  • I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
    I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
  • I injected suboxone and now i feel weird this is not the first time i done it but the first time my arm is numb all over dizziness purple pinkish splotches all over my arm wat is wrong
    I shot an eighth of suboxone today and now my arm is purplish and red blotches there was no pain during or after injection only numbness dizziness and I can't get my nail nd to go to white it stays red this has never happened before.
  • Can xeralto and an antihistimine cause dizziness, shortness of breath, tiredness, etc.
    I also take a blood thinner, xeralto, for a-fib. I have been using a mouthwash of an antihistimine antacid mix for a day and a half.
  • I have a little lightheadiness after 4 months of sertraline 50 mg is this normal
    Hi had a panic attack last fall.. Been on 50 mg sertraline Split my dosage 25mg at 6 am then the other 25 at 10 am.. Headaches have not been as bad but still a little lightheaded is this normal?
  • Can urinary retention cause severe dizziness and lightheartedness?
    I had a kidney infection for 1.5 months diagnosed in August this year it took 2 lots of antibiotics to kick it but now I am left with SEVERE urinary retention I had a cystoscopy which only lasted for 24 hours it was done when I was awake so I think that it wasn't very affective by the next morning I was again in agony with lower back pain and pain around my kidneys. I had to swap consultants I am seeing my new one tomorrow but now I am suffering with severe urinary retention I pass urine 1-2 times a day I try to go if my bladder feels full I can be sat on my toilet for 20 mins and its just a few drops so I get bad lower stomach pain too from the pressure as I cannot go properly. My consultant gave me Cefalexin but my GP was very wary giving it to me as I am only 24 years old and they don't usually give it to women.

    Does urinary retention cause bad dizziness and how can I help the symptoms because the back and kidney pain along with the lower stomach pain keeps me up for most of the night I am getting about 4-5 hours sleep I work as a nanny so I am constantly feeling exhausted

    Thank you

  • Lyrica is giving me nightmares
    I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
    But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.
  • Ulcerative colitis from avastin
    Developed ulcerative colitis four days after Avastin injection in eye for myopic degeneration.
  • Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
    Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
  • Avastin and low potassium
    I was put on Lasix twice to try to get rid of the swelling in the calf and foot of my left leg--then another water pill. Neither was successful. Recently I saw my geriatric doctor who examined the results of recent blood work. He asked me if anyone told me my potassium was low. Then said Lasix could cause that. ? Now I read that Avastin can cause that as well.

    This is the second side effect that could be from Avastin.

    I'm a type 2 diabetic who has had one blood clot in that leg. What, exactly is happening to that leg? Am in danger of having it amputated?

    No doctor has provided me with enough information. I don't think my geriatric doctor knows. My podiatrist said I had a weak pulse in that leg when I told him it had not been checked in two years!
  • Avastin--swelling of leg and foot--macular degeneration (2 responses)
    I had my first shot of Avastin for Macular Degeneration in April 2014. My left leg and foot began swelling so much that I was sent to the ER. Doctors thought it was another blood clot, but it was not.

    This is December and the swelling is worse.

  • no i am not genetically predisposed for these conditions and all blood tests done with embolism causes have come back negative. majority of effects began with taking Remeron and Prazosin combo. was not diagnosed at all for high blood pressure for Prazosin Rx, actually had normal bp. after getting off Prazosin because of complete disorientation and blackouts, continued on Remeron and continued to get worse and worse depression with thoughts escalating to suicide. doctors have been very difficult in regards to this matter because they have so many clients on this junk and they do not want to lose their kickbacks and holidays from the drug companies but all i hear at the hospitals from other patients is how shitty and how many physical health issues occur while on Remeron/mirtazapine. there needs to be more medical awareness in regards to these products and the research needs to go far beyond "newest is best" mentality. my life is ruined because the prescribing doctor did not even want to monitor as directed for over a year and a half and did not want to heed medically apparent warning signs because it is not spelled out clearly enough that they have to be responsible for their patients conditions. now i run into an issue where my work compensation claim is being denied in regards to the physical side effects despite the recent reports from eHealthMe and FDA because the insurance company claims that there is not enough evidence and no definitive direction from the drug companies. only positive, am now slowly begining to lose weight since extremely hard battle while on remeron/mitazapine including near starving self to stop gaining weight. does anyone have any idea as to how to deal with this with a shortened life span and lifetime Rx for warfarin now demanded on top of possible surgeries and multiple procedures? is there anymore reports or doctors that understand what is going on as i am recieving pressure to continue on again with more antidepresents? what are the official list of "blood dissorders" referred to in the data and medical references about remeron/mirtazapine? is sleep deprivation and nightmares even an authorized/indicated use for Prazosin and if not why are psychiatrists and docs really pushing it for such a use? i am upset but any help with info would be great as i need to know how to deal with my current conditions and i believe the only way to do that is to reach a complete understanding about what went on before i am talked into drugging up a again with medical staff that does not want to acknowledge or educate about side effects and greater potential harm?
