Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is testicular from taking tramadol permanent?
Since taking tramadol, which my doctor prescribed, I have had bad testicular pain, developed a lump in my right testicle, difficulty urinating, and a heaviness in my groin.
- Why is restoril showing poaitive in my urin when i never took this drug (1 answer)
I have been ill for 15 years, taking Methadone all the while along with Soma and Hydrocodone for break thru pain. I now include Lyrica daily.I have had 2 back surgeries, one detailing rod and cage around L4 L5 in 2007. Most recent Nov 2013 at the Laser Spine Institute for spine decompression in that same area. Diagnosed w/ Arachnoiditis 15 yrs ago when working full time and since Methadone seems to be my only safe bet to take so that I can function. 4 years on Hizentra IVG home treatment every week. Lorazapam was prescribed for panic. Tried Diazapam more than 8-9 months ago, however that drug seems to back up in my system therefore I get no immediate relief but sort of a knock out sleep 8 hours later so we went back to Lorazapam. I am now unfortunately disabled, mostly homebound and 60 yrs old. Since this past August my urin specimen has come back positive for Restoril. This past month Restoril is still positive and described as habitual use. I am staring down a discharge from my physician who I care for, respect and admire, I never ever thought this would happen. We just took another test I offered to get another different Lab test she told me to wait so I am but its killing me. I never took a sleeping other than Unisom OTC in my Entire life. Never been prescribed Restoril, no offense but would never take it on top of what I already take and Lord knows how I would react to this drug. If I am awake all night that's just the way it is and I live with it. Why is this foreign drug showing up in my system? Please help. Thank you kindly, Louise
- has diltiazem caused anxiety in anyone else?
I have had the implant for 7 years. Recently the doc was concerned about more frequent palpations and my blood pressure was up. So first I was put on a couple blood pressure pills, but just a couple weeks. Then they took me off of those and put me on the Diltiazem. When anxiety skyrocketed and I ended up in the hospital, they put me on the Lorazepam. It worked pretty well for a day or two. But the anxiety is creeping back up. I took a cup of CalMag this morning and it helped bring it down to reasonable. Is it possible that the medication is what is causing the serious anxiety? I have never been anxious like this. And it fill me with adrenaline and then I just feel worse.

- Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.
Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.
This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.

- Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.

- Using tramadol with anti-depressants
Using Tramadol with Anti-depressants
I was taking Tramadol for pain instead of Endone to cut out the opiates as well as my usual anti-depressant. After about 6 months of feeling dizzy spells and nausea I stumbled across information that these two medications should not be mixed. After all of the extensive tests they did to find out why I had these symptoms, I informed my Doctor of what I had discovered. Much the their embarrassment, they realised I was correct and immediately took me off the tramadol. I just thought I would share this information in case any one else is going through what I did.

I stopped taking all of these 48 hours ago and think I am experiencing withdrawal
I was in three car accidents, one in which my head was turned and I got rear ended from behind that was when all the pain issues started along with the percocet prescription. I didn't intially use the script but later on in the years I started to develop alot more pain after being hit in two more whip lash car accidents in which my car was written off. I had a death of my parent only two months after the last accident and thats when I started to take more pain medication then prescribed. I have always had issues with my moods, I remember having a panic attack after a break-up with my long term boyfriend when I was 25 and going to a walk in clinic and them giving me effexor 75mg which worked great at that time, a little too great since I couldn't cry and eventually tried to overdose when the newest relationship I got myself involved in was to a married man and unhealthy. I kept off meds for sometime after that but found myself more stressed when I was 27 after my long term bf had an affair with my cousin and had two kids with her, I was left with a house in my name that was just bought 9 months prior and no job due to my pain issues. I started on wellbutrin 150xl then and virpo acid, which I didn't feel was working but looking back maybe it was. I have taken wellbturin more then 3 times since and everytime I Was very irritable and had to go off. I tried many other pills and I"m getting so fustrated. I really wish I had some answers, MY biggest complaint is that I"m always tired, which makes me depressed and in more pain. and then I find I'm abusing adderal or other stimulants to stay awake longer and then at night can't sleep. I was hospitalized and went through detox on my own in feb of this year. only to come out of the hospital on celexa 20mg and fight with the current bf over counserlling issues and break up and end up dating for 2 weeks a guy i met in hospital all in which time I relapsed. I am just a whits end. Please any advice would be great
