Hello everyone. I am a 58 year old female living in SW Virginia. I was hit crossing the street in 2003 and was unable to work until 2009. I worked at home taking cust service calls from Oct 2009 until October 2013. Was feeling good and no health issues except in 2012 I had surgery for carpal tunnel, torn meniscus in knee and skin cancer removed on face. Then in June 2013, I went to sit down and chair collapsed and twisted arm behind me and threw me to the floor on right side of face. Next day I went to Dr feeling like a bad whiplash and arm hurt. Saw many different Dr's and was told I had TMJ so I got a bite plate made. Pain kept getting worse and neck started to spasm and grab. Got migrane that lasted 8 weeks and base of skull felt like it was in vice grip. Finally in April 2014 I was diagnosed with a 40% tear in rotator cuff and cervical dystonia and started Botox injections. Then I developed cranial dystonia with blepharospasm in my eyes, Oromandibular dystonia, laryngeal dystonia, dysphagia and my esophagus is spasmodic. I recently read about the trigeminal nerve and wonder if that's part of my too. It's so crazy how a quick accident like a chair breaking can change your like forever! What's really crazy is the chair was in a nurse's office where my mother was being transferred from hospital to for rehab from a fall. That's my story and thanks for letting me share it with you.
Hello. I am 45 yo male. I started Vyvanse 2 months ago. I've had a profound increase in libido. This has led to some unwanted thoughts, primarily thoughts of sex 24/7. Not just sex, but intense sexual desire for 'wide open' encounters that didn't interest me before. Anyone else out there have this side effect?
ER two mornings in a row on vacation. Now I'm scared to drive or even be alone. Basically what has happened is i've lost consciousness and can't be aroused. These are not quick faints; I'm out for 30-40 minutes I've had such episodes every two years or so for about twenty years but now they're ...
Hi. I ended up being hospitalized after one month being on wellbutrin sr. I became so psychotic and manic. I was paranoid to the max. I have never had any symptoms like this in my entire life. has anyone heard of someone going through something like this after taking wellbutrin sr?
I just start Vyvanse 30mg a week ago. The first day I was in heaven, but that went away. Now I seem to clinch my teeth, have headaches and seem 'out of it' at times. The overeating hasn't stopped yet either. How do I know that I need a higher dose? Is 40 mg ALOT stronger, or not really?
