Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is sciatica and macrobid induced muscle and joint pain reversible?
Was prescribed Macrobid twice in one month for Bladder infection. Experienced severe joint and muscle pain during the seven days I was taking it. That was back in September, 2014. It is now mid-December. Is this condition reversible?
- Why would i get copd since i never smoked?
I have several autoimmune disorders, I was shocked to get the COPD diagnosis since I have never smoked but I had second hand smoke first 23 years of my life.
My doctor said my Autoimmune Hepatitis and Primary Biliary Cholingitis set me up for COPD.
- Is it possible to be on dep provera for a year and have shrunk over 3 inches?
I was on the Depo Provera shot for exactly a year. When I first got on it I was almost 5'10 and I got off the shot last December, and I now measure barely 5'6. I have no understanding as to why I have lost this much height. I have been trying to figure out the reason for a year now. This shot gave me low sex drive, made me sick, gave me terrible mood swings, and i had no idea it was doing any of these things until my now husband pointed them out to me and it caused a serious strain in our relationship. It has been almost a year since I got off the shot and I am still decreasing slowly in height and haven't had a period in a couple years, never on the shot and haven't since I got off. I'm so curios (and scared) to find out why this is happening.
- Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
I am desperate for some relief!
- My family member is dignosed with leprosy recently and i fear if i got infected (1 answer)
There is sudden pain in the right side of waist, and pain in ankle raises till thighes while walking through calves and make it almost difficult to take any further step. Thanks for taking interest and giving time

- Pokeweed skin lesions
I have a large patch of pokeweed in my woods. It is lovely -- but treacherous for me. Mid to late summer, I'll cut a few down (with a lopper) and carry them carefully to a brush pile. Invariably, even with the greatest care, I get skin hemorrhages on arms and legs. I wear long sleeve shirt and long trousers, yet some pokeweed juice still comes through. (The only 'open' aspect of the pokeweed is the stem base, where I cut it.) It's astonishing to me that even with major precautions, I still get lesions -- they look like large bruises. It takes 2-4 weeks for them to resolve and go away. No pain, just ugly patches on my arms and legs where the juice somehow got through. Mostly, I avoid pokeweed because of this, but sometimes must cut and move it, but only a few plants.
- Oxybutynin chloride and chest pain
A urologist prescribed Vesicare (and Estrace cream) early in 2013 for urge incontinance. When hospitalized for cellulitis (never had it before) in May (2013), I took lots of I-V Clindamycin. The hospital had Ditropan on their formulary, and the urologist switched to it (it was cheaper)--and I continued taking Oxybutynin throughout the summer (2013).
Before 2013, I had had rare episodes of chest pain (not proven angina) no more than once a year. While on Vesicare and Dipropan, the frequency of chest pain increased to once a month, then once a week, then twice a week, then every other day (by late summer). In July I had a treadmill-EKG (with radioisotope) in USA and my family-practice-physician said it was normal and that my chest pain is NOT heart-related. He took me off Indocin and I have since quit taking Meloxicam and aspirin (no NSAIDs now). I returned to where I live overseas in early August and continued to have chest pain with increasing frequency. In the city where I live, it is too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter. I saw an American doctor (overseas) in mid-August and my heart rate was irregular (I've never been told THAT before). My blood pressure is usually perfect, but this time my diastolic BP was the lowest it's ever been (about 50). My EKG was said to be normal (except slow rate). My normal pulse is about 60. The doctor said the low diastolic blood pressure was my body's way of helping me "beat the heat," and she suggested I lower the dosage of Oxybutynin from 15 mg daily to 10 mg daily--at least until the summer heat abated. [She was concerned about possible synergistic effect of anti-histamine (Claritin) and anti-cholinergic (Oxybutynin).] Having no return of urologic symptoms (which were severe a few months ago), I have since lowered the dosage of Oxybutynin from 10 mg daily to 5 mg daily.
I am 68 (had total thyroidectomy in 1978, 3 C-sections in the early 1980's, and two total knee replacement surgeries in 1998 and 2007). I had elevated anti-TPO in 2012 and a new dx of auto-immune thyroiditis early in 2013 (but 98% of my thyroid tissue was removed in 1978).
- I got pneumonia while taking topamax, obvious correlation
I do not take all the medicines above all the time but I am using an implanted pump giving me less than 2mg of dilaudid per day, 75 mg effexor daily and usually buspar. Dr prescribed topamax within 4 days I was hospitalized with Pneumonia, stayed a week came home a week had a clear chest x ray and the next week I got it again and was hospitalized 9 days that time. I knew I had been on the med but could not remember the side effect that made me come off previously until i started it again 2 days ago and woke today with Pneumonia again. Last time my pulmonologist said that the med in combination with the antidepressant which is all I take right now relaxes me too much and it paralyzes my choking reflex causing aspiration of saliva and ultimately waking up sick as the bacteria laced fluid goes crazy in the moist conditions of the lungs.
