Can black mold cause migraine, nervousness, anxiety and if exposed for 10 to 12 years before discovering mold long term effects?

Uncertain: The cdc advises that this type of mold typically causes more respiratory symptoms in susceptible patients, including nasal congestion, eye irritation, wheezing, and some skin irritation. Some people exposed to large amounts of the mold, like farmers, may have severe reactions including fever and shortness of breath. It does not advise on possible reactions of long term exposures. Talk to your doc. ...Read more

I was recently put on 15mg Temazepan to help with insomnia & anxiety.Took as 1.5 hrs ago.Still in bed and awake w/ a migraine brewing. Is it normal?

Temazepam & awake: It's important to discuss all of your symptoms & concerns with your prescribing doc. It sounds like you suffer from migraines, so perhaps absent of the migraine, the temazepam would have been effective. Or perhaps you need your regimen adjusted. The best way to find out is to ring your doctor and schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns! :) ...Read more

What is the safest/mildest route to go with antidepressants? what is the difference between different antidepressants? need one for anxiety/migraine

What is the safest/mildest route to go with antidepressants? what is the difference between different antidepressants? need one for anxiety/migraine

Safest is therapy: Prescription strategies IMHO are not the best choice for mild depression or anxiety. CBT therapy is - and the therapist can help you decide if any Rx is needed for a brief time. Meditation, exercise, relaxation skills, accupuncture/pressure and corrections of any out-of-balance life-style choices are my suggestions for a 1st trial. No Rx's are mild - even low doses can have side EFX. Best wishes. ...Read more

 Migraine Aura checked BP165/81 (112 bpm)checked again 15ms167/80 went to hospital 155/80 10mins later
140/78 Dr suggested Anxiety over High reading?

You agree: Hope you know this: It's often not either/or but rather both - and more! Even your low BP is a tad high - worthy of attention - not necessarily Rx. Ccoming down quickly is good, but don't be complaisant. Your other cardiac issues say live a 5-star healthy style! Get a good diet/exercise plan - avoid salt, soda,smoking and excess stress - moderate alcohol. CBT therapy/Meditation/Yoga can all help ...Read more
