- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.

From this study (3 weeks ago):
Took nyquil one night and woke up with my left hand all swollen. Have been on predlsone for four weeks for an upper respiratory infection. Could this be from the prednisone or the nyquil?
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Tingling aND swelling of hands and feet.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Was put on metoprolol in October but discontinued for 5 days due to adverse affect and not being sure which med caused it. Began taking metoprolol again after 5 days of being off of it. Switched at that time from lisinopril to losartan 25 mg a day. Had no problems other than the inside of my mouth swelling from the metoprolol. About 2 weeks ago the metoprolol was increased from 12.5 mg to 25 mg. I now have angioedema and the dr says it's the losartan but I fully believe it's the metoprolol.
