Hello there,

That sounds really scary for you. I was on lamotrigine a while back but did not find it much help except i felt very numb about things.

Have you had any kind of MRI scan at all? Can you tell us what happened to you that started all this off?

Best wishes

Hi my name is Liz and I suffered a TBI stroke and bleed on the brain 6th December 2014

I had the same as you with the itching on my head it did feel as I had nits in my head and it was so uncomfortable. I also have a tremor which has been made worse by the accident. But in time the itching has subsided so you must give yourself time to heal and rest. Sleep and try to avoid stress as it can trigger so many more symptoms. Please tell us more about yourself. Take Care Liz

Hi there again.

I'm really ao sorry about what's happened . i can't begin to think how much that must have brought you down.

Messing people about with antidepressants and changing them quickly can really make you unwell. There should be a really slow tapering on and off but some of these docs seem to have no idea about stuff.

I must say my own experience of GPs has been really bad except for one.

I wish I could make things better but best we can do is listen and support each other.

This place has been great to look in on and the people here are very supportive so I hope that you call in on us all whenever things feel tough .

love and best wishes

Dear Really,

You have faced so much hardship and suffering. I hope that writing to us has felt like you put a little bit of that down for a while.

Your suffering, like that of others on this site, does not feel 'just". Nobody deserves that kind of discomfort and stress.

I urge you to continue to seek out ideas for managing both your symptoms and your doctors. Note what seems to help and what does not. Keep slowly experimenting, consistently doing even little bits of what helps and you may well see the some bigger results start to emerge.

Meditation and other related "whole system" adjustment approaches can both put you on a stronger overall footing to benefit from your medications and minimize the things that trigger the burning or other symptoms.

It sounds like your work is physically demanding, so exercise may not appeal on top of that, but stretching and aerobic exercise have different and complementary physical and mental benefits that can make a real difference in situations like yours. My husband feels much better now that he has his nutrition and exercise routine. He does not always stay on his exercise schedule, but that is not important, what is good is that he goes back to it.

We are thinking about you and and will keep you in our prayers. You are clearly an amazing person who perseveres, or you would not even have written here. Keep acting in that spirit. Better times are ahead.

Wishing you all the best,



Hi taia. R u so kind .lovely word's. Being alone 4 9yrs crying bout my kids .was the hardst no one to tell..thank u and hope u filling and family OK xxx
