Hi,christine,please report this to your doctor.There are chances of this being some convulsion or breath holding spasm.this needs to be clarified and treated accordingly.Stroke is not the issue at all.But report this to your doctor.Any high grade fever can lead to this.bye and take care.

Hi I went to the doctor with extreme pain in my ear and headaches. Come to find out I had an ear infection and received medication. After three weeks I still have popping in my left year and called my doctor for an opinion. She told me that it appears I have TMJ and gave me several medications to take to help ease the pain. Its been a month and the popping and headache is still there. Every once in a while there is discharge. Could it be something else or should I contact my dentist??

Hi. I just started taking 40mg a day of prednisone for my Crohn s. Have had Crohn s for twenty years...had 12in of small intestines removed twenty years ago. Was on prednisone before surgery for almost 3 years. Have not had any issues since surgery but was on antibiotic five weeks ago for ear infection. Started having so much nausea from antibiotic and did not go away after stopping antibiotic so family doctor said I needed to see my GI doctor. GI doctor is 95% sure that I have a little Crohn s inflammation. Doctor prescribed 40mg of prednisone for two weeks and then tapper down 10mg every two weeks for next 8 weeks. During the whole ear infection issue my anxiety flared up so family doctor put me on 20mg of Celexa, which I have been on before. Been on prednisone for five day now and have noticed little more nervousness and anxiety, particularly in morning when I wake up. Sleeping has not been good for weeks so started taking .5mg of clonazepam at bed time to help sleep. I know this is a lot of info but I guess I have a couple of questions: 1. I m assuming the nervousness is coming from prednisone, but will it decrease? 2. Is it a better time of day to be taking antibiotic and Celexa? Thanks
