  • Does anyone get numbness in lower legs after sleeping for 4-5 hours? wakes me up and now advil no longer helping with discomfort
    Not sure if any of my COPD medications are causing my lower leg numbness or if I have an undiagnosed medical condition. I have been taking Spiriva and Advair for at least a year. The numbness seems to wake me up after 4-5 hours of sleep. Recently started using the Proventil HFA inhaler but not every day so not sure if this rescue inhaler is causing lower leg numbness. No tingling or cramping occurring in lower legs. Also stomach seems to be slightly throbbing at the same time but only if lying on either side..do not feel this sensation if lying on my back. Advil used to help me get back to sleep but now it does not seem to be helping this numbness subside. Anyone else ever have anything like this? No numbness during daytime
  • Sciatica caused from simvastatin
    My mom was prescribed simvastatin to reduce her cholesterol. Within a couple of weeks taking it she complained about muscle pain in her back to her doc. Doc said it was normal. She continued to take the statin until the pain moved down her leg to her calf. She had a blood test and the doc told her to stop taking it. She did but the pain is still there (more than a year).
    My mom believes her sciatic pain is directly related to her use of the statin.
    She's been off it for more than a year. Has the statin permanently damaged her?
    What can she do besides the PT that she has been doing?
    Thanks.
  • What are the medicines you can take for a cold or/and flu who is taking pradaxa?
    I am taking all of the meds listed especially the newest drug, Pradaxa, which my Primary Doctor knows nothing about. He said since it is new there is no data out there on other medicines you can use with Pradaxa. I have now got the Flu and he doesn't know of any medication I can take with me taking Pradaxa. What am I to do, just die? Does anyone out there that is taking Pradaxa and had the Flu or even a cold what medication did you take for flu and/or cold? PLEASE WILL SOMEBODY HELP ME!

    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
