  • Why do my gums hurt especially at night?
    I got my teeth whitened a year ago and my gums have been hurting ever since. The pain gets worse starting in the afternoon and by the time I go to bed they are killing me! My dentist said it's not from the whitening. He had the nerve to tell me it was psychotic. Has anyone else had this problem? It is NOT gum disease.... Would appreciate some advice or similar stories so that I can be assured I'm not going crazy...

  • What are the benefits of topamax, does it work well
    I am medication sensitive and have severe side effects with Bi-polar meds. I have severe anxiety/panic disorder, hypo-thyroid, PTSD, and Bulimia when anxiety hits. I must take Zofran in order to eat and keep food down. I was on Topamax and it seemed to help with my eating disorder but caused memory lapses, so they discontinued it. I was on Effexor since 1997 and it stop working last year. I have tried Cymbalta, Tileptal, & Wellbutrin with major side effects that caused me to go to the ER. I have been on Paxil & Clonazepam for about 2 wks. My systoms are not as severe but still get panic attacks. the Saphris makes me hungry 24/7 which is not good because of my eating disorder. Does Topamax work well for migraines & prevent constant hunger, especially for sweets & carbs. I am suppose to be on high fiber, lean meat, low carb diet but my hunger for sweets & carbs is uncontrollable. Does any one have suggestions or feed back.

  • Migraine with dyazide
    Took Dyazide for blood pressure escalating due to Cyclosporine. Have history of bad migraines but have not had them routinely for many years. Within 24 hours of starting treatment with Dyazide, severe headache began that lasted throughout the day and eventually led to ER treatment. Was told to no longer take Dyazide, headache did not return. Was 49 at time of ER treatment and was on Dyazide for 1 week.
