    Parkinsons and Lewy Body Dementia

    Yesterday I was unable to get my husband awake. I tried at 6am, 7am, 9am and noon. He would stir a little then right back asleep. He has previously been diagnosed with Parkinsons and Lewy Body. I initially thought he had had a bad night. When I finally got a response from him at noon, he was very confused and disoriented. He was unable to walk steadily. He shuffled his feet when walking. I had to help him back to his chair. He kept dosing off. I called EMS and they transported him to the hospital....

I'm just really confused about what the fluid is for a mri with contrast???

    Concussion 2 years later

    I never thought I had concussions. turns out all the times I saw stars after diving for balls were all mild concussions.

I played again a week later and the rest is history. I came home from that game and could not leave a dark room for over 3 months. The next year was terrible. Every day I was nauseous and bad sensitivity to light, sounds, etc....

    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....
