No sure I spelled it right😁. I have suspected that my tortie girl has this for some time. Her very odd behavior is classic. She has many medical problems and is currently on steroids for ibd which is controlled. All her problems have made her impossible to get to the vet anymore. She is extremely aggressive if you look at her wrong. She explodes so she has no real diagnosis of hyperparathesia formally. I have tried felaway gabapentin and trazedone. They make her worse. The vet coming here is out of the question as she never appears for anyone but me and if I was to lock her up for the vet here she would lose her last place of security. I don’t know what to do at this point. She needs to be completely knocked out to get her there and they are so afraid of being sued they won’t let me give her knock out pills. I’m 73 and the only one who can even touch her. Any thoughts? It’s

Are you talking about hyperesthesia? What makes you think she has this? I've included an article link below that discusses this condition.

You might ask about a small dose of butorphanol and see if the vet would be willing to prescribe it. This med was given to Feeby (17+yo) just to settle her down for when she went through an ultrasound and had to have her belly shaved. It is a sedative only but was very effective and caused no after-effects. I have also included a link below that explains this sedative.

She has episodes of skin twitching on her back, she grooms like mad, runs around the house as if the devil is after her, shes freezes and stares at the ceiling or at invisible things and can be extremely aggresive. Thank you for the article and suggested med. I'll read it. Her vet knows what she is like and sometimes will prescribe w/o seeing her but I doubt he will here. She had a definitive diagnosis from a specialist for the IBD.
