  • Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
    I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
    I am desperate for some relief!
    Thanks
  • Does neurontin cause arthritis. after taking it for 3 months, i started ints.
    After having sciatic pain for almost a year, a doctor prescribed Neurontin. I took it for 3 months until I started getting severe joint pain. I weened myself off of it a month ago and am still having severe joint pain. There has not been any other changes in my life except Neurontin. Does this go away eventually.
  • I have tried several meds for my rls. first i tried mirapex , then gabapentin and now on sinemet
    Have tried ropiranole type drugs, Mirapex, went to gabapentin, now on Sinemet Cr. Feeling depressed, gaining weight, and not getting relief thru the night. Take trazodone to finally get sleep. Worried about side effects of Sinemet CR 25/100 need to take 2 or 3 at night to get relief. Also taking iron supplement. Anybody else have suggestions?
  • Is trazodone as opposed to paxil better for menopause symptoms?
    Does Trazodone or Paxil offer better relief for menopause & insomnia? I am currently using Trazodone & am reluctant & frightened to switch to Paxil, which my current Dr. is prescribing. Please offer advice.
  • How difficult is it to stop taking klonopin? (5 answers)
    I am a 58 year old woman who has had panic attacks since I was 16 years old. I also suffer from major depression. I've recently heard that Klonopin (Clonazepam) can cause early dementia. I have taken this drug for 22 years and want to discontinue it. Is it difficult to stop taking this medication due to possibilities of seizures?

  • Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
    I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
    . Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
  • Cough and gabapentin
    Have chronic cough for 6 yr's at least.3 yr's ago it got bad enough to seek doc. Help. Took all the tests . Tried to tell me I had asthma,copd, ect. Put me on sprivia, symbicort, singular, helped a little for awhile. Long story short. Went to one doc. He asked me some questions about my cough. Figured out it usually started with a tickle on the left side of my throat. And he put me on gabapentin 300mg. 3 times Aday. Which is for nerve damage. It took about 7days to see some change. And about 35days To stop the chronic cough. I still cough once in awhile. But no chronic coughing. Now I am going to try and see if I can stop the other med,s one at a time and see what happens
  • Turmeric and atrial fabrillation
    I am a "health nut" who has always avoided any and all tobacco and alcohol, am on no medication, am on a reasonably purer diet (organic foods etc.,) and daily take and assortment of vitamins, minerals and a few herbs like garlic and saw palmetto. I had recently began taking therapeutic doses of Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties in both powered and capsule forms--(powdered form for approximately two to three weeks--one teaspoon twice daily; capsule form for approximately three or four days--one capsule twice daily.) On the day in question, I took one teaspoon of the powered form of turmeric with a late lunch and left off the capsule form. I jog/walk two or three miles intermittently and roughly twice a week. Into the second mile of a three mile jog/walk that night,I experienced an unusual weakness and fatigue, stopped after the second mile and pulse was over 200. I had sweated a lot and after resting a while, I walked the third mile back home and showered. I was unable to sleep. My heart was in atrial fibrillation which was diagnosed hours later at the local Medical Center ER. Heart rate was fluctuating in the 150-170 range and was brought down to 100-120 range with I.V. medication but stayed in that range. Exactly 11 hours after its beginning and with virtually no sleep for over 24 hours and after drinking only water but with very little food and no vitamin or Turmeric consumption, immediately after standing up for the third time in four or five hours to go to the bathroom, I suddenly converted back to a normal heart rate which is 60 to 70 beats a minute and was released from the medical center seven hours later. Plan to stop taking all forms of Turmeric.
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • Can't get to sleep, legs hurt or twitch. Once asleep I move all over the bed. I often sleep during the day for several hours with no sign of neuropathy, but often malaise. But as soon as I go to bed it all comes back.

    Blood sugar level is normal. I had an earlier bout of iron deficiency anemia that was cured with infusions about 6 months ago. But after that the neuropathy and insomnia started and grew stronger and stronger over time. I am mostly anxious and frustrated that I can't get to sleep, and that when I am awake, I have no drive or energy.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • 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.
