  • Melformin and hiccups
    Started Metformin yesterday at 250 mg after breakfast. Severe hiccups for 5+ hours, approx 5 - 10.30 p.m. Very hard to relieve by breathing into a bag and took several tries to stop. Could not stop until I alkalised with Bi-carb soda in water, twice. Started again in the night, about 1.30 am. Took a large dose of bi-carb soda in water to alkalise my stomach and was able to relieve the problem fairly quickly, again by breathing into a bag to deprive the diaphragm of oxygen and increase the CO2 level. Feeling an inclination to hiccups again today and regularly alkalising and so far no hiccup outbreak

  • Polymyalgia rheumatica (1 response)
    Diagnosed 12 months ago with type 2 diabetes - diet controlled. Diagnosed recently with polymyalgia rheumatica. Prescribed prednisone. This caused my blood sugar levels to skyrocket and. Now require insulin injections. Have developed a rash on arms & face. Have tried tapering prednisone dosage but pain levels come back up.

    Currently on 20mg daily. Still have pain in the morning & at night. Am worried about prednisone side effects.

  • Boils vanish after taking micardis
    I was taking Atacand for many years for blood pressure. I suffered boils in my groin for approx 6 years, even having them cut out under a general, and they still returned. Started taking Micardis and they have disappeared, so relieved and happy.
