I’ve had bad headaches/migraines for years. Most of the time they’re gone within a day or two but a few times it’s lasted a couple months?

I’ll start with some background.. I’ve had bad headaches/migraines for years. Most of the time they’re gone within a day or two but a few times it’s lasted a couple months. Most of the time laying down will help ease them, but occasionally even my head touching a pillow will cause the contacted area to throb intensely. I have not found anyone that has been able to explain why this is happening (the reason multiple doctors have gone with is its most likely caused from concussions when I was younger. But this is just background, honestly not looking for an answer to this but if there is one nobody has thought of that would be great.

About a year ago I was driving home from work and started feeling a sharp pain in my left arm. This spread to the left side of my torso and the left side of my face(all within a period of 30 minutes). I went to the doctor being nervous of a heart attack or stroke but was having neither. Over the course of a few weeks, this pain began spreading to different parts of my body. After a month or so of mri’s/ct scans/emg tests I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and began taking lyrica. It helped with the sharp stabbing pains but I still have constant pain all the time (I’d say 3-5 out of 10). This worked most of the time and I would take tramadol to help dull the pain when it got bad.
About a month ago I started to get a sharp pain between my shoulder blades, along with a bad migraine and pains in the back of my neck. A few rounds of Sumatriptan (for migraines) and Baclofen (muscle relaxer) helped ease the neck pain, but the pain between the shoulder blades is still there and I am getting sharp pains again in my hands/shoulders/lower back/lower legs and feet. I am getting numbness in my hands (mainly pinky/ring fingers) and in my feet. For the past week or so Ive been getting intense twitching in my hands. The neurology department at the hospital I’ve been going to wont look at anything until after 4 weeks of physical therapy.

Age:35
Male
Medications:Sumatriptan, Lyrica, Baclofen, Tramadol, Ibuprofen

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 ?

I have had a very odd migraine?

I’ve been having a very odd migraine today full of countless new symptoms.
Headache on left front side with a crazy visual aura, took zomig, hour later took ibuprofen 600, albuterol sulfate and Ritalin. Cold and hot feeling across skin, mostly on right side, nausea, joint pain, burning pain in abdomen and chest, dizzy, tired and short of breath. Migrating sharp pains across body. Ringing ears. Vision is unnaturally blurry. Chest and stomach symptoms worsen when laying down, head symptoms worsen when standing up. Symptoms quickly come and go except for vision, coldness, nausea and burning, which are constant. Zomig tasted so bad as it eventually dripped my neck that I hacked a few times and a little blood came up.

I have asthma, adhd, insomnia and depression. Two months ago I experienced an overdose on excedrin, clonidine and benadryl and recovered. At the time, I was informed of a potential heart murmur. Lymph nodes have been tender and large for years but one has become hard in the last month. I occasionally have moments where I loose a couple seconds and get startled. I get random, painless muscle spasms quite regularly. I normally have lower blood pressure floating around 120/55. I take lexapro at 10 mg, claritin 24 hour, folonase, concerta( just moved from 27 mg to 36 mg). Just added seroquel at 25 mg and ritalin in the afternoons. I was prescribed albuterol sulfate, ibuprofen 600 mg and zomig nasal as needed.
Cold spells arent new and randomly come and go, normally lasting several hours and spreading along right side from face down. Feet and hands are normally cold, sometimes blotchy purple.
Two weeks ago I had a clean MRI without contrast.
I do not drink, use drugs or smoke.
My appetite has been haywire lately and over a week I lost 16 pounds. Accidentally binging this week when the concerta wears off has gotten me half way back up to old weight.

I cannot remember old things as well as things I’ve done three days ago?

