I have never seen someone ask this question but am now wondering the same thing. I have pseudo tumor cerebri AND spondylolisthesis. I have never thought the two could be related especially since I was originally born with spondylolisis but not sure if it all could be related in some way.

Last June my right lower back itched severely. Thought it was going to be Shingles, which I have had before. No shingles. Spread to left side. Up my back. Now the worst itching, constant and warm, is my breasts. Can this be medication related? Nothing has changed in medication for 8 to 10 years and no new soaps. Never perfumes. No new foods. Nothing new except continual itching. I rub on lotion thinking it is dryness. I drink 8 cups water daily or more. (measured) I can sleep at night, but have occasional night sweats as well. This has continued since June 2013. Help if you can. Thanks

I'm a 49 year old female and about a year ago I also was gasping for air in the middle of the night. The only meds I'm on daily is 60mg Armour Thyroid a day. Started with Synthroid around 2002 but did not have any effect. Switched to Armour dosage finally settled at my current. When I started having the gasping fits in the middle of the night, I felt like something that felt like a "film" was across my esophagus. I had been treated for a bought of bronchitis a bit of time before that. I went to the Dr. and was referred to an ENT. He told me that I had reflux and that the coughing had irritated my esophagus. He prescribed one month of Dexilant. That treatment helped and haven't had any gasping episodes since. However still feel sometimes something restricting my swallowing like I have read in other forums on this subject. Wondering now if this is/was a side effect to the Armour....
