Today i have cried on a average 3 times, mainly my children are stressing me out. I love them very much. I am trying to stay calm relaxed and having a difficult time with it. Although i did feel better afterwards an emotional release if u wanna call it that. I want to be strong. I have a wonderful husband and for the most part we get along really well. What is wrong with me if i go to the doc and tell him these things he's going to prescribe more meds and tell me i'm only taking them to deal with stress and book another appointment. I think that i am going to go to a new doc that would be more helpful and less hesitant to fond out what is going on. I feel like an emotional wreck and i shouldn;t be like this i have on 10mg on cipralex a days for months now some days good and somedays not so good. I know that everyday can;t be perfect. Some days hit me harder not sure why? There is no particular triggers that i have yet to be able to idenify other than my children almost wanting to pulll my hair out. Not literally. anyway just venting a little thanks to anyone who reponds Twiggy2

Hi Twiggy,
Easter has to be tough on a Mum, Kids are always going to make it as hard as possible, just like we did when we were their age,

If you know in yourself that something else is wrong, and you have some very tangable evidence for this, then i would be looking everywhere for information, and learning about how the body works, and i don't mean just the basic's, get some indepth stuff ie, if you're having a particular headache and there are other symptoms, go out and find some stuff on neurology, what i am saying take control of your whole condition, by learning about the area's it affecting

If your Doctor diagnosed anxiety or depression at the start, when you tried to explain otherwise, then it's unlikely he/she is going to change his/her mind, but before you see another Doc, i would do some learning yourself, so you have suggestions for what tests etc you may need, write it all down, and at first leave Anxiety/depression off the list, keep each symptom seperate, you could also do a list for yourself, then try to link them

it took me almost 6 years and several Doc's to figure it wasn't anxiety,over anxiety, there was a very real physical problem, only then did they start looking else where

Your Crying is probably a build up of stress related to your search to find what is really wrong, i know its frustrating, but by being honest with yourself and doing the right research, will help a great deal in finding a solution
Maybe have a word with your kid,s and arrange an hour a day where they will behave a you can have this hour to just relax,

Thank you for your response. We all have minor colds so that plays on everyones irratability i understand that. That was what i was origanlly diagnosed with both actually. I have done some research on the topics i kinda understand but there is probably more to it. May i ask what you were diagnosed with, sometime i feel that i to have been misdiagnosed and maybe my psychologist does not want to admit it don't know but i will continue to research until i find answers.Twiggy2

Hi Twiggy,
So far, i have a severe pinched cervical nerve, that affects the suboccipital muscles, the supraorbital nerve, i have myofacial pain, Slight temporary palsy, muscle waste on the left side, eye pain, lump under ear, i walk into things, fall over, get dizzy a lot, bad memory after this began, and about two pages of other stuff, pretty much it was my Psychologist who sent me back to the Doc, telling him to get off his behind, because she considered my Psychological condition was based upon the physical condition, hense, they looked a little deeper and found a couple of things,

Have a look at this site, www.round-earth.com and have a look at the drawings of muscles and read about head pain caused by these muscles, Doctors do jump on the anxiety depression thing a bit quick sometimes, forgetting that many of the same symptoms are related to other conditions, but you need to be honest first, then you can demand more from your Doc's, if theres a reason for your anxiety, then it may just be that, but theres also the point that the anxiety will cause a stress that affects other areas of your body, weakening an already weak point and then you may have 2 problems feeding off each other

If you get time twiggy, make a list of all your symptoms, you can email them to me, and i will have a look at them, may help, up to you, my email is up there somewhere

Hope this helps

Hi Twiggy,
I am going to take a guess here with what you have described as your symptoms, theres not much to go on, but maybe you can add or clarify to what i suggest,

If there is anything, i would think it may be a sinus cavity problem, perhaps a mild infection that has lingered about or perhaps an over active lacrimal gland, if you have cried a lot over a long period, then it could have an impact on both Sinus and Lacrimal gland, and perhaps causing headaches, as well as the pain in the neck and shoulders

It's worthy having a look at the web site i posted above, its only topic is the muscles of the neck, the nerves and where the pain centres are for these muscles and nerves,

if you experienced a bad period of anxiety or depression at some point, then it is possible also that your posture has been altered, and the nerves have had to find a new path, which helps keep you in a cycle, that otherwise you may no longer have any issues to resolve,

It's worth remembering that the nerves in the cervical region, cover a large part of you head and face, so a pinched nerve in the cervical region can impact greatly on your face, your sinus, your eyes and of course, they are a big player in headaches

Hope this helps, do check out that site,

I went to the emerg this morning about the vision problem and the headaches, again i was sent with a prescrition for ibirophin but cannot really afford to get it filled so i have naprosyn instead which is like the same, they send it is tension muscle contraction type headahces and is nothing to be concerned with and to follow up with my family doc asap. SO we will see if this helps any the blurred vision mostly is caused because i need prescription type glasses my left eye is the worst again cannot afford to get scripted glasses so that to can be causing my headaches because i strain to see things. Thank for listening take care Twiggy2

Twiggy,  I just left a post for you on your other thread about your eye problems.  If it is a matter of you needing glasses and cant afford them I think that you can call the Samaritan Center and sign up with them they help pay for things like that and also dental exams.  Also Division of Family Services should be able to give you a list of agencies that will help pay for glasses and doctors appointments if you have a low income.  Maybe you can check into it.  Take care
