Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have classic hemochromatosis and p-vera disease what should i expect
    I wonder what my prognosis is for the future I am 62 years old and have lost muscle mass. I also have a very enlarged spleen. I have p-vera disorder and classic hemochromatosis
  • Palpitations after taking meds
    took my meds last night with in 5 mins my heart rate shot up to 140 bpm an lasted for 15 mins before it came down
  • What's the cause of heart palpitations
    E-fib or irregular heart beat, more noticeable at night. Have been on hormone replacement since 1995. Started on the patch that caused irritations then switch to 1% Androgel packets. Used 1/2 a packet per day for years, then libido dropped and started using full packet. Everything going good until I started using 25mgs of zinc some months later I started having heart palpitations.
    Stopped androgel and zinc, heart palpitations stopped after 2 weeks, almost afraid to start up again!
  • Could my occasional a-fib be caused by amlodipine?
    My a-fib comes and goes. A year ago I was having episodes occasionally, usually related to either caffeine or alcohol. After I stopped using either my a-fibs disappeared for 9 months, then in September I started having them again, suddenly increasing this month to 3 times per week. I have been taking 5 mg of amlodipine besylate per day for 7 years. With my cardiologist's permission I just recently reduced my dosage by half since my blood pressure was occasionally very low. Could the reduction in dosage actually have triggered the increased frequency?
  • Can unexplained hypertension be cause by a partial thyroidectomy?
    Doc is trying to figure out why the BP suddenly spiked. I started an exercise regimen after a stress test. I had to be on Metoprolol just to pass the test. Results were no heart-related issues. Lost 6lbs. since starting exercise and don't know if this is Thyroidal or not. No discussion with the doc yet of whether this is related to the thyroidectomy of the past.

  • Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
    I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.

    Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
    I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.

    Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion

    Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.

    I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.

    I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
    It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.

    I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear

    Anyone else?
  • Bloody semen after taking amlodipine besylate
    Was started on Amlodipine Besylate 11-13-14. Now -not quite three weeks later- I have bloody semen (Hematospermia)ranging from light pink to dark red. It was fine, and normal before. I feel it is the medication causing this.
  • Amlo dipine and terazosin
    I have taken combination since 04/13 I have experienced ED lower testosterone and elevated PSA. Prior to that I was taking terazosin and hydrochorizide without any side effects. I stop taking the amlodipine during a juice fast and my PSA levels decreased when I stopped fasting and returned to taking the amlodipine my PSA levels rose.
  • Palpitations when eating raw garlic
    After symptoms of a cold, I've been drinking the famous "garlic honey lemon" mixture to try to get rid of the cold and it actually worked pretty well.
    The first morning it didn't feel very nice to drink but I was ok.
    From day 2, I started to feel heartburn and heart palpitations, with a sort of headache as soon as I drank the mixture. Symptoms then disappear within a couple of minutes and I was fine for the rest of the day.
    This has been getting worse every morning, until this morning (day 5) where I had to kneel down and focus on breathing.
    I can't drink it anymore, my chest hurts and it gets quite scary.
    I usually don't eat a lot of garlic anyway, I don't really like it. I'm assuming it's the garlic creating the reaction, as lemon and honey are part of my daily diet.
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
