Taking too much buproprion can cause seizures as well. That's the reason. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Fixation : Periodically, when perseverating about an illness or condition, one could coincidentally get it, I suppose, however it's not quite so simple as cause and effect? Perhaps a more useful clinical question here would be why be fixated on an illness? What are you getting out of such fixation? A reputable psychotherapist could help you answer these questions. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I think I have bipolar disorder. How do I know for certain if I have it or not? I have taken those quizzes online, which sometimes can be unreliable, but both of them said I am bipolar, i just want to make sure.
Hello. : Hello. Those tests can be suggestive of bipolar disorder. But because there are many other things that can have some of the same symptoms, the tests should not be used to make a diagnosis. I recommend that you see either a psychiatrist or a psychologist for a comprehensive evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dont understand ?: I don't know what you mean by seizures. Convulsions cause unconsciousness and do not "hurt, " although afterwards you may feel sore muscles, and if you fall and hurt yourself you will feel whatever that may be.

If u suffer with health anxiety can u imagine pain that u don't really have i keep getting pain and when i forget about it it goes?
Yes: My research definitely supports your experience and it is not just imaginary - it's self-hypnosis in a manner. Your 'expectation' of pain actually creates a change in your body. The good thing is that it works in reverse too. Expectations of relief are a major part of most treatments successes - they are the placebo effect. Some health psychologists can teach you how to get that benefit and relax. ...Read more
