Bilateral neck pain when anxious or slept in bad posture. Especially depression amplifies it. What causes such thing? Male, 31

That's a complex?: So I'll try to simplify. Muscle tension is the result of feeling uptight. When you sleep, you may position yourself in an awkward way. If you are depressed, you may sleep more often, or less often than usual, so you way position yourself in ways that you don't when you are feeling good. Depression also increases sensitivity to pain at the level of the brain. Some medical issues worsen these thing ...Read more

Can depression make you sick like headaches, stomach pain, neck pain tired all the time?

Depression: Often depression can manifest in physical symptoms, which should be checked by your GP. If no problems are found by the GP, have you considered psychotherapy? Meds take the edge off symptoms, but by themselves do not solve problems. The real problem solving of emotional issues takes place in the psychotherapist's consulting room. ...Read more

Can anxiety (specifically anxiety about dizziness) cause dizziness when bending head and neck over or in different directions? Doc says not bppv.

Possibly: Balance and dizziness issues are related to 3 general areas. There is inner ear input, visual input, and musculoskeletal input. A problem in any area can cause confusing signals to your brain and make you feel dizzy. In your case, it could be another inner ear problem- not bppv according to your md- or may be related to cervical (neck) musculoskeletal issues. ...Read more

19 yrs, female. Depression and anxiety. Once so stressed, the vessel inside the left neck constricted for a very quick sec. What happened?

Are you sure it was?: Are you sure it was a blood vessel? It would make more sense for it to be a muscle, like the platysma. This is a muscle under our chin, it attaches to the collarbone. It could contract briefly. Some people can make it contract for amusement.

No matter what it was, this will probably be ok. Can't think of anything bad that does this. ...Read more

I have been suffering with a stiff neck for months I have a lot of stress and depression? But I also noticed some swelling under my chin?

Anxiety: Some people under stress will not sleep well and wind up with a stiff neck, but this may not be the cause. Swelling under the chin is a different matter and you should be examined by a doctor for this. With stress and depression it might also be of benefit to see a counselor (therapist, minister, good friend). ...Read more

After 3 month of medicin and 2 months whitout any medicin my TSH is 3.34. Is the hypotiroid cured? Now I have depression and in the neck.

Whatever the: Abnormality was, it has apparently gone back to normal. The fact however that you had hypothyroidism and are still experiencing depression, it would be my preference if it were me to have a free and total t3 (liothyronine) and a free and total T4 drawn. I know there are many clinicians would disagree with me on this, but my preference is to go with the patients symptomatology. Some people have subclinical hypothyroidism which can cause depression and which still requires treatment with low-dose thyroid in spite of a normal TSH level.

Frequent night sweats did have swollen neck nodes onto insomnia chest flutters appetite loss etc diag depression cita 20mg all good part from sweats?

Night sweat: Your question is not clear but I am guessing your are asking about why you have " swollen lymph node, night sweat, insomnia, loss of appetite"; depression can explain insomnia, loss of appetite, but it does not explain, night sweat and enlarged lymph nodes. Enlarged nodes and night sweat can be from hiv, tb, lymphoma etc., see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more
