  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Kenalog injection nightmare! (1 response)
    First weird symptom started with a mild sore throat that turned into swollen throat that felt like I had an obstructed airway.
    Then about 2 weeks after that I had a period that lasted on and off extremely heavy for 3 weeks
    Then I noticed a large indent on top of my right butt cheek
    Shortly after that a dreaded yeast infection.

    I had no idea that all of this was a result of the injection I received until I tried to find out why I had this indentation on my butt!!! I'm soooooo angry! This will cost me thousands to have fixed, never mind what other afflictions I might get in the meantime!!! :(

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I have a history of pituitary brain tumors (one as an infant, surgically removed and treated with chemo, and one at the age of 7 treated through radiation). I had another brain tumor (miningeoma behind the eye nerves) that has led to these latest bouts of headaches and my rethinking of my health. I have always struggled with weight and am on every hormone replacement due to the effect on my pituitary. I am currently on a mostly vegan diet, which I have generally enjoyed but am starting to reevaluate.
