I can answer this to some degree from personal experience. *ICK*

About a year ago, I went to the doctor, because I was having really weird pains when I move my neck. I was getting tinglely feelings in my legs everytime I put my head down (like touching my chin to my chest). I have to get an MRI done, had to go on Neurontin for about 2 weeks, and it went away.

I can also give myself migranes, I'm always tired, and fighting sleep during the day. It's tough. It DOES take some time to fight through.

First of all, I would research at They have some of the BEST information out there I can find. Check out what meds your friend is taking, and be sure there are no major side effects that could cause this.

Also, have you friend look into support groups, even if they are online. There are some really good bulletin boards where she can share her story, and, if she wants to, let her know about here!

I think we had a couple of people who suffer (or have suffered from )bipolar post before. I'm not well versed on the bipolar aspects of depression, so I'll leave that to someone else to discuss that side!

Good luck with your research. Support your friend, and if you have questions, come back!
