Blush I have no idea whats wrong. Scared for life.

I have been on Ambien for about 2 months and been taking about 2 1/2 to TRY and get some where but ..does nothing. I havent got ANY sleep for 4 months..I cry every night and feel myself going crazy.. literally.. I've lost so many things from this.. I feel so much pain in my body.. my ears..my left eye.. I get cold really fast. I have nerve damage. I twitch and can feel when I run my hands through my hair its falling out.. I hear cracks in my brain neck.. & have no insurance. Im so discouraged and really just contemplating suicide.. this is killing me. I lost my job because of it.. & have so many things to pay off.

I ALWAYS feel my left side of my face go numb.. and I dont know why.. im also breaking out really bad on that side and on my chest.
I have alot of health issues because of this. Plaque build up.. cant really feel any emotions.. cant remember anything.. I cant analyze anything... I dont know whats wrong with me. I need some sort of answer.. anything.

Please help,
today I went to buy a bottle of melotonin because Ive run out of ambien..so im going to see if this works.

thanks,
Priscilla

Hey friends, I am new to this board. I have been going through PCS for almost a year now (March 3 will be the anniversary of the day I hit my head). I am a preacher so this has really shaken me and has utterly brought me to the depths of despair. It started a week after I hit my head. I would describe it as hell on Earth. I had extreme anxiety, depression, migrane headaches, OCD, confusion, no good feelings, and horrible thoughts. I had the words of Jeremiah the prophet,"Cursed is the day that I was born" in my heart. It got so bad that this past month I almost died. The doctor told me on February 1, 2012 that my body entered flight or fight mode, 24/7, even when I slept. He said that I had to literally reverse the chemicals in my brain, regenerate dead brain cells and neurotransmitters. However, he did say that I was going to live and talk about this one day. They wanted to put me on prozac, but, I did research on it and decided not to. I was at my wits end and last hope. I decided to do my healing the natural way. I stopped eating fast food, processed food and red meat. I started eating everything organic and researched brain super foods that brought healing to the brain. Within three days, I saw a significant difference. Then I added all natural raw milk to my diet. I read that raw milk is actually nature's perfect food and regenerates brain cells. You just have to find a farm that has a license to sell it. Just a few days after that I had everything get better. I also added working out to my regime. The brain needs blood flow to heal so working out helps alot. I also only drink Alkaline water. I am taking Beyond Omega-3 Better brain Vitamins from Garden of Life, B-complex and St. John's wort. I also take RAW Meal Supplement by Garden of Life. I am now on day 28 of actually doing something to get better and now everything is getting better. I am dealing with the OCD part of this still, although it has slowed down tremendously. I know that I am going to get fully healed in the next month. God is faithful. I thank Him for showing me the way to get healed.

Your diet has a huge role in your healing. Many of the processed foods have chemicals in them that alter and damage brain function. Stay away from things with MSG and high-fructose corn syrup. Really, anything artificial well not do well for your brain. Anyone who has an ear let them hear.

I am not a doctor. Just one who seeks the truth in everything and a fellow sufferer of the horrible post-concussion syndrome. May Christ be with you in the time of sufferings

Default Hello pricilla

It is hard. Much of life is. Don't give up either. Many of us on this site go through many difficult situations. You can find some support here. I had no insurance either. It took alot of time to get disability. I did find alot of help right here with all the problems I face. Keep in touch. There are womens centers located in most towns. These places can direct you to some physicians that can see you on a sliding scale. If you do not having much, they don't ask for much. I did this first to get medical help. I received several surgeries while I was waiting for a hearing with the SS people. There is help both mentally and physically if you will just reach out for it. I hope alot of others will respond to you, and give you more ideas. I will be here to listen. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. ginnie

Default Plp4eva and not knowing

I believe that our greatest fear is accompanied by our greatest doubt. Do you have any support where you are? Family, clergy or friends you can reach out to? You sound like you are in crisis and are desperatly seeking support.

My greatest fear is when I am helpless. In those moments, someone comes to rescue me. For me this is truley my hardest struggle. All my life I have helped my family, friends and others. I was always the rescuerer it is difficult for me to even see someone is there to help me.

Know that my heart goes out to you whereever you are. Please do not despair. you are stronger than you know.

Default Hello PLP

Fear is awful. It makes us get stuck in our tracks. Reach out for support in your community and to us here. You are not alone. I too have had times where I can't sleep. depression, lack of a good body, all kinds of stuff. So I push myself, washing the floor on my butt if I can't walk or stand. I hate what is happening to my body too. take ambien, doesn't do much for me either, so I work at whatever I can until I drop from being tired. Today I am going to sit in the garage, on my butt, and wash and paint the floor. I have to sell my home, and don't have a clue where I will go. I won't let fear, and this raggity body of mine stop me from some kind of life. I am here for you. So is NT. Write to me and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can. I am burning the candle in my own life. Call clergy, even the emergency number, to get help if you need it. Keep writing to us. You have friends right here. ginnie

Default You have a friend who cares

Sweetie, I have a lot of these same problems. You need to get to a neurologist. Can you get Medicaid? I have actually been able to get help from my bishop. The church is paying for me to get a neuropsychiatric evaluation so I can get disability. Please hang in there. Look on the internet for phone numbers of Medicaid. Go to the emergency room if all else fails. They have to see you even without insurance. Sounds like you have chronic pain and a sleep disorder. Have you hit your head at all? I am here if you need to talk. I care if your ok. Love to you.
