Human influenza viruses are known to drift, or mutate, from season to season, allowing the viruses to spread through the population a little easier. At the same time, humans are constantly evolving antibodies to fight the viruses. The human immune system contains a range of antibodies that can bind to the flu virus, meaning there is a higher potential for the population to fend off viruses that are slightly unfamiliar, Webby said.

Predicting which strain of the flu will dominate a flu season involves mapping seasonal trends, field testing and, to some degree, guess work. Sometimes, the vaccine is not a good match.

Slight drifts in a dominant influenza virus are not a huge cause for concern, according to health experts. Vaccines can still provide some level of defense against the flu, even when the vaccine is not a perfect match. “It would have to be a very severe drift for a vaccine to provide no protection at all,” Webby said. Despite a mutation in the H3N2, the vaccine has averted roughly a third of the flu cases seen this season, according to the CDC.

The three types of influenza viruses are types A, B and C. Influenza viruses A and B are what cause most of the human infections, with A typically being the more severe of the two. Viruses are made up of seven segments of RNA, or genetic material. “Every so often, one of those segments gets changed very dramatically,” Patrick Schlievert, a professor and chair of microbiology at the University of Iowa, told IBTimes. “Those are the ones that usually bring in a new pandemic.”

The viruses that worry health experts the most are those “coming out of animal reservoirs,” Webby said. They are what health experts call the “pandemic strains” – viruses unfamiliar to the human immune system that suddenly jump into humans.

In 2009, a novel strain of the H1N1 influenza A virus, commonly known as swine flu, made its way to the U.S. The first cases were reported in March in California. The virus killed an estimated 10,000 Americans, including 7,500 young adults and 1,100 children, by December. Health experts estimated that more than 15 percent of the country had been infected with the virus. “If a brand new virus comes in, it’s obviously going to be more severe and effect a greater part of the population,” Schlievert said.

However, even if an unforeseen strain were to make its way into the human population, health officials are, for the most part, prepared. A hundred years of medical advances have equipped physicians with the tools to keep death rates from influenza outbreaks relatively low, Schlievert argued. If the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed upwards of 30 to 50 million people worldwide, were to happen today, “it might kill 100,000 people,” Schlievert said. “The reason is that medical care is so much better” than it was nearly a century ago, he said.

Flu cases are widespread across the state, with hospitalizations for flu-like symptoms almost doubling to 287 during the first week of January, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

"Influenza-like illness is now widespread throughout Ohio for the first time this flue season, and the number of associated hospitalizations are rising," the department said in a written statement.

The number of hospitalizations for flu symptoms — fever, cough, sore throat, body aces, headache, chills and fatigue — rose from 157 the last week of December, and the total hospitalization since the start of this flu season in October is 654, the department said.

Some people also experience vomiting or diarrhea, according to the CDC. Most people recover in several days to less than two weeks. Children and the elderly are most susceptible to complications of the flu.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said flu activity across the country is expected to continue to rise for at least several weeks. Flu season generally lasts through May, and hospitalizations generally peak between December and February, the department said.

Influenza vaccination is the safest and most effective way to prevent the flu in people older than 6 months, the department said. Other ways to avoid it include washing hands, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, covering coughs and sneezes, avoid touching eyes, noses and mouths, and staying home when sick until you are fever free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicines.

"There are no flu vaccine shortages across Ohio," said Sietske de Fijter, chief of the Bureau of Infectious Diseases for the department. "The short time it will take to get a flu vaccine is much less than the time it will take you to recover from the flu."

The department doesn't track the number of aldut flu deaths.

There were 3,691 hospitalizations for flu-like symptoms during the last flu season, according to the state.

Just wondering if your neck pain went away? I was only on 10mg of lexapro for 7 weeks, and now have neck and shoulder stiffness with being on this drug and coming off of it.

To Denice and others with neck pain.

I am so happy someone finally mentioned the neck pain! I am being weaned off Lexapro, too. I also have fibromyalgia.. I always thought the Lexapro helped me control my fibro pain as much as helped with depression. As I am discontining the Lexapro, my fibro pain has increased. BUT now I also have a severe "pins and needles" neck pain, almost like a herniated disc. Is this the type pain you are speaking of?

If this is all part of the withdrawl, I will deal with it as well as all the other withdrawal symptoms. But this one hell of a ride I never want to experience again.

I have been taking Lexapro for about 10 years because I have depression. my doctor wants me so stop taking it and put me on something else because I now have I also have P.D.S.D now. do you know if I will go crazy and bring my self to the edge of suicide like I was before I was taking it.

