Peaceful start of a dream then seeing myself or family,friends get slottard.crazy thing is I don't watch scary movies or the news.

  • Benadryl completed suicide 50 year old
    My mother comitted suicide by taking a bottle of Benadryl. She also had been drinking, she had taken xanax and drank beer, she also took 300 Benadryl pills and started having seizures and went to the hospital was brain dead and her heart stopped the next morning.
  • 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.
  • Leg pain and occasional arm and hand pain
    I started having leg pains at night, lower leg felt like the muscle and bone were being pulled causing sharp pain. It was relieved by getting up and walking but would last most of the night.

    I finally realized after suffering this over and over for months, that it only happened when I had taken benadryl.

    It seems that the benadryl causes it after taking it within one hour, I don't know why I didn't connect this until yesterday. Sometimes, more rarely, I also had arm and hand pain.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Upper abdominal pain, gave me percocet on the Emergency room, very itchy skin and nausea

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Overall: Diabetes stays under 120, testosterone levels remain low for age (48, but testosterone levels of 90 year old man). Atypically small penis, testes often recede so that the scrotum is flat and tight. Bi-sexual with periodic gender issues (desire to be feminine). Married, two children and no family issues to include sexual oddities, wife is supportive.

    I am reluctant to bring up sexual and gender issues to Doctor, but have the feeling that gender drift (feelings), small penis and receding testicles and attraction to both sexes (including transgendered males with feminine qualities and penis). I know that all of this makes me rather unusual in terms of societal norms, but this is an honest assessment to the best of my ability. I started becoming sexually active at 13 years old with males first and later (15) with females. I desire only a relationship with a female or shemale (preferable but not realistic so I don't dwell on it).

    Despite gender struggles from 14 to present I joined the US Army and went Airborne and Special Forces, spending a majority of my adult life (even unitl present) as an operator in Special Forces (albeit my age is making that more and more difficult).

    I'm looking for a medical opinion that takes in current health conditions and issues, sexual history and other factors that are tell tale signs of a condition that I am unaware of.

    Forgot to mention that I have one son who has only one testicle but is not infertile. He was operated on at 3 to determine is it was an undescended testicle, however no trace of a second testicle was found. In his 20s he fathered a female child and still no trace of second testicle.
