    I have recently stopped having any sensation of relief at orgasm, I believe it is called ejaculatory anhedonia. I can still ejaculate but there is very little feeling with it. This particular problem started about six months ago and I have been hoping that it would resolve itself. My doctor (who I eventually saw) dismissed it as caused by depression/anxiety and offered no treatment or further investigation. I find this difficult to believe since the start of the depression and anxiety problems was over 15 years ago. I would appreciate any suggestions.

    Find it hard to orgasm

    Hi, I have really bad anxiety. I had cognitive therapy but it didnt really help. I missed exams and had to quit college because i wouldnt go on the bus. The fear is of being sick, i cant go into town, shopping, in the car, on a bus, or be anywhere alone. i used to be a party girl and now at 18, i cant even get on a bus with out feeling sick. Its even stopping me from going to work sometimes because the nauseas feeling wont leave, but then when im at work 9/10 times im fine. My boyfriend thinks anxiety is 'self inflicted' and i know its not, because i wouldnt wish anxiety on anyone. Even having my friends over, i cancel last minute because i get overwhelmed. Loud noises, specific materials, and sounds make me feel sick which ive only recently this year gained. Ive tried stress balls, therapy, distractions, and anti-depressents. Please tell me what else i can do to make me back to the party animal i once was. Thank you Jazmine.

    I'm no expert but I've experienced similar. It is very hard but try not to give in to the fear all the time. You have to accept it, and the remote possibility you may be sick. Try to increase what you do rather than decrease it. If you stop doing things to avoid fear there will be less and less you can do and it will be a vicious circle. Go to parties, eat out, go on buses. Try not to let it limit your life because it won't go away until you face some of these things and realise that actually they are fine.

    I am an 18 year old female who had been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I am also experiencing chest pain that comes when I am stressed. There are other times when I get a sharp pain in my chest and I do not know what it can be linked to when I am not stressed out or anxious about something. Does anyone know what it can be from? Should I be worried that I may have a heart attack? I went to see the doctor and they all say that it is just anxiety, but sometimes I get the pain, and I am not anxious. Help!

    i am so the same and need help but nothing much for mental health

    Hi I'm 16 and I am almost positive I have asperges syndrome. It runs through my family and the symptoms are quite similar with me and my brothers who are diognosed. Because I am a girl it took me a while to realise that I fall under that category but I started noticing it when I hit high school. I also have anxiety and depression, which doesn't help because being in public with lots of people or people I don't know can e very difficult and I just break down or have an anxiety attack. I have been going to the doctor about it but they don't seem to be doing a lot plus I don't wanna keep going back because I hate the doctor. What could I do? Please help it's affected my GCSES and I don't want it to affect my future anymore. Thanks

    I have just been the to the doctors after yet another boil is starting to form on my chin area...I had a huge one around 4 weeks ago..it has left a scar..the doctor has prescribed dermol cream which is a moisturiser and also zineryt..I have also been prescribed tablets for the anxiety this is causing me...I feel so down..the boils are causing the anxiety and vice versa..so its a vicious circle...I used to use quinoderm 10 on my chin..it worked a treat no spots for months at a time! Then it was discontinued and I had to use Panoxyl 10...this caused my skin to dry out too much thus causing blocked pores and hey ho...boils!

    I'm 15, and have been self harming since September last year. In July, I stopped for around 3 months, then after feeling stressed because of friendships and other things, I began again. My parents know, and are being supportive, especially my dad. But my mum dosnt understand, she gets angry and upset when I don't tell her when I have cut (it's too difficult), says comments which hurt me such as "pack it in", "just found out your friend does it, is it the new trend?", and things like that. I love my mum so much, but she really dosnt understand. Tomorrow I have my first camhs appointment. I freaked out, saying I don't want to go etc, and my mum said "well it's either you go tomorrow, or the next cut I see on your arm, I will take you to A&E, then let them section you or do whatever". Im really scared, I can't talk to anybody about this, it's really embarrassing, but I can't stop. I'm also overweight, and I can't control my eating. I try to tell my mum, but she puts it down to me not getting what I want. I try to tell my friends, they don't understand, but I physically can't stop binge eating, and I go all shakey if I haven't eaten for a period of time. I also have anxiety and depression. My anxiety gets really bad sometimes, but I don't tell anyone. As for depression, I just feel sad, tired, and lonely all the time. I don't know what to do anymore. Can somebody just tell me that everything is going to be okay, because I don't know anymore.

