Should I take medicine or not?
Ok, so I have an anxiety disorder. It's kind of bad, and I hate it because I get super nervous which causes me to just mess up! It also causes me to over think everything which I hate because I dwell on things forever and it's just ruining me! Well my mom is a nurse practitioner (meaning a theyrapyst who can subscribe medicine) and she said that theres plenty of different prescription medicine that can help me. And my brother and dad have the same thing and are on meds for it. Well she said its up to me but the medicine would help! I just don't know if I want to take it though. Because I do not want to deal with any side affects! Plus I would feel kind of bad about myself if I was on prescribtion medicine. NOT saying anything about anyone else!!!! I think if the meds help then u should definatly take them!!!! But I would just feel like there is something wrong with me... Idk... Plus idk if it would even work. So what do u think? Have any u had experiences such as this?
What kind of medicine should i take to reduce stomach cramps?
To tell you the truth, I haven't really had anything to really relieve my cramps completely. You can try midol multi symptom and what really helps me for any kind of stomach pain/cramps it getting in a hot shower/bath and just lay there and it helps me relax and stuff. Last summer I went to TN w/ my dad and brother and my aunt and cousin came over. I had never had cramps as bad as I did then, they were almost unbearable. But the next evening my cousin talked her mom into buying Smirnoff's without my dad knowing and after I drunk a few that night I was completely fine, I wasn't drunk or nothing or even tipsy, but it did help. LOL! Although im not suggesting that, especially if you are under 21, but it did help!
Are there any medications I can take to reduce sexual urges or impulses?
First, google what is normal, bc you may be fighting your hormones. I can't tell from what you wrote, whether you are trying to be like a monk, which is an entire different battle than normal people have. I would suggest that you go over to justask.com and ask a homeopath. Bc there are remedies for feeling out of control sexually etc. However, bc you have ocd you need to realize that ocd comes from general anxiety, and general anxiety is the hyperalert, fight or flight set too high and running a tape , usually of what if this or that, almost like second nature. So you can look at anxietycuresreviews.com and see the linden method- It teaches you about mechanics, and uses a distraction method to turn off the anxiety and tape going on here. I am not saying sign up, but the education on there is similar to therapy I had when I had anxiety a long time ago. It helps to know what you are dealing with. The homeopath, ( best to see one in person) might want to go for the anxiety in general, and get that to calm down, which would then have your mind back under your control again.
What to do to reduce pain ,relax and induce sleep when headache and anxiety is very severe?
What you should do in this situation (at least what works for me) Drink about 32oz of water, then work out as hard as you can, and focus completely on the headache pain, and during the workout get as angry as you can worrying about what gives you anxiety. Try to just focus all your anger into each rep, using the pain as a tool to go beyond what you could lift. Push yourself for about 45min as hard as you can, I guarantee when you are done with the workout you will feel a lot more relaxed and calm. Note: I was lifting free weights, you could also run on a treadmill, or perform most any type of exercise at an intense level to get similar results. Medication will dull your mind, and make you an invalid - sorry to be blunt The seritonin that will be released during the workout will calm you down.

No homeopathic”medicines” are gonna help.First line treatment is dietary modification along with resistance training and developing an active lifestyle.Dietary modification includes:-Increasing fiber content, means increasing vegetable content to bulk up your diet increase long term satiety.Increasing intake of slow digesting complex carb sources like oats , whole grain bread etc.Decreasing intake of artificially sweetened substances (also includes drinks food sweetened with added sugar, HFCS etc)Decreased processed food intake(biscuits bread french fries cakes anything that comes cooked from a factory), while increasing whole food intake (carrots cucumber unprocessed meat, whole fat milk, hand full of nuts daily, dishes made with whole grain flour like ones using gram flour whole wheat flour etc)For satiety you can try eating dates or using half a small teaspoon of cinnamon powder shaken with cold milk (scientifically proven to help in satiety and sugar problems).Developing an active lifestyle :-Walking 5kms or 3 miles a day at a brisk pace so you end up panting and sweating by the buckets.Picking up cycling swimming regularlyWalking or cycling to small distance instead of driving.Skipping the elevator for few floors if you are in a high rise.Weight training, pumping iron.
Can mix of Rx pain meds cause mental/ behavioral issues?
My stepfather has Rheumatoid Arthritis and back, neck, and nerve problems. He is on Pretazone, Oxycontin, Perceset (5/325), morphine (+/- 30 mg) Embrel for his RA, Celexa for his nerves, and blood pressure medicine. His behavior has progressively become more eratic in the past few months. He sleeps all day, smokes and chews tobacco to the degree of causing financial issues, eats enough for two adults, and drinks at least 3 pots of coffee. He is also an alcoholic who doesn't drink any longer. All of this goes on each day. He has family history of bipolar and OCD. His memory is failing, and he seems to maybe have a touch of dimensia, and can be mean spirited at one minute and completely nice guy the next. My question is this, can the combination of the meds he's on cause some of this eratic behavior, or could it be because of family issues where he is no longer the center of attention? We are trying to find out what can help him. Unfortunately, he is the type of person that if you don't agree with him, then you don't know what you are talking about. Please. I need some serious answers for this serious problem. My mother just had major neck surgery, and she needs some reprieve. Thank you in advance.

Sometimes they become dislodged, this is no cause for alarm. Just remove the suture from your mouth and discard it. If non-resorbable sutures were used they will be removed approximately one week after surgery. The removal of sutures requires no anesthesia or needles. It takes only a minute or so, and there is usually no discomfort associated with this procedure.There will be a cavity where the tooth was removed. The cavity will, gradually over the next month, fill in with the new tissue. In the meantime, the area should be kept clean especially after meals with salt water rinses or a toothbrush.Your case is individual, no two mouths are alike.
