  • What could chest pain mean in healthy teen?

    Sharp pains ( I can point where I have these pains) occasionally either at right side, center, left side and sometimes back, discomfort in chest area and heavy feeling (but not severe) during day... I've been scared that it is a sign of heart attack.. I've been experiencing these symptoms for the last 3-4 days. I want to believe it is anxiety, but can anxiety cause constant chest discomfort and sharp pains for such long period of time? I am a healthy weight, non smoker 17 year old girl with no history in heart problems in family, and I do suffer from depression&anxiety.

  • How Do I Explain My Severe Depression and Symptoms Of Multiple Sclerosis To My Significant Other. ?

    I suffer from Depression and Multiple Sclerosis. I have been in a relationship with my significant other for almost three years. Within the past 19 months I can't get up the nerve to see him. He thinks i'm avoiding him but I truly love him. Something just keeps me secure here in Maryland. What can I do to get him to understand that I do love him with all my heart? I'm in Therapy now, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I'm more depressed now than I was almost two years ago. I don't go out much, I cry a lot ( which my significant other calls "Pity Parties"). He thinks it's him and it's not. It's me and fearing the worst will happen. I'm destroying our relationship with this extreme depression. Can anyone help me pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  • Is there such thing as a short term depression relief medication?

    I have been dealing with a depression for the past year now and it has been going really well now. I stooped taking my daily medication as recommended by my doctor. Now the symptoms are not a constant barrage as they where before. Now they tend to come out of nowhere and really strong some times, the way they behave can be compared with headaches. So I thought "hey if there is Advil for the headache of now and then, then there must be something for a depression that works in the same way." so I'm asking is there really such thing?

  • Weird Illness?

He has been renovating a house with alot of old insulation, and some animal fecees.

  • What is depression and are these people faking it?

    Do apologize for any offence to people genuinely suffering from it. I do not understand depression medically. All I have known is that when you are in a downward spiral and there's no coming back, people seek medical help. I have got a colleague, from my place I see her and her life complete, secure and fulfilling. At 28 she's got a house, car, a partner to come home to and grow old with, great relationship with her parents and family members. I do not see any bumps or dents in her life, have known her last 3 years. She says she's depressed and on medication, she takes loads. She is very happy and lighthearted to talk to. Everyone at work like her, she's great at her job, very intelligent and sharp on her knowledge about books, music, politics, etc. So, its out of my mind and imagination to figure out why she's depressed or just doing it for some sympathy? Like her I have come across many people who have fulfilling and happy lives, with solid support system, but they claim they are depressed and are on medication or therapy. I should be depressed and bed-ridden, after what I have been through and still going, but I am not.

  • How severe is my depression?

    I i was diagnosed as having postnatal depression when my son was born, but i had an interfering doctor who wanted to see me every 2 weeks and as i am not much of a talker i found this intrusive and uncomfortable no matter how many times i told her. Anyhow, 12 months on my symptoms have become worse where i have constant aches and pains, head aches, tummy ache and feel stressed constantly....i feel so low i cant bear to be awake most days and sleep the 4hrs my son sleeps during the day as i feel so tired and drained ( hes a good sleeper at night) im always snapping at my husband and wish i was somewhere else every day. I adore my son and smother him with love and affection so i do love him dearly, i just hate my life and i am so jealous of my husband having a job and life, but i dont have anyone who can care for our son so i can do anything, my parents work full time and my in law is now a widow. I dont have any local friends, so i am isolated too, i cant join baby groups as an ex friend goes who has bad mouthed me to everyone local so all i get is nasty looks! I feel so glum and just want to pack my things and leave because i am so fed up of my life being dull, im 27 and cant bear to leave my son, but also cant stand to be a lonely wife at home doing nothing with my life!

  • Help with depression?

    answer what you can I have had depression for a long time now, it was quite severe when i was 11/12 but it's getting back there again, unfortunatly it's destroying me. My grades are really suffering from it though, i'm getting god aweful grades because of this due to a number of things caused by depression, how can i ask my teachers for support? i doubt they would believe me since my friend pulled this last year and got off half the work because of it (and did everything she could to rub it in my face) i don't want that though i just want support and them to understand why i will sometimes start crying or stop focusing, i'm rea;;y scared about my grades..... Can depression cause physical pain? for the past year and a half i have been getting horrid heart pains, i went to the doctor but he said it was just muscle spasms but earlier today it was bloody aweful, it felt like my heart was giving out. could the whole depression thing have weakened my heart? For anyone who has had depression, did it ruin your life too, i just don't want to feel alone in this, my friend who suffered from it got alot of pity trewatment so her life wasn't affected really in terms of grades and such but i just want to know......

