  • 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?
  • Losartan cause deep vein thrombosis

  • Tykosin and spontaneous erections
    After 15 minutes of taking Tikosyn 250 size I get spontaneous erections that remain in duration for extended periods of one hour or more. These happen several times during a 12 hour dose cycle.
  • Valtrex and warfarin
    Valtrex was prescribed to be taken every 8 hours. After 4 doses I became extremely cold while outside temperature is 80 degrees and also quite dizzy. I also take 5 mg. of warfarin daily. Although the herpes condition is not fully cleared, I plan to stop Valtrex. I believe the mix has caused my INR to rise too high. ny comments ? Its Sunday. No need to say more.

    A tooth (plural teeth) is a mignonne, calcified, whitish form start in the jaws (or mouths) of innumerable vertebrates and occupied to defeat down food. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also partake of teeth for the purpose hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but degree of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

    The ordinary structure of teeth is nearly the same across the vertebrates, although there is respectable converting in their fabric and position. The teeth of mammals have esoteric roots, and this figure is also found in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, manner, the teeth are partial to to the outer outwardly of the bone, while in lizards they are fixed devoted to to the inner interface of the jaw by a man side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are joined by means of tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.
