I suffer from agoraphobia, do not leave home alone. Now depressed after many stressful events.Starting new meds soon. Psychotherapy or anxiety speclst?

A psychotherapist: Who specializes in treating anxiety would be an anxiety specialist. I don't understand the distinction you're asking about. Do you have anxiety specialists who are not psychotherapists or psychologists where you live? Any competent mental health professional should be able to help with both anxiety and depression. Cognitive behavioral therapy would work for either one. ...Read more

I have been told I have lymphangitis. Is this something treatable at home?

I have been told I have lymphangitis. Is this something treatable at home?

No.: Lymphangitis is an acute inflammation and/or infection of the lymph glands. Lymphatic vessels drain all areas of the body and if there is an infection present, it will drain to local lymph nodes via lymphatic vessels. But lymphangiitis usually means a serious infection where the vessels themselves are spreading infection and could become sepsis (blood-borne). Needs antibiotic. See your doc. ...Read more

If they found an isolated h. Pylori in my last scoping. Should that be treated or I should I just leave it alone? The last endoscopy was a year ago?

If persistent, please ask your doctor to prescribe a drug combination different than your initial regimen--your h.Pylori may be resistant to the first antibiotics used. Untreated h.Pylori may increase your risk of ulceration as well as of stomach cancer. ...Read more

I have history of panic attacks i keep clonazepam .25 with me, i haven't taken it since 4 months but i can't leave home without keeping it how to get rid?

I have history of panic attacks i keep clonazepam .25 with me, i haven't taken it since 4 months but i can't leave home without keeping it how to get rid?

It's the thought: Carrying the pill with you affords a sense of security that likely helps to prevent panic attacks. Of course, it's not the pill itself, but the thought that it's there to help if you happen to need it. If you want to drop the pill, consider tapping away the anxiety of leaving home without it. See my book energy tapping or visit www.Energypsych.Com for readings on how to use tapping. ...Read more

Hi, I stepped on a piece of glass and was wondering what to do; should I try to get it out or should I leave it alone for now (it is not very painful)?

Glass in foot: If you know it's a very small piece & not deeply imbedded, you can remove it; cleanse the wound; dress it (antibiotic ointment + sterile covering). If there's any doubt as to size, go to er where they may take radiograph to determine size & depth; er is also equipped to deal with significant bleed if glass is preventing artery from flowing freely. Make certain tetanus booster is up-to-date. ...Read more
