Avatar f tn About 4 months ago I started having really bad anxiety. I worry all the time about my health. I have been to the doctor about 7 times so far. I had a physical which came back normal but I still worry about my health. I always think I have a brain tumor. I got laid off of my job about 3 months ago. Since then my anxiety has been really bad. I am always at home now and I think a lot. When I do leave to go somewhere I am a nervous wreck.

Avatar f tn Anxiety problems can be caused by the foods you are eating and can be corrected by diet or be treated by chemicals. That is your choice. Look up on the web for natural foods for anxiety. MSG has 13 other names and has neurological effects. Start eating fresh fruits/vegetables, look up the dangers of microwaving foods. For depression, it might help to start helping others and putting your focus on that...
1132574 tn?1271672466 Hi Everyone, I am new to the anxiety forum. Had a a few weeks of anxiety hit me in January when I was having medical testing done. I am 36 and have high blood pressure every time I see a doctor as I just get so nervous when I go to the doctor. They ran tests which freaked me out even more and wham, I was then anxiouss all the time. The tests eventually all came back normal. With that reassurance my anxiety vanished.& I was even able ot take my BP at home with no anxiety.
Avatar f tn However, there remains a shortage of literature exploring the relationship between the alleviation of anxiety and the use of acupuncture, In this study, the S-Anxiety scale (STAI Form Y-1) of the State- Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was administered to 89 patients, before and immediately following one acupuncture treatment.

Avatar f tn I have been feeling spiritual anxiety to the point of obsession for one year now. I even have the sensation of getting an "evil smile" where I fear I'm going to smile at horrible situations. I dot know if I'm turning evil or if I'm OCD. My doctor thinks I might be OCD as I filled out the questionnaire but I don't have compulsive behavior other than over or under eating tendencies. I constantly obsess that I'm becoming evil.

Avatar n tn Therapy has done wonders for me to understand the way my mind processes anxiety symptoms and has taught me how to deal with them. Also the frequency of my panic attacks have decreased since going through therapy and coming to this forum has helped . My concern for you is your need for a Dr. you can trust. Maybe you should consider going to a Dr. that has a good reputation. Now take good care of yourself and keep us informed of how you are doing.

Avatar m tn Benzodiazepines have robust efficacy in the short-term management of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), but were not shown to be effective in producing long-term improvement overall.

Avatar n tn Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is defined as chronic, excessive worry and fear that seems to have no real cause. Children or adolescents with generalized anxiety disorder often worry a lot about things such as future events, past behaviors, social acceptance, family matters, their personal abilities, and/or school performance. All children and adolescents experience some anxiety. It is a normal part of growing up.
Avatar m tn You can have generalized, and consistent symtoms of anxiety, called generalized anxiety disorder GAD, without having just panic attacks, or panic disorder. Your symtpoms sound a bit more on the severe or distressing side of anxiety disorders. My questions and suggestions would be, if this is the first time you are experiencing this, yes it could be anxiety, but go to the doctor urgently to be sure it's not serious.

Avatar m tn Your symptoms mostly suggest normal body sensations that seem more prominant than normal because of your anxiety about all this. Most likely the white spots indeed are hari follicles, or normal sebaceous skin glands -- which are easily seen on anybody's penis. If you remain unconvinced about my reassurance, see a health care provider to examine you and perhaps consider STD testing. But it would be extremely surprising to find out you have any sort of STD or other infection.
