Check your thyroid status,BP and pulse rate.Hypothyroidism also will have signs like you.Better have a check up with a physician and rule out.If its pure anxiety disorder breathing excercises and anxiolitics might help you.Hope this may help you.

ive been dx with general anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder in the past, I am taking Ativan 1 mg twice dly, I am experiencing mood swings, and wondering if I am bipolar as well, I have researched the bipolar s/s and they do not seem to fit my mood swings.

My friend asked me to look into this, and I haven t found anything so far Basically she thinks these occurrences are anxiety based. But when she was little (5-11 mainly) around the end of the year she would take 3 hours to fall asleep, and 2 hours in to it she would wake up in a panic. She told me she felt like nothing was right that she was near, for instance her blanket was too thick or her bed was too hard and she would throw things because she couldn t find anything right. It has happened hardly ever I guess, but she just wanted to know what this could be. Also, one of these occurrences was the day before a holiday, which is also where she got this idea it is anxiety related
Hi welcome to HCMForum. it is defenitely a psychological problem. usually happens due to some incident occured before a holiday or during night which made her scared of.
I advise her to consult a psychiatrist for diagnosis treatment

Hello I was diagnosed with PCOS a year ago BUT about 3 months before I was diagnosed with it, I was a heavy Marijuana smoker and did loose weight (about 10kg) but then stopped smoking it and of course gained some weight because I got lazy and then was diagnosed with PCOS.. I smoke Marijuana a little bit still because I have an Anxiety disorder and it calms me.. Anyway, I was wondering if smoking weed can possible cause PCOS? Or can it help with PCOS? thanks x
Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that the PCOS is related to the weight gain rather than marijuana. It would be better to have yourself treated for this with the help of an OBGYN while your weight gain will stop by itself. I believe that your anxiety disorder is also related to...
