It seems like doctors “blame” strange symptoms that they can’t understand on psychological problems. (There was just a post about this). I am sure a lot of us have had that problem. My general physician for example thinks that I am depressed or anxious.
At first I just got pissed off but when I read about it it sounds like anxiety can give a lot of these problems that I (we) have. So, this whole thing with depression- anxiety-etc, is it worth looking into or is it just bullshit?
My GP is sending me to a psychiatrist. I have also decided that I will go to a private migraine clinic to see what they have to say about it.
Anyway, is anxiety a good differential diagnosis? If it truly is anxiety causing my symptoms then I should get better with some anti-anxiety meds, right?
What do you think, should I try it or should I just go to the migraine clinic instead and leave it at that?
Has anyone of you been helped by any anxiety meds?
(By the way, I am from sweden and some year ago we had a comic strip in the newspaper about a guy with an axe in his head sitting at the doctor’s office. He is sitting there with the axe sticking up from his skull and the doctor is sitting in front of his computer asking “When did your headache start?” etc. After a while the guy just stands up and screams “But for fuck sake, I have an axe in my head!!”)
Good day to all of you!
