My head constantly feels pressurized, like the pressure is building up (doesn't hurt, just extremely unconfortable and never ends has been going on for 6+ months now), my eyes feel like they are either going to go cross-eyed or sink into my head (left eye feels cock eyed and right feels corss eyed) Extreme depersonalization, I feel as if I am in a dark dream, everything feels so fake, I can tell that its reality it just doesn't "feel" like reality. Because of this "brain fog" I cannot think and I feel like I am retarded sometimes. I have lost all mental clarity that I ever had and my sense of smell / taste (its not lost just extremely dulled) Like is said all of this has been going on for 6+ months and I have been suffering from mild depression because of this. I am NOT on any medication and I am only 19 years old with no health insurance. I feel like a 90 year old man because of these symptoms including others ranging from my body hurting / feeling weak, breaking out in cold / hot sweat spontaneously, feeling dizzy / faint, and nauseas 70-100% of the time. If this anxiety than how come it happens when nothing negative / stressful happens? It just happens out of no where no matter what I am doing. Please tell me if you can relate / help and will the "brain fog" ever go away and my mental clarity ever come back? Please Help.. Thank you! . P.S. All the mentioned symptoms get considerably worse when the head pressure intensifies and sometimes I get sharp brain pains (yes brain pains not head pains, they feel very deep) My head also feels very heavy at times as if I have a major cold.
I'm usually an extremely extroverted person who just says things to make people laugh. But, now, I don't feel good about myself, so I'm not confident in what I say. I don't say the things I normally would, and I don't have that "flow" when I talk. I think that's depression, but then when I'm talking to people, it doesn't feel natural... I'm unable to carry out a normal, flowing conversation. I don't feel good, and sometimes I find myself thinking while talking, trying to make sure I say the right thing. I'm even prepping myself when I'm not talking, for future events. Is this anxiety, or just part of the depression? I'm not sure I have anxiety, because I'm not afraid to talk to people... I just don't feel good about who I am right now, which in turn makes me feel unconfident about what I say and any conversation I have feels so boring because I'm not being who I really am. Any insight would be appreciated (and help as to how to solve it too, if you have any suggestions! :) Thanks.
I have 16 years of age. I think I have anxiety / depression . :/ I had some problems with my dad and his girlfriend and my ex boyfriend . I started going to a therapist last week and back again in a week . I wanted to see if you think I have this or not . Or if I should even take her . Anxiety / Depression Symptoms [ ? ] - - My ' jerks ' body sometimes and I can not control . Like my leg randomly just for a second tremor . / As muscle spasms . 'I'm always tired , always . In the middle of the class could not sleep because I'm so tired . - I have lately been having horrible dreams that keep me from sleeping . - Sometimes chest hurts. As someone who sits on me. - I panic and start to mourn with simple tasks or things I can not control . As before a tennis match that I am usually cry because my nerves are terrified . And driving, I hate it. Before my first day at the wheel , I woke up and was crying her eyes out , begging not to go. - The fear of snakes / lose many significant . - Do not want to do anything . I'd rather just stay home and sleep or get on the computer . - I do not like making decisions. - Feeling guilty about everything . - Not very hungry . - Having headaches more often. What do you think ? :/
hyperactive fast talking (rather than slow down) , easily stressed by very small things, the low attention span and obsessive about detail and ordinary things, always shy and did not want to make eye contact with people , permanent circles dark under the eyes , constant agitation , low weight , high metabolism (probably because of concern ) , the dream ' unrefreshing ' poor , poor appetite , emetophobia ( fear of nausea / vomiting including paranoia about whether someone has " tampered " with food and drink ) , poor hygiene and not wanting to bother with physical appearance , inability to " disconnect "or calm EVER and a general feeling that you want to get only once each day . If it is mainly a depression , I wonder if any of you who have been prescribed different antidepressants know of one that is an excellent choice for these symptoms .
One of my friends seems depressed a lot and cares about school and work, but also may have OCD since overanalyzes things a lot and is very careful . What to do in a situation where they are affected by anxiety , worry and depression . If anyone can give some advice or suggestions to arrest or reverse the symptoms of anxiety , depression and stress . It would be helpful ..
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.
I have 18 years and I feel emotionless and numb , my mind feels anything at all , all day I feel a little dizzy happy "everything will be fine , you have bipolar , you just have anxiety and depression " , but then sometimes when I read on the Internet about bipolar I think to myself "my God, I think I have bipolar " I'm constantly looking on the internet to feel better , but sometimes back fire and makes me think I'm back mad , I get very disturbing thoughts about my mother , niece and any member of my family that I did not want to discuss .. Do I have bipolar disorder or is just anxiety and depression? Currently I'm on antidepressants
Hello , this is my first time asking a question , I just wanted to know if I can be depressed and have an anxiety disorder at the same time ? Basically , I've been going to my new counselor for a few weeks , mainly for my anxiety and other issues such as self esteem and confidence . Anyway , we often talk about my anxiety and all that is being in social situations . My counselor also said I have mild to moderate OCD you know it's an anxiety thing . Anyway , I am often concerned about many different things. In my last session , briefly mentioned that i may be depressed . It is not a surprise because I thought I've been depressed for several years . I have very low moods, feelings worthlesness and hopelessness , worthlessness , tired all the time , not interested in anything I liked , and many , almost all symptoms of depression . But the thing is that I'm confused about co - ocurring depression with anxiety . This is because , I thought depression that I do not care , do not want to get up in the morning (which is true for me personally ) . But , when I am extremely anxious about certain things and how people see me ect . So , how I can have both? Probably when I'm anxious some stuff I care , so then there is depression ? Or can my general mood be depressed, and anxious moments when it appears anxiety disorder ? Sorry if I'm rambling , I hope I have explained well, I have 16 years and only needs some explanation , please ? Thank you !
I went to the doctor with my mom and told her that I feel
