Is it normal to have a head ache,
And feel "high" with bipolar 2?
I also have borderline personality
Disorder, anxiety disorder, depression,
Etc. just wondering if it's a symptom.
It won't go away and have had it for the
Past 4 weeks.

Need help.

I also have many intertwined disorders like the ones you have stated, and I do at times feel high, or "like i say clouded," maybe caused by meds but am going to the doctor to find out why this is happening. I really don't know if its normal, but I do also deal with feeling like this, and sometimes makes me feel sick, and wanting to black out.

I'm sorry your dealing with this to.
I went to the ER last night, waited 3
Hours and never was seen so I left.
I am going to talk to my therapist about it Wednesday.
And I see my psych next week. I don't know what
Causes these headaches to last so long.
And cause so much pain. I just staid in today, and
Relaxed. Seems to be a bit better. I don't sleep
Either. If I do it's only about 4 good hours.
Can you sleep?

I only sleep 4 hours solid. If that.
And that's with seroquel 300mg.
I'm consistantly exhausted.
I'm on other Meds but for other
Things. I don't think my lithium
Helps with sleep but I have to take it
At bed time?

I heard of people taking 600mg and the amount i take knocks me out every night. Kinda makes me groggy but strong coffee helps in the mornings.
It has worked well for the past two or so years.
