- Mirena causing infected ingrown toenails?
I've had mirena for 3 months and I've already noticed regular joint stiffness even after brief periods of rest. To boot I've gotten several ingrown toenails on each foot which is very unusual because I've not changed anything in my hygiene and I've never had ingrown toenails before mirena. It's quite painful and I have at least one ingrown toenail on each foot.
- What causes ideopathic polyneurothopy if not diabetic? (3 answers)
Numbness in ball of foot. Started on one right side and progressed to both. EMG indicated Ideopathic Polyneurothopy. Pre diabetic with A1C of 5.8 - only one reading ever exceeded diabetic criteria at 6.6. Started 6 months ago with slow progression. No pain, minor tingling. Not constant but progresses during day if working and wearing dress shoes(weekends much better). Eases quickly in evening with no shoes and only stocking feet but does no go away. Feeling is not so much numbness as it feels like sand under balls of feet, swelling (no real swelling) or bunched up sock. Again, no pain but very annoying. Dr (Neurologist or Family Dr) do not seem concerned.
- Has anyone had tingling in hands, arms, feet, legs from lisinopril that did not go away when they quit taking it? if you got rid of the tingles, how did you do it? (2 answers)
After 9 months on Atenolol I started getting tingling in my left hand. Also had a pulmonary embolism. A doc switched me to Lisinopril and the tingling moved to my legs, feet, both hands and arms. My calf muscles are very tight and my legs ache. Plus dizziness and other things. After 3 years of going round and round with doctors and no one finding anything wrong with me, I found posts about Lisinopril and tingling and I quit taking it. But the tingling and aches have not gone away. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know how to fix it??? I get nowhere going to doctors, they find nothing wrong with me. Thanks

- Numbness and tingling in legs and feet from zyvox
I had a staph infection 10 years ago and was hospitalized for 6 weeks. While in the hospital I was given several antibiotics intravenously, and eventually was given Zyvox. When I was released the Dr. prescribed Zyvox, and I continued to take it for about 6 months. One morning I woke up and my feet and legs were numb and tingling. I stopped taking it immediately and told my doctor. She agreed that I should have stopped taking it, and that was the last that we talked about it. I had to stop seeing the doctor because I didn't have insurance, and still don't. That was about 10 years ago!! I still have numbness and tingling in my legs and feet!!! I'm assuming it is permanent. Is there anything I can do??
- 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.
- Mirena and the paranoia
Okay, I will get one thing straight, I DO love my IUD. Luckily I'm one of the ones where it doesn't fall out of me or migrate. It stays put and does it's job.
I know there have been endless reports of symptoms. I will admit, I have a few of the more common ones, such as false pregnancy symptoms, or cysts, but recently, a new symptom has developed.
I've had my IUD for just a little over a year now and a few months ago, I had a horrible paranoia and anxiety attack. Let me give some examples in what I mean.
When I'm feeling "normal", I don't really care what my S.O does in his spare time because I DO trust him and I know deep down that he's faithful. Every other month, it seems that my hormones act up and I go into panic fits when bad thoughts come to mind and I misinterpret almost everything he says and think that he's now suddenly against me and I freak out.
I know many people are probably thinking that I'm just having trust issues, I'm really not, let me explain more. He can say the same things one day, and I wouldn't care, and the week (yes, my paranoia seems to last a week or two) I'm anxious, he can say the same thing and I'll panic to the point of passing out. And it's not just him, this goes for my friends, or coworkers. I begin to think that they're all changing when in reality, it's me that's acting different. Again, it's not immature trust issues, I got bad paranoia. I couldn't eat, I couldn't focus. I only focused on the bad and made up thoughts in my head of being left by him or betrayed by my friends, I would get very dizzy and shaky with my muscles aching. My pulse would be calm for a bit and then it would shoot back up as I got panic attacks.
Luckily my S.O is patient with me and helps me through it, but the first time this happened, it scared me beyond belief. After my paranoia stopped, I reflected on that week and thought "My God, did I seriously freak out over that??" it seems to happen a bit before my period or after.
Let me also say that I've been on the pill for years and none of this happened. It all started around a year of having Mirena and I've looked up that paranoia is a VERY possible side effect. I will say it HAS frustrated me because every time it stirs up a paranoia episode, I feel like a child being backed into a corner with my anxiety. Again, I still know and trust my S.O and friends, but the paranoia fogs my mind and hijacks my emotions to where a simple text that usually means nothing to me, makes me panic, "Omg!! omg!! Why are they texting them?! Why did they say that to me?!! It's not normal!!". If my real personality could jump out during the episodes, I would be smacking myself silly.
I use Mirena as a birth control, but if this keeps up, I may abandon it ASAP but I have to find another solution, so whenever my S.O is able to get a vasectomy, I'm probably getting this IUD removed. Again, it does a good job, but it's getting to the point where these horrible panic attacks aren't worth it.
I'd like to know if anyone else has had similar paranoia or anxiety attacks when having Mirena.
- Diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome after mirena
After getting the Mirena put in, I got really sick. I went home and got super dizzy, nauseous, and tired. I felt so sick and could barely function. I called the doctors office and they said it couldn't be from the Mirena. She said that I must have the flu. Well, I kept it in for a little while longer. I then started losing my hair. I went back into my doctors office because they thought I was experiencing the symptoms for the Mirena going through my uterine wall. The ultra sound was fine. She reassured me that the Mirena could not be the cause of my complications. So, a week a later I went to another doctor to have the Mirena taken out.
Never quite felt like myself and a year later I got diagnosedI with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, after a tilt table test was performed. It's weird to me that my symptoms started almost immediately after the Mirena was put in.
- Reaction to methylpred
I have a severe case of poison ivy for which I was given Prednisone. Still suffering 1 week later went back to doctor (was at 2x/day at that point) and was then put on methylpred 4mg PAK. Today is my second day on this. First noted tingling on my insides in my trunk area this morning, later in arms and hands and numbness in my tongue. Weird internal feeling. Now I itch and tingle.
