avatar n tn A parent with TD or a parent who has the gene for TS has a 50/50 chance, with each pregnancy, to pass the gene on. Tourette’s particular gene does not manifest its symptoms in everyone. In other words, if a parent passes the gene on to a child, the child may not have any symptoms of the disorder. If a daughter inherits the gene, there is a 70 percent chance that she will have at least one of the signs of TS.
Avatar f tn Did you feel any symptoms that would indicate depression before you experienced the somatic symptoms. Depression can, indeed, manifest as somatic symptoms, if severe enough.

However, the main concern that has to be primarily addressed at the moment is your depression, especially since you attempted suicide.

You are in the window of time where most women experience "baby blues". Have you had your first post partum check with your doc? He or she will ask you specifically how you are doing emotionally. Exhaustion, moodiness, inability to concentrate are all common in early motherhood.
