Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • If i am allergic to sulfa drugs may i take lomotil?
    Imodium no longer has much affect on my diarrhea. Looking for something more.
  • How is recurring mrsa treated
    I have been treated every 4-5 months for this condition since August 5, 2012
    followed all the guidelines involving the use of Mupuricin nasal swabs and anti-bacterial body washes. This stuff just keeps coming back
  • Can mrsa cause chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction?
    I had a small bowel obstruction caused by adhesions from an appendectomy carried out 20yrs previously and had grumbling pain ever since but been labelled a malingerer by my family GP until one day at work when I started with terrible tummy ache and sickness like I'd never known, fetching up bile with force. I hated going to hospital after yrs of being called a moaner but after a day of rolling round in pain, temperature of 103 an dehydration, my Mammy insisted we go and I was seen straight away - to my shock I was in theatre within 3hrs with a serious obstruction.
    I never really recovered... The obstruction returned after 2 days and a portion of necrotic bowel was removed, then further fever and cellulitis then MRSA and deaths door.... Isolation in high dependency (intensive care) wound break down, ventilated and all related issues that come with that - chest infection, pneumonia, bed sores. Total time in hospital 8 months. Negative pressure dressing on laparotomy wound, colostomy, picc, 4 rounds of vancomycin, minor flirt with heart failure (just water related) an eventually everything healed. Had a large incisional hernia to repair and some corrective work to the horrific scarring but then the neuropathy started plus problems eating, spewing up after any solid food, more than a few forks, diarrhoea and sickness or constipation nausea and pain driving me mad, tried all manner of drugs, nerve blocks, physio, floating tank, acupuncture, opiates, non opiates, spinal cord stimulation, an now a consultant just had a 'eureka' moment and said were you treated with vancomycin when you had MRSA? If so I'm pretty sure you have chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction and is 90% sure but wants to take a muscle biopsy to be certain. I've had so much surgery and bad news in the last 10yrs I'm terrified of germs, hospital acquired bugs and anaesthetics, is there any other way? Or can I have this test done awake - conscious sedation? I had it before during spinal cord surgery so I know what's involved and it's better than GA as I know what's going on, who is doing what to me etc...
    Does anyone with a medical background know about this ailment/disease? Does it sound feasible that MRSA or it's treatment could have caused this? I was surgically debrided up to every other day when the vac pac/negative pressure machine and dressings were changed and the doctors told me I lost a great deal of tissue and had a lot of nerve damage due to the infection.
    Any patient perspectives on this illness would also be very much valued in helping me make a decision, moving forward. If all this is going to accomplish is to attach a label to the pain but not actually change anything, after fighting it for 10yrs now, avoiding hospital as much as I can, I really can't see the point of exploratory surgerys and biopsys now when it is known that I have this propensity towards adhesions and a new wound means a potentially new adhesion growth site.
    If it helps, the appendectomy happened when I was 10yrs old, the MRSA when I was 30 and I am now 40.
    Beat Wishes.
  • Can i connect by email with other patients that have hypoglycemia and stevens-johnson syndrome? (1 answer)
    I have had hypoglycemia since childhood, and I have managed it easily until just this weekend. I got S-J two years ago from Bactrim. As I have healed from S-J very slowly and painfully, I was exercising hard, and working hard and slipped a little on not eating enough protein. I started dropping into sugar blackouts and it scared the crap out of me! Still working at being able to eat enough to straighten out low sugar levels. Any suggestions helpful, Thanks, Leann

  • Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
    I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • Isoniazid: the downside continued
    I also have extreme fatigue. I can sleep 8 hours and then take a 4 hour nap. I have dizziness which seems to be increasing in the last few weeks. I have nausea on and off. I have diarrhea in the morning 45 minutes after taking it. Then I am mostly constipated for the rest of the day. It seems like my hair is thinning. My skin is drying out or becoming considerably less elastic.
  • Gemfibrozil, depression and sleepiness
    I would like to hear from anyone who has had these symptoms, and how they dealt with it, by either lowering dosage or quitting the med, or other. Also would like to hear from others who continued to drink moderately and if this drug lowered their triglycerides...or those who were no longer able to stomach alcohol and had to quit....or had other reactions to gemfibrozil and alcohol use. My depression is becoming severe. I have life changes as well, so I can't figure if it is the drug. Had to take it as my triglycerides were over 900. They are now down to 250. Thanks
