I am scared of getting a blood test, what should I do?

I went to my doctor yesterday, he thinks I may have a thyroid problem and wants to send me do blood tests. But I am afraid of doing it. I have always hated the sight of blood even seeing it on TV is too much for me. and just the idea of getting a needle in me drives me out of my mind. i am afraid when they needle me I’ll freak out and run or faint. Thinking of skipping the blood test. Is there something I can do. thanks

I have been feeling lots of stress and anxiety lately and experience hip joint problems?

Hi. I am a 24 year old female and I have been feeling lots of stress and anxiety lately. I study during the day and work during the evenings. My question is I have been feeling pops and clicks at my hip joints when I move my hip and legs sideways and turn. It is not pain more like a funny light precise sensation. My joints at the elbows also seem to do the same thing sometimes. Could this be the signs of a problem? This worries me a lot.

I suffer from Anxiety Disorder, could my multiple panic attacks cause adrenal fatigue?

I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder and am having multiple severe panic attacks a day. I am currently taking Zoloft 100mg which isn’t making a difference. But on top of that I’ve been becoming significantly more fatigued and exhausted during the day doing day to day tasks. I’ve been gaining weight and am struggling to shed the kilos I’ve put on.
My question is could my multiple panic attacks a day be causing adrenal fatigue?

I experience severe headaches and vomiting and I get deja vu, is it Aura or Epilepsy?

Hi I just need an opinion, the neurologist suggested amitriptyline or Sodium Valproate. She said either option would be fine. I’m on 150 mg zoloft so would need to be on a very low dose of either. The migraines are most likely related to my period so I’m also on the mini pill (cerazette), I experience severe headaches and vomiting and I get deja vu but they ruled out epilepsy and just said it’s aura.I’m nervous about trying meds. I tried propranolol but it made me depressed and didn’t work.

I feel a slight fluttering on my lower left side, pregnancy test all negative, please advise?

I am 52 years old and stop having my period a year ago. But for the last 2 weeks I’ve felt that butterfly feeling you get when you first feel a baby kick. If I look hard enough I can sometimes see a jump in my stomach Its off and on most days especially at night. I’ve had 2 children and swear it feels exactly the same. I’ve taken 3 home pregnancy test and all were negative. The slight fluttering is on my lower left side just above the bikini line and below the belly button. What could this be? I’m also on Adderal and I saw online that can cause false negative results. Also about 2 months ago I did have some slight bloody discharge for a few days but not a real period. Went to a clinic to be check for Std. Which was negative.

I think I have onychophagia, I thought I could stop this, please advise?

I think i have onychophagia (?). I’ve mostly stopped biting my nails on my hands. My problem is my toes, and that i’ve graduated to using tools. pocket knife, trimming scissors…

I’ve basically removed the nails from 7 toes. When it heals into a faux nail (hard skin), I rip that right off. I don’t disinfect or bandage or anything, I just put socks right over it and go to work. I don’t know how i haven’t got a major infection by now.

What do I need to do. It hurts, but that doesn’t stop me. I stopped on my hands, i thought i could stop this. I can’t.

I had a seizure two days in a row, I am prescribed Xanex?

Ok I’ve been prescribed xanex for a few months now and when I ran out I had a seizure two days in a row. Now I haven’t touched them in over a week, I think my body has completely detoxed from the medication. However, I have severe anxiety and am able to refill my script, if I take them every 3 days rather than every day do you think I’ll protect myself from having to deal with seizures or withdrawal from it again? Please help!
