Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I have had the history of seizures, kidney stones, high blood pressure and migraine headaches. i am soon going back to school and need something to help with memory . what is best to help in this way
Not sure what I am suppose to write here. My mind is never clear and it feels as if there is swelling that keeps me from wanting to learn or work. Taking IBprofen helps take some of the swelling away but not all.
- Why when i have a migraine i feel the need to eat more and more? (1 answer)
Can someone please help me why when I get a migraine I have the need for excessive eating? I get the feeling that if I eat more I will feel better. I am now 43 years old woman and my migraines the last three years get worse and worse. Both more intense and more often ( like twice or even three times a week). I am on Effexor that is treating depression 75mg per day. Can someone advise me what can I do? I feel so much helpless and frustrated as my quality of life has deterioted so much.
- Is it my thyroid or am i mentally ill? diagnosed w/ hashimoto's thyroiditis but untreated - chronic pain unmanaged also (2 answers)
I moved to OR from HI and brought all my records, signed releases, and had many diagnoses, all but the thyroid, was being treated and long-term. I also took Oxycontin & Oxycodone for severe chronic pain from bilateral SI joint fusion (right screw protrudes & leg also becomes numb and weak with activity) & lumbar and cervical degeneration & facet arthropathy. I had volunteered reducing dosage as I'm always trying to reduce Rx intake to alleviate side effects (I am tiny, even for a youth & adult dosages seem to drug me). Next month, it was known that I could not function well because pain was not managed, but needed to resolve it in OR, as moving. OR Drs. refused to return me to higher dosage (taking minimalist Oxycontin 10 mg CR & Oxycodone/Acet 5mg). After being unable to get up to go to bathroom, walk, contacted adult services to see about in home services & possible foster care placement for young son since I was losing independence & failing in general health & cognitive functioning. I was forced to take bottles of OTC Tylenol to function, with Dr's knowledge, & knowing I had past lesions on liver to follow. Several months later had follow up liver ultrasound, & new small lesions found on liver. After emailing dr about from DHS questioning failure to manage my pain vs. conditions that were disabiling, 6 months later, dr told me I was experiencing withdrawals every morning & finally agreed to increase Oxycontin to 15 mg, which has enabled me to tolerate the pain & function. I have been treated as a drug-seeking patient since attempting to transfer my care.
I have multiple autoimmune conditions, most of which I no longer treat with Rx as I have been overmedicated & side effects are too numerous. So I actually am opposite in many ways. I stopped Lyrica, Silenor (sleep), Elmiron, Bentyl, Dexilant. Stress affects me seriously since I had a TBI and experience anxiety stress disorder, which seems to contribute to auto immune responses. But still knew triggers & familiar with self - this thyroid diagnosis & symptoms experienced new & too destabilizing to live.
Diagnosed w/ Hashimoto's thyroiditis after 1/2 thyroid removed Nov 2011; my antibodies are unbelievably high. I declined in thinking, memory, anxiety-unable to think/track, losing most,getting lost driving, sleep very dysfunctional, too emotional, crying easily & often (unusual for me). I feared losing ability to live independently. My maintenance Rx (Silenor, Lyrica) seemed to drug me. I tried to explain to drs. that I needed thyroid replacement hormones that I never had these problems before.
They referred me to a psychiatrist for medicine management consultation, who gave me mental health diagnoses (histrionic personality disorder, somatoform (hypochondria) that discredited me & ruined my medical records for future validity. Is it thyroid symptoms? Was unmanaged pain contributing? Too much Tylenol? What does a dysfunctional thyroid do to a person? How do I get my medical record addressed to reflect accuracy?
- Will using butalbital 6-7 times a month for migraines result in dependency?
I experience migraines 6-7 times a month and have found butalbital/aspirin/caffeine to be very effective in managing pain. Does anyone know if this rate of usage can cause dependency? I have been taking butalbital since 2007. My migraines are very unpredictable--occasionally I will go 2-3 weeks without one, other times I will have 2-3 in a week. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!
- I developed excessive saliva production after starting ropinerole (requip) for plmd. sleep was impossible due to frequent swallowing. has anyone else experienced similar symptoms? (1 answer)
The first 5 drugs above on my list that I tried for PLMD, I no longer use. I took ropinerole (Requip) for about 2 weeks when I noticed that I was producing more saliva and was swallowing a lot. It didn't really bother me too much, because the other drugs that I take give me a dry mouth. When I went to bed, trying to get to sleep was impossible, I had to swallow every 10 – 15 seconds all night long. My doctor investigated and found that only 1% of patients develop this symptom, lucky me. I discontinued using it. The symptom went away, and then came back even after I had stopped taking the drug for over 1 month. Has anyone else experienced this over-production of saliva during and/or after discontinuing ropinerole (Requip)? And if so, how long did it last and what can be done about it? It is disturbing my sleep so much that it of itself has become a sleep disorder. Any suggestions?

- Imetrix verses butalb/acet/caffeine
I have taken both Imitrex and Butalb/acet/caffeine and I have to say that Imitrex works far better than the other one! The substitute I was given for Imitrex doesn't even touch my migraine pain.
- Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
- Review: could lyrica cause intracranial pressure increased?
One dose (75mg) caused severe head pain (increased intracranial pressure) and nausea.
- Bad side effect of melatonin/imitrex use together
I have taken melatonin for insomnia I've been experiencing recently (not a chronic condition). I haven't had any problems or interactions with my other regular medications while using the melatonin, other than drowsiness in the morning. Last night I had a migraine at bedtime, so took 50 mg. of imitrex, my usual dose for one. Since I haven't had one during the period I've been taking the melatonin I feel fairly confident in assuming that my symptoms were a result of the combination.
I was awoken--thank god!--by choking on my own saliva and almost vomiting. I was able to go back to sleep--lying on my side to avoid aspirating anything--and was awoken again several hours later while I was wetting the bed!!! Incontinence has never been an issue for me (well, not since I was 3, I imagine) and I was really shocked. Although I immediately got up to clean the bed, I was so sleepy that I got back in (on the dry side :) and slept for another 4 hours.
Although, as I mentioned, I think it's likely that the problem was the result of an interaction with the Imitrex, which has a soporific effect, I'll stop using the melatonin to be safe!
- My reaction to talking sumatriptan for the first time.
after 10 minutes of taking the sumatriptan tablet i got all of the symptoms i stated and from those i developed a rare movement disorder called 'Dystonia' that has affected my right foot making me unable to walk and my right hand making me unable to write.
