    Anyone ever have strange feelings like crawling skin .. Feels like bugs are crawling across your face and arms?
  • Support group for people who have Insomnia
    Hi Everyone - I am desperate to talk to people who suffer like me. I have RLS and insomnia. I take Mirapex, Gabapenten, and have tried about 6 different kinds of sleeping pills and for the last 3 years I sleep about 3 to 4 hours a night. I can fall asleep but I cannot stay asleep. I am so sick of living like this. Nothing helps to keep me asleep. I go to bed at the same time every night (9) and around 1:00am, I wake up to go to the bathroom then the nightmare begins.... I cannot go back to sleep. I feel tired, depressed, alone and desperate for help. I have been to the Mayo Clinic twice and to numerous doctors and although they try, I can't get better. I exercise everyday for 1 - 1&1/2 hrs a day. I do not have any other health issues at all. This is a real big problem and a awful way to live. I just feel so alone and sad.

  • Dymista gave me insomnia and nightmares
    I have been taking Dymista for two weeks and it is fantastic for clearing up allergy symptoms. However, for the past two weeks I have had an extremely hard time trying to fall asleep; it is like I have insomnia. When I do fall asleep which usually last around an hour or so either day or night I have very vivid nightmares
  • Took buspirone once and got a blister
    Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
  • Lyrica is giving me nightmares
    I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
    But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.
  • Melatonin and diarrhrea
    A lifetime of wakefulness during the night, almost never more than 7 hrs sleep and awake 2-4 times a night. Return to sleep easily. Doctors gave sleep aids. Usually somewhat ineffective and sometimes groggy mornings. So I decided to go the more natural route ... melatonin. Worse. It did not work for me. It gave me some if the wateriest and longest lasting diarrhea of my life. The uncontrolled continuous diarrhea was worse than not sleeping at night. Not listed as one of the side affects of Melatonin. More people should be made aware of the dangers of this dehydration.
  • Alevert d-12 long term side effects
    I took Alevert D-12 approximately 4-6 days every week for 5-7 years.
    I know have bad aches pains in my bones, joints and can't sleep well cause I wake up several times a night. I don't have true REM during sleep so I feel tired but can't sleep. When I get off the Alevert for a week i'm able to sleep normally. However I've gotten off for a week's time lately and the aches and pains due to bone/joint inflamation type feeling gets worse. I'm going to try to get off it for extended lenght of time see if the bone/joint aches go away. I'll provide feedback in the near future. I ask the editor of this page to please stay in touch with me via email so I can correspond with continued results and progress. Thank you all for posting and sharing your experiences! This is truelly helpful to everyone.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have been diagnosed with a schizophrenic disorder for almost 4 years now and as you can see I have been tested with a lot of different antipsychotic medications- some of which has given me severe side-effects and last month I was also diagnosed with alopecia because I am under constant stress/anxiety and fear and I am desperate to find out if these medications has had an impact on this newly discovered stress-related illness- alopecia. Having such a severe psychological illness and all which it brings with medicational side-effects and what-not and on top of that having to fall apart on the outside-being a young woman- loosing ones hair and see ones fingernails crumble was the very last...last thing I needed to be honest. *sigh*...

    I suffer severe pain all over my body especially on my legs. My doctor prescribed Arthrotec and i took it for about 4 days. All my pain dissappeared but i developed purplish rashes under my breast, patches all over my body, almost like welts....really very scary. The rashes are not going away and my skin feels dead. I've used some creams for rashes and it is not helping. Went back to the doctor and he suggested splitting a pill in half...hail no!!! I am not taking this medication again.

    see the project cyborg prof. kevin warwick and ubniversity columbia
    "By means of the implant, Warwick's nervous system was connected onto the internet in Columbia University, New York. From there he was able to control the robot arm in the University of Reading and to obtain feedback from sensors in the finger tips. He also successfully connected ultrasonic sensors on a baseball cap and experienced a form of extra sensory input.[37]

    A highly publicised extension to the experiment, in which a simpler array was implanted into the arm of Warwick's wife—with the ultimate aim of one day creating a form of telepathy or empathy using the Internet to communicate the signal from afar—was also successful in-so-far as it resulted in the first direct and purely electronic communication between the nervous systems of two humans.[38] Finally, the effect..."
