could someone help me? i am very scared

if i laugh, my head will fall and i cant pick it up, "loss of energy, feels like shocks too". if i pick up something that takes a little effort to move, i hit the floor wide awake "shocks", "every mucsle in my body shutsdown", very confusing for me. i can get up as soon as i hit the floor. when i am tickled, i cant move "it's like i am paralized and being shocked, tingled" at the time all this stuff i explained is happening.

I test myself to do pushups, sometimes i can get to 2 before i loose control and go threw a tempary "paralizeation of tingles or shocks" as i call it, i am very scared and dont understand why this is happening to me, just the other day i was %100 health. i did go to the doctor several times and had bloodwork, i was told it was a viruse and would go away, but i dont feel right and was given no meds. this has been going on for olmost 2 weeks now. early into this sickness i could not even buttone my paints without "body paralizing on me".

Any ideals? thank you, Brian:confused:

  • This could be narcolepsy...Sounds like it from some stuff I read at the doctor the other day. Ask your doctor about that.

  • that seems to be on the right track, thank you for that, i managed to fine "cataplexy" thanks to the info you have given me, allthough i dont know if this will pass "caused by pill or something?", or if its going to stick with me, but i was fine 2 weeks ago, and i do hope that this passes, Thanks for the help, any readers know of anything else still feel free to post.

  • i'm so happy to say that my problems are all gone, so i think. i have not been weak or having the shock passouts anymore, the last effect that i remember is having them spells when i was laughing, i'm glad to come back to say that i feel much better and also feel that i am well now. i have been working, and getting out of the house, and doing pushups. i also prey at night more. before i got sick i had a poddy mouth but now i feel that i may have been punished? i might be going crazy but i sure am the happies person in the world because i have my health back. god bless the ones with cataplexy. i will prey for everyone that has it. Thanks Wrong Diagnosis forums for helping me find my related problem which was Cataplexy, and thank god i dont have it, but it does best describe the sympton's that i did have. :D
