A hangover is, in part, due to an acute withdrawal from the previous night’s alcohol consumption. Hangovers may happen with the consumption of just one alcoholic beverage.

Pediatric and adolescent angst…

https://nyti.ms/3e9luKJ Ci, the gender non-binary person from Utah, described the physical symptoms of panic attacks (not the physical symptoms of depression, as Ci had stated) starting in the 3rd grade. Both diagnoses can give debilitating symptomatology. Both diagnoses often cohabitate the same sufferer. The misinterpretation of symptoms (by a patient/client) and the misdiagnosis by aContinue reading “Pediatric and adolescent angst…”

I ASK PATIENTS TO NOT SUDDENLY STOP SUBSTANCES SUCH AS ALCOHOL, BENZODIAZEPINES (Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Tranxene, etc.), OR SEDATIVE-HYPNOTIC DRUGS (these are sleep aids, which are typically long-acting benzodiazepines such as Ambien, Lunesta, Restoril, Dalmane, Halcion, etc.) WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL HELP. SUDDEN CESSATION OF THESE PRODUCTS MAY LEAD TO SEIZURES AND DEATH.

Often, unintentionally, or due to fragmentation of care, or due to improper documentation/lack of review of documentation, or due to concealment by the patient, some patients are also using alcohol while taking a benzodiazepine along with a sleep aid. The combination of 2 or 3 categories of products are especially dangerous (excessive sedation, confusion/delirium, falls,Continue reading “I ASK PATIENTS TO NOT SUDDENLY STOP SUBSTANCES SUCH AS ALCOHOL, BENZODIAZEPINES (Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Tranxene, etc.), OR SEDATIVE-HYPNOTIC DRUGS (these are sleep aids, which are typically long-acting benzodiazepines such as Ambien, Lunesta, Restoril, Dalmane, Halcion, etc.) WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL HELP.

ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC ARE LIKE FLESH EATING BACTERIA. ALL OF THESE SEVERE PROBLEMS TAKE MORE AND MORE OF OUR LIVES IF WE IGNORE THE SYMPTOMS AND DO NOTHING. WITH FLESH EATING BACTERIA, WE CAN SEE THE INFECTION INVADING THE BODY AND THE REDNESS, PAIN, AND SWELLING EXPANDING BY THE HOUR. ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC EXPAND BEYOND THEIR INITIAL TERRITORY TOO. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO PUT UP A WALL TO PREVENT ANXIETY AND PANIC FROM PROGRESSING. WE ACTUALLY NEED HELP, WITH THE USE OF MEDICATIONS, TALK THERAPY, MEDITATION, AND PHYSICAL TECHNIQUES IN ORDER TO PUT INTO REMISSION, AND EVEN CURE, ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC.

Often, anxiety, fear, and panic manifest as physical symptoms. These symptoms lead patients and the patients’ families and friends on months to years of emergency room visits, repeat visits to primary care physicians and specialists, blood testing and imaging, all the while missing the actual problems (and root causes) of fear, anxiety and panic. InContinue reading “ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC ARE LIKE FLESH EATING BACTERIA. ALL OF THESE SEVERE PROBLEMS TAKE MORE AND MORE OF OUR LIVES IF WE IGNORE THE SYMPTOMS AND DO NOTHING.

CLEAN OUT your head (sleep, exercise, screen time, sleep apnea, alcohol, drugs, poor nutrition, mood and anxiety), in order to CLEAR UP how you think.
