Avatar f tn They may contribute to your depression, specially in the winter when the barometric pressure is lower, affecting you production of natural cortisol - the feel good hormone- thus contributing further to your depression. Checkout natural alternatives* instead of opioid meds, but as you probably know, the withdrawal symptoms can be nasty! You would need a co-operative and knowledgeable health Professional to help you wean off those meds. Yes, I know, what is going through your mind!.
Avatar m tn John Wort numerous times... everybody says thats suppose to be the #1 natural / herbal pill for depression. But its NEVER worked for me. Evening Primrose Oil works in an amazing fashion for me. EVERY single time. I had a really bad bout last week... starting taking Primrose Oil, and I completely changed around for the better almost instantly Would love to hear other peoples thoughts on this. Even 500 MG's a day is nice too. But 1000 MG's a day, you'll definately notice it.
Avatar f tn Do not consume caffeine at least 6 hours prior to bedtime.The reason for this longer depression and insomnia symptoms is because Tramadol, besides affecting the opioid receptors, has an effect on the serotonin receptors in the central nervous system. That means you may also need an SSRI antidepressant to deal with some depression that may develop as the result of your withdrawal. But it does get better and better every day if you stick with it, so please don’t give up.
Avatar m tn That doesn't sound, from your circumstances or some of the symptoms, to be depression. Perhaps you need to see your regular doctor.
Avatar n tn my personal experence is that the depression go's away within a year after we stop useing, but i have found that the winter months have brought about a pretty strong depression even after being clean for 5 and 10 years. peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn These compounded hormones do not affect fertility, they are not for birth control purposes, but can certainly help with excessive, irregular bleeding, depression, menopause symptoms and other hormonal imbalances. My heart goes out to all you having problems with the pill. I have a 20 year old, 4 months on the pill, experiencing constant anxiety and depression with anger and bouts of crying over small things. I am helping her find alternatives.
Avatar n tn I would not recommend taking contraceptives just to get rid of the symptoms. I am only a chemistry major, but it only seems natural that taking in such a pill would only cause imbalances. The first time I had these symptoms they were swine flu symptoms; however, I was tested negative. This will be the third time I have had these symptoms, but the last two have not been as bad as the first time. It has been about four months since taking Plan B.

Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar m tn I also have low energy, no drive and aches and pains, physical injuries not healing and thus chronic inflammation and poor sleep when I don’t take medication olonzapine. I have tried natural remedies as prescribed by a naturopath like St. John Wort, GABA, adrenum for adrenal gland fatigue. melatoin, B-vitamins, vitamin- B6, homeopathic remedies. Adreum, GABA, melatoin helped me to some extent. When I am on them I am relaxed but it’s too relaxing.
Avatar n tn 24AM regarding these symptoms as depression needs to be removed. I play tennis and have these symptoms increasingly as I age after a hard game and have muscle pain. I do not like to take meds, therefore a hot bath and much rest is usually what improves my condition, and I think I am also depleted in vitamins and electrolytes. My muscle pain and fatique is most likely related to allergies or a missing nutrient.
Avatar f tn Some of the symptoms you're describing sounds like possible depression. It can completely drain you. It's really not uncommon to have both depression and anxiety together. I know how hard it is to except any of this. I went through the same thing when I first started having panic attacks. I kept going to my Dr with all of these symptoms and everything was coming back normal, When I finally saw a psychiatrist and she said it was anxiety it made sense and was a relief because I had an answer.
Avatar m tn Try a book by Hyla Cass called Natural Highs; she's a psychiatrist at UCLA who uses natural remedies in her practice and discusses a good part of the universe of natural remedies for mental disorders. It's a good place to start so you have a better chance of success.
Avatar n tn Karen: I had similar symptoms (but no blood). I had some knowledge abt the symptoms of GERD & Barrett's Esophagus. The pains I had (shoulder (front and back), under my arm, under the sternum, and across back was GERD pain. I furst went to a heart specialist for tests. They were negative. Then, I went to a Gastroenterologist and confirmed i have Barrett's Esophagus. Yes, I would go to a Gastroentologist.
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old male and since October 2006 have been experiencing 24-7 sinus pressure in the upper corners of my nose (always one side at a time), but NO allergy symptoms (i.e. no running nose, sneezing, coughing, itchy nose/eyes/throat, etc). The pressure is so bad that it presses back onto my brain, causing terrible lightheadedness, forgetfullness, and general mental impairment.
Avatar f tn Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
Avatar f tn Well I think I said more than I can go back over and edit, But am glad to talk more. I think you made the right move to try the natural way, and if you want the natural remedies that my doctor perscribed me for my "depression", it is: St Johns Wort ( It really does give me a bit of a spiritual uplift). and for vitamins: D-3 for the winter season ( dont know if this applies to you? ), folic acid, and I am also taking a multi vitamin. It cant hurt.
Avatar dr m tn Do you feel tired all day no matter how much sleep you get? Have you tried various home remedies, over-the-counter medications or even prescription medications with no help? If you answered yes to any of the above, what you will read below will show you how critical it is to breathe well through your nose. Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period.
Avatar f tn That's a great start to end this addiction. Enjoy, your tv, take hot baths, try natural remedies for sleeping aid, and most importantly stay STRONG!!
Avatar m tn I probably should have explained a little better just to help people make the most of "natural" remedies. Melatonin isn't natural, really, it's a pharmaceutical product -- it's synthetically produced, not derived from a plant, but called natural because it's naturally found in the body. It's an end product remedy, meaning it's what you want when you take it, and about as safe as anything tested -- I don't think they were ever able to kill a rat with any dose of it.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
Avatar f tn Before turning to potent meds, I would advise you to exhaust all other methods, including the more natural or OTC remedies (which, you should also limit as much as possible, because rebound insomnia will occur with those too, after enough regular use). Here are some tips to help with your sleep: 1. Avoid any and all stimulants (caffeine, nicotine, energy drinks, etc) as much as possible, especially within 4+ hours of bedtime. 2.
Avatar m tn this glanduar fever can come without fever or not i mean no fever but other glanduar fever symptoms can appear?my main concern is i gone in alots of depression without any reason.cause only those peoples they have alots of depression who got this china disease.One Question do you have any idea about skin broken inside of cheeks?cause i have this problem some times after 10 days some times after 15 days no idea why.
343006 tn?1314450071 Don't be fooled by so called "natural" remedies. All of our drugs originate from a lot of "natural" sources. People assume because it says "natural" that it is okay to use....WRONG! The FDA does not monitor "natural" remedies and they can be very dangerous, so be careful. Also, when taking any of the natural remedies, always let your doctor know if you have to have any surgical procedure with anesthesia.
Avatar n tn I live in the Northeast and I have trouble (with depression)in the winter as it is. Thanks again for sharing your experiences. I am holding you all in my thoughts and prayers. We can't give up, there is got to be a way to make this stuff better.
738890 tn?1232217879 Try googling for nutrition for thyroid or natural remedies for hypothyroidism, I think I found some stuff a while back but can't lay my hand to it right now. As always, pound the Vitamin C as it'll will generall pep up your immune system and help you heal quicker. Good luck, take care of yourself. Get well soon and hopefully you'll just shake it off. At least you're not going to have to put up with it for life hopefully. I wish you well.
5341133 tn?1372015506 Insomnia is one of the most commonly reported symptoms of detox/withdrawal, and probably one of the more irritating. Sleep affects our mood, energy levels, concentration, everything. While it is frustrating, some of the best advice I've seen is to try to allow the sleep to come back as naturally as possible, which is best for the long run. If you're going to try anything, I agree that a more natural supplement would be the best choice.
