Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Has anyone with itp been offered or receivedimmunology for severe allergy to grass pollens? if so what was the outcome? our immunologist knows of no-one with itp receiving immunologgy and is fearful.
Discovered low platelets when had a severe allergic reaction to hayfever & subsequent trip to A&E
Hospital Allergy Dr's - Grass Pollens - off the scales. His (my son's) low platelets are caused by antibodies attacking platelets (autoimmune thrombocytopenia). No other cause for ITP found so presumed virus or could also be the inflamatory allergic reaction.
Immunologist scared to give even grazax (orally taken - one a day) and def not quattro injection immunology. Immunologist has said he know of not one single case of immunology and the outcomes on platelett count and ITP and so will not give. has anyone had both immunology who also has ITP?????
My son has now been diagnosed with ITP for 7 months and is very frustrated and we are dreading this new hayfever season, eventhough the immunologist has upped the fexofenadine to start in march.. We are UK. He is on all treatments for hayfever, eye drops, nasal inhalers, sinus rinse, prventers (prevalin). He has been given prednisolone for 1st week after visit to A&E but none since
- Is fexotenadine hydrochloride an amphetamine
just want to know what category this drug comes under before taking same
- Can my eye twitch be because of lexapro?
So I have had symptoms of anxiety and depression due to a lot of stressors and disasters that happened in my life over the past two years. As my anxiety got worse after a breast biopsy, I started freaking out and thinking I may have MS because my sister has MS. So I went to my GP and she decided my symptoms do not follow the symptoms of MS or any similar problem and it should most likely be anxiety. She put me on Lexapro and Clonazepam. At first I was very hesitant to take medication but as my symptoms got worse I decided to give it a try. I was on Lexopro 5 mg for about two months and then I went to 10 mg, and I would take 1 or 2 Clonazepam a day. And this all started 5 months ago. And things seemed to be working just fine.Until about two months ago I started having this freaking annoying eye twitch on my upper left eyelid. I have had eye twitches before but they always go away after a couple of days or a week top. This one has been lasting for 2 months now and seems to be just getting worse. I went to the GP and my eye doctor and they still found no cause and said it's probably stress and anxiety. I have not been overly stressed and I get plenty of sleep, 10 hrs or more! and I stopped taking caffeine and alcohol after the twitch started. Any idea? Could it be because of medication? I also need to add I have had thumb twitching and severe spasms in my muscles around my right thumb starting in May (before taking any medication).

Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 years ago):
I was started on spironolactone for acne, already having been on advair for about a month. Within about 2 weeks on the spironolactone, I noticed muscle twitching. Thinking this was a side effect of the spironolactone, I stopped it, but the twitching has continued. Now I am wondering if it's a side effect of advair?
