Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety disorder examples


Avatar n tn The Essence of Anxiety Disorder: Panic Attack is usually followed by Generalized Anxiety Disorder, but the latter would also appear without the former. Those who suffer from it would also be haunted by Social Phobia and OCD. According to my experience in counseling, I can say, such panic, anxiety or “fear” is a sort of energy, since it is a sort of energy, it exists and disappears fully according to Energy Conservation Law. It cannot be wiped out and exterminated at pleasure.
Avatar n tn Believe it or not, the parts of your answer which I copied and pasted above, are all examples of behaviour of children suffering from anxiety. I don't think this child is suffering from an anxiety "disorder", but I do think it is highly possible that this child is suffering from extreme stress resulting in the behaviours which you are seeing.
Avatar f tn Something else I wished I would have done is to write down some examples of situations where I felt I might have some problems. Something like maybe a journal, where you can really express what you are feeling and why(if there is a why:) ) I'm 26 now with 2 children and one thing I truly regret is being to afraid to ask for help sooner! But now that I've started the process, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Social phobia and fear of public speaking Social phobia, also called social anxiety disorder, is fear of social situations where you may be embarrassed or judged. If you have social phobia you may be excessively self-conscious and afraid of humiliating yourself in front of others. Your anxiety over how you will look and what others will think may lead you to avoid certain social situations you’d otherwise enjoy. Fear of public speaking, an extremely common phobia, is a type of social phobia.
Avatar f tn Many people do not react this way, so I know it is the panic/anxiety disorder I have to watch out for when undergoing medical procedure or difficult social events. Best.
Avatar f tn My son is 10. When he was five he was diagnosed with a non specific mood disorder. We had a lot of therapy and have had no medication. He is not officially diagnosed with ADHD but I know that he has this as well as a Sensory Integration disorder for which we went to occupational therapy for a brief time. He holds himself together at school and completely falls apart when he gets home. Because of this, several doctors think he is fine and has no real issues.
Avatar m tn have u ever gone to counseling for severe anxiety disorder?sound like u got alcohol problem along with chronic anxiety/worry!
Avatar f tn She is PDD-NOS, Sensory Processing Disorder, ASD, Anxiety Disorder, and Mood Disorder. argh! She is now on a low dose of celexa for anxiety and risperdone for anger/aggression. Please, anyone reading this OuDO NOT SEND ANY POSTS ABOUT THE DANGERS OF MEDICATING YOUNGER CHILDREN. The decision is not an easy one and nobody wants to put their kids on meds. The truth is, OT, counseling, play therapy, etc..therapies do not always work or even help much.
Avatar m tn I'm now 3 years suffering Morbid Post Traumatic stress with generalised anxiety disorder (say that with a mouth full of crackers) and am basically at the point of suicide came close last night only my girlfriend called me ah no I think I'm lying I would of chickened out but my mind is certainly gone that way I basically haven't slept in a few years and eating, driving, sleeping and even relaxing sets me off into an anxiety attack anything that leaves me with my thoughts too long or requires me
Avatar m tn (a) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), (b) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or conduct disorder, but it is difficult to disentangle those features from those of BPD. I certainly exhibited episodes of hyperactivity-impulsivity or just impulsivity, but I cannot find any detailed information about these early years since everyone who knew me then is now dead or not contactable. 2.7.1.
Avatar m tn anxiety state or (d) depressive disorder. I know nothing of the mental health of my mother’s parents or grandparents and so am unable to draw on what could be a useful knowledge base to explain the origins of my BPD. 1.3.
Avatar m tn 1 After all these years, my interest in fine-tuning my understanding, in enlarging my scientific knowledge of this disorder, is of a low order on my general scale of interests inspite, as I say, of any appearance to the contrary--as the evidence of writing this lengthy essay might indicate.
