Convusions and slight paralysis after distress? - January 14th 2013, 01:10 AM

I'm not sure if this is part of my schizophrenia but from what I've researched, it's not.
So, when I'm stressing out like real bad over anything serious and distressing (typically something about my sanity), I start to panic and usually it ends with a panic attack, like racing heart, shaking, numbness, and constant fear, and I end up rocking back and forth. But other times, it gets worse. Those times, instead of panicing at first, my body becomes extremely calm but I start hyperventalating. Eventually, my breathing steadies and my body tenses up as I get a horrible headache. Then the room begins to spin and voices come out of nowhere with the paranoid echoing thoughts I'm stressing over.
Sometimes, this lasts for 5 minutes and then it stops and I start crying. But sometimes it doesn't.
After maybe 5 minutes, everything stops and everything's quiet and for some reason that makes the thoughts I'm stressing over way more intence and it's like I'm screaming and shaking inside but nothing happens outside. Then, my head starts to ache just a little and my body grows incredibly weak. Then I collapse on the ground and I can't get up and I'm just stuck on the ground and my eyes open and close and drift around. Then my head starts moving back and forth, just left and right and I can't feel my body. And then I start to hyperventalate and I'm panicing inside and I try to move but my body's incredibly heavy so I begin to panic even more. And then my entire body just starts shaking and spazzing and just convulsing uncontrollibly for a good 10 minutes and sometimes I yell and sometimes I try to call out for help but I just end up speaking complete gibberish and then my voice goes away. Then, the hallucinations grow intence and there's a billion people surrounding me and laughing and holding their hands above like holding puppet strings and then a shadowy figure comes out and places a hand on my mouth and that's when I lose my voice or they place a hand on my eyes and then I can't see anything but I think my eyes closed. Eventually, it passes and I'm just left lying there and then I want to move but I can't at all. I tell myself to get up and my body doesn't respond. I can only move my eyes and I just lay there in peace with no thoughts or voices or anything and I can't feel my body and I just can't move at all. After, maybe 10 minutes, I can move an arm or two and I push the rest of my body to sit up and when I try to stand, I stand as if nothing has happened and there's just a buzz and then I can't feel anything emotionally.
I had this before when I was really bad and stressed out and such before I had meds. Now that I'm off them again, it's come back. I didn't want to tell my psychiatrist about it because I'm afraid they might think I have epilepsy or something bad when I just think it's something with my mind.
What is this and how can I make it go away?


THE POINT OF SINGULARITY IS NOTHING AS NOTHING BEGAN EVERYTHING
PULSING IN THE EXPAND CONSUME WITHOUT BARRIER OR BORDER
IT IS DARK BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKNESS IT IS OVER BECAUSE IT IS THE END
THERE IS NO SENTRY BECAUSE NONE DARE APPROACH
IT HAS NEVER BEEN AND IT IS ALL THAT EVER WAS
AT THE CENTER YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER
YOU DO NOT FIND YOURSELF THERE IS NO CENTER AND THERE IS NO YOU THERE IS ONLY MADNESS
WE ARE ALL HERE NOW.
WE ARE ALL HERE.
WE ARE.

First off, I'm no doctor. Though, here's my uneducated opinion. It sounds to me like a psychotic episode, which is apart of schizophrenia. You said it happened before you were on medication, then seemed like it stopped while were on it, and started happening again now that you're off the medication. It sounds like the medication was helping, so you should definitely talk to your psychiatrist about that.

You should definitely tell your psychiatrist about this again and talk about medications you should be on. Even if it does turn out to be something like epilepsy, you can be treated for it. Be it epilepsy or schizophrenia you should have treatment. No disorder is really better or worse than another, it's still a disorder.

Your best bet is to tell your psychiatrist about it because it probably is a symptom from having schizophrenia.

I have schizoaffective disorder and I can definitely relate to things like this, so please feel free to PM me if you ever need to talk.

I agree with Immy, it sounds somewhat psychotic which would be part of your schizophrenia and since you said it stopped while you were on medication I think that just strengthens that possibility.
I think you should tell your psychiatrist, when in doubt tell your doctor.
Also, has anyone seen this happen to you, or has it only happened when you're alone?
