Extreme sensitivity to repetitive noises like loud bass. Cant sleep with it even quiet. Panic attacks and anxiety feelings. Cause/diagnosis/treatment?

Bodily reaction: Your may be responding in an exaggerated manner, but most people have a somewhat negative reaction to obnoxious bass sounds when they're wanting to sleep. Our bodies respond with a sympathetic nervous system reaction, which includes rapid heart beat and anxiety. Sleep in a quiet room or try earplugs. ...Read more

I resisted an OCD thought and feel scared. Doing erp therapy. Does this sound like i'm making progress?

I resisted an OCD thought and feel scared. Doing erp therapy. Does this sound like i'm making progress?

What do you think?: I imagine you think you are, but that you are afraid you might be wrong. This would be a fine topic to discuss with your therapist. It might advance your treatment. That would change the moment into one for confidence instead of fear. Wouldn't that be nice? It also might help your therapy to readjust the speed so that you'd feel a bit less scared as you progress. That would be fine, too. Best! ...Read more

Need smthg for severe panic when flying, involuntary shaking, body pain, irtnl fear. Xanex numbs body not mind. Dr. suggested Lexotanil. 20 hr flight?

Need smthg for severe panic when flying, involuntary shaking, body pain, irtnl fear. Xanex numbs body not mind. Dr. suggested Lexotanil. 20 hr flight?

Calm flight: Lexotanil is similar to Xanax but may be worth a try. Ask your doctor about Buspar (buspirone) for anxiety, short-acting. An eye mask may also help to calm and sleep. Avoid caffeine the day before until you've landed as it will keep you awake and heighten anxiety. Listen to "sleep music" or whatever soothing sounds you prefer on youtube. Distract yourself with pleasant reading and images. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Diagnosed advanced sleep phase disorder. Healthy, age 35. Light therapy helping. Could i be bipolar? I feel happier w/light therapy, more energized

Bipolar?: Bi means 2 and polar is about ends. Bipolar folks swing between being manic (hyper) and depressed in various ratios. The same biochemistry can lead to feeling clear thinking and happy to feeling anxious depending on the thoughts that accompany the feelings. Please see your doc for a hormone checkup and then maybe use the book feeling good by david burns. Bipolar is overused today. Peace! ...Read more

I feel very slurred, slurred words, thoughts, imaginations and even dreams seem slurred. Could hypnotherapy or isochronic tones be the cause?

I feel very slurred, slurred words, thoughts, imaginations and even dreams seem slurred.  Could hypnotherapy or isochronic tones be the cause?

Slurred?: It sounds like you feel very slowed down, but "slurred" words and thoughts can also come from using alcohol or various other drugs. Please talk with the doctor prescribing your citalopram about this. Stop using the isochronic tones. If done by a licensed and well-trained professional, hypnotherapy is not likely to have effects like these. If not working with a psychiatrist, please do so. ...Read more

Nerves too sensitized to take a shower or exercise, messages, listen to music. These activities spur acute panic attacks. No phobias. Is this depression

Nerves too sensitized to take a shower or exercise, messages, listen to music. These activities spur acute panic attacks. No phobias. Is this depression

Panic: Most people who experience panic attacks are hypersensitive to sensations/activities/food & drinks that mimic panic sensations such as hot showers, caffeine, vigorous exercise etc. This is more symptomatic of anxiety and panic, not depression. Cognitive behavioral therapy is meant to break the association between thoughts, panic (fear response), and physical sensations that we all experience. ...Read more

I have severe severe social anxiety, stomach pains, racing mild paranoid thoughts, crippling anxiety. Would weed help me along w/.25 of klonopin (clonazepam)?

I have severe severe social anxiety, stomach pains, racing mild paranoid thoughts, crippling anxiety. Would weed help me along w/.25 of klonopin (clonazepam)?

No: Pot is contraindicated in social anxiety and it makes it worse. Also it is contraindicated in paranoid states. Klonopin (clonazepam) at the current dose is insufficient for sad. You should be on an antidepressant for the sad, possibly a low dose second generation atypical antipsychotic and a higher dose of Klonopin (clonazepam) and the pot must go! you need psychotherapy also.!best wishes. ...Read more

Very outgoing person, leader, handle multiple projects but extreme anxiety at times when formal presentations req.Why, loraz/ambien bad side ?

Well: Both of these medications can lead to tolerance. It can become easy to fall back on them more and more when anxious. There are a series of unhealthy side effects that can occur with Ambien (zolpidem) (like sleep walking, sleep eating & even driving a vehicle while asleep). It is only meant for short term use. Have you looked into cognitive behavioral therapy or other meds? ...Read more
