  • I am 39 years old. I was diagnosed with Attention ...

    I am 39 years old. I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder 4 months ago and prescribed Ritalin 15 mg 3 times a day, to be increased to 20 mg later on. I was taking 10 mg every 4 hours or so for most of these 4 months.

    For the last few weeks i have numbess in my limbs, especially in my left leg from the knee down. It was getting worse and worse, a few days ago I could not get off the floor. I can now but I walk a lot more slowly than before this started and I drag my feet when I walk. It is in my face too, it's difficult to move my lipts to speak, eat and drink.

    I am trying to stop taking Ritalin to see if it will help. I did not take any today, I had a mad craving for it right now but I think I am over the worst bit of the withdrawal. But the numbness is not going anywhere. I am just wondering - is it the Ritalin that is causing the symptoms? can it cause the numbness and other things? and if it does, is it permanent damage or will it go away? how long will it take?

    I am not sure if anyone is reading this, I had a quick look at other threads and there are no replies. If anyone is reading this, hit me up.

    I'm 69 years old. Six months ago, I had an EKG test that showed a normal heart. Then, I began taking Ritalin as a mood enhancer as prescribed by my psychiatrist. This week, I took another EKG, which shows that I have an enlarged atria. I repeated the test and got the same results.