My primary care doctor started me on 10mg Lexapro. I had numerous side effects, which included an intense hot flash in the first week or so of taking the medicine. I also had 3 itchy welts form on my chest region, the doctor told me to stop taking the Lexapro after I told him about the itchy welts. I felt tingling and electric type shocking throughout my body. I couldn't sleep well at times, and had some very intense scary thoughts and heightened sensation to commit suicide. After noticing the itchy welts, I decided to stop the Lexapro. It made me feel the way I hoped it would a good bit of the time, but it was not worth all the other feelings it induced. I cut back to 5mg for the last week to taper myself off, knowing that was the best way to stop meds. I told my doctor about the itchy welts after I dropped to the 5mg the last week, that's when he told me to stop taking the Lexapro. I said (knowing I already had begun that process) should I quit slowly, he said no, stop it immediately. I am afraid to take any medications these days, I have trouble with the trusting, especially considering the precarious side effects. I hope this was helpful in some small way.

I was recently switched from Prozac to lexapro. About three months. My dr recently upped my dose from 10mg to 20mg even after I told him how itchy and restless I've become. I am covered in hives daily. Feel like I can't relax and constantly shake my leg or foot.. Thought I was just crazy until reading these posts! I have literally scratched my arms legs and hands raw. Grrrrrrrr!! And the dreams are the worst to boot. Now reading about the withdrawal symptoms scares me. Facing a lot in my life soon and really need the extra help, but not sure what to do now.

I was on lexapro for about a year. It really helped my anxiety but the downside was I gained 25 pounds. I was constantly eating when I was not hungry and craving sweets. I had no energy to do anything and would come home from work and by go to the sofa. I finally decided I couldn't gain anymore weight and discussed it with my Dr. He advised I wean off of it gradually. I was on 20mg and instead of taking it every day I took it every other day for 3 weeks. Then I dropped it to 10 mg every other day for a week. I was ok for about 5 days. Then I started crying over nothing and getting irritable. Then it got worse. I was blowing up screaming at my husband over things that would normally not bother me. Having temper fits, throwing things, or sobbing over the least little stress. I have a long commute to work and road rage was scary. After a week of this I went back to Dr.and he put me on low dose of Welbutrin to be increased after 2 weeks. After a few days I started to calm down some. After 10 days I still cry easily and get irritated with any little stress but I am able to control myself.

I took 10mg of lexapro for 7 years for panic attacks.Except for 13 pounds of weight gain I felt great.

Six month ago I decided wean of to loose the weight.No problem!

I lost my excess weight within 3 weeks and felt great without any side effects.That lasted 4 month and when my brother died 2 month ago my panic attacks came back worse than ever.

After weeks of misery I am back on lexapro and feel good again.

I guess I will take it for the rest of my live.

After becoming rather sick I visited an urgent care facility where the doctor, without notifying her of my past diagnosis of depression and GAD, prescribed me a prescription of a months worth of 20mg Lexapro. I am newish to the area and have a hard time actually sitting down and doing things like finding a primary care physician or psychiatrist so I have neither at the moment sadly. After finally finding a doctor the earliest they can get me in is July, needless to say I can barely function around people. I am an emotional mess, I constantly get dizzy and the frequency of the brain zaps is almost debilitating. I have almost been getting random numbness and a needle like sensation throughout my left side of my body. I also haven't slept well in the past week since the end of my prescription. If I had known I wouldn't have been able to find a doctor with earlier openings I wouldn't have started taking it. This is ridiculous and I can barely function at work due to the withdrawals symptoms, which have also put a strain on my relationships with my significant other as well as my roommates.

I have been taking Lexapro 20 mg for about 9 years. I began experiencing extreme irritability, anger and frustration. My doctor began weaning me off and adding Zoloft. That didn't work. Now my doctor is taking me down to 10 mg every day and 100 Wellbutrin. The ringing in my head is horrible. It hasn't stopped for 2 weeks. Has anyone else experienced this withdrawal symptom?

Einen wichtigen Hinweis, ob es sich tatsächlich um Grippe-Viren handelt, gibt der Influenza-Schnelltest. Für diesen Test wird aus dem Nasen- oder Rachenraum Speichel mit einem Wattestäbchen abgestrichen und auf einen Teststreifen gebracht. Färbt sich der Test, ist eine Influenza-Infektion sehr wahrscheinlich.

Manchmal muss das Material aber weiter in ein Labor geschickt werden, wo man durch eine Genanalyse das Virus hundertprozentig identifizieren kann.

