1052894 tn?1253985045 Just because, for myself, I am undiagnosed and having similar 'you're imagining it' reaction from GP, but I am considering MS and Narcolepsy...have you had a sleep study? Good luck and hang in there. Wont hurt to see a psych as well as continuing to seek physical diagnosis...because the frustration you're experiencing and the arrogance and rudeness of bad doctors will otherwise send you nutso, right?!
Avatar m tn Morgellons disease is a growing epidemic in America and abroad. It is an unknown disease which is said to cause uncontrollable itching and symptoms of feeling like bugs are crawling all over your body. It also creates a host of painful lesions, rashes, and sores on your body which are said to never heal. Reported cases of the disease are commonly tracked to California, Texas, and Florida.
Avatar dr m tn According to Richard Florida, in his fascinating book Rise of the Creative Class, this is the reason why so many creative types congregate in metropolitan areas like New York (the city that never sleeps). He suggests that creatives work independent of traditional work conventions, and why innovations like telecommuting, mobile work stations, and global networking, have become so popular in this modern day economy.
Avatar f tn If I just can't get to sleep, I have AmbienCR that I cut in half and take one. I am planning 2 vacations this summer, one to Florida in June to visit my daughter, which won't be too busy, but one in July to Cheyenne Frontier days, which will involve a LOT of walking and events for 5 days. I'm afraid without some type of energy assistance, I won't get to enjoy this. Right now I drink at leat 2 of the carb free RockStar energy drinks, each containing 120mgs of caffien.
Avatar f tn Mayo is so far away from me and I heard the Mayo in Florida is not that good, I live in Florida. I am worried there are not many doctors familar with this. I worry about my symptoms that it is more then Just Pots, how can Pots cause so many symptoms UGH. I try to walk each day but it is difficult I want to go swimming but every time I go in the pool as soon as i get out I feel faint this is the only time I feel faint I feel as though all the blood leaves my head and goes to my feet.
432097 tn?1318552340 I don't know why in the world my doctor would send ME the results in medical terminology, I can see sending these results to my family doctor, but I can't understand any of it. Please help if you can... Sleep scoring data: Sleep latency was 5.5 minutes. The total sleep time was 286 minutes and the sleep efficiency was 72.3%. There were 40 scored awakenings after sleep onset and a total wake after sleep onset time of 104 minutes.

Avatar f tn I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal).
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar n tn Mayo has a research center in Jacksonville Florida and I beleive Vanderbilt in Tennessee also has a research clinic in regard to autonomic dysfunction. For the moment the only problem we are having now that we have found it is orthostatic hypotension. So that is what we are treating. Did you ever have a tilt table test done ? If you have not, I would suggest that you request this test. We had one done where she passed out, but they found no change in her BP or heart rate.
Avatar m tn she was better than my cats affectionate loving intelligent beautiful, the night before she was getting placed she was run over by a car two blocks from my houseI will never forget it I'm going to plant a tree or flowering bush with our photos beneath it so she could stay here at this house In our memories that she loved so much i when I move to Florida next year. what did you do about your cat? You had to put her to sleep. Do you cremate, do you bury?...
Avatar n tn The only other paper on the topic was a Black man in his late '40's brought into an Emergency Room in Florida in 1997. Come to find out, the cause is a sudden drop in blood Potassium. To further complicate things, the patients who have these, will always show normal potassium levels in our blood all during the day. The research does not say what can be done about it.
1323357 tn?1274826939 You might have reduced serotonin due to stress (even if you don't feel that stressed, modern life is pretty stressful in itself) as Tommygunz has theorized - in this case the supplements he has listed will help that re balance but you also need to train yourself out of the over thinking and ruminating habit and try to live day by day as normally and routinely as possible. For most people, the DP dissipates naturally when they are out of the traumatic situation but this is not always the case.
544292 tn?1268886268 But that's not the most alarming part of Tramadol in my case. In my case the antidepressant that they tacked on to the cocktail is the thing that causes all the rough psychological and mental symptoms. It's a Two Fer One! I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed.
Avatar n tn In closing Vicky, One day a few years ago I went with my sister in law (who was visiting from South Florida) to a BIG craft show where I live. I was talked into taking a quit "hit" from a pipe filled with POT. Now keep in mind it has been 20 years or more since I have partaken in such a thing. Well Long story Long I swore EVERYONE was looking at me. I swore that I saw all the snobs from the kids private school there.
Avatar n tn In fact my daugher went to school with his son, they lived in our neighborhood, and his niece was my daugher's drug buddy... some small world isn't it ?? I live in Florida now. Anyway, I just posted in a thread below here on opiate withdrawl and depression and he is the doctor who said "no mood enhancers for addicts" to my friend's nephew... HOWEVER...
Avatar f tn What kind of w/d symptoms are you having and do u have any family or friends ( that u trust ) that can help you with watching your babies while you w/d?? Maybe you should look at this as a blessing in gave you a slap in the face wake up call. Normal people dont steal prescriptions, we are addicts and we do whatever it takes to feed our addiction. Are you ready to quit?
Avatar n tn I'm a 31 year old male (6'1 210lbs) and in relatively decent shape. I drank alcohol somewhat heavily on the weekends in college, but have 3-6 drinks a weekend at the most now. It's gotten to the point that I'm stressing about it and searching the internet for any clues.....If you have the same symptoms and hopefully a suggestion, please let me know. Any help is appreciated. It seems that doctors have shrugged it off and I'm desperate for answers.
Avatar n tn although some say i am only looking for a good reason to move to florida. hahaha seriously though, if you do not live in a cold climate to be bothered by the metal, you may want to look into the surgery and to see if it may be an option. dr. william bingaman was my surgeon at the cleveland clinic. the clinic has a very helpful staff and i recommend the click to anyone. i hope this was helpful to anyone curious about the subject.....
Avatar n tn I am a 53 year old female, non-smoker and have no weight problems, and no known health problems. Over the past two years, I've had numerous episodes where my body takes involuntary deep breaths, one every 7-8 minutes, interspersed with my normal breathing. The intake of breath can be when inhaling or exhaling, and it when it occurs, it disrupts a normal breath. Often the involuntary breath feels "catchy" as if I'd been crying or sobbing when in fact I have not.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar f tn Oh--I think my implant was manufactured by a 3i in Florida. I do believe that the implants are FDA approved, but then so are the silcone breast implants that have caused trouble for so many women. Money can buy almost anything these days. We really need to look out for ourselves, as the pharmaceutical industry has way too much influence in how medicine is practiced these days. Hopefully I can make a steady recovery and will have good news to report to you all.
Avatar n tn I was even reffered for a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. I finally found a Institute in Florida which specializes with different disorders that cause dizziness. After 3 days of nonstop testing, the doctor told me that the tests showed "something" but did not emphasize. He diagnosed me with Verstibular Migraines and put me on Diamox. Diamox is used for Altitude Sickness and Minere's disease, not for Mirgraines.
Avatar m tn I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar n tn My sister complains about the same thing. I called my brother in Florida to tell him and he interupted me and started completing my sentences about being weak and tired. etc. So it seems all the kids got this from dear mum & dad. SHEEESH! Gee Thanks! How about giving us something we can really ... hmmmm I don't know MONEY?? Let's not even talk about when my monthly cycle comes, some days I feel like I can't get out of bed, I'm so tired!
Avatar n tn It burns when I wash my hair and I have tried all the medicated shampoos and such. It recently got much better when I was on vacation in Florida for a week, but now that I have returned to my everyday life, I pick again, so it seems stress related to me. What is sad is my 18 year old daughter who is freshman in college has started it too UGH!
