  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Developed symptoms of hyperventation syndrome (need to take frequent deep satisfying deep breaths- not rapid breathing) after hospital stay for flu and possible meningitis. My chest x ray and CBC is normal. One doc tried to tell me this was PTSD/anxiety from post hospitalization. It is not. I am not anxious except for fact that I cannot breath right. I do not have pneumonia. I have never had this before, but I'm even short of breath while talking to people and distracted - still needing to take deep breaths mid conversation. I have never had some of the above drugs before and wondered if they could have anything to do with it. Thank you.

    I am a Caucasian female age 42. On vanco 3rd time for 3weeks this time. First week this time can't breathe normally, stays n cat scan clear, ringing, popping in ears n loss of hearing, frequent urination and way more urine volume. Dr Denys any of these symptoms from vanco as he gives lectures on vanco. I also had kidney function decreases n he says he would prescribe even if kidneys in half failure because vanco is the best! Sending him documents from Mayo saying after 10 days on vanco patients need to be monitored for hearing, kidney and shallow breathing. Maybe he can add to his lectures.
