Avatar n tn I have not suffered from any withdrawal symptoms. My anxiety symptoms and associated depression which led me to take Zoloft in the first place persist and have increased in intensity on some episodes. Zoloft definitely helped me with these symptoms but never completely rid me of them. I am now considering Paxil since it appears to be more directed to social anxiety disorder which is definitely my core problem.
Avatar n tn I am now dry after 30 years dry but suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder and well as Depression and Anxiety. To stay sane I have to take medication twice daily.
Avatar f tn I'm bipolar, I think my mom may be to but she's never even seen a doctor to find out. My dad has social anxiety disorder, and my grandma (his mom) was in and out of mental hospitals. My dad is the youngest of 9 but most of his siblings are on some form of mood stabilizer. Mental illnesses can definitely be genetic but it's not guaranteed to pass. Oh and I can tell you first hand, medication only works if you take it the right way everyday.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm really hoping I can hear from a medical doctor or anyone with insight on this question. My daughter is turning 7 in March. While she exhibits many "typical" behaviours, she has several behaviours that I am concerned about. Since she was 4, we noticed repetivive hand movements. She wriggles her fingers, about shoulder length at various times in the day.
1263071 tn?1270297845 Very unfortunately for many of us with neuro symptoms and signs, yours is a common experience. I can't count the times I've had the stuffing knocked out of me by a stupid doctor and, yes, I certainly weighed and considered the possibility that they might just be right. I think we all do at times. But the science is on our side. Not theirs. Do you know that most doctors can't explain how 'conversion disorder' actually works?

Avatar n tn and small boned so I was unhappy about that but Lexapro really helped me with my anxiety and even social phobias! I have recently decided to taper off the drug...ever so slowly. It has been 10 days since I have been completely off and I have many withdrawal symptoms: 1) when I turn my head I get a strange feeling in my head and eyes.
1216899 tn?1288573925 However, I've heard that vitamin D can definitely have a positive impact on mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. Hey, if after only 3 weeks your symptoms are reduced 10-15% it sounds as if you might get a lot better as your D levels rise.

Avatar m tn Telling my partner of two years (who has never showed any signs or symptoms of this) that I have this, and probably have for a long time, and she needs to get testing done, because somewhere a long the way I'e surely passed it on to her, while I was also showing no symptoms. Yay life! no more questions, safe to say.
Avatar f tn and emotional and behavioral include irritability. Signs and symptoms such as noise sensitivity, problems with concentration and memory, irritability, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and poor judgment may be called 'late symptoms' as they appear days or weeks after injury. The prognosis is generally excellent, with total resolution of symptoms within a few days to several weeks or until six months. It is only in a small minority of people, that the symptoms may persist for years or be permanent.
Avatar n tn Having once worked as a nurse's aide in a neurological unit of a hospital, I thought I knew about the characteristic signs and symptoms of multiple sclerosis. In my own mind, I had ruled out the possibility long before. My new gynecologist's comments caused me to do some reading, however, and I very soon felt as if my own personal world had completely stopped turning.
Avatar n tn See a good psychologist or clinical social worker and talk through your current issues and childhood, etc. A lot of the symptoms you are describing are very common among people suffering from depression and/or anxiety. We try to find "external" cures by blaming it on our bodies, but so often the problem is really psychological. That doesn't mean it's not real -- it just means you have to attack it a different way to cure it. Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn I live at home, and discussed this with my father who says I'm just spiraling out of control, and the depression and anxiety is making my symptoms (most likely) worse. I read on the net that MRI is a great tool for evaluating muscle tissue inflammation, and is often used by neuros to decide what regions to peform a muscle biospy on (if they feel it's warranted).
Avatar m tn But I have been diagnosed with A social anxiety disorder. I get really nervous and closterphobic (sp) around big groups. Or even something as simple as running to the store triggers it. It's just something I live with daily. So I kinda know what u mean. It's no fun.
Avatar n tn I was agoraphobic at one point (before I accepted it as anxiety disorder), but still have social anxiety, and I am a hypocodriac with EXTREME health anxiety focused mainly on my heart. Reading others lists has reassured me that it is just anxiety. Thanks to all for sharing!

Avatar n tn Now I have stopped, it has a week since I last took my last vicodin. Anxiety and insomnia kicked in right away. It got better about the fifth day but I had an anxiety and nervousness attack on my seventh day. Is this normal, will this go away or will the anxiety always peak in. Is this my body telling me it needs the drugs.
Avatar m tn At this moment I am trialling some treatment options that I believe may help treat some of the underlying physical causes of anxiety / stress / insomnia / chronic fatigue symptoms and sensations in myself and in a certain percentage of sufferers worldwide. My hypothesis supposes that the root cause of some anxiety symptoms is an imbalance in the overall nervous system operation.
Avatar n tn Try doing some outdoor walking and jogging and compare if you have the same flu like symptoms in Gym and outside. If you only have them in the gym then you are allergic to something, you have to find that out and prevent it. Take care!
