Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms in teenagers


Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
Avatar n tn This is the first Web site I've found where there are people with the same symptoms that I have. I am a 32 year old male who lives in Seattle, WA. I have Thalassemia minor and suffer mainly from ongoing fatigue. I am ALWAYS tired, no matter how well I eat or what vitamins I take. Doctors tell me that I'm fine and "just need to avoid Iron and do some aerobic exercise." I would exercise if I had the energy to. It's comforting to see postings from people all over the world.
Avatar f tn He has always been really attractive and charming and seemed like the boy next door and all the teenagers in the neighborhood all had crushes on him. I knew nothing at the time i had sex with him what he had been up to until after. I found out he had been raped in prison, and heard he was highly addicted to drugs and shared needles, which i didn't believe until i walked in on him one day and he had one of his friends shooting him up.
Avatar n tn OMG, I'm feeling the same symptoms and I go for the Ultra sound in two weeks, I'm having all the Peg symptoms and the Peg tests came out neg, and blood and Urine are fine, but I'm having alot of spotting and a regular period
Avatar n tn Fatigue, my legs have knots, I have headaches days on end. If you touch my hair it hurts. These symptoms can not all be in my head(so to speak). I have joint and body pain all the time. I work on a computer all day 8 hrs or more, I think my headaches and fatigue may be related to my work. I take additional supplements daily and have for about 1 year. Has anyone else had the same symptoms along with the indentions and have they increased in size?
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms in my lower left leg. I Googled the problem and found your comments. I am going to the Dr. on Monday. I will post what ever I find.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you have a really big handful with three teenagers in the house. And with summer around the corner (and a heat wave already where I live), I hope you have central air conditioning that you can utilize big time? I hope when you say bloatiness, you aren't referring to sudden weight gain, because huge weight gain is what happened to me when I was on Celexa generic. Is this the first time you would be having a gastroscopy?
Avatar n tn The thinking, which sounds logical to me, is that opiates replace the brain's natural endorphins and the brain stops making them in favor of the opiates. You stop taking the opiates and there's no endorphins waiting in the wings to step in and make you feel OK. So you feel like **** instead. The Lysine is what your brain needs to make more endorphins and other neurotransmitters; the B6 is a catalyst in that process.
Avatar f tn I've got used to waiting for it to pass, but it's still an unpleasant experience, so if anyone has any useful advice on how to stop it that would be really appreciated. In my case symptoms of whatever it is are hearing sounds distorted, almost shouted by voices from inside my head, and motion and sound feeling rushed and out of proportion. Almost always when I'm lying still after waking up.
Avatar n tn It's only symptoms are usually fainting and seizure-like activity. My son has seizures when he faints, but these are like you describe in that he is very aware before and right after the seizure. You could ask your pediatrician or family doctor to refer her to an Electrophysiologist (heart rhythm specialist) and ask specifically about the QT interval on the ECG.
1684282 tn?1582660848 There is an appropriate use for each and every medication on the market, including the strongest narcotics, which I used in my daily practice for controlling acute pain in postoperative patients. Some patients in intractable, chronic or cancer pain need to be on long term opiates under close supervision of a physician. However, pharmaceutical companies have been successful in persuading the FDA in not scheduling tramadol, also known by its brand name Ultram, as a non-controlled substance.
Avatar f tn My daughter was having odd symptoms (stomach aches, terrible sinus trouble, panic like feelings & personality changes) 3 years ago Jan. that led her Dr. to do an MRI in Apr 04. They found a non-ruptured AVM. We were told her symptoms had nothing to do with the AVM. Just a miraculous fluke. They advised surgery. She had the AVM embolized first ( it took two times to do it) the following week she had her surgery. The Avm was 3cm by 4 cm. Surgery wasVery successfull. No visible problems.
1833144 tn?1319267657 I am however being tested for autoimmune diseases and mixed connective tissue diseases due to a rash I developed after the birth of my first daughter in 1999. I have had many symptoms of many different autoimmune diseases but mostly mixed connective tissue disease,lupus,& scleroderma. I was very sick with all 6 pregnancies and had contractions the whole time. I was given meds to stop contractions,betamethasone for lung maturity,and was on meds around the clock for the contractions.
Avatar f tn I think teenagers really need a Parental Guidance in every step of their way and they need help in their every endeavors. This is the time where they usually want to be with peers instead of being with their family and are most of the time, hard headed because they usually seek for independence.
