Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Has abilify affected your ability to make good decisions?
My husband and I are 73. We had a paid off home and money in the bank until the past 3 years. We have made some terrible decisions and now we are practically penniless. We couldn't understand why we had made such bad decisions and let someone talk us into losing our money. We have also been on Abilify about the same amoount of time and I noticed that the commercials say a side affect can be lack of judgement or something to that effect. Has anyone else had this happen?
- Could the combination of mestinon and robaxin in myasthenia gravis patients be fatal? (1 answer)
My 43 yo daughter, Amy Baker, was diagnosed 8 months ago with Myasthenia Gravis. She was prescribed Mestinon and then Robaxin 750mg. She died in her sleep January 27, 2014. My email is email@example.com
- Is the a correlation with mycobacterium and myasthena gravis? (2 answers)
I was exposed to a leper colony for about five months while in Vietnam. Many of the lepers died with open wounds and I actually wore some of their beads and trinkets around my neck. I slept on their beds and drank from their water source. Out of the clear blue almost 40 years later with no indication at all I came down with Myasthenia Gravis. Thyroid plays no role in my disease, so that has been rules out.
Does the Mycobacterium in Leprosy have any possible correlation with me getting Myasthenia Gravis?
- Does polycystic liver disease cause back and hip pain?
I was diagnosed with a polycystic liver 20 years ago during a scan for a possible Thymus malignancy after diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis. The finding of the cystic condition of my liver was incidental, and I was told this was a benign condition which was normally asymptomatic. I have developed abdominal distension and, incidentally, chronic pain in my lower back, hips and legs. I am wondering if the pain is connected to the liver distention; also wondering if I should be screened for polycystic kidney disease.
- Can you lose weight with myasthenia gravis

From this study (3 weeks ago):
Tootsie Roll on Dec, 20, 2014:
81 yr old female, already blind in right eye and glaucoma in left. Have started Losartan Potassium for blood pressure. This article has put the fear in me for the health of my remaining eye. At my age, I feel like just taking my chances with trying to control BP with diet, etc.. Would total blindness be better than high blood pressure? I don't think so. But doctors don't like to be questioned and further trips to my doctor for other ailments would be uncomfortable.
From this study (1 month ago):
Very tired, droopy eyes and yells when does get his way. Goes to PT and OT once a week and has Home Hospital for school. I don't see a difference when he takes his meds.
