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).
1611808 tn?1299558422 Commonly, the person has these fears in social settings, such as eating, speaking in public, going to social gatherings or meetings.

Avatar f tn I didn't do anything specific to resolve this symtpom, so I have no advice for relief other than addressing the root of your anixety. Dispel the anxiety, and the symptoms go away too! It took me 8 years to get that into my head, but now that I have reigned in the anxiety, I feel little to now symptoms. I hope this helps you and that you feel well today!
Avatar f tn Physically, I am healthy, but lately I'm finding my life devoid of meaning, am constantly forgetting things, say and do things to others that I immediately regret and in general can't seem to function or plan for the future. In class I've stopped paying attention and barely care about things like the quiz that I recently failed (if I did, it would be because someone else got upset over failing a quiz).
433412 tn?1232558056 function is major depression, not panic disorder. It is sometimes prescribed, long term, for social anxiety or generalized anxiety disorder, but seldom for major panic disorder. You said you were put on Effexor in January. I will assume you mean THIS January, not January,1945. You have been on it a very short time. I wonder if you gave it enough time to reach it's therapeutic effect? And I am going to scold you now!
Avatar m tn I am a 34 year old man and I exhibit most, if not all, of the symptoms of Aspergers.
Avatar f tn do you have anxiety big time? Do you dread social situations? These are 2 big caracteristics of an Aspie. Anyway, here is a test you can do: This is of course not a medical diagnosis, but is often quite accurate. Try to do this quiz honestly.
Avatar f tn Anxiety has physical symptoms... ok, that's fine. I am ok with a medical doctor diagnosing minor anxiety problems. To the best of my knowledge depression does not have physical symptoms and in untrained eyes depression can mimic other things like the natural process of grief, that is as I said natural.
Avatar f tn How many neuros have you seen re these symptoms? Has your neuro given any reason for symptoms? You say they can't do MRI and won't do LP - what tests have they done to look for reasons for your symptoms? Sorry for all the questions - but there are some great people on this site who may be able to give you some advice with a bit more info. Take care and all the best to you. Happy Holidays!
Avatar n tn I was probably making it worse with alcohol, I do agree with that. but I've had depression and social anxiety since I was 15 and I didn't start drinking until 20..and then it was just on the weekend due to being in college. I am willing to concede that I definitelty wasn't doing myself any favors by trying to drink my social anxiety away, it just made my mood worse.
Avatar m tn addicts' to anything and then find themselves addicted physically for many, anxiety,tachycardia (benzos) etc..but..when you have an addictive personality and take it to the extreme, then it becomes mental. i think those in the "mental" category would agree..I have been addicted to exercise, health "stuff', drugs, etc..I have that tendency and I know it now..I think the pain killer thing bites you in the a$$ before you know it..what makes an addict???
Avatar m tn If you are gay, your gay thoughts will be associated with pleasure rather than with fear (although you might experience anxiety about the social repercussions of “coming out”). If you have homosexual OCD, what-if questions about sexuality are ultimately unanswerable in the way that OCD demands they be answered. In my South Florida (Palm Beach County) psychological practice, people seeking HOCD treatment are preoccupied with attempts to know the unknowable.
Avatar m tn Having strategies in place to help manage stress and anxiety could be helpful. I would suggest you seek advice from your doctor and a counsellor. There is also the option of going to the police if you have concerns for anyones safety.
Avatar n tn it appears to have shared symptoms, but:... -it's not "right side" specific. Actually, it feels more like the left shoulder blade area. Also why the need to keep drinking water to avoid a backache.
303824 tn?1294875001 Now, there is no rest stop on this highway, it is high speed all the way, but you can manage, look out for support groups, you need to cry out your anxiety, if you crash he crashes too and so does your husband. There are many places that you can go for help, ask in Public Health office or talk to the school's social worker.
Avatar n tn I have been down so much these past 2 years with depression symptoms and axiety symptoms. Also me and my girlfreind think I have a possible OCD disorder from these allergies/sinus, when i feel fine which is rare I dont have any anxiety, depression or OCD problems(which makes me believe that my depression/anxiety/OCD is related to allergies/Sinus). My life is suffering dramaticaly from these problems, I really need to find some help very soon.
607502 tn?1288251140 The reason is not being anti-social, everyone else got my new phone number but they were having a birthday party for my grandfather on that side of that family and I explained I really couldn't go because of the severity of my physical disability and my grandmother said in a cynical tone "we figured". I hit the roof but because they are elderly I am polite to them but I just couldn't handle it.
Avatar n tn While Ativan is a short-term fix, it is extremely addictive and the withdrawals are a nightmare even at small doses (they gave me Ativan in the ED and only 1/2 a mg once a day brought a torturous withdrawal because the anxiety symptoms came back full force for about three weeks until my system adapted to normal again). Do see your doctor as soon as possible to discuss a better anxiety remedy for the long term.
Avatar m tn I have these weird symptoms as well. I really annoys me sometimes and when I try to explain it to people, they think im nuts! i'd really like to know what is causing this or moreover, what its called??? does anybody know??
Avatar f tn The Valium is especially problematic and risky, as abrupt benzo discontinuation can lead to seizures. Valium is less risky in that regard, but it is still a concern, and with the symptoms of the opiate w/d, your seizure thresh hold may be lowered. I would really recommend doing this with the help of a doctor, inpatient would be great, but if not, outpatient with close monitoring of a doctor, preferably one who specializes in addiction.
Avatar n tn Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and causes anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats. The anxiety causes more chest pain, more gas, and more discomfort. I have been trying everything to treat myself. Changed my diet (was drinking lots of soda and taking NSAID pain relievers every day) for the most part, but due to my work schedule I do eat too much fast food to this day. I drink nothing but water now, I have been watching everything I do.
Avatar n tn I go to a private school and get high grades, I get alot of things I want, I'm quiet and very shy, I'm not popular and don't have lots of friends nor am I a social person. I have low self-eestem and no one notices it, my "friends" that I have tends to leave me out often, they ignore me, or wonder off without me and I don't think they notice they do that. I hate what I see in the mirror, I despise how I look.
Avatar n tn Since stopping I have had various withdrawal symptoms - constipation giving way to the runs, anxiety, sleepless nights have returned, disinterest/lack of motivation. I feel that these tablets should carry clearer warnings about the dangers of long term use / overuse. Being a cynical sod it may well be that profit will dictate. In Britain alone I have a feeling that addiction to painkillers like N+ is a much bigger problem than any of us are aware of !!!
Avatar n tn Porn and Anxiety have crippled my sex drive / erections for life. I am 31 years old. I began watching my fathers porn tapes and using magazines to masturbate before I could achieve ejaculation. I have never told anyone that before. My addiction took on all new levels with the beginning of the internet in the late 90's. Even when I stop for a few weeks I still cannot maintain an erection or achieve a Full one. I don't even have morning wood.
