I suffer problems after taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)?

Hello Doctor,

Actually my problem begins first time i took SSRI with strong activity, they started to take effect just 10 minutes after its digestive absorption! the effects are summarized as a common physical reactions of the body instructed by the brain (compulsive crying, irresistible physical motivation and strong motive energy, emotional rush, backward memory and reminiscence I don’t exaggerate if I say until 3 years old !! also divagations and temporary serotoninergic syndrome)
After one month I noticed a very low activity in my neural process and a very poor productivity regarding my mathematical and logic skills, I stopped these drugs abruptly hence the new ordeal to be welcomed to!, a new stage of new gender of disabilities and withdrawal symptoms just worse than before! I was deeply touched to the point I forgot even the way to tie my choe cord !!! It took me six other months of infernal battling (yoga and meditation and jogging) to recatch my reason, but there is still a couple of unsolicited effects, I cite :
– Short term memory, It got totally damaged, this influenced my chaining of ideas, I can’t dive into my thoughts more than few steps, also my linking between facts has received a very important impact, that far I can’t link between cloudiness and rain,too sad !
– stuttering and terminology deficiency.
– Independence of caffeine after I was taking 7 cups / 24h at average.
– Intuition and sharp thinking, also selectivity is twisted I became more chaotic about selecting my decisions.
– Readiness of learning and acquiring new concepts.
– brain zaps and inner brain electrical shocks.
– Uncontrollable and disordered muscular behavior (especially my fingers), and casually muscular itching (I suspect this to be in direct relation).
– Dysthymia, apathy and attention deficit.
– Dry and sour mouth each morning.

I talked to a doctor ,he presaged all these aftermaths to my lack of adrenaline and chemical imbalance that followed my rupture in cold turkey style, in reference to this claims it induced a disorder in dopamine transmitter activity which subsisted after the break-up event.

My question: Should I take adrenaline reuptake meds to reorder my brain ? or should I revert to these drugs again and experience the same hellish correlative reactions until I withdraw naturally ?
– Also is there some placebo that treats chemical dysfunction in the brain ? if it is not ginkgo so what would be ?

How to get rid of a bad headache and nausea?

I have had a constant headache for about 2 weeks now. This morning I stood up with a huge headache, cant even handle the pain anymore. I ate a piece of chocolate cake (Which I Love) I felt nausea since now. Yesterday my breasts were so sore I could not even wear a tight shirt. Been having tummy aches now and then, but nothing serious since now. Also I have very bad backache, but it could be a result of my chair I sit on at work, not quite sure what the reason is for it.

Can someone please advise on what I can do to get rid of this bad aches and this nausea.

Suffering from magnesium supplements overdose?

My husband has been taking magnesium supplements as a pre-workout regimen for approximately 2 months. He is 43 years old, healthily, and active. He told me yesterday, he has been taking 2000mg of magnesium daily, without realizing this is above the daily recommended value of 350mg. He began experiencing loose stool/diarrhea symptoms this weekend, not severe, but noticeable. He has not shown any other symptoms. Is this something that he should have checked or will his body naturally flush the magnesium from his system? Is there something we can do to reverse the effects of the magnesium more quickly? Thank you!

Is spider spray dangerous for my health?

So I recently moved to Texas, and as the saying goes “Everything is bigger in Texas,” including spiders. I moved into a house in Kyle in a development that is kind of in the country. I am terrified of spiders, especially the brown recluse, given all the horror stories about their bite and biting people in their sleep. Wolf spiders are a problem in this house, and yesterday, I killed the biggest spider I have ever seen in my life (not sure what it was, but it was terrifying!) in the garage. Prior to all of this, I sprayed the perimeter of the house twice with Ortho Home Defense, and my bedroom at least 5, if not 6 times. (Not all in the same day, but over the coarse of several days). While spraying the small, carpeted room, I had the door closed and no windows open because I didn’t want to let spiders in. I didn’t even give it any thought that I may be breathing it in because my anxiety completely took over. I slept in there for a week then I went on vacation for 3 weeks. When I came back, there were at least 4 or 5 dead little spiders on the carpet. I feel safe that the poison is doing it’s job at killing at least the small spiders, but now I am freaking out that I may have given myself cancer or the risk of cancer because I sprayed so much and didn’t ventilate the room properly, even though I left after spraying. I am a healthy (as far as I know), active 31 year old female. Should I be concerned or how concerned should I be? And is it still safe to sleep in the room because even though I feel a little more protected from the spiders, I’m afraid of breathing in the poison anymore. What should I do? Thank you so much for your help.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis via laparoscopy?

