Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
hi rachel
neuroscience is related to nervous system of the body.
it is related to nerve ,brain ,its function etc.
anxiety ,mood ,depression are related to psychiatric .
the scope of neuroscience has broadened to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, and medical aspects of the nervous system.
The techniques used by neuroscientists have also expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual nerve cells to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain.
Recent theoretical advances in neuroscience have also been aided by the study of neural networks.

hi. im coming to you on the behalf of my girlfriend who is 20. she deals with anxiety and uses the word depressed a lot. things that get her in these moods seem simple and not worthy of attitude/stress to me. its like if things dont go the exact way that she plans them then she shuts off and goes into all the pessimistic thoughts in her head.

most nights i seem to have a problem sleeping as my heart seems to be beating too fast and once ive set my mind on it it doesn t stop. to begin with i had panic attacks as i smoke marajuana and im quite a stressed individual but now my chest hurts regularly, and when i try fall asleep at night i ll be woken up all of a sudden struggling for breath. even after a walk or just going out with some friends my heart starts to pound, i m really really worried, if i know i can t die because of it i d be so much more relaxed but i m sure it s something more than a panic attack.

my heart is pounding really hard. it s been doing it for about two days now. i have had panic attacks, it doesn t feel like a panic attack. it s kind of scaring me. should i go to the hospital or is it more than likely just a new kind of panic attack that i haven t experienced yet?

I have been having a tightness in my chest and a feeling of heaviness for about 2 hours now. It also feels a little tight in my throat and I feel as though I cannot get as much air in my lunges as usual. This has happened to me before and last time was a few weeks ago when I was on holiday... could this be something to do with the heat? Just before the feeling came on I was eating chocolates - I m wonder if this has affected my sugar levels or blood pressure perhaps. I am trying not to panic as I am wondering is this a panic attack without me realising its one?? Thank you for reading, hope you can help . Sara

I have been taking vyvanse for years now and since i have been in college sometimes i stay up all night to study, sometimes days at a time. I usually take 40mg in the morning and around 5 take another 40 and then around midnight take another 40 and repeat the same thing the next day.I experience a lot of the symptoms of overdose such as stomach pains, hallucinations, rapid heart beat, anxiety, trembling, etc. I did not know that it was so bad for you and i just figured those symptoms were from not sleeping. I have been doing this for almost 3 years now but since i have learned about it i have cut back but i am still nervous about the damage already caused. Are there any long term effects to overdosing frequently?
