>> Are you currently taking any other drugs? I'm guessing you are BP?

We'll both have to speculate for now. But Im open to speculators (benign ones anyway:)

I was recently misdiognosed, two different docs.

One put me on ultram which is increasing my mania.

The next put me on Neurontin to help with insomnia and fibro pain. And zoloft for "depression".

I ended up with serotonin syndrome (hyper stimualation of the brain stem) and didnt sleep for three days. When the tremors started I checked the drug interaction myself and found it to be major. SSRI's and pain meds. dont mix.

I decided to try another pdoc this week. When I complained of the mental fog and utter morose feeling Im having with the Neurontin, I was told by last pdoc, that was just me (me in a depressed state). Its not me! Ive lived with my depression for 35 plus years. I KNOW what my depression feels like. I felt I was litlerally dragging my face around.

(maybe Im missing something here, but docs who dont listen, or at least pretend to listen, i give no quarter to)

MY depressions are filled angst one minute and numbness the next. The worse it gets the more detached I feel, until someone bumps my shell and I come out long enough to scream them into submission and then I retreat until the next bump. Bumps can be anything, (I liked the "you breathe, you die" scenario y'all:), people eating dinner, someone looking at me, someone walking by the same pair of shoes in the middle of my way, 50 times a day and not picking them up!!! NOT my shoes of course.

My highs dont last that long (my poor family) and are usually marked with irritabilty. I never sleep deeply. But when Im manic 4-5 hours does it. (Some nights I dont sleep at all)

When Im depresed 12 hrs. sleep is not enough.

I ranting.
Yea, I think Im BP.
Thanx for the good wishes, Miss Fluffy ;)