Wurden bei einem Patienten Grippe-Viren nachgewiesen, muss der Arzt dies dem Gesundheitsamt melden. So können Vorsichtsmaßnahmen getroffen werden, die eine größere Ausbreitung der Krankheit verhindern sollen. Im Krankenhaus etwa werden Erkrankte in einem Einzelzimmer isoliert. Besucher und medizinisches Personal müssen Schutzkleidung tragen, wenn sie das Krankenzimmer betreten. Auch regelmäßiges Händewaschen dämmt die Weitergabe der Viren an andere Personen ein.

Die Grippe wird durch Viren hervorgerufen, die man wissenschaftlich als Influenza-Viren bezeichnet. Insgesamt gibt es drei unterschiedliche Grippeviren-Gattungen: A, B und C. Aber nur Influenza A-Viren können den Menschen wirklich gefährlich werden. Anders als die B-Viren, die meist nur mildere Krankheitsverläufe provozieren und die C-Viren, die nur sehr sporadisch auftreten, sind sie für die schweren Grippeepidemien verantwortlich. Sie sind sehr wandlungsfähig und werden in eine ganze Menge Untergruppen eingeteilt.

Diese Subgruppen, die zum Beispiel H1N1 oder H3N2 heißen, gliedern sich nach den Proteinen auf der Oberfläche der Influenza-A-Viren, mit deren Hilfe diese in die Wirtszellen eindringen und sich anschließend aus dieser wieder befreien können. H steht dabei für Hämagglutinin, N für Neuraminidase.

Tritt die Grippe zeitlich und örtlich gehäuft auf, spricht man von einer Epidemie. Überschreitet die Erkrankungswelle Länder oder sogar Kontinente nennt man das Pandemie. Grippewellen treten beinahe jedes Jahr in der Winterszeit auf. Alle zehn bis 40 Jahre kommt es zu einer Grippe-Pandemie, die aber unterschiedlich schwer verlaufen kann. An der „Schweinegrippe“ starben im Jahr 2009 weltweit 18.000 Menschen.

  • Activité grippale faible, tendance à la baisse

Le système de surveillance de la grippe au Québec est coordonné par la Direction de la vigie sanitaire (DVS) du ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS). Les renseignements fournis par ce système de surveillance servent à informer le Ministère lui-même, les organisations régionales de la santé et la population sur la situation épidémiologique concernant la grippe ainsi qu’à soutenir les interventions de santé publique.
Ses principaux objectifs sont les suivants:

  • identifier de manière précoce la circulation des virus de la grippe au Québec et en suivre l’évolution;
  • consigner des informations sur le type, le sous-type et la caractérisation antigénique des souches de virus de l’influenza en circulation afin de pouvoir comparer celles-ci avec la composition du vaccin utilisé et orienter les interventions de santé publique;
  • suivre l’évolution de l’activité grippale et évaluer les répercussions de cette activité sur la population, en ce qui a trait à la morbidité et à la mortalité;
  • déterminer quelles sont les populations affectées afin de faciliter l’identification des groupes pour lesquels le risque de souffrir des complications de la grippe est élevé et établir des comparaisons avec d’autres populations ou avec d’autres saisons d’influenza;
  • détecter, de manière précoce, tout phénomène inhabituel, y compris une dérive ou une cassure antigénique, une résistance aux antiviraux, une présentation clinique atypique ou une gravité inusitée de la maladie dans la population;
  • évaluer les effets des mesures de prévention et de contrôle de l’influenza.

Le DSV utilise différents indicateurs pour suivre l’activité grippale au Québec. Il diffuse les résultats toutes les semaines lorsque les virus de l’influenza sont détectés dans plus de 3 % des échantillons analysés.

contact your doc, and once again i ask u r u on other meds cause of the interactions?

Hi Im bi polar and I have been on in it for 3 or 4 years was on 200mg now Im on 300mg, no side effects but 4 me. Its a common side effect to have flu like symtoms, (body aches and chills).
I would still recommend u tell your doc.

hope this helps

i did talk to my doc and i think it is time for a second opinion. did anyone gain weight. i also have gained 15 lbs most fluid but how good is that on the rest of your body. i am afraid it is going to effect my heart

Try to avoid fluids that have to much sodium in them..that causes water retention. even bottled water. there is on form nestle gas free (at least here) free of sodium, also dont add sault to your meals, as sodium is a prservative that pratically comes in everything.

