Thank you Phillipa for the reply...
Tardive pain falls under the same umbrella as TD
'Oral and genital tardive pain syndromes.
Ford B, Greene P, Fahn S.
Neurological Institute, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, New York, NY.
We report the development of chronic painful oral or genital sensations in 11 patients with tardive akathisia, tardive dyskinesias, or tardive dystonia. In each case, the pain syndrome became a source of profound distress for the patient, overshadowing all other concurrent neuropsychiatric symptoms, and requiring treatment. Agents effective in treating tardive dyskinesia and tardive akathisia, such as catecholamine depletors, proved effective in reducing the painful sensations. Our observations support the concept of tardive pain as a complication of chronic neuroleptic exposure.'
In the main text which I bought the authors postulate that it is a separate syndrome that can occur in the absence of any motor symptoms yet it means that the same abnormalities have been produced in the brain that can lead to full TD
Yes, he knows I'm really suicidal but I live with my parents and I am practically on suicide watch. I've had a second opinion. problem is no one can say this is not tardive pain syndrome because there is absolutely no other explanation for Geodon related genital pain....
