Avatar n tn I have a partial seizure disorder and anxiety disorder so this medication has been a life saver for me at this time in my life. A lot of weird things have gone on this past year and I really need a calmer downer!
Avatar f tn I kind of just sat in silence and absorbed all the very fast, exaggerated sounds around me (and loud, rapid thoughts in my head), until it all became too much, and I forced myself to get up and go for a walk. Just getting up to leave the house was intense - walking gently to the door seemed like I was stomping, and moving at the speed of light, but I knew I wasn't. I could hear my thoughts yelling "I'M WALKING TO THE DOOR I SHOULD GO FOR A WALK I'M TURNING THE DOOR HANDLE" etc.
Avatar n tn I also have an intolerance for caffenine and alcohol all of the sudden. 1 glass of wine feels like 2-3, and same for coffee. I hope it all stops soon.

544292 tn?1268886268 Sometimes, in war, you have to lay in your foxhole and do nothing but wait in silence. There's time for action and there's a time for inaction. To know the difference is good. It is wise. At the moment I'm beating myself up badly for not being able to move and certainly NOT being able to drive in this state! Come on now; I don't want to hurt anyone because my driving abilities are impaired. Let's act with intelligence shall we?

Avatar n tn Yes it is an anti-seizure medication but also prescribed for anxiety and panic disorders though not meant for use for more than 6 weeks. I was on it for 9 years :-( If he is taking it for epilepsy or something like that then he should not stop but if it is for anxiety/panic/sleep problems or transient pain it is far preferable to deal with the sometimes awful stmptoms of those than it is to deal with the heroin like withdrawals.
451975 tn?1372332199 ago, I started experiencing, at the age of 49, severe vertigo, visual problems, nausea and left sided weakness. I was tested for everything imaginable, no diagnosis and yet I went from being physically fit and a chef, to bedridden and sleeping 20 hours a day, because of all the gravol I had to take to get some general relief of my symptoms.
Avatar n tn He gave a drug caled Zofran used for nausea and vomiting in cancer patients. Well it worked, she was jumping up and down on her hospital bed. Weds she was fina all day back to herself, thursday morning she was fine too. I put her to bed and bam she vomits again!! fine friday morning, vomits again fri night. saturday morning shes fine, playing all day. Put her to bed Saturday nignt and she vomits again!
Avatar n tn My husband ran into the bathroom and got a hot wash cloth and placed it on my neck to try and relax the muscles, which seemed to help, but I can still feel that something is not right in there. When I couldn't get it back in, it seemed to get worse, the more I paniced, and it felt like something was tilting backwards and trying to puncture a hole into my throat. I haven't been able to get a full yawn since then, some due to it hurting, and some probably due to fear of it getting stuck again.
Avatar n tn I feel so bad for the woman whose water broke and pray for her and her baby. Did you have muscle pain and weakness? My symptoms didn't start until a couple weeks after the flu shot. Thanks for your post.
Avatar n tn Again, I’ll let you now if I test positive for any of these disorders. It was helpful for me to see that I’m not alone in this and also, that many of you were also very athletic prior to your dissection. It leads me to believe that maybe some of this is caused by over training and that if we alter our thought process, we can become stronger. I plan on going back to the gym in a week or 2 and starting out with very light weights, and like jharrah, I will monitor my blood pressure as I exercise.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any suggestions, do you have people come to help you? My sisters were coming to help for the last 6 months, but they are burned out and I don't feel any better, in fact I feel worse in some ways.. my equilibrium is bad. I also have bulging disks in my neck from the accident which started this nightmare.
Avatar m tn Okay. I definitely think the Restless Leg Syndrome is the common denominator... so what causes that? Some causes are dehydration, improper diet (not enough fruits & veggies), inactivity, & poor circulation. Maybe if the RLS goes away my boyfriend's Pointy Restless Eye Syndrome (PRES) will go away. He's had it ever since he can remember having it as a child. He believes he was not properly hydrated as a child and through adultood.
Avatar n tn Once I had it removed I did not have a period for 3 months and like you I had pinching etc...They performed a scan and no cysts found...
Avatar n tn I have had a history of passing out and having seizures but the doctors never figured out for sure what caused it and it hasn't happened for a few years. The best they came up with was blood sugar, and dehydration as a cause for those episodes, although I never had a MRI or anything of my head. I don't get pains from it, it may be a little tender if I press on the indent kind of hard. Is there any condition that would cause my skull to cave in? please help!
Avatar n tn I'm a 60 year old men, in excellent health, except for experiencing tremors during sleep that wake me up and have difficulty going back to sleep. As I start to fall sleep again, I feel these "rumbleling" (tremors) around my upper body. I immediately wake up again. These tremors last for about 10-15 seconds after I wake up. The first time I experienced this condition was exactly two years ago. It lasted for about four days and it simply went away.
162948 tn?1205256292 jan i started bleeding for one day and stoped i need help and someone help me try and figure this out i had iud for 4 years.
Avatar n tn After a normal MRI, I was sent for sleep study and Latent sleep study. I was diagnosed with Narcholepsy. The jolts in and out of sleep were due to REM episodes. I was experiencing REM right at the onset/outset of sleep. I would have freaky/frightening colorful dreams/spasms that would cause me to fight to wake up from. The paralysis is one of the symptoms.
