- With a history of squamous cancer and pilonidal cyst and neuro issues should i be concerned ?
I have had a long history of bleeding from above anus, neuro issues like brain tingle and cognitive movement disorder, lumbar pain and weakness, buttock, groin, leg tingling and weakness. Cold feet. Anemic. My concern is this bleed from previously repaired pilonidal cyst has been chronic for years. My research indicates squamous cell cancer is an 80% causative factor in chronic pilonidal irritation/cyst. Since I was diagnosed w squamous nail bed in 2012, amputation 2014, should I be concerned. ? Doctor is unaware of cyst / bleed history. I am obese, but remarkably losing weight ... Loss of appetite. I am positive for esophageal metaplastic changes. Also urinary incontinence mild. Obviously I am concerned about metastatic cancer. No pain in lower spine. Just constant leg and buttock ache / tingle. I thought bleed was hemorrhoids. Not. Ca the mortician ?? Lol. Thanks for any input.
- Can augmentin cause caridac arrest 2 days after stopping taking it?
Augmentin and Cardiac arrest - My husband (46) always perfectly healthy, took Augmenin 875 for 4 days after a dental treatment. 2 days after completing taking it, while running 6 km on the beach in the early morning, he collapsed with a Cardiac arrest (ventricular fibrillation). Luckily he was saved by a doctor with a defibriallator who was nearby. All the tests they run in the hospital show that his heart is very healthy and that he doesn't have any heart diseases. They are suggesting "Brugada Syndrom" but I'm not convinced. His late mother had a terrible allergy to Augmentin and almost died from it and his late father also had an allergy to Penicillin, so does his sister. When I suggested that the Augmentin might be the cause which led to the Cardiac arrest his doctors said it's not possible. I'll be glad to hear your opinions. Thanks, Michele

- Can my symptoms actually pinpoint a cause/condition? (1 answer)
I would just like insight on this. I'm on pain management right now, but it's just to manage the pain. Every thing else has really been not taken serious by any physican it office I've been to. Is this normal stuff many woman go through? I'm just sick of feeling like this between the constant pain & the daily having to pluck hairs it's insane. I'm in fantastic shape(used to be double my weight & now I'm 100lbs), the best looking I've ever been with a incredibly good looking husband & a wonderful family. My issues seem to detour a lot of things & while I'm young I'd like to get this solved or some type of solution to even maintain myself, not looking for a miracle, but would really appreciate answers.

Used for an endoscopy prep, great for what it does but gave me horrid and vivid nightmares
- Augmentin triggered polyneuralgia and ruptured achilles tendons
In 2011 I was prescribed 2 ten day runs of Augmentin 875 mgs. for a persistent sinus infection. Within a day of the last dose of the antibiotic I began to have strange deep agonizing pain for no apparent reason. The first pain was when I was blow drying my hair. I turned my head over and down when suddenly I had an excruciating pain in my neck. My upper arms began to ache as well. Within an hour or two it went away. This type of pain continued for several days and I went on a regimen of Vit. C and lots of fish oil. It subsided. After several days I was napping with my arm over my chest. When I awakened I had the same excruciating pain in my hand! It felt like someone had pounded me with a baseball bat. I told my husband to take me to the ER, and I am not one to run to the ER for anything. He became very upset and then I thought, what are they going to do for me in the ER? I slammed my hand on the table, "No! This is NOT happening" That day I literally took an entire bottle of fish oil, 10 caps at a time, with Vit. C. The pain left and never returned. However, about 3 weeks later I developed ruptured achilles tendons in both legs. It made walking almost impossible. The orthopedist stated I needed to have surgery. I put it off for a long time, bought a pair of Croc shoes and after 5 months the ruptures healed by themselves. I have been told that only surgery could fix them. About 2 months ago I read about the side effects to flouroquinolone antibiotics and was flabbergasted to see that all of my symptoms with Augmentin were similar to the side effects to drugs like Levaquin and Cipro! I never associated the ruptured tendons as caused by Augmentin, but now I believe that it was a result of using this antibiotic. The ruptured tendons can occur weeks after the use of antibiotics. I maintained a healthy diet as well as continued using anti inflammatory supplements like fish oil and Vit. C
- Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
