  • Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)
    (Asked by a 44 year old woman who has Insulinoma, Pancreatic Abdominal Resection, Neuropathy - Facial, Neuropathy - Brachial Plexus, Neuropathy Peripheral, Muscle Cramps, Cataract Surgery, Strabismus, Aorto-duodenal Fistula, Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumour, Antiphospholipid Syndrome, Lupus, Posterior Spinal Fusion, Bone Degeneration, Osteoarthritis, Bradycardia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Islets Of Langerhans)
    SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!

    Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
    I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

  • I have bile reflux. can i take questran the same day as i take gaviscon?
    (Asked by a 60 year old woman who has Bile Reflux Due To An Open Pyloric Valve, and takes Cholestyramine, Gaviscon)
    I have struggles with this since march,2013. I had my g.b. removed apr 30, 2013. A scope in June show my pyloric valve wide open allowing bile to reflux giving me much uncomfortable to say the least. The dr would like me to take questran twice daily for 1 month to give the valve a chance to heal. My question is: can I take gavisconinbetween the doses of questran for comfort?
  • Can heat exhaustion and sensitivity to heat be caused by lisinpril?
    (Asked by a 55 year old man who has Heat Exhaustion, Cramps - Muscle, and takes Lisinopril, Pravachol, Amlodipine, Nexium, Baclofen)
    i am having extreme sensitivity to heat. i have been on lisinopril and pravistatin for about two months. all the other meds i have been on for about a year.i used to live in Houston,Texas and i am a mechanic and have worked in the Houston heat and humidity for over 30 yrs. and have never really been affected by it like i am now. we moved to northwest Arkansas a year and a half ago and i did not experience the heat sensitivity last summer and it was way hotter last summer than it has been so far this summer. the past two weeks the temp has been in the high 90's and low 100's. this past week the heat exhaustion started on Wednesday. any input would be appreciated. thanks in advance.
  • Does anyone take remicade for crohn's disease and have problems with kidney stones?
    (Asked by a 37 year old woman who has Muscle Cramps, Crohn's Related Arthritis, High Blood Pressure, Kidney Stones Composed Of Silica, Crohn's Disease, Kidney Stones, and takes Remicade, Clonidine, Phenergan, Procardia Xl, Lisinopril, Metoprolol Tartrate, Lortab)
    I have had kidney stones since I was in high school and was diagnosed with crohn's disease 3 years ago. I am having trouble with my treatments. The remicade leaves me so exhausted that it usually takes a good two days to recover. I have been on remicade since September 2010 and now receive double the dosage every 6 weeks. I am not in remission yet and it is so frustrating. I have tried all the other drugs including humira and 6 months of chemotherapy. I just don't know what to do at this point. The kidney stones are starting to wreak havoc in a major way again. This last round of stones were in both kidneys and usually I produce calcium oxalate and uric acid stones, but now they are completely composed of silica. I did a bit of research and silica stones are extremely rare. Less than 1% of kidney stones are silica. I would greatly appreciate some advice if anyone else is suffering the way I am.

  • Allopurinol and muscle cramps
    (Posted by a 72 year old woman who has Muscle Cramps, Hypertension Controlled, Cholesterol Controlled, and takes Aspirin, Lopid, Lisinopril, Aldactone, Allopurinol)
    Approximately 5 years ago I developed gout and my physician prescribed allopurinol. After a period of time I began to have muscle spasms in the calves of my legs at night. My doctor gave me a prescription for restless leg syndrome, which helped for a short time. I was then given a different prescription when that one no longer helped, and finally a third prescription, which did not work either. The cramps continued to grow more severe and more frequent. I was also having extremely severe cramps in my left hand, to the point that I could not straighten my fingers for several excruciating minutes. Although the cramps in my calves had lessened significantly, my toes were starting to cramp severely.



    I stopped taking allopurinol about a month ago, and since then I realized that my hands and toes were cramping less and less, and now it is almost completely gone. I inadvertently stopped the allopurinol and I lost the bottle of pills and didn't realize it until I went to refill my pill box that holds a month's supply divided into daily doses. I searched on the internet and found that muscle problems are not uncommon for some people taking allopurinol.
