I experience severe headaches and vomiting and I get deja vu, is it Aura or Epilepsy?

Hi I just need an opinion, the neurologist suggested amitriptyline or Sodium Valproate. She said either option would be fine. I’m on 150 mg zoloft so would need to be on a very low dose of either. The migraines are most likely related to my period so I’m also on the mini pill (cerazette), I experience severe headaches and vomiting and I get deja vu but they ruled out epilepsy and just said it’s aura.I’m nervous about trying meds. I tried propranolol but it made me depressed and didn’t work.

I have lost most of my hearing in my left ear and vision in left eye, is it a brain tumor?

I believe I have a possible head tumor. About a year ago I was experiencing buzzing in both of my ears that would only last a seconds. It would happen just a couple times a month. Then the buzzing became longer periods & was happening more often. Then it eventually became a constant buzzing in only my left ear. I have lost most of my hearing in my left ear. This hearing loss has happened within the last 4 months. I also have had my vision in my left eye intercepted by by whatever is causing the buzzing in my left ear. With thin the same 4 months, I can not see very well in the Left eye. It’s very blurry. Even if I put something close to my face, I still can not see things clearly. The buzzing is constantly going on from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed.

I feel stunned and mentally drained, should I get an MRI?

I’m having this symptom everytime i’m talking for a time with friends or anyone. I feel stunned and mentally drained, it’s really bad. It’s not the tipical “feeling tired after hanging out” it’s something worse. I noticed that if i take a asprin before hanging out, it doesn’t happen at all or just slightly. So yeah, everytime i have to hang out with friends, i must take an aspirin to prevent this to happen. I also got this symptom trying to sing a song in my car and after taking several breaths. Yeah, after singing for a minute and taking breaths, boom i get this symptom (brain stunned and drained/tired) I really don’t know what’s going on, never had something like this before. I also noticed that if i drink something with sugar/caffein i feel slighty better. Has it something to do with brain oxygenation? I readt something about it and the symptoms are similiar. I suffered from long stress. Is it causing this? Someone suggested me to do a magnetic resonance. I really need to know what’s going on, i don’t think it’s right to take an aspirin everytime i have to hang out. Looks like “talking” causes it.

Severe headache starting at top of neck going up back of head?

History….fibromyalgia, arachnoid cyst base of brain, bicuspid aortic valve replacement with ascending aortic root replacement, history of tia, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Issue…severe headache starting at top of neck going up back of head then spreading out over whole head at top of head, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, little confusion, weakness and now an electrical probe feeling on head, severe pain in arm that comes and goes.



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.

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.
