Questions???

Posted by
Joy on March 27, 2001 at 15:57:21:

I have a few questions and I was curious as to whether anyone out there would have any insight. First of all, I will give you my background and fill you in on what is going on now. About 5 years ago I began to have these "spells" in which I become very nauseated, dizzy, pale, have sweaty palms as well as an increased pulse rate. About 5 minutes later my right leg begins to shake uncontrollably and shortly after my right arm does the same. This generally lasts about 20 minutes or so. I went to the doctor last year and many tests were ran. A CATscan, MRI, a Brain Wave test and even a Lumbar Puncture because the MRI revealed a spot on my brain. So, my doctor suspected I may have Multiple Sclerosis. However, the LP came back OK. So, the doctor came to the conclusion that I have what is known as Dystonia. He says I could take medication, but I opted not to because these spells only occur about once every month or two. He said the medication wasn't necessary and it was totally up to me. Now, to my current question. For the past 5 days I have been very dizzy, about every 10 minutes or so I become very dizzy. I thought maybe it would go away but it hasn't. I am not sure if this would be related to the spells I described earlier or if maybe it could be a result of an eye problem or inner ear problem. I don't know if I should be concerned or what. If anyone has any advice it would be very appreciated.

Lord! Jo. This is so simple.

One must be ready to think in patterns rather than the linear thinking the conventional medical monopoly is addicted to to under stand this.

This is a direct effect of stress-effect storage in the hypothalamus and your autonomic nervous system is genetically suscpetible to it's being the first system to go.

If this sounds like gobble-de-gook to you, you simply need a lot more information.

Start with the archives (and home page) about stress and dysautonomia and SR.

See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

When you have that under your belt let us know what you have learned and post any more questions. In your reading you will see references to Dr Pelletier's book and about Dr Selye's book--as well as Dr Benson's book. I would read them in that order and stop when you think you have the concept grasped.

If you choose not to learn this stuff, this is as good as it gets.

Walt

Sorry Joy. I meant Joy, not Jo (typo).

Thanks Dr. Stoll, I am so appreciative that you are willing to help me understand what is going on. I have searched for Dr. Pelletier's book that you suggested, "Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer," in bookstores here in my hometown and have had no luck. I was wondering if you had any suggestions as to how I could get my hands on one. I would like to read up on this condition some more to further see if I exhibit the symptoms it produces. Again, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks....Joy

Hi, Joy.

Any library can find you a copy with their lending network. OR, you can try the internet at www.bibliofind.com bookfinder or bookavenue.

Let us know how you do.

Walt