I appreciate everyone's comments. That is really the only side-effect I have had is the flu like symptoms. I have not gained weight at all. To the one that commented on the retention of fluid, that is not normal, if your Dr insist you stay on Lamictal maybe you could request they put you on 25mg of Hydrochlorothiazide a day. That will drop that water weight real quick. I haven't heard of weight gain with Lamictal. Actually, one of the side effects is "Anorexia". Has anyone else experienced weight gain ( or loss) with Lamictal?

Several side effects are possible with Lamictal. Weight gain does appear to be one of them, although it is not among the most commonly reported Lamictal side effects. This data comes from clinical trials where the drug was extensively studied and side effects were documented.

In studies, between 1 and 5 percent of people taking Lamictal for bipolar disorder treatment experienced weight gain. However, weight gain was not reported as a side effect in people taking it to control seizures.

Exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes a day on most days of the week.

Lots of fruits, vegetables, grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products (heart-healthy foods)
Lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts
Limited amounts of foods with saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, sodium (salt), and added sugars.

Limit your intake of alcohol.

Also, if you are noticing a weight gain with Lamictal, talk to your healthcare provider. He or she can suggest other ways for dealing with this problem. He or she may also look for other causes of weight gain, such as certain medical conditions. If the weight gain continues, your healthcare provider may also recommend other lifestyle changes or a possible switch to another bipolar disorder or epilepsy medication.

Lamictal and Weight Gain: Suggestions
If you are noticing unexplained or bothersome weight gain while you are taking Lamictal, there are some things that you can do. Some suggestions include:

One reason you may get a headache as part of your head cold is the release of molecules called cytokines. These molecules are released as part of the body's immune defense against viruses and are known to cause headaches. Additionally, swelling and thick secretions accumulating in the sinus cavities may lead to headache symptoms and sinus pain.

How do you know when you have a common head cold as opposed to a flu virus? Common cold symptoms are less serious than flu symptoms and they usually come on more slowly. You can expect a common cold to last as long as 10 days. Symptoms usually start two to three days after exposure to a cold virus — the incubation period.

There is no cure for the common cold because viruses, unlike bacteria, do not respond to antibiotics. And unlike the flu, common colds can't be prevented because they are caused by more than 200 different viruses. So if you have a headache and other symptoms due to a common cold, all you can do is take care of yourself and wait it out.

Head colds and chest colds are the two main types of colds, but they are caused by the same type of virus. If a cold goes down into your chest, you will probably notice a cough along with your stuffy head, headache, nasal congestion, and other symptoms. Having frequent colds does not mean you are getting different types of colds, but that you are getting exposed to different cold viruses. Summer colds are less frequent than winter colds, but they are not different types of colds.

Cold Remedies for Headache and Other Symptoms

There is no remedy that can make your cold go away any faster, but there are things you can do to relieve some of the symptoms, especially when you need a clear head at work:

  • Add moisture. Moistening your upper airway can help loosen secretions and can relieve pressure and congestion. You can do this with saline nasal drops, a humidifier, or by taking a hot, steamy shower. Drinking plenty of fluids helps keep your mucous thin and moving.
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) will help alleviate headache, sore throat, and fever. Make sure not to use aspirin as a pain reliever for kids, as it could lead to a dangerous condition known as Reye's syndrome.
  • Decongestant nasal sprays. These sprays will open up your nasal passages but must be used with caution, because they can cause a rebound effect that makes your nose even stuffier than before. Don't use these sprays for children unless you check with your doctor first.
  • Cough and cold preparations. These over-the-counter medicines may combine decongestants, cough suppressants, mucous thinners, and pain relievers. They are mostly safe for adults, but carefully read the side effects. Those that contain antihistamines can make you drowsy and should not be used at work if you need to be alert. These medications are not recommended for children.

If over-the-counter medications don’t help and your headaches persist, it’s time to consider other possible causes. One possibility is a sinus infection. With a sinus infection, pain is usually localized over one or more of the sinus areas in the forehead, around the eyes, and over the upper teeth. Sinus pain may get worse with movement. "A cold typically lasts for less than five days and is due to a virus," says Jordan S. Josephson, MD, a sinus specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "Secretions from a cold usually clear over time and do not need to be treated with an antibiotic. However, if your cold lasts more than seven days or you have increasing fever or pain, consider seeing your doctor to make sure you have not developed a sinus infection. If the mucous turns yellow or green, then an antibiotic may be needed."

