Avatar f tn She is in Jefferson County in Golden, CO, which is very near the fires. Good point. We went and got vegetables this morning and I'm making stuffed cabbage in a few minutes. That will take me hours. I will just sit there and worry while I roll the cabbage and then eat and go to bed. I'm thinking I need to go to a doc and get an antidepressant. I was holding my own pretty well for a while but now I'm not doing so well.
Avatar n tn She verbally committed to swim at a Division I top 20 program a few weeks ago, so in addition to being concerned for her well-being, we are anxious to not interrupt her training any more than necessary. She has had about 8-10 episodes of presyncope of varying levels of severity in the past three months.
Avatar f tn Hello Dog Lovers. My Husky Hybrid is about 15 years old (rescued him around 3 years of age) and 60 lbs. 5 days ago I heard him screaming in the middle of the night. Ran outside & found he had fallen in the pool, could not get out & was near drowning. I pulled him out and he was very confused. I immediately started questioning what happened (my dog DESPISES the pool). My Husband convinced me he is old and did not see the pool and "just feel into it;" not to worry...

Avatar n tn After a series of 5 daily B12 shots, my B12 has not tested low since. I have had a single episode of near-syncope/syncope while reclined in a dental chair for a routine cleaning. With no warning, everything went black (but I was still audibly aware of everything around me) which scared me enough to get my heart really going and rallied me literally within a couple of seconds.

4810126 tn?1503946335 Since my detox I've cried twice besides this. Once, when reading a PM from an older lady in incredibly difficult circumstances who had more grit in her little finger than I've had my entire life. I felt so helpless when reading it and just wanted to be there with her. The other time was in March when I was so sleep-impaired that I was hallucinating and my SO almost burned the house down while on Benzos and Methadone.

Avatar f tn We flew through the air and dad turned the motor off, my head flung back heard and hit on the tailgate at the base of my head near my neck. I was unconcious - I was in a coma for 4 days. I had franctured eardrums, strained back, concusion, cuntusion, and a fractured skull. They told my parents that if I woke up I would be vegetable in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I woke up on the 5th day asking if there any cute boys in the hospital and could I have some pretzels.
Avatar m tn He has been in perfect health but just out of the blue had a grand mal seizure. I took him to the veterinary hospital as it was in the evening and he had two more there. Within 24 hours they got me in to see a neurologist and now he's being treated for a bad case of Valley Fever. He drinks a ton and eats more, but my biggest concern is his lethargy and lack of coordination. It takes him so much effort to get up, particularly the hind legs; it's so sad to watch.
Avatar n tn My son suffered a near drowning april 2012 He is in a coma and I dont know what to do, It's hard to see them suffer and let them go.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
544292 tn?1268886268 Day 22 Cold Turkey Tramadol ... I woke up HAPPY. I used to wake up happy all the time, before the Tramadol. Waking up happy is good. Then I tried to move. I had to use my hands and arms to get up out of bed. My body has been pushed as far as it will go. So after trying all my best tricks (aminos, coffee, food, vitamins, water) I finally stopped the struggle and called in sick for work. Tomorrow will be a busier day anyhow.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar n tn By the way, the warning signs of an impending benzo-withdrawal seizure are typically numbness in the hands and feet, aura, extreme muscle tension, extreme anxiety, tight chest, shallow breathing. But it's the numb hands that are the biggest giveaway that a seizure is imminent. If you're tapering off benzos and you experience some or all of these symptoms, get to your doctor or to an ER ASAP!! Remember, you could have a benzo-related seizure behind the wheel of a car and kill innocent people.
15607012 tn?1442453350 Instead of swallowing their pride and admitting they don't know what this is they would rather blame me. I do live in Texas near Dallas where ebola first broke out in the United States so doctors here do miss big things on an unimaginably incompetent level. For example, one week before my dad was diagnosed with cancer he was diagnosed with a pulled muscle in his neck first. So my dad's diagnosis went from "pulled muscle in neck" to "terminal cancer with not long to live.
220476 tn?1212722950 I understand very much your reluctance to tell your doctor - however, alcohol and benzos are two withdrawals that can kill, and I have actually seen a person in alcohol w/d have a seizure and nearly die. In my mind, this puts these detoxes in a special category, and if you do go CT, I would definitely do it under medical supervision. Taper suggestion (entirely a guess, I have no medical background at all, so this is just how I would do it.
Avatar n tn When I had dental trouble early this year, I had access to about 200 Lorcet and Vicodin in one month. Legitimately. Otherwise I can purchase anything on the black market very easily. The problem is that my dependency builds and I become very difficult and horrible to be around when I try to space the doses. When I take the drug at first I function fine and am able to I usually build up to about 7 vicodin es a day and then have to stop cold turkey (2 in the daytime, about 4-5 at night).
Avatar n tn "Klonopin is the agent of choice when cardiac manifestations of anxiety are present. Xanax is not approved for the long term management of anxiety disorders, and will lead to rapid tolerance and loss of efficacy due to its short half-life. This will cause severe problems in the near future." I was told by the last doctor I saw that valium and xanax were the strongest of the benzos.

Avatar n tn and I was analyzing my nightmare in my mind, when suddenly I felt someone getting in to my bed near me. It was as if it was real. I could hear the noise, feel the pressure...everything. I didn't turn my face to see what's going on ( during I was dreaming this, my face was turned to my left side). Actually... I had my body paralysed aga in . I couln't move or speak. I prayed again, and the I could move and woke up.
