Avatar f tn It was discovered that I have this because I have been experiencing hand numbness for about 4 months, and it has been getting progressivly worse. At first it was just the tips of my fingers, but now it goes well past my wrists and i lose mobility of my pinkys completly when they're numb. I went in to get an MRI for it and they called back a few days later saying I have Chiari malformation of 7mm. I have an appointment with a NS in two weeks - on the 16th of October.
Avatar n tn ) I don't want to read about depressed patients, I want to read about successes and positive comments and helpful tips on coping with the adverse effects of treatment.

Avatar m tn He had two seizures, one on Sunday and one on Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. After the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly. He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects.

Avatar f tn I have four young children and I can't take the chance of something like this happening again. If anyone has any leads, tips, ideas, or anything useful I would very much appreciate it.

Sorry this is so long, but I felt the details were necessary for a full idea of what might be going on here. Thank you for taking the time to read.

Avatar f tn I've had cortisone shots, allergy medications, ointments (over the counter as well as prescription) and even a low dose anti-seizure medication (to dull the nerve endings) AND NOTHING WORKS!!!!!!

I've given myself yeast infections as well as bacteria infections from scratching to the point of breaking the skin.

Avatar f tn Tingling in the fingers or toes lessens over time; occasionally have bad days. I do tend to have numbness in the tips of my fingers most of the time. These things I've gotten use to. What I've finally discovered from reading here, is the cause of the hair loss which was extreme over the last six months. I've slowed it down to a tolerable level using a hair product called Nioxin, that you can get at a beauty supply store.
Avatar n tn they know a seizure is coming on.) This is usually a feeling of lightheadedness and a drop in blood pressure. I can usually avoid the seizure by putting my head between my legs to get more blood to my brain. I have read that others have had a diagnosis of GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) related to these events. I have been diagnosed with both in the past. I am sure that this is vasovagal fainting associated with valsalva.

Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any seizure-like activity? Not actually a grand mal but almost like your brain is having misfirings and they all the sudden catch up w/ each other.
