      thanks for the reply, glad to see you're made it through I cant get any answers from doctors and been to emerg to many times past couple months (never before this).. I got questions for you if that's alright (desperate for answers, you prob help me more than doctors here). I only been taking 50mg of tradazone a day which isnt much, and stopped for 24hrs, felt great and my head was like popped cracking sounds, and then i tried to walk like 4 blocks and then totally head pressure started and then numbness in hands and feet and incredible headache. I think it was small stroke, have you gone through something like this? And the other question is for respiratory depression, how did you deal with this and how long? Basically all I could do past 2 months is very little, when from hyperventaling to now head pressure past when I was at he gym, just out of nowhere and soon as that hit , I cant do much. I have CT scan on head and chest nothing show. I am getting ready to emerg as I type this as precaution if its stroke believe it or not. In rough shape, sorry for the long message
