- Can urinary retention cause severe dizziness and lightheartedness?
I had a kidney infection for 1.5 months diagnosed in August this year it took 2 lots of antibiotics to kick it but now I am left with SEVERE urinary retention I had a cystoscopy which only lasted for 24 hours it was done when I was awake so I think that it wasn't very affective by the next morning I was again in agony with lower back pain and pain around my kidneys. I had to swap consultants I am seeing my new one tomorrow but now I am suffering with severe urinary retention I pass urine 1-2 times a day I try to go if my bladder feels full I can be sat on my toilet for 20 mins and its just a few drops so I get bad lower stomach pain too from the pressure as I cannot go properly. My consultant gave me Cefalexin but my GP was very wary giving it to me as I am only 24 years old and they don't usually give it to women.
Does urinary retention cause bad dizziness and how can I help the symptoms because the back and kidney pain along with the lower stomach pain keeps me up for most of the night I am getting about 4-5 hours sleep I work as a nanny so I am constantly feeling exhausted

- Palpitations when eating raw garlic
After symptoms of a cold, I've been drinking the famous "garlic honey lemon" mixture to try to get rid of the cold and it actually worked pretty well.
The first morning it didn't feel very nice to drink but I was ok.
From day 2, I started to feel heartburn and heart palpitations, with a sort of headache as soon as I drank the mixture. Symptoms then disappear within a couple of minutes and I was fine for the rest of the day.
This has been getting worse every morning, until this morning (day 5) where I had to kneel down and focus on breathing.
I can't drink it anymore, my chest hurts and it gets quite scary.
I usually don't eat a lot of garlic anyway, I don't really like it. I'm assuming it's the garlic creating the reaction, as lemon and honey are part of my daily diet.
- Diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome after mirena
After getting the Mirena put in, I got really sick. I went home and got super dizzy, nauseous, and tired. I felt so sick and could barely function. I called the doctors office and they said it couldn't be from the Mirena. She said that I must have the flu. Well, I kept it in for a little while longer. I then started losing my hair. I went back into my doctors office because they thought I was experiencing the symptoms for the Mirena going through my uterine wall. The ultra sound was fine. She reassured me that the Mirena could not be the cause of my complications. So, a week a later I went to another doctor to have the Mirena taken out.
Never quite felt like myself and a year later I got diagnosedI with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, after a tilt table test was performed. It's weird to me that my symptoms started almost immediately after the Mirena was put in.
- Prednisone side effects (1 response)
Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.
- Lantus and gastroperesis
My husband for 10yrs was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic. Nov 10/13 he was admitted to hospital DKA blood sugar got to 38...severe vomiting, flu like symptoms, high blood pressure. During his stay he was put on insulin, nova rapid 3 times per day and Lantus. Over the coarse of him becoming sick, he had lost quite an amount of weight...during his hospital stay he went as low as 128 pounds from 165/170 lbs. Nov 20 released from hospital, now on insulin...for near three weeks he was doing well, eating, blood sugars were coming down and trying to scale the insulin. Dec 19/13 this all changed, vomiting, nausea, chest pain, weakness, constant hiccups, burping and extreme tiredness. I took him to emerg was told was most likely the flu. Dec 26th back to emerg due to vomiting 12 times per day, put on iv and tests were done, abdomen ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, etc all came back fine. Dec. 29 back to emerg same thing this point we were told could be gastroparesis. By the time Jan came same symptoms he had at this point been on blood pressure pills twice per day, stomach med's which they give cancer patients, taking 2 times per day and tecta once per day. Jan17/14 we finally had appointment with the endo...to discover his blood pressure was extremely low, now being weined off this medication. He did regain a bit more energy, could stand normal but still not eating much. We figured this was the answer, however to find it was not the vomiting continued etc and the sleeping, feeling cold all the time etc. weight still not going up much as food would not stay down. March 17/14 admitted to hospital where we were told gastroparesis. A scope of the stomach had been done prior and was clear. The nausea continued and was put on domperidone 3 times per day, and tecta once in the morning. This elimated the extreme vomiting however nausea sleeping, under weight, heartburn, etc continued. Frustrated we wanted a referral out of town which we have just went to, ct scans are going to be done and continue with the tecta and domperiedone...we have questioned numerous times since Dec/13 and for the last 7 months could it be the insulin, and many times were told no very unlikely. June/14 I again doing research on the internet stumbled across a forum where patients were blaming the lantus. Exact symptoms like my husband....at the end of our rope I told him to not take the lantus that Thursday night, monitor is blood as soon as he gets up. After a nights sleep blood sugar was 7 and he felt good. Normally around 10 am would start to feel nausea, this did not happen. He kept taking his pills for the stomach. After two weeks of the not taking the lantus ...he is eating, gaining weight, energy, no cold feeling, no heartburn etc. Now we decided to go off the pills, he now has his life back....he is able to resume a full day work, finding at night harder to sleep as he has more energy. For 7 months I watched him fade away to nothing where quality of life was nil, and not one medical professional even questioned the insulin. He continues to take the nova rapid 3 times per day, blood pressure is normal and no pills, blood sugars are under 10 still. More research needs to be out there for patients, the side effects listed do not even mention the symptoms he had. The binding agents? could they be the cause? There is NOT enough information on this drug,listing severe side effects. He did not have swelling or itching etc on the injection site. It took a frustrated wife and husband to take a chance on a gut instint and glad we did...
- Seizure disorder med problems (1 response)
Velafaxine 150 mg. 1 per day.
In process of switching from Topiramate 50 mg. 1 pill in morning & one at night (going off of this because of kidney stones) Was on this medication approximately 10 years.
Lamotrigine 2 25mg pills in morning and 2 - 25 mg. pills at night.
On the 3rd day of the 2nd week of switching I started the nightmares. I took a one hour nap and had a nightmare that seemed like it went on the entire time. Even if I slept for 20 minutes I had a dream or nightmare. I've sometimes been known to have vivid dreams but never this constant in my entire life. Also, very seldom do I have such terrible dreams. So many in one evening. They are an occasional thing, not an all night long thing.
Also, I have sinus trouble occasionally. The same day the nightmares began I got a terrible headache behind my one eye and under my eye. I have no drainage yet anyway. Not sure if this is during the start up of this medicine, but if I had known it could cause trouble with sinus I would never have started it.
I was put on this as a quick back up plan when the medicine we agreed upon - Levetireacetam made me feel drunk feeling and I had to be careful just walking around my homes and steps.
