- Can low dose hrt cause schambergs disease
For 10 years I have been suffering from what is commonly called golfers Vasculitis. A red or purple rash from my feet up tp my knees which only comes on when I play golf. I have been taking oral hrt (now a low dose called Premique) since I was around 40. I wear support hose prescribed by my doctor which helps a bit, but the condition is worsening. I dread giving up golf as it is my social life as well as my favourite sport.
- Can curcumin c3 complex cause very dry mouth?
I have been takingall the above drugs since being diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 1998-99. The only variation is prednisone which I take only when I have a flare. Itook my first Curcumin C3 Complex capsule 3 days ago. 500mg. I decided to start with one a day for awhile. After a few hours I had the dryestmouthever! Both days it has impimproved considerably by the end of the 24hours. A couple hours after takingit this morning mymouth is horribly dry again. It has to be the Curcumin since nothing else has changed for years. Anyone else with this problem? The reason I amtaking it is a couple of years ago my gastrodr wanted me to take it for my GERD but I didn't want to. But the other day I read that it helps with joint pain which I have badly so thought I'd give it a try for both reasons.
- Blood thinners that work for atrial fib and possible interaction with low count wbc. (1 answer)
Taking rivaroxaban (Xarelto)15mg.recently for my Atrial Fib. I feel depress and week since I,m taking this blood thinner, Trying only (acetaminophen arthritis pain)for my Reumathoyd Arthritis when necessary for pain, and 5m prednisone daily. Actually my WBC are very low.
Taking Toprol 100mg and Norvasc 5mg for my blood pressure for 20 yrs (no problem). Levothyroxine 50mg one year ago.
Use CPAD to sleep for my sleep apnea.
- How should hydrocortisone (cortef) be tapered? am at 2.5 mg am per day.(2dary adrenal insufficiency)
Within 4 weeks of starting on Hydrocortisone, 40 mg, gained 21 lbs., almost entirely in stomach area; pushes on diaphragm, interferes with breathing (not previously a problem). Have continued to gain weight, despite having had a gastroplasty years ago (stomach = approx. 1/3rd of a cup). Am at 2.5 mg hydrocortisone, AM, daily, and am wanting to discontinue. How do I proceed? Withdrawal effects to expect?
Use CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) machine @ 9cm pressure at night. Still have some short apneic episodes. Scheduled for septoplasty and sinuplasty to correct nasal defects. Hopefully, these procedures will decrease sleep apnea.
- Should i still be working with my conditions? (1 answer)
I have low T and am being treated for this among other things. I seem to be tired most of the day. I am obese and am going to have the gastric sleeve surgery. I don't know if that will help the feeling of tiredness each day. Most of the med's I take can make you tired. I am just getting real sick of feeling this way. I go to the gym 3 days a week and I feel good after that but the next day I am tired again. My sleep is always interrupted. Is there any help for me?

- Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
- Avelox with prednisone and nabumetome = disaster
I was prescribed that combination of drugs in January 2013 when I went to my family doctor with a bad chest congestion and painful knees. After starting on the drugs, I got a severely painful neck and thumb and noticed some tingling in my left foot. I took the whole course of the avelox and prednisone, though I discontinued the nabumetome. I kept getting weaker and weaker till I could hardly walk. I ended up in the emergency room and was first diagnosed with Rhabdomyolysis but rushed to a bigger hospital for further diagnosis and treatment. I was close to needing blood, my kidneys were shutting down and I could barely walk. I was so weak! My right hand and left foot went "to sleep" and still haven't woken up. ( as of October 2013)
After many, many tests, they came up with a tentative diagnosis of vasculitis and myositis.
Then I had a kidney biopsy which confirmed the vasculitis and I was immediately treated with chemotherapy -- cytoxin for 6 months.
IAlthough I do feel much better, I am still suffering and taking drugs for the vasculitis and I am told that I may go into remission, but it could flare up again anytime. I am convinced that it was the drug combination that caused all this. I had been feeling great and had a daily walking routine of walking 2 to 5 miles per day, and no other complaints.
The nephrologist did say that while it might be that the vasculitis was drug induced, it didn't matter because I have it and he's treating it and would be doing it this way no matter how I got it.
When I told my family doctor that I thought it was the drug combination that caused my problems, he seemed surprised and really no discussion. I told them to put it in my medical records to NEVER give me a flouroquinolone drug again.
Yesterday when I went for a blood test and urinalysis ( which I was doing biweekly, but now every 6 weeks), it showed that I have a UTI and guess what the family doctor called in a prescription for? Cipro!!!! And he knows I'm still on prednisone and have only 30% kidney function!!!!!!
While I am not a litigious person, this really makes me so upset!!! I don't have the money to try to sue, but if telling my story will help keep unsuspecting people from the horrible damage this has caused, I feel obligrdmtomspeak up. I have had a terrible year. And I'm still not okay. And the drugs 'm taking make me susceptible to other problems. I'm still all puffed up from the prednisone. A couple of weeks ago I decided to try going for walks again, hopefully to lose some of this weight and build up my strength. It is so hard for me and my left foot hurts so bad. My legs feel so heavy it is a real struggle to walk a mile. But at least I can. When I was at my sickest, could barely walk to the bathroom and I could not get up from the toilet without using my arms to pull myself up. I couldn't go up the two steps to get into my house without help. I couldn't go upstairs to my bedroom for months.

From this study (5 months ago):
Essential hypertension coronary angioplasty and obstructive sleep apnea
From this study (6 months ago):
I had a small amount of the hyperpigmentation between the nose and mouth (mustache area) before starting any of the drugs listed above, however, I was on Methadone at the time. That was about 3 years ago. Over the last 2 years it has spread to my cheeks & chin as well. Basically I have darkened skin in the areas of the face that a beard would cover, which causes me to look like I have a beard and mustache.
From this study (9 months ago):
I have had on going depression for many years, but after two sister's homocides, I started having anxiety attacks, feelings of disconnect, very poor sleep, and then broke out in skin lesions, all over my arms, elbows, face, in my ears, and on my head. I have had several biopsies, and no one report comes back the same. My sleep has deteriorated, even further, since this all started. My sysmptoms started with muscle spasms, pain, headaches, and anxiety...then the sores...that won't go away. I am not causing the sores. They just appear, and take weeks, to months, to heal...I went to the U of M, and a doctor in dermatology wanted to prescribe Doxepin...I didn't understand the connection....and had just recently switched anti-depressants, from Cymbalta to Prozac, so I did not feel comfortable starting another anti-depressant, given my mental state...The anxiety I had was so bad, I could not make myself walk out my front door. I have never had anything like this happen to me...I have seen several different specialist's, and none of them agree on anything in partciular....I need some input here.