Any time a headache is the only symptom, it is not likely to be due to a cold, flu, or sinus infection. You may be experiencing a particular type of headache:

  • Tension headache or muscle contraction headache. This is the most common type of headache. Up to 75 percent of people get tension headaches. It may occur frequently, even daily. The pain is usually on both sides of the head and is often described by patients as a throbbing headache.
  • Migraine headache. Six percent of men and 18 percent of women experience migraine headaches. The pain is most often one-sided and pulsating, but can also exist all over the head. Migraine headaches usually come on gradually, reach a peak, and then slowly decrease. The pain may be more severe than tension headache pain and accompanied by visual disturbances and nausea at the onset. Migraine headaches may last from 4 to 72 hours and are often made worse by bright light and movement.
  • Cluster headache. Less common than a migraine or tension headache, cluster headaches occur in about 1 percent of the population, mostly in men. The pain is severe, one-sided (often around the eye), and can be accompanied by nasal congestion and tearing of the eye. The headache occurs in clusters, from every other day up to eight times a day for several weeks.

When Headache Is a Symptom of a Related Condition

In most cases headaches, sinus discomfort, and other symptoms caused by the common cold do not require a call to your doctor. While a headache is a common cold symptom, it can also signal a larger medical problem. If your headache lasts much longer than five days, is severe, or accompanied by vomiting or visual disturbances, make an appointment with your doctor right away. Know that any time a headache is the only symptom, it is not likely to be due to a cold, flu, or sinus infection.

Here are some symptoms of related conditions that should prompt a call, especially if you’re not sure if it’s a cold or allergies or something else entirely:

  • Severe cold symptoms during pregnancy
  • Congestion that lasts more than two weeks
  • Severe headaches
  • High fever that lasts more than three days
  • Trouble breathing
  • Ear pain or ear discharge
  • Persistent nausea or vomiting
  • Influenza or cold symptoms that improve and then come back

Mild headaches and other head cold symptoms that go along with a common cold are usually nothing to be concerned about. The average adult gets two to four colds every year. Call your doctor if you have symptoms that suggest other causes of headaches or other related conditions that may require attention.

Bird Flu is another name for Avian Influenza (AI). There are many different strains of the bird flu virus. The strains are classified as "low pathogenicity" or "highly pathogenic". These classifications refer to the potential for the viruses to kill poultry, not infect people.

The highly pathogenic strains (HPAI) are usually not found in the United States (US). However, in 2014 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) confirmed HPAI in Washington state and Oregon. It is widely believed that the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) subtype H5N8 arrived from Asia/Siberia into North America with migratory birds although other avenues of introduction, such as movement of infected poultry products or people traveling between Asia and North America, cannot be ruled out. Once in North America this virus mixed with low pathogenic North American influenza viruses to create novel Eurasian/North American HPAIV subtypes, H5N2 and H5N1. All three virus subtypes were first detected in British Columbia (H5N2) and in northern Washington State (H5N8, H5N2, and H5N1) in November and December, 2014.

After intensive surveillance of hunter-harvested waterfowl in the Pacific Flyway by state and federal agencies during December, 2014, and in January, and February 2015, it was found that the H5N8 and H5N2 subtypes had become widely established in North American waterfowl within that flyway. It is likely that these waterfowl are playing some role in moving these viruses within the flyway.

We started me on natural supplements (pig hormone). Much better when I do this combined with a candida free diet. But it's hard work! Not for the undisciplined.

2) Low progesterone symptoms fit me also. Hot flashes and dry skin, not that much, but depression, certainly. I've never mentioned this issue to my doctor. I think it's time to do something. At least my depression decreases during the last three days.

1) Wow - those low progesterone symptoms fit me to a T. I've mentioned my concerns to my doctor in the past, but he's never suggested a hormonal issue. We did do an ultrasound for PCOD, which turned up negative. I wonder why he wouldn't think of this first.

5 heart attack symptoms in women that should be talked about more

The warning signs of a heart attack most women are missing

We can blame it on everything we've seen on TV, but as women, most of us make the mistake of assuming that heart attacks only happen to men. But you might be shocked to learn that heart disease remains the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S.

According to the CDC, heart disease fatalities affect men and women equally. And even worse, almost two-thirds of the women who die suddenly from heart disease don't experience any previous symptoms. This "silent killer" is responsible for roughly one in four female deaths.

According to Dr. William Daniel, leading cardiologist and chief medical officer of software provider Emerge Clinical Solutions, heart disease is even more dangerous to women because symptoms of a heart attack are often different for women than men. Worse, most women don’t know the symptoms or attribute warning signs to stress or general fatigue. Knowing the signs of an attack, says Dr. Daniel, is the first major step toward preventing heart attacks from being America’s No. 1 killer in women.

