  • 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

  • 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.
  • Jaw pain with avastin
    My sister is currently taking Avastin and after each treatment she has sever jaw and tooth pain and pain in her lower abdomen. Her oncologist said that this medicine does not cause pain that she needs to see a dentist and will not give her anything for the pain.....
  • Mucinex dm and advil congetstion

    Hi, have you been successful in finding anything to help stop the vertigo? Over a year ago I stopped the depo and have been suffering with very bad anxiety and vertigo since?

    SBanks on Aug, 13, 2014:

    I was an otherwise happy, healthy, physically fit long distance runner, professional – working, 35 year old until mid-Dec 2013 I received the Depo Provera injection. Two days after receiving the injection I woke up with bad attacks of vertigo, that until this day – mid-Aug2014, remain. They emanate from the back of the head, the temples and the forehead. They are always there, but vary in intensity from mild, through moderate and at times severe. Driving is the worst – the vibrations in the car often cause it to become moderate-severe, as well as during bleeding/spotting. When it is very bad it is like someone sticking vibrating tuning forks into my head (veins/nervous system). The only reprieve I get is when I am asleep. It is now mid-August 2014 and I am suffering from the same, horrible symptoms. I can only do mild training. I cannot complete a race because of the vertigo sensations. It is beyond frustrating. When I am in a group of people it is hard to concentrate on a conversation. During training (running) it is very uncomfortable. Even when walking it can be very bad like moving up and down on the waves of an ocean. I have seen many specialists - neurologists, ENTs, gynaecologist, acupuncturists, massage therapists, vein specialist, kinesthiologist - but they cannot determine the cause nor cure of the vertigo, and all say they have never come across a case related to receiving the depo provera shot - but around the time of the injection nothing else caused any trauma, I was happy, healthy, stress-free and fit. My inner ear, brain and neck have all been tested and are fine (no MS). The vertigo is ruining my life. I can still work, but I am limited to mild exercise, limited social activities and my relationship is suffering as a result. It is causing me great anxiety and stress, as I cannot get rid of it. I am spinning constantly. I would do anything to stop it.
