  • 2I have been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Clinical Depression. ....?

    This has been going on most of my life , but I did not have any symptoms for a long time until I had my daughter . Then he began to have blood pressure problems , and I'm on 50 mg of Toprol a day for that and anxiety . Am maximum Zoloft 200 mg daily , both for depression and anxiety. Volume Clonapin for anxiety and here I want to throw under active thyroid disease being monitored carefully . - The problem is that I am having numbness and tingling in my breast area and in my fingers . My doctor says it's my panic symptoms returning . I do not understand this, as they have been given a ton od drugs . Normally I do not feel nervous , but I have a lot of physical anxiety / stress symptoms . I was looking for ideas on this subject - does similar things or any experience knows of a way to overcome this. I am so tired of all this .

  • 3I suffer from C-PTSD, social anxiety, panic disorder, chronic insomnia and major depression disorder?

    I started seeing a psychologist (I see him every week) at the start of this year and started seeing a psychiatrist about 2 weeks ago. I've been on an array of anti-depressants and a whole bunch of different anxiety meds over the past 6 months. But I still can't see a big improvement. I'm seeing my psychiatrist next week, but right now I just have a general question. For over a year now I have always felt this very strong desire to become intoxicated. Doesn't matter on what substance, I just do not want to feel the way I do. It is especially prominent at night when I am trying to sleep (yet cannot succeed). I disagree with the chronic abuse of drugs, but I can't stop myself from thinking this. Is this normal? Is it ever going to go away? and what can I do to try and help myself right now.

  • 5Social Anxiety Disorder, Depression and Suicidal Thoughts?

    Is it possible to have both? I've got all the symptoms of depression (self harm, suicidal thoughts/plans, loss of interest and motivation, trouble sleeping, feeling worthless) and I'm going to try to make a doctors appointment and get it sorted. But I heard about Social Anxiety Disorder from a friend and googled the symptoms, and it sounded just like me! I get really panicked if I have to do something like go to speak to a teacher or on the phone, and I always rehearse it in my head, get really stressed, and spend ages thinking about how badly I did in the situation afterwards. I like being with my closer, trusted friends; but in the corridors at school or in class I just have my head down and stay quiet to avoid getting noticed. I've had panic attacks in public places because I feel so ugly and inferior to everyone else and get really worked up and paranoid and ... argh, it's hard to explain. When I get really worked up I just feel like I want to die, and I've impulsively ran out into roads/cut myself before, and I'm worried next time I panic I'll be somewhere where I could do myself harm ... I don't want to die, not when I'm calm anyway! :S So yeah, can you have them both at the same time? And what can I do about it? I'd rather not go to a doctor/psychiatrist because I'm really scared of them. I know, I'm pathetic.

  • 8My daughter has been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder. I'm confused....?

    I'm confused about the medication. She is in college and wants to take Celexa . I read the possible side effects and , frankly , are unpleasant . I'm glad she's going for counseling, but do not want to start taking this medicine unless you are at home, where I can keep an eye for potential suicidal thoughts or possible risks of bipolar episodes listed as possible side effects ( or symptoms you have now ) . These side effects are so rare that I should not worry ? I do not want to not feel less overwhelmed and getting better --- but OMG , I have fear for her . Anyone have any idea about this medicine?

  • 10I have been diagnosed with acid reflux disease/GERD. I also have anxiety disorder. I have very weird symptoms.

    I am 40mg of Protonix twice daily. My problem is though, about 3-4 times a day my chest gets these very weird pains in them. More like pressure. And this also is on my throat. They uncomfort lasts about 20 minutes all the way up to 3 hours. Also, about once or twice a day my heart feels like its skipping a major beat. But I feel my pulse and it's okay. Around 85-95 BPM. The uncomfort pretty much comes after I eat, and it feels like there is food maybe in my lower/mid esophogas. But these episodes with my heart feeling like its skipping beats really worries me. My anxiety is not an issue with this problem, I am on .25 mg of Xanax (Alprazolam) for that. But this uncomfort is really bugging me. It also kind of goes up my neck also. Which makes me think heart attack, but I've had every test done for my heart. All my blood work is okay, and my stress echo came back good as well. I just want to know if I'm having spasams in my esophogas or something else? Please help.

  • 11How are you diagnosed with depression/anxiety?

    i've been having all sorts of chest pains and stomach issues since my 2nd child was born....for a good few months after she was born, my docs were trying to convince me to go on meds for post pardom depression....i really didn't want to take anything from what i've heard from other people...so more and more lately, i've been under a lot of stress and i had more chest pains and the doc told me he thinks i'm too stressed out and its causing these pains and he thinks that i have anxiety/depression... he is just my regular doc, not a psychiatrist or anything...how can he tell me "this is what you have and here are some meds to help you sleep at night"...i don't talk to him or tell him anything about my life for him to make that judgement...i would think he would need to know more, wouldn't you?... i just don't know what i should do...i wanna say he knows what he's doing but i've been dealing with this for 16 months now and it seems like he doesn't have enough info to base this on...help!
