Common Questions and Answers about Stress trauma and the brain video


4415577 tn?1354233736 I figured it's my brain returning to its normal status and recovering the med trauma may be, but it's been a while now, pushing 4 months since then! Now I just dunno.. what is that?? is this the meds have caused me a brain damage or is this the BP itself?? Can anyone relate? I found out some people had the same effect when their meds was reduced, could that be it? shouldn't it have all balanced itself out by now?
Avatar n tn This is the second time that I've had this brain shaking and my conclusion (and I hope I'm not just being innocent) is that they're caused by too much stress and caffeine. The first time I had these series of shaking was four years ago: I was pregnant, we were not doing good financially, and our family company had to close bringing us LOTS of family problems. Now I'm having them again and, whether it's a coincidence or not, I believe it's pure stress.
Avatar m tn I have never had treatment and have had this for well over ten years, so it's a part of my everyday life and I am disabled now. The pain is bad at times, but the dang fog in my brain is what really makes this disease a pain in the neck. I space off constantly!!!
Avatar f tn I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal). I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....

Avatar n tn I'm currently a student ready to graduate college. I've worked full time the whole 6 years while going to school full time. This may be relevant. Over the past 2-3 years I've noticed that I have a really hard time staying focused. It's almost like I am in a dream world 24-7. I took effexor and wellbution about 4 years ago for a period of one year for depression, which was mostly home sickness. No other medications but birth control for 8 years (which I currently take).
Avatar f tn He was then diagnosed with Arnold-Chiari Malformation where one of the symptoms could be sleeplessness, and this diagnosis was made possible via MRI of the brain stem (I was wondering though how I could send it out, as the MRI of my brain stem would be shown in the 3rd slide of the paper-backed file, because only then could it show if I also suffer from this). Although in the boy's case, it's genetic, I've however read this could be triggered by external factors, in my case the accident.
Avatar n tn I have seen the ENT specialist twice and been giving the all clear both times and told its my anxiety and stress which is making the problem worse. The problem is when you are constantly experiencing this lightheadedness you cant control the anxiety. Also i get a funny sort of pressure in the head, especially on the top and problem is compounded when im out in busy places, i feel uneasy on my feet and that i need to sit down.
1462810 tn?1327364049 I ate some sprayed peaches that made me sick in Phoenix. At the same time, I started smelling cigarette smoke when there definitely was none... so badly that it became very distressing and actually had me holding my breath automatically! Not good. I posted to a good online Q&A site and, while everyone agreed that it was neurological, the only answer that resonated with me was from a woman whose husband had the problem during a time of great stress...
Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
211940 tn?1267884866 The acromion is the large bursa in the shoulder that protects and cushions the tendons as they glide beneath the shoulder blade. With repetitive activities above shoulder level, overuse, aging or falls, this bursa may become inflamed, producing noises when the shoulder is moved. Pain coming from shoulder bursitis is frequently felt halfway down the upper arm toward the elbow.
Avatar n tn i find taking lsd, psilocybin, and the occasional roll really helped me appreciate my brain, and the use of language. You just have to really think about whats going on and around you, like what you life consists of, the friends you have, your family, anything, and really appreciate them , because life is really unexpected. As for drugs they are very unexpected because they can effect people very differently.
1852058 tn?1320162300 Once these invasive organisms exploit any potential weakness in the BBB, they gradually infiltrate the brain, cause Lethargy, Brain Fog, Confusion and other Cognitive impairments. The Brain's and BBB's defense is often a Lock-down. That means that any attempted treatment may not prove successful because of this. I purposely expanded on this, to illustrate the fact that the challenge that you are facing is multi-faceted. 1. Multi-symptomatic. 2.Disabling 3.
480448 tn?1426952138 For a person who is experiencing this for the first can be VERY upsetting and disturbing. I was there before as well...the first time I went through this, I was convinced there was something wrong with my eyes. Everything just "looked" so weird, so odd. I almost felt like I was having out of body experiences...or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind.
1323357 tn?1274826939 you have no control over this the more you try , the more tired your brain gets and it can't feel the safe feeling it needs. By worrying/stressing you are sending signals to the brain that something is wrong - hence it will protect itself even more and so the cycle continues. If you let it get the rest it needs and just carry on your every day life as best you can, then eventually the safe feeling will return and you will recover.
Avatar m tn 1 video changed it all for me on youtube. Type stretching to relieve sciatica on youtube and click the first video. Do the stretch the gentleman says, and you will be find in a week or two. Hard to believe a simple stretch cured 2 years worth of pain. Cheers, and good luck.
Avatar n tn This is so funny and strange that we all are experiencing the same things. This has truly interrupted my life, but I have hope! I actually am self employed but havent truly worked in a few weeks thank God for my husband. I am a 27 year old female and had anxiety problems years ago but went away with prayer, and taking control and refocusing my thoughts...
Avatar n tn It seems to me not many people on here understand what you are experiencing but I do its not constructive or creative in a positive way it doesn't give you hope to accomplish you dreams its dark and disturbing fears manifesting their own reality in your head and although you can tell the difference between daydream and reality the daydream can become so elaborate that it effects you reality. This causes a lot of problems in life especially in the areas of work and relationships.
Avatar f tn I have been off meds for a long while and notice that when under stress my throat is tight, my neck and back are tight, and within a day or so the weird feelings come back. After a day or so of the weird feelings the anxiety state rises and it seems to become a feedback cycle feeding on itself to continue it. I wonder if anyone else has been able to notice this.
Avatar n tn I would take an appointment soon, rather than wait for August. The biggest concern with repeated head trauma is of course a bleed in the brain though this is very unlikely given that he sounds otherwise fine and this sounds like it has been going on for a while. With the face pulling, one thing that would need to be ruled out is a seizure or other abnormalities of muscle, such as dystonia.
Avatar m tn this means that you rarely switch off (anyone toss and turn more after drinking?) and this means that the next morning your body and brain are tired. your kidneys have to work harder, your brain doesn't work on full power and your heart rate increases because alcohol is a stimulant When you are tired, as most of us permanetly are, the anxiety tends to increase. Having said that I think a nice hot whiskey with cloves, lemon and sugar relaxes me (i'm irish!).

