Hi everyone! Need opinions!!! Well, I was watching Homeland, and I can really relate to Carrie, so much so, it was giving me ogida! For example, when she gets these crazy theories (that are usually right) that sounds exactly like me. I am super intelligent, moreso than the average person, and am very passionate about nutrition and healthcare, current standards. I am only a med assistant. But I am so smart that the docs actually ask my opinions on things and multiple docs have asked me what I used to do when first meeting me (that are shocked that i was only stay at home mom and not have had some major schooling) and multiple docs have told me working with me is like working with someone with already 10 yrs experience. I am fast, work hard, very compassionate, really good with patients, and I love helping people. I have excellent memory, photographic memory, docs can't believe I remember stuff about patients from 2 years ago...(I just make it a point to really look a person in their eyes and feel them out, where are they coming from? why are they feeling the way they feel? therefore, it helps to remember people and situations when u think like that). I am outgoing, friendly, bubbly, and I like to joke around a lot and make people feel better. I work really fast, too, especially when i am feeling a little hyper, for no apparent reason, just kind of high on life, and that feeling is pretty much every day. It is a little exhausting, though, to be so open, kind, caring, fastworking, meticulous, all that stuff, but it makes me feel good to help others and go out of my way to help people. Anyway, this past year, I have been having some strange health problems with no answer, and I wonder since testing is inconclusive if I am actually mental. Maybe the reason I feel unable to sit still and "grandious" is actually a bit of hypomania. Maybe I am stuck in a partial manic phase, or maybe not, maybe I am just really smart and a good person. I am not stressed or depressed. Well, only one thing stresses me... that I am a working mom. I get up at 5 every day and work 8-5 so I don't get home until 6. I have 2 children and that is difficult with then dinner, homework, running around after school stuff, and I do not like it. I want to be the mom that is home when the kids get home so i can help with homework, rather than having to wait until 7 to do homework when both myself and daughter are tired. My husband works and travels a lot for work, so it's usually just me, my 2 dogs, and my 14 and 8 yr old children, so that's a pretty tough schedule. Also, mon-friday there is no time to do anything fun or break from routine, it's just work, dinner, homework, bedtime. I can't go to the gym. I can't go out and do something fun. I hate that part of my life but it is what it is so i have to suck it up. Anyway, I have been getting muscle twitching for over 6 months now, with weird patterns. I think it is just benign because there is no muscle weakness, it's just annoying. It started where i had PVCs in my heart for 8 weeks straight, all day long, about 6 per minute, then that stopped and it jumped to my right eyelid for 8 weeks straight all day long about 4 or 5 spasms every 2 minutes all day long, then that stopped and it moved to the right side area of my mouth, chin, and cheek all day long. So then i thhought maybe lacking vitamins or electrolytes... incorporating more calcium in diet, taking vitamins, increasing salt, and they greatly lessened, but i still get them every day. Now, i get them everywhere in my body, my thighs, hips, back, arms, face, eyebrows, i even had the twitching once in my girly area, which was really weird. I notice after i go on my daily brisk 30 minute walk on my lunch break every day the muscles in thighs will be twitching. I read it's normal, from lactic acid or something like that, or just plain old stimulation from exercise so i guess it's actually a good thing. All my testing is normal, except my upper endocscopy... my EGD was Marsh2 (which means it looks like celiac) but I am negative celiac genes so therefore I do not have celiac. So people in my situation are "unknown". I have tons of autoimmune disorders in my family (my dad, aunt, cousin with MS...sister with lupus, hashimoto, brother dishysdrosis and alopecia areata... then we have aunts, cousins, uncles, with crohn;s, UC, other strange stuff). Anyway, I started thinking maybe something in my brain is misfiring neurons which is causing overstimulation of my muscles and nerves, thus resulting in twitching. Maybe when i feel super creative and energetic it is actually a bit of hypomania. I also notice if i feel super "high on life"it usually ends with all of a sudden getting a bad ocular migraine. That is my pattern, so on days when i feel really awesome, i know a migraine might be coming. So something must be chemically going on with me. Does this sound like bipolar, or am i just your average 30 somethings working mom that is just a little burnt out from work and running around all the time and that is taking it's toll on me and telling me to slow down? thoughts???
