Female, age 52 but noticed numbness in the ball of the foot area 3 + years ago and since that time has gotten gradually worse to the point of burning and pain. I had gotten 2 corizone shots in my left foot and 1 in my right and didn'
t seems to help much at all. For the last 3 months I am on what is called WSN nerve formula food... full of Vitamin B's and it really relieving and progressivly helping the symptoms of the Neuropathy. But I feel the Neuropathy had been caused by the Hydrochlorithiazine that I had been taking for 12 years prescribed to me for reducing the calcium in my urine to not get kidney stones or to help them from not forming.

- Hydrochlorothiazide and frontal fibrosing alopecia
I took Hydrochlorothiazide for almost a year to prevent kidney stone formation. Ten months later, I went to see a Dermatologist because I was having problems with my skin. I had lost all of my eyebrow hair and most of the hair around my facial hairline and my hair was thinning on the rest of my scalp. I was diagnosed with Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia and was informed that Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) can cause this disorder, which is a variant of lichen planopilaris. This disorder causes permanent hair loss due to scarring of the hair follicles all around my facial hairline. The hair I have lost will never grow back. I was advised to stop taking HCTZ.
- Hydrochlorothiazide made me pour sweat
Hydroclorothiazide made me absolutely pour sweat for two years. My doctors could not find out what was causing the problem. It took little exertion for me to start dripping sweat. My hair would be absolutely soaked...especially in the summer, but if I was cleaning house in the winter also. I finally did my own research and proposed to my doctor that HCTZ was the problem. He did not agree with me, but agreed to let me go off of it for a short time. The profuse sweating stopped almost immediately.
- Excessive menstrual cycle bleeding??? here's a possible answer! (1 response)
I take Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg and Atenolol 50mg daily for high blood pressure. I have had every exam known to man and all blood work and test results come back clear with no indications of a reason as to why my pressure is high. Needless to say, I take the meds and my blood pressure is controlled. I went to the dentist yesterday to have a filling replaced, the doctor gave me a novocaine injection, did the work and I was out of there happy as a pig in mud. The doctor did not ask if I was on my menstrual cycle and today I realize why he should have. I have to use the restroom every 15 minutes MAXIMUM, to change my sanitary napkin and release the blood that has accumulated in my vaginal canal. Wearing a tampon is not even an option! There is no pain however it is so gross. I once took 2 excedrin while on my cycle and had the mini version of what is happening now. Needless to say, the combination of hydrochlorothiazide and novocaine should not be mixed especially during your menstrual cycle.
- Loss of voice and stomach issues

From this study (18 hours ago):
I have been having bladder contractions every 6-8 weeks over the last 2 years. I have been to an urologist who has looked inside the bladder and said it looked excellent. I have also had many urine cultures done which have come back negative. I have seen my GI doctor who just prescribed nortriptline to help calm the colon thinking this would help the bladder. I do not have colon pain. I have also seen an obgyn who gave me a vaginal cream to possibly help the bladder. No one seems to know what is causing the pain. I do have some urine retention at times but no burning while urinating. I am now wondering if it is a side effect of one or more of my medications. Thank you
From this study (5 days ago):
I was taking another pill that was half Lisinopril and half hydrochlorothiazide. The doctor said the Lisinopril was making me cough, so he changed it to 25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide. I felt a little relief the next day and then it started getting worse. A week later I felt like I was getting sick and the cough got even worse. It's been going going on for about a week. I only take half the pill and I was only taking half of the other pill.
From this study (1 week ago):
Have had bad heartburn after I started taking hydrochloithiazide .
