I shake alot mostly my hands but sometimes is feels like my hole body shakes, i get bad headaches some that t3's don;t even take away, i lay down and relax and most times fall asleep which is ok except when i wake up i have had weird experiences like i've gotten out of bed but i haven;t, brain sensations like vibrates and some movements in my arms twitch. I have had an MRI done results came back normal meaning no signs of stroke or tumor. Also had an EEG done as well when i was laying there on the bed hooked up to the electrodes my eyes could not stay still so the guy had asked me if this happens all the time i said yes and he asked me to place my fingures over my eyes so they would stop moving didn;t help any lol, anyway i think i need to call my pysch doc and ask him if the results are in because i kinda am getting freeaked out at this point because it;s getting worse. I take 125mgs of ZOLOFT, 0.5mgs klonopin twice daily and 50mgs of sereqoul daily. However i think that the klonopin has worn itself out and i need to try something new. Sorry for the rambling but i would like to know if other have had or do have the same sensations as i thanks to whom ever replies thanks Twiggy2

Hi Twiggy,

It is possible that some of the things you are describing are seizures, but there are many other possible explanations as well. It may even be side effects from your medications. Also if that isolated eeg does not show anything, it is possible to due 24hr eeg monitoring. They will put the electrodes on your head and give you a little pack to wear home. This way you are more likely to see seizure activity if it is only occasionally present. With this said, it is a very good idea to call your doc and discuss things with him/her. Hope this helps,

kurt

thanks i think that would be a good idea to have that done i will talk to him about that. I also understand that the meds play a part in it as well i been on them for so long now that i thought that most of the side effects would be none existent, but i will keep in touch. I don;t think an MRI would show seizures maybe in some people it may donlt know. Anyway thanks again Twiggy2.

I called my pysc doc office and i have a appointment tommorow, i explained whats been happening and maybe he will have some answers. I will let u know what he suggests. I think that maybe i need to be in the hospital again for a while for observation and tests possibly a 24 to 48 hour EEG or something anyway thanks for letting me vent Twiggy2 I kinda came pretty close to my breaking point the other night and i know i need to tell him that. Take care talk to ya later Twiggy2.

Hi there it;s me Twiggy2 i thought i was through with symptoms but in fact i haven't. I have trouble sleeping at night i take small naps in the afternoon and when i awake from my nap i have the symtoms like i am having a seizure, my brain buzzes, my eyes flutter and sometimes my body has some uncontrolled movements, i am going to have to keep a record of this as it is hard to explain to people especially my doc's. Anyway it's a bit scary i know i need to get on the right med but i am already taking klonopin 0.5 mgs twice daily and not doing anything. Well it;s upsetting in itself so i gonna go now i will keep in touch. Twiggy2

Hi Twiggy

I think it's a good idea to keep a record of any seizure or turns that you can remember so that when you do see your dr or neurologist all you have to give them a copy of the record you have.

I only take very mild seizures or 'funny turns' as I call them when I get a weird dream come into my head and my head feels funny. When I 1st started having these turns someone suggested to me to keep a record of the turns so I bought an exercise book. As soon as I take a turn I write down what I can remember about the turn (I can't always remember everything), if someone witnesses me taking a turn I ask the person what I was like when I took the turn then I write that down in my exercise book.

When the time comes to see my neurologist I type any turns I've had on the computer so they are more readble lol & print them out for the neurologist.

At 1st my neurologist didn't understand what I meant by my turns either & would ask me about the dreams, eventualy he started to understand.

Hiya Twiggy.

I can't honestly say that I have experienced them all together when coming round from seizures but I do experience them individually every now and again. Nothing to go to the doctor with I didnt think. So it is possible that they are after-effects of the seizure but it sounds like it could be something else. I hope your neuro appt comes in soon, a specialist should be able to help you. Keeping a record is a great idea because if your anything like me, you get to neuro appts and suddenly can't remember anything of what you wanted to say!

I hope things get sorted soon. Good Luck

Darren

Thank djdaz, i am going to request that i see a specialist for my back and talk to my pysch doc about the experinces i've been going through, i sometimes experince flashback of things that have happened in the past. I want them to go away completely but it;s not working out to well. Anyway i am so close to my appointment on the 3rd i will have to spill my guts to my doc. He kinda knows about the flashbacks but they are more intense now i hate it. anyway i'll talk to ya later and keep you posted as to what treatment options are out there to help me kinda get through it.
