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!

- Review: could lyrica cause intracranial pressure increased?
One dose (75mg) caused severe head pain (increased intracranial pressure) and nausea.
- Topamax side affects
I have taken Topamax for 14 years. A few months after starting I had difficulty speaking. My specialist said it would improve. It did... Enough to get by.
3 years later I got Encephalitus and was hospitalised.
It took a year to walk normally again.
A year later I began experiencing MS-like symptoms. Nerve pain shooting down my legs, numbness and weakness in limbs. Needed to use a walking stick.
. I had tests for brain tumours, none to be found luckily. Then more spinal taps for possible MS. Nothing. So the experts put to down to my possible neuroticism.
I became depressed.
Took medication for anxiety/depression.
Discovered I had periphal neuropathy. (Damaged nerves)
Lost my job last year due to memory loss.
Just recently discovered these side affects are common on Topamax and the lawsuit. I am currently reducing this medication slowly and taking Taurine, calcium and magnesium to help get my life back.
