P.S. -- About 4 months ago I developed a sour taste in my mouth while not on any meds, which I continue to cautiously consider.... My regular doc. said it could be mouth breathing &/or relux and put me on Cimetedine when I finally went to vist. Hard to say whether it helped or if that is the source. Anyone else have experience with this sort of thing?

Reflux from what I understand is backwash of stomach acid through the esophagus (sp?) valve which if it is the case would relate to my occasional INTENSE gag responses (as if someone has a hand about my throat) when feeling REALLY tense and stressed. If I start the day on an empty stomach and drink tea or swallow pills or something that disagree with me that can kick this response into a quick emptying of my stomach contents (which is minimal at that time) into the loo.

So there is an intense physical aspect to the stress reaction for me which involves the TMJ cicuitry -- ie. mouth, neck, shoulders...when the tension really kicks in for me. I find it hard to circumvent this response despite having used various relaxation response techniques at various times. Anyone have any experience dealing successfully with this type of thing -- preferably with no meds. ? Would this be cortisol related and hence perhaps respond to dopamine forumulations???

And would dopamine also effect long term as well as short term memory. When I am functioning well my memory excels at making connections and when not I'm lucky to recall my name by times never mind making any type of connection, creative, social or otherwise...

Any folks relate to any of this and have any insights into successful ways of dealing with any such dysfunctions???
