Well its kind of a long story. Anything from UTI to toe infections.
Last year I was on medication for a UTI. While on this medicine I had manic behavior and hullucinations. I was put in a behavior hospital for ten days. I am not sure if the hullucinations was caused by the meds or the infection. I think I might have another UTI and am afraid that I might be experiancing hullucinations again. While I am not really seeing things clearly, I am seeing things out of the corner of my eye. I have been losing sleep because of this for the past month. I don't know what to do.
Well I had an ingrown toe nail, so I got surgery done on Saturday. I am on pain killers, but thats it. I don't really want to tell my mom about the UTI, because no matter what we do they just come back and she nags me about it.
I don't drink or do drugs. The meds that I was on are Macrobid and Bactrium. My mom thinks that I am allergic to Sulfa drugs. I am really tired of going to the doctor for my UTI. They only provide a temporary fix that lasts 2 months at the most. It isn't that serious yet and I am not 100 percent sure that I even have one.
How long can we talk about this before my time runs out? Does it run out. This is my first time using this site, so I am clueless.
Well the doctors that it was an adverse reaction, but now that I am experiancing hullucinations again without medication I am not sure. I can't even sleep tonight because of them. They range from full body shadow figures to small white blurs. I don't really get a good look at them because they disapear once my eyes focus on them. Other times I don't see anything, but their presence is so strong that I am terrified. Oh and I never plan on taking those meds again. They ruined my whole junior year. It took me months to fully recover.
Its 3:30 am my time, so I am really tired. This was kind of my last step, before I give up in trying to figure this out.
Oh man! I was just at the ER very early sunday morning! I really don't want to go back. I have never even told my parents that this was going on. During the whole problem last time I had my blood checked, a EEG or whatever the brain wave scan was called, a CAT scan, and nothing showed any problems with my brain. I did have some issues with my thyroid, but my doctor thought it was because of the meds. Could that be the problem?
I didn't take any. The problem went away. I guess my numbers were really low or something. I don't remember which ones, but if you said it I might recognize it.
I have been on this site for more than an hour. I don't feel like I uncovered anything new or helpful. I know that you have just been introduced to my case, but many doctors have looked over my allergic reaction last year. My primary doctor couldn't even solve it. Of course she didn't realize how bad it really was. I just don't know how much more time I should put in this site.
Well...I don't want to explain it all over again. I don't want people to think that I am crazy. I just thought that I should tell someone and its easy for me to talk online about it. I guess I just want to know whats going on.
I am not willingly paying for your comments. Sorry, I just didn't find them that helpful.
I tried going to sleep like you said. As soon as I was about to fall asleep I heard something walking in my room. I don't know if this was just my house making weird noises or what, but it freaked me out. I have never heard anything like it.

Yes, you need to see the doctor.
Both infections (of any type) and medications (of any type) can cause hallucinations and neurological problems.
You need to get your infection evaluated before it becomes a huge problems again.
Go to your primary doctor urgent care or the ER.
I am sorry if I seem impatient, but I have been up all night because of this problem.
I havn't even told my parents yet. But I have been having these problems for a month, I just want to make sure that there is a real problem. If you read the whole conversation you know that I have had problems with this before. We never really got it worked out, it just went away on its own.
Could it be my thyroid? I had really low numbers with it before, I don't remember what they were called. How do I tell my mom that I have to go back to the doctor's office? I have been to the doctors 3 times, this month, not including my visit to the ER (for pain killers for my infection in my foot). Last year during a whole crazy episode with the Bactrium, I think she thought that I had schizophrenia, but after a few weeks off the meds I was normal. The last time I said I saw things I got put in a behavior hospital for 10 days. After that I learned that I shouldn't talk about seeing anything.
Yes, it could be.
Just tell her you are still not well.
And Dr. Phil told you. :)
