had endoscopy and they found i have mild chronic gerd.have to take lower dosage forever.Iam so concerned of b12 defiectencey since i have mild neuropathy feet ae starting to tingle.and have venous insufficentcy wich i heard this meds constrict veins.
- Is it my thyroid or am i mentally ill? diagnosed w/ hashimoto's thyroiditis but untreated - chronic pain unmanaged also (2 answers)
I moved to OR from HI and brought all my records, signed releases, and had many diagnoses, all but the thyroid, was being treated and long-term. I also took Oxycontin & Oxycodone for severe chronic pain from bilateral SI joint fusion (right screw protrudes & leg also becomes numb and weak with activity) & lumbar and cervical degeneration & facet arthropathy. I had volunteered reducing dosage as I'm always trying to reduce Rx intake to alleviate side effects (I am tiny, even for a youth & adult dosages seem to drug me). Next month, it was known that I could not function well because pain was not managed, but needed to resolve it in OR, as moving. OR Drs. refused to return me to higher dosage (taking minimalist Oxycontin 10 mg CR & Oxycodone/Acet 5mg). After being unable to get up to go to bathroom, walk, contacted adult services to see about in home services & possible foster care placement for young son since I was losing independence & failing in general health & cognitive functioning. I was forced to take bottles of OTC Tylenol to function, with Dr's knowledge, & knowing I had past lesions on liver to follow. Several months later had follow up liver ultrasound, & new small lesions found on liver. After emailing dr about from DHS questioning failure to manage my pain vs. conditions that were disabiling, 6 months later, dr told me I was experiencing withdrawals every morning & finally agreed to increase Oxycontin to 15 mg, which has enabled me to tolerate the pain & function. I have been treated as a drug-seeking patient since attempting to transfer my care.
I have multiple autoimmune conditions, most of which I no longer treat with Rx as I have been overmedicated & side effects are too numerous. So I actually am opposite in many ways. I stopped Lyrica, Silenor (sleep), Elmiron, Bentyl, Dexilant. Stress affects me seriously since I had a TBI and experience anxiety stress disorder, which seems to contribute to auto immune responses. But still knew triggers & familiar with self - this thyroid diagnosis & symptoms experienced new & too destabilizing to live.
Diagnosed w/ Hashimoto's thyroiditis after 1/2 thyroid removed Nov 2011; my antibodies are unbelievably high. I declined in thinking, memory, anxiety-unable to think/track, losing most,getting lost driving, sleep very dysfunctional, too emotional, crying easily & often (unusual for me). I feared losing ability to live independently. My maintenance Rx (Silenor, Lyrica) seemed to drug me. I tried to explain to drs. that I needed thyroid replacement hormones that I never had these problems before.
They referred me to a psychiatrist for medicine management consultation, who gave me mental health diagnoses (histrionic personality disorder, somatoform (hypochondria) that discredited me & ruined my medical records for future validity. Is it thyroid symptoms? Was unmanaged pain contributing? Too much Tylenol? What does a dysfunctional thyroid do to a person? How do I get my medical record addressed to reflect accuracy?
- Is it safe to take pravastin while on remicade?
I have just started on Remicade and this drug scares the heck out of me! However it is being used as a last resort as no other medications were bring my ulcerative colitis under control I am very concerned about drug interactions and can't seem to get any straight answers from my doctor or the pharmacist. My main concern right now is can I safely take Pravastian due to being on Remicade? My cholesterol is very high.

- Syntroid and pruritus
I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
- Thrush while on prograf
I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Synthroid and breast enlargement
I have went from a B-C cup size to a D cup in the past 8-9 months.
- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.

I have had a persistent Itching Rash since taking Lantus Solostar. I've used all sorts of treatments for eczema etc. until my Mother looked online and found a very short mention of this occurring in other Lantus Solostar users. The rash is extremely uncomfortable and I am considering stopping use of this medicine due to being tired of it's consequences.
