603015 tn?1329866573 It also lowers the seizure threshold and you could end up having a seizure. It is also extremely common so don't beat yourself up about it. Just try and figure out the issue so you don't do it again. If you have a therapist I would talk to them about it. If you don't have a therapist I would strongly suggest getting one. If money is an issue some places work on a sliding scale where you pay a lower price if you don't have the money. You'd have to ask around.
1696489 tn?1370825574 I was also having some sort of (what I was told after a CT scan) harmless pseudo-seizure activity, which scared me to tears. One day two weeks ago, I was woken up by seizure activity so severe that my body was jumping every few minutes. I treid distracting myself, eating a meal, showering, then finally I thought a nap might help. As soon as I got into bed, I just freaked. I didnt want to spend one more day in bed.
Avatar n tn I had one additional seizure a month later - I had allergic reactions to the medication and they believe the withdrawl from the medicine caused the seizure. I haven't had a seizure since then. I just stopped taking my anti-seizure medicine this past January and haven't had any problems. My dr.told me that it wasn't that I just all of a sudden got epilepsy, but that the conditions were "right" at that time. I was stressed, working long hours and even drinking occasionally.
480092 tn?1208989762 I have been on anti-seizure meds ever since and have not had a seizure for about 11 years. When you have these seizures (convulsions), do you lose control of your bladder? Have you ever gone to an emergency room for a consultation when these seizures happen? If not, you should! You need to be seen by someone far away from the doctor's you have already seen...the lack of care you have received is ridiculous!

Avatar n tn Atypical migraines can certainly present with visual auras consisting of flickering lights/stars followed by headache nausea and dizziness. If seizure is a consideration, one thing to do is an EEG with light stimulation to try and capture one of these vision spells to see if there's any epileptic activity in the part of your brain that helps with vision. A visual evoked potential may also be helpful if not already done.
Avatar f tn So, back in I think April, I reached an all-time low and decided to go to my GP. I presented her with a long list of my symptoms, and she told me they were all due to anxiety and prescribed me Xanax. I tried to explain that I was pretty dang sure that anxiety was not my only issue, but she wouldn't listen to me.

Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain. This may cause some people feel additional withdrawal symptoms or intensified psychological withdrawal symptoms when discontinuing tramadol. It is always advised to talk with your doctor before and while discontinuing this medication.
486038 tn?1300066967 They set up a appt. in 2 months, but will wait until then to offer any seizure medications, although they do believe that I am having seizures. They haven’t done anything more about the walking issue, and as it’s getting worse, I guess it’s just weighing on my mind right now, as it’s important to me to be able to walk… and just watching it leave is scary. Yes? They are just waiting….So, I e-mailed Dr. K to ask for help to handle this, and told him that this was bothering me and he said.
405614 tn?1329147714 I'm on a cancellation list for tomorrow, just in case; I can make it there in 20 minutes at the most. I'll remind her of all the times over the years that this pain has returned, with no apparent cause, and see what we come up with. I looked up TN today, and that 5th cranial nerve that causes the problems seems mighty close to that lesion I have on the pons... Does any of this make sense?
266539 tn?1281405752 You could add a Holiday Clause and specifically list which holidays they are and ask for time and a half if you work... Good luck!
Avatar f tn This has become a regular occurrence. I have a list of problems I've been diagnosed with but none of which would explain the spasms. I had a severe nervous breakdown almost 15 years ago and was put on a lot of different meds. I've had several doctors hear I had a breakdown and could tell they stopped listening after that, their diagnosis already made. This is NOT psychological. This is a physical problem. I need answers. Could this be a deficiency of some kind?
Avatar f tn -- heredity (the condition is passed down from a parent) -- exposure to toxic chemicals -- taking certain medications, such as diuretics and certain seizure medications -- drinking too much alcohol Platelets may also be destroyed by the body because of an autoimmune disease (the body’s immune system attacks the body), such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. 3 -- What are the symptoms of thrombocytopenia?
