  • Diverticulitis and pain/swellingin lower extremities
    When ever I have had a bout of diverticulitis not only do I experience the normal symptoms but both me ankles and feet will swell to the point of being unrecognizable.I also have severe pain in my knnes. To the point where I cannot bend or hold my weight I mentioned this ? to md he wrote it off. Why
  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
  • Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
    Dentist [2] tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
    Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
    Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
  • Depakote er affected by grapefruit
    I have taken Depakote ER for since 2005 for epilepsy. Once stabilized many years ago seizures and auras have not been bothering me. Until I recently ate three grapefruits over three days. After a few days, when the grapefruit cleared my system, the seizures and auras ceased. Therefore, grapefruit does affect how Depakote ER acts on your system.
