I stopped taking Simvastatin because we thought this was making my lip swell on one side and lower cheek. Switched to Crestor and having the same problem but it spreads up my face into my ear area. I had been taking a Statin for some time, over a couple of years. Nothing new in my medications. Very strange. Any comments??
Hi everyone, Thank you for letting me join your group. My name is Mary, (Mary1016), the major illnesses I suffer with is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/RSD, small fiber peripheral neuropathy diagnosed with biopsy two weeks ago. I was told the neuropathy was already severe and the thing to do now is get me to a neurologist that specializes in pain medicine. Couldn't get an appointment until November 4th and am having great difficulty waiting. I'm going for another ketamine treatment this Sunday October 2nd. I was told by Columbia University after a failed lidocaine infusion, to go back to the ketamine doctor even though it made me start peeing blood. I don't have a lot of information on sfn. I want to basically know how long somebody usually lives when the Polyneuropaypthy is severe already. When my doctor gave me the results he hugged me for a long few minutes and told me basically not to loose my faith in God and to promise I won't take my life. I made those promises but I need to know how much worse this can possibly get and how long do people usually have to suffer. Thank you for taking the time to read:-)
