Tue, Jan 15 12:29pm · Cipralex/escitalopram & clonazapam.. I’m scared. in Depression & Anxiety

Hi, I am so sorry you are dealing with this.:( My son has social phobia and panic disorder. I wish I had an answer, but if you are feeling sedated to that extent, one or both meds needs adjustment or changed to a different medication. I would caution adding sedating supplements without consulting your doctor as some are dangerous. If I come across any medical literature regarding this, I will let you know. My son takes clozaril and lorazepam. I am hopeful that research will soon find breakthroughs in treatment or a cure for anxiety. My heart goes out to you.

Dec 30, 2018 · extreme outer ear pain in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Hi everyone! It is nice to see that I am not crazy and a group of us exist who understand each other's miserable ear pain.
We seem to have some variances associated with the pain as well as some similarities. I wonder how many of us share any of the following:

*Severe pain affecting both ears, mainly when lying on one's side with the head and ear resting against the pillow (My ears cannot touch anything during sleep, including a pillow.)
*Autoimmune disease
*Above average stress level
*Small fiber neuropathy
*Raynaud's
*Definitely over age 29, 39 or higher! 😉

In regards to the foggy vision and vertigo, see your primary physician as well as an ophthalmologist and ENT, respectively.

Note regarding relapsing polychondritis but the specialist that I saw for this said that with that condition, there will be gradual deformity of the ear; generally the ear enlarged and the top of the ear will droop. I do not have the physical characteristics.

I have had this same problem for many years. It is not relapsing polychondritis. It is not an autoimmune inner ear disease. The pain is triggered when I lie down on my side, with my ear touching a very soft pillow. Pillow softness does not prevent the outer ear cartilage pain. I know many people who can lie with their head against a pillow and sleep without pain. I used to be one of them. Many of us 'oddballs', exist and suffer from this"mystery diagnosis". I keep waiting for our superhero to appear and remove this pain forever.