    CAHMS really isn't bad honestly it's good but some of the psychiatrist are prïcks which I found at my last one and I self harmed a lot but it wasn't making me feel any better I still do it but rarely. At CAHMS I go to I did my review and they said they were going to continue seeing me with therapy and I later discovered I was going to get a psychiatric review because the reviewer said I need to be put on anti depressants. They are very organised. I know what you mean with the binge eating I do it a lot. I starve myself a lot because I literally hate my body and feel fat ahah but oh well and it doesn't help I'm bloody suicidal but remember this there is nothing to be afraid of they won't tell your parents anything unless they fear you will be in life or death situations and this counts for others bu anything else you can. And if I you get a psychiatrist they probably will tell your parents because they will want more of an insight. I really hope you get better all the luck.

    My boyfriend has had scabies for at least 3 months but it was missed diagnosed as eczema but I haven't gotten any symptoms I have been itchy but that's due to anxiety and I don't know what I should to stay free of them or as a security measure

    If you’re worried….why not contact one of our doctors? You can call us on: 0121 224 8395 or email us today.

    try using virgin oil and apply in for few weeks. Y because when scabies drill a hole into your skin for one reason lay eggs so apply virgin oil is to cover the hole and suffocate the female and then y few weeks is because the eggs will hatch and this too will suffocate. every living thing needs oxygen so when you closed it up how oxygen can deliver to them. bet me virgin oil has fine nano particles so it can penetrate into the hole. The other you can used is methyl ester is even smaller particles.

    Hey im 14 , ive had really bad pani attacks for a while now . during martial arts i get them went i dont think i can do it properly. but then i read this article about anxiety that makes so much sense although it sounds nuts! do not try and fight your anxiety because it will stress you out and make it worse , calm down , anxiety is when someone is hurting for whatever reason and has kept there amotions tied up , let them out , my anxiety first started when my grandad died , but i accepted it and i still have some of the symptoms but ive not had anymore attacks this week , good luck xxx

    Hi, I had this problem for 20 years! For me it was a symptom of anxiety, unfortunately my anxiety was triggered just by talking to people! I avoided many social situations and interactions with people from sheer embarrassment. I also tried beta blockers which did not help. What has helped me, is something that sounds crazy. If i felt my anxiety begin to rise i would try to blush. Yes, because if you try to blush you cannot! I also think therapy can help if, like me, it is a symptom of anxiety.

    I am so glad that inow know others have this problem. I am 27 and since as long as i can remember i have blushed and felt panicky for absolutely no reason. If i stand in a queue in a shop i sometimes have to walk away because i start to feel paniky and go red because there are people behind me. In work i go red when a customer talks to me for no reason.It is really hard and i have also avoided many an occasion for the fear of going red. Im really not sure what to do. I did go to my doctor when i was 17 and she gave me tablets i dont even know what they where, some sort of calmers or something. I dont know if i should go to the doctor or try hypnotherapy or something. If anyone has any advise i would really appreciate it.

    I am starting to have coaching for my anxiety and will be starting anxiety coaching to rebalance anxiety, starting next week. I am scared as i have never really had coaching for my anxiety and wanted to see if anyone could help me or had any advice for anxiety and coaching to help it.

    I've been suffering from anxiety for over a month. I did have an episode of diahorreah during the night when the anxiety started. Since then I have had days when my stools have been formed and others when they have been formed but a bit mushy. I'm now not sure what normal was for me. I am on 2 medications which can cause loose stools - but its really getting me down. I wake up anxious and I get a looser stool than usual. Does anyone think it is a side effect of the anxiety as I can't think of anything else other than my bowel movements.

