- I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?

- 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.
- 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.
- Can crestor cause vertigo? (2 responses)
I started taking Crestor in May of 2011. I had my first big "episode" in June.
Severe vertigo, loss of balance, slurred speech, fatigue, loss for words, tingling, numbness, pressure in back of head...
Didn't have all at once, but went to hospital via ambulance twice. Was first given 1000 mg of keppra for seizures -- way too much-- I'm only 4'10/95 lbs.
Went back to neuro. Took me off keppra. Started testing for MS.
Had 2 spinal taps and 3 or 4 MRIs. Had another severe attack and was hospitalized with diagnosis of TIA.
First thought I needed a stent in P1 segment of artery . Went to stent specialist. Didn't need it at all.
Was on antibiotics for Lyme for about five or six months.
The neuro said I was " an enigma wrapped in a riddle."
Found different neuro!
Meanwhile, a friend said that statins could cause these same symptoms.
I took myself off Crestor. After about three weeks, my symptoms dissipated.
I still have fatigue( blood tests are normal) but I have had only two very, very tiny spells of vertigo. My speech has not been slurry.
So far, so good. I haven't driven in months, since the vertigo would come on suddenly. Couldn't risk hurting someone myself! Yesterday, I drive a couple miles to the post office!
Continuing with my experiment of being off the Crestor until my next visit to the neurologist.
I was a school principal and took early retirement because of the severe effects. If I retired early because of Crestor... goodness gracious...
I was debilitated at work. I'd be fine ones ire and the next, I'd be holding onto the desk, ad the room was spinning-- or my secretaries would have to hold me as I hobbled into the nurse's office-- or I would hold onto the wall as I walked down the hallway.
Couldn't run a school like that. I wish I stopped taking Crestor 2 years ago!!!!
Oh... and the pharmacist and neurologist said they don't connect Crestor to the severe vertigo because it wasn't on the list of side effects!
