You will need medications and psychoeducation  ( ideally with your partner) to understand the normal bodily changes accompanying pregnancy. Also there are some medications which needs to be avoided during pregnancy. Especially the antipsychotic medications. So I suggest you to have a detailed discussion with your doctor before planning for a child

My son has schizophrenia; he believes he is being targeted by the outside forces. He believes a person by the name of Dr. John Hall in Texas and someone named Roger Tallis in California can help him. He refuses to believe he has a mental illness. How can I best help him? Also have you ever heard of these people before?

I have been suffering from an extreme pressure feeling in my head for almost a year now. It is concentrated at the top of my head, forehead, eyes, and the top of my nose. The pressure feeling originated during an episode of psychosis and has not left since, even though I have long since recovered from the psychosis. Prior to my psychosis, I had been a heavy cannabis user. I stopped immediately with the psychosis and have not used it since (never again). I used to have some minor sinus issues due to heavy smoking, and I understand a sinus infection can cause pressure in the head, but this would of course be a very long lasting sinus infection. To elaborate, I would have to clear my nose each morning and sometimes more frequently throughout the day back when I smoked. I quit smoking cigarettes too about seven months ago. The pressure feeling in my head started at the onset of my psychosis, prior to any medications. It has also lasted long after any medications. The original onset of the pressure feeling was unbearable with my head pounding and feeling like it was going to explode. The pressure feeling has taken my life away to the point where nothing is enjoyable, working is torture (I am a CPA), and basic tasks like cooking and laundry are something to dread for me. I have tried pain relievers, sinus medication / antibiotics, excercise, a healthy diet, proper sleep, spending months in a stress free environment, and had an MRI (nothing noted). The pressure feeling has remained an all day, every day, thing. I have had only brief moments lasting a few hours on a handful of days where I have not been suffering much.

My brother started out with a swollen tongue a few days ago. Now he s been having hallucinations and is not making sense when he talks. I mean, you can understand what he s saying but what he s saying doesn t make sense. Can you think of a reason why this is happening?

I have been taking behavior meds for schizophrenia for seven years and one of the side effects is that it will make it difficult for me to get pregnant and me and my partner are ready to have kids but I m afraid that I may not be able to because of the number of years I have been on my meds. Is there a behavior med that wouldn t make it difficult for me to get pregnant and if I get off of them would I still be able to get pregnant or would the meds have been absorbed and I may never get pregnant?

i m a clinical social worker. 14 year old client has micradenoma on or near pituitary gland. Some hormone levels were elevated but she was examined by neurologist and no surgery necessary they say. Has all kinds of symptoms -- racing thoughts, visual hallucinations at times, out of control anxiety, rage outbursts, trouble reasoning and little access to insight, preoccupied about her body and somatic complaints, defiance. However she doesn t really seem bipolar or schizophrenic, though she was Dx d bipolar. I don t think it looks psychiatric, it seems so odd and doesn t add up to any one Dx. Neurologists told parents the tumor had nothing to do wiht any of this, what do you think??