Chest pain may seem like an obvious symptom of heart attack, but in reality symptoms are much more subtle and easy to ignore. We’ve all seen Hollywood heart attacks involving dramatic chest-clutching and sudden collapse, but for women, symptoms can be anything from discomfort that feels like bad indigestion to pain in the arm to breathlessness. Before you learn about the symptoms, it’s important to erase assumptions that a heart attack is always a chest-pounding, keeling-over movie melodrama.

Everyone feels a little tired now and then. But even though we learn to write off fatigue as a sign of not sleeping enough, fighting a cold, overexertion or a reaction to a new medicine, feeling drowsy nonstop could mean something bigger. Unusual or extreme fatigue shouldn’t be ignored, says Dr. Daniel. It may be an early warning sign of heart disease or an impending heart attack. One recent study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that more than 70 percent of women surveyed experienced marked fatigue in the days or weeks prior to their heart attacks.

Everyone experiences problems sleeping now and then because of stress, but chronic trouble sleeping might be caused by more than everyday exertion. If you’ve noticed unusual or prolonged disturbances in your regular sleep patterns, it’s smart to visit your doctor. The NIH study showed almost half of women who recently had a heart attack had sleep disturbances or unexplained insomnia in the days or weeks before the attack.

Some women may take on a gray pallor before or while having a heart attack. If your complexion is suddenly dull, call a doctor before you dial the esthetician. Cold and clammy skin or appearing severely ill can be another sign.

We’ve all been through the flu, but many women write off heart attacks as just that. Women may experience shortness of breath for no obvious reason, unusual upper-back pressure, dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting or fainting.

I believe it must really weaken your immune system in order for this to happen.

The first week was great. I could think clearer. Tasks and university work began to become easier to do due to being able to think more in depth and sequentially.

I may have to redo my units but if I am able to think as clear as the first week I am willing to make that sacrifice.

Does anyone who has gone cold turkey after long periods on Lexapro as to how long the withdrawals symptoms last?

i too am weened off lexapro.. this is my 5th day off of my 10mg of 8 months not long i know.

but i don't want to be on these any more as me and my partner are trying to conceive i think this med is blocking it and keeping is from conceiving so if we get what we want at the end its the only thing giving me hope from these horrendous side effects.

I really hope i can push from it but all people blog about is how bad the side effects are and the beginning stage. what about after the withdrawals.. is there hope?

my symptoms are feeling faint light headed migraine sweats shivers and shaking cant concentrate and patchy skin if this is it then fine i can get over this.. but how long will it last? also i am extremely tired won't stop sleeping and signed off from work due to nearly collapsing..:(.

Hey I have only been on for 9 months at 10 mg and I dosed myself down to 5mg for the past 3 days. I am experiencing pain in my neck but nothing else anyone has been talking about. Did you have any physical pain?

Just wondering if your neck pain went away? I was only on 10mg of lexapro for 7 weeks, and now have neck and shoulder stiffness with being on this drug and coming off of it.

To Denice and others with neck pain.

I am so happy someone finally mentioned the neck pain! I am being weaned off Lexapro, too. I also have fibromyalgia.. I always thought the Lexapro helped me control my fibro pain as much as helped with depression. As I am discontining the Lexapro, my fibro pain has increased. BUT now I also have a severe "pins and needles" neck pain, almost like a herniated disc. Is this the type pain you are speaking of?

    Help get the message out

    I have expanded the section on aspartame withdrawal here, mainly because of your feedback (see the responses below). Many people have told me that even after realizing just how bad aspartame is, they just cannot stop using it. When they try to stop, they get that “need to have it” feeling. They also experience classic withdrawal symptoms such as headache, anger, or anxiety until they get the next hit.

    Excitotoxins and your brain

    All the reasons that cause this addiction seem to be unclear. We know that aspartame breaks down to a highly absorbable form of methanol in the liver, which impairs dopamine receptors witch decreases serotonin. This causes an addiction similar to alcoholism which also leads to depression and mood disorders. Some drinks such as Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi contain caffeine as well, and seem even harder to quit (Diet Coke seems to be the clear “addiction” winner).

    Aspartame (like MSG) is an excitotoxin. An excitotoxin has effects similar to the way the word sounds. It is a toxin that excites brain cells to a much higher level. During this time you will heightened clarity and sharper cognition. After this brief “rush” it actually kills the cells. This is believed to be the cause of many brain disorders from cancer and stroke, to multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

    Check out this reader response I have dubbed: Aspartame Poisoning. Read for yourself the unbelievable damage she claims is caused by years of high consumption of Diet Coke and Diet Dr Pepper. There are also many more responses below. This is a much more serious problem than most of us think.

