Social anxiety vitamin deficiency

Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety vitamin deficiency


Avatar f tn Also seeing as you have spontaneous anxiety attacks you should also get a full check up from your doctor, he/she will probably do a full blood panel workup to make sure your fine, things such as an overactive Thyroid can cause anxiety, nervousness, panic attacks. Vitamin Deficiencies can cause anxiety and panic attacks too, being low in EFA (essential fatty acids) like Omega 3 will do the same.
Avatar f tn Most of your symptoms sound familiar to me when I had anxiety, social anxiety and depression. If this is the case I had medications, herbal remedies, and counselling over many years. I was constantly diagnosing every twinge I had which heightened my anxiety/depression. The only thing that helped me was to push through the front door and start walking, then jogging and running. I'm more fit/healthy and my anxiety level is now 0.

Avatar n tn Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause this much pain? Went to the doc for muscle pain & weakness with increasing shooting pains to the point of affecting everyday functioning. Blood test came back low in Vitamin D. Result was 11, (should be 26 to 55). Other results OK. Cervical Spine & lower back MRI OK. Treatment is 50,000 units of D per week for 4 weeks and thereafter once a month. Been on it for 4 months. Feel at times like I was in accident.

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....
1760652 tn?1313065993 I don't know if this is true of everyone who has Morton's toe, but they say those who have it have a P5P deficiency. P5P is a breakdown of vitamin B6. Maybe talk to your nutritionist about adding P5P (available in vitamin stores, etc.) along with your B-complex vitamin. I know it's supposed to affect magnesium and B12 in some way. This is not my expertise, just something I tripped across in my reading. Hang in there.
Avatar m tn this quote - 'He presented some very compelling evidence to support treating most psychotic disorders as a vitamin B3 deficiency' refers to Abram Hoffer a renowned researcher of B3. Google him. Meantime, anyone heard of this or tried a doctor with it?
Avatar n tn I have two daughters with MBL deficiency. It is a part of the complement system, so they have trouble fighting off infections, therefore getting them much more frequently than others. I also think they have had more problems with general body pain... due to all of the infections. My girls are now 9 and 10 and after years of chasing this down both are doing much better. I am more aware, as well as doctors, so antibiotics are immediate, no waiting until they are really sick.
Avatar m tn In my opinion, many people experience social anxiety; especially when you are stressed out. I believe you are doing the right thing by seeing a psychologist about this. You are learning to confront and deal with your fears. Just be patient can take awhile to learn how to deal with it sometimes. Keep your head up and don't beat yourself up if you have your bad days with this. Keep us posted!
Avatar n tn The craving for things like paint and dirt is usually from a deficiency in either Vitamin D or Calcium. Your doctor can have these tested so ask and find out where you are at.
Avatar n tn Eating a really well-rounded breakfast in the morning, eggs and cereal and juice, and then in the afternoon when he gets home a healthy snack and then vigorous exercise, these things will help release tension that is usually associated with anxiety. Teens like to have a sport they can do, like learning tennis, martial arts, swimming, horseback riding, basketball in the driveway with the father, or long walks in the neighborhood with the mother.
Avatar f tn Anxiety and panic attacks are symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency. Anxiety and panic attacks are also symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Any type of physical or mental stress (including surgery) depletes magnesium levels. Worth trialing sublingual (under the tongue) B12 and chelated magnesium supplements. Do not take magnesium if you have heart or kidney problems.
Avatar f tn Treating Vitamin D Deficiency May Improve Depression June 25, 2012 — Women with moderate to severe depression had substantial improvement in their symptoms of depression after they received treatment for their vitamin D deficiency, a new study finds.
1772374 tn?1326249837 I'm suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, OCD, and Tourettes Syndrome. It started out with Tourettes and OCD but as i've gone through some trauma GAD and SAD has developed and is destroying me. As of right now i'm taking Lexapro, Busiprone, Xanax (as needed), and Gabapentin. I'm 18 years old and i'm having great difficulties even finishing with online classes. I seek assistance for alternative medications or treatments that may help these symptoms.

Avatar m tn I went back to my doctor a few times asking about possible other medical causes such as fibromyalgia, vitamin deficiency, etc. but he refused to believe it was anything but stress and wanted me to take Zoloft, which I refused. I saw a psychologist for about a month and did a few acupuncture sessions, which seemed to help my circulation a bit but also seemed to cause fasiculations in my legs, so I stopped after 2 sessions. The psychology sessions succeeded in ceasing panic attacks.
Avatar f tn Some people are simply suffering from a vitamin or mineral deficiency or hormonal problem, so first step with depression is to visit a regular family/primary/internal-medicine physician, ask for a blood draw of everything, vits, minerals, endocrine (hormones). Ask if they can also test for your Serotonin levels. Some foods will increase Serotonin in the body, so hit the computer and look around for some foods.
11638679 tn?1457989540 I moved across the country and changed schools and thats when i developed very bad social anxiety. My doctor put me on zoloft and it helped my anxiety immensely, but it started making me feel very apathetic and i couldn't stand that feeling so i stopped taking it. After stopping the medication my anxiety was still alot better. About 8 months after i stopped the zoloft a stressful event happened and my anxiety came back. Its been about 5 months and my anxiety is still here.
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.
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 I become so stressed that I find it very difficult not to become physically violent in public situations. -Social anxiety. This has been a problem throughout my teen years. It was never really solved...It has decreased, I mainly experience anxiety simply in general, but I would say it's still there. I would definitely prefer to be alone. -Restless Leg Syndrome. This has recently begun to affect me.
Avatar f tn During that month I suddenly started to have panic attacks and developed a bad social anxiety and OCD type thoughts. My physical anxiety symptoms were tingling in my arms, nausea, shortness of breath and feeling like I was going to faint. I lost my appetite, and I've now lost 6kg of body weight in under a month. I finally got the courage to go to the doctor, but she only said to increase my SSRI medication dosage. I did that, but the anxiety almost became worse. The doctor won't do any tests.
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 n tn i too have what feels like social anxiety attacks when around others. i am unable to work due the the adrenellan feeling and nausea and gagging feeling i get when i move to fast. puking at work is not cool then you have to clean it up and that makes you puke more. when i get really excited it happens and i cant control it. my wife thinks somethings terribly wrong with me. ha ha ha! well ive had my fun in life i could care less if i go now. i cant take this anymore.
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 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!
