Customer Question
I’m having trouble staying...

I’m having trouble staying focused which leaves allot of incomplete tasks in my daily routine. Any suggestions?

Doctor's Assistant: What are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?

My mind feels like it’s racing. Constantly loosing my phone my keys. Starting tea for example and then going upstairs and start making beds until I smell tea burning. I have not taken anything for this before. Have trouble going to sleep and once I do with melatonin I wake frequently.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about burning?

About burning the tea no.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have alittle anxiety issue with mild depression I take celexa for but my doctor doesn’t pay much attention to my other symptoms

Doctor's Assistant: JustAnswer requires a modest payment. You'll see the amount on the next page. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost. And you're covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Ok so you have a suggestion

bad anxiety symptoms can cause brain fog and difficulty with concentration and memory.

you may benefit from medical marijuana which could help also decrease your anxiety symptoms and help with more clear thinking.

regular exercise can help you sleep better and think more clearly

medical marijuana can also help you sleep better as well.

I work out daily I take a CrossFit class 6 days a week.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

that is good

you should keep working out

make sure you stretch your muscles well after crossfit workouts which can build muscle but decrease flexibility

you may need additional treatments for your anxiety symptoms like hydroxyzine and a beta blocker like propranolol to help slow down your heart or another agent other than celexa

medical marijuana could still help decrease your anxiety symptoms .

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
