Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Numbness in face going to partial numbness that feels like a dental shot wearing off. Severe numbness and weakness on both sides, but especially left side. If stand for more than 10 or so minutes, leg starts shaking. Most times when walking, need a wall to guide me. When not completely numb, severe tingling in toes/feet and fingers/hands/wrists spreading up. Feels as if can't completely empty bladder. Difficulty forming words, easy forgetting, hard time remembering. Hand starts to shake when I try to grip things, hold things, writing. Sudden taste change before started topramax; change at end of December. Severe exhaustion. Super tired after 1-1/2 to 2 hours or less dependent on activities. Right arm jumps when at rest. Deep itchy shocking pain; keeps getting worse. Having problems with hands and feet staying warm; feel extremely cold all over even when it's warm. Severe chest pain especially on left side under armpit; feels as if being punched. Vision goes back and fort with blurryness and left eye shakes/twitches occassionally. Night vision is now gone; need some sort of lighting or get severely disoriented. No sense of hunger; have to remember to eat if I remember. Severe pain in fingers, hands, wrists feels as if severely swollen...makes using them extremely difficult. Severe tightness in chest as if a very heavy person sitting on chest; can't catch breath. During showers, feel extremely itchy. afterward, feels like electrical charges over whole body, then severe pain sets in and my head starts getting very foggy and ears ring even more. majority symptoms started March 18 which was over 2 months after being on topramax. These symptoms were not gradual, but hit fast. Two or 3 symptoms a day and worsening. I do see a counselor and a psychiatrist and know this is not anxiety related. Today, Thursday, April 16, saw a neurologist that was inattentive, visit was very short, he was only concerned with the symptoms that led to ER visit and not that symptoms have continued to get worse and that I developed more. Dr did not want to read my symptom diary, but was more concerned about what medications that I was taking. Dr did an eye test and announce that I did not have MS and that I need to seek psychiatric help.
