Guest Julia59 Posted November 2, 2005 Report Share Posted November 2, 2005 Hi folks----tonight i'm a mess of sorts.I have noticed a lot of twitching on my face lately----forehead, eye's, chin, mouth--ect. I also noticed a strong twitching on my left upper arm. Twitching on my fingers----and a nerve twitching in my belly just below the rib cage.I have also been having a lot of adrenaline surges---and they can last hours. I have been fighting getting the Klonopin prescription filled as I just don't want to depend on it. My whole spine hurts---especially the upper spine where the neck meets with the thoracic spine at C7-T1. It feels like there is a fork sticking between those two vertebrae. Dr. Bolognese at The Chiari Institute said my sympathetic nervous system is irritated---but he did not elaborate on what could be causing it. He seems most concerned with the cervical/cranial instability/brain stem compression---and the other NSG Dr. Heffez is more concerned with the cerivcal spine stenosis. The NSG I saw at the Cleveland Clinic last week seems to think it's something else---systematic causing my symptoms, although he did not rule our my spinal issues altogether.Lately, when I eat, especially in the evening my belly blows up like I'm nine months pregnant. I am having a horrible time typing this because i'm so shakey---and my belly is up in my chest----a sharp pain running across my upper abdomin near the rib cage. This seems to be secondary to these adrenaline surges. Every time I get out of this chair i'm in right now my legs are shakey.Help! My body is not behaving!I go to the PCP tomorrow---I have been avoiding her, as I just don't want to deal with telling her about this mess. You know what I mean? Don't you all just get tired of explaining all this over and over again?----I'm so sick of all this...............I'm in the midst of an attack---so bear with me and my rambling---but I thought this would be a good opportunity to divert my thinking----but believe me it's hard as I keep burping so much it feels as if i'm trying to cough up my stomach----and of course my insides feel like they are shaking.I had a little homemade gravy on my baked potato tonight and a small piece of boneless pork chop. I get this way a lot after eating. I don't even want to think about my gall bladder going----last I heard it works 60%, and that was in 2000. Really----60% isn't bad. I have seen a lot of people on this board worse off then that.For some reason eating a meal--usually only in the evening---i'll get these spells---like food or the act of digesting is a trigger. In 2000 i was not even able to take a few bites off a cracker without triggering these events----it went away very slowly---but it never went away completely. Most of the time I can eat----but it's easier in the morning---and afternoon.This is getting so depressing........ Julie :0( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
