So I am having a mild episode... I lost balance and fell onto couch. Then felt very giggly (normal). I am talking funny, putting words that don't make sense and mispronouncing words. Then I was talking to my husband and felt an uncontrollable urge to cry and then suddenly there were tears streaming down my face and I was blubbering like an idiot. It lasted less than 45 sec and I felt distressed that I couldn't control it. I am not depressed and have never experienced this before.
Well, our emotions are controlled by our brains, obviously. I know that with MS, emotional instability can be a symptom. We share many symptoms with MS. I've had a similar "episode". I'm a VERY non-emotional person. My mother was so uber emotional that it really turned me off to emotional displays(my brothers and sisters are the same), so I'm very calm, cool, and in charge of my emotions. But I've had a few episodes where I've lost control. It's kinda scary.
I agree, I also have these spontaneous episodes of emotion sometimes. It just comes out of the blue. It reminds me of when I was pregnant. I would cry at commercials and feel like a blubbering moron...lol...at least then I could blame it on hormones now I think it's more due to brain damage. Anyway, know you are not alone :)
I also am wondering if anyone else has really strange and vivid dreams? I have always been a dreamer, but now they are constant and very strange, VERY STRANGE!!!
Lots of color and most seems to revolve around situations that I have no control over. Like they all are saying the same thing to me even though they are very different circumstances.
Oooooo yeah... I have the craziest dreams - VERY vivid... and I remember them just about every morning. I should seriously write a book - it would be weirder than Alice and Wonderland :)
I love to share my dreams because people are so entertained by them... hah! I nanny for two boys and the younger one used to ask me everyday when I got to his house what dream did I have.... it was like story time.
But along with the weird ones.. I do get some terrifying ones :( They seem so real and sooo scary that I can't sleep when I wake up from them.
right before my surgery I was having dreams but it was when I was in that in-between period of awake and asleep, so I thought that what was going on was real, and it was always something like someone coming into the house, and my children screaming, and then I would :wake up" all the way, and be so terrified of getting out of bed, but I would force myself to go check on them, but you know how a dream can make you wake up still feeling those same emotions? also, I had one mild "drop attack" episode is bed when this happened, and the next time I had a true drop attack when I completely went paralyzed all over - I couldn't even breath - and when I started "coming back" I started crying hysterically- probably cause I thought I almost died - anyways, since the surgery I haven't had it since.
Dealing with fatigue and other symptoms can be very hard. Maybe it is just a discharge of emotions that crop up inside.
I am normally not a touchy-feely kind a guy myself, but sometimes even little things get to me and I go all soft and rubbery. Then my mind fogs up and I say or do something stupid that makes it even worse.. Fortunately I have my cat to cheer me up :)
I often have vivid dreams, especially early in the morning. I wake up, roll over on my other side and get another dream, and then another and another and... When I finally get up I feel tired and have increased pressure on my ears.
Yes I too get the crying for no reason at all, one min fine next just break down, my moods are also starting to get very irrational aswell, one min happy next angry but I can track mood swings and pinpoint them to noise.
I hate being in crowded rooms with lots going on music,tv,conversation it drives me mad gives me huge confusion probs then my balance goes and I get tunnel vision.
Thanks selma for confirmation this is a huge one for me that my DH just does not get, im really worried we have 40th birday celebration my sis-in-law at her house on 16th and im already worried thinking oh god music,kids running round, lots of people in a small house, my worst nitemare is about to come true. I am going to explain to DH that if i dissapear into spare rm its cos i cant cope.
This is something I had issues with for yrs...never knew y.....every holiday at the in-laws I am in a quiet corner...I am called anti-social...but it is just too much...if only the parents of the kids that run a muck would pay attention to their Indians...then it may not be as bad.
