  • Has anyone experienced muscle pain from taking biotin 5000 mcg? (1 answer)
    Was taking Biotin for about a month when I experienced severe pain in my elbow. About a week later, I experienced severe pain in my right shoulder and arm to where it was almost frozen.
  • Does reglan cause vitamin 12 deficiency
    Have been diagnosed with extreme vitamin B 12 deficiency. What could be the cause? Could medications like Reglan and vitamin d contribute???
  • Has anyone had negative experiences with simvastin or with omerprazole?
    I have been diagnosed as having diabetes but at this point I am not taking any meds for it, my numbers are excellent. I was not on a cholestral or blood pressure med until I was diagnosed with diabetes.
  • Has anyone been diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia while on prednisone for less than one month?
    I am an active 66 year old woman who has an ongoing 2nd metatarsal joint swelling with pain. An MRI showed no tears. A blood test ruled out gout, but showed an elevated rheumatoid factor. As a result, my primary care physician put me on a 15 day prednisone regime. I took 40 mg for 5 days, then reduced to 20 mg for 5 days, then down to 10mg that ended up being for one day only. On that 11th day of prednisone, I ended up in the emergency room with a very ugly EKG. I had a stress test with nuclear imaging, an echocardiogram, an angiogram- all of which were negative. I had several incidents of ventricular tachycardia during the 5 days I was hospitalized. I ended up with a subcutaneous implanted cardio defibrillator. Has anyone had a similar experience on prednizone?
  • Can curcumin c3 complex cause very dry mouth?
    I have been takingall the above drugs since being diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 1998-99. The only variation is prednisone which I take only when I have a flare. Itook my first Curcumin C3 Complex capsule 3 days ago. 500mg. I decided to start with one a day for awhile. After a few hours I had the dryestmouthever! Both days it has impimproved considerably by the end of the 24hours. A couple hours after takingit this morning mymouth is horribly dry again. It has to be the Curcumin since nothing else has changed for years. Anyone else with this problem? The reason I amtaking it is a couple of years ago my gastrodr wanted me to take it for my GERD but I didn't want to. But the other day I read that it helps with joint pain which I have badly so thought I'd give it a try for both reasons.

  • Symptoms started in 2008 shooting pain in right leg from lumbar area down to foot.
    Was diagnosed with 3 herniated discs. Pinching of sciatica nerve from disc herniation. Went to Physiotherapy for 4 months. Corrected 90% but left with right foot 2 middle toes nerve damage. 2010 all over body pain started. Could not sit or stand for long periods of time. Bouts of sciatica started again. Went for a 3rd MRI. Sent to neurosurgeon. Could not do anything. Sent to neurologist. Diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Taking oxyneo for pain, pregabalin & cymbalta for nerve pain. I'm able to live with the pain but I can't handle the side effects. I have started treatment with a naturopathic doctor to see if I can go off some of the pills like the pregabalin that is causing weight gain, extreme sweating and mood swings.
