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. You'll be fine as long as you reach out for the help you need.
Avatar m tn By the way, panic disorder is anxiety times a hundred, so if you have panic disorder, it follows that you are anxious. I also take clonazepam for my disorder, and after a year of exposure therapy and that medicine, I could have gone off it, I do believe. But instead, since I am an older person, we all agreed why not take it. The drug also helps me with other problems I have from a car accident.
Avatar n tn hi i'll try to make it short- well ive had anxiety disorder since this january. and i havent taken any medications (yet!) i do get very dizzy or feel like im running out of breath whenever i get nervous, scared.etc and Yes, is ometimes do feel like its not the stress or anxiety, but some brain issues, anyhow, im trying to overcome these problems by myself, without taking medications. i strongly believe that u should take some time and try to relax...
Avatar n tn maybe I've become good at hiding it from myself, and the Zoloft uncovered the true anxiety disorder? Second, I have been a worrier all my life. I tend to dwell on the things I worry about(although I don't worry about everything, just the things I attach to I worry excessively over) and that has been the big problem with this incident. I was happy and coping with my worries before the "Zoloft" reaction, and now it's difficult to deal with the anxiety without the Xanax.
Avatar f tn But to me, the way you describe it, hey, it's deep depression and panic disorder/ anxiety. So, go thee hither and get thyself well. It's free at DSS. Then report back in two weeks, let us know how you feel !!! Yours, Gail (GG...

1515545 tn?1291399364 and of course he told me to increase the paxil to 2 pills a day, so I decided I am not taking any of the meds, because that is what is increasing my anxiety out of control. I also don't want to be a test dummy trying to find the right meds while my brain goes through craziness while it's going on. I have felt better since stopping the meds yesterday, I still have social anxiety but its nothing like it was on the meds.

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 Lately she has been telling children she doesn't like them. I feel horrible and I am thinking she has a social anxiety problem. She was in school this past year and her teacher never said anything. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn I've tested 6 times using OraQuick's rapid test and all came back negative, but these symptoms continue to ruin my life with panic and anxiety (and that's aside from the social anxiety). Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I have social anxiety disorder, ptsd, and ocd. I have been also told by my last psychologist he couldn't give me anything for anxiety. Side effects, and my history of drug/ alcohol abuse. But as part of his treatment i did dialectical behavior therapy which is for ppl with bpd and alot of it focused on breath work and exposure therapy and as part of the therapy i was told i had to volunteer because i was not leaving the house and now i volunteer 2 days a week and i love it.
1263071 tn?1270297845 My MRI is clean and I keep hearing you might want ot consider conversion disorder over and over again. I am discouraged though because I have been to a psychiatrist that ruled that out. So I have half drs saying MS and half saying conversion disorder. Has anyone every experienced this and do you ever feel like you leave your dr office like you have just had the wind out of you? How long have some of you had to wait for your diagnosis? Did people say you were nuts?
Avatar m tn You have described a situation very common to children suffering from anxiety - social anxiety. But, your posting is very limited in its information. I might suggest you google the phrase "social anxiety and children" or "anxiety behaviors in children" or similar words/phrases to see if the descriptions remind you of your son. It does appear from your short posting that if anxiety is the issue, the anxiety is not severe.
Avatar m tn In my opinion, HIV Panic Disorder deserves its own seperate category in the list of anxiety disorders. It evokes curiosity that many of us develop the same symptoms in a similar time frame. Upset stomach, lymph nodes, the infamous tingling sensations, fatigue, mouth ulcers, mysterious body aches and pains, etc. are very common among people here.
Avatar m tn I agress with you, most of the PDoc, Doctors and Psychologist will put the blame entirely on the anxiety and say that it's only severe panic disorder with agoraphobia and OCD about my heart, they will say that it's normal that i'm exhausted cause the anxiety overactive my cardiovascular system and my minds are always running fast so that's why i'm tired all the time, but I don't stop to complain and told them that it's not normal to feel like I feel now!!!
Avatar m tn For the past several years, and up until about 6 months ago I suffered from Generalised Anxiety Disorder, a condition which dramatically lowered my quality of life. To all intents and purposes, I am now cured of my anxiety condition. I can say this because I no longer have panic / anxiety attacks and it does not control my lifestyle in the way that it used to.
