Jul 19, 2018 · Anxiety and Panic Attacks in Depression & Anxiety

I don't believe this is the same thing as depression.

Jul 19, 2018 · Anxiety and Panic Attacks in Depression & Anxiety

I'm here in Iowa all my life but I feel like a twin to you in some ways. I think of dying alone and don't feel like I have much family emotional support. I don't want to take habit forming drugs. Between the lonliness of being alone in addition to what you're saying, doctors have put me on antidepressants for a few years about two years ago. I had a number of car accidents, which I think were due to slowed reactions to situations. I refuse to take medications for this. I think the fear of dying alone and my loneliness are really the same thing. I haven't had any accidents since getting off the oppiods and antidepressants.

Go to different doctors until someone listens.

Mar 21, 2018 · CPAP Intolerance in Sleep Health

I had two sleep studies and I also tried two different cpap masks at home. I had some of the same experience. I slept less and was more stressed with the mask. It would blow air in my eyes and at times would wake me up with a big gust of air making my cheeks blow out like a chip monk with nuts in its cheeks. It also squealed and woke me up as I rolled over on the hose. I also have to go to the bathroom frequently and every time that I got up, I had to undo the hose and then refasten it again. When the mask with the parts that went to the nostrils would slide over, it would stop my air supply. I have had extensive nose surgery since then for 3 things that could have affected my breathing and should have been looked at prior to sleep apnea tests. Those things were a 90% deviated septum, a swollen turbinate that blocked air, and collapsing nostrils from deteriorated cartilage with aging which required plastic surgery to have the nostrils stay open. I didn't realize I had those conditions and they tell me my nose is still healing so that's all I know for now. I do think I am breathing better than I was.

I have similar reactions to yours. I get allergic to thing the more I use them. Sometimes I can get by eating a certain food and other times that same food can bother me. Most of the "healthy" foods I am told to eat are either worsens one of my other conditions or I am allergic to them. It's so hard to know what to do or what to eat. You're right that there is no giving up so I keep trying.

I hope to have my doctor presrcibe a neuropathy test for me. Due to a friend having neuropathy, I looked up on the Mayo site to learn more about neuropathy. It can cause digestive problems (which I have and they call it IBS and acid reflux); and sleep problems (which I have); extreme touch sensitivity (a lumped up wrinkle in my sheets can cause pain and wake me up); and rheumatoid arthritis pain – mine is osteo-arthritis). I need to get this checked out to see if I've been misdiagnosed.
