Are there other medical conditions that create similar symptoms to those of depression and anxiety?0Nels2012-11-02 22:22:35
I am doing a little research. I have found a considerable amount of overlap in symptoms that are typically diagnosed as depression, anxiety and bi-polar disorder. I have looked into Epstein-Bar Virus, PTSD, Anemia, ADHD, Thyroid, and Sleep Apnea. It is amazing how much the symptoms overlap. I'd like to know if there are other conditions that cause or mimic symptoms of depression and/or anxiety. I would be interested in doing further research.

For me, I usually feel lost inside my head (I know it sounds weird , but it's the only way I can explain it. ) I feel disconnected from my external environment and that my head is clouded with thoughts . This tends to make me feel alone and almost mentally handicapped in the sense that I can not concentrate or achieve motivation. Are these symptoms of what you go through every day ? What are you going through ?

Please HELP/READ. Do I have Anxiety/Depression symptoms?1Radiky Rick 2012-10-22 12:47:02
I know that the doctors sent the boys, but this is scaring me. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am a 22 year old, first suffered anxiety when I went to the emergency room with chest pain, because I think it was a panic attack.The published an electrocardiogram, blood tests, chest X-ray was normal throughout . The ER doctor said it was anxiety. My blood pressure has always been in the normal range. Since then, my BP has shot and always pre-hypertensive MedlinePlus where I always go to the doctors office and when I check my BP at HEB Pharmacy (133/86 something in that range). MedlinePlus 2 months ago I had another panic attack and went with my digestive system. Like no matter how much I eat I can not feel full. My mouth is dry after eating and my burps are very dry without recurrent food he had eaten. My stomach feels also very rare. I have constipation / diarrhea after eating. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also, I feel I'm not sleeping cool. My pulse is always abnormal when I check my putting two fingers down the neck of his always fast at rest and I think irregular heartbeats. My medical school told me that I could have this rare tumor called pheochromacyctoma mortal, but I do not think I have it and I'm sooo afraid of him. Still searching for symptoms online for him and me more scared and worried. My doctor does not think he has the tumor, and do not know why my BP is pre-hypertensive, and tells me that I'm healthy. I'm really scared right now, because if a doctor does not know why now, what? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Sometimes I feel that certain parts of my body feels like a burning sensation like my butt and start to sweat a little. Hand tremors, shaking inside my body and my heart beats a lot when sometimes when I feel calm. Could all of these symptoms are related to anxiety and depression constipation digestive be? My medical school was also mentioned that might have Bipolar 2. My doctor is not worried about my BP but I know I can not just get down to my normal BP. Anxiety can simply do that for you? shoot your blood pressure and never make it go back to normal? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also I have GERD ACID REFLUX alias way before all this and I think it was due to stress caused and I have been experiencing lately either. I feel calm and relaxed, but still do not know why I'm having digestive problems and blood pressure problems. Currently I am not taking any medication. I can exercise at least 1-2 times a week. Sometimes I can not think. I'm doing terrible in school and I can not concentrate. I just want my life back. I'm always thinking about death and I'm always scared and think about the tumor and something happens to me. I have no family history of high blood pressure, diabetes and thyroid problems, sleep not cool. I experience excessive sweating my butt more random than usual. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My doctor told me I might have sleep apnea, so I took a sleep study last night before I went to an ENT specialist and he said he may need surgery or is there another way to do this, but he wants to see results Sleep Study. Sometimes I have racing thoughts while I'm sleeping, and I think I feel anxious in my dreams or something. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My main concern is that it feels good in my appetite and stomach as when as I do not get that fullness and sometimes I feel I have gas and diarrhea after eating or passing gas or get gas. Also chest pains, blood pressure, and hit my heart beats fast sleep and concentration and gives me random hand tremors (Could this be a neurological problem?) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus When I feel anxious and irregular heart Its just all this mental health has made me the way I am, GERD, anxiety / depression. I put a lot of pressure on myself that I'm facing the consequences in my life even worse for me to do the things you used efficiently. I just want to go back to my normal self again but I can not take my GERD away and my anxiety / depression (assuming I have two, but I do not know what I have). Also I have the tingling in restless legs syndrome is Legg? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I do not think the anxiety causes the increase in high blood pressure. Could it be white coat syndrome? Maybe it's because I'm anxious to know what the result of my BP reading be? I mean my BP was normal before all this mess happened anxiety. I hope it's nothing serious. I know you are not doctors, but I am concerned that doctors may be overlooking some things ... I'm worried about my BP. My doctor says I'm healthy, but I'm still not convinced by my pre-hypertensive BP are no medical reasons ... I just started experiencing nervousness in the stomach today and sometimes I feel hungry after eating and sometimes I do not. I really hope it's nothing serious. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus May cause stomach distress, anxiety? Random headaches? Random Sweating? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I just feel like me.
