Avatar n tn breath holding, hyperventilation, anxiety, panic attacks, seizures, mental retardation, behavioral outbursts,schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. We have tried almost everything to try and help her with all of these problems including therapy, life modifications and medication. Do you have any suggestions as to something that may work that every Doctor we have dealt with has missed. She continues to decline and all is getting worse.
Avatar f tn Wait, so you have been diagnosed with: PTSD Anxiety Disorder, Bi Polar Schizophrenia "Stress Disorders" and Panic Disorder Have you been diagnosed with Schizo-affective disorder? Sometimes, if bipolar AND schizophrenic, the patient will be diagnosed schizo-affective disorder, because BPD is a mood disorder, while Schizophrenia is an identity disorder- and it has been noted that the two maladies have similar traits as far as dissociation, psychosis, etc.

Avatar n tn Auditory then visual hallucinations are the most common type of hallucination found in psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression with psychotic features). Olfactory, gustatory(taste) and tactile hallucinations are often more indicative of a physical conditon such as alcohol withdrawal and seizure disorders. Hypnagogic hallucination is a sensory perception in the absence of a stimuli that occurs upon awakening from sleep such as hearing a noise.

Avatar m tn Alzheimer’s disease, severe anemia, liver and kidney dysfunction causing brain fog, some mental disorders like schizophrenia could be the cause of your feeling disoriented to time. Apart from anxiety and panic disorder, increased sensitivity to sound is seen in migraine headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, TMJ disorders, Lyme’s disease, post traumatic stress disorder, and ear damage by toxins and medications.
1392168 tn?1280078008 Unfortunately, these episodes have also been seen in people with other neurological disorders, like schizophrenia or Alzheimer's disease. Both of these disorders can cause hallucinations. You also mentioned you have anxiety. These disorders are the scariest to think about along with a tumor. Although less likely, they are still a possibility. I would see a specialist. Even though these could be nothing, they could in fact be a sign of something more serious. Hope this helps!
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).
585414 tn?1288944902 I just have to build up some weight as the tardive akathesia and other variants of the motor disorders causing me to remain in motion as well as the activating effects of the medications have caused weight loss. I've moved beyond the aspect of "recovery" of mentally recovering but there is the physical recovery but right now what's more important to me is to advocate and help others so if anyone reads this and wants to more information send me a message.

Avatar n tn I can understand your concern about your friend's behavior, which may be due to the cannabis or other drugs that you state he uses, psychiatric illnesses (such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder), or medical disorders (such as closed head injury or seizure disorder resulting from the car accident). He will benefit from a thorough medical and psychiatric evaluation, to obtain a clear diagnosis.
Avatar n tn (Antianxiety) The main uses for Ativan are anxiety, irritability in psychiatric or organic disorders, preoperatively, insomnia, and as an adjunct in endoscopic procedures. It's "unlabeled" uses are antiemetic prior to chemotherapy, status epilepticus, rectal use, alcohol withdrawal and seizure prophylaxis. Nowhere in any medical reference does it state Ativan is used for the treatment of depression.
Avatar m tn I’m after some advice about potential hallucinations…I have OCD, and GAD, and im convinced I suffer from either BP or Schizophrenia, but my PDoc disagrees, especially with the Schizophrenia.
585414 tn?1288944902 A person who has epilepsy is rational but isn't during a seizure. You would think of them as rational. Well the difficult is my disability is "unknown". That can be changed. It will take a fair amount of research to determine the understanding of tardive psychosis, tardive dysphrenia and tardive dysmentia as a whole. Sure. But since they understand them in me then with proper documenation people will know what to do when spasms emerge.
Avatar n tn Recently I had a grandmal seizure and was put back on anti-seizure med. I feel great overall and was told - maybe I don't have bipolar afterall. So...did I go through all that for nothing?
Avatar f tn OK well I have ocd and I have had a fear of having schizophrenia! Ever since then I have been "hearing" things. Especially when I have that fear on my mind BUT I was in the bathroom and I thought I heard someone say "hello? Die" so I came out of the bathroom and I asked my mom what she said and she said that she was just talking to the cat... But she didn't say hello die! It sounded like someone was actually saying it ....

Avatar f tn I took her to one of the world's leading experts on childhood and adolescent schizophrenia and he agreed she is is not psychotic but simply has severe anxiety. Her psychiatrist has put her on Zoloft, which like all the all the other times she's taken SSRIs does nothing to relieve anxiety. She was also put on Zyprexa, first 2.5 mgs., then 5 mgs. It too has done nothing for anxiety; she says it helps the hallucinations, but I am not privy to much information about these.
