View Full Version : mental thunderstorms

LOL! Haven't been back to this section of the forum in a good while. But BP is creeping back into my mind /life. I am on a low dose of meds that work pretty good for me, (not perfect but pretty good - lamictal). For quite some time I have this dull to big headache, sometimes "thunderstroms", where I get a buzzing in my head (I used to have narcolepsy but this is over). I can live with these thunderstorms, but I do loose time /energy. Does anyone eperience something like this?

I have this theory, these storms are a sign of things being worked on, in my subconscious and there is this enormous energy expense to rework something that I don't quite have access to. That these storms are really a "good" sign on some level. Sometimes though, I feel like my head is going to crack. Curious what you guys think?

Have you told your doctor about this?

Sometimes my mind feels like it's buzzing and electric (not very often)

The only issues I have with my lamictal is when I've changed doses, I miss the 25mg dose to my 425mgs or when I went from brand to generic, thus the add of 25mgs. I get more of a headache associated with these things which leaves me in bed. Feels like my head is in a vise and my eyes are going to pop out. Very similar to my migraines.

Please call your doctor, I don't think this is a symptom you should ignore.

its possible something like this could be alleviated with the addition of an antidepressent, preferably not an SSRI. (JMO) I feel very strongly that bipolar is hard to control with only a mood stabilizer however its not impossible.
