Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Has anyone taking eliquis suffered from itching? not rashes, jsut irritating itching?
Going crazy with itching since starting eilquis..Doctors insist that's not a side effect. I insist since it's happening to me, it IS, even if it was never documented when in trials. Since it' happening to me, a patient, than I consider it a side effect. Anyone else???
- Can urinary retention cause severe dizziness and lightheartedness?
I had a kidney infection for 1.5 months diagnosed in August this year it took 2 lots of antibiotics to kick it but now I am left with SEVERE urinary retention I had a cystoscopy which only lasted for 24 hours it was done when I was awake so I think that it wasn't very affective by the next morning I was again in agony with lower back pain and pain around my kidneys. I had to swap consultants I am seeing my new one tomorrow but now I am suffering with severe urinary retention I pass urine 1-2 times a day I try to go if my bladder feels full I can be sat on my toilet for 20 mins and its just a few drops so I get bad lower stomach pain too from the pressure as I cannot go properly. My consultant gave me Cefalexin but my GP was very wary giving it to me as I am only 24 years old and they don't usually give it to women.
Does urinary retention cause bad dizziness and how can I help the symptoms because the back and kidney pain along with the lower stomach pain keeps me up for most of the night I am getting about 4-5 hours sleep I work as a nanny so I am constantly feeling exhausted
- What are some known or reported side effects from a zantac overdose? especially long term side effects?
My son was born preterm weighing in at 5lbs. During his time in the NICU the doctors diagnosed him with acid reflux and started him on Ranitidine. One day prior to him leaving the NICU I was given a script to be filled for at home use. The dosage was suppose to be .375ml but instead the pharmacy filled it for 3.75ml (ten times the amount). This medication was suppose to be given two times a day. After 4 days of being given the higher dosage I noticed a huge difference in my son's behavior. His bowel movements became for frequent (about every 30 minutes), he wasn't as alert (he had this blank stare), and he began to vomit very often. He also had blood in his stool. He was readmitted into ICU after we found the mistake with the dosage and his stomach was pumped and IV's were inserted. He was monitored for 3 days and then released. The problem I have now is that no one has dealt with this kind of overdose and has no information for me to look for as far as long term side effects go.
- Does methadone worsen eczema?
I abused opiates more specifically heroin for over a year... Agee months ago I stopped and started taking methadone. I have eczema on my hands which I developed during that time...it is severe now... Is it possible that methadone is making it worse ?? Also is there anyway the use of opiates caused the eczema in the first place???
- How to make baby stop scratching his face and head
Baby boy almost 4 months old. About 1 mouth ago developed rash and rough skin on the face, Dr. prescribed cortisone 1%. Also tried cataphil moisturizer and california baby. The condition has been on and off. The face now can be seen cleaned of rash except in lower chins and around the ears, but the area where the hair grows starts to have lots of scalp. Skin of the face also becomes rough and flaky, not very serious though. Baby scratches his eyes, face, ears, and heads, and often leaves cuts. Now we put socks on his hands but this is not a solution. What to do? Will it go away by itself? First time parents, thanks.

- Sepsis hallucinations misdiagnosed
I was admitted to the hospital at 10 p.m., with a total bowel blockage caused by scar-tissue adhesions. I had first gone to the ER at 3 a.m. that morning, but the ER doc misdiagnosed my condition as constipation. I was in extreme pain and also too weak to tell my husband when he first came home that I needed to return to the ER. By the time I returned, I became violently nauseated, and vomited repeatedly. Then a gastro-nasal tube was forced down my nose and into my stomach. I began hallucinating at approximately 5 p.m. the following day. I did not realize I was hallucinating, and thought my experiences were real. Some were quite coherent, such as believing there was a book sitting on table at home with a photo on the front showing a sculpture in white marble of a woman's hands holding the Bible, with barbed wire wrapped around her hands. I thought the sculpture had won the Nobel prize, and the book was the biography of the sculptor, whose mother had gone to extraordinary lengths to keep him safe from the Nazis. Some may actually have occurred during dreams, and were wildly improbable, but I don't recall ever going to sleep. At one point, I thought I was at a rest stop on the NJ turnpike, and saw the Nobel-winning sculptor there, working on a wood sculpture. The sculptor turned out to be the maintenance man on the hospital floor. I pulled out the naso-gastral tube three times, but was unaware that I had done so, although I do remember believing that I was buried beneath peat moss and feeling suffocated as I clawed my way out. I also thought I was at a party being given by a law firm which had sold its building to