My Mother was a healthy 89 yr old with no healt issues, she was put on anxiety medicine, which she took regularly. She was also taking Lyric and had just started her Macular degeneration shots. She was prone to bladder infections and we went to the dr. for that, labs showed high calcium, within one week I had to take her to the emergency room, within one day she was on oxygen, within three days she was in the ICU intubated and unresponsive. She remained in ICU for 4 days had renal failure and died two days later.

- 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

- 3 strong drugs together against neuropathic pain
Neuropathic pain debuted when I was 24, now I'm 50. Received diagnosed with Ehler-Danlos syndrome (EDS), joint hypermobility type, when I was 35 years old. So it can take some time to get a diagnose. And as EDS-patient I do not belong to any clinic. Orthopedics says that EDS is not orthopedic, rheumatology says that EDS is not an autoimmune disease, GPs say that EDS is too difficult, and so on. Sooner or later we all end up at Psychiatry, even if we are not depressed.
The first kind of pain I got when I was 24 came from low back, but I experienced as pelvic pain and leg pain. It was clearly a neuropathic pain, but it took years to find out. Later it was treated by a pain clinic with cortisone around the genitofemoral nerves (both sides). Since this treatment didn't result in lasting freedom from pain, the pain clinic started to give me RF (radio frequency) treatment. This made the pain disappeared after one year, and I was 80% free from it between 2002 and 2014, 12 years. The pain doctors said pain could return after 10 years.
The other kind of neuropathic pain started 2003 with intense stomach pain. During 6 months I could hardly eat nothing due to nausea and vomiting. After this 6 months, stomach pain changed to almost unbearable pain in upper back.
What happened 2003, and what all the doctors missed, was that the right lowest ribs slid up over the sternum. This rib dislocation is till there today, but now with a lot of cartilage formed around the rib where it is stuck in the lower end of the sternum. The dislocation is clearly visible on X-ray. This has greatly affected the thoracic spine. I have a scoliosis which I had not before 2003. And I still have severe pain in the thoracic spine.
It was initially treated with morphine daily, and later with Durogesic (fentanyl), but this didn't help much. 2005 I was hospitalized because I had too much pain to take care of myself and my hygiene. After some months the doctors started to give me clonazepam because the muscles along the spine was in a chronic seizures. Clonazepam helped, but I could still have a lot of pain in two vertebrae in the thoracic spine. It felt as if someone drilled into the vertebrae without anesthesia. After a few months, doctors also prescribed me methadone. Then the pain disappeared almost completely. Since 2006, I have eaten clonazepam and methadone every day, and I need to sleep in an armchair to not get more pain because of moving during sleep.
There are side effects. After 1,5 years with clonazepam and methadone I started to have panic attacks. Or rather one long panic attack which didn't stop before I got treatment with amitryptilin and pregabalin (Lyrica). These 2 medicines stopped the panic disorder completely after some hours, and the panic was then gone. Then I got side effects of these 2 medicines, amitryptilin & Lyrica, too. I gained a lot of weight (from 83 to 148 kg) and got much water (edema) in both my legs under the knees and in both feet. The feet could swallow to the double size. 2012 I stopped with amitryptilin and started to loose weight again (in Aug 2014 below 80 kg) and get less water in my legs. Today I eat as little medicines I can, but I have to take methadone, clonazepam and Lyrica every day, twice. If I try to take away one of these 3 medicines, I got pain problems at once. Lyrica is the most painful one to take away. In Sept-Dec 2013 I lowered Lyrica from 300 mg daily, to 150, then to 75 and finally 0 mg. The pain I had was extremely difficult to handle. It didn't help to take more methadone or anything else. I have checked on Internet and found that many people got pain from quitting with Lyrica. Most people start eating it again. So did I. But 2006 and 2007 it was enough to treat the pain with methadone and clonazepam, I got the Lyrica against anxiety not pain. But today I take Lyrica against pain.
Beside weight gain and leg edema, clonazepam and Lyrica significantly affect the sexual desire. And Lyrica alone makes it almost impossible to ejaculate. All four drugs together (clonazepam, methadone, amitryptiline and Lyrica), make one forget all about sex life. You don't even miss it. When I stopped with amitryptiline and lowered Lyrica (still taking clonazepam and methadone), I could suddenly easily get erections again, feel desire, but not getting orgasms. This is quite difficult to deal with.
The pain pattern is greatly affected, by pain and by the medicines. So is the mood. I get something which feels like heavy depression, especially if I take the medicines late that day. I should take a medicine like methadone 3 times a day, because the effects of the tablet lasts around 8 hours. But I take them every 12 hours, to have a low consumption in case doctors prescribe them too late (which happens, and then it's good to have a spouse going to the pharmacy buying them for you, because you have too much pain to go yourself).
Since methadone is also used for treating heroine addicts, medical staff treat you with disrespect when they see that it says "methadone" in your health record. I need to show a certificate that says that I deal with chronic neuropathic pain, that I never have had problems with drug addiction, to get normal respect.
I wanted to share this because I think I am alone in the world with these medicines in combination against neuropathic pain caused by hypermobile joints, joint dislocation and muscle spasms. After trying almost everything else, including surgery cutting nerves, methadone, clonazepam and Lyrica seems to be the only way to kill my pain. But it's a life where you always is questioned, because of the use of methadone. I can guarantee that everybody in the world should accept these medicines if they had experienced the unbearable pain I had in upper back before they started to give me clonazepam and methadone.

- 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.