Avatar f tn There will be days where I got through not only the ENTIRE list, but also manage to pick up things that were NOT on the list whatsoever. I felt a HUGE sense of accomplishment on those days. That's another thing...and not to sound like a broken record b/c I say it a lot...but EVERY accomplishment is to be celebrated when trying to overcome agoraphobia. Instead, a lot of times...we find ourselves putting onesself "OMG, how pathetic, I didn't get past the milk on the list.
152264 tn?1280358257 Thanks for the kind response, Ada! Sorry to hear you have arthritis (and MS presumably, too?). I've been waiting to see whether this "flare-up" of the hip thing goes away, as these things often do (like the periods of stiffness and pain in my left knee). You probably know the dangers of complaining to doctors too much unless something is really keeping you from your normal daily activities. I had one pretty uncomfortable day at work, but so far it's been tolerable otherwise.
807420 tn?1238225628 anti-depressants, anti-seizure medications and beta-blockers. All of these medications seem to help with chronic headaches as well as the things that they were originally created for. You might want to talk to your doctor about trying one type of these medications if you get more than 15+ migraine days a month.
Avatar n tn Last night I dreamt I was having a seizure, and was surprised that I couldnt wake myself, when I did I was still shaking for a few seconds and couldnt think and felt like I was not in control of my body. It was so brief that I cant be sure what it was, but my whole body felt odd for minutes after. Anyways I have no idea whats going on, but I feel that from the material I have read that my ear infection could be fungal, and I have had a persistent nail infection that I took 4 months to cure.
Avatar f tn Hi Piper, did you explain to the ER that you have been taking large amounts of Tramadol for a long period of time? I would be concerned about the risk of a seizure. I'm not exactly sure what Ativan is, I assume an anti anxiety? You may want to go back to the ER and explain what is going on and how you are feeling. Don't wait around. Take care. I hope you feel better soon!
Avatar n tn When I was 17/18 years old I had drug induced lupus because of minocycline for acne from the dermatologist. Because of this I generally do not take medications unless absolutely neccessary. I am going for a CTscan on friday and more blood work tongiht. I know from the outside my eyes don't actually look cross eyed but they feel it. If I cover each eye I see fine. If I look either to the left or right without moving my head it is fine also.
665881 tn?1248930597 just normal body withdrawal similar to what happens with MANY medications (ie) Zoloft, anti-seizure meds etc. Body line, my pain doc decided to taper my Lyrica down to 50 mgs. and within 5 days my body started stinging here, there and tiny bees...It can start the corner of my eye, under my armpit, in my vagina, my thigh, inner toe etc...gets VERY intense for a day or so, weakens for another several days, almost disappears, then restarts again.
Avatar n tn It starts when you discontinue the benzo, which causes tension to build up in the shoulders, arms and causes tingling in the hands (consider these the warning signs of an impending benzo seizure) over the next few days, it culminates in a seizure, in which you instantly lose consciousness for several minutes, bite your tongue (hopefully not swallowing it at the same time). I know because I've been on Xanax for several years and am now trying to get off of it.
975514 tn?1325001538 You could be exercising five days a week, eating right and taking the right balance of vitamins and medications, but if you have a stressful job or a bad relationship at home that you are not managing, your health and your fibromyalgia can definitely flare up. It's all a matter of balancing things- making sure you are doing everything you can to stay physically and emotionally satisfied. Thanks again for joining us here. I'll be looking forward to future communications.
Avatar n tn Hi Jenny - what is Lycira? you guys have totally different drug names over there, so I often don't know what people are talking about. Yeah an Xray wouldn't show anything I'd say - you need an MRI, but they need to know where to look as well. Here you can't have an MRI until you've had an xray to see if they need to go to the expense of a scan. I think I said though, that my osteopath said that the muscular/tendon/trigger point problems that he thinks I have, would not show on an MRI anyway.
