    lightning bolt spasms back of the head , followed by tremor, brain fog ect...

    First of all let me say first and foremost. What I and others are experiencing around this topic is unrelated and has no correlation to anxiety. Anybody who says it is not going through this, is being hard headed and as well in a hurry to jump to a conclusion. Yes the symptoms include anxiety but it is not the root cause of the problem. Unfortunately when bringing up this topic with most health care "professionals" they just write it off as. I first started noticing the effects of this....

    Did instant coffee ruin the way my brain reacts to caffeine ???!!!

    Well as you can guess from the title ... I can't consume caffeine anymore. I have always enjoyed the occasional cup of coffee or tea to pick me up, however since moving to China to work I started drinking instant coffee. Its hard to say if I added too much consistently each cup or if there was a toxin linked to the caffeine but the result is I can no longer drink caffeine from any source. Every time I do I get massive brain fog (inability to concentrate or think clearly) its like someone threw....

    Become dizzy and confused for a few seconds and feel terrible all day

    I can be driving or anything usually after I wake up and get dizzy and confused. This happens when deep in thought. It's like ur brain starts having random thoughts and ur dizzy close to passing out. I've heard of painless migraines or a siezure could be the issue. It used to happen and that's all but now I get them and I feel horrible like in a fog for a long time after and it can last days. I forget stuff when I have them but I start remembering stuff I hadn't remembered in years....

    Possible head, nerve, and or nasal cavity injury. Many confusing undiagnosed symptoms.

    When I was 12-13 I was running fast in the hallway at school. I dropped my lunch box outward and while running I bent over to attempt to retrieve it and with my head tilted down I hit my head on the corner of a wall hard. I then had a big pool of blood about a few feet wide on the ground. I lived up in the Rocky Mountains and was taken to a small clinic there and they only gave me stitches. No ER room, no tests. The scar is about four inches long. When I was 14-15 my friend told me I could see cool....
