Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Requip cause dysphagia
an increase caused me not to be able to swallow at all
- Does anyone experience heart palpitations causedby their acid reflux ?
I have had acid reflux/Gerd for 4 years + Was not believed that symptoms were real for a while as had no heartburn and a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia which even now some medics think is imaginary...it's NOT!!! Following a demeester score of 45 ( very high confirmation of acid reflux) and discovery of a large hiatal hernia, ( a classic physical cause of acid reflux) I had hernia repair operation and LINX anti reflux surgery. Throughout the four years a major symptom of my acid reflux were heart palpatations. They started at the same time I started with reflux and cleared up after the surgery. I have been reflux free palpitation free and antacid free for four months. then I was put on Gabapentin for back spasm and the reflux returned along with the palpitations. Medics keep insisting this is just anxiety yet eat a food that gives me reflux also starts the palps which is the indicator of the reflux as I do not have heartburn. Comes on when relaxing and eating watching tv ( no anxiety present) and when I am sleeping peacefully ( no anxiety present) my heart wakes me up and fires off into tachycardia. Recently a doctor has said it is now known that acid reflux irritates the nerves in the solar plexus area and that triggers the palps. Anyone else experienced this? Are there any studies on it at all? Thanks all.
- Bentyl is making my right upper abdomen more painful, but all gallbladder tests are normal. any ideas?
I was prescribed Bentyl because my gallbladder US, CT, and HIDA were all normal. Strangely, the Bentyl made the pain worse. I don't know why. I don't know if I should continue using it or not.
- Has anyone had lasting anxiety from taking linzess?
Felt slight edginess and nervousness occurred while taking Linzess for 3 weeks (145mcg). I stopped taking it a month ago due this side effect, but upon discontinuation, the slight edginess turned into severe anxiety which is now causing high blood pressure.
Has anyone experienced this?
- Does zoloft cause ringing in the ears, like tinnitus? i've been on it for a month and noticed the ringing in the ears about a week ago, and it's just constant ringing and it's driving me insane. (1 answer)
I've been on most of the medications for more than a year and it hasn't been that bad getting used to them. But I've been on Zoloft and ambien for about a month now, and I've been noticing a lot of side effects. The one I just recently noticed and that has been driving me completely insane, is the ringing in the ears. It's been about a week now and I just don't know what to do anymore. If it is the Zoloft then I can finally just stop taking it and make this stop. If anyone has an answer or knows what to do, PLEASE help. I'm at my wits end.

Was given Propofol while having Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. Severe headache in evening and following day.
- Atrial fib and ibs, is there a connection?
I felt wonderful, after a good night sleep and a nice breakfast. Took my heart medicine. Took off for an hour shopping and the A-Fib began with a vengeance and lasted five hours.
During the time, interestingly, I had continuous IBS. If I had not used butter (an IBS trigger) on my toast that morning, would have had an episode at all? I wonder if there isn't a connection, one that I might be able to control to some extent. This is worth trying!
- How an integrative wellness approach cured me of insomnia, ibs, and more (1 response)
For 10+ years, I suffered with insomnia and a host of other problems including intestinal distress, headaches, psoriasis, anxiety, cognitive issues, hypothyroid, chronic itching, restless leg, etc. Traditional medicine, aka taking drugs, was not working to heal me. Since childhood, I’ve had IBS, headaches, and upper respiratory problems. Then, in my early twenties, after childbirth, I begin to suffer with panic attacks. I managed to get the panic attacks under control, but the insomnia never went away. I took both Ambien and Clonazepam at different times in my life. When I expressed my concern over taking these meds, my doctor reassured me and told me that some people just have to take sleeping meds for their entire life. I read literature on insomnia and tried most everything – no late night eating, no TV or electronics before bed, sleep in a cool room with complete darkness, meditate, sleep labs, etc. etc. etc. Even with the sleeping meds, I never got restful sleep. Most days, I felt like it was all I could do just to get by. For at least the first half of each day, I felt that I was in dazed stupor until the meds in me would start to wear off. I was first on Clonazepam and then switched to Ambien. When I made the switch, I suffered through withdrawal for about a week. It was horrible -- no sleep, hallucinations, etc. For years, I had silently suffered – my family, friends, and colleagues having no idea to what extent. I felt that mentally, cognitively, and physically I was slowly slipping away. My love for my child and my desire to nurture and provide for him is what kept me going. Without this purpose in my life, I fear that I might have given up somewhere along the way.
Finally, a few years ago, I went to see an integrative medicine doctor. After years of being in the darkness, I am finally living again. My IM doctor put me on natural supplements, a natural thyroid replacement, and, most importantly, tested me for food allergies/sensitivities. My test results yielded that I could not tolerate wheat, gluten, yeast, and dairy. I took these results seriously and I completely eliminated these things from my diet. After two weeks of adhering to my new diet, I already felt better. In fact, I felt so much better, that, one evening, I decided not to take my Ambien. I have not taken it or any sleep or anxiety medicine since. My doctor was as surprised as I was and did not really anticipate that the diet alone would cure my insomnia. In fact, he had told me that, since I had been taking sleeping meds for so long, eliminating them completely would be a long process that we would have to work through together. Nearly all of the symptoms I listed have disappeared. I continue to take my natural thyroid replacement and the supplements my doctor suggested. I have the occasional migraine and a few patches of psoriasis -- but nothing like the severity I had before. I am 47 now and I am on a journey of healthy transformation. I eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and truly feel healthy, younger, and physically stronger than I have in 15 and maybe 20 years. Jokingly, my husband used to refer to me as "fragile." Well, not anymore. In fact, he has told me that my body seems like a completely different one. He has had a front-row seat to my transformation and he is as much "in awe" of the changes in me as I am in myself.
Ten years ago, I was not optimist about my future. Today, I am full of hope, wonder, energy, and excitement. I believe we have the ability to heal ourselves, but we must be diligent in our pursuit of knowledge, persistent and strong in our will to make lifestyle changes, and patient that results will come as long as we are doing all the right things. By the way, giving up foods I had eaten my entire life was not difficult at all once I did it long enough to realize the tremendous benefits of not eating them.
- Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
I have a relatively weak erection (estimate 50-60% of maximum erection potential) and tend to have a weak orgasm with only a moderate amount of ejaculate (even after 2-4 weeks of abstinence). I am in excellent cardiovascular health exercising 3-4 days a week on an elliptical, achieving sustained exercise heart rate in 70%-90% of maximum range. My resting heart rate is 50-55 beats per minute, my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are well controlled with exercise and zocor. My blood pressure is well controlled by Hyzaar 100/25. I have never tried medications such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra for this problem. Perhaps they would help, but I feel the main reasons for my problems are my age (64) and the side effects of the combinations of drugs I take. Also, last year I had my testosterone level checked it was 399 (normal range 400-1200).Perhaps this is also part of my problem?? Thank you for any advice.
From this study (9 months ago):
I receive enough benefit from taking these medications, with varying results depending on circumstances to justify their continued use.
From this study (10 months ago):
I began taking these two meds March 20th, and have been in extreme pain (stomach) since day one. I am trying to find the reason behind it. I have diverticuli, ileitis, chronic gastritis. I have severe diarrhea.