Please Help/Read. Do I have Anxiety/Depression symptoms?0Pietra2012-11-05 10:15:25
I am a 22 year old male, I first suffered anxiety when I went to the ER for chest pain, for I believe it was a panic attack.The ran an EKG, blood tests, Chest X-ray everything came out normal. The ER doctor said it was anxiety. Since then my BP is always Pre-Hypertensive when I always go to the doctors office and when I check my BP at HEB Pharmacy(133/86 something in that range). I think I have digestive problems, like no matter how much I eat I cannot feel fullness. I have constipation/diarrhea. Also, I feel like I am not getting fresh sleep. My pulse is always abnormal when I check it by placing my two fingers by my neck its always fast while at rest and I think irregular heart beats. My school doctor told me that I might have this life threatening RARE tumor called pheochromacyctoma,but she doesn't think I have it and I am soo scared about it. I keep looking up the symptoms online for it and its making me more scared and worried. My PRIMARY care doctor doesn't think I have the tumor, and also doesn't know why my BP is pre-hypertensive, and says I am healthy. I am just really scared right now because if a doctor doesnt know why now, what??? Sometimes I feel like certain parts of my body feel like a burning sensation like my buttocks and I start to sweat a little bit. Hand tremors, my body shakes inside and my heart pounds non stop when sometimes when I feel calm. Could all of these symptoms be anxiety related and the digestive constipation be depression? My school doctor also mentioned I could have BiPolar 2. I also have GERD aka ACID REFLUX way before all of this and I think it was due to stress that caused it and I haven't been experiencing that lately either. I feel calm and relaxed but I still don't know why I am having digestive problems and Blood pressure problems. I am currently not taking any medication as well. I exercise at least 1-2 times a week. Sometimes I cannot think. I am doing terrible in school and I cannot concentrate. I just want to get my life back. I am always thinking about dying and I am just scared and always think about the tumor and something that's wrong with me. I do not have any family history of high BP, diabetes and thyroid problems, I don't get fresh sleep. My doctor said I might have sleep apnea so I am having a Sleep Study done next week. I went to an ENT specialist and he told me I might need surgery or theres another way to do this but he wants to see the results from the Sleep Study. Sometimes I have racing thoughts while I am sleeping and I think I feel anxious in my dreams or something. My main concern is I dont feel right in my appetite and stomach like when I eat I do not get that fullness and I feel gassy sometimes and I have diarrhea right after I eat or pass gas or get gassy. Also chest pains, BP, sleep and concentration. Its just all this mental health has caused me to become the way I am, GERD, ANXIETY/DEPRESSION. I put too much stress onto myself that I am facing the consequences in my life that are making it worse for me to do the things I used to efficiently. I just want to go back to my normal self again but I cant take my GERD away nor my anxiety/depression (assuming I have both but I dont know what I have) I don't think anxiety causes increase in BP that high. Could it be White Coat Syndrome? Maybe is it because I am anxious to know what the result of my BP reading will be? I mean my BP was NORMAL before all of this anxiety mess happened. I hope its nothing serious.

Physical symptoms of depression/anxiety?0yessenia2012-11-05 02:01:46
I'm Bipolar II. My father recently lost his job back in November and now we have no insurance, so I've temporarily gone off meds and stopped seeing my therapist. I was fine for awhile, but now I'm in a... really debilitating depression. One of the symptoms of my anxiety/depression is an unrelenting sick feeling in my stomach. I was just wondering if any of you had any ideas for how to relieve it a bit? Even just temporarily. And also... if you have anything that might cheer me up a bit? Like, I found this cute little comic about depression (I can post the link if you guys ask for it) and it's the only thing that's really made the sick feeling go away. I'm really struggling without my therapist and medication. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I'm scared I'll spend it miserable. (Please don't be judgmental. If you've been depressed you'll understand that it is only a choice to an extent. Sometimes, thoughts/emotions can not be repressed.) Thank you all! And happy holidays. :)
