572651 tn?1530999357 I have submitted an entry to MAYO clinic for their social media workshop – it should be illuminating to see the medical side of this communication tool. MAYO Clinic is offering scholarships for three patient/caregivers to participate alongside medical personnel in their upcoming Social Media Conference. It appears I am the only Multiple Sclerosis patient advocate who has applied and I would appreciate your taking a few minutes to support my efforts.
620923 tn?1452915648 Misslissa528 - that is so typical of so many doctors - I have diagnosed doctors with having serious anxiety / stress obsessions. Its very scarey I know. But welcome and sorry I havent replied to you before but still new myself and only just found out we have a social scene!!! I dont have much to add about raising money for Chiari foundations as I cant even find one in Australia and that is why I have invaded you all in America - not that I could leave you now even if one popped up over here.
Avatar f tn Do you know any place that is having a workshop for children with special needs?
Avatar n tn Therefore,we are also in process of setting up social skills group with counselor and hope we can improve his social emotion area. There will be an intake assessment for his social skills next week. Should I also bring him for medical evulation or social skill group will help?
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 f tn I have a presentation coming up next week, so I decided to go and seek medical help today. I went to my doctor and he diagnosed me with social anxiety. He said that the best treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy, but he prescribed me some medication to get me through this semester. He prescribed 10 mg propranolol (inderal) 3 times a day and an extra 10 mg inderal 1 hour before the presentation + 0.25 mg Xanax 1 hour before the presentation.
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 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 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.
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 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 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?
492527 tn?1212175672 What would be the better medication for depression, anxiety, and social anxiety. Effexor xr or Zoloft.
Avatar f tn Try not to beat yourself up over the baby shower situation. Anxiety is tough and if you have social anxiety situations such as the baby shower obviously are going to trigger something. I would suggest that you talk with a therapist. They really are a great outlet. I hope you feel better soon....
10912630 tn?1413770190 You have social anxiety....I have the same thing I hate going out and being around people I don't know or crowds of people, don't feel like I have anything in common with people....go see a psychiatrist..I am on Effexor XR and Topomax seems to help a bit. At least I can deal a little better now. Good luck I hope you find peace.
Avatar m tn Hi, never posted on one of these sites before, thought I would give it a try. Shortly into my first pregnancy with my now son I started to experience severe social anxiety (did not know what it was at the time) well now my son is now 3 1/2 and I have full blown social anxiety. Can't even leave my door step without getting nervous in front of ANYONE :( ***** so bad. Never thought there was anything like this. About a year and a half ago I went to the doctor for a suspicious mole.
