So to start off this topic i should let you know a couple things. One my body had gotten very used to carbamazepine and i take 800mgs a day, and I’ve been having repeated tn1 and tn2 attacks daily. Two i seem to be getting these weird symptoms there’s alot of them and every single one of them seems to be connected to carbamazepine toxicity. I’ll get back to that.
Three symptoms im getting all of them are coming on very slowly, I’d say over the past seven months. I’ve not had blood levels done in a year, and every time i go to the neurologist office she shrugs everything off, my fourth point. Five, even though i seem to be getting worse and worse and I’ll get to the symptoms, she still shrugs it off. She did order a brain ct and might do a lumbar punctar but that helps in no way to see if my levels are off!.
So finally i will list my symptoms, i looked a lot up and these are the ones specifically connected to carbamazepine levels being too high. These are also the symptoms I’ve had for quite a while.
- Urinary retention 2.Vision problems 3.Tremors 4.Trouble walking at times 5.Bowel problems 6.Aplatic anemia 7.Nausea. 8.No appetite. 9.comfusion at times. 10.Dizziness 11.Dry mouth. 12.Trouble thinking and concentrating 13.Stomach pain 14.Vomiting. 15…Peeing less. 16.Extreme fatigue 17.Fast heart rate 18.Drowziness
So i know that seems like a lot that wouldn’t fit together but strangely enough all those symptoms are symptoms are carbamazepine side effects. However I’ve been talking this messed for four years now and never had a problem till now. Any thoughts as to why or anyone have the same symptoms? I feel keying going insane here!