I was diagnosed with endometriosis via laparoscopy March 2016. Had an endometrioma on left ovary as well as “endometriosis everywhere”. Opted for Mirena IUD to control, but had it removed one year later due to side effects being greater than the pain.
My question is, at what point do I request another surgery? The pain is quickly becoming severe (wakes me up in the middle of the night, taking too much ibuprofen to control the pain….up to 4000mg a day) but after two ultrasounds, the visual evidence does not support another surgery. The pain only occurs during my cycle, but it is circling back to point that I have to schedule around it.
I have tried the pill in the past, but I do not do well on it, to say the least. And my “doctor” (NP) tells me that if I do not take hormonal assistance, there is nothing else to be done.

I want to know about HIV transmission and if a PEP would not be needed?

Hi I am a gay male and I hooked up with a guy last night which is not something I normally do as im usually very careful and talk about sexual health with partners before sex and have always used protection during anal sex. I was messing around with this guy, mainly masturbating each other and grinding on each other and a little bit of oral but then as he was rubbing himself against me it started to feel like he was trying to push himself into me and I pushed him away as he wasn’t wearing a condom and that is definitely not something I would do with someone I had just hooked up with. But the fact that he seemed willing to do that got me worried and I spoke with him today and asked him about it and he said he was just playing with the idea of it and that he wouldn’t actually have done it. Im pretty sure there was no penetration, as like I said I pushed him away, but maybe there could be a chance the very tip went a tiny bit in – im not really sure. Although I think I would have been aware, its just I start to doubt myself and there was a lot of lube on his penis from masturbating him due to the fact that he is circumcised. I asked him about his sexual health and if he gets checked regularly and uses condoms. I said that if he thinks he has put himself at risk and hasn’t been tested then I would consider taking pep although what we did was low risk so I would hope he would be honest in response to that. He said that he last got tested 6 months ago and has always used protection since then and that him and a guy were having unprotected sex but only with each other and they had both been tested and that this was around a year ago. Assuming that information is true, along with the activities we were doing and from what I know about HIV transmission I would say that the risk of transmission is very low and PEP would not be needed, but I wanted to also get the advice of a medical professional.

Girlfriend has crippling period pains that are certainly Endometriosis?

Girlfriend has crippling period pains that are certainly Endometriosis. Recent scan showed Endometrium was 16mm thick. Crippling pains and completely immobile during her period, and sometimes in between. Getting worse month by month. Painful going to the toilet when on her period. Unqualified Cambodian doctor has prescribed Clotrimazole& Tinidazole. I think a progesterone cream is the way to go forward, however it is not advisable to take progesterone and Clomitrazole together and the latter interacts with the former.

I will attach the ultrasound results.

Is it bad to always take antibiotics?

Hi Doc,
Is it bad to always take antibiotics? This year I have taken 3 courses of Augmentin. Ever since I did my radiotherapy 4 years ago on my nose, I seem to catch bacteria flu quite easily. It will start with lots and lots of greenish mucus coming out from my nostril and then I will get a very cough soon enough. It is the same every time.I always needed Augmentin to recover fully. But after 3 months or so I will get the same thing over again . . I am worried that Augmentin will not be able to work one day as the bacteria may become more resistant. I am currently down with the same thing but have not gone to see a doctor yet.. I am 100% positive that it is another bacteria attack, Should I go for another course of Augmentin? I have taken so many courses and I am getting worried. I am thinking of doing a yearly flu jab once I recover. Will the flu jab protects me from further attacks
