My Daughter just called. She is in the hosptial in isolation with MRSA. She has been having something like hallucinations since the boils started under her arm. She would close her eyes for a minute and find herself in another setting and start talking to her children that were not there.
Has anyone ever heard of this??
Thanks

Whilst in the arms of Morpheus, amongst other adventures, my son reported flying on a large stringless kite over our garden and surrounding area to visit his friends. He reports swooping and diving in the breeze and making use of the thermals. It was all extremely vivid and very real to him. In reality, he did not see his friends for almost three months. Sometimes we would visit and he would begin a conversation which eventually became clear was drug-induced with no basis in fact whatsoever.

Dear Pamela
There are many drugs that cause hallucinations including some antibiotics that are used to treat MRSA and opiates used to relieve pain. I raised this issue when my mum was being treated as I was not sure whether it was the spiking temperatures when the infection caused her fever and deleriousness. It was frightening to witness. After mum had gone through the delerious stage she was still hallucinating.

She was on such a cocktail of drugs that we were informed that was why she was hallucinating. She kept seeing a lady stood opposite her bed with a baby going into the bathroom - even though this was a hallucination mum was concerned about someone bringing a baby into such a dirty environment!

No mention of the hallucinations or her delerious state was ever made on the medical records by any of the medics attending her, which I believe is poor practice on the part of the hospital, they should record these details as it is indicative of how well a patient is responding to treatment or the drug therapy's suitability for the patient.

Discuss your daughter's hallucinations with the team looking after her and ask them what treatment they are going to give her.

I hope she is better soon. Visit our website at http://www.mrsaactionuk.net for information about MRSA.

My daughter had MRSA four years ago when she was three. Hooked up to IVs, she climbed up on a hospital chair. I told her to get down. She spoke and said, "My name is Jean Claude, and I won't listen to you unless you call me by my God given name." My mother and I were very upset, and I had to call her Jean Claude to get her down. Maybe it was a hallucination from morphene. I was afraid she was passing away. The thing that bothered me was that she even sounded like an older man. It wasn't even her standing there. I'll never forget it. She still screams when they call her name in the local doctor's office. People wonder why, but I know how she suffered

My sons dad was brought to our local hosp. here in granite city ill. he was suffaring from mrsa hallucenations instead the drs. gave him a sedative and knocked him out for 4 hrs. instead of doing a drug test they just knocked him out...so he woke up later stll hallucenating and staff was trying to move him into psychiatric wing when he was seeing things. So the hosp security staff decided to pin him down and proceed to suffocate and kill him.......Anthony Todd Burkey 12-2-11 2 drs. **2 drs were fired, the entire security, and Todds toxicology came back clean and the cororner ruled asphixiation as cause of death. 3 guards are charged with manslaughter and a big lawsuit is in works. no matter the money our son will receive no amount will bring back his Dad. warning alert imediately if this happens to someone else, insist the hosp does a drug test so they will know its not drugs but infection

I found this page after numerous
falls,embarrassing moments and worried about my
crazy actions. I thank all of you for helping put my
mind at ease but now I wonder am I safe alone. I
was reminded again today when I woke how I
fought the closer door and broke the door. I feel the
large lump on my forehead . My elbow is scrapped
and dry from falling half way down the carpetd
stairs. Oh my new name is Chief dumb dumb after I
was found dancing in a circle smacking myself and
moaning Indian chants. Where the heck did that
come from? I wake up repeatedly dressed and then
undressed. Have open the front door naked.
Thankful I didn't get past the security lock. Why
must we suffer? Is it not bad enough all the puss
filled boils. And sweat baths? Please if you read
this know you are not alone. I feel for all the
unwanted pain we all go through.

Can these hallucinations persist even after one's blood test no longer shows the
presence of MRSA? My SIL didn't start exhibiting psych symptoms til after she
was almost free of infection. She's in bad mental shape.

Happened upon this page because I
presently have mild hallucinations. I'm
in a state where I can recognize them so
I'm not overly concerned but clearly
there's a problem. It's been 3 years
since I had mersa, and clearly I have some
issue in my GI tract some form of
dysbiosis causing a host of symptoms. I
can't help but think that my immune system
is trying to combat some remnants of
mersa. Doctors have been no help so I'm
trying to investigate this on my own
ordering my own lab as well.
