Question: Hi. I have been feeling sick for 3 weeks. Nausea, dizziness like I'm out of equilibrium, thirsty, cramping in stomach and feet, cold and hot flashes. Alternating diarrhea and constipation. Constant headache/migraine. I have had blood work done: all normal except very low vitamin D which I supplement now. I was on lexapro which gave me terrible side effects so am now off of that. Was also on geodon but got off of that too. I have been diagnosed with gad and borderline personality. I have got what they called tension migraines for 3 years now. Should I have my brain scanned? I'm scared there's something going on. I cannot function anymore. I'm not pregnant and my ua came back normal. Help please!

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I would like to reassure you that your current symptoms do not point to any serious brain illness, and they are possibly related to anxiety and tension migraines.

Symptoms you should watch out for are- repeated vomiting, headaches on waking up from sleep, double vision, any weakness of limbs, etc. If you notice any of these, you could get a brain scan done.

So, at present, there is no need to worry. However, if a brain scan can reduce your anxiety, you could possibly get it done.

Wishing you good health,

I have headaches constantly. So when I wake up, the headache is there. Also, I see falling black and gold dots occasionally and sometimes my eyes twitch. I just can't keep living like this. I've tried medicine for migraines and it doesn't help. What could they do to alleviate my symptoms?

Hi,

Thank you for getting back with more details.

In addition to migraine medicines, anti-anxiety medications such as clonazepam would be useful.

For chronic migraine, botulinum toxin (botox) injections are also useful.

Please discuss these issues with your doctor.

Wishing you good health,

Hello,
I am a 38 yo white heathly attractive male who masturbates at least twice a day or more. I am not promiscuous, not as in my younger days...now I just watch internet porn or think about it. I Love sex and have since I can remember back to five years old playing with girls. I expected the intesity to lessen with age, but I have come to find out it is not and I am more and more beginning to embrace my nature as it seems this is how I am wired. Will the fire ever subside?

Yes, I suffer from severe migraines almost everyday and so does multiple immediate family members. We have with this our whole lives. But I have recently started having severe hair loss...clumps of hair multiple times a day. Could this have anything to do with my migraines ?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