Avatar n tn I'd like to add a little more to my previous comment. My daughter is entering puberty as well, and I have noticed an increase in her moodiness. She's more likely to cry when reprimanded and is becoming more sassy. She has friends, but she bosses them around alot and even though we have spoken to her about it, I can hear that she still does it. I'm afraid she'll lose friends if she doesn't learn to cooperate. I've caught her lying ("I didn't call my little sister annoying.
Avatar n tn I have had panic disorder many years...fast heart rate was a common complaint but in all my years I never noticed the skipping til one day I was ehausted and dehydrated.. I am getting better and have learned to ingore them..I still do tend to notice them after excercise. I have just come to the conclusion I have probably had them but neve noticed them before. I am managing panic/pvc's without medication but it is so hard when your heart is racing close to 160 bpm...
Avatar f tn I had similar thoughts about my son. If you have a speech disorder, sensory integration disorder, auditory processing disorder etc that are separate diagnosis - do they add up to autism? I think my son is autistic because he does meet the criteria. There are some areas he does quite well at, and like you, if he improves he could well lose his diagnosis as well. I don't understand why professionals are so black and white about things (sometimes I find them more autistic than my son!).
Avatar m tn One thing I have noticed about the thyroid disorder section is we all play cat and mouse with the current q&a system provided. I've also noticed we all tend to be online at about the time responding back a fourth. I would like to know if anybody would like a chat room here?Not only would it bring more people here to discuss thyroid issues, maybe dr.Lupo or another reputible endo could chime in at a planned time every week and answer questions.
Avatar f tn Hi... I've never been to a psychiatrist but I pretty much know I have social anxiety disorder and possibly as a result depersonalization. While the social issues are getting better, depersonalization is getting worse I feel. Losing track of time abnormally, not remembering things ( im only 18 and should have no problems with memory) etc.
Avatar n tn That day I got my car back from the shop and they told me there was still a leak in the exaust so I had the doctors there test me for carbon monoxide. The test came back negative and he told me about anxiety disorder and gave me a week supply of xanax. The xanax worked great but I could feel myself getting hooked on it bad...and didn't want that. I would take one in the morning and feel okay almost all day. I went to my doctor just as I was on my last pill.
808293 tn?1238605783 I suffered from 24/7 anxiety and obsessive thoughts about anxiety, until I decided to seek therapy and go on meds. I have been on both for just over 2 weeks. Since then, I will have a few days where I felt good; anxiety wasn't nearly as bad, the obsessive thoughts about anxiety didn't come as often, and I could stay positive for most of the day...I guess I started to think I was "cured", even if logically I knew I really wasn't.
Avatar f tn I am guessing I have GAD, my doctor did not tell me what kind of disorder I have.. all I have been told was that I have anxiety. I have this undescribable nervous feeling everyday. Sometimes worse than other days. I also have palpitations which started over 4 months ago and have continued everyday. I do not have bad panic attacks. The extent of mine have been nervousness/shakiness, hot flashes, shivering, etc.
Avatar m tn HIV Anixety is very treatable, just like any other anxiety disorder. The fact that this has become all consuming for you and is affecting your life should indicate for you that it is time to seek some professional help to assist you in moving forward and putting this whole incident behind you. The actual "exposure" itself posed NO risk to you whatsoever. Condoms work and prevent HIV if they do not fail....and if a condom DID fail you wouldnt miss it....
539024 tn?1270582597 lol I am agoraphobic and claustrophobic, have social anxiety, GAD and panic and yet I managed really well. Sometimes we need a push to do the things we really want or need to do. I went to Florida because my sister has lung cancer. I would normally never go to Florida at this time of the year (or ever) if it weren't for my sister. It is hurricane season and mating season for aligators...a huge fear of mine was meeting up with a gator which is not uncommon when one lives on a golf course.
758077 tn?1282599161 first of all it only happens to people whom have an anxiety/ panic disorder. It has to do with the Serotonin and adrenaline levels in your body... When you are drinking your serotonine levels sky rocket and your adrenaline level dips a lot, so you feel a lot less anxiety when you are drunk depending on how much you drink, alcohol is a depressant/ a downer, that explains that...
Avatar m tn Thank You sooooooooo much. I am going to try your suggestions. I to, used to be able to drive the freeway like a crazy person. I actually LOVED the freeway & driving itself now I fear it everyday. I take back roads to work & have not driven the xpressway in a year but I want to so bad. I try to tell myself that this is NOT going to control me & some days are good & I feel like I can drive forever...but most days are a real challenge. I have trouble at stop lights....
