Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar f tn They did do a Cat scan then and more blood work and said everything came back normal. Since that awful day in June, the pressure in my head has NEVER left. It has certainly let up a lot so I no longer think I'm having a stroke but it has completely ruined my life. Since the ER visits, I've been to a neurologist, endocrinologist, my family doctor, a gastroenterologist, and an ear nose and throat doc.
Avatar f tn That went away after 2 weeks and I started exercising again 2 weeks ago - I sweated alot and lost control of my breathing in a hot yoga class (40 degrees) and had what felt like a seizure- my hand went numb and clammed up - I felt sick and dizzy and I was breathing very fast. Since then my heart has been beating irregularly (sometimes palpatating so fast that I have been unable to sleep all night), my chest feels tight and hurts sometimes, I feel exhausted, extrememely dizzy and sometimes sick.
Avatar f tn The adrenal cortex is the outer part of an important organ (the adrenal gland) that produces hormones that are essential for the body to regulate itself. Some disorders that affect the nerves in the body can cause the lymphocyte level to be too low. Examples are multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Avatar f tn Evening primrose oil may lower the seizure threshold and use is contraindicated in patients with seizure disorders, schizophrenia, or individuals receiving anti-seizure or anti-psychotic medications. Therefore, before using this herbal supplement for hair loss I would consult your doctor to see if it is appropriate or if they can recommend something else due to you taking Seroquel (which is classified as an anti-psychotic agent).
Avatar n tn It has been known for quite some time that thyroid hormone lowers the seizure threshold in humans and can cause seizures in patients with Graves’ disease (Epilepsia. 1980;21:91-96). Thyroxine therapy for hypothyroidism has also been shown to induce seizures in certain cases (Neurology. 1985;135:1792-1793). This pro-seizure effect on the brain is not well defined, other than to say that it is believed to be a direct action on cerebral cells by thyroid hormone.
Avatar n tn Experimental damage to this region in animals causes a state of coma. In humans, however, the clinical manifestation depends on the area of the RAS in the brain that is affected. With damage to some parts, you can develop transient coma and unresponsiveness and with others a prolonged state of sleep. However, the amount of brain damage needed to produce these dramatic presentations is usually quite extensive.
Avatar m tn One of the main contributors to pancreatic flair ups is dietary (dog fed a particularly high fat meal), which the digestive system is not accustomed to. Diabetes Mellitus -As with diabetes in humans, diabetes mellitus in dogs is primarily attributed to insufficient insulin production by the pancreas. Diabetes impacts the entire animal. With early diagnosis, treatment, and controlled diet the animal can live a long healthy life.
Avatar n tn My wife, 50, suffered Central Pontine Myelinolysis in August 2000. The second neurologist said the MRI indicated central & extra-pontine, with damages shown to the pons and also Basal Ganglia. She had Hyponatremia on 1/8/00 (Sodium at 100). The neurologists attributed it to a high blood pressure blood drug called Moduretic and 48 hours of vomiting.
Avatar f tn If they do diagnose seizure activity, I believe this type of seizure does respond to anti-convulsant medication. In order to help diagnosis, the vet may try a short trial of anti-convulsant meds. How is she before the fly-snapping starts? Is she lethargic beforehand, or showing any symptoms of not 'being quite herself'? Maybe not. I think that would likely mean the problem was less severe. (If it is caused by this in the first place.) But still, I would have the vet see her.
Avatar f tn When it comes to seizure disorders, there are really no reliable natural methods to control them. It's extremely difficult to determine exactly what it is that triggers the seizures and, since your dog has had several in a short period of time, the phenobarbital is really the safest route you can take. You can HELP to minize seizures by avoiding feeding him treats with dyes in them. For some reason, food dye seems to be one of the triggers of epileptic seizures.
Avatar n tn Before we left, he gave us some Nucleo CMP Forte tablets (used for treatment of peripheral nervous system disorders in humans) and said to give her 1 a day. She goes back on Wednesday for her recheck. This really is very frustrating, as I feel helpless and confused as to what is going on. I also feel guilty because she is use to sleeping with us at night but we have to shut her out because of the panting.

