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 also get these bad pains in my chest and sometimes in my lower throught area, it also sometimes happens when in really excited too maybe its the same with you, as i am not a doctor i cant diagnose the problem, but just thought id let you know your not the only one! :)

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.
