  • I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
    The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!
  • Memory loss (blockade)
    I was on a very long and unpleasant car trip (driving 900km from A to B), that started with 6 hours long border crossing, that involved occasional pushing of a heavy car in order to spare fuel. After that, another 8 hours of driving. I developed a spasm in the area of my low back pain.

    When we arrived at the destination, I asked my wife (of 60+kg) to press my back in that area with her foot. I did not pay attention how exactly she was doing that and she did it by applying stronger pressure, and over the whole spinal area, provoking strong pain in one moment, instead of a relief.

    This happened 6 days ago (10 Aug 2014).

    I went to bed after applying quite a big amount of Diclofenac gel on my back, and I did not get up for the next 36 hours, and was mainly sleeping, however, the whole muscular area was in a spasm and on certain moves very painful after that 'rest'.

    The place where I am now is quite remote, and doctors are not available. As the condition was really bad / painful, I decided to take an advice from a cousin, and started to take the Diclofenac 50 mg orally; and the advice was that it is allowed to take one tablet every 6 hours = 200 mg/day. This has had a good effect and the pain disappeared, except in a mild intensity on certain moves, in that area where I felt the strong pain during my wife's manipulation of my back (basically what happened was that she used her full weight to step on my back, trying to lower the weight by supporting herself with her arms opposed to a piece of furniture which was laid parallel to my laying position, which I think caused the force on my spinal chord to be not vertical, but under an angle).

    Anyway, after 5 tablets of 50mg Diclofenac taken in 6 hours intervals, and as I was feeling better I decided to stop with using the Diclofenac. However, I continued to take Diclofenac 50 mg next day as the back pain returned with greater intensity.

    As this time I read on the Diclofenac package that the maximum dosage should be 150 mg/day, I used it for 2 days in 8 hours interval. This kept the level of pain bearable i.e. not intense and appearing only with that specific move / bending of my body. I was also swimmming in the sea, which in general did not make the situation with the pain worse.

    Why am I writing this report?

    I noticed yesterday, when I had taken Diclofenac 50mg already 6 times in the 8hrs interval, that I had a strange memory blockage: I was watching a movie with a famous actor, and I could not remember the name of the actor. Then I realised, I cannot remember the name of another famous actor, of whom I was reading in newspapers a lot these last few days, and we were talking about that few times.

    Then I thought of another famous actor, and I could not remember his name either! (although I could remember the faces, names of the relevant movies, sequences from those movies etc, for all the 3 actors).

    I have to emphasise that the first actor's name which I realised I cannot remember I did not see during the broadcasting of the film on the TV (but had seen the photo and read the name in the newspapers on that day or a day earlier). Then I thought I could "help" myself by concentrating on that actor's most famous movie, remembering of which I do not have a problem, but that did not help retrieving the name of the actor!

    In spite of expecting to remember the names, this is still not happening.

    If it won't be the case that actor's names were not refreshed so recently, I would consider this as the result of aging, stress, lack of refreshing my memory 'on that side' as I do not watch movies too often in the last years, etc, but still in spite of that I would expect to remember those names.

    I am not obsessed with this situation, and ended up writing this after I wanted to learn more about the types of memory loss, and possible experiences in relation to the use of Diclofenac, when I read that one of the side effects is also related to memory loss.

    I have stopped now with taking the Diclofenac, and will try not to expose myself to sources of information that could help remembering those particular names, to see if and when I will possibly remember these particular names "on my own".

    I did not obsessively try to see if I remember or not remember some other names, but have 'tested' my memory by trying to remember some names of actors I would expect to remember with less chances than those names that instigated this situation, and basically had no problem to remember those 'less expected to remember' names...

    Can this be a 'good' time to discuss seriously about testing myself for early signs of Alzheimer's disease or something similar?
  • Sphingomonas paucimobilis: the interesting infection (1 response)
    I'm no medical expert, nor am I some marvelous gifted writer so first and foremost, please forgive any errors of my report.