6814174 tn?1385052560 In children of women treated with drugs for epilepsy, reports suggesting an elevated incidence of birth defects cannot be regarded as adequate to prove a definite cause and effect relationship. There are intrinsic methodologic problems in obtaining adequate data on drug teratogenicity in humans; the possibility also exists that other factors (eg, genetic factors or the epileptic condition itself) may be more important than drug therapy in leading to birth defects.
Avatar n tn 4) re pins and needles in the foot - I would not worry too much about this - you are most likely within normal range for pins and needles 5) an EEG may be benefical in terms of the brain fog and panic snesation to investigae for seizures, although the likliehood of this is low 6) have the flashing light and visual lines evaluated by an ophthalmologist, my inital impression is that it sounds retinal rather than neurological General laboratory screeing for ie diabetes, electrolyte disorders,
1469903 tn?1286650297 • Gabapentin (Neurontin), phenytoin (Dilantin), and carbamazepine (Tegretol) are medications that are traditionally used in the treatment of seizure disorders. Amitriptyline (Elavil) and desipramine (Norpraminine) are medications that are traditionally used for depression. While many of these medications are not FDA indicated specifically for the treatment of diabetes related nerve pain, they are used by physicians commonly.

Avatar f tn I think the neurosurgeon that you see should also specialize in treating TN and disorders like it. I CANNOT imagine why a cisternogram would have been cancelled in your case. That, I believe is the imaging study of choice when CSF leak is being considered. You are going to need to be you own best advocate and demand this test. Do you have any forewarning that the drip is about to occur? If so the cisternogram should be scheduled when it has just occurred.
358304 tn?1409713092 While some seizure activity can be kind of vague, you would be likely noticing other things that would be obviously NOT anxiety. There are more mild kinds of seizure disorders that can mimic anxiety, but again, those are rare, and must look at YOUR history and what the most OBVIOUS answer here is. The great thing about seizure disorders, is they are quite easy to rule out. So, if you have a lingering doubt...again, your doc could put your mind at ease.
544292 tn?1268886268 Theres a lot of conflicting information about seizures on the list. I've never seen anYone have a seizure in tramadol WITHDRAWAL. Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc).
Avatar n tn I can speak it fluently especially when I am in a seizure mode, just going in or coming out of one. I have Temporal Lobe Tantrums that began last year since I quit drinking and I have become so annoyed at times I just answer people in the Indian language or talk to them in it if they talk to me. It's like I feel like being someone else although I prefer to stay home alone with my dogs and cats and jungle paradise I have created for myself.
388261 tn?1215403444 Detox is nothing but a blink in a humans lifetime. Like the small town you passed by but didn't see because you lit your cigarette. With that said, I wish every junkie/addict...whatever you like to call yourself... luck with detox, and luck with life. I hope every single one of you who reads this comes out on the other side shining. Remember, life is beautiful. And we only get one chance at it. Love yourself and those around you. Redemption is all about helping yourself and others.
Avatar f tn they can infect humans, mammals, and a wide range of wild animals. Not all Bartonella species cause disease in humans. Bartonella henselae causes an important emerging infection first reported in 1990 and described as a new species in 1992. **It is mainly carried by cats and causes cat-scratch disease, endocarditis, and several other serious diseases in humans.** "Bartonella bacteria are known to be carried by fleas, body lice and ticks.
Avatar n tn Lamictal has been linked with more serious effects but no well controled studies have been done in humans. Here is a bit about what can happen to fetus. Not teratogenic in animals but may cause intrauterine growth retardation, fetal or neonatal death, delayed ossification. Crosses human placenta.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar n tn Next, immersion and activity in cold water stimulate three odd nervous system responses in pretty much all humans. First, there’s a thing called a ‘cold shock response’ of the sympathetic nervous system that causes the heart to speed up initially when the body lands in cold water. Second, when your face is submerged in cold water, the 'dive reflex’ kicks in: it’s a slowing of the heartbeat.
