Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Why would i get copd since i never smoked?
I have several autoimmune disorders, I was shocked to get the COPD diagnosis since I have never smoked but I had second hand smoke first 23 years of my life.
My doctor said my Autoimmune Hepatitis and Primary Biliary Cholingitis set me up for COPD.
- Seizure after an epipen injection (1 answer)
I am allergic to EVERYTHING, so I usually pre-game with benadryl and wait out the uncomfortable side effects, but this time my tongue started swelling up and I was having trouble breathing so I went to an ER. About 5-7 minutes after they injected me in the thigh with an epipen, I was in mid sentence when I started having strange sensations and tremors all over my body. The injection spot, which is incredibly sore and feels like they hit my femur) suddenly became very warm and I could feel it spreading out quickly. I could hear people but I couldn't speak, everything clamped up, I couldn't breathe and I felt very confused and forgot what I was about to say to the nurse. The doctor caught the tail end of it and claimed I was having a panic attack! I heard both the nurses say that they thought it was a seizure. This happened to me once more a few yrs ago with an allergic reaction, but it was from the nurse pushing in the benadryl too quickly, which made my hands curl up like T-Rex and my eyes rolled back into my head. Is there such a thing as being allergic to epinephrine or has anyone ever experienced a seizure/stroke like reaction after being administered Epipen or Benadryl ?
- Dr. switched me from advair and spiriva to tudorza. shouldn't i still stay with advair
Doc said drop Spiriva AND Advair and start exclusively on Tudorza.
Wouldn't staying with Advair in addition to Tudorza be helpful?
(Or would it decrease Tudorza's effectiveness?)
I'm just finishing a 3-month bout with lung Pseudomonas infection. I'm regaining my strength, but still breath much more poorly upon (even minimal) exertion than before the Pseuomonas.
Tudorza seems as equally effective as my Advair and Spiriva regimens did, but I still run out of breath much sooner than I did before the Pseudomonas hit.
Will I ever regain my prior abilities? Should I combine ADVAIR with TUDORZA?
- Is it possible for me to stop taking advair without getting short of breath (1 answer)
I take these meds everyday the singulair I take one a day and the Advair I take twice a day. I take vitamin C on occasions. I do not feel bad but there are times when I have bad indegestion. Also my face is getting very round and I would like to know why? Is there any way I can maybe stop taking the advair? is there an alternative med
- Can thyroid problems bring on anaphylaxis often?
70 yr old previously stong female: Suspicious of thyroid problems...family history. Fatigue, skin, hair changes, slightly swollen, tender tongue at all times. In the last 6 months I've developed food related anaphalaxis. Getting serious, 3 E.R. runs in last 3 months....packing 2 epipens at all times. Endocrinologist apt not until mid December. I can't seem to stay clear of anaphalaxis long enough to get to the Allergist's for those blood tests.
Any one else gone this route?

- Happened to me- allergic reaction to rogaine
Within the first week of usage, I began to have leg cramps, facial swelling, tightness of breath, chest pain, anxiety, and chronic headaches. Even with allergy medicines and aspirin, nothing seemed to help. At first, I felt it was though it was just simple allergies until I woke up one morning with my face so swollen that I could see my skin around my eyes without looking in a mirror. My throat began to swell to the point it was difficult to swallow. I immediately went to the ER to receive a shot and sleep all day with Benadryl. The following day, I have redness in the skin and hoarseness. The doctor told me too never touch Rogaine again or I would end up in the hospital (or worse).
- Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
- Advair could have caused current dark circles around eyes
I have had asthma my entire life. I was introduced to advair during an asthma study when I was 16 I think. I have been on the medication ever since. I am 27 now and have been off Advair 250 for almost 7 months now. Lately I have been experiences very dark redish circles underneath and around my eyes. They get darker and lighter depending on my mood I guess. I did not have this problem prior to ever being on this medication. Does anyone else have similar symptoms or story? How do I make them go away?
- Cephalexin 500 mg caused allergic reaction (1 response)
I developed a rash that quickly turned to painful, itchy blistering after taking cephalexin 500mg capsules for only 2 days (the prescription was for 10 days). The rash was on my hands, legs, back, & arms. I was sent by my doctor to the hospital emergency room. diagnosed as an allergic reaction to cephalexin. treated with steroids & another antibiotic. this was one of the scariest episodes of my life. I hope people are reporting this type of problem.
- Treating copd and kidney disease (1 response)
My biggest problem is trying to keep my blood pressure at 110 to 140 diastolic and controlling constipation.
