1285110 tn?1420150978 Over the last 6 weeks he has become tired, miserable, sad, angry, withdrawing from activities, complaining of dizzy spells and headaches.... because of his autism his pain threshold is crazy ( he had a huge hernia and felt no pain... he dislocates his knee cap by choice with no pain).... he is unable to explain how he feels or what he is experiencing so it is about guess work and piecing together evidence. When he has a dizzy spell it is always followed with a headache... and tiredness..
Avatar n tn If there are abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain, it can indicate the presence of seizure disorder, the possibility of lesion (depending on the nature of the abnormal electrical activity), etc. But in reality an EEG taps very little, relatively, of the total mass of the brain. Your description indicates that your son's condition is acquired apraxia, not developmental. It would surprise me if the EEG contributes much, if anything, to the knowledge about your son's apraxia.
Avatar f tn cid=36 There are also a number of other pages that talk about the diagnostic process that would be helpful. If you do have evidence of MS on your MRI your neuro could have enough info between the clinical observations and the MRI to move forward with treatment. Although you don't want MS, it is so important to get the answers of what is wrong and move forward with treatment. But it is equally important to not be diagnosed and begin treatment with the wrong course of drugs.
Avatar n tn The type of seizure event that you described is a well known type of seizure. The abnormality is in the cortex tissue. Two or more of these events would be classified as epilepsy. I hope this helps you. ------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm not sure, yet :-) I've seen a couple of articles relating to seizures which are induced by toxins, such as alcohol.

Avatar f tn Since reading your concerns about your daughter, what has been the outcome of her loss of words? Have you been to anyone yet? I'm curious as to what you have found out. As a SLPA student in training, I felt that Rozy321 hit some very key points as to what you could do differently. I would definitely recommend seeing a speech therapist for an evaluation just to see if there are some tips that the SLP can give you to facilitate her speech and language development. It's worth a shot!
Avatar n tn The evidence for use of statins in patients with AD is not complete. There are reports for and against using statins. The formal studies to answers these questions are being completed now (randomized double blind placebo controlled). I can not speculate as to whether these medications will ultimately be used to help AD patients. The same can be said for Ginko. Again there are studies in the literature on both sides of the debate.

Avatar n tn This 50 year old gentleman presented with history of a single episode of seizure on 29th Spet, 2007 at 9am, sudden onset unresponsiveness, clenching of teeth, blinking of eyes, tonic movements, no history of post ictal deficits, no history of headache. No history of memory dysfunctions.
Avatar f tn 's study (27) of patients with late Lyme borreliosis, serial neuropsychological testing before and after a course of intravenous antibiotics revealed marked improvement on tests of memory, attention and concentration, conceptual ability, and psychomotor and perceptual motor function. Noteworthy is that many patients with cognitive deficits did not have clinical evidence of focal CNS disease. Results of EEGs, CSF studies, and other laboratory investigations were often normal.
279234 tn?1363108849 My surgery is on the 14th of April. My husband starts back to work officially the 20th. My surgery puts me on a weight limit for 6-8 weeks and I will also have a catheter for the first week after surgery. We want to repair our bathroom this weekend (new tub and wall unit) because our tub is in really bad shape. That means we have to do it this weekend. Wish me luck. I'm tired from the holidays and the fatigue is setting in. My muscles spasms are acting up, along with other issues.
82861 tn?1333457511 We had to pull a whole lot of strings to get her admitted as nobody believed she was sick enough for admission. All hell broke loose when they got the intial blood work in. Mom's hemoglobin was a 6. Yes, a six. That's not a typo. She is bleeding out somewhere in her guts. These people were ready to give her a pill and send her home to die. Yeah, I had a few choice words for the nurse practitioner involved who was blocking the way to admission. Gotta run to the hospital now.
Avatar f tn Hi Trish, I had a look around and couldn't find any evidence in terms of research, reports etc. I had a discussion with my Prof. the other day about folic acid and b12, however it was in relation to my MCV count which is 1 unit over at 98 range being 79-97. He explained to me that MCV was the width or circumferance?? of the RBC and if the iindicator got to say 160 he would consider given folic or b12. However this is a little different to your situation but sort of related I guess.
1260255 tn?1288658164 Diffusion-weighted sequences demonstrate no evidence for restricted water diffusion. There is no parenchymal mass or evidence of hemorrhage. The ventricles are normal in size and contour. Cerebral cortical sulci are unremarkable. There is no extra-axial collection.” My next appt. with the neuro is supposed to be in February. Don't know if this will change things or not. Given that the small lesion is 10 mm, I wonder what size the tiny lesion is?
544292 tn?1268886268 LOL Welcome and I hope you will make yourself at home. Snuggle down, get comfy. There's a lot of information and experience here with getting off Tramadol. It's not impossible, lots of peeps here now living Tram Free Lives! Love & Healing!
1658667 tn?1310094982 I've had all of the symptoms that are probably on the list of possible MS symptoms--too numerous to remember all of them. Seizure fatigue!!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn I left my home with my kids 4 days ago, I just couldnt take care of him or handle the verbal abuse anymore it was killing me and my kids. I love him dearly and I want him sober. He's been in out patient rehab twice in the last 2 years and i cant count the hospital trips. Any way he goes to inpatient finally in 3 days and I already miss him. Everyone says take it one day at a time and take care of me.
Avatar m tn This drug lowers the seizure threshold when it's combined with benzos and/or alcohol. There's also some evidence of abuse reported in the literature; especially in Canada, for some reason. In addition, Tramadol contains an antidepressant as well and I couldn't tell you what happens to a brain when the two drugs are mixed...You are right to be concerned and suspicious.
Avatar n tn and 12 step programs and the nature of true sobriety is worth listening to. Of course, there is no objective evidence that more people are clean and sober in AA'NA as opposed to not being in AA/NA. 12 step programs work for many many people; many other people are successful using other approaches. But the point is not whether AA is good (it is) or even necessary (for many it is, but not for all).
Avatar n tn What about an EEG (electro-encephalogram) to rule out any kind of seizure disorder? I know these things can cause or contribute to developmental delays; they can contribute to autistic-like symptoms. The teachers at your son's school should have information on places you can go, to get more information. Similarly, your pediatrician, and hopefully your neurologist (ours was NOT much help :-O ).

