- Could aleve cause these symptons?
I do not take any medications but have concern that I may be allergic to Aleve. My skin has erupted with hives and rash all over and down my neck .
only thing I take at all is Aleve and I do not take it very often. I took some on Friday night woke up with hives and then on Sunday I took it again and my face was worse this morning not connecting the dots tonight I took it for back pain again (been sewing) and then it hit me it had to be an allergy to something and the only thing I had taken was aleve. I need to know what to do to counteract this.
- Can green tea help with gallbladder symptoms?
Had gallbladder issues for a couple of years. Had a test at hospital. Don't have stones and it is not diseased. Just lazy and not working all the time. Most of the time I can handle it if I watch my diet. Lately bothers me all the time. I also have diarrhea. Not every day but more than I like.
- Does naproxen sodium help phimosis?
I have phimosis and don't know what caused it. I'm diabetic and I was told this is more likely to happen to diabetics but I have been diabetic for 20 years and have never had this before.
- If i have a tooth infection will it cause abnormal sleepiness (1 answer)
I believe I have a tooth infection from a poorly administrated temporary tooth put in before a crown can be put in few weeks. I am unusually sleepy and can nap for hours which is not like me at all. Could it be from the potential infection and poor dental work by the dental assistant causing this sleepiness?.

- Alevert d-12 long term side effects
I took Alevert D-12 approximately 4-6 days every week for 5-7 years.
I know have bad aches pains in my bones, joints and can't sleep well cause I wake up several times a night. I don't have true REM during sleep so I feel tired but can't sleep. When I get off the Alevert for a week i'm able to sleep normally. However I've gotten off for a week's time lately and the aches and pains due to bone/joint inflamation type feeling gets worse. I'm going to try to get off it for extended lenght of time see if the bone/joint aches go away. I'll provide feedback in the near future. I ask the editor of this page to please stay in touch with me via email so I can correspond with continued results and progress. Thank you all for posting and sharing your experiences! This is truelly helpful to everyone.
- Gnc hair skin and nails gave me a severe rash and hives
I've been using GNC Hair Skin and Nails tablets for about a month and I burst out in a severe rash and hives on my hands, arms and neck. My hair didn't grow much of a difference and my nails, though they were stronger,kept breaking after a few weeks.I discontinued taking the tablets about a week now but the rash has not improved much. I will advise others to go natural and forget these tablets that offers you miracle results because there is always a catch to it.
- Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.
- Aleve and erythema multiforme
I started exercising (walking outside)and due to sore knees I started taking Aleve. Within days I developed blisters on my chest, back, face, and inside my mouth. Mouth blisters were severe enough that I could only consume liquids. After 7-10 days the blisters scabbed over. This occurred three times within a two month period, the last time I had blisters around my eyes with physician concern of eye involvement but it did not happen. During the second round I went to a dermatologist and he determined that I had Erythema Multiforme and the cause was either a strep throat or Aleve. A second opinion determined it was Aleve partly because strep throat is not normally associated with EM. I have stopped taking Aleve and am EM free for 15 months.
- Allergic to ivp dye bad reaction to pyridium
I am allergic to IVP dye (Iodine) I had discovered this over 20 years ago when I had kidney stones and was injected with the IVP. I was asked beforehand if I was allergic to shellfish and told them I didn't know since at the time I had never eaten seafood. After the injected me and walked out of the room my throat swelled and I couldn't breathe, hives formed I had to grab whatever I could to throw around the room to get someones attention. They rushed in and gave me a shot of adrenaline. WHEW!! I had taken Pyridium on many occasions in the following years with no problems.Last night I took one and had a SEVERE reaction. I think the problem is I had not eaten much in 2 days and the iodine hit me HARD! :-/ first I started itching allover, had what looked like small mosquito bites all over my arms, My hands swelled and I felt hot then I had what felt like heartburn, chest pains right between my breasts and deep down that would come and fade ALL NIGHT and to top it off I was on a date! This morning I feel fine. I had taken about 4 tablespoons of Benadryl and later chewed some aspirin thinking heart attack!! :-/