Avatar m tn Maria, your symptoms sound like Multiple Schlerosis to me. It looks different in teenagers than it does in adults, and your symptoms seem pretty classic. The good news with MS is there are a LOT of new medications and new research that makes the outcome much brighter. Does this article sound like you? http://www.livestrong.
Avatar f tn He said most likely he had it since birth, and that it is rare to see symptoms start so late in life (age 67). He said that with this condition, symptoms like seizures start early. Could anyone give some insight to this, so that I can better understand it? The Dr. is very busy and can only explain it so much, when we are fit in for appts., as I know he has others waiting. My Dad is now on an anti-seizure medication that will hopefully prevent anymore seizures.
Avatar n tn When these occur in a young person, several disorders come to mind. The most common in teenagers and young adults is known as juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, an often but not always inherited seizure disorder that begins with such jerks and then progresses to cause genralized convulsions (grand mal seizures) and sometimes staring spells also. Fortunately, it is usually readily treated with a drug called valproic acid (Depakote), which controls the seizures in 85%+% of patients.
Avatar n tn childhood migraine, atypical seizure disorders, heart/brain circulation disturbances. Again not to worry you, your child is not typical of these problems. The most likely causes for children with these complaints are usually: 1. hyperacute awareness of entopic phenomena 2. vivid imagination/conscious or unconscious manipulations of the child-parent-physician relationship by physical complaints. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn I had no idea. My husband simply brought me in due to I had seizure like symptoms, severe dehydration and level 10 pain to say the least. Now, here I am still in pain. Using an audible typing system trying to function and having NO refuge. My PCP was baffled as to why a contract would have to be on file since he nor any other doctors have ever given me pain medications for my migraines. They had been managed fairly well with Bultabs, zofran and 800advil. NOW I'm at a loss.
765152 tn?1234691615 fallenrain, welcome thats a safe taper plan, sorry to hear about your husbands relaspe, both my husband and i are in recovery, i went through chemo last summer and had pain meds in the house, my hubby did not take them, so dont blame his relaspe on you in the future....... if you must take pain meds, keep them in a lock box!!!!
1571878 tn?1354953383 More importantly, I am 4 days clean of dextromethorphan aka DXM aka Robitussin aka a self-imposed prison. Like Emily has done for thousands lost in the fight against Tramadol, I would like to provide a space for those who are losing their lives to DXM. There's still time to fight, and we need to support one another. This is NOT A SPACE to debate the 'merits' of DXM use.
1290770 tn?1272079135 But I am however under a serious amount of pressure daily in my life and have been for a lot of my life. You can only handle so much before it starts exhibiting symptoms in your body. You know the commercial about the depressed wind-up lady that never wants to get out of bed, etc? That was me about 6 months ago. I have come a long way in my treatment. Now I take multiple medicines and the combo seems to help pretty good.
Avatar f tn Oh, I am in recovery and work a program with a sponsor, have a home group, go to plenty of meetings and yet I feel like a person that is a hypocrite. I was in an auto accident on December 29, 2006--it's been almost 3yrs. I suffer from pinched nerves, bulging disks and servere total back pain. I have been under a doctor's care for the past 3 years for the fibromyalgia pain and conditions and the spinal pain.
Avatar f tn No one can hear me, and I feel trapped. Oh, how much I long to run into the creek and jump off a cliff, how much I want to stab myself in the heart. People always have told me that they wanted me to be happy, but how can I be happy if people won't let me do the things I want to do? How can I be happy if I do what makes me happy... but I hurt people even more than I already have? I've been tearing myself apart, thread by thread and I can't put myself back together; no one can.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone, Welcome brave Tramadol Warriors ... Come on in and make yourself comfy ... there's room for all!
Avatar n tn hey, i am an 18 year old Ottawa,Canada native and for the past few months i have been going through a range of symptoms that i have never had before. I lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks,i was only eating 1 meal a day when I used to be able to finish a full pizza to myself. I worry all the time about life and whats ahead of me.Looking back to my childhood i can remember multiple occasions of me worrying about irrational things.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar n tn The problem was that the docs could not understand the ~30 year latency between the first concussion and my symptoms. Just this week and article came out in Time Magazine about this very subject. Multiple head trauma in youth can cause the exact symptoms that I have! They are starting to do studies. Am I sure that I have the same problem. As a physician all I can say is that it and anything else are possible.
544292 tn?1268886268 You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recover. I believe in you!
