- Cdifficile treatment
I had drug (cipro) induced cdifficile for three and a half years and was hospitalized 3 times and went through absolute hell until my Dr. finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. Even then the first transfer done via a lower bowel infusion didnt work. Two weeks after the first one he did a full colonoscopy transfer going up as high as my appendix and that one worked immediatly and I have had no furthur bowel problems, no diarrea at all and its' now been well over a year. I took every type of cdiff drug imaginable prior to that. I had to stay on Vancomyicin all the time or I would be spending all my time going back and forth to the john 20 or 30 times a day. I was so ill that I could bearly keep my head up. I couldnt eat without an urgent bathroom trip. I had to wear Depends all the time, my skin was raw and sore from constant wiping. I was given Tinture of Morphine to slow me down. That helped some. My veins collapsed from all the test shots and from the many pints of saline to keep me hydrated. My heart stopped from a lowering of my potassium level and I had to get a pacemaker to control my heart rate. I spent a fortune on the drugs,some costing as much as $1200.00 a month, more than I make working and working was rough. I would have to go to the restroom so often and I work outside where there were frequently no facilities. I would have to bring a complete change of clothes and a disinfecting kit with me to cleanup the restroom. I washed my hands raw. You cant leave that for someone else or they might get sick too as it is highly infectious. Hospitals are not that meticulous either. I once had to go to a Long Island Hospital that failed the precautions test miserably. They assigned me to a room with another patient whose family wanted to eat their meals in our shared room and then use the bathroom. I pitched a fit on them and told them no way were they going to eat in that room or use the bathroom. I can't imagine what that hospital was thinking. Anyway you get the idea....3 years of expensive treatment and all I needed was some healthy donor poop and someone willing to mix it up in a blender and put it in syringe and put it up the wassoo and I was done. Dont let them give you all the expensive treatment if you have a resistant case of cdiff, insist on the fecal transplant right off, you will be very glad you did. The donor should be someone in your family, preferably someone young with lots of good flora for digestion. Someone without other gut problems...they need to test them too. Bring it in the afternoon before and Bingo,you will be back on track the next day. I am open to answer questions or be tested orhelp with anything else you might want to know, just ask me.
- Tingling feet and hands
I have used flagyl 3 times and after stopping the use of this medication my feet and hands have became so tingly and itchy That its becoming unbearable.
- Cfs/fibro, migraine
A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
- Flagl helped my depression

- Pain in the neck and arthritis after taking generic fosamax
I started taking Generic Fosamax about six months ago and last week i had a terrible neck pain and spasm. I went to my accupunturist and he did accupunture and massage, but the pain did not go away. Later that week, I noticed that I had a lot of pain every time I flexed my left knee, and later that same day it started to sweell, like in people who have rheumatoid arthritis. I took my last dose of Generic Fosamax last Fryday, and I am wondering if it is the cause of my ailments. I am a healthy person, I exercise regularly and always eat healthy. I wwent again to my accupunturist yesterday and he ordered an Xray of my knee. I would like to know if somebody has had my problems while taking Fosamax and how they got cured. Excuse my English, it is not my main language. Thank you.
