  • Is bed wetting part of having syringomyelia
    i also use panadol osteo, mintec, apo-meloxicam. i have wetting the bed is was just now and then but it has started to become more frequent now, does any one else had this happen.
  • Does morphine cause mouth ulcerations
    one month after beginning the drug morphine I developed mouth ulcerations on my mouth palate. My mouth and face has developed soreness and painful pressure.
  • Is osteoarthrisis caused by drinking alcohol
    Chronic pain in spine, right hip, right hand, swollen joints in both hands, swollen knees.
  • Does anyone experience heart palpitations causedby their acid reflux ? (2 answers)
    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.
  • Has anyone had lasting anxiety from taking linzess? (1 answer)
    Felt slight edginess and nervousness occurred while taking Linzess for 3 weeks (145mcg). I stopped taking it a month ago due this side effect, but upon discontinuation, the slight edginess turned into severe anxiety which is now causing high blood pressure.
    Has anyone experienced this?

  • Morphine and amenorrhea
    For over ten years I have been taking high doses of morphine for chronic pain nerve pain. At one point I was taking 400mg of morphine a day. By splitting up the doses I was able to get it down to 300mg a day. My periods stopped almost immediately, even when i was still taking small doses before I was even raised to 100+ mg a day.
    Now I am taking (using) Fentanyl #75 patches plus Fentanyl #12 patches and they work great with no up-n-down from pills wearing off. I have been off morphine and using Fentanyl for almost one year now. I still don't get my period, though. They stopped when I was 43 and I don't miss them at all!! But when I read that there was no link between morphine and Amenorrhea I had to tell my tale...
  • Headache after propofol
    Was given Propofol while having Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. Severe headache in evening and following day.
  • Prostatitis and prostate cancer acceleration due to anaesthetics
    Caught Chlamydia in 1978. Interestingly, the partnered girl's sister worked in an aviary; and I found out later that Chlamydia originates from handling birdshit and birds are the carriers. Chlamydia was undiagnosed at the time, so it was listed under 'Non-specific urethritis'. Chlamydia wasn't named until about 8 years later. I was given tetracycline and told to stay off alcohol and sex. Yeah, really?

    I was 24; highly sexed, and in night clubs and pubs most nights. I laid off the alcohol and after two weeks, I was good. The laying off sex, I understood, because of contamination of others (condoms were little used in 1978 in the singles arena); so I masturbated one night... and that caused me immense in my prostate, and pain and suffering for the rest of my life.

    The ejaculation was extremely painful, and chronic prostatitis started. I was on and off medication for two years. I got light-sensitivity, which means in sunlight, I came out in burning rashes. I became allergic to tetracycline.

    The message? Consultants are generally poor at communicating what not to do, and why not. Lay off sex he said. All he had to say was no sex, no masturbation; or you may suffer for the rest of your life. That would have done it.

    No-one has been able to help me with this chronic prostatitis. In the early years it would come and go, but as the years have gone on, it has become more frequent, and now it is constant.

    Four years ago I went in for major foot surgery, and flat-lined. I was in intensive care for 2 days, on a morphine drip for the pain.
    When I awoke, I knew immediately I was suffering with my prostate. It was aching badly and I was urinating frequently. The nurses were amazed with how many 'bottles' I filled in such a short time.
    For the next few months, I was in agony. I have tried every possible drug going, as well as prostate massage and the indignancy of a urethragram whilst female students were watching.

    In November 2011 I went to see another consultant, who suggested a biopsy. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. After much research, I now know that my diet and lifestyle, coupled with inflammation of the prostate with prostatitis, has caused prostate cancer. Yes, there is a direct relationship between prostatitis and prostate cancer.

    I am now beating it, without drugs and without surgery. I have changed my diet to a vegan diet, no sugar, very little alcohol, and a lot of supplementation.

    In December 2013, I went in for more foot surgery. I was unaware about the morphine at this time, so didn't consider it being a problem. I talk to the anaesthetist, who wanted me to have an epidural (injection in the spine to numb my lower body). At no point did he talk to me about my prostate history.
    In recovery, I sensed a problem as soon as the anaesthetic began to wear off. It was like my prostate and testicles wanted to explode. I knew I was going to have problems. My intuition reminded me of three years ago with the morphine, so I asked the surgeon if he knew of these complications with morphine, but he didn't.

    I spoke to the head of the post-operative ward and asked her if she had any experience of post-operative patients who suffered with prostatitis after surgery, and she confirmed she had. So here was a nurse who knew of the problems, but the surgeon and anaesthetist didn't. This is typical in the health service... the lack of sharing.

    Not only did I suffer with the chronic prostatitis (and still am 11 month later) I was incontinent. It took 6 months of 4-times daily legal exercises to get back control of my bladder.
    For me, morphine has a dire effect on my prostate.

    Bear in mind that your prostate is designed to eliminate toxins, so it is flooded with morphine. I will do my best to ensure I check for morphine in any drugs or anaesthetics in future.

    My first PSA level was 18, 3 ears ago. I brought it down to 13.5, then 10.4, 10.3, 10.9, 11.3, 14.3 and after the last surgery it spiked at 17.5. As a result, I have gone back to a stricter, greener raw diet to bring it down again.

    Oh, and anther tip; you need to get your vitamin D3 blood count above 200n/mols (UK measure) to have any chance of not getting prostate cancer. Mine was 32 when I was diagnosed. Today it is over 200, from supplementation of 10000 ius a day. Minimum in the UK, recommended by scientists, is 75n/mols, and it's too low. OK if you have a great immune system, but not if you want to fight prostate cancer and prostatitis.

    Black African males in the Northern US states and in Europe have twice as much risk, due to lack of sunlight. Sunlight on skin promotes vitamin D3, which is essential for the immune system and production of calcium.

    Black African males need more sunlight to produce the same amount of vitamin D3 as a caucasian male. Also, any male who is bald and fat has a higher risk, so a Black African, obese bald male, has an extremely high risk of prostate cancer, unless they get their immune system in order.

    The main way to fight all this, is on a clean, raw vegetable diet, pure water, no alcohol, sugar, processed or refined food, no meat, no dairy, no vegetable oil, no exceptions, and some breath-taking regular exercise. Just like we did 100 years ago. Go figure! Look at chronic disease studies of 100 years ago. 85% of all disease was from infection. Today 85% is from chronic disease.

    Your prostate eliminates toxins, and today, we are overloading it. Remove the toxins (and the stress and anxiety) and things will improve. It's a hard road; but with it is you want to be healthier and live longer.

    Good luck.
    Glenn.
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
  • Atrial fib and ibs, is there a connection?
    I felt wonderful, after a good night sleep and a nice breakfast. Took my heart medicine. Took off for an hour shopping and the A-Fib began with a vengeance and lasted five hours.

    During the time, interestingly, I had continuous IBS. If I had not used butter (an IBS trigger) on my toast that morning, would have had an episode at all? I wonder if there isn't a connection, one that I might be able to control to some extent. This is worth trying!
