Tourette Syndrome :: Toe Won't Stop And Repetitive Blinking Eye
Feb 12, 2016
All of this started a few months ago. I had a really bad phase with a lot of panic attacks and severe depression etc. Shortly after all of this calmed down i couldn't stop flexing my toes for about a month. I had this urge to just flex them, often bad enough to the point where my toes started cramping. It stopped from one day to the other and since then its my eyes. I can't stop squeezing them shut. The urge to do this is unbearable. It feels worse with the right eye. I just have this unbearable urge to squeeze them shut or to blink really hard. I try not to do this which evolves in repetitive blinking all day long. I can't stop. Well, I can, but it's driving me crazy. This awful urge in my eyes isn't going away and I feel like my eyes are burning when I stop. It's horrible. I had people comment on this. Mostly my parents. My mother asked me at least 10 times now what's up with my eyes and she seems really annoyed about it. I tried to explain it to her but she reacted really pissed off. I don't know why. I googled a bit and read a lot about Tourette's and I'm afraid that might be it? I don't know what I'm supposed to do? This goes on all day long and I can't handle it anymore. I don't even want to be around anyone anymore because it's not stopping. To have this urge and this feeling all day is killing me. Is there anything I can do? What happens when I tell a doctor about this? Is there anything they can do to stop this?

I have never really posted on any board before, so I don't know what to do or what to say. But. I am currently experiencing my 6th UTI and the pain is beginning to radiate to my back already; I believe I have a kidney infection. I just turned 18 years old during the holiday and I never really had a problem with UTIs until 8 months ago when I had my first kidney infection. It was the worst pain I had ever experienced. I had the UTI for a week prior and I was just using monistat since that had worked for me the one other time I had one, and when the pain reached my back I didn't tell my mom until three days after and I was taken to the hospital right then. Anyways, they gave me strong antibiotics and sent me on my way home after hours of IV tries and ultrasounds. The antibiotics worked wonderfully and I finished the bottle like instructed. After a few weeks I had another UTI, so I went to see my doctor and I was given more antibiotics. I didn't think anything of it and I just took my medicine as instructed.

My third and fourth UTI snuck up on me about three and a half weeks after my second and that was when I was kind of worried. I know something is not right, but I don't have an ob/gyn to consult with as I'm not sexually active (but I will be making an appointment with one and getting a referral for urologist). So I went to my doctor again and I was diagnosed with a kidney infection and sent off with more antibiotics and that single pill that clears up the uti (i don't remember the name). I thought that it had finally worked and I was going to be a-okay until Dec. 23rd when I got my fifth UTI. I went to the hospital, was given a shot (a steroid, maybe? All I know is that it burned) and it cleared up until the day after my birthday on the 28th. I haven't been able to get out to my doctor yet for antibiotics and I'm not a fan of hospitals so now I'm beginning to have flank pain all the way up to beneath my right shoulder blade.
This was rather lengthy but Is there anything that could be causing these recurrent UTIs and kidney infections that I should bring up to my doctor? Because whenever I go there, I pee in a cup and get sent home with antibiotics and "this will nip it in the bud!" but it's back within a month. I'm probably not wording myself right (it's 2AM) but I just want to know if anyone else has had this and what worked for them/their diagnosis?
I'm really in need of working my body. Now with osteoporosis diagnosis and so much muscle loss and Trochanteric Hip pain back, and other PMR pains still there when my Pred wears off...

I need to exercise, but I'm confused...
I know, low reps. I should repeat several times a day, but forget.
I'm about to start PT again for hip and will make sure this guy doesn't make me work out to failure like my last experience, ugh.
I have a video for Qi Gong, but I don't like it as he seems to stay with same motion for so long. But as I type this I realize I could just stop and focus on breathing exercises...ha, answered that question.
My butt muscles are so gone now I struggle to keep pants up.
I do squat exercises but am I doing enough? I feel fairly strong, but I weigh so little now perhaps it doesn't take much.
I lift weights for my biceps, they actually look pretty good for a woman, Hee, Hee.
I know we are all different, when I feel good I try to do a little and I mean little extra, but sometimes I'll have new pain. Yoga I can do pretty well, but do tend to push myself...is it too much? I don't know. It is a gentle yoga class, very slow, I like it,,good teacher.
Not sure what I'm asking y'all but maybe just need to hear what others are going through. Those who still feel pains, what kind of exercises are you doing? Yes, I'm back up to a whoppin' mile walking, but sure would like to do more.
Do you walk several times a day? I walk a lot around house but does that count? Yes, better than sitting I know.
I work for a Software company since last 15 years. I suffer from Computer RSI which makes it very painful to use mouse/keyboard, hold a pen and such things. Nothing has been revealed in my MRI or nerve conduction studies which is making it very challenging to convince people at work, who are not very aware of RSI.

