Hello

Posted , 3 users are following.

So this is my first post on the depression forum. I was always at the anxiety one. But lately I've been feeling not happy. Not content. Losing faith and losing interest in everything. I never knew depression could physically hurt. And because of this I always think im dying. This is no way to live. I have loss of appetite. Food makes me nervous. Makes me dizzy. I keep thinking the worst. Idk what it is. I have come to accept that I have mild depression. Can depression really cause all of these physicalls ilments? Please help.

    You should talk to a physchatrist. They will be the best to give youa diagnosis. Yes depression does physically hurt. I went through all different test trying to find a answer and a neurologist finally sent to one. All my pain went away with the meds for depression. Does the food make you dizzy or anxiety type of things? If food you need to see if it's differentfood than what you hve been eating. I hsd dizzy spells and even blacked out afew times. Sorry you feel so bad and I hope this helps.

    I have been to the Dr multiple times. They don't find me anything. I'm currently on beta blockers. A 5mg dose. It helps but I've been having really bad headaches and migraines and dizineess. I know it's all in my head but idk what to do sometimes. The mind is powrful. I was prescribed Xanax but I've heard bad things about it. Don't wanna become depending on them. I'll get past this. I'm currently seeking a therapist as well.

    Hi Swaggdalu - yes it sounds like depression, which often goes hand in hand with anxiety. And yes there can be physical manifestations of it - given that we can talk ourselves into things. Seek a therapist/psychologist who will help you dig into the underlying reasons for your condition in a safe environment. If you are not comfortable with that therapist, seek another. Don't give up. You will learn to recognise triggers for your condition and skills to cope with them. Dying is a natural progression in this life and you don't want waste time and energy worrying about that. Good luck for your future.
