  • 2Does this sound like an Anxiety Disorder?

    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.

  • 3Does this sound like anxiety OR depression?

    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 .

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 .

  • 7I 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.

  • 9Can i have an anxiety disorder and depression at the same time?

    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 !
