Sure, below are the answers to your questions:
1. For past few years, I sometimes take 1mg Lorazepam when the seizures are keeping me up at night, and usually it helps enough so I can get to sleep. I use it sparingly to avoid the chance of building a dependency/tolerance.
2. Not sure what you mean beyond what I mentioned, I've seen 10 or more different psychologists and a couple psychiatrists.
3. There is not an apparent stressor at this time, but if I searched for past life aspects that may have been my first steps on this path of unhealthy mental state, they may include:
I started feelings of being an outcast and low self-worth starting in Jr. High.
Not able to get a girlfriend my whole life.
To divert myself from these things I dove very intensely into my startup businesses.
(but don't know if these are the cause of my chemical imbalance, or the result.)
4. I was diagnosed by me in early 2011, based on my own logic and observation of all these physical ailments that nobody seemed to know the cause, nor solution. (All the mental professionals I'd seen over the years didn't seem to know much about their field, and never mentioned such a concept, so I can't say if they even know it exists) About a month ago I saw an eye specialist in NYC, and his conclusion, without me mentioning it, was that my vision problems were the result of Psychogenic Movement Disorder... essentially conversion disorder.
The following is a timeline of when my current conditions began. My hope is this data will shed light on which conditions may be the result of others; and more importantly, what may be common cause(s) between them. The goal being to find and resolve the underlying source creating the observed symptoms.
1990 – Acne on face, neck, scalp, chest, back. Continues today despite aggressive topical and systemic treatments.
1993 – The start of depression, low self-worth, loneliness, etc. In general, this has escalated each year up to present.
1997 – First of 4 surgeries to remove nasal polyps, yet they return each time.
2001 – First major depressive episode, including thoughts of not wanting to continue living.
2002 – Dermagraphism, which has escalated in recent years. Anti-histamines don’t help much and also don’t address the cause of the mast cell fragility.
2005 – Chronic state of stress, tension, rushed, agitated, out-of-time; like being locked in fight-flight mode.
2008 – Psoriasis on the face and scalp.
2008 – Start of vision difficulties due to over-convergence and over-accommodation. It has progressively gotten worse and is now so severe I’m almost blind unless I strain very hard, resulting in bad headache. I’ve seen many eye specialists in USA and their conclusion was it’s not an eye problem but Conversion Disorder / Psychogenic Movement Disorder.
2008 - Started having symptom of uncontrolled movement of legs, arms, head (Restless Limbs). This happens mostly when lying in bed at night, but sometimes during the day, and often keeps me awake for many hours or until morning. Like this, but not yet this severe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJXxcGdJh8M
2009 – Trichotillomania. I’m aware, but can't stop myself.
2009 - First major panic attack with full body perspiration. It has re-occurred on several occasions.
2010 – First major Crohn’s flair and diagnosis via scope. Before this, my body mass was low at 160lb., but by end of that year weight dropped to only 102lb. (currently 118). I required several infusions because of much blood loss every day. April 2011 full colectomy and ileostomy. July 2011 symptoms started in rectum. July 2011 Ileorectal anastomosis. Rectum continued to get worse until frequency was 40+ per day, so November 2011 had a diverting loop ileostomy. Until present, rectum is still bleeding on some days, so I cannot get the diverting loop closed despite how much I disdain the ostomy bag.
2012 - I get episodes of stinging in both hands or hands and feet. It happens more often when I am startled or when I’m about to begin physical activity. (The feeling is like many needles or as if I placed my hands into glycolic acid).
