  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
  • Methylprednisolone none ending nightmer (1 response)
    methylprednisolone i call it dethylpredinsolone I feel as if my brain is shutting down at a very slow rate on 08/12/14 i walked to patient first of sterling, va. was diagnosed with poison oak/iv (depending on the doc.)then the doctor asked me if i have any allergy and i say yes to see shell foods and other bugs then she prescribes methylprednisolone . 4 days later i had become hipper agitated unable to do things with out messing things up so i stopped only 3 left or 2 day of treatment. i am developing slowing down brain function ,slow communication, dizziness, headaches,lose of appetite, lose of weight any sudden movement of my head simulates a mild brain seizure with lose of balance. after 2 days i go to other doctor at urgent care of sterling va. that had treated at least 4 episode of poison oak/iv in the past 7 years the doctor there told me nothing can be done i just have to wait it out and once to the emergency hospital aug.24,2014 they perform cat scan,blood test, heart test all and all is normal. (implied) diagnosis is the side effect of the drug methylprednisolone that it has to wear off but i am getting worst and not better it seams that i rather lay down its to be in a safe position today aug,29 2014 please tell me if you had this incapacitation experience and how long did it last thank you and godless. note: medical staff of all medical facilitates were preserved in there communication with me with out an exception there immediate respond was did you not read the side effect sheet i can not see a reason for saying this to me other then covering the negligent doctor (at least in there own mind) i just want to get better.
