- Why would naproxen be chosen above other anti-inflammatory drugs ?
I had Kidney stones Years ago and they were removed over 18 months slowly by monthly appointments for Lithotrypsy ( Ultrasound ) Over all this time I had a jj Stent tied off from inside my Kidney to inside my Bladder ( To keep Kidney from blocking again ) In the years since then I have sufferred intense pain in Kidney region and have ben told there are now cysts in my kidney. Occasionally these cysts burst and bleed thus blocking my urethra with clot.
- I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
- What causes ideopathic polyneurothopy if not diabetic? (3 answers)
Numbness in ball of foot. Started on one right side and progressed to both. EMG indicated Ideopathic Polyneurothopy. Pre diabetic with A1C of 5.8 - only one reading ever exceeded diabetic criteria at 6.6. Started 6 months ago with slow progression. No pain, minor tingling. Not constant but progresses during day if working and wearing dress shoes(weekends much better). Eases quickly in evening with no shoes and only stocking feet but does no go away. Feeling is not so much numbness as it feels like sand under balls of feet, swelling (no real swelling) or bunched up sock. Again, no pain but very annoying. Dr (Neurologist or Family Dr) do not seem concerned.
- Has anyone had tingling in hands, arms, feet, legs from lisinopril that did not go away when they quit taking it? if you got rid of the tingles, how did you do it? (2 answers)
After 9 months on Atenolol I started getting tingling in my left hand. Also had a pulmonary embolism. A doc switched me to Lisinopril and the tingling moved to my legs, feet, both hands and arms. My calf muscles are very tight and my legs ache. Plus dizziness and other things. After 3 years of going round and round with doctors and no one finding anything wrong with me, I found posts about Lisinopril and tingling and I quit taking it. But the tingling and aches have not gone away. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know how to fix it??? I get nowhere going to doctors, they find nothing wrong with me. Thanks

- Numbness and tingling in legs and feet from zyvox
I had a staph infection 10 years ago and was hospitalized for 6 weeks. While in the hospital I was given several antibiotics intravenously, and eventually was given Zyvox. When I was released the Dr. prescribed Zyvox, and I continued to take it for about 6 months. One morning I woke up and my feet and legs were numb and tingling. I stopped taking it immediately and told my doctor. She agreed that I should have stopped taking it, and that was the last that we talked about it. I had to stop seeing the doctor because I didn't have insurance, and still don't. That was about 10 years ago!! I still have numbness and tingling in my legs and feet!!! I'm assuming it is permanent. Is there anything I can do??

Comments from related studies:
From this study (13 months ago):
Valium eased the milder symptoms that had been happening for a few years but adding the Buspar triggered something. It happened several months ago and since then I have problems consuming ANYTHING that alters serotonin levels. The doctors don't believe me but after 20 years on these kinds of drugs, I know better. I don't know if it matters if I put this here, but maybe someone is reading and can help me or maybe my insights might help someone else...
From this study (1 year ago):
Have constant pain in knees, feet, toes, hands, arms, neck and back. Cannot sleep because I wake up constantly with shooting pain in neck, feet, knees, including tingles and numbness. Left side is worse; includes some drooling and paralysis at times. History of colitis and recent IPIN neiplasms found in pancreas head, neck and tail with dilated bile ducts as well as dilated pancreatic ducts and swelling of gallbladder. Constant nausea, off/on vomiting, major pain in neck and back, as well as abdomen which has included constant pain in upper right and left rib cage area. Knee pain has increased dramatically, especially while sleeping (??). Migraine history severe; hospitalized many times and is constant. Hx of anemias, malnutrition, malabsorption, fecal incontinence, low mono#, low eosinophil, high Granulocyte and Gran %, low Vit C, Low Vit B6, Low Lymphycites, High Baso%, High Baso#, Low WBC, Low Transferrin, High Cardio CRP, Positive ANA, High GGT, abnormal fecal fat, hypoalbuminemia, low calcium (always), low anion gap, low protein...many labs always abnormal, could go on...always fatigued and in pain.
From this study (5 years ago):
I am convinced that all of this is a direct result of either the H1N1 or taking Tamiflu 75 mg. I have been to several hospitals and doctors and no one can tell me what has happened it is almost like having a stroke or TIA.
