  • 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.

  • High potassium blood levels caused by vitamin d3
    I have Parkinson's and fell and broke my hip. Otherwise I have good health. While checking my blood, the doctor was extremely concerned that my potassium levels were above 5.0 and wanted to take rather drastic measures to correct it. Since I have no other symptoms, I was resistant. In the meantime, I thought I saw a study that said vitamin D supplementation could cause a false positive reading on potassium. I was taking 5000 units of D a day for over a year. I stopped taking it while I was in the hospital and the blood level potassium began to normalize.

    I need the vitamin D and need to find out if it is truly detrimental or an illusion .
  • Tecfidera and psychosis
    When our 31 year old daughter with Multiple Sclerosis started the 120 mg of Tecfidera, we noticed that she started becoming chatty-- talking more that usual. After a week on the lower 120 mg, she started on the higher 240 mg dosage. Her chatter increased significantly. By the second day on the higher dosage of Tecfidera, she was becoming completely out of control with excessive talking. She could not stop. We ended the Tecfidera 240 mg after two days and did not go back to the lower dosage. Her ability to sleep was diminishing on the lower dosage. By the time she reached the normal 240 mg, she stopped sleeping altogether. Even with taking 2 Tylenol PM, it didn't phase her. She could not sleep. We informed her neurologist and he prescribed the sleep aid Clonazepam 0.25 mg. Taking two tablets allowed her to sleep 7 hours--- but then she became completely Manic showing all the symptoms of Psychosis. There is no previous Bi-Polar/Manic in her history or in her family's history. Two days off the Tecifidera, she has become argumentative and combative. She is angry and impatient. This behavior is completely opposite of her normal behavior. The has always been one of the sweetest people on the planet. Any suggestions to help her get off this Psychosis episode??

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I am waiting for my 2nd revision (3rd attempt) to a supposed routine hip replacement on a 40 year old woman. We found out after the second attempt that as they put it "my bones were just too soft to hold the screws in place, even though I was keeping correct alignment, my bones were just soft." I said like osteoporosis???! They said no, no! Just. soft, like wet wood, from severe arthritis. You think someone would check this before surgery? Right? I don't know.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I have a history of pituitary brain tumors (one as an infant, surgically removed and treated with chemo, and one at the age of 7 treated through radiation). I had another brain tumor (miningeoma behind the eye nerves) that has led to these latest bouts of headaches and my rethinking of my health. I have always struggled with weight and am on every hormone replacement due to the effect on my pituitary. I am currently on a mostly vegan diet, which I have generally enjoyed but am starting to reevaluate.
