  • I have been on Vivitrol since 10/2012, on Lasix since 4/2013
    My hip and leg pain is worsening and my daily life is effected by this pain. I walk differently d/t the pain, I can't exercise without pain. Is it due to the monthly Injections of Vivitrol that they alternate Right/Left in my back side. Not sure what the long term effects of Vivitrol are, but I certainly have become more debilitated since I statred recieving these injections

  • Had an emergency appendectomy in February with complications.... have lived with joint, muscle pain most of my adult life. Constant stomach problems from a young wage. IBS, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite. Feel like I am basically a failure, unable to keep a permanent job. Marriage is on verge of divorce, my family thinks it's all in my head, and that I cause this or even like to be a I. That I do it for attention, or mainly bc I am not responsible. I do not like discussing with family bc I feel misunderstood & like a. Broken record. I want to participate in life , if I don't I am criticized , if I do I pay the price. With either "pain" or comments like " well you did this "
    I feel scared, alone , but mostly hurt all over, including heart ache!!
    It's very confusing and will definitely make you think you are crazy at times.
    Was told yesterday I had fibromyalgia & vasculitis . Going to have blood test tomorrow .

    I had those same symptoms and they discovered a parathyroid tumor. Check out the symptoms for that. I was told I had fibromyalgia for years and lived in pain. Now it is gone and I feel much better. A sestamibi parathyroid scan will tell you for sure even when the parathyroid blood test comes back normal. Usually with this you have a high blood calcium as well.

  • I lost a lot of time during a 9 month period, I can't remember what I said or did. I'm being brought up on charges of writing prescription medications after my Controlled License expired. I forgot to renew it. My husband thinks that I've lost it. I couldn't remember how to do the simplest things. I thought it was my thyroid. It is enlarged but my labs came back back normal. I finally found some relief after reading an article in AARP a couple of weeks ago about drugs that can cause memory loss. I stopped taking the carvedilol right away. I'm feeling better already but I hope it clears more. I was looking for information. Many of the sites about carvedilol and memory loss are gone. It appears that there is a cover up concerning this drug. Many doctors won't admit that it can cause memory loss. The drug sites say nothing about memory loss. And a couple of sites just state that memory loss is not a side affect of carvedilol. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