Avatar f tn No one is saying all children of bipolars will have BP nor are all BP's the children of BP's - the way it is put is there is significant evidence that in a large percentage of cases there is a familial link - that does not mean that all BPs come from a family of them but more and more seem to do so.
620923 tn?1452919248 - Word recall (or lack thereof) forgetting what you are saying right as you are saying it (sort of goes with brain fog above) - Kaleidoscope vision (blobs of color swirl in front of eyes) - Seeing strobe lights - Seeing ghost images (seeing images flash into vision that you previously looked at) - Vision jumping, jerking, rocking or bulging (sometimes all at once!
Avatar n tn No difficulty reading material and writing sentences. No evidence of apraxia or finger agnosia. Good recall. No difficulty in answering questions concerning major events of the past. Difficulty in Mathematics. Performed simple arithmetic slowly with uncertainty. All of these are things I may experience daily, but not all together. Again, very generally speaking, all of these experiences are in some degree, from mild to total, of loss of comprehension of auditory, visual, or other sensations.
Avatar n tn my fiance' and i just ended our relationship in a very rough way, she has been (for lack of a better term) going crazy , horrible modd swings, depression, random outbursts and verbal bashings at me. tons of negative talk, and tons more...she had her thyroid taken out years ago and sometimes goes days without taking her meds... i know she is risking everything and now she is trying to take our son from me, i believe she is both bipolar and extremely depressed...
Avatar n tn Had to laugh at your description of the some of the behaviors presented by your son, reminded me, of one my son decided to "act out" there was a child in one of the lower grades that had seizures and my son decided he would copy that , he would fall to the floor and copy the shakeing and the whole thing, I would get called to the school to pick him up. I finally got them convinced that he was just copying the boys action.
Avatar n tn I feel like I'm at the end of my rope! Having a heart condition (open heart surgery) recently, the stress of dealing with a unhappy child on drugs and knowing what to do for them,the right way to handle the situation, and not cause them more trouble is becoming more difficult each day. Question, do I keep calm and agree with them, listen to there problems,or get angry and shout and say "you have to help yourself first"? Please give me any advice so I will do the right thing.
Avatar n tn History of my problem: For as long as I can remember, I have had a problem with my hyoid bone popping out and causing excrutiating pain. It is always the same - the right side of my neck. At about the age of 8 I talked to my pediatrician about it and he promptly told me it was not possible. That I was having anything "pop out" in my neck. He contended that there wasn't anything there that could pop out. So I just continued to push it back into place whenever it popped out.