  • What are symptoms for lyme's disease in dogs?

  • After depression, I feel like I'm left with no personality?

    When I was 15 I was diagnosed with severe depression. I went through numerous traumatic experiences. I lost all my friends during this time as I know I was very difficult to be around. I'm now 21 and I've come off my anti-depressants and I'm actually feeling ok, except in social situations. I feel like I'm not me anymore, I don't know who I am, I don't know how to respond anymore. I feel like I have no idea what I should be doing in social situations, I don't know how to read people's emotions or the tones in their voice. I was never like this before I got depression, I was popular and had heaps of friends. Will this slowly come back? Or am I screwed?

  • Are there any lawsuits against the drug minocycline causing drug-induced lupus?

    I began taking Minocin or generic name Minocycline approximately five years ago for rosacea. In August 2009, I developed a rash on the inside of my forearms that spread to my legs and finally 90 percent of my body. I then started having severe pain in my joints and muscles, depression, fatigue, brain fog, blurred vision, hair loss, and my toenails are even coming off! Since this began I have seen four different emergency room doctors, four family doctors, two dermatologists an allergist, and a rheumatologist. Finally, after years of suffering, I have been diagnosed with drug induced lupus caused by Minocycline. Also, my liver enzymes and histone levels have went from moderate to severely elevated. I have been referred to Kelsey Seybold Clinic in Houston, Texas for further evaluation. My health has deteriorated extremely and I don't know how much longer I can work. I am single and have no other income. My question is why did it take so long before I was diagnosed, and why is this "bad drug" still being prescribed? How many more people have to suffer like me (as well as many others have), before it is taken off the market? I fear the damage to my liver and skin may be permanent. I have been off this drug for five months but I am still suffering. If you are suffering with these symptoms and take Minocycline, be sure your doctor orders blood work that checks for "drug induced" lupus. My first lupus panel was normal, and the only reason they found it was because addition tests were ordered due to abnormal liver tests. I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you, Candy in Louisiana

  • What are signs of severe depression in teenagers?

  • Did the antidepressant I'm taking trigger hypomania (bipolar) in me? Please help me!!?

    I'm 15 years old. I started off being mildly depressed, then began taking an antidepressant. Symptoms that developed in me over 1 week: - Insomnia (Difficulty falling asleep some nights/pulled all nighters because I just wasn't tired) - Very high energy levels (After no sleep one night, I went for a 1hr walk at 6:30am/Pretty much literally bouncing off the walls) - More creative than usual (Drawing/Writing more..even at like 3am in the morning sometimes..?) - More socially outgoing (Started up conversations with people I never would normally/Made my opinion heard more often) - Derealization (For short periods of time, not long) - Euphoric feeling ('I am amazing, I can do anything! I feel AMAZING!!') - Racing thoughts (Sometimes when talking to people I'd confuse myself because my thoughts got all mixed up and they'd become even more confused) - Higher self esteem than normal (My self esteem is usually non existent) - Occasionally I'd become insanely irritable (Every little noise would make me want to lash out/Hurt a friend's feelings because I told her I hated her and to not speak to me) - Wanting to do lots of things (I'd make plans in my head of things I needed to do - I now realise that shopping, writing a novel, cleaning my room and meeting up with friends to party is not all possible in one day.) - Impulsive/Sexual behaviours (Stripping on webcam for guys I don't know (I know, I'm embarrassed about it..)/Ordering things online I don't need/No thought went into the decisions I made) After this, I became suicidally depressed for a week. So did the antidepressant trigger hypomania in me, and if so does this make me bipolar? NOTE: I'm seeing a psychiatrist next week because my mum is very worried about me/I already see a psychologist but I haven't seen her since before I started the antidepressant. Also, my dad is depressed and has anger issues, so mental illness does run in the family, if that matters.
