    Forgets About Items in Left Hand

    My father is suddenly showing some signs that I would normally associate with dementia (forgetting to close a car door when going inside, or leaving items out that previously would have been put away, or getting easily confused when trying to send email, for example - all brand new behaviors in the last 2 months). However, one symptom in particular is very peculiar. He forgets that he has an object in his left hand. For example, he walked out of a restaurant with a food tray in his left hand after....

  • My Serotonin Levels

    Greetings, Last year I did a serotonin blood test and after two weeks I got my result which was 200 ng/ml (the range between 56 to 244) but before that I was taking Pharmaton dietary supplement and I kept taking for a while after the test but I started to feel some sort of depression so I decided to stop it but I still have the same feeling. Could pharmaton unexpectedly raised my serotonin levels 'cause it contains ginseng? Thanks

    Can elevators cause a concussion?

    I was at a three day conference staying on the 12th floor of a hotel. I was going on the elevator for about five round trips a day at least and I felt a lot of weird vertigo on the second and third day but I thought it was just from being on the elevator which made constant stops on most trips. It’s three days later and I still am feeling that vertigo (though it’s not quite as bad), have had some headaches and have felt unusually sad. It’s been harder than normal to do school work but I also have....

    Convulsive fainting spells related to anxiety?

    I'm a 21 year old woman who had dealt with "fainting spells" all my life. They happen most often when I'm at the doctor/dentist where my anxiety is extremely high. When I was younger I would simply pass out for a few seconds and regain consciousness. The past few times however I have appeared to stop breathing and convulse as if having a seizure but come to quickly, which doesnt indicate epilepsy. I believe it may be Convulsive Syncope or Vasovagal Syncope. Could that be the issue....

    Random loss of control of one side of body

    Hi! I dont know if I post this on the right message borad, but here seems most appropriate. I am living with this my whole life and I am just curious what I am dealing with. Sometimes I loose partial control of my left sife of body (face, arm and leg). I can hardly contol it. Legs and arms go flying everywhere. When it happens I cover it to stand still and put my arm into my pocket (I can tear my pockets when the "attack" is big). This usualy happens when I suddenly need to move (for example....
