Sun, Apr 5 3:30am · Lithium: Haven't been taking it as I should. Odd side effects in Mental Health

I’ve been taking this dose for years. I having been forgetting to take my medicine and I was wondering if the reason why I’m feeling this way is because I’ve been forgetting it.

Sat, Apr 4 9:16pm · Lithium: Haven't been taking it as I should. Odd side effects in Mental Health

I haven’t been taking my lithium like I’ve been supposed to. I oversleep then it’s too late to take it. I’ve been weak, lost my appetite, headaches, body aches, chest feel funny, etc. I tested negative for both Covid and flu. So no it’s not that. My symptoms are worse at night with added hand and foot numbness and tight throat and heart races. Could it be my lithium? I’m supposed to take 600 mg a day. But I’ve Been forgetting. Help please.

Hi everyone, I’m 19 years old and lately I’ve been having trouble breathing. it’s almost like an anxiety or panic attack kinda breathing, but I’m not having a attack. I’ve been short of breath, taking real deep breathes, been yawning constantly even when I’m not sleepy. I’ve been low on energy and had Dyspnea attacks a lot. Im trying to get into the doctor. Also idk if this helps but last few times they did blood tests my CO2 have been low and the doctors didn’t know why.

It’s not just the panic attacks that bother me. During the day I feel sick and dizzy and I’m never really hungry. I eat but not enough, I’m just not hungry. I drink a ton of water but still get dehydrated. I generally just don’t feel good. I don’t have the energy to do anything since I was last at the hospital. I’ve never had a sleep study suggested because I’ve never had this problem. I’m a runner and my biggest concern is my dyspnea. I just don’t know. With everything goin on

I’ve not been truly diagnosed with anything. They keep saying it’s stress but I keep getting sick. It started wit my ear infections then led to low potassium and b12. And now everything else. I need a break. I can talk to my psychiatrist who has been trying to figure it out.

This might be long and belong in other groups too. I’m 19 years old. I have terrible panic attacks and I deal with fear a lot. This past 2 months have been terrible. So it started with me losing my job. After I got a double ear infection that moved to my sinus cavities. Then it went to my lungs. Then once all that was clear I started getting dizzy and I blacked out. Went to the ER, Turns out my potassium was low and I was dehydrated and my CO2 was extremely low. Went to my regular PCP and they did a follow up blood test and my potassium was fine but my B12 was really low and my CO2 was still low. 2 weeks later and I’m having trouble breathing with Air Hunger(Dyspnea) Attacks constantly and panic attacks only at night. I still get dizzy spells and I occasionally get dehydrated even though I drink constantly. I’m getting scared. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? My doctor keeps tagging it as stress. I’m tempted to go to the children’s hospital but I don’t have anyone to drive me. What should I do? Has anyone dealt with this? Any idea of what it could be?

Nov 24, 2019 · Ear Infection gone bad in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

He said the fluid that was in my ears, moved to my sinus cavities. But my ears still hurt. These dizzy spells scare me though. I get my antibiotics tomorrow. To see if they help, and if they don't within a week, to go back for blood tests.
