- Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (2 answers)
I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!
- 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.

- My finger tendons broke on prednisone
Twelve years ago I was put on prednisone for sudden hearing loss. The prednisone helped the hearing loss (for as long as I took the drug; hearing loss returned after I stopped the prednisone.) But I kept getting ruptured tendons in my fingers, which I had to splint to use. I couldn't figure out why in heck this was happening. My doctor(s) didn't have a clue. I suspected the ruptures might have to do with prednisone. Now I know they were caused by it. When I stopped the prednisone, the tendon-ruptures stopped, too. This should be Must Tell information for any doctor who prescribes this dangerous drug.

Prescribed Prednisone 20mg twice daily. Took for six weeks and developed weaken muscles and swollen face. Was hospitalized and informed I had severe Cushing's Syndrome.

Had to regain strength and learn to walk again with physical therapy. Left with foggy thinking, fatigue, muscle myopathy and peripheral neuropathy. Also developed osteopenia. Afterwards was placed on hydrocortisone and Lyrica for pain. Later found liver damage.
- 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.

From this study (4 years ago):
Polymyalgia rheumatica diagnosed 7 years ago ... Prednisone only benefit ... Blood pressure issue, atrial fibrillation, cholesterol issue, with extreme fatigue and almost chronic pain, which shifts from one location to another. Neither Savella or Lyrica effective. Multiple medications caused Barrett's Esophagus, which is being treated successfully, so far. What are the dangers of current medications? I am so sorry I have nothing positive to offer. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you
