    Since December ive had been dealing with a variety of symptoms. All day long internal quirving, extreme muscle tension feels like Im constantly flexing my muscles when iam indeed not.

Not the other way around. It feels whatever. Is going wrong is 90 % physical and 10% mental. Xanex is a god send for the panic and....

    No Money to visit a Doctor for Diagnosis..... (Involuntary) Tics Becoming too much to bear

    I have had something happen since I was young (around 9-10) where I cycle through different types of tics or spasms. Typically they have been motor manifestations, such as a relentless series of unstoppable jolts of my head in a movement similar to a nod (the one I’m doing right now), or sharply drawing my elbow backward and inward to the point where it hurts my shoulder and makes it feel severely eroded. Others include the sharp sudden clenching of my abdominal muscles or the flicking of my big....

    Rabies - do I need to seek immediate post-exposure treatment?

    Hi, My girlfriend and I live in Hanoi, Vietnam. About 9 hours ago she was bitten by a dog on the street. The dog didn't seem rabid as it only bit her as she went to pet it and wouldn't bite it's owner, but did seem fairly aggressive towards us. We went to the hospital anyway and she received immunoglobin and post-exposure treatment. I am unvaccinated against rabies. The dog didn't bite me, however after she was bitten I wiped away the blood on her and some of it got on my hand, I....

    Prescription the meaning of C1

    My friend was prescribed the following “Adco-alzam 0,5mg PRN/ BID C1 (60) repeat 06.” (For the treatment of anxiety.) My question is; what do C1 stand for or represent? The pharmacist who dispensed this interpreted it as ‘one tablet twice a day as needed’, although the doctor now claims he advised ‘a quater tablet twice daily as needed’. I understand this medication is highly addictive and would not want my friend to become dependent on a higher dose if not necessary.

    Comatose patients

    Can a patient be in a comatose state if a surgical procedure done on him is in the abdomen area? He had minimal brain bleeding because of the car accident but he ended up in a coma. Can he also regain brain activity if the doctors have found he only has 21% brain activity right now?

    Dizziness, lack of balance and fatigue still 8 months after lumbar spinal fusion surgery for Spondylolisthesis

    I'm hoping this is familiar to someone. I had a 2 level lumbar spinal fusion and a vertebrae replaced with a donor bone in July of last year. Since the surgery I have experienced dizziness (not spinning) /lightheadedness / disorientation and really bad balance. I get tired very quickly and as I get tired everything gets worse. My brain seems to quit working too, when I'm really tired. I can't think straight and my fingers fumble when I try to handle things. A VNG test was run by my ENT....

    Light headed, loss of vision, fainting while standing

    Hi I am 19 years old and over the past few years I have experienced spells where I would get lightheaded and pass out upon standing up.

I will be standing there, start to feel light headed and hot, my vision will get blurry, and within a minute or two I will pass out. I am only out for about 5 seconds....

    I was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis when I was 13 and I am now 22. My neurologist said there is nothing he can do as he finds it too risky. Recently I have been getting tingly on my whole left side of my body and I am guessing it's cause of the tumor on the spinal cord. Not sure if I should even see him if there is nothing they can do.

    My brother was shot in the head on January 14 ,2018 we where told by a neurologist that his frontal lobe was damaged . They told us to give him a year to see if he could recover but his chances are low . He is 32 and breathes on his own . I wanted to know why his eyes opens and wonders around , also when my mother rubbed his legs he got an erection . And he tends to yawn sometimes .Why do those things happen ? Are they any good ?
