    Did I have a seizure?

    Approximately a month ago I received surgery. While waiting they inserted the IV and started administering a painkiller before the operation. During this I blacked out and had strange flashbacks. I woke up still shaking a bit with my jaw clenched tight but had no idea where I was for about 10 seconds. I was stressed out and my blood pressure dropped to 40/80. My friend in the room told me it looked like a seizure. I didn’t think much of it until last night when I was playing games with friends and....

    Brain Cyst - Symptoms and correlation

    I am 20 years old in my first year of university. I have been visiting back and forth with the doctors for approximately 18 months, complaining of the same symptoms: Nausea, focused headaches, spells of dizziness, tremor in my neck and back with certain movements, anxious mood and fatigue which is very bad in the first few hours of the day. I was finally referred for a brain scan where the doctor told me they incidentally found a 4.5cm Cyst on my back right posterior. With a mass report of 'Mild'....

    Belly Button Sensation

    Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right message board, as I'm not sure whether what I'm experiencing is nerve related, but for the past few days, I've been experiencing the sensation in my belly button area that feels as though someone is poking and twisting my belly button with a stick. It's a severely uncomfortable tingling sensation that's been going non stop. I've been examined by a physician at an urgent care and they were unable to diagnose it. It doesn't seem....

    Do you have a community for migraine disease?

    I've been suffering fro migraine disease for over 50 years now. There are some (few) exciting new developments but I find the medical community as a whole is still vastly in the dark ages. Any current studies that would be helpful to help urge my neurologist into the enlightened ages?

    Experiencing a seizure

    Hi there. I was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy and was curious, when you experience a trigger or something you thought could be, would you experience the seizure right then and there? Or would it lay dormant for however long until it just comes up? I have experienced all of my seizures when I'm asleep. My doctor says I've experienced triggers sometime in the day and they all lay in my head until they come out and that's when I get my seizures. To me this seems all a bit hard to believe....

    Numbness, muscle twitching, and no diagnosis? Read this.

    I felt compelled to write this a year and a half after first experiencing neurological issues because #1, it seems that a lot of folks who have similar undiagnosed conditions simply "disappear" online (hopefully that means they've gotten better), and #2, I am still alive after a year and a half, so my goal is to give hope to anyone who is experiencing similar symptoms and have not had any luck with a diagnosis. First things first. If you have not seen any neurologists, stop reading....

    Conversion Disorder and a multitude of other medical conditions

    I am a 40 year old female who has been an athlete most of my life. I have gotten the run around from various doctors regarding my illnesses. They kept telling me it was all in my head; however, I have had several or more concussions since '96 and never remembered until 20+ years later. I don't know who to believe or who to trust. I am literally sick and tired of being a lab rat or guinea pig for new medications. Will someone please tell me the truth and stop BS-ing around and insulting my....
