Jan 5, 2012 · Tardive Dyskinesia in Brain & Nervous System

I remember someone I knew with TD. It was from Haldol. Her Dr. Had her take Benadryl everyday. It helped a lot. Although it did make her drowsy.

Jan 5, 2012 · Testosterone Levels in Men's Health

I’m a 37 yr old male. As part of a checkup my Dr ran a testosterone test.
I’ve been a little sluggish, less energy, concentration issues and less drive. Everything else was normal. My testosterone count was 275. It was on the low end, but still in the normal range. He told me that my normal may be different from another persons normal. Now…if it’s the first time I have been tested…how does he know that is my normal?

Jan 4, 2012 · Sleep Paralysis diagnosis in Sleep Health

I had a sleep paralysis state a few years ago. I have social anxiety. The Dr. gave me Xanax to take as needed. When I took a Xanax in the later afternoon the trouble began.

As I began to fall asleep, I would get very tense and “froze.” I was laying on my back in bed and I could open my eyes, could not speak, could barely swallow, and could not move. It would last about 2-3 minutes. And then I felt a release. I could move again. It was very scary. The Dr. acted as of he’d never heard of that before. I experimented not taking Xanax and the paralysis didn’t occur. It was clearly the Xanax.

I know Xanax alters some brain chemicals. Maybe you’re taking something like Xanax or another med and it’s giving you a side effect? I haven’t experienced that since stopping Xanax.

Jan 4, 2012 · Unknown Body Odor in Digestive Health

1. It might just be in your head. You may have misinterpreted a signal from someone and you took it personally.
2. Some people don’t digest the right way. You could have food particle stuck in your gut somewhere and the bacteria that grow give off odor.
3. Teeth problems. Loose fillings. Bacteria can grow in there.

I would go to the dentist and then a Gastroenterologist.

Jan 4, 2012 · Adult ADHD in Mental Health

I’m 37. I’ve had ADD symptoms since I was in grade school. I am very creative. I tend to RBI k of multiple things at once. I’m a very strategic thinker. I am very anticipatory when thinking or speaking with people. I have a constant problem of focusing on what someone is telling me. I will start thinking of other things and will soon get lost in the conversation. It’s affected me at work. It’s lost me s few past jobs. Yet I have always had past professors and co-workers tell me how creative and sharp I am. All that creativity and sharpness hasn’t helped me stay focused on the job. I have many years of college, yet could never decide on a major. It was science and business. But never did what I needed to do to obtain the degree.

I was tried Ritalin. It gives me a clear and cool refreshed feeing. The problem is that is has lactase or some kind of milk product in it. Bin lactose intolerant. The same goes for all the other common ADD meds. I understand that the new one called Vyvanse is milk free. I’d like to try it but I was recently let go from a position. It’s expensive. I take Ativan as needed and it helps calm my thoughts which I often describe as mirroring fireworks. Lots of good and creative thoughts….but when you don’t apply them…they’re just that…thoughts. I’ve tried all the SSRI’s. They did nothing except take my sex drive away, constipate me and mess with my coordination.

I also learned at a checkup that I’m deficient in Vitamin D. I believe my number was 5. I was out on supplements but it barely rose. I read somewhere that vitamin d deficiency can contribute to many problems, some of which include concentration, etc. So I am now taking 5000 IU of D everyday.

Jan 4, 2012 · Social phobia in Depression & Anxiety

I’ve had it for a while. I get very tense when at the shopping mall, market or anywhere else with larger amounts of people. My lips get clenched, I sometimes sweat and I feel like I have to disappear away from the scene.

Jan 4, 2012 · Need to talk about anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

I had some OCD years ago coupled with social anxiety. I tried Anafranil. It worked well.
