From this study (1 month ago):
I have become aware, within the last 2 years, that I have been moving the back of my tongue at a rapid rate. I didn't realize that I was doing it until about 2 years ago. I am able to stop doing it when I think about it, but when not paying attention, I start doing it again. When I am anxious or under pressure, it increases and becomes unpleasant for me. I was recently diagnosed with Tardive dyskinesia, but I don't know much about it. Could it get worse? My neurologist believes that my voice changed --- can tardive dyskinesia change one's speaking voice? I will be seeing the diagnosing doctor within the month.
From this study (2 months ago):
I started to suffer from symptoms of Narcolepsy in January 2011. I wasn't officially DX until Aug 2011, then was RX Nuvigil (2x / day 250 mg). Actual DX is Narcolepsy with Cataplexy. By Feb. 2012, 13 months after onset of symptoms and six months after beginning Nuvigil, I started to suffer from severe cognitive deterioration and short term memory loss, that continues to persist to today (May 2014).
This cognitive deterioration and short term memory loss is extremely frustrating and I describe myself as feeling like an Alzheimber's patient, as well as someone who has had a labotomy. I no longer can multi task, or even complete basic functions on a timely basis - and it is extremely frustrating to me.
