- Hypopituitarism and fever
I read your article on testing of hypopituitarisum and fever - http://www.ehealthme.com/cs/hypopituitarism/fever - Twice now in the past 2 years I have broken out in a great deal of pain accompanied by a high temperature of about 102. I was told since I take cortef, that I should not get fevers - but now I read that my health issues could be causing me fevers. These fevers have lasted for about 3 days. Doctors are baffled as to what causes the fevers - although your report makes it a bit clearer. The question is now, what do I do when I get these high fevers and aches which debilitate me for a week or better?

- Farxiga ? problems, stomach, smell, taste
I have been on Farxiga for 2 months. First, I was on Farxiga 5mg, About 6 weeks ago changed to 10 mg, about same time I noticed my coffee smelled different and bad, kept on a week and asked my wife. Changed coffee brand twice. It got worse, began to taste it. For the last week I can smell it in my food, anything fresh out of microwave. Now I smell it in my bowel movement. I called Doctor earlier in week reported. He wants to wait about a week and call back if persists. I am a diabetic and first few days this helped. Doctor reduced my insulin and got me off glimepiride and my Sugar readings have been higher since such as 175-200. This is my only medicine change close to time period. Please respond with help or if you experience similar problems.
- Traumatic anosmia, i cry every morning, still... (1 response)
I have had 4 major surgeries including a radical craniotomy at which point I lost my sense of smell completely. I still come to tears each morning even when I am happy. It feels like my body has lost a very close friend and is reminded as soon as it wakes up with every breath I take through my nose, my body returns to mourning this great loss.
I had hoped that over the past decade the tears would ease up and in some ways they have a little but it has taken a very long. I am 41, I lost my sense of smell at 26 years of age.
I cannot quite put into words the great and unavoidable sadness I go through upon waking up; and the fact that I will never know what my man smells like, or my future niece or nephew, my GrandMother's house or mine.
On several occasions I could not smell burning food on the stove or smoke in the house or when my hair caught on fire accidentally.
It is my wish that one day, they may be able to transplant some olfactory ganglia and perhaps, some sense of smell will return.
The emotional depression involved with this has been and will continue to be a significant part of my life. The body knows it has lost something great and no matter what I"m feeling like, upon awakening, it hits me, takes me and I become a sad wreck of tears.
I feel for anyone else out there that goes through this and hope one day, we may smell the roses and anything else, again.
