fainting

She doesn't remember what happens after she comes out of it, but during that time she doesn't have any type of jerky movements. Is this a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span>? What should I do for her when this happens? Is there any support groups or place where I can get more information? Thanks!
Since that diagnoses we have discovered an interesting family history. Three family members with a history of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fainting</span> droped DEAD with unexplained heart atacks. Could my husband have Cardiogenic Syncope? His halter monitor showed no abnormalities, but does that mean there aren't any?
seizures (convulsions) have occurred in some people taking tramadol. You may be more likely to have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span> while taking tramadol if you have a history of seizures or head injury, a metabolic disorder, or if you are taking certain medicines such as antidepressants, muscle relaxers, or medicine for nausea and vomiting. Take tramadol exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take it in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your doctor.
Hi Ryan, Why did you write to Ellen that Klonopin could worsen her depression? I have been on Klonopin for about a month and a half and I have noticed an increase in depression (I am NOT on any anti depressants). Overall I just roll with it and try and stay positive and I started to get acupuncture along with talk therapy. This week I will see my p-doc and I'm sure all of this will come up in my visit. Do you think Klonopin causes weight gain as well?
Overall, how are you feeling? Have you had many <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fainting</span> episodes, or other POTS symptoms? Even your anxiety could potentially be a symptom of uncontrolled POTS. Florinef is a very common treatment in POTS, and other forms of Dysautonomia. It's generally well tolerated, (although I couldn't tolerate it myself), and has had good results in stabilizing blood pressure. It seems that beta blockers are less tolerated, but they too are a common treatment in most forms of Dysautonomia.
A certain amount of people who had epilepsy in childhood may be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span> free for sometime and then have their seizures recur. However, some may be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span> free for life.
hi there, this is serious, I was told that the main signs of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. simple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fainting</span> is the jerking and incontinence. PLEASE tell a neurologist ASAP!!! I have possible seizures too but am undiagnosed right now.
I was diagnosed with a fainting disorder (now they are not sure), I have posted several times about syncope <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span>. I believe and so does one of the cardios that the zoloft caused my seizure like episode. I had the burning in my arms, too,but it was after the zoloft. It felt like I was sunburnt real bad, but if someone touched me sometimes they could feel it and sometimes not. I was put back on zoloft awhile later for a couple of days and again experienced the burning after I stopped.
August 2006:I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span>. I was unconscious for approximately 10 mins. I felt odd before I passed out but not like, I was going to pass out. I have a history of fainting. I have fainted 16 times before and this was the first time that my body went stiff and my face contorted. I had been diagnosed with vasovagal syncope. A neurologist sent me for an MRI, EEG, and an ANSAR (computerized autonomic nervous system evaluation). All came back normal except for the ANSAR.
Then the symptoms migrated all over my body and developed into these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span> like episodes which I have come to know as syncope and I now struggle with, shortness of breath. I am trying to rest in knowing God is in control but my symptoms are often frightening. Does anyone know is this something that will improve? Or is this a chronic condition I'll struggle with for the rest of my life? I am new to the forum. I'm a little scared and would appreciate any help or advice.
I do not think the epidural is in any way connected to any of the symptoms you are experiencing, nor do I think that all your different symptoms are due to one diagnosis. Sotalol is a reasonable medication for atrial fibrillation, and I would not expect it to cause anxiety as a side effect. I agree with seeing a neurologist, especially if seizures seem like a possibility.
Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
s, you name it and not one of my specialist can give me any answers. Apparently my lesions and symptoms do not fit for MS, but they don't enhance like tumors. I have terrible headaches, fatigue, some minor loss of balance, and have had a history of fainting spells with no known cause. My question is, are brain tumors hereditary? Is there some genetic test that can be done?
Especially in someone with risk factors of other mimickers such as stroke/TIA (mini stroke), or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span>. Depending on your age, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seizure</span> or ministroke can produce very similar symptoms. Headache however is uncommon in either one. In light of possible lupus or lupus diagnosis, vasculitis is a good possibility. As I mentioned earlier the gold standard for diagnosis of vasculitis if angiogram, some even had biopsy. At any rate treatment is with steroid.
It helps tackle the root prob and not just the symptoms like prescription meds. I want to know what has helped others and has anyone gotten pregnant with this condition and can your body handle a pregnancy with NCS? What did you experience? Does it make you worse? How did you handle childbirth too?
Find a doctor that will take you seriously, Your symptoms need to be evaluated by a specialist. There are several possibilites and only a doctor can say for sure. But I would not wait, a heart rate of 165 bpm needs to be looked into.
Wish there was a test that could determine the true cause of the symptoms...medication related <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span> something else. Anxiety disorders are tough. Many times I wished for an actual serious physical illness so I could just get some relief. I remember how awful that was! I'm hoping your day treatment helps...let us know! Sounds like a good program!
Hi, Caffeine Allergy Symptoms Caffeine allergy symptoms range from a minor rash to life threatening seizures. The severity of the reaction depends on what the person is actually allergic to and to what extent a person is allergic. Some of the reactions associated with caffeine allergies include difficulty breathing, shock, tongue, and facial swelling.
have you had a cardiac work up...some of those symptoms may be related to an arrythmia.........
Two weeks ago around 6pm I had an episode of multiple symptoms that precipitated very quickly, within about three minutes, without warning. These included feeling very weak, shaking all over, light headed/dizzy,numbness/tingling on fingertips and toes, slight shortness of breath and chill. I felt like passing out, flushed. I figured it was from not eating so I grabbed a burger and it seemed to alleviate the problems. Well, it happened again around the same time of day a few days later.
Thanks for starting this new group, Mrs. Aristotle!! I have been suffering with symptoms on and off for 20 yrs, but since 2006 they have been constant and worsening. I think it was around 2001 or 2002, when I knew that something was terribly wrong, due to extreme fatigue. Went to a neuro this Jan and was dismissed because I am without health ins and could not afford all the required testing.
I usually get these chills down my spine, and it often spreads to my arms, legs, and chest. It ***** so much and it often kills my day. I have a feeling the symptoms have to do with a problem with our immune systems, in which our bodies produce extra antibodies and white blood cells to act like our body needs to fight off some sickness when we really don't have have one. Has anyone tried getting a blood test while experiencing the chills?
I went to the Dr. today he said to take prenatal vitamins .<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. multi-vitamin.
Ultram should not be taken for nerves, hot flashes or depression. It is very addictive and at the dosage you are taking you can expect some withdrawal after a month or two. I would taper it off slowly and hope for the best. Ultram withdrawal can be bad and can last for quite some time.
I don't know how familiar you are with the term bioidentical hormones, but I was on them before any of my docs other patients, long before susan summers or oprah discovered them medical research had proved the differences in all the identicals <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. synthrtic subs. there is a letter writing campaign for compassionate use of teleprevir now in here, you may want to join in that.
I've had food allergies in the past but after keeping track of my diet and activities there doesn't seem to be a link. The best my allergist can come up with is to treat the symptoms as they occur. I'm seeing a naturopath for some other things and will discuss this with her at my next appointment.
All tests were normal and a diagnosis of post concussion syndrome was made. After several months of symptoms and pain I returned to work in February 2010. Several of my symptoms have improved and I have noted some new ones. I rarely have nausea and no vomiting anymore. The rest of his symptoms continue to be present at varying degrees of severity. About three weeks ago I realized I had a near complete loss of taste and smell. This occurred so gradually I didn't notice it happening.
