Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I take Prozac for depression, Atenolol Chlorthalidone for hypertension, and Valium as needed for stress. I also Vasovagal when stressed, which is becoming more frequent as I get older. Can I take a Valium in preparation for stressful situations, or does that exacerbate my tendency to Vasovagal under stress?
From this study (6 months ago):
1. Have taken Levoxyl sodium for 20 years.
2. Levothyroxine does not help hypothyroidism and causes odd symptoms (inability to stay awake, particularly in the afternoon; sleep paralysis; audio hallucinations while asleep, hair loss)
3. In November of 2012 diagnosed with high blood pressure for the first time in my life; 150/67 spiking to 190/67.
4. January 2013 through March 2013 through diet and exercise loss 33 pounds.
5. March 2013 through October 2013 maintained stable weight loss of 33 pounds.
5. January 2013 through October 17, 2013 blood pressure stable at 123/65 - 131/65.
5. October 2013 changed to Synthroid when Levoxyl was recalled and my supply on hand ran out.
6. Within 9 days blood pressure up to 150/67 to 161/67.
Wondering if change from Levoxyl to Synthroid had impact of increase in stable lowered blood pressure.
From this study (13 months ago):
I receive cortisone injections. I always thought the discomfort in my side left upper adbdomen was due to old duodinal ulcers. After the last medro / lidocaine mixture injection to shoulder, it seriously aggravated the area and never went away this time. Usually I get a bit of tenderness and fever but only for a week or so post injection. This last injection was Feb, the symptoms came on again about one week later and have progressed. When it is most inflamed it seems that my blood pressure is elevated. I always had good BP before these injections as well. I did not tell my doctor of the side effects as I needed the injections to help with the pain in the shoulder. (The pain always got better for about 14-20 days post injection, as this stage of the shoulder issue, I take whatever I can get versus being miserable and terrible to live with all of the time, so it is likely my fault for not telling the doctor of the side effects of the left upper abdominal region. A bit concerned this time, as this time I can see the swelling, that is what made me come to the conclusion that it is an enlarged spleen. what are the best home remedies to reduce an enlarged spleen. I have no health coverage for it, and would rather die than make my families life more difficult.
