- How dangeros is shingles in 65 year old male and is it contageous
My freind is very sick, has not eaten in several days. Has large sores on his lower leg. Says he is in a lot of pain. He has not been to the doctor. I am very concearned about this.
- 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.
- 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

- Tardive dyskinesia and shingles
I have always been hypersensitive to drugs. I have multiple allergies which have in some cases caused anaphylaxis. I developed Tardive Dyskinesia after being on Geodone for five days. (stopped geodon immediately after manifestation of symptoms) The symptoms began on the third day. I have managed to keep the Tardive Dyskinesia under control or to a few ticks finding my triggers and avoiding them. Like Caffeine, stress, and anxiety. I also had physical therapy and joined a gym. I also take an herbal supplement Relax and Sleep (4 yrs now) which helps a great deal. Recently, I developed shingles. The pain was unbearable and for some reason it triggered or aggravated Tardive Dyskinesia. I've been having inner tremors ever since and have had two bouts of Tardive Dyskinesia that borders on violent. I look like I'm having a seizure or Parkinsons. I always feel it coming on before it strikes. My chest muscles tighten and my arms and body are tense but I'm constantly moving. I can't speak and have difficulty walking when it occurs. My legs feel like weights. My face twitches, my eye winks and I can't swallow. Relax and sleep by natures made has been a life saver. It has melatonin, valerian root and chamomile. As a matter a fact I was in remission for a year. I only had subtle movements. I posted the discovery on youtube and other people have reported improvements. Mainly I wanted to know if the shingles triggered this episode because it effects the nerves? My grandmother developed alzheimer's late in life. I'm 49 years of age. Something is wrong. I can feel it.
- Valtrex and warfarin
Valtrex was prescribed to be taken every 8 hours. After 4 doses I became extremely cold while outside temperature is 80 degrees and also quite dizzy. I also take 5 mg. of warfarin daily. Although the herpes condition is not fully cleared, I plan to stop Valtrex. I believe the mix has caused my INR to rise too high. ny comments ? Its Sunday. No need to say more.
