How many of you that suffer from Panic, Anxiety and Depression find that their symptoms are worse in the morning and gradually get better towards evening?

@brit I went through a year without a primary. The primary is the key. The ER doctors cannot refer you. Is there a hospital social worker in your local? A thought when you go to the ER.

@merpreb I end up with severe headaches due to the tightness in head/neck/shoulder region. Why I believe it is time for an ortho doc for x-rays. Got to do something. I have OA and can deal with thus. Need to know what is causing all of the pain. Scoliosis does not help either. Poor muscles are stressed which stresses me. I cannot even do my morning routine with of Tai Chi this morning. Whine whine. Trapped in a body that still has some living to do. I would rather know if there is nothing can be done than not delving into things. Tylenol helps very little when the pain gets out of control. SCREAM! Thanks everyone fro allowing me to vent. So many of us here are faced with struggles.

@parus– I hear you. Pain seems to effect us in a way that becomes a vicious circle- like dominoes falling. Every little thing effect another. Can you take something other than Tylenol at home? NSAIDs?

Patti- They keep changing your medication because they are trying to help you. If all your doctors and the ER people say that there they can't find out what is wrong then how can they prescribe medicine for you? Are they pain meds? Medicines are not cures, they are treatments. Not all pain can be treated as well as others. But something is definitely wrong Patti. Go to the ER
They are medications for my mental state. I don't have pain other than what I suffer mentaly. My mental state is awful and the doctors seem to try but so far no luck. I am afraid they will just get tired of me coming in and saying "it didn't work. He usually just acts like "here we go again". Or maybe it is just me thinking I am bothering him. God Bless Patti p.s. going to the ER doesn't help they just draw blood take scans and perscribe "another med". Rather stay with my doctor.

@parus– Good morning! I have scoliosis too. I am not bent over but of course it changes certain things. If I try and zip up my right boot, it's very difficult. My left one is easy. Certain exercises are easier are one side but I find very difficult on the other, etc. I agree, seek an ortho's opinion.
@merpreb Thank you so much for the validation. I am not bent over but have that tale-tail hump at the right shoulder. Has to be an answer.
Yep, I agree. It must be dealt with, @parus.

@brit Are you giving any of the medications time to work? Are you able to take some deep breathes or doing some exercising? It is difficult for doctors to help you when you are all wired. The ER can only due blood work and check vitals. Your condition sounds chronic and the ER can do very little for a chronic condition. They cannot help you if you are in some way out-of-control. There are times we need to try and put forth more effort as there are no magic pills to "fix" things as medications are a type of support for your mental state. I can understand your frustration.

Thank you for explaining a few things I didn't understand. So I will stay with my doctor and hopefully he will find the right medication for me. Thank you for your caring and thoughts. God Bless Patti p.s. I have been taking this new medication for about 2 months now
I know, @parus. It is great that you are passing encouragement on to others now😊

@brit– Medicine alone sometimes doesn't do the trick. Exercise, a balanced diet, sleep all are important.

You are very welcome parus
@hopeful33250– A lot of things in today's medical world don't make sense. Perhaps it will again soon.
Ye, @merpreb, we can hope so👍
I do have a balanced diet but because of my mental situation I really don't have much appetite. I sleep pretty good but the exercise is the main thing I don't do much of because of an arthritit back. I do try to do stretching , things like that and that does help. Thanks for caring God Bless Patti
