 Hi everyone--- Saw my "NEW "neuro" today!    He was so...nice...personable...an excellent Dr---AND gave me...a lot of time!    
 
To 'refresh'...your memories----I'm having a really bad...outbreak....of..."muscle myoclonus"...ALL over my body....& my "hemifacial spasm"...has started to spread!
 
Last 5 weeks...have been HELL!  Whenever I..."Lay down"...to...sleep...it gets bad!   Standing....I'm OK---but....90% of nites....last 5...weeks.....muscle myoclonus......back....body....trunk....arms..legs....going into my face!     Terrible panic attacks!     Last month...(early January)-flew from East Coast to Los Angeles...to...visit friends......& FIRST..nite...at hotel----myoclonus frightened me into FULL BLOWN panic attack!   I called.."Beverly Hills"...911---got medics within,....3 mins....!  Nothing they could do--!
 
I FLEW! back to East Coast..the next morning!   shakehead   Finally......after seeing 2 different neuros...(& getting "clean"....EEGs....EMGs.....etc)----I finally found a guy who understood--!   AND...his "nurse practioner"....was so...kind....& caring!  She was like an angel!yeah
Told me-------------
1) I am OK----myoclonus will NOT kill me!
2) For my "peace of mind"....is prescribing a cervical spine MRI....to rule out any "nerve impingment"--3)--Having me.....get a blood test----to check thyroid!
4) Presribed.....Lexapro....10 mg/day...AND....suggested
5) cognitive therapy--
 
Anyone here...HELPED by Lexapro?   Please..I'd like to hear some GOOD things about something i am starting tomorrow--!   He said.."lexapr"...aside....from....being...an SSRI anti-depressant,,,,has "anti-anxiety"...properties!  Said..it might take...3 to 4 weeks to kick in...!
 
I NEED SLEEP! smhair    I'd give anything...for a nice 7 hr sleep---!  Get back---Robert wink

Wotan,


I have read and heard of many people who have used or are currently using Lexapro with great success. I hope this is your experience with this new medication for you.



Take care,



Kitt
