Avatar dr m tn With advances in technology and increased awareness by the lay public, government officials and medical professionals about the importance of using CPAP for obstructive sleep apnea, traveling with CPAP, although initially a challenge, can be done with relative ease.

Avatar n tn More severe cases of myoclonus can distort movement and severely limit a person's ability to eat, talk, or walk. These types of myoclonus may indicate an underlying disorder in the brain or nerves. Myoclonus may develop in response to infection, head or spinal cord injury, stroke, brain tumors, kidney or liver failure, lipid storage disease, chemical or drug poisoning, or other disorders. Prolonged oxygen deprivation to the brain, called hypoxia, may result in posthypoxic myoclonus.

Usually, an EF below 29% (fraction of blood pumped with each stroke) is not enough cardiac output to meet the oxygen/blood demand. My EF was below 29% and the underlying problem was some impairment to the heart muscle compromising contractility. I did not have an arrhythmia issue although my enlarged heart could have made me vulnerable.

Stability Carbamazepine tablets, extended-release tablets, and chewable tablets should be stored in tight, light-resistant containers at temperatures not exceeding 30DGC.

Avatar n tn Your doctor might not be prescribing you benzos for exactly the reason he gave--that with a histoy of substance dependence, he doesn't think that an addictive drug would be a good idea, so he is trying to accomplish the same result using different types of medications. I am, however, at a loss as to why he didn't have you keep taking the paxil (WITHOUT THE TYLENOL PM!!!), or try another SSRI, such as the zoloft you mentioned.
1303966 tn?1296743610 He does not believe I'm having TIA's, but most deffinately hemiplegic or basilar migraine. He stressed the importance of these being controlled and was visible upset that I'm my local neuro does not have me on meds for these conditions. Before surgery, he wants to see how meds control these conditions. I looked up these types of migraines, and it's highly possible with my symptoms and ER visits that this is what I'm dealing with.
209591 tn?1267418314 The following are some conditions that are associated with a positive Babinski's Sign.
1557928 tn?1304814263 This is of great importance because with every seizure, you run risk of stroke and death, even if the drugs were not a factor. Also, benzo's are different than opiates which gives you not only a higher tolerance that to get high, but your body adapts and tolerates as the use increases. With benzo's your mind may get a tolerance but the body never does. And some day you will find that you are not superman, you do have a ceiling, and once you pass it you will die.
Avatar n tn There is plenty of data on healthy lifestyle and the importance to heart health, depression and the like. A person considering treatment would be very well advised to make sure all things are in order and that they are in the best physical shape before, during and after treatment thzat they can reasonably achieve. Studies have shown that side effects are less intense in those in good condition and that those who are of average weight respond in greater numbers than those who are not.
Avatar f tn I can't believe these people are risking you having a seizure or going through a painful withdrawal because you have no money or insurance!
Avatar m tn There's little doubt that this wholly inappropriate fat phobia has had a lot to do with our burgeoning Alzheimer's epidemic. Fortunately, the importance of these healthy fats is starting to become more widely recognized. One of the largest meta-analyses to date, included data from more than 600,000 people from 18 countries. The study concluded that current evidence does NOT support guidelines that encourage low consumption of saturated fat for heart health.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
1068422 tn?1293687853 Hi, I am a 47 year old woman who has Type 1 diabetes, Crohns Disease and a newly diagnosed seizure disorder due to a car wreck when I was 15. I have had the seizures since I was 15 but I was not medicated. I thought "everyone" had the jerks and stuff. Diabetes is doing great! I am on an Insulin Pump and have fantastic control and A1C levels. In 2000 I started having problems with pain in my sternum. It feels like a wash rag would feel when it was ringed out.
Avatar f tn However, after 2 years of orals, 10 months of rocephin, and continued orals after that, XXXX is off her heart meds, hasnt had a stroke or seizure, and is remembering, driving, ice skating, skiing and riding her horse on nearly a daily basis. We have mostly good days lately, which is really nice." 5. "A year ago, I could not move my left arm due to synovitis and multiple joint pain that kept me awake at night. I often had to retreat to bed from fatigue.
Avatar n tn My doc (GI) put me on Pegasys as he felt the sides were less. He stated that both types seemed to be equally efective but initial experience with patients seemed to favor Pegasys for minimal sx. I also got almost the exact advice on use of tylenol PM and benadryl from my doc. I haven't really used the tylenol too much as I'm nervous about it's effect on the liver but the benadryl seems to help.
Avatar n tn I woke up in the back of an ambulance going to the hospital, because I had, had a seizure. I didn't remember anything. This is what made me change. I decided that I needed to change for the better. I also went to the doctor and he started me on an anti-depressant. The anti-depressant has helped prevent any relapses (I used to go through phases of 1 week of great control, then months of horrible control), and I have gone 6 months with great control now.

Avatar m tn I DO understand that, but you've got to start trying some approaches here to see if there's something that will help even improve your symptoms. There's all kinds of options I would imagine would be feasible options, from some anti-seizure meds, the Klonopin I mentioned, just to name a few. Again, finding the right doc is the key IMO. Good luck...please let us know how you're doing.
Avatar f tn When I found out VX didn't allow them (which was here on this board and long after I had been told I had not been chosen, I was shocked to learn that trials normally didn't allow rescue drugs, and I was actually relieved I had not been accepted for that trial. I learned a lot here about rescue drugs and their importance, and for me - I am convinced it would be insanity to attempt treatment without them. My second hep doc thinks the same.

Avatar m tn Always worrying bout passing out, having a seizure, dying, and tons of other things. And I don't know why! It's so hard to go out and do things. Even to leave the house. I do leave the house for work but other then that, I don't rlly hang out with friends and do things. It's like when I start feeling really bad, I get in a blah mood where I feel like I have no emotions and no energy to do anything. When talking gets hard. It's like I'm wasting my life being like this.

Avatar m tn Surgery may be the only option for certain types of tumors and if the tumor does not respond to medications (if that is an option). They should go through the nose and you should find a surgeon who is very very very very very skilled - as in has done more than 500 surgeries lifetime and more than 50 this year and has done quite a few of the macro tumors as they are more difficult and can have more potential for complications.
Avatar n tn That residual of burning pain is the slower non-myelinated nerve fibers conducting the pain that was so rapidly transmitted by the myelinated fibers. So, that contrasts the two types of nerve fibers. Now what about how the B-12? A deficiency can lead to demylination of longer nerves, and slow impulses. Either weakness and decreased muscle tone results...or painful stimuli even 'lingers' a little longer before completing transmission.
Avatar m tn Thanks so much for all of your replies, I have my 1st Psychiatrist Appt. Tomorrow, with a specialist that deals with chronic illness and depression... Again, although I am "Totally exploding" in here, I am completely with you 100% on the importance of this, and had already booked therapy before I came on here, it took a very long time to get the appointment. Nevertheless, I'm completely of the mindset that I make my life, what ever experience I choose, by how I react to it.
