  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • Went to bed and was awakened by panic attack and difficult swallowing. Finally returned to sleep and slept through the night. Today after eating normal breakfast I took my normal morning medications. A couple hours later began to develop same symptoms again. In addition to dry mouth and difficult swallowing, tongue feels swollen and lips tingling.

  • Symptoms have been going on for three years. Doctor's have done MRI's, CT's, Ultrasounds, and several lab test. They have yet to find any cause for the nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Only thing they have not tried is discontinuing some of the medicine.
