    Minor tremors and Ridgid muscle movements

    Hi there. I decided to post this to see if anyone has any experience with this odd medical situation I’ve been having for the last week. Before I go into further detail I just want to preface by saying that I do have a doctors appointment set up next week because I know most of the responses below are probably going to consist of recommendations to make a doctors appointment to get a proper diagnosis, which is completely understandable. So about a couple weekends ago a buddy of mine gave me a homemade....
  • Vagus Nerve Problems?

    I'm a 46 year old female who has always been in decent help. August of last year, my heart suddenly started skipping beats. They diagnosed me with PVCs and I had an ablation done 10/31/17. I am now having worse PVCs, very symptomatic and another ablation wont fix the over 200 areas w/i my heart misfiring. So they suggested an afib medication. I'm terrified of meds, so I stasrted doing some reading and one of the things that came to light was the vagus nerve. At the same time as my heart,....

    Could a brain bleed from 2016 be the reason my dad has lost his singing ability?

    My dad has always struggled with hearing loss, but could sing well. Now he is down to 19% hearing ability. But in 2016, he also had a brain bleed that was pressing on the part of the brain that helps him speak. The surgery was successful and he talks the same as he ever did, but what could be more of the contributing factor for his terribly off-key singing?

    Head pressure and popping

    Hi, I'm posting on behalf of my bf who, as a child, experienced several episodes of head popping, followed by a warm, flowing sensation in his head. It was not located near his ears, but all over. As an adult he feels constant pressure around the sides of his head.

    Epileptic with history of TIA. is numbness and tingling on one side of body seizure aura or stroke ?

    I am a very unusual person. I have a messed up nervous system. I have epilepsy and a blood clotting disorder called Anti-phospholipid sysndrome. Recently when I am working (I work in food service. So pretty stressed out) I start experiencing a headache, vision changes, nausea, and a tingling feeling on the left side of my body. I am not new to numbness and tingling as part of my normal seizure auras. But it usually only occurs on my face. Feeling numb on the entire left side of my body is a new symptom....

    Numb feeling

    Every so often it can be weeks or months apart I have these days were I get a numb feeling that comes over me like it travels up my spine and I can't do anything for a minute then I go back to normal. My body goes week and I get a tingling feeling in my hands. I usually blank from what I was doing and stop speaking and space out until the feeling has passed. When I have one of these days I will have multiple episodes of going numb in the day but then can go a month without it happening. If anyone....

    dizziness, blurry vision, nose twitching?

    i’ve just been freaking out a lot recently. i don’t know what’s going on with me. right now i have this crushing fear i must be dying of a brain tumor. i haven’t really been having headaches, but i feel dizzy from time to time, and my vision seems kind of unfocused. i went to my eye doctor who did an exam, he said my optic nerve was healthy and not to worry but to take drops for dry eye. i’ve also seen my GP and had blood work done, it was all normal, even though i don’t know how much that matters....

    Side effects?

    Hi I'm 13 and I get headaches a lot and my pediatrician is trying to get me to see a neurologist. And she ordered a mri so the don't have to do one when I go there. She ordered one with contrast and without. What I'm wondering is what is the fluid they put in the IV?! Can it have side effects or what? I'm just really confused about what the fluid is for a mri with contrast???

    Migraine?

    I had sudden and unexpected head pain either in my left or right temple or the back of head and it usually lasts seconds to minutes, and sometimes after that I have milder headaches throughout the day.

Other symptoms include nausea, sensitive to light and sound, pain on my lower right stomach, tingling sensation in head (it feels like someone is tickling my brain), muscle spasms, shaking, random cough attacks, neck pain, and tightness around throat. I....

    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....
