  • My endocrinologist /doctor has my fluid intake limited to 48 ounces of liquids per day (all liquids) because my sodium levels were off due to the drug spironolactone , I was taking 200 mg per day but have cut back to 100 mg per day for the last year.
    Also my Crestor dosage is 20 mg per day.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • 1st 3 symptoms due to a tooth extraction on 10/22/12 by an over-zealous dentist. After much effort the tooth finally came out and he exclaimed, "Most dentists would have sent a patient with a tooth like that to an oral surgeon, but I seem to have very good luck in getting them out." Little did I know that he had broken my maxillary bone and a week later I almost died from multiple bacterial infections in my sinus cavity. The bacteria damaged all 3 branches of my Trigeminal nerve and 3 surgeries later I have seen no improvement. Now have double vision in right eye and trigeminal pain 24/7. Gabapentin was a life saver, but only decreases pain and never eliminates it. Severe coughing started soon after starting gabapentin and cough is very wet, as if I have bronchitis. Chest x-Ray 4/7/14 shows normal and my doctor is perplexed. Neurologist has me taking Dextromorphan Hydrobromide, but seems to be ineffective. Help!
