What could be effect of anxiety depression in a long run ?

What could be effect of anxiety depression in a long run?? Hi! I am a girl of age 20. At times when I take a lot of worry and stress I start feeling sick with headache , chills, and hopelessness. I try a lot to divert my mind to remain stress-free and I get about 50% success in it. Just one question bothers me- Can this stress lead to other problems in future (say- 15-20 years)? Can you suggest me some ways to reduce this??

Dear ...
Anxiety and stress are shown to directly bring your health down. There is a direct connection between your nervous system and other organs such as stomach, blood vessels, kidneys etc...
So whenever you get stressed your organ functions will shoot up eg.. your stomack will produce more acid giving you acidity or your blood pressure might go high...
You must learn to relax yourself by practicing relaxation techniques such as Yoga Nidra and also practiice postive attitute all the time. Discuss your problems openly to find out solutions.Practice pranayama 20 mins/day

Hi sir, I m 19yr old male. i have been seeing a psychologist (a consultant psychologist, i happen to visit him once in every few months) because of being constantly anxious and for time being depressed too. He prescribed me nexito 10mg tablets primarily and a few other medication too during this long course of time viz; huperzine(when i told him about my upcoming exams), nexito forte, etc. Personally i may not have been able to differentiate between the positive and negative effects of nexito because my anxiety and depression was due to my circumstances (thats what i think but i m confused about its surety). My conditions bettered and my anxiety level dropped. In middle of my visits he prescribed me Nexito forte (clonazepam) which i continued for some time but avoided taking it later when i realised my disturbed sleeping pattern and hypersomnia was related to taking that medication. I visited him again and he then switched me back to Nexito 10mg In between i ve been diagnosed with Hypothoiroidism too and have been prescribed Eltroxin 100mcg Both my endocrinologist and psychologist told that hypothyroidism is also a cause of low energy level and depression but still my psychologist didn t ceased my nexito medication. I take nexito very infrequently and to be honest i have always been irregular with this medicine. i do not like it to be on medication for a reason like anxiety. FYI my mom was the one who made me visit the doc. i never wanted to. As of now i have not talked to my psychologist for a month or two but have long since stopped taking my medication. I didn t asked him because i have told him before too that i want to stop this medication but no use. I m alright and all fine and little bit of anxiety and confusion and depression sometimes moodoffs are as common as common cold itself and i do not think of resolving these with medicines but counselling or self-talk, introspection. Nevertheless, i feel alright. DID I DO WRONG STOPPING THE MEDICATION WITHOUT MY DOC S CONSENT ? THANKS SORRY I MADE THIS QUESTION TOO LONG I m really extremely sorry... Thanks anyways for reading my problem :-)

Hello, I ve had anxiety symptoms for years. When stressed, I d bang my head off of walls and rock to cope. EXCESSIVELY. Chronic migraines from poor food, then due to using corn syrup as a substitute I was thrown into add/adhd medication hell. After these drugs were refused to be taken, as ritalin and like drugs are cocaine-methamphetamine based, from a chemical polar-switch depression was the diagnosis. The depression medications(prozac, imipramine, etc) made me mentally ill- homicidal and suicidal ideologies, etc. I quit taking any all together. All along, (- everything in reviewing now and piecing past skills and memories I couldn t remember due to medications,) is VERY on point with autism spectrum disorder. intellect, pattern recognition, mathematical gifts, etc/ But no doctor will acknowledge due to intellectual and verbal skills. The years of coping have giving me varicose veins from doing multiple suicide jobs and highly illegal working-hour schedule/ I can t find a doctor to aid treating (as my previous practitoner lied for almost ten years about treatment options. And from many years of mistreatment and emotional/ psychological/sexual abuse, I am a PTSD case, who has never had a stable job from these sleep issues and social-anxieties. Can t qualify for ODSP due to lack of a proper practitioner. Do I sue my doctor, -leave this country? Ceratonin levels are uneven, REM cycles are 3- 3 1/2 hours between, and the more I read about the side effects of ritalin-era medications, the more I find a correlation to cardio-vascular issues. Started having them since I was taking these medications, dismissed as anxiety or growing pains when i was 16. I do try to take care of health through diet, but because of this- all my claims are waived as paranoia. anxiety related/ Because I ve coped to communicate, but this doesn t always work. Never had a job for more than a few months, with a cpl exceptions, but saying I m okay to work. I m at a crossroads as to previous neglects and traumas coping undiagnosed or supported through constant homelessness from these symptoms/ what do I do? I don t know where to start- and psychiatry is all about pill pushing-which I m not interested obviously from a past of unaccountability, and mentioned side effects. I ve been almost catatonic for the better part of the last 7 years, but allegedly fine to work at a coffee shop, or factory although when I am on my feet for two long I have extreme, and often dangerous spells of vertigo. All this coping brings migraines from hell- I am resourceful, and now starting to have TMJ type symptoms, or from constant clenching, that I can t prevent. IDK anymore. That s my history. My doctor really sucked, but made enough money giving me magic beans that never helped and are still messing up my life :/ Free-health care isn t what it s cracked up to be when you can t get someone to actually have the time to understand that the psychological/neurological symptoms are impacting my physical health. -I know it was long, But I feel necessary to understand this springboard of progression that overall has not been much in my control. if you have advice on how to get a proper assessment, or to classify this to aid proper-treatment, well that d be a life changer. I wanted to practice accupuncture and assist people with anxiety/autism issues like myself, but I can t even get grounded enough to afford a car let alone career with all these issues compounding. But I m thin and my blood-pressure stats are great. so okay to work. lol

Hi, I was having all kinds of billing problems with my Psychiatrist of 8 years since I went on Medicare in July 2012. I went on disability due to a nerve disease that I have called Peripheral Neuropathy. I went to all the Dr.s when my feet started burning in 2009. In 2010 my neurologist said I had Tarsel Tunnel Syndrome and that I would need releases on both of my feet. In May 2010 I could hardly walk and in the next three months I had surgery on each of my feet. The surgery did not work. At this point I had to find a new neurologist. I was diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy. I had a temporary and then a permanent Spinal Stimulator put in behind the nerves of my spinal chord. This is just my background on how I got to go on Medicare. As I stated in the beginning I m looking for a Dr. who specializes in Addiction Psychiatry. I was prescribed Xanax for my anxiety as well as Zolpidem to help me sleep. I had a death in my family and I was very close to her in April. I have been to two different psychiatrists and both experiences were horrible!! One would not treat me and said I needed re-hab based on the medicines I listed on my profile form. I m 45 and have been struggling for months. I live in Darien, IL and don t know what to do as I need a Dr. to monitor my meds. I have suffered from depression and anxiety since I was 19 and have never gone this long without seeing a psychiatrist!! Can you help!!!!
