Don't Rx a lab value: The only question is whether you have reactive arthritis / ankylosing spondylitis or not. If you do, your physician is the one to make recommendations -- there's some biotech options that are very helpful. If you're not symptomatic, and this was found on a fishing expedition, it will probably never affect your life and there's nothing to do in any case. Best wishes. ...Read more

How do I stop the constant preoccupation of actions, worrying about what others think, awkward eye/body movements and speech that makes me arrogant?

Psych eval: Your concerns and symptoms may best be explained through a good psychological evaluation - interviews and perhaps testing. If it results in a diagnosis, treatment may be recommended. It may be a mistake to jump to any flip guess diagnosis. A good understanding will optimize your results. Try not to give up and be as patient as you can. You're young and it will be worth the effort - you deserve it! ...Read more

Who diagnosed the: movements as "involuntary" and "caused by anxiety"? Clonazepam works for many types of organic involuntary movements as well as anxiety. Why did this person taper you off of it? I wouldn't trust a psychiatric nurse practitioner to guess my weight, much less have any competence to diagnose an organic vs psychogenic movement disorder. See a neurologist. ...Read more

My mother has fdiffuse Cerebral Edema Because of Cardiac arrest. She is Having Little Body Movements, Little Eye Opening but No concious yet.

My mother has fdiffuse Cerebral Edema Because of Cardiac arrest. She is Having Little Body Movements, Little Eye Opening but No concious yet.

Tough problem: The edema is from leakage from vessels and cells which were deprived of oxygen and blood supply while the heart was stopped. This prevents them from working. Depending upon the length of time the brain was deprived as well as the resistance of the cells, as the edema clears there will be some recovery. There is no simple way to predict the timing; hopefully there will be much to gain.l ...Read more
