Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I am taking losartan so can i also take methimazole for my thyroid
    I found out I was allergic to Lisinipril so they put me on Losartan now that I found out that my Thyroid is over active they have put me on Methimazole will these two together cause an allergic reaction?
  • Does anyone experience heart palpitations causedby their acid reflux ?
    I have had acid reflux/Gerd for 4 years + Was not believed that symptoms were real for a while as had no heartburn and a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia which even now some medics think is imaginary...it's NOT!!! Following a demeester score of 45 ( very high confirmation of acid reflux) and discovery of a large hiatal hernia, ( a classic physical cause of acid reflux) I had hernia repair operation and LINX anti reflux surgery. Throughout the four years a major symptom of my acid reflux were heart palpatations. They started at the same time I started with reflux and cleared up after the surgery. I have been reflux free palpitation free and antacid free for four months. then I was put on Gabapentin for back spasm and the reflux returned along with the palpitations. Medics keep insisting this is just anxiety yet eat a food that gives me reflux also starts the palps which is the indicator of the reflux as I do not have heartburn. Comes on when relaxing and eating watching tv ( no anxiety present) and when I am sleeping peacefully ( no anxiety present) my heart wakes me up and fires off into tachycardia. Recently a doctor has said it is now known that acid reflux irritates the nerves in the solar plexus area and that triggers the palps. Anyone else experienced this? Are there any studies on it at all? Thanks all.
  • Why is my left ankle swelling? my doctor says it is from the graves disease
    HELP! my doctor took me off of my beta blockers and now my left ankle is swelling again? She says it is just my thyroid receptors. I don't think its that clear cut
  • I was treated for overactive thyroid with methimazole, thyroid levels now lowered was directed to stop methimazole, have been off methimazole now for 3 weeks, but my blood pressure is still 224/117 (1 answer)
    I was recently diagnosed with overactive thyroid, no nodules or cancer, I had all the symptoms that you could have. Heart palpitations, high blood pressure,hand tremors, anxiety, wgt loss, muscle aches, weak legs and diarrhea. I was treated with methimazole for the overactive thyroid and inderal for the heart palpitations, ativan for the anxiety, and clonidine 2-3 times a day if systolic blood pressure is over 180. After 3 weeks my thyroid levels have returned to almost normal and was directed to stop taking methimazole now and to follow up with endocrinologist in 6 wks. My concern is that my blood pressure is still very high 224/117, I had lisinopril 5mg added to my medicine list, but doesn't seem to be helping, I am also taking the as needed clonidine 3-4x a day which doesn't seem to be helping much either. I am wondering if anyone that has had hyperthyroidism with secondary hypertension and was treated with methimazole..if after stopping methimazole continued to have high blood pressure?
  • Diagnosed with tonsilitis but very light sensitive
    Hi,



    My 19 year old daughter was diagnosed with tonsilitis yesterday. She has the sore throat, swollen tonsils with white on them. Glands are also very swollen with a lot of trouble swallowing and headaches. What is most odd is the puffiness above and bleow th eyes and the extreme light sensitivity, something the doctor didnt say might happen. Temperature seems normal.



    Do you think we are seeing normal tonsilitis symptoms still?



    Thanks for any assistance,

    John