    Please let me know if YOU are addicted to aspartame or have aspartame withdrawal. Please also list your symptoms. I would like to help others break the habit.
    Please, please, please, help me, help others on this!

    Note : Due to popular demand (and my love for the products), I have added the Internal Cleansing products below. This are THE BEST ones I could find. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments on them.

    Stevia: There is some controversy over using Stevia. I am a BIG FAN (see Omica Organics to the right of this page). That said, I mix my Stevia with 1/2 Raw Honey or Grade B Maple Syrup. It just “feels right”. Try it, and let me know what you think. Remember, TRUVIA IS NOT STEVIA! It is made by Coka-cola and Cargil (yes, poisoned again).

    Hi I decided to give up coke zero last week as I was spending so much money on it. I would usually drink about 2-3 litres a day and on the weekends too many to count. I’m 41 and have been a Diet/coke zero drinker for about 20 years. Well it is day 8 and I feel great. On the second day of detox I had such a bad headache that I couldn’t go to work and had this ringing in my ears. I have also noticed that I am not eating anything sweet like chocolate or cake and can’t believe that I am writing this, but I don’t want any! People have noticed that I have lost weight (around the tummy). For people that are finding it hard, keep going you will find it easier and you will feel better. So glad i found this site.

    Well done you. Thinking about it, I’d have chocolate every day. Never really had a sweet tooth but don’t even want chocolate now. Keep at it xxxx

    35 yr old female. Consumed 5 to 6 packets of crystal light a day for approximately the last 10 years of my life (major addiction). I don’t like water, so I flavored all my water. I decided to get healthy. I cut sugar, processed foods of all kinds, caffeine, milk, bread (anything that could be converted to sugar), HOWEVER…I did not cut my artificially sweetened drink packets. They are zero calories, zero sugar, zero carbs…so what’s the big deal? I held onto that one addiction. The one thing I didn’t wanna deprive myself of.

    So I started reading articles about how “artificial sweeteners make you fat”. How could this be? Long story short, I called a nutrition expert and had the whole thing explained to me. So I cut my drink packets cold turkey. I can tell you this! Of all the withdrawal symptoms I’ve gone through on this journey (be it sugar, caffeine, whatever. ) Aspartame takes the cake. Immediately within hours of not getting up and drinking my morning dose, the headache set it. By about 3pm I was experiencing the WORST headache I’ve ever had in my life. Felt as if my brain was swelling and pressing against every part of my skull. My muscles went tight. My knees went stiff and joints ached that haven’t ever ached. I was sweating on and off throughout the day. Literally bed ridden and useless. Felt almost like a bad flu. I slept all day trying to sleep off the headache. Day 2, tried to play in a softball game, felt extremely weak, sweaty, jittery, foggy, elbows and knees hurt…head still hurting. No appetite, angry and moody as hell. I shouldn’t have ever gone.

    So today is my day 3 without aspartame. MY HEAD STILL HURTS! My brain feels like a bruise. I know I’m only one diet drink away from feeling better, but I’m not gonna do it. F you aspartame!

    I add Truly Natural Vitamin C from Healthforce to my water now. Every bit as good as Crystal Light IMO and super great for you. Hope that helps,

    Hi Leslie, Hope you can hang in. It. Ignatian take 4 to 6 weeks, but know that your body has done all it,can do and is mending. It just hurts to get better.

    Well done Lesley. The headaches will get better. I’m so conscious of buying bottled drinks without inspecting the additives now but that’s also become second nature. Weirdest thing is going into a pub and not asking for Bacardi and diet coke. For years I gave my kids diet coke as it was ‘better’ than fat coke cos it had no calories. I used to moan like mad if they drank fat coke. Now I’m asking for it too. Good luck with your ongoing battle 🙂 Love and hugs xx

    The person who wishes to have a new sober life can achieve that goal at any one of some 45 Narconon centers around the world. After withdrawal, the Narconon program guides each person through an intensive detoxification phase called New Life Detoxification. Through running to get the blood circulating, followed by time in a dry-heat sauna to sweat out the drugs, and good nutirition and adequate sleep, drug residues flush out of the fatty tissues of the body. As traces of drug use are eliminated, participants report that they experience return of alertness and reduction or elimination of cravings for drugs.

