Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can i use a lidocaine patch for back pain if i am taking prograf for anti-rejection post lung transplant?
    Transplant was 6 years ago.
    Has suffered from PTLD on several occasions before.
    Recently hospitalized for Periodic Fever Syndrome.
    Received Interleukin 6 blocker last week and fevers have resolved, but back pain is still present
  • Does humira cause excessive sweating?
    Having psoriaticarthritis,fibromyalgia,psoriais,restless leg syndrome,roseacea and high blood pressure means complex health issues and a complex list of medication to go with it. Iam suffering extreme sweating,flushing and now a tickled cough. Now it could be due to going through the change (menopause) but that started a year ago and although I was getting the flushes and sweating,it was nothing like it is now! To me,it seems the excessive sweating started roughly a month after taking Humira. Having so many health issues I'm in tune with any changes and note and monitor them. I started Humira 10 months ago now. My Psoriasis has cleared completely so I'm really pleased. Usually,there's a trade off and you end up with something else! Could the issues I have be down to a single drug on the list,or a combination?
  • Would the tinnitus abate with if i discontinue methotrexate?
    I've just begun my 4th year of Methotrexate for Rheumatoid issue, but it also alleviated my psoriasis. I am hesitant to discontinue because the benefits are great. However, the tinnitus is becoming unbearable and almost maddening. I will more likely consider talking to my doctor about changing medications if 1. The tinnitus subsides with the discontinuance of Methotrexate and if 2. Other rheumatoid medication would not have the same issues with tinnitus. Just discovered the possible connection minutes ago and am eager and hopeful. Please help. Thank you. -Celeste
  • Can i take humira while i still have pinpoint red spots on my skin? i have been told to stop the methotrextrate and they started me on prednisone to clear it up, i am scheduled to start humira.
    I have been diagnosed with R/A and started taking Methotrextate and Folic Acid. I began to break out like I had the measles. Was told it was a reaction to the methotrextate. I was taken off of it and given a large dose of prednisone. My question is I am scheduled to start taking Humira injections and I have been off of the methotrextate 24 days and it has not cleared up yet. Is is safe to start the Humira injections?
  • What does unmasking mean; and does it mean that i always had hight cholesterol and triglycerides, or did actemra increase them?
    I have failed many RA meds, and now receive actemera x's 10 months I have never had high cholesterol or triglycerides and did not get my cholesterol checked except for the baseline 2/2014 and 12/2014 I was 198 TChol and now am 245; my tri up 85 points. my MD said that now that my inflammation is normal it shows my true cholestorol. I don't understand.

  • Humira: my experience
    I have had some form of arthritis probably since birth. My father and maternal grandfather had some form of arthritis. I began to realize pain in both ankles if I stood or walked too long.

    I began taking many NSAIDs when I was around 22. I've done gold, prednisone (twice), plaquenil, butazoidin, sulfasalazine, etc. My best results came with methotrexate after I got cellulitis in my knee (scratch it while kayaking in the summer, fiberglass boat). It dropped my sed rate from over 100 to 35 or so within a few months. I continued with MTX from 1977 to 2000 when my MD suggested Enbrel and stopping MTX. That was a VERY bad decision. Enbrel appeared to mask the disease for a few years. I had my left MCP replaced in 2004, my right heel debrided in 2010, and both my TMJs replaced in 2012. I strongly believe that if I had kept with the MTX it would have delayed those changes. Additionally, in 2011 I was in a bus crash returning from RAGBRAI. I got knocked out from three to six minutes. I had a nasty concussion that lasted 2+ years. Towards the end of the third year post accident I started exercising more aggressively. After doing several 40, 50, and 60 miles rides, I took a leisurely 50 mile ride around Boston at night. Two days later I had a spinal edema. So much for biking and other active sports! :-(

    I have continued with MTX. Late 2013 my MD increased my MTX to .8/week. I had been taking .6/week. I stopped taking Enbrel and switched to Humira in early 2014. I took it for a few months before my doc and I realized it was not doing any better than Enbrel. I tried Humira for three months but it did not seem to work any better than Enbrel. In early June I stopped Humira and waited a few weeks before I started Otezla. I stopped Oterzla on 9/15/14 because it made me depressed and allowed my morning stiffness to get much worse.

    I started prednisone again from the start of July. By mid-August I told my MD that I was screaming louder than I ever had; my dog was very startled. I stopped it gradually over the next two weeks. Meanwhile, the Otezla made me feel awful.

    My MD is going to get me onto another injectable that I take monthly. I forget its name.
  • Psoratic arthritis and trigeminal neuralgia
    hi i suffer from psorisis and psoratic athritis i was just diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia i was looking for the connection between the two and i see that there is one from your study
    the thing is all 13 people in the study said to have psoriatic arthropathy yet only one said to have psoratic arthritis yet to the best of my knowledge it is the same condition just a diffrent name which means all those studied have psoratic arthritis like me
    also i have not been taking those medicines in the study yet i have the same condition so if you take me into account could be the oly conecction between all of us is the psorisis and psoratic arthritis and not the medicine
  • Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
    My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
  • Living with chronic pain while battling with psychological disorders. (1 response)
    I have had back problems since 2004. I have been on pain management since 2007. A year ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Not only does fibromyalgia cause deep wide spread pain, it also makes me feel lethargic, fluish, and greatly effects my daily life. I also have some psychological conditions as well. Mostly due to a traumatic event experienced as a child.
  • Personalized review of arava (1 response)
    Have had RA for 10 years and was on Methotrexate those 10 years. Had nose bleeds which got progressively worse over the years and began to effect my quality of living. Doctor said it could NOT be the drug, but according to eHealth Me, it could. At urging of an ENT, I stopped taking Methotrexate and the nose bleeds have now almost completely stopped. My doctor put me on Arava 3 days ago and I am on eHealth to study the effects of it.

  • Lung function tests outcome - OK for someone with Primary Sjogrens Syndrome. Sprirometery Tests - 320 (normal between 300 - 400) GP told me. Hypoxia diagnosed when I went for pre-op testing and again after op. GP told me everything was normal.
    After knee arthroscopy recently - surgeon told me I had chondro-calcinosis (Pseudogout). Now Rheumatologist has informed me that I have real Gout. He is thinking now about putting me on another drug! Nurse Specialist has suggested Iloprost Infusion - yet another drug. I meet none of the risk factors for gout so I am wondering if I am experiencing side effects from the other drugs I am on. I work for the NHS full time and have to for some years to come as I am the only breadwinner. Thanks for your website - very informatve. Kind regards. Chris Kirwan (Mrs)

  • I want to know if in fact there is a relation between these conditions and if there is any possibility that the adderall which he used for years before getting the other two conditions has anything to do with the two. Also if the chronic asthma medications he was exposed as a baby (proventyl, pulmicort and prednisone). Fyi child has allergy to amoxil. Thank you.
