  • I amwondering if i have myathesia gravis (1 answer)
    I am thinking that after a long bout of going nowhere with Drs. That I might have Myathesia Gravis. My Grandmother had it and I am thinking that my brother had it when he was born.He failed to thrive at first as he was unable to suck very well. He did make it though with a forced feeding of milk and bananas. He was sickly all his life though and recently died of cancer. I noticed that my eye is drooping on the left side. I have periods of extream fatigue, my left arm is tingly and I can't seem to feed myself without changing to my right hand. I have spinal stenosis and severe pain in my hip area but my right big toe seems to be tingly from time to time. I also have a swallow problem that causes me to choke or throw up the food or drink. Pills stay part way down a lot. My G.I. guy wants to strech my esophegus. I tend to eat soft foods and stay away from steak or anything chewy. I have congestive heart failure, sudden cardiac death, syncope all of which I greatfully managed to survive. I have fibromyalgia, and some nodules on my chest wall ( i forget what that is called) I have had 5 or 6 bouts with Costochrondritus which was way worse than actually having my heart stop. Costo hurts like a beech! I am frequently short of breath, exercize intolerant and have trouble holding my water.I have good dsys and bad days. Also my left hand and the base of my scalp goes all numb and tingly sometimes. There is also a terrible electric shock type feeling in my mid back area that makes me completely stop in my tracks and feel like I have been hit with a 350 lb pro football player. I have been hypokalimic after taking water pills (Ferosimide) i have taken prendisone for the Chosto and feel better immediatly, but I have mental reactions to too much Prendisone. I am very allergic to NSAID'S and pennicillian. Anyone got any ideas that the Drs have maybe not thought of... I would sure like to get better and go dance but the last time I danced I lasted 3 minutes before I had to fall into a chair.
  • How do i change the drugs listed for me?
    sleep disorders, disorientation, trouble concentrating
  • Can i take my ativan if i'm taking phenteremine? (1 answer)
    I just started taking phenteremine and I can't sleep. I take it at 6 am
    Am I able to take an Ativan at bed time?
  • Looking for other testimonies who have had more severe side effects than those listed from taking metronidazole & alcohol? (1 answer)
    Had 4 beers over 4 hour period on last day of taking Metronidazole. Was vomiting & basically acting totally out of character as in wild & argumentative - similar to being bad drunk. Went to sleep & woke up with basically no memory of what happened.
  • What could be causing eye pain and headacne and bright glaring light on the right side only?
    Senitive to light, can't spend long on computer or cell phone. Diagnosed with anklylosing spondylosis

  • Cdifficile treatment
    I had drug (cipro) induced cdifficile for three and a half years and was hospitalized 3 times and went through absolute hell until my Dr. finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. Even then the first transfer done via a lower bowel infusion didnt work. Two weeks after the first one he did a full colonoscopy transfer going up as high as my appendix and that one worked immediatly and I have had no furthur bowel problems, no diarrea at all and its' now been well over a year. I took every type of cdiff drug imaginable prior to that. I had to stay on Vancomyicin all the time or I would be spending all my time going back and forth to the john 20 or 30 times a day. I was so ill that I could bearly keep my head up. I couldnt eat without an urgent bathroom trip. I had to wear Depends all the time, my skin was raw and sore from constant wiping. I was given Tinture of Morphine to slow me down. That helped some. My veins collapsed from all the test shots and from the many pints of saline to keep me hydrated. My heart stopped from a lowering of my potassium level and I had to get a pacemaker to control my heart rate. I spent a fortune on the drugs,some costing as much as $1200.00 a month, more than I make working and working was rough. I would have to go to the restroom so often and I work outside where there were frequently no facilities. I would have to bring a complete change of clothes and a disinfecting kit with me to cleanup the restroom. I washed my hands raw. You cant leave that for someone else or they might get sick too as it is highly infectious. Hospitals are not that meticulous either. I once had to go to a Long Island Hospital that failed the precautions test miserably. They assigned me to a room with another patient whose family wanted to eat their meals in our shared room and then use the bathroom. I pitched a fit on them and told them no way were they going to eat in that room or use the bathroom. I can't imagine what that hospital was thinking. Anyway you get the idea....3 years of expensive treatment and all I needed was some healthy donor poop and someone willing to mix it up in a blender and put it in syringe and put it up the wassoo and I was done. Dont let them give you all the expensive treatment if you have a resistant case of cdiff, insist on the fecal transplant right off, you will be very glad you did. The donor should be someone in your family, preferably someone young with lots of good flora for digestion. Someone without other gut problems...they need to test them too. Bring it in the afternoon before and Bingo,you will be back on track the next day. I am open to answer questions or be tested orhelp with anything else you might want to know, just ask me.
  • Tingling feet and hands
    I have used flagyl 3 times and after stopping the use of this medication my feet and hands have became so tingly and itchy That its becoming unbearable.
  • Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.
  • Sleep apnea and vertigo
    Previous to Lorazepam, I was taking Mekclezine. Both makes me feel worst longer with vertigo. Usually when I fall asleep without my mouth guard, I get a serious bout of Vertigo for several days and the medications just cause more dizziness and the problem last even longer. I also find when I am under extreme stress, I acquire a bout vertigo as well. I am getting a better mouth guard made because the sleep apnea gets worse, the guard has gotten worn and my air way is getting blocked again, causes lack of oxygen and lack of oxygen causes dizziness. Which means to me one causes the other.