    Yes! I've had the same issues with chronic anxiety. Try yoga or relaxation techniques. Be with loved ones and close friends. Find the courage to talk to a counselor. Follow your passions and dreams in life and most importantly, give yourself a break. Anxiety is 100% in the mind and only you can change it.

    I have had anxiety and panic attacks for 5 years im am 23 now. Although i can't help you get over your anxiety i hope what i say may help you calm down quicker. First of remember that panic attacks and anxiety are just thoughts, everyone has anxiety and it is normal, remember that nothing bad happened the last time you had a panic attack and nothing is going to happen this time. Also control your breathing try breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth, practice this when you are not feeling panicky as it needs to be a steady in take and outtake try to count to 4 when you breath in and to 4 when you breath out. Also try doing some muscle relaxation there are some great self hypnosis apps you can get and they are truly amazing. I wish you all the luck in the world in getting over your panic attacks :D

    Hi I suffer very badly with anxiety attacks and desperately need to stop this condition, as I am due for two major life changing events in my life: - for the last time I’m going through the IVF and previously I miscarried due to continuous 'anxiety attacks'. As soon as embryos are planted into my body I start thinking ‘ I am going to lose them any minute, now’, that is when and how my severe anxiety attack starts, and keeps coming back, every 5 to 10 minutes. - I have been nominated for a major presentation in front of a group of global directors in London, and I’m afraid that i will have a last minute anxiety attack, resulting in stage fright. Please please help me to overcome this life shattering problem, I’m a prisoner of this condition and is ruining my life. Do you know a recommended professional in the field of ‘stage coach’ or ‘stage fright’ specialists to help me overcome my anxiety attacks for my public speaking role, and presentations to the board? Can the same person also help me with the IVF anxiety attacks? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much for all your help. Best regards Raech

    It definitely gets so much better when I'm not anxious. I don't know why, but when I go to the city doing some stuff, like paying the bills, going to the doctor, etc.. I feel so much better and without anxiety, but once I got home I feel shitty again, thinking about the tremors, with anxiety and low self-esteem. I saw 2 neurologists. The 1st one didn't give me medication because he told me that I didn't need that, The second one prescribed me Inderal 10mg 3x a day. It didn't work. So, on my second appointment He improved the dosage to 20mg 3x a day. It didn't work again. So, I tried to take 40mg 3x day. Still didn't work, No improvements or side effects. He also gave me Alprazolam 0.25mg to take only on stressfull situations, but I have to take 3 or 4 pills to reduce my anxiety. But, don't know why, I consumed 3 pills one day and it worked, but 2 weeks later, I consumed 3 pills again, and it didn't work on my anxiety. So, I don't know what to do right now. The problem is that I haven't too much time for more experiences, because on October I will start to work out of my country with people that I never met before.

    Hi, it sounds like you may have social anxiety. I'm 26 with two kids and I have the exact same problem. You should check out www.social-anxiety.org.uk and see if the symptoms fit. If they do then you should definitely see your doctor to be referred for therapy.

    i have started to suffer with acute anxiety panic attacks since having the pill injection but my doctor isnt convinced it is, can someone tell me if the injection could trigger anxiety?

    Hiya Anna, although I was on meds for the anxiety, I soon came off them wen the affects of anxiety wore off. I new from the start I didn't want to b on them but I needed a little help. As soon as I felt confident again going out doing stuff I stopped taking them. My friend had anxiety and hypnotherapy worked for her, I must say I never gave that option a go as I don't believe, but give it a go and let me know how you get on. Patience is the key my love and the understanding people around you helps. Once you realise that it's a slow process you will start to feel at ease. Getting streed and upset will only make you worse, if you go out and panic, don't worry. Turn around and go home, calm down have a brew n try again. Even if it's another day you attempt going out. Hope I have helped you because I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy x

    I had the same problem and was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I was prescribed Citalopram 40 mg. It really helps and I would recommend talking to your doctor.