Can you point out to any resources at Internet to show that RSI can be a severe problem even when nothing shows up in your investigations?
Has Computer RSI been formally accepted by medical science as a diseases?
Okay so, I'm 20. Um okay so, i keep having thoughts about my ex.. Me and him have been in a very toxic relationship for years since high school and I feel as though it was just so toxic that it didn't allow us to grow or to really be who we truly are.. But.. Yeah we weren't together anymore and all he wants now is just sex from me.. And I'm so attached I dream about him with other girls and I constantly think about the arguments we had things he has said things I have said just constantly playing back things and now I'm starting to talk to myself like I my head I'm starting to be nicer to myself and allowing those thoughts to just come and go and I am constantly forgiving myself and telling myself that I cannot control any of those situations and I tell myself that or worrying and overthinking will not resolve anything but just makes matters worse... And I have repetitive thoughts about anything that I feel so insecure about, I've started praying and asking God to help me.. Is there anything else I can do? I've also started meditating I don't do much like I just started getting back into school consistently everything that I do is inconstant. Everything so I'm starting to be better at things

I have Primary Sjogren's Syndrome but was born Hypermobile. It was only after my present Rheumatologist diagnosed that I have scoliosis that I started to research. I found the Beighton Scale and the Brighton criteria which I match completely. I explained my research to my consultant and she agrees. However while she and another consultant both agree I do have POTS so far I don't have an appointment to see anyone to help me. I have had ECGS and a bubble ECG but they have been taken while lying down. Now the POTS I really noticed post the birth of my last son 29 years ago is getting much worse, can anyone advise me as it has taken decades to get this far, I don't feel time is on my side

Having been officially diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome about a year ago, I think back on ALL the diagnoses I have had related to it: "nutcracker esophagus and severe GERD", "esophageal spasms", polyarthritis, fibrotic lymph nodes, fibromyalgia, Prinzmetal angina, benign parotid tumor excision (trabecular adenoma), dry skin, dry mucous membranes, etc. and now know they are all part of the same syndrome, which has been steadily worsening and becoming more malignant (and I am only sixty). There are many other more serious difficulties, but now I'm wondering if I, too, will get non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, since that is what some people progress into. It is NOT that this frightens me at all--but now there is something of which to be aware (and I'm not certain my M.D. knows of this). I also have glaucoma and cataracts--so I really have to protect my eyes (and I have had a vitreous bleed into one of them).

My ophthalmologist (a retinologist) placed upper and lower tear duct plugs in my eyes--which has helped, but I still have to use lubrication. Since I am a writer and use the computer extensively, I find it quite hard on the dry eyes. I am extremely careful to drink lots of water and often mix pure fruit juice with my water to avoid calories (sugar) and to make the water more interesting. This does, however, exacerbate my stress incontinence gained after fracturing my back--for which I stay close to a toilet (but my writing is done at home.)

I always get the feeling I can't breath properly...I can but I get that feeling and it's getting worse as I get bigger....when in Labour with my first daughter I freaked out and couldn't breath 3 times. They called it a panic attack...? I'm starting to get really worried it will happen with this birth,but worse! And it's already happening . I calm down and take deep breaths but it is extremely scary!

I'm so fed up! I don't see how my life can go from so good, to this complete isolation within a couple of weeks. I'm constantly anxious about my future, and what lies ahead for me. I feel so insecure, and feel like i'm living my life day by day, to survive. Citalopram is just making me tired at strange times of the day, i have NO motivation to do anything at all. I tried to see friends yesterday, but didn't enjoy it at all, i just wanted to be at home, this is not me? I feel like i've got someone else's personality.

I started on 30mg but the side effects are horrendous for me - it started with just a few aches, that gradually got worse by the day until every muscle in my body hurt (even my fingers and toes) and had put on almost a stone in weight. After 3wks on 30mg I had a follow up appointment with the Doctor, after mentioning all the problems I was having, he decreased my dose to 15mg and said a reduced dose would help with the side effects - it did for a few days, but the past week all of the above side effects have returned and are again getting worse each day.
I am going to stop taking them. Yes - I do feel I need something for my low moods - but my Doctor was reluctant to change the medication and the side effects are making me feel terrible physically.
So without the lectures of 'go back to your dr' etc etc, I am after some advice on how to stop taking this medication? Do I just stop? Do I lower my dose again, or take the dose every other day and over how long a time period?
i am 19 year old boy. i am masturbating since i was 10 from past 9 years , i am so addicted that i masturbatethrice a day. i want to stop it completely. i have tried to stop it but i can't stop it for a month.

I know I've posted quite a lot recently but, everything is just so hard at the moment. The only thought that calms me is the thought that I could end it all. Every problem would wash away and it can't be any worse than the misery that is life. I'm sorry to keep posting and going on. I really hope you are all doing well.

I have an infection in one of my bottom molars, the pain started on sunday it is now friday and all throughout the 5 days I have been in SO MUCH pain I can't even explain how bad the pain is, I can't sleep it wakes me early hours of the morning, I can't concentrate at school I don't know what to do anymore I take ibuprofen they do not work i've also tried paracetamol and ibuprofen together still doesnt work im just sooo tired and in so much pain all the time and can't take it anymore I've cried all day everyday for the five days. I have had a tooth infection in one of my molars before which was right next to the one I have it in now my dentist took it out but the pain I had with that tooth infection was NOTHING compared to the pain I am in right now I seriously can't cope anymore. The thing that really gets me is I have been to my dentist so many times about the pain, he started a root canal the first day I saw him then I came back the next with the severe pain he carried on with the root canal still no ease with pain it didn't even calm down?! He then prescribed me with antibiotics halfway through the root canal which I don't think is right? I could be wrong? I have another appointment on Tuesday but its only friday and I really really really can't take/deal with this pain until then its making me want to shoot myself in the face-.- also should I just ask my dentist to take the tooth out? Please if ANYONE has ANY KIND of advice on how to STOP the pain I would be so so so grateful thankyou.
