Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety uk


Avatar m tn How would I go about getting a prescription for Nardil to treat my social anxiety in the UK? I have suffered from social anxiety for years and now that I have left college it is really starting to have crippling effects on my quality of life both in finding work as well as making friends and finding partners. I have heard great things about Nardil in terms of really helping people that suffer from social anxiety, a lot more so than any other medications for this problem.
Avatar n tn I am a 37 yr old male who has suffered with social anxiety and low self esteem for most of my life and am now finally determined to treat it. I get very nervous in any social situation, meeting friends, shopping, sometimes even going to work. I will make up any excuse to avoid social situations if possible.
1200240 tn?1289343287 Is there anyone in this community from the UK? I live in Dagenham Essex England. I have not come across anyone else who suffers from chiari who lives near me at all, but i have seen a couple of websites of people with chiari who lives in the north of England. It seems to me that this chiari condition is more rare here in the UK than it is in USA. And it seems that no-one knows anything about the condition.
Avatar m tn I have an underlying depressive condition which pre dates any opiate use, aside from the physical aspects of withdrawal I'm terrified at the emotional impact this detox could have on me, particularly since I'm in the process of completing a PhD and have to teach (social science). In a senese I just dont have time to be too sick and with the job situation being as bad as it is in the UK I'm kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place. Once again appologies for confusing anyone.
Avatar f tn Geodon was approved as an antipsychotic for its primary use all over the world. Geodon has some concerns such as heart arrythmia though and its the only antipsychotic with this problem (out of the ones approved in the U.S. at least). Generally out of all of the antipsychotics Abilify is the least likely to cause weight gain and diabetes and sedation. Geodon was used more for a while because of this but Abilify is generally used more now. Did you ask about that one?
Avatar m tn I am a 23 year old male living in the UK. I have a track record of general anxiety, specifically HIV. Whilst at university I lost my virginity to a girl, and within a few days had begun to feel ill with cold symptoms. I scanned the internet and came to the conclusion that I was sereconverting...before I knew it, I was feeling dizzy, couldn't concentrate, starting feeling burning sensations all over my body...
Avatar n tn My dilemma is that I'm trying desperately after about 3-4 years to get clean and learn to function without opiates but I've been using them for so long to cope with anxiety and social fears that I'm afraid I'll have nothing to cope with those feelings once I'm clean if they don't go away (especially when in a foreign country).
Avatar m tn I still have insomnia issues for some reason, but I don't trip out at night, I'm merely awake. It's like my anxiety never happened for the most part and I'm able to move past all the moments anxiety would've crippled me and into the life I've desired all along but been too scared to manifest. What we desire the most, we fear the most could be an anxiety persons tag line.
1260240 tn?1336081048 I have come to realise that my son Glen 16 is suffering with agrophobia and anxiety, due to how he acts. If the prozac works then it will help him, but what if it doesn't it and he's only been on the meds 2 weeks and I've heard it takes around 4 weeks to notice any real difference. At the moment Glen doesn't want to go anywhere, i.e. clubs that he used to attend, respite, school.
758077 tn?1282599161 I would have thought the anxiety would have gone by now. I know sleep will help, but I need to get rid of the anxiety first.
Avatar m tn The thing that led me to quit was that for some reason my whole perception of life changed at one point and things honestly led me to believe that I was hopeless. Then I began noticing this lingering feeling of constant anxiety that I can't really seem to shake off. I thought I would eventually just move past it over time but it's been bothering me for awhile now and I hope its not permanent. It's been complicating my social life greatly and thats pretty much why I'm here.
Avatar n tn Hey, I'm writing to you from across the pond (uk). I also suffer with anxiety. It's awful feeling I feel trapped like I can't go out unless I have someone with me. I used to smoke pot and suffered with panic attacks really badly once I stopped smoking the attacks became fewer and fewer till the stopped. I smoke cigarettes now and find they make my anxiety worse but I'm struggling to quit. I don't currently take anything from the doc yet, but am thinking of doing so.
Avatar m tn Even if the symptoms arent somataforms, they can be caused my anxiety. I was having so much anxiety that I couldnt eat of sleep, which made my "symptoms" even worse. I took a vacation and my symptoms went away...I am under some stress now so I am getting a little anxious again. Ive been to the STD clinic three times in the last four months, and will go once more tomorrow. After that I have promised myself only to go at the intervals they recommend.
Avatar f tn It's time to address the anxiety. Our anxiety feeds off our fears and worries, and when we sit in anticipation of another attack, we will get one. You're absolutely correct, it's a vicious cycle. Try to distract yourself before and after eating both physically and mentally and see if that helps. If not, therapy would be very beneficial in teaching you how not to dwell on this and think differently.
Avatar n tn im a 20 year old male, healthy, fit, no social anxiety.
