What besides brain tumors cause psychomotor asthenia?

I'm interested in knowing which of these three cause that particular symptom: 1) SLE, 2) MS, and 3) Hypothyroidism

Tell me any others that come to mind too.

All of the above.
There are mental illnesses which cause psychomotor anasthenia (also known as psychomotor retardation), like severe depression, catatonia, and conversion reaction.
Additionally, any damage to the frontal and/or prefrontal cortices will cause it, like stroke, anoxia, encephalitis and traumatic brain injury. Parkinson's disease, cistercircosis, tertiary sypillis, Pick's disease, and Cruetzfeld-Jakov disease often show psychomotor anasthenia as a symptom, too. There are others, but they don't immediately come to mind.  (+ info)

Do you suffer from spring asthenia? How do you deal with it?

Winter food is generally less rich in vitamins, calcium and the magnesium in vegetables. The lack of magnesium and calcium can lead to that feeling of weakness. The lack of calcium, experts explained, also comes from the body’s failure to synthesize vitamin D, a result of months with little sunlight. And the lack of sunlight over long periods can in itself lead to depression.

Best way to deal with it is healthy diet and lifestyle. Get outdoors frequently - dont just stay in as its cold!  (+ info)

Is it normal to prescribe a high dose of fluoxetine for more than 9 years?

that`s what my psichiatrist prescribed for dysthimia, but for months now I`ve been suffering many symptons (weakness, asthenia, etc) for which the doctors don`t find a cause yet. Could all be because of the 60 mg of fluoxetine per day taken for over ten years?I`, n in danger of intoxication?

You could probably get the best answer to your question from your pharmacist who prescribes your medication. He is the expert and actually knows more about medications than your psychiatrist or doctor<  (+ info)

The question is about the medication called Paxil?

If this drug has so many side effect like Asthenia,sweating,nausea,decreased appetite,somnolence,dizziness,insomina,tremor,nervousness,ejaculatory disturbance,and other genital disorders why keep prescribing this medication to people if it is going to make you worse..
Question #1: has anyone been prescribe this medication in the past ?
Question #2: has anyone been feeling these side effects like I have ?
i think this medication should be taking off the market because since taking it i feel worse than before

Welcome to the club. I've used Celexa, Lexapro, Paxil, Wellbutrin, Zyprexa, Zoloft, and Remeron. Finally, after all of those and a couple of suicide attempts, I found my way out in a book called, "The Feeling Good Handbook" by David Burns, MD.

Here's what I'm left with after all that.... Antidepressants don't cure anything. All they do is suppress your feelings a little. Doctors prescribe them because they don't know what else to do and they've been brainwashed by the big pharmaceuticals. I think advertising drugs should be prohibited, and doctors should be made to take the crap themselves before prescribing it. But, that's just my opinion.  (+ info)

why these people are not that afraid or anxious?

there are people especially in their old age, have lots of health problems, some are incurable, some are life threatening and yet these people who have their diseases are not that in despair or they don't think that much of their situation.they are in a calm state..why am i so much worried about lots of things especially my health..i am afraid that i might die soon..this and that.but there are still no diagnosis about my condition.my doctor says its mental asthenia..why i worry a lot and afraid much..

Dear heart what can I do to help you? Nothing but send you love and care from me and mine. Yes I am elderly and ill and disabled but it is not going to beat me - I could die tomorrow or next day this year or next or not for 5 10 or even 20years. Yes I have pain. So why do I give in only rarely? Because I have a lovely family and they support me and emotionally I support them from my smallest grandchild to my eldest daughter. We have had our bad times (so very bad at times) but through it all we had the one thing that kept us together and keeps me going now and that thing is love. Look out of your shell and at the wonderful world around us, look into your own self and love the nice things you will find. Dwell on the good you have done and that you may do tomorrow and know that in your pain and fear our love is shared with you. Be brave my lad believe in yourself and all will be well for you.
