Tue, Jul 2 10:37am · Anxiety and Depression in Depression & Anxiety

I am at a fork in the road. I do suffer from depression which started when I was first diagnosed with lung cancer and copd in 2011. I started seeing a psychologist, every so often and then during the holidays I would get a little sadder so was put on a low dosage of….??? Since then been up and down but never so bad that I could not get up, get going, go out and do things with my family. Well now the next thing is I started in December of waking up with getting the chills and then start shaking. This would last just a few minutes. Now am to the point of it still happening , having 2 or 3 of these episodes in a day or sometimes none at all. I have had a MRI and a EEG and everything is fine…… so why the chills. Getting counseling was mentioned for anxiety but my daughter thinks going to a psychiatrist would be better then seeing my counselor. I think I would be better off seeing my counselor. How do I decide which one would be better for me. I also want to find out if my thyroid is functioning properly. Could this be a possibility? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have been having tremors since december……… starts out feeling the chills , like you said inside, and then I go to the shakes….. Yesterday I had five of them. They started during the nite and now in the morning. Had a mri that was fine, now have an eeg next week. The neurogologist mentioned something about anxiety attacks. If nothing shows up on the eeg might have to check in that plus I want more information if my thyroid is involved. Good luck to you ..

Good morning to everyone. I don't mind the mri's I think I even fell asleep during this one, if you can believe that. Anyway that came out all fine, my brain was empty so no problems!!!! As for the ct scan of my lungs….. well something in my lower left lung is changing so its time for them to start watching that more closely. I have to go back again to mayo for an eeg but I really don't think that's going to show anything. I think I am becoming my own dr as now I am looking up info on thyroids to see if that might be causing my shakes. Will ask the neurologist next week when I am there. Hope everyone is keeping their spirits up, with the help of prayers, family and friends. We all need those in this time of our lives. Hugs to you all. Joan

Fri, Jun 21 11:06am · Thyroid Problems in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Hi, I have a question,,,,,,, since December I have these episodes in the mornings where I start getting like chills and then I go to big time shaking. This doesn't last long and only have a mild headache afterwards…… my question is this, could my thyroid be causing this. It has been a little low one time and then next time was in the normal range again. Thursday morning I had like 5 episodes of this….. none this morning. I had a mri done. nothing showed up and also saw a neurologist and he has scheduled a eeg next week. This was done at mayo. I am also dealing with lung cancer and copd. Life is a box of chocolates, never know what you are going to get!!!!! I am also diabetic. Prayers for everyone and best of luck. Joan (Sakota)

Friday time to go over to mayo for my ct scan for adenocarcinoma of the lung. And always time to worry about the outcome. Am having a mri of the brain this time too so lots to think about. Also just got over a bout of pneumonia. Did a lot of coughing and loss of sleep. Been stable with my lungs lately but always wonder when it’s going to end. Blessings and prayers to each of you.

Hi merry. Been so much going on with me. First off still have the tremors now have appts at mayo for blood work Ct scan for my lung cancer and mri for the tremors. Depending on results from mri will depend whether I go see a neurologist And I had another biopsy from my face. And that came back as skin cell cancer again that’s number 9 I think. These darn hills are getting harder to climb and don’t know how many more I can do. Hope you are doing ok. I need to get back in here.

How do people know how much to take and if they are on other medications will that affect you. Who do you go talk to to get your answers from a professional. I am too “chicken” to try it without some form of medical guidance for both long cancer and spinal stenosis.