Avatar n tn Does anyone else have head issues and have been told that it is anxiety? I am about tired of this constant head pressure/pain that I keep getting. Its very weird. I will wake up in the morning and feel ok, then about 1/2 hour later this pressure/pain will start on the left side of my head near the top. It will seem to intensify and then lessen itself throughout the day with no real rhyme or reason to when it is worse or better.
1524304 tn?1326400574 It sounds like you have social anxiety. I'm not a professional. I have social anxiety myself. I can completely relate to how you feel about meeting others and getting a job. My social anxiety was worse when I was younger. I was able to overcome it and went on to university and became a professional. I would recommend seeing a Psychiatrist about this, for sure. You would need some professional help in the beginning and perhaps some meds as well.
Avatar m tn i agree about the sex stuff it does relieve my anxiety, i know it upsets her sometimes deepdown, she has some social anxiety but i try my best for her we have been out over a year now. well i know what doctor im seeing but one or two dont understand much about mental health. yeah i understand bout christmas.
Avatar m tn I would say you have Generalized Anxiety with an emphasis on social anxiety. See a therapist STAT! You do not want this to carry on into your adult life. I also used to be very mean to my loved ones but its you being guilty about something very irrational. Trust me on this one, I know odd coming from someone you don't know. Call and make a therapist appointment this week. Print out this list and bring it with you. No need to cut corners.
Avatar n tn This spring and last (at the same exact time, when oak pollen was strong) I got the constant burping and anxiety. For me, taking some Tussin product helped somewhat. Anxiety and allergies seem to go hand-in-hand for me and can produce some weird symptoms. Sometimes it helps just to know that's all it is. Hang in there!
Avatar m tn With help with sensory stuff his anxiety may reduce. But I would also go to your GP and get in writing the seriousness of his anxiety. Tell the doctor you need a letter in writing because you are being refused services. If the anxiety is so great that he is refusing school that can actually work in your favour. You just need it in writing. If the LEA cannot meet a child's needs in a state school then they have to fund a place for your child in a private school.
Avatar m tn hi, I have social anxiety .I only discovered this in the last year, always thought I had problems but was never sure what they were. when I went to see my gp she asked me to read up some information on the web about it and consider cbt. I have not gone in for cbt yet but something I did stumble upon recently, a test for hypoglycaemia. after taking the test,the result was that I was likely to have hypoglycaemia and that I should get a blood test.
Avatar n tn My doctor took blood tests and said that I didn't have it, but my anxiety had reached a stage where I convinced myself that he was lying to me. My anxiety presented itself with lots of physical symptoms, panic attacks, joint pain, muscle pain, nausea, dizziness, upset stomachs, vision distortion etc. I've also developed a very strong fear of death. Through therapy and 6 months of sertraline I've improved a little, but recently had a swollen finger which I went to my doctor with.
Avatar f tn My parents and boyfriend think i am suffering with my anxiety again (im prone to anxiety and depression) because when i had my Dirrohea i looked up dehydration on the internet and it said in severe cases it can lead to brain damage. I am now convinced a part of my brain is damaged, which is why i feel so odd or the tummy bug i had has effected my brain in some way. I have been to the doctor who thinks it is just anxiety and depression and has prescribed Paroxetine.
Avatar m tn it's possible that smoking only seems to cause anxiety in some people because they're anxious over the cost / social stigma / their health and other factors at risk due to lighting up. Another problem is that a lot of people smoke to "treat" anxiety, so naturally there are more anxious people among the smoking population. Nevertheless smoking is a stimulant and it is possible.
Avatar m tn I've read that smoking raises blood pressure and therefore exacerbates anxiety/stress, so it's a no-brainer that the social-smoking needs to stop. I also read that it's a good idea to cut out caffeine (no more Diet Mt. Dew *cry *throwfit *repeat). So if you are reading this looking for how to stop anxiety and panic attacks after a night of drinking, the simple answer is to STOP drinking.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with anxiety and I am currently taking 10mg Lexapro which doe not seem to be helping. I have really bad physical symptoms and I think there is something else medically wrong with me, even though the various health test that I've had all came up negative. My question is, does anyone of you suffering from anxiety feel constantly tired all of the time, feel like you are out of your body, like on drugs or living in a constant dream? I guess it's called depersonalization?
Avatar m tn Hi I have had panic attacks/anxiety for about 6 months now and in the past month they have gotten extremely worse. When i read your thing it felt like i was reading something i wrote.. i too am 20 yrs old and i weigh about 105. I lost weight due to the anxiety. I have been in and out of the doctor now for a month and like you , everything is normal. My symptoms feel like something is seriously wrong though and i also thought i had cancer, diabetes and everything else in the world!
Avatar m tn Im desperate, i worry about my health and think im going to die early because of the way i live my life. Iv started to develop social anxiety if out especially with out my kids.
