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 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 He is very imaginative and very social. He has very low self esteem and a good amount of anxiety about taking risks after the break. My concern is that the Neurologists diagnosis is not based on any of his observations strictly the ADHD testing (and intelligence testing) and the GADS questionaire. Should the Neurologist be looking into other reasons for his behaviors or does it sound like the Aspergers diagnosis may in fact be correct?
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 f tn A few days ago I bought HIV self-test paper at the boots and the results were negative. But I am worried that the blood collection needle and test strip from the test paper will make me infected with AIDS.

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.
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 major PTSD, OCD, anxiety, social phobia, nd depression and it was also said that I have borderline traits. COuld anyone explain this??
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.
1269162 tn?1270781296 I was diagnosed at 14 with ADHD and social anxiety. The social anxiety label was later removed, as was the ADHD label because a psycho-ed test said I might not have ADHD. A few months ago a new psychiatrist re-diagnosed me with ADHD even after reading my psycho-ed. I am now diagnosed with ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder, and NVLD.
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.
696943 tn?1229366600 Google can explain and so can DSM-IV but basically BPD is a personality disorder and BP is a mood disorder - if you do some reading you will see a very large difference is apparent.
19191945 tn?1473708747 It sounds like social anxiety. My guess is that maybe this happened a few times, you became self conscious of it, and it became a social anxiety that continues because you are worried that it will happen. Anxiety has a huge effect on the gut. Maybe try to speak to a psychiatrist and start a low dose of anti-anxiety medication. If you want to go the natural route, there are things like holy basil and calming teas that you can try.
Avatar f tn considering my debilitating anxiety disorder i just wanted to ask once more because he had just gotten the western blot back and i never heard of a western blot before so i did not know how definitive it is.
Avatar m tn It was oraquick if that makes any difference.
689528 tn?1364135841 So my son (almost 4) has been diagnosed recently as having social anxiety disorder. When we are in public situations like a fair or even a small room with plenty of people he either acts out or cries. It takes him a VERY long time to warm up to some people, especially other kids. I think his teacher thinks he's autistic because he doesn't acknowledge the other kids. I run a home daycare and he will play with the kids here. He also talks to adults that he knows well.
Avatar m tn I have a history of having hysterical attacks and general anxiety including social anxiety disorder (actually especially that.) I have overcome all of this now and am very social, but I am still always stressed from life in general. I also have excessive dreaming. But in my life in general I just always feel like things are kinda hazy and i'm not really living. I always figured it's because of excessive dreaming (so lack of good deep sleep) or caffeine or fatigue something.
Avatar m tn I also was diagnosed with major depressive disorder, ADHD and anxiety/panic disorders a while ago, but I’ve been taking medications for them and don’t suffer from my previous BPD symptoms (although I do have problems with disassociating now).
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.

Avatar f tn You may be suffering from something like generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, or social anxiety. You could also have overactive adrenal glands. I suggest you see a doctor about it. Diet can also play a role in it. You might have a vitamin or mineral deficiency. Ask your doctor for a blood test to see and then adjust your diet if you do have deficiencies. Some foods are known to promote relaxation and relieve anxiety. I will post 2 website links to help you.
