Avatar m tn Is it possible to become addicted to oxytocin nasal sprays? Will my body stop producing as much oxytocin if i start using it? are there any dangers?
Avatar n tn I believe I have social anxiety and am currently seeing a therapist. However, managing my symptoms has become a daily challenge. How do I prevent panic attacks when I'm around others? I still get really anxious around strangers which prevents me from making genuine relationships?
Avatar f tn I would also have to agree that counseling can really help with social anxiety. First of all, don't feel ashamed or embarrased about it because many people suffer from this in my opinion. In my experience, counseling can she some light on why you are feeling anxious, make it less confusing, and gvie you as step by step approach to confront it.
Avatar f tn 25 mg xanax was not enough to take the ALL the anxiety feelings away - I still felt a little anxiety 5 minutes before my turn came up - however, without the anxiety symptoms. Next time, I would try one and half tablets of 0.25 mg xanax (i.e. a total of 0.375 mg) 1 hour before the presentation.
899491 tn?1243773627 Is it possible to have social anxiety with bp? I don't do the spending sprees or have extramartial affairs but I certainly feel paranoia. I start withdrawing after my manic episode. It all starts with not feeling comfortable around people and I feel highly irritable....it feels like I want to jump out of my skin. I have trouble speaking too. I would get sentences all mixed up or start stammering away when I have to talk to someone. I start to withdraw into my little world.

Avatar f tn So I've just recently become open with my social anxiety. I remember being in middle school and thinking that something was horribly wrong with me. I would get so nervouse around people. My body would tremble, my voice would shake and I couldn't think clearly. I've become more comfortable with being uncomfortable, and yes I do notice that there are plenty of people that are shy, but I really hate the fact that my real personality can't show when I'm around people.
Avatar f tn Anyone else get social anxiety in big groups? I have always been an anxious person in general but i have always Been able to manage it and show up to group events. I have noticed now though the farther along i get the more anxious i get and the more i get the overwhelming urge to bolt from events. Its getting bad too. Any one else or any ideas?
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 Yes, it does sound like social anxiety. Have you thought about getting in to counseling to help with this?
5148952 tn?1364321766 You are correct that the Abilfy will not help with your social anxiety. And while I do not mean to imply that your social worker has not helped you, very few, if any, social workers are trained psychologists who can help you with this problem. It may be worth considering professional therapy to beat this phobia once and for all.
Avatar m tn I know, when you feel the anxiety, it leads to more anxiety because you are anxious they will notice your anxiety... Higher heart rate, blood pressure, chest pains, wish to immediately leave the place... And to me, it seems better to leave home at night or when it is colder or rainy, because there are less people out there, on the street... You are not alone!
722310 tn?1234762137 I have a question about social anxiety accompanied with phobia. I am a mother of 5 and I have had social anxiety since I was young. I am now 45. I bagan to drink and use drugs at an early age, to help bring comfort when I was around people. I had it pretty well managed, by making myself get out. I have had counseling in the past, but I never discussed this with the counsler, because I really didn't think it was a major problem for me. My 2nd son is turning 16 next month.
Avatar m tn have a time limit. I know that if she had my social anxiety or whatever my problem is, I would leave with her once she reached her limit. But my wife won't do it. And it ticks me off. Then I get angrier inside, and I withdraw even more. Many times, I take 2 or 3 trips to the bathroom just to get 5 minutes to myself for some peace and quiet. By the end of the night, I'm exhausted, mentally and physically. She doesn't understand how emotionally draining it is to socialize.
Avatar f tn Yes you do have social anxiety. I have had it for years and now it has turned into agoraphobia. I also have panic attacks. I am not saying all this could happen to you but just be aware of these things. Have you seen a therapist? I stay secluded to my home but my therapist is trying to help me with these issues. I take xanax for the panic attacks and anxiety. But they do have different meds. I suggest you go to a mental health facility in your area. They can be quite helpful.
Avatar f tn So I have endured Social Anxiety all my life. Along with Depression, these two make a great pair! My question is this. How does one go about getting a job, going back to school, buying a car, etc, when you don't have money, because you can't get a job because you can't be around people (social anxiety)? This *****. It's really a nasty circle.
Avatar f tn If you find the answer to this question, let me know. Iam the exact same way. People seem to think i am stuck-up, or a b tch. My husband is the only one that gets me. One thing I have learned, when i do talk to people, i try to talk enough to bring up my shyness and it seems after that they know im not stuck-up and they reach out more. I dont take it anymore but when i was on lexapro, i was more confident with who i was and was able to talk more to people.
Avatar f tn I am positive that I have intertwining issues that are contributing to an emerging sense of apathy that is making my life a living nightmare. About two years ago I began to feel off. I'm a 20-year-old Japanese major, and throughout college I've only gotten one B.
Avatar n tn vacations, hospitalizations, business trips, or the comings of family members or bosses? 8. Do people find you strikingly stoic, unruffled, or computer like in the face of stressful life events? 9. Is your level of distress and concern about the problem strikingly high or conspicuously absent? 10. Is your skin worse in the morning, suggesting that you rub or scratch unintentionally at night? 11. Do you have trouble following your health care provider's instructions? 12.
Avatar n tn I think I might have some social anxiety, but it's more so around women than anything else. It's nothing with extreme or even slight physiological symptoms. I don't have any increased heart rate, sweating, shortness of breath, etc. It's like I look nervous, but I don't feel nervous. Mentally I feel calm, but I'm not sure what it is exactly, but if I'm around a girl she will usually say I look nervous. So I'm wondering what medication might be best for this.
