  • I take the following doses of the above listed meds: vyvanse 70mg duloxetine 60mg klonopin 1mg 3xday as needed, levothyroxin 100mcg lamicatal 200 mg. My PCP suspects seratonin syndrome as I have all of the symptoms. Daily, I constantly get an electrical shock feeling in my brain when moving my eyes. Please help me.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • For the last 20-30 years I go through cycles where I am just too lethargic to function. I suffer from severe brain fog, lack of direction, sleep way too much, and am in an almost vegetative state and this could last anywhere from a few weeks to a few years. I do not believe it to be depression as I do not feel depressed. I feel unwell and quite often experience low grade fevers. I also have hemochromatosis and thyroid nodules, as well as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Bipolar Disorder and AV Nodal Re-entrant Tachycardia
