- Raspberry ketones - side-effect of red face, face muscle twitching
Whenever I use Raspberry Ketones 500mg capsules (1 a day) I get reddening of the tops of my cheeks coupled with muscle tightening/twitching of the cheek muscles closest to the nose (the muscles that contract if someone blows in your eyes) and the muscles at the bridge of nose at times too. Both sets of symptoms last for a day, then to be repeated again the next day on taking the next capsule. Whenever I cease using the product the symptoms likewise end. They began occurring from the very first use of the product. They are sometimes accompanied by a very low-grade headache. I thus now no longer use the product, plus the product made no difference whatsoever to my weight gain/loss when using it daily over several weeks.
- Losartan potassium headaches (1 response)
I avoided going to the doctor for years and decided it was time to bite the bullet. The bullet bit back. High Blood pressure and cholesterol. Doc prescribed me 100mg Losartan Potassium right out of the gate. At 33 years old, this concerns me. I've been on it for about a week and have had a constant moderate headache along with some slight dizziness/foggy feeling. I also noticed some ringing in my ears a few times as well. Going back to the doc today. My pharmacist says they usually start people on lower doses than 100 mg. Anyone else dealing with something similar?
- Still ill after several years (1 response)
I became ill several years ago.
It all started with a head cold that lasted a few months and left me with Tinnitus and chronic sinusitis.
After a nose operation and many visits to the doc and hospital, I am no closer to felling better or being cured.
My doc gave me Beconase Aq at first and this made me very unwell, causing me fatigue which would last for a few days. I'm still searching for help.

Mary on Feb, 8, 2013:
2 years ago I was bit by a tic, had 5 eye surgeries, pulled a 100 pound trash can down a dirt road with potholes and my arm distorted behind me and my ex husband pulled a shotgun on me and I barely got out alive. One of these things started my conversion disorder or all of them. I have a trembling right arm and my thumb sticks straight out and twitches constantly. I have cervical stenosis and my neck hurts so bad and I also have issues with my spine in the c-5 region. My doctor could care less that my arm is trembling and ignores my complaints. I have had this trembling arm for 2 years. 3 neurologists said I had parkinsons but finally a 4th neurologist took over an hour with me and said I do not have parkinsons, I have conversion disorder with cervical stenosis and radicopathy. They are sending me to physical therapy as if that is going to cure anything.

All this seems like nothing compared to what they have me on and its not several doctors it all comes from the same one. During the day I am on oxycodone, fentyl, klonapin and ativan. At night I am on trazadone, seraquil, temazapam and more klonapin. I never feel hight or out of sorts at all. Maybe my body digests it different. I seem to be the exception here.
