Can Caffeine Cause Seizures
If Caffeine Strobe lights and heat triggered my seizures in the past. Can Caffeine with it being a trigger to my migraines cause seizures to return?
Yes: But hope not, not sure though, anything that triggered seizure in past may do it again. ...Read more
No.: Caffeine use definitely does not cause either seizures or bd, nor is there a link between seizures and bd. Although a number of anticonvulsants turn out to be effective treatments for bd too, that does not mean that bd is a seizure disorder. Often, classes of medications work for a variety of unrelated disorders. ...Read more
I have Epilepsy, I would like to take Maca, Concerns? 12 years seizure free. I handle stimulants well like caffeine, guarana.
Depends: Maca is not a stimulant and there have not been any information about it lowering the seizure threshold. It has an affect on the hypothalamic system and hormonal balance (thus some use it for menopausal symptoms). If you have no endocrine problems (ex: low thyroid) it is probably safe for you and may even help with seizure control due to better sleep quality. ...Read more
Intermittent tachycardia with blood pressure changes every few hours, looking like but is not hypoglycemia, needing diagnosis and treatment.....?
More information would help clarify how to solve the problem:
The combination of recurrent tachycardia, "unstable" blood sugar and blood pressure, "all the symptoms of diabetes" but normal HgbA1c, "reactive hypoglycemia" and symptoms occurring every three hours, and atypical sleep apnea.
The differential diagnosis would include:
*Insulinoma (insulin secreting tumor) producing recurant hypoglycemia with tachycardia)
*Pheochrocytoma (adrenaline secreting tumor often of the adrenal glands)
*polyendocrine syndome encompassing either or both with possible hypophysitis with ovarian hypofunction or autoimmune oopheritis.
You may have been screened for insulinoma but remember that common screening test use monoclonal antibodies which will not pick up proinsulin.
To assist in diagnosis - providing more detail to the phrases in paragraph 1 including labs and then consultation with an endocrinologist would be an appropriate next step. ...Read more
Help! My Dr has had me on 6-8 Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily for 1year for daily migraines, but now his office won't ok refill & I'm out. I have clonazepam, will that prevent seizure?
Inefficient choice: .. but you need to ask your doctor exactly what he/she intends for you to do. If you have pre-existing risks of seizure, then you should have been on seizure preventing medications, of which clonazepam is not one. I would advice against taking clonazepam for the pure reason of preventing seizures. ...Read more

Hmmm...: What do you mean by anxiety? In my way of thinking, caffeine (espcially in normal amounts) as a drug does not have the pharmacological property of causing ANXIETY. However, EXCESS caffeine usage in an individual can, by a different number of ways (i.e. too much as in Energy drinks, withdrawal as in cutting back or sudden cold turkey) cause jitteriness, nervoussness, shakiness, etc. ...Read more
All stimulants: Work like adrenaline, and increase the body's metabolic rate, so we burn more fuel to ensure that we can meet the "fight or flight" response. So we burn sugar more rapidly, and the low blood sugar actually further increases adrenaline and related chemicals (like dopamine) leading to a vicious cycle. ...Read more

Does caffeine cause headaches in some cases? I've been getting regular headaches that I think may be in response to drinking coffee. Thank you!
Possible: The most common headache related to caffeine is a "withdrawal headache" which occurs in frequent drinkers of caffeinated beverages when they stop drinking. The body builds up almost a dependence on caffeine. Some patients may actually experience headaches that are caused by caffeine. ...Read more
What does a healthy tongue look like? I don't smoke and barely have caffeine. Is it normal to have a thing film on your tongue and what causes it?
May not be a problem:
Western medicine does not pay much attention to tongues unless they have dramatic imbalances. Chinese medicine pays great attention to the tongue, using it to diagnose the state of the GI tract. According to http://www. Sacredlotus. Com/diagnosis/tongue/
a thin white coating is normal, though it can be a sign of "external cold"if you have those symptoms.
Bottom line- probably nothing to worry about. ...Read more
