1348686 tn?1310654243 Endoscopies are very safe procedures. You will usually be given sedation (not general anesthesia) and most people don't remember any of the procedure at all. I've had many endoscopies and I have no memory from most of them. Some people have some mild reactions to the sedation such as dizzyness, hallucinations, fatigue, or just "feeling strange". These might last for the rest of the day but they are almost always mild and are gone by the next day.
Avatar f tn Although I was quite comfortable, the Fentanyl really made me hallucinate. The hallucinations were like a waking day dream that felt comoletely real rather than anything psychedelic. These could be quite insidious and I would have to do careful questioning to find out if the events really happened or not. I also had overwhelmingly vivid dreams that were a lot more entertaining than the tv programming. Although it was quite comfortable it was kind of creepy.
Avatar f tn still unable to get medical insurance. my daughter is experiencing hallucinations. is this symptom a norm with chiari? I never know when to get emergency help. thank you for your help. my best wishes for all of you.
Avatar f tn health anxiety but stress and my nana just passed away on Friday from liver cancer but before she did she kept seeing things little bugs crawling on her and the doctors said it was hallucinations because she was dying.
Avatar f tn I am learning so much about bipolar and I have found that I have, in fact, been having mild hallucinations my whole life. I have not talked a lot to anyone about it in my family or any of my friends. I'm afraid they will think I'm super crazy and reject me or not let me around their kids because they think I'm dangerous. I just want some insight about how to approach the subject. I really want my loved ones to understand what I'm going through.
403156 tn?1290150018 Has anyone experienced hallucinations while not being entirely depressed or manic? I have been diagnosed as BP II for almost 3 years and have never experienced hallucinations until now. I feel like I see things in my peripheral vision that are really not there. I have also occasionally heard things as well. Mood wise, I feel very stable. So this is completely alarming.
314128 tn?1226857620 I feel ridiculous asking this question - but had a scarey night. This is probably my 4th attempt at abstinence from vics. Been doing 12-15 5/500 a day for several years. This is day 4 and feeling good except for not being able to sleep to save my soul. Last night I could have sworn the clothes in the laudry basket were moving. (Socks crawling over the edge, bathrobe holding up its sleeves to dance -honest to goodness magic mushroom like hallucinations.
Avatar n tn I thought I answered this post already?? I am BP I, rapid cyling, mixed state. I only have hallucinations when I am manic, as most bp's do. I have speakers appear on the wall and play rock and roll music, kind of cool. Other than that, I see little stuff whizz by in my prefreal vision. I did overdo it playing too much World of Warcraft last year and thought I was living in the game for awhile.

657036 tn?1229923556 i've just recently (within the past month) begun having visual and auditory hallucinations and at first i tried to convince myself they weren't happening. now i'm just desperate for them to go away. i'm sure there could be countless other explanations for hallucinating but when i was about 13 i was diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder which led to a major depressive episode, and later began to use drugs as a means of escape.
Avatar f tn I experienced this (hallucinations of various kinds) before I started treatment for schizoaffective disorder (schizophrenia with a mood disorder) and this can happen in schizophrenia and other psychiatric disabilities but there are many potential causes of psychosis and only a psychiatrist could provide a specific diagnosis but it would be worth seeing one.
Avatar n tn Antipsychotics are used to treat more than just schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. They are FDA approved as mood stabilizers and used for other purposes as well. Antipsychotics vary as to beneficial effects and side effects. If you were prescribed an antipsychotic and have started to experience hallucinations then you should inform your doctor and they decide what to do within their discretion.
Avatar f tn I used to have audio hallucinations a long time ago before I was stabilized but all of a sudden I am starting to hear voices. I am not schizophrenic or psychotic (yet). I have Bipolar Disorder and have been going thru a lot of stress lately. My theraist siad it was just a symptom at this point and it is probably caused by stress. She told me to keep an eye on it and if it gets worse to tell my mental health care provider... I have an appointment with her on Sept 7th.
Avatar n tn He has slight swelling on the brain and was given oxygen at the hospital for several days.......are these hallucinations normal in his case?
Avatar m tn I wake up sometimes with a headache and suffer hallucinations for a few hours after, I have trouble remembering what I was hallucinating about , this doesn't happen very often but is very disturbing. Can you help please.
1128145 tn?1260343690 A matrix fentanyl patch places the fentanyl in adhesive. There is therefore no gel to leak The matrix design is considered safer because it cannot leak gel. Again a good subject for your pharmacist. he/she can tell you which type you have. You should be able to view the difference and there is a lot of good information on the www. I hope this has cleared up some questions for you. Your pharmacist is a great resource.
Avatar f tn For me Fentanyl patches 50mcg have saved my sanity. They lessen the pain but don't take it away but make life a little bit easier. I also take Tizanadine and oxycodone for flare ups. In the morning I start taking Savella the new Fibromyalgia medication. My Rheumatologist gave me a four week starter pack of Savella today. I'm really nervous to take this medication because both Cymbalta and Lyrica were horrible medications for me. The side effects scare me.
Avatar n tn I have taken up to 120mg of Cymbalta and never had hallucinations and I have never heard of anyone having hallucinations caused by Cymbalta. I looked it up in a PDR and hallucinations are not mentioned, not even one case. You will probably need an antipsychotic for the hallucinations if you continue to have them even when off Cymbalta.
Avatar m tn People with anxiety do not see hallucinations... if they do it's probably b/c they are on something called ACID or LSD. lol. People who do hallucinate, usually are schizophrenic. BUT! Don't let your anxiety start taking over right now and start making your self think you are schizophrenic. lol. I've done that before. I agree with greenlydia and nursefirl6572 on this one.
Avatar f tn The doctors could not get me stabalized for days and ended up putting me on 200 mcg/h Fentanyl patches every 72 hours. Due to post op complications (pneumonia, blood transfusions) I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. When I was released and saw my doctors for the first time to get the staples removed from surgery, they tried to take me off the patch cold turkey. I had a grand mal seizure and they put me back on it.
Avatar m tn Recently she has been experiencing panic-type attacks and possible hallucinations. The doc says her Synthroid levels are not too high--that was her first thought--but I wonder. Has anyone else experienced hallucinations due to hormone imbalance?
1469703 tn?1372041476 I'm wondering if anyone else here has had any issues with Copaxone concerning side effects other then the injection site reactions? I've been on Copaxone for 3 months now, I am agitated, frustrated, quick to anger. I've also been experiencing paranoia and mild visual hallucinations. I'm getting sick at least every 2 weeks, and have a general feeling of "un-well" or "ill".
