Patient's Query

Hey doctor,

I am suffering from a constant headache, irritability when someone speaks loud or in a noisy area, muscle pain near shoulders, sometimes dizziness, fatigue, tiredness, and crying spells. During my university lectures, I can sit for 10 to 15 minutes but then suddenly, I feel dizziness and something happens in my legs and I want to cry, sometimes crawling as my legs stop working. I feel I am nothing and cannot do anything in my life, frequent urination.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is all symptoms of depression. You need to take antidepressants medications for short time. You can do some other nonpharmacological way to deal with your depression. Start daily exercise for 30 to 40 minutes just go for a walk, eat healthy food, avoid junk food, take regular deep sleep, go or learn swimming if you can do, develop some good hobbies like painting, reading, writing, learn something new, spend time with family, make good friends, spend quality time with your friends, talk with new people, take cold shower, spend some time for yourself (just do what you want to do for 20 to 30 minutes a day), learn to do relaxation or meditation, and stay away from any type of substance abuse. Live your life, not just spend it. Be bold and confident, fight with your problem. You should check your thyroid hormone level, vitamin B 12 level, and fasting glucose to rule out diabetes. I suggest taking (antidepressants) tablet Escitalopram 10 mg once daily after breakfast or lunch. Do not take on empty stomach, it will cause stomach pain or gastritis. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.t

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
