Have neurological symptoms with no neurological cause. Seen 3 neuro docs. All say anxiety. Can anxiety pass off really bad physical symptoms?
Anxiety can be cause: However, the anxiety is based on repression and dissociative defenses creating what is called a conversion disorder or reaction. Find yourself a trauma based therapist who deals with dissociation. If they cannot treat you with appropriate hypnotic techniques then find a hospital-based psychiatrist who can do a sodium amytal interview to find out what has been repressed. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

If you were exposed through a bite from an animal that could have rabies, i.e. a bat or stray, uncaptured dog, you should have received rabies prophylaxis. If you did not, then you need to contact your physician right away. Most prople infected with rabies develop symptoms very quickly but it take up to a year. Have you discussed tgis with your doctor, had the animal tested, had DFA.

Required by nerves: This co-factor is needed by the nerves to stay healthy. Each nerve cell has a self repair system that relies on a variety of nutrients in our diet to provide the needed material to keep the walls intact and the cell working. Lack of B12 eventually causes that repair system to start breaking down and nerve cells malfunction or degenerate, leading to neurologic symptoms. ...Read more

What causes severe migraines with neurological symptoms? I have been suffering from these migraines for 10 years now. I went to a neurologist when they first started, and he attributed them to small vessels in my head. Problem is, now I am in collegel
I am sorry to hear of your migraines. Migraine is a neurobiological disorder of the trigeminovascular system (vascular system of the extra and intracranial vessels that interacts with the trigeminal nerve (cranial nerve v). There is a genetic component to this disorder and environmental triggers are not uncommon (i.e. Menses, food, emotional state...).
During an aura there is vasospasticity from the release of chemical mediators of inflammation which cause a spreading depression of reduced blood flow usually starting in the occipital lobes (visual center) and migrating anteriorly. Hence, the visual disturbance and other complex neurologic symptoms that you refer to in your description of your symptoms.
Any medications that can increase viscosity and "slow flow" can potentially create persistent neurologic symptoms (i.e. Tia or stroke). Thus the reason for avoiding birth control pills. Cigarette smoking and antiphospholipid antibodies may also increase your risk for stroke so I counsel my patients on the risks involved with cigarette smoking and complicated migraine. I also screen for the antiphospholipid antibodies. If positive then I refer that patient to a hematologist for further discussions on the need for anticoagulation and how should pregnancy be handled.
I hope this information helps. ...Read more
