Message for Octoman

Hey Octoman, My name is christina. I am 20 and from ny. you can read a lot of my posts on the thread of sara's that say that she finally told her parents about her addiction to pain pills. To learn about me go there. I wrote a lot about my life to wicchris. im hoping she is going to return my messages. I am dealing with Neurological problems right now. i get tingiling sensations starting from my head going to my toes. I also have muscle twitches and pain in my left chest, this all started when i stopped seroquel cold turkey 6months ago. seroquel is a mood stabilizer, but also used for sleeping. I stopped it because it caused me a lot of anxiety. I stopped it for a whole month and didnt sleep that whole time period, because my body is used to taken seroquel to put me to sleep. I cant go to sleep naturally, because seroquel screwed that up for me. so i dont know what to do. do u recommend anything??? how is your life??? I dont use drugs or smoke or drink anymore, quit 2 years ago. i also got rid of my negative friends, that used to do these things. now im very religious. I pray a lot. I gotta go, but i hope your good. me No, but pray for me. Love, Christina

Re: Message for Octoman

Hey Christina,
I left you a note on Sara's 'Disneyland" post earlier today. Just wanted to offer an answer to your question regarding things to try for sleep. I'm no expert in this area, but I can say I have had experience recently with Chinese herbal medicine & acupuncture, and this really is powerful stuff. I'm not talking about herbal remedies you might buy at a healthfood store, but real serious Chinese medicines. If you have access to a recommended acupuncturist/herbalist in your area, it may be worth looking into. A good doctor can effectively treat many serious health conditions. Of course anything you plan to try you should keep your regular doctor in the loop. I still do think you should consult another 'Western" doc as well, as you may benefit from a fresh perspective regarding the drugs and dosages you are currently on. It couldn't hurt.

All the best to you,
