Avatar f tn I've been diagnosed - by a psychiatrist - with Social Anxiety Disorder. I've been taking Lexapro for almost 2 months - started on 10 mg and the dosage was up to 20 mg two weeks ago. Also, for the last 3 months I've been speaking every week or two with a licensed professional counselor. My main problem is associating with people that are close to my age range, I'm 26.
Avatar m tn I've developed an anxiety disorder, from a big panic attack about a year ago on weed. I never had any anxiety before this and am starting counseling tomorrow at my school.

Avatar f tn I picked up on your post because you said the girls speaks and therefore it cannot be autism. Autism is a spectrum disorder. So it ranges from non-verbal to above average verbal communication as well as gifted children. It is more about how the brain is wired up. Her reaction to different environments could be due to changes in general which some people on the spectrum find very distressing. Does she behave like this in all environments outside of home?
494087 tn?1257793207 I was diagnosed with social anxiety and panic disorder a year ago. I take remeron and klonopin but the doctor says only to take them at night. I think I need some medication to get through the day but I am afraid to tell him I am having trouble getting through the day. I always have a butterfly feeling in my stomach and when I have to go in public I get very nervous and feel like everyone is looking at me. I guess my question is does anyone else feel this way and what should I do?

Avatar f tn I have the same problem as you. I'm 23 and my doctor just diagnosed me with Social Anxiety Disorder, tho I'm pretty sure I have had this problem for most of my life. I dropped out of school, and I haven't had a real job and I don't drive much all because of my anxiety. I don't really know what the solution is but what I am trying to do is conquer my fear and anxiety by going out and facing it.

Avatar f tn m no doctor but you may have some traits of Paranoid Personality Disorder. The lack of trust you have in people, even people you know is a possible indicator of the disorder.

Avatar n tn Whether you have generalized anxiety or social anxiety or garden variety anxiety can only be diagnosed by a doctor.........and at the young age of 13, (even tho it's obvious you are mature for your age) your hormones are kicking into high gear and that can sometimes bring on anxiety. I would urge you to talk to your parents about these feelings and I believe a talk with your doctor is in order. You do not have to feel this way.

Avatar n tn Sounds like social anxiety - a disorder that is very common and highly treatable. One question - do you not like to speak to people because you are rude or don't like them, or is it because it is difficult to talk because you don't know what to say. The second option is a clue that social anxiety might be the issue. Please see your family doctor for help.....

Avatar m tn But drinking past a little brings on that disorientation for everyone, and for people who suffer anxiety attacks that feels like an anxiety symptom, which can bring on anxiety. I say if it feel okay do it, if it doesn't, don't, but don't drink to being drunk because, first, then you'll be a ta level where it might interact adversely with medication, and second, it'll bring on the very symptoms you take the medication to avoid.
