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. You think there's a chance I can recover from this without any medication? I have been getting lots of head shaking/nervousness/edgyness in social situations. Thanks.
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.
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?

10912630 tn?1413770190 My mother had severe social anxiety and severe major depressive disorder along with many other health problems. When she corrected her low stomach acid (which was preventing nutrients needed to make neurotransmitters such as serotonin) she finally started to improve.
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 n tn I have never taken either of them but from what I have heard and read it seems to be a good combination for pretty much all of your physical and mental problems. Someone with experience on these medicines will be able to help more and if you check back often you will find some good information but it is slow on the weekends.
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 I received my first diagnosis back in 2007 of social anxiety disorder and was later diagnosed with generalized and OCD obsessional type. Throughout this time I also received the diagnosis of major depressive disorder. The most distressing of these, however, were the anxiety disorders. My anxiety used to manifest itself primarily as bodily symptoms - constant heart palpitations, feelings of impending doom. I would experience these things from the minute I woke up til I went to sleep.

Avatar n tn Yes, GAD is General Anxiety Disorder. Are you being treated for this either via therapy or medication? Therapy can help a lot with your self-esteem problem, as well as the anxiety. Take care.
Avatar f tn The disorder is linked to significantly diminished quality of life and can be co-morbid with major depressive disorder and social phobia, also known as chronic social anxiety." http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn I also suffer from severe anxiety/panic disorder. To me, this sounds like you've gone so long not dealing with the anxiety that it has turned into major social anxiety. Breathing techniques are GREAT for calming down at home. Belly breathing. Tons of info on the net. I'd go seeing a therapist.
Avatar f tn Your child is probably suffers from anxiety and yes, every year there will be some regression - although each year the time frame should be shorter before she begins speaking. You might wish to google the phrase "selective mutism" to see if the more severe social anxiety disorder is that of your daughter. Our child was selectively mute and did not speak at school for over four years so if your daughter is selectively mute, it appears not to be a "severe" case.
Avatar n tn My son is almost four years old, and i know that he does things that are just not normal. I have been told by others that he may have an anxiety disorder. He clams up when we are in a social situations. He will want seperate himself from others when we are in a group. He throws tantrums when put in a large group. We have not been able to fully potty train him because, he hold in his bowel movements to point where we have to give him an enema. I thinks it because he is afriad of pooping.
Avatar f tn in the States, has unlabeled uses for GAD and SAD, (Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder) it is primarily prescribed here for fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. Nowhere can I find that it is beneficial for sleep problems, although one of it's side effects IS "fatigue," I don't think that is the desired effect for a sleep aid.
Avatar n tn I would say that if you have never started xanex that you shouldn't start it now. I think that obessessive compulsive disorder (OCD) can be called an anxiety disease. I don't think it means you have generalized anixety disorder, especially if you are only worried about that one thing. Perhaps you should see a counselor and get cognitive behavior therapy for yourself. I would check that out before starting on a med.
Avatar n tn Anxiety is an inherited trait and I suspect your son has inherited this gene. It was there at birth so the divorce, although this could exacerbate the issue, did not cause it. Whether your son suffers from separation or panic or social or some other form of anxieity is irrelevant (although I suspect it is social anxiety). Since your son is unble to function in certain social situaitons, it might be wise to educate yourself on this disorder.

Avatar m tn t sleep well. I have researched Social Anxiety disorder, but i dont feel i have it as i am not shy or have a big problem talking in a room full of people, and i am a sociable person and have friends, but on a daily basis i evaluate any social encounter what happened? and how i look? which is exhausting me and destroying my relations with people. I am now looking at bipolar disorder, but not sure if that is it, as i sometimes do have mood swings which i try to control whether up or down.