Avatar n tn discomfort in neck/throat is often an initial symptom as can be psychiatric presentation like anxiety. I took anti-anxiety meds for 10 years before being properly diagnosed. The run down feeling and sinus infections are also consistent with the progression of this disease. Often docs will just run a TSH test to check thyroid function, but the antibody testing (TPO) is extremely important.
Avatar m tn I've read that smoking raises blood pressure and therefore exacerbates anxiety/stress, so it's a no-brainer that the social-smoking needs to stop. I also read that it's a good idea to cut out caffeine (no more Diet Mt. Dew *cry *throwfit *repeat). So if you are reading this looking for how to stop anxiety and panic attacks after a night of drinking, the simple answer is to STOP drinking.
Avatar m tn to put the story on paper and, in part, to put the narrative to bed given the fact that, for the most part, it is so difficult to express in the social domain. It is well-known that people with BPD are disinclined to talk about their problem in public. Such a situation has the disadvantage that people have little idea of the battles faced by sufferers of BPD.
Avatar m tn we don't pay for the healt services and all the tests SO that's why it's difficult to have tests RX from a DOC, especially when you have an anxiety disorder, cause they will say it's only anxiety and that the tests for the heart and bloodwork cost a lot to the governement... Yeah, I will be more aggressive with the Cardiologist... I think that if I Can't reach him today ( like I try to do in the last 3 weeks), I will ask my Family Doc to have a reference paper to another Cardiologist!!!
Avatar n tn Our child displayed many of the behaviours you have indicated. She was diagnosed with a severe social anxiety disorder at six years of age. Five years later, she is doing fine. I wish you the best.
Avatar m tn Hi Leaf, Best I can ascertain, your question is two-fold. In answer to the former, the two medications you named are prescribed more often for muscle spasm/tension. However, in certain cases, they are also prescribed for varying categories of anxiety, and in some cases, even agoraphobia/social anxiety. Regarding the current gold standard treatment for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), psychiatrists are more apt to prescribe an antidepressant.
Avatar n tn This sounds like generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder. Talk to your doc about SSRI's or SNRI's, like prozac, paxil, zoloft, effexor, lexapro, etc. They help tremendously. If you try one, and after a month don't feel better, you can try a different one, or a stronger dose. They all have similar mechanisms, but each is just different enough, that some will work better for some people depending on brain chemistry.
Avatar f tn Hello there! I'm glad you found us! You'll find a lot of help and info here, along with support! OCD is "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder", an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts and worries, along with compulsions (actions) that people engage in to decrease their anxiety. An example would be someone with a phobia/fear of germs who engages in the compulsion of near constant handwashing. OCD can vary in severity.
Avatar n tn Yes, you are correct about social phobia presenting itself in only certain situations, selective mutism, of course presents only in specific settings i.e. school. Thank you!
Avatar m tn He/she is a medical doctor who can properly assess and diagnose you. If it is determined that you have an anxiety disorder (IE GAD, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, etc), then he/she can discuss treatment options with you, which could include meds and/or therapy. In the meantime, definitely keep up with the psychologist.
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?
1611808 tn?1299558422 There are a number of anxiety conditions that respond well to specialist intervention. These include panic disorder, where a person gets acute symptoms (often the person feels they are having a heart attack because of the severity of the physical symptoms). Panic DisorderThe person experiences episodes of intense panic. These episodes are unpredictable, start abruptly, and usually last a few minutes.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, I am on a couple anxiety meds I have struggled with panic disorder/ and social anxirty my whole life. I am on zoloft and klonopin 1mg twice a day My anxiety disorder is really regulated and i know live a very stable life My doc and I fel the zoloft has done the most for me and I dont plan on staying on Klon.
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.
Avatar n tn - yes Is this something outside of separation anxiety?
Avatar m tn Our child suffered from severe anxiety and when she began to interact with her peers (at about age 7), her social skills were non-existent. So, an art therapist was hired to "coach" her on social behaviours. This person taught her skills prior to lunch and/or recess and then observed while she practised these skills in the school yard. After the break, the art therapist debriefed her on both the good and the wrong.
