- My experience with lyme
(Posted by a 25 year old man who has Cognitive And Psychiatric Disorder, Lyme Disease, Inflammation And Severe Nerve Damage, and takes Doxycycline Hyclate)
My final semester at college-
Woke up to extreme inflammation in what was determined to be a portion of my trapezius on the left side length of my next. It was accompanied by severely swollen lymph nodes throughout my entire body. I went about my day with what to me was seemingly a bad neck cramp and oncoming cold. In the afternoon I decided to participate in Track practice and what occurred after I am unsure about in terms of its relation to me performing physically or an autoimmune response against my peripheral nervous system. The next morning I woke up the left side of my trapezius was completely dysfunctional from its attachment to my cranium all the way down to the mid point of my back. It was accompanied by inflammation and sore pain at the point where the next connects to the shoulder girdle. Over the course of the next 8 months I went undiagnosed with Lyme, having seen neurologists and orthopedics in an attempt to find a solution. Reflecting on the first three months, I experienced significant effects on my emotional stability and cognitive capability. I would have severe mood swings--rage, depression, excitement-- and I would have difficulty with memory and train of thought- all of which can be confirmed by multitude of classmates. By the 8 month mark I had began to feel mild joint pain, particularly in areas I had formerly injured in athletic activity (ankles, lower back). At this point, my accessory nerve had not regenerated in terms of the portion affecting my trapezius, didn't regain any lost muscle function. I saw my physician, who discovered the Lyme infection. I took doxycycline over the next 3 months and saw significant improvement in my trapezius, which was accompanied by a decrease in lymph node size, as proven by comparison of MRIs. My fatigue dissipated and my moods/cognition returned to normal. I've regained about 70% of the function I formerly had with my trapezius (as compared to 0% prior to treatment). I wanted to write this because I have yet to see a similar case, understand the ambiguity of Lyme disease and the array of conditions it causes.
- Symptons from taking doxycyclin
(Posted by a 53 year old woman who has Rash From The Sunburn And Very Itchy, High Sensitivity To Sun, Burned Easily Even With Sunscreen, Cold Tingling On Toes And Hands, Skin Burning Sensation On Hands, Elevated Creatinine Levels, and takes Doxycycline)
I recently went in for a physical, everything was normal except my Creatinine levels. I had severe symptoms from burning hands/knuckles to feeling very tingly like cold needles. Also, burned very easily from sun even with 50 sun screen applied. Should I be worried about the Creatinine levels be abnormally high?
- Flatulence, lactose intolerance, and clonazapam
(Posted by a 56 year old man who has Major Depressive Disorder, Restless Leg Syndrome, Lactose Intolerance)
After taking my first dose of Clonazapam, it seemed my lactose intolerance flared up for 24 hours or more. Flatulence all through the period and watery stool in the morning. Does anyone else find their lactose intolerance triggered by the lactose in Clonazapam?
- Doxycycline/severe sun reaction
(Posted by a 80 year old man who has Virgilio, Severe Burning And Redness Lasted For Weeks, and takes Doxycycline Hyclate)
Was put on Doxycycline for an infection on the surface of my knee.Went to a football game in NC,SEPT.14TH,was in sun for maybe 3-4 hours.I have Virgilio but have been in sun many times with no such burn.Also used 45 sunblock!
Went to doctor following Monday,because of concern for infection,she started a new antibiotic and healing began. I am two weeks now ,into the burn and have large scabbed areas and a continued red,burning skin!!
- I got pneumonia while taking topamax, obvious correlation
(Posted by a 44 year old woman who has Plantar Fasciitis, Trigger Finger, Anemia - B12 Deficiency, Anemia, Malabsorption, Gastric Bypass, Osteopenia, Chronic Pancreatitis, Depression, and takes Klonopin, Ambien Cr, Prilosec Otc, Zenpep, Calcium, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Job's-tears, Vitamin B12, Zofran, Zantac, Zyrtec, Doxycycline Hyclate, Reclast, Venofer, Neurontin, Buspar, Effexor, Dilaudid)
I do not take all the medicines above all the time but I am using an implanted pump giving me less than 2mg of dilaudid per day, 75 mg effexor daily and usually buspar. Dr prescribed topamax within 4 days I was hospitalized with Pneumonia, stayed a week came home a week had a clear chest x ray and the next week I got it again and was hospitalized 9 days that time. I knew I had been on the med but could not remember the side effect that made me come off previously until i started it again 2 days ago and woke today with Pneumonia again. Last time my pulmonologist said that the med in combination with the antidepressant which is all I take right now relaxes me too much and it paralyzes my choking reflex causing aspiration of saliva and ultimately waking up sick as the bacteria laced fluid goes crazy in the moist conditions of the lungs.
