Hi Dr, thank you for your reply.
about 1 month after stopping the ritalin i started to get muscle spasms, fascilations and tremors all worse when under stress.
I also developped seizures, that looked like grand mal but i did not loose consiousness and could talk during the long lasting seizures.
I had a CT, MRI and countless EEGs and all seemed normal. just i seemed to have some minor epileptic aticity in a temporal lobe in the begining. it was so minor that 2 out of 3 neuroligsts did not even notice it and the other one admitted in the end that it could not be epilelpsy when looking at my symptomes. also lyrica and rivotril made me have more seizures i nthe end instaid of less.
i received the diagnosis of stress induced by the ritalin i took months ago.
since 1 week i also started to hyperventilate and cry for no reason
now i started paxil 20mg. 4 days of 10mg and now the first day of 20mg.
i still get spasms, twitches etc.
the anxiety mainly comes bcs i dont know what is going on with me.
as a side note, my wife , who is under alot of stress due to my issues, told me that today she also starts to have twitches in her triceps and calves and has a stress feeling in the side of the face also just like me
