Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
    I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
    I am desperate for some relief!
    Thanks
  • Has anyone seen an immuniologist for granuloma annulare, if so what was the outcome?
    I have had granuloma annulare for over a year now. However it has spread like wildfire the last 2 months. It starte out on hands and arms, but is now on 40% of my trunk, back, sholders, legs. I have tried all meds and topucals. I am wondering if anyone has been to an Immuniologist for tretment since it is considered an autoimmune disease? If so, what was outcome?
  • Hypothyroid and herbal supplements
    hello, does anyone know if any/all of the above can be harmful if suffer from hypothyroidism?

    All these are part of one weight loss supplement which I would look to try but I am concerned if there may be any adverse effects
  • I have ibs, diabetes, dizziness and balance problems and sciatica. my doctor has just prescribed medrol for me for my sciatica and spinal stenosis. is this going to be ok for me?
    I have been suffering from IBS since July 15. I am not on anything for it now because I tried taking Bentyl and it made me SO DIZZY I couldn't take it. I went on line and found "helpforibs.com" and it has helped me a lot. Anyway, I now have some sciatica and some problems with some neuropathy and spinal stenosis. I have diabetes that is well controlled - AIc 6.0 - which I can handle with my diet only. I do not have to take any medication to control it. My problem is that my orthoaepedic doctor has just prescribed Medrol for me to take my mouth instead of doing the epideral injection. I am hearing some terribly scary things about Medrol - like problems with blood sugar rising too high and also, it causes big problems with the stomach. Since I am still having problems with the IBS, I am very concerned that I will have some really BIG PROBLEMS with the Medrol. Please give me some advice on taking this. Perhaps I should try something else? Please offer any advice you may have. Thank you

  • Zetia causes deafness
    Took for two weeks and now have complete deafness. This was back in 2012.
  • Tendinitis in both wrist
    Horrible pain in both wrist at the same time.. It started about a month after I started taking it. By the time I stopes it was too late. The pain got worse and worse. I had a Cortizone shot in both wrist and it did get better for a few months. After that the pain returned it was even worse than before. I needed to have surgery on both just. They actually put the tendon on the outside of the bone so that it would not rub against the bone any longer. My tendon was shredded.the doctor even said that it was rare for both to go at the same time.
  • Diarrhea for 4 years on ezetimibe
    Had diarrhea for four years which stopped within 8 weeks of stopping the medication.
  • Mouth ulceration in cozaar
    For painful mouth ulcers caused either by my blood pressure drug, Losartan, or my cholesterol med, Zetia, I rinsed my mouth with warm salt water. The ulcers are healed. I have other side effects but both these drugs cause similar symptoms it's impossible to tell which is causing certain side effects. Starting today, I am going off the Zetia. Losartan helps lower cholesterol AND lowers blood pressure so I am taking it alone for a month to see if the side effects are reduced by cutting out the Zetia.