Avatar n tn I have heard the sensation described as brain shivers and they were hideous! The weight gain, however, is more than I can bear! I have gained 70 pounds since being on the Effexor, and have a host of debilitating physical ailments now as a result of the weight gain! Has anyone been truly successful in achieving metabolism normalcy and weight loss, after stopping this medication? I am desperate for a light at the other end of the tunnel.
Avatar f tn The worst thing of all is that my husband and I are trying to get pregnat and I hate been intimate because of it. I feel so embarrest of been closed to people and talking to them and the covering of their nose and the discost look in their faces. I dont blame them but it still hurts and I use to be so socialble :-(. Any advices will be really appreciated. Oh and I am spanish and I eat spanish food all the time, not spicy hot. {Cuban}We are not into spicy food.
Avatar n tn I had IVF so I KNEW when there were embryos inside me and when they should be implanting, and I still couldn't tell during the 2ww either that I was pregnant or that I was not. Lower body cramps, etc. were all the same. I remember being really surprised to get an HPT that was positive, and wouldn't have been so surprised if I had known through my female intuition that the IVF had worked. That said, some ladies do say they just knew.
544292 tn?1268886268 Clue number two was when someone stole the remaining one and a half cases of ultram samples out of the MD's office on the unit. Presumeably it was a staff member. Old timers just shook their heads and said "yep, same thing when valium came out... and it won't be the last time, either." Then, a year or two later, got our first patient needing detox from tramadol. I have watched and assisted aprox 25 people go through tramadol withdrawal.
Avatar n tn To say that it's unpleasant doesn't quite capture the torture that it causes but anyway I notice now that the weather is warmer where I live and although I lost my job which was a big source of stress I no longer feel the ear and jaw pain for over a week now which for me is better than winning the lotto. I do feel you should try the acupuncture they will get to the root of the problem also if your already seeing a chiropractor adjusting your neck will also help.
748543 tn?1463449675 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
