CDear Doctor, my son has been treated w/various antipsychotics over the past 4 1/2 years while living in Croatia.He suffers from major psychotic depression and has responded favorably to electro-stimulus treatments for his condition,whereas when antipsychotics were administered he suffered from a major crisis of neuroleptic malignant syndrome(CPK 5,000). He was immediately taken off all antipsychotics and flushing out his system was begun. He was doing alright at home w/only a small daily dose of valium(Normabel) which he would take on occaision. However he had a relapse w/ deteriorating condition characterized by not speaking,eating and drinking only minimally and anxiety w, drooling. frequently he would display a state of confusion and be oblivious to his surroundings. Lorazepam 2mg dosages are being considered w/ eventual ES treatments.However it has been very difficult to arrange this in Croatia. What is your sense of what is happening to my son,Luka? What can you suggest given this brieand incomplete history of illness?Yours,a very worried and concerned father.
my son who is 34 years old has what was diagnosed as cannibald hemersis syndrome, which i believe is cyclic vomiting syndrome. It has been going on now for the last 5 years but more frequently at least 2-3 times per year. His father has an autoimmune disease graves disease, diabetes and either hyper or hypothyroidism. As if that is not enough I have an autoimmune disease sarcoidosis which became neurosarcoidosis at one time in life but now I do not experience all of the symptoms. We have lived in environments with mold and I was wondering if that could be the culprit of his sickness along with a mixture of inherited diseases from his father and me. I also wonder if he is being poisoned? When he goes to the ER, his heart rate, liver (ketosis), dehydration, blood pressure high help us please. This is the first time that a doctor has told us about cannibald...he has too much MJ in his system which is causing it, oh, he takes showers/bath at least 10-30 per day which makes him feel better when he is sick.
I have been told by my doctor that I could have compartment syndrom in both of my l lower legs. Reviewing the list of symptoms, I don t have any listed and I have never had an injuries, ect, to my legs. I have had 3 angygrams (veins checks), MRI of my hip, back surgery 3 years ago, physical therapy, stopped taking some of my medications for awhile and still no relief. Some times it feels like someone has taken a mop handle and put it through my foot up to my hip. I have had this condition now for over 5 years. My doctors have referred me to UVA for the testing. Could someone have diagnosticed me incorrectly? The pain started when I would walk about 1/2 block, my lower legs would tighten up so much I had to stop for a few minutes and go a few more yards. Now it is difficult to walk around my house. I m freaking out, can you suggest anything? Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

My wife had been taking Seroquel XR 300MG at night for about 10 years and died in Jan. A autopsy was done and I was told the cause was 2 things. 1 was gall stones 2 was Seroquel. Is Seroquel a bad drug if so why has it not been warned and why does the Doctors not required to have their patents have monthly blood tests and physicals done?
my wife ( 56 yrs)has been advised last june (2012 ) to take lonazep .5 and .25 in a day with qutan .25 and .5 for agitation and sizures . she has been diagnosed with FTLD with some psychiatric manifestation . her condition worsened over 8/9 months gradually .. sphincter control completely affected with incontinence for last two months . lonazep was increased to 2 mg in a day and now reduced again to 1 mg and asked to reduce further by .125 every fortnight .Her agitation and violence was very high when we started reducing lonazep .
Should we continue such medication for a patient who is rather suffering from dementia than any other type ?