I believe I have a bad memory and I noticed that I’m very forgetful. I will list a few incidents that happened to me: I was once handed a paper in which I was asked to write all of my classmates names and I could not remember my friend’s last name eventually I had to pass that paper to someone else as I was incapable of remembering. I take a lot of time to memorize but I easily forget it all. My friend’s remember things I’ve said and done that I myself do not remember. Above all when I try to recollect my memories and try to remember them clearly i cannot it is as if a cloud was inside my brain preventing me from remembering things clearly, It feels blurry it’s a weird feeling I cannot put in words but I just cannot seem to collect my memory properly. I cannot remember old things as well as things I’ve done three days ago. It does not mean I have forgotten everything but it’s as if I forget more than anyone around me. Please help me. I am not stressed as of now And I do not have diabetes I do not suffer from any illness But I do have allergy and I have anxiety but do not suffer from it on regular basis.

I have a strange condition that makes me cramp up like a seizure?

Hello my name is (…) and I have a strange condition that makes me cramp up like I have a Seizure but its not a seizure, a stroke that isn’t a stroke and a heart attack that isn’t a heart attack. My arms and legs get numb, my leg get heavy for me and I really cant feel my left arm. Most of my body gets numb particularity my left side but now it has started reaching my right side and it hurts. I also have a sensitivity to light with my eyes and a very strange temperature awareness or lack of it many times. Its getting worse slowly and I don’t know the cause or how to stop it and there has been nothing that has been diagnosed, my question is is it one thing or different things mixed together that ended up hiding everything else causing all my tests to come back negative? I need answers in any way possible so maybe one day i can start living life again.

I have severe neurological symptoms like permanent exhaustion, worsening memory, lack of concentration, anxiety and depression?

I’m 20 and have levels of estradiol and progesterone below the level of detection while levels of FSH, prolactin, thyroid hormones and haematology are normal. I also have severe neurological symptoms like permanent exhaustion, worsening memory, lack of concentration, anxiety and depression. It also involves increased heart rate (but low blood pressure), hot and cold flashes, hair loss and lack of menstruation (for 6 months). I don’t know what to do and where to start because I haven’t received any sensible diagnosis yet and seeing a specialist requires queuing – at the moment i cannot function normally and I would be really grateful for any suggestions, even guesses.

I was diagnosed with a brain tumor as well as fluid on the brain, losing memory?

Hello, a few years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor as well as fluid on the brain. At the time I had a shunt put in to remove the fluid but from what I recall the tumor was too deep to be able to do anything with it. I am 34, a month away from 35. This was about 4 years ago. Recently I have been losing a lot of my memory, it generally happens when I wake up. It was happening a lot but normally my memory would come back within a few minutes to a few hours, but today it’s been a few hours since I woke up and I can barely remember the last week. It took me a few hours to remember who I am and where I am. From the little I do remember and what my flatmate has said, it seems to be getting worse lately and I’m not sure what to do. Any ideas?



23 year old woman suffers from numbness and pins/needles down one side of her body?

My partner is a 23 year old woman and suffers from numbness and pins/needles down one side of her body (arms and legs in particular) and has been suffering for approx 2 years. GP’s keep referring her for one test of another with no success. She is on her feet 8 hours a day with adequate rest breaks off her feet. No signs of swelling or other visible signs on her skin. Blood tests all come back with no problems. Joints don’t appear to be an issue. Originally was suggested to be Carpol Tunnel syndrome but has since been ruled out.

Could you offer any suggestions of what could be causing it?



I had a major foot surgery 6 months ago I have severe nerve pain due to complication?

Hi.

Since i had a major foot surgery 6 months ago i have severe nerve pain due to a complication.
My symptoms were:

– Tingling/Electrical Pain in my left foot, on the left side of the foot and up my heel.
– Desensitization/Numbing of said area, leading to more discomfort.
– Lump where the sural nerve is in calf.

As of 2 weeks ago my sural nerve was repaired, in which the sheathing of the nerve was repaired in surgery as that was the cause of the irritation. My surgeon has gone overseas and i cant consult him about my inquires.

Im still experiencing nerve pain, occasionally its actually worse. Could this be the nerve rewiring? I have not gotten any feeling back either, the lump is still there but i take that as general swelling from the stitches i have down my leg.

Any help would be great, thanks.
