    Default Anxiety after seizure? Extreme muscle tension. Need help!

    I was a very healthy, active 28 year old female until about 7 months ago when I began having such horrible neck and back muscle spasms. The muscle tension caused me to stop all activities and have to lie down several times throughout the day in order to try and relieve the pain. I started seeing a chiropractor who helped with the headaches I would get from these, but the muscle pain has gotten worse. It is so bad that when someone gives me a light back rub, it hurts the muscles.
    I went to a pain management doctor and he attempted to perform a diagnostic procedure on my neck and when he did, he injected a medication into a blood vessel on accident and it caused me to have a seizure. I have absolutely no history of seizures in my personal life or in my family. Ever since this happened, I have had the worst anxiety. About ten years ago, I had panic attacks and was put on medication for it, but then learned how to maintain a level of calm without meds. I have been sober 2 and a half years and am in no hurry to jump back on medication to regulate this. I am looking for alternative methods while still dealing with this incredible muscle pain, which certainly does not help with the anxiety. I am concerned that this seizure did some sort of permanent damage and am at a loss of what to do next. Any advice about the muscle tension and/or anxiety would be greatly appreciated.

    Muscle tension will happen if we dont exercise properly on a daily basis. In order to get rid from the muscle tension, stay calm and listen light music with full concentration. I do hear the music While free hours at my office. Often I hear tracks from Ojas - Collection of Mantras and Chants (Ojas Foundation) to get rid from stress, anxiety and muscle tension.

    i know it may sound crazy but have you ask your doctor about fibromyalgia? I know that's how mine started with it only in the neck and shoulders but now I have widespread pain. Through out my body. It didn't start til I was in my early 20's. Shortly after the seizures started and they found a brain tumor that is not operable. Living with the seizures is bad enough. Coming too and seeing people staring at you only adds to the anxiety. I feel sometimes like a circus freak show I should be charging admission to. The widespread pain is something I take medication for on a daily basis. as for the seizures, I still take dilantin. I really wish I could be sober and medication free such as yourself. But i don't see that happening anytime soon. As fr the anxiety, i am still dealing and see a therapist on a regular basis. I wish I had answers for you. But I commend you for being medication free. Keep fighting it'll get better for you. God bless.

    Seizures is not an easy thing to deal. Seizure can damage maximum for any man or woman which implies man or woman's life. I suggest you to take magnesium more seriously. A recent research says that magnesium is very necessary for a healthy heart and brain. To keep calm and out of anxiety or stress, you must follow it. It's like Magnesium Minerals. As you are saying that you were healthy. I guess you want to go back as what you were.

    Sounds like you have a calcium deficiency. Every time you sweat your body sweats out a soup of nutrients. If you don't replace them then deficiency of any vitamin or mineral can happen. Studies have also showed that carbonated drinks leach calcium from your bones.
    Calcium is the most common mineral in the body.

    Deficiency Symptoms of Calcium

    1. Stunted Growth.
    2. Calcium tetany - leg cramps.
    3. Numbness, tingling in arms and legs.
    4. Children, Rickets; Adults, Osteomalcia.
    5. Nervousness, heart palpitations, slow pulse.
    6. Excessive menstruation - lengthy menstruation.

    Calcium Comparison:

    A calcium ``salt'' contains calcium along with another substance, such as carbonate or gluconate. Some calcium salts have more calcium (elemental calcium) than others. For example, the amount of calcium in calcium carbonate is greater than that in calcium gluconate. . When you look for a calcium supplement, be sure the number of milligrams on the label refers to the amount of elemental calcium, and not to the strength of each tablet.

    Also I would like to add that Vitamins and Minerals work together. They have co-factors. So, taking a great multi-Vitamin is really important along with the extra calcium. Make sure your vitamins are natural and not synthetic. Otherwise you're just throwing your money away and you won't see any benefit.
