Yes, it can but its also better to rule out other disorders especially a thyroid related one.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello. I have not been able to sleep or eat due to nightmares. Food makes me sick. I have not eaten for 2 weeks and have only slept 6 hours this week. I went to the doctor and they told me that this was normal and gave me medicine. The medicine makes me sick also.

Hi, i am 15 years young :P... nearly 16. I m 4.11 or 5ft. I ve been this like since 2 years short like really short my sisters are taller just me!!! anyways i weigh about 7 and a half stones i think. Anyways moving on i ve been masturbating for like 2 years since i was 13 ready to be 14. Mainly from using the shower head into massage mode down there.... (clitros) :/ Well i ve always wanted to stop,stop and stop but no i just wouldn t. I was really healthy well not healthy you know just not i ll like i always am recently. I don t know if anything is related and making sense!?!?!!? I ve been suffering from insominia for quiet a while now but it s gone better my doctor offered me to go to psychiatrist but i said no (she doesn t know this)... She kept on asking me what i was stressed but i didn t know myself so i made some story up! Well it was true but i wasn t stressed over that! I think it s making me ill...?? i don t know but i want to stop!!!! I ve been also suffering from hayfever/allergy for a year but i ve gone better with medication. But when ever i come out of the shower after masturabting i start sneezing and wheezing :( I m also having memory problems... (my doctor doesn t know this aswell) She said she couldn t sort out so many problems at once! So i didn t bother She s pathetic. :/ I forgot things e.g. if i washed the plate i won t remember if i washed it or not or what i did few mins ago unless i try to remember it! My long term memory is really really good i remember things when i was 5/6 years old... my sisters don t even remember that. But my short term memory is really bad!! I have so many other problems but i know their will be no conclusion to it! I also think i have herps or gential warts... but i m not since i haven t got it cheacked!! And don t intend to. I don t really care about much of my problems but i want my memory to stay as good as it was before and i don t want to be stressed! Well im not but i get stressed if someone tells me like i m ill! Who wouldn t... but i just get stressed extra!! Okay did i waste your time?? What can i do??? Thank You x