    As the cravings depart, a person begins to think more clearly. This means that they can begin to address the damage they have done to themselves with their drug abuse. One loses personal integrity and feels guilt over the harm done to loved ones. The ability to say no to drugs is often gone and there are troublesome people in one’s past who could make more trouble in the future. To stay sober, it is necessary to recover one’s self-respect and learn the skills needed to make the correct decision in each situation one encounters.

    The later phases of the Narconon program address these necessary skills and recoveries. The Narconon program has no set time limit, but usually takes 8-10 weeks. Each person progresses at their own rate. The program takes as long as necessary for the individual to become free of drugs, discover for themselves why they turned to drugs in the first place, and to learn life skills that empower them to live drug-free. The goal of the program is an individual free of drugs and the desire to take them and living a productive and happy life as a contributing member of society.

    Intestinal Parasites Symptoms
    The Early Warning Signals

    Common Intestinal Parasites Symptoms can be recognized as early warning signs that you've got unwanted visitors. Pay attention to your body when it is sounding out the alarm.

    The funny thing about parasites is that they are sneaky. I don't suppose they have a brain that literally plots against us, but they are very clever at mimicking other ailments and are able to go undetected by doctors for many years.

    That is one of the reasons that I adopted the practice of cleansing my system on a regular basis to insure that no little microscopic creepy crawlies are able to take up permanent residence in my digestive system.

    By keeping my colon healthy, I am able to enjoy a stronger immune system that is more prepared to fight off any visiting bacteria that it encounters.

    An intestinal parasite may live in your body without you really knowing about it for several years.

    You may not experience any symptoms, or even dismiss them as "just getting older" or "having a hard day."

    Some of the most common symptoms of parasitic infection are.

    • watery diarrhea
    • intestinal cramping
    • fever
    • fatigue
    • gas
    • bloating
    • bad breath
    • constipation

    There are many different flu viruses. Each year, a new flu vaccine is developed. It is designed to fight 4 flu viruses that scientists expect to be most common that year. This yearly vaccine is also called the "seasonal flu vaccine" or the "annual flu vaccine." "Seasonal" doesn't mean you need to get a flu vaccine every spring, summer, fall, and winter. You only need it once a year.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend the nasal spray this flu season. Studies found the nasal spray offered little or no protection for children ages 2 through 17 last flu season.

    The flu vaccine works most of the time. Each year's flu vaccine fights the 4 most common flu viruses for that year. If they come in contact with a different flu virus, they could still get the flu. But getting the flu vaccine is always better than not getting it.

    The inactive flu viruses in the vaccine trick the body into thinking it is being infected, so the body builds immunity against the flu. Then, if a real flu virus tries to infect that person, their body is ready to fight against it.

    Can you still get the flu after you get a flu shot?

    Yes, but even if you get the flu, the vaccine can help lessen the symptoms. The flu vaccine takes about two weeks to work.

    No, a flu shot cannot cause flu illness.

    Someone I know didn't feel well after getting the flu vaccine. Why?

    Flu vaccines have been given since the 1940's, hundreds of millions of times. Almost all people who get one have no serious problems. Sometimes people get sore at the spot where they get a vaccine. Very rarely, some people get a fever, pain or weakness after getting the flu shot. In both cases, this usually goes away in a day or two.

    A vaccine, like any medicine, may cause serious allergic reactions in very rare cases. Get medical help right away if hoarseness or wheezing, hives, paleness, weakness, a fast heartbeat, or dizziness occur after getting the shot. Also, about 1 person in a million can get an illness called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) following the flu vaccine.

    It is a contagious and infectious condition which often manifests itself as major pandemics, which may occur in any season interspersed with seasonal epidemics of varying severity.

    Influenza is more prominent during the winter season. In winter, the immune system of the body is weak. As people usually stay indoors and are in close proximity to each other, it spreads quickly during winter.

    Prognosis of Influenza

    The prognosis of Influenza is more severe and lasts longer than ‘common cold’. Recovery period of flu is about one to two weeks. The person remains contagious for about six days from the date of infection.

    3) Type C flu which causes mild respiratory infections. virus C. The symptoms of Type C influenza infection resembles the symptoms of common cold and is not pandemic.This flu infects only humans.

Anxiety, overwork, Lack of exercise and faulty lifestyle also provide grounds for influenza infection. The flu virus spreads easily through the saliva droplets released in the air due to sneezing and coughing of the person infected by flu and can infect and weak person quickly.

    The birth of influenza virus is closely associated with birds(Avian flu) and other animals (e.g swine flu). Thus Influenza pandemics often originate in places where human beings live in close proximity of animals.
