    Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!

  • Furosemide - joint pain
    I went for my 6 months regular check up for my Atrial Fibr. on Dec. 15. The Dr. said everything is fine. I should have left it at that, but I told her my feet and ankles are puffy. She increased the furosemide pill from 20 units to 40 units. I must say I had been taking furosemide for a couple of years at the lower dose and had never once in all that time noticed any significant improvement in water retention. It never seems to make any difference whether I was taking it or not. So I started the higher dose.

    About 3 - 4 weeks later, my back, and legs started hurting. That went away and my shoulder was hurting - then my left foot was painful and swollen and I could not get my left boot on. Then that subsided and my right knee became painful. I can only limp. and the back pain has spread right through to my upper stomach. For a week or so, I could not wear my winter coat because it was too heavy on my shoulders. That seems to have subsided now and the pain is mostly in my upper stomach on the right side as well as my left foot. My foot is not as acutely painful now as it was. If it continues at this intensity it will not prevent me from doing anything. I just wish my upper stomach was not hurting. It's like a little hard knot in there.

  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
    the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR
  • Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
    Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