    Clinical Aspects

    I'm not exactly sure when I contracted this bacteria or how, but on 04/14/2014 I went to the doctor for what I called "a bruise on my leg that had been there for months and had'nt healed" I saw Dr. F Magno of San Benito medical associates in Harlingen tx. I told him that my odd bruise is now hinted with green and yellow color with dark black round spots in its middle as well as what seemed like wide open pores. He ran both swab skin test on the area as well as a blood test. He gave me a general antibiotic, as well as some medication for the ringworm I was also fighting. After that he said they would call when the results came in and not to worry because "more than likely its a minor bacterial infection seeing how the bruise is on the shin and the source is probably minor shin splints"

    Well a few days later on 04/19/2014 I got the call from San Benito Medical associates in Harlingen, Tx telling me the results were in. I had Sphingomonas Paucimobilis.The nurse didn't tell me anything more than "its a bacterial infection and we would like you to come in as soon as possible"

    So i decided I would do my own research before making the 20 min drive into the city and spend $30+. WebMD, MayoClinic and others had nothing. I searched web pages and scientific journals and found little that a lay person like me could comprehend. I did find 47 reported cases since 1993. 47 cases/ 20 years didn't look good to me so i went in.

    Upon going there D.O Kanaan was the physician who read me my results, now ive been seeing her as my primary physician for the last 5 years. She lets her patients know everything she can about their diagnosis and treatment, good and bad. She's always on the ball and never gives you room to doubt her care. However this time was different. She stared at the test result papers blankly "Yep... you got it... and i got a list of approved medications to give you... uh, lets put you on Ciprofloxacin no penicillin in that so we don't have to worry about your allergy..." with this I knew she didn't know much about this so I told her what I found on the internet and that got her asking questions but we came to a dead end. Just as I was leaving she asked "what kind of specialist do i send you to if the antibiotic doesn't work?" i looked her in the eye and said fearfully "I don't know doc, I was hoping you would".

    Personal Aspect

    Well its an ugly bruise, had it for months, it was hurting a lot when i bumped it at work, so i looked at it and it was green and yellow. I showed it to my manager and they sent me home to go to the doc.

    i dont know how long i had it but ive been more ill that usual the past few months with sore throat, ringworm, stomach virus, cold sores, everything spreadable that was around me. I've got 3 more days left of antibiotic and its not clearing. I dont know what to do. Is there anyone who can help? am I currently alone? I'm scared.
  • Skin rash in diclofenac potassium
    After a car accident in 2011 I took Diclofenac for back & shoulder off and on for about a year. During that time I developed random spots usually on my arms and legs that itch severely and sometimes get infected. I still suffer from the itchy spots and I am DESPERATE for a cure for my agony. I haven't taken the medicine for over a year but the itchy spots still come and go.
  • Hallucination on diclofenac sodium (1 response)
    I experienced two horrible hallucinations when i was on this. The first it was early hours of the morning while i was in hospital asleep, i opened my eyes and saw like a demon nurse walking towards me, i was trying to scream but i was making quiet moaning noises instead, she came closer and closer with her arms stretched up in the air leaning forward. i blinked a few times and she went away. For the next couple of days i just assumed it was a very realistic dream i had. I was discharged a couple of days later and it was about 1pm when i started to feel dizzy and very tired to the point that i couldnt keep my eyes open. I only drifted off for about 10 minutes when i opened my eyes my friends were coming up my stairs and were in my sight as my room is an antic room. they asked me if i was coming downstairs and i tried replying that i felt ill and would be there soon, i asked for their help but noticed they were ingonoring me. everything was blury and i felt so dizzy i followed them half way down the stairs which i was really struggling to do i looked back at my bed and saw my physcial body still there, i blinked and i was back laid in my bed staring at the same spot. i tried about 4/5 times to go down the stairs but my physical body wasnt moving and kept putting me everytime i blinked. I looked down at my body and moved my legs but my physical body wasnt moving with my mental body. i was trying to get it to stick but it wouldnt.. i started to panick and thought oh my god im dead, im f**king dead. i finally managed to move and realised it was all a hullcination and was in such a state crying and shaking like mad because i thought i was dead. It was horrible and i stopped the diclofenac straight away. would much rather be in pain then go through anything like that again xx
