Daphnis (spelling?)
Don't feel bad, I went HUH? when I first started reading posts. Pdoc is your psychiatrist.

BAM stands for Basilar Artery Migrane which is not related to this thread or effexor. For the last 7-9 years I happen to have severe attacks where I get dble vision, slurred speach, make no sense, short term memory loss and then I sleep or pass out. No neurologist has ever had an answer for my attacks, so have been misdiagnosed and given seizure meds and epileptic meds. BAD, bad. After many tests, my tests come out negative for seizures yet I've been given meds for seizures - go figure. I don't take those meds anymore.

I'm treated for anx, ptsd (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) & depression which I DO have.

Through the help of people on this site, I discovered that I may have this BAM, but have to confirm with a new neurologist. Hope this doesnt' confuse you and keep on asking if you don't understand something. You show more courage than I have. I've seen things that I don't quite understand but don't ask. See, you've already helped me, I'll ask next time I don't understand something.
