Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Should call my doctor
I have been on the above drugs three days. Tody I have 100 degree fever and a cough the often results in a cough head ache. I also have a post nasal drip.
- Is it safe to take colloidal silver if you have a pacemaker
Just wondering if there would be an interaction between the particles in colloidal silver and the electrical fields of the pacemaker that would cause adverse effects. We are talking about the minimum dose of colloidal silver taken orally once a day.
- Can eating cannabis edibles cause a-flutter and a shigella infection?
It turned out to be food poisoning and I spent 10 nights in the hospital - 2 in the ICU. Is it possible that eating a cannabis edible caused the food poisoning and the A-Fib/flutter? They were going to do a spinal tap because of the headache thinking I might have meningitis. I'm confused at what really happened and why I got so sick. They put me in the ICU when my blood pressure dropped to 70/40. I guess I want to know if the cannabis could cause my shigella bacterial infection or if that was different from my heart issues.
- Could simvastatin cause atrial fibrilaltion
I have been taking simvastatin (10mg/day) for years
- Can i take a steroid while taking xarelto (1 answer)
I took prednisone for constant cough. had 3rd surgery on back one year ago. Had to patch spinal cord. Got blood clots. Had pulmonary embolism. Now have severe bronchitis. I know the prednisone will take care of cough, but what else?

- Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Eczema after takin xarelto
After the second day of taking Xarelto for a pulmonary embolism, I noticed a red itchy patch on my neck. My doctor identified it as eczema. I've never had it before in my life.
- Turmeric and atrial fabrillation
I am a "health nut" who has always avoided any and all tobacco and alcohol, am on no medication, am on a reasonably purer diet (organic foods etc.,) and daily take and assortment of vitamins, minerals and a few herbs like garlic and saw palmetto. I had recently began taking therapeutic doses of Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties in both powered and capsule forms--(powdered form for approximately two to three weeks--one teaspoon twice daily; capsule form for approximately three or four days--one capsule twice daily.) On the day in question, I took one teaspoon of the powered form of turmeric with a late lunch and left off the capsule form. I jog/walk two or three miles intermittently and roughly twice a week. Into the second mile of a three mile jog/walk that night,I experienced an unusual weakness and fatigue, stopped after the second mile and pulse was over 200. I had sweated a lot and after resting a while, I walked the third mile back home and showered. I was unable to sleep. My heart was in atrial fibrillation which was diagnosed hours later at the local Medical Center ER. Heart rate was fluctuating in the 150-170 range and was brought down to 100-120 range with I.V. medication but stayed in that range. Exactly 11 hours after its beginning and with virtually no sleep for over 24 hours and after drinking only water but with very little food and no vitamin or Turmeric consumption, immediately after standing up for the third time in four or five hours to go to the bathroom, I suddenly converted back to a normal heart rate which is 60 to 70 beats a minute and was released from the medical center seven hours later. Plan to stop taking all forms of Turmeric.
- Mouth sores from possibly taking xalerto
After my Hip Replacement in 2013 I got a really sore mouth, my husband looked inside to see if he could see anything and it was full of little white blisters even on my tonsils. Went to the dr and was told it was Mouth Sores/fungal infection possibly from this medicine. I couldn't eat anything but was thirsty all the time. I lost 15 lbs in a little over 2 weeks due to not being able to eat. Dr gave me Swish and Spit and they healed up within a few days.

From this study (1 month ago):
I have otosclerosis on bothe ears already 35-40 years. Both ears have had a stapedectomy surgery on both sides between 1979 and 1983. Sice that time the lost of hearing was more or less stable. In 2006 a CT-Scan has been made and everything was normal.In January 2014 A CT-Scan showed one of the protheses was not connected anymore. A new surgery was planned for November 2014.
In 2010 I started having problems with atrial fibrilation. Since 2010 I used the drug Fenprocoumon to prevent strokes.
Also in January my cardiologist advised me to use Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) 20mg, in order to avoid the continuously checking of the INR of my blood. I started to use 20mg Xarelto per day, during one year.
In November 2015 the surgery on my ear took place. The result was very poor: End of December 2014 a audio/hearing test has been done wich concluded a 50% loss of hearing. January 2015 again a CT-scan has been made wich showed a huge increase in bone growth in the inner ear and the middle ear, compairing to the Scans from Janary 2014 and 2006.
My otologist was very surprised: The CT-scan showed a succesfull surgery, so he asked me which drugs i took. Soon he concluded that the drug Rivaroxaban (Xarelto), which I was using one whole year during that same period,was the responsible cause for this devastating bone groth.
There is no way back. The damage is irreversable. The only solutieon left for me is a cochleair implantation.
So now I am looking fot medical evidence to be able to get some compensation from the Bayer Company.
New symptoms after 1 month on the drug
Each time I go on the drug, inflammationa and swelling escalates and the cycle of swelling, ingrown toenail, infection and drainage begins again. When Xarelto is discontinued, the swelling promptly resolves and the toenail heals.
