  • How often is parkinson's disease confused with chronic lyme diseasse?
    Back in the early 1950s I had the joy and privilege of spending a couple of summers on Cape Cod. As a kid, a lot of that time was spent playing in the grove of poplar trees and bramble behind the house. I clearly remember numerous buried tics, some of which resulted in a circular ring around the tic sites, some with a rash.

    A year later some strange things began: high fever, life-long right-side tendency for tonsillitis, persistent 'mononucleosis', poor memory, low energy, and migraines which eventually became the scourge of my adult life. All that hidden under a blanket of high emotional stress caused by life-altering changes in the family.

    2010: diagnosed with well developed Parkinson's Disease (PD).
  • I have tried several meds for my rls. first i tried mirapex , then gabapentin and now on sinemet
    Have tried ropiranole type drugs, Mirapex, went to gabapentin, now on Sinemet Cr. Feeling depressed, gaining weight, and not getting relief thru the night. Take trazodone to finally get sleep. Worried about side effects of Sinemet CR 25/100 need to take 2 or 3 at night to get relief. Also taking iron supplement. Anybody else have suggestions?
  • Type of medication for stomache discomfort from aspirin?
    Is there over the counter medication for this symptom?
  • Flomax does not help with frequent night time urination maybe not bph but nocturnal?
    Tried many and costly prostate related products to no avail. Dr says prostate only marginally enlarged but hard. Could not urinate at all after taking postoperative codein based pain meds. Wonder if nocturnal is a separate and differently medicated condition

  • Positive interaction of casodex and saw palmetto
    July 2011: biopsy Gleason 7 for 2 of 24 (large number in Japan, done in a surgical room). Lupron + casodex (1 mont injection). PSA slowly declined. Minimal side effects, except for being horny for the first 10 days. Next was 3 months, side effects of severe night sweats and flush, but manageable. PSA below 1. Continued for 3 months, but severe sensitivity in breasts and other side effects made life so miserable, I stopped Lupron, but continued Casodex for a few more weeks. Found a British study that showed on/off treatment was maybe even better than continuous Lupron/Caodex. PSA 0.05 when stopped. Rose to 3.9 over the next nine months. MRI showed reduced prostate size and no lumps, but went back to Casodex for a few months. PSA below 1, so stopped again for a
    few months. Repeating cycle. Taking Doctor's Best Prostate Formula (with my doctor's nod (no harm, waste of money). But I found urination became easier.
    Now take saw palmetto in the morning and Doctor's Best at night. Even better results, no sweats, no hot flashes, but very surprising happy side effect, which has cheered my wife very much (and me, too). Much, much better than the time I tried Viagra and others after the biopsy, and at 2 cents a pill vs $20, a real deal. Good luck to all.

  • Lavaquin and chills
    I started this yesterday, his treatment for a heavy cough, and an hour later, chills became so heavy that I got into a tub of very hot water, for relief. Took another one today, and the same thing happened after an hour as yesterday. I was already in a hot bath, and the chills came anyway, somewhat alleviated by the hot water. Unless something persists, this will be my last post, as I do not intend to continue this medication.
  • Heavy sweating during sleep
    Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.
  • Did you recover from bph? (1 response)
    For unknown reasons my BPH symptoms have gradually disappeared. I was taking Doxazosin for 2-3 years but it never seemed to really help. I stated taking Saw Palmetto about a year ago.

    Gradually over this summer my BPH symptoms faded to almost zero.

    I'm not ready to claim that the Saw Palmetto did it but I really just don't know.
  • Saw palmetto in prostate pills
    i got very dizzy when I got up to urinate in the night after taking ultra prostate a couple of days... I returned the product
