Advice please. Shaking/Vomiting/Diarrhea - December 24th 2010, 07:58 AM

Ok im 19 years old and these are the things bothering me

1. i shake Really bad when i use my muscles ( for example when i do a sit up it looks like my abbs are shivering really bad, walking down stairs leggs shiver. and through out the day ill just shake ) its been going on for a few months now

2. i feel like im hungry, starving hungry, all day. i can eat but then like an hour to two hours later im starving again. and if i start to eat i feel like im going to vomit. and if i eat i do. and i stay hungry.

3. i am 5'9" and weigh [Edited] ( it jumps around ). i went to the army last year and weighed [Edited] more when i came out.

4. Every morning when i wake up i have diarrhea. around 11am everyday.

5. i get really bad headaches randomly and they last for about 30 mins.

6. i have a girl friend and i have been getting extra shaky and a nervous feeling before we have sex and its so bad it prevents me from getting an erection. and that just started happening in the last 2 months, and before that i was fine

i dont know whats wrong? my dad said i might have crohns disease. or an overactive thyriod. i have a doctors app but i know they are going to have to take blood and stuff so its gonna be a while before i know. Can ANYONE help?

also i am taking trelipital, i dont know exact spelling. but its for bipolar/ anti depresant.

Side effects of trileptal are exactly what you describe.

Try googling the side-effects to get an accurate description, but it sounds exactly like what my girlfriend used to get on the same stuff. Apparently it's because the drug reduces sodium in your system, leading to lower electrolites. I'd assume that either stopping the drug or drinking electrolite drinks or something with a lot of sodium in it might help - but I'm not sure. Possibly try that while you wait to see if something helps.

It's good you've done something about it because, so my girlfriend says, the side affects can include increasing severity of seizures.

Good luck!

Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.

While like the above user said they could be side effects of trileptal, I think you should really go to a doctor. The side effects shouldn't be affecting you so much and for so long, and it's possible that either something else is causing this or that medicine isn't right for you, unless you want to put up with the adverse effects.

"Love me for me, accept the fact I'm true, live like I want, fufill my dreams,
Dream of me, run out free, capture your words and never let them go."

I'll see you on the other side.
