- Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)
SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!
Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

Nikki on Feb, 5, 2015:
I am a 36 yr old female. 5'8 109lbs. I've battled anorexia since age 9. Up until I was on gabapentin I had no former heart problems. I was recently put on baclofen 5mg effexor 37.5 abilify 2.5 mg and was already taking gabapentin 300 3× daily. I had been diagnosed with thoracic cervical stenosis at c5 needing decompression surgery. The week before I had been scheduled for a breast biopsy which they cancelled because while taking the gabapentin alone I started having chest pains and the occasional fluttering in my chest. After taking my final dose the evening they started me on the three new meds I started feeling sick to my stomach, my internal temp rose,I was shaking and sweating. My heart started racing by 10:30pm. When I would try to sit up the headache I had was so severe the only relief came from laying my head down. By 2am I started having vision problems. Since that night I have palpitations daily and my bp has dropped from where it has sat for 13 yrs at 120/80 to 90/53. Hardly ever above 106/67. Sometimes when I have a sudden drop my heart will raise to 95-105 at rest. I am now currently on life watch event monitor as of last week. I stopped taking the abilify and the effexor and have been switched to zanaflex 10mg 3× daily and continuing with the gabapentin 300 3× daily but my condition seems to be worsening. Is it possible these medications are making my heart condition worse? And if so how do I approach my drs.(because I have 3 prescribing drs) to listen to my concerns. Im starting to become concerned if I stay on these meds what may happen. Thank you for your time and any input you may have
