Q: 

anxiety symptoms and possible hypoglycemia ?

A: Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you. You seem concerned about the symptoms of anxiety, depression and agoraphobia in your partner. You fear that the symptoms might be due to hypoglycemia and not anxiety as she has not benefitted much from the treatment for anxiety.

If symptoms are relieved as the...


Q: 

Can neck injury cause anxiety symptoms?

A: Hi Andrew, You may be right on both counts. Pain can cause anxiety and anxiety can worsen symptoms of pain. Even the anticipation of having pain can cause anxiety. Did the physician say that your injury to your neck would be helped by surgery? Did he suggest which excercises to avoid? It seems to me that if you have an injury like you described that fixing it may be good idea. From what you said excercises causes the pain to return and also the anxiety. Rather than avoid excercise to avoid pain and anxiety look into a remedy for your injury. Thanks for the reply. Actually, the doctor said that based on my age and the relatively mild severity...

Q: 

anxiety symptoms vs. vaso-vagal response

A: er, sorry can''t answer your question directly, but I''ve fainted, in the past, from blood draws and I have no phobia to blood draws. I think the short answer will be along the lines that syncope and anxiety are not necessarily related, they operate on different aspects of the physiology, even if there is overlap. This may not really be a psychology question but a physiology question, so hopefully one of the helpful mefi Dr''s will pop in and clear things up. The wiki has some interesting background into on fainting...

Q: 

anxiety symptoms vs cardiac symptoms?

A: Hi there -- FIrst, there is a strong likelihood this is mostly anxiety-related; second, it is not all in your head. So... Most of the symptoms you describe do not sound cardiac-related, and this is borne out by your cardio exams. Sharp, stabbing pains are almost never cardiac in nature. The pain pathway involving the left armpit, shoulder, arm and hand is one that is sometimes traveled by cardiac pain but more often it is the ulnar aspect affected, the outer part of the arm, down to the pinkie finger and is aching in nature. Pains you have, plus those in the neck, eyes and head, are often seen in conjunction with the radial pain you describe, and this is equally often GI caused and nerve-mediated. Both these possibilities should be...


Q: 

anxiety symptoms after smoking pot?

A: Hello, mytokioromancee, I''m sorry that you''ve been having such a miserable time. The teenage years can be very difficult, as you''ve been experiencing, and as your mom tried to reassure you. First, it would be exceedingly rare for a person to go to bed anxious and wake up "crazy." You are also too young to be considered to have schizophrenia.

If you were allergic to something, your friends would not ask you to use it. Consider yourself "allergic" to smoking pot, and ask your friends to respect that. Don''t stay around for the second-hand smoke, either. When a person develops an