a school for gifted children, but I (also a lawyer) had been deposited there by my nurse and her boyfriend, who were supposed to have taken me to the OR. Some scenes from a book I had been reading made their way into my delusions, which were so real to me that I actually called some of the people involved later on and asked if the events had really happened. The hallucinations began before surgery and continued afterward. When I awoke from anesthesia, I thought the hospital staff was painting the doors to my upstairs bathroom, a project I'd been involved with before the blockage struck. I asked them how they knew what colors to use. They thought I was joking, and confirmed that they had gotten the colors right. Finally a neurologist was summoned, and I told her I was on the passenger ramp at La Guardia airport (instead of in a hospital in NC), and that I'd been born in Havana, Cuba (instead of Baltimore, MD.) I believed myself to be a member of the ruling party in Cuba (pre-Castro) and during an outdoor ceremony, an earthquake had struck, causing ancient monuments to come tumbling down. Later, I was bobbing in harbor waters near a huge ocean liner, with plastic bottles and other detritus floating by. The foregoing are only a small sample of the multitude of hallucinations. Occasionally, I was only an observer of astonishing events, but usually I was a participant. I recognized my husband and friends, but told them about many of these events, believing they had happened. The neurologist diagnosed clonazepam withdrawal. My other doctors later said this was unlikely, as I took clonazepam in small amounts on an erratic schedule, and was not dependent on the drug, although my prescription called for 3 mg. daily. Physician friends said my symptoms were more likely the result of sepsis. I did contract a urinary-tract infection from the catheter, and was being given antibiotics. Additionally, the nature of my underlying condition, and the delay in diagnosis and treatment, may have contributed to the sepsis. Hallucinations occur in only a very small percentage of sepsis sufferers, and in only a small percentage of those withdrawing suddenly from clonazepam. However, I do fit the profile of those who do experience hallucinations with sepsis, being female and aged 62 at the time of this description. After the three-day period, I returned to normal, although believing that my hallucinations had been real persisted for some days afterward. I recovered quickly from the surgery, although the pain persisted for a while, and I was walking easily (dragging my IV with me) through the hospital halls. This was the ONLY symptom I had. Not all the hallucinations were unpleasant -- in fact, they were highly interesting -- but they were incredibly complex. I still remember all the details, better than I remember what actually happened yesterday. Except for the urinary-tract infection, I had no other adverse effects from hospitalization -- no fever, chills, nausea, sweating, headaches, trembling or anything of that kind. The bowel blockage and the surgery were of course not fun, but in a way the hallucinations were fascinating. My own feeling, and that of the doctors who know me and my medical issues, is that my experiences were caused by sepsis, not clonazepam withdrawal, and the antibiotics I was given are probably what saved me.
- Eczema and birth control-microgestin
I started getting eczema over the last year and recently decided it may be from the birth control as well, which I started taking @ 2 months before I got the eczema and skin started breaking out...weight gain, etc. I am on singulair, westcort cream, moisture/kenalog, exederm cream, cerevue wash, cetaphil moisturizer, and started using the black soap which is apparently helping. I started a vegetarian diet and eat mainly the same foods daily to monitor anything for allergies. I stopped taking the pill 3 days ago and I am optimistic. I am hoping others have had positive experiences.
- Eczema and birth control
I have never had eczema in my life. A few years ago, in March/April 2012, I began taking birth control (Caziant) for the first time. About a month or two later, I noticed a red patch of skin on my armpit that wouldn't stop itching. I was given different types of fungal creams and corticosteriod creams and they only made it worse. Then, it started spreading to my arms, hands, pelvic, and breasts.
I was told by doctors and dermatologists that it is eczema and allergies. Had an allergy test done and took out products I was allergic to from my diet and products. I was given singular for the allergies and hydroxyzine for the itching but I still feel itchy and scratch all the time.
I have been vegan for 10 years, recently gluten free because of a slight allergy, I eat healthy, I stay away from everything I'm allergic to as much as possible, I wash with African black soap and moisturize 2-4 times daily with coco butter and coconut oil, I do not use perfume, I use fragrance free laundry soap and wear gloves when washing dishes. I am doing everything that is suggested but my eczema is only getting worse and spreading to my legs, neck, and face. It is so painful.
The only thing I can think of is it being correlated to birth control. I have decided to stop taking the pill and hope that it may clear up and go back to how my skin was before taking the pill.
