  • Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
    I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.

    Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
    I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.

    Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion

    Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.

    I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.

    I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
    It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.

    I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear

    Anyone else?
  • Prednisone mixed results-it lets me breath (1 response)
    have been on prednisone now for 3 years straight. Am taking 30mg a day just to breath. every time i have tried to taper off i have ended up in the emergency room unable to breath. That has been 7 times in the last year. I am 49 years old and was in good health 3-4 years ago. got a cough and it has been down hill.Prednisone worked great at first but then it starts to destroy the body.Had nasal passage surgery(waste of time)have broken many ribs from coughing.painful.when you are on prednisone your body takes 3-5 times longer to heal.craked tailbone from a slip. have seen over 12 doctors.reasonable gueswork. My best doc which is mine says do you want to suffocate to death or let your body try and fix itself if it can. im not for suffocation at all.

  • Ideopathic hypersomnia from mantle cell lymphoma
    I have an unusual idiopathic hypersomnia surrounded by the circumstance of also having Mantle Cell Lymphoma. I awake each day at around 7:00 am without an alarm after 7-8 hrs sleep. By 8:00 am after a cup of coffee and breakfast, I feel fully awake and 100% normal.

    Around Noon and 12:30, I begin to feel sleepiness coming on. This is nothing like the mid-afternoon low many people experience. A cup of coffee or a little fresh air do nothing.

    By 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm, I feel deeply drugged (like I've taken Ambien) and need to sleep. I sleep 3-4 hours of fairly deep sleep (I don't hear the phone or someone at the door). I have vivid dreams near the end of the nap and about half the time I have auditory hallucinations at the beginning or the end of the nap (I generally don't have these at night).

    When I awake, I feel like it's morning again and need a cup of coffee to get me going again. For the rest of the evening, I feel about 80% of morning alertness and energy levels.

    I go to bed at about 10:30 every night. It takes me about 15 - 20 minutes or so to fall asleep. I get up once a night to urinate, due to slight incontinence from prostate brachytherapy. I generally fall right back to sleep. Even when I sleep more or less than average, or go to bed significantly later than normal, I still feel the 1pm sleepiness at the same time and in the same duration.

    I have tried Nuvigil and it works well enough for me to stay awake during the afternoon if absolutely necessary. I'm feel about 70% of normal, but don't sleep well that night and don't feel fully rested or awake the next day. If I force myself to stay awake, the intense sleepiness goes away around 4:00pm - I feel sluggish but do not need to sleep until my normal bedtime.

    HISTORY:

    Diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in June of 2013. I noticed worsening early afternoon sleepiness up to six months before diagnosis. After diagnosis, I gradually became more sleepy and began needing naps of 1/2 hour to 1 hour. By the time I began treatment for MCL (Oct 2012, I was sleeping in excess of 4 hours every day despite getting a good night's sleep. This and the increasing size of my spleen were the determining factors for beginning treatment. During 6 months of chemotherapy (Rituxan/Bendamustine every 4 weeks) I continued to have these naps. After achieving full remission, I received high dose chemo followed by an autologous stem cell transplant in May of 2013. About a month after the transplant, when I gained a little strength back, I needed only a light nap of 30-45 minutes, but gradually the heavy naps returned to the current 3 hr/day level, despite my strength and endurance returning to nearly normal levels. My nighttime sleep pattern has not changed significantly all this time.

    I had an Overnight sleep study that showed no significant apnea, but because I didn't sleep normally at the center, the test was inconclusive. It was followed by an MSLT which showed that I did not have narcolepsy (no early REM). I was then prescribed an auto-PAP machine for three weeks to check my sleep hygeine at home. Minimal apnea was noticed, and most of the episodes were from my changing position triggering a boost in the PAP pressure. I slept significantly worse because of this.

    Because of the clockwork nature of the daytime sleepiness and the correspondence with my lymphoma, I would like to investigate an endocrinological source for my idiopathic hypersomnia but the sleep centers here in Wilmington are not equipped to handle this investigation.

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I have been on Lisinopril for high blood pressure for 25 years, no problems. About 15 years ago I began having problems with reflux. I took Aciphex for about 6 years and the problem went away. 3 years ago I had to begin treatment for reflux again, this time with Prilosec OTC. I took it for about 6 months and was able to stop again. I had to have two stents in my heart 20 months ago (blockage only, no heart attack) and was on Plavix for 6 very long months. I am still having issues with internal bleeding even after stopping the Plavix. Dr put me on Omeprazole while I was still on the Plavix. About 6 months after starting the Omeprazole my doctor announced that I had type 2 diabetes, which floored me. He put me on Metformin and I began battling high glucose levels. About 6 months ago, I stopped taking the Omeprazole and my sugar levels went down significantly, even to the point that I could stop my medication (while limiting sugar and carbs). I started back on the Omeprazole three weeks ago, and my sugar has skyrocketed again. I am back on the full dose of Metformin (1500 mg a day), but my sugar ranges from 120 after fasting to 260 at peak times. I am looking for an alternative to the Omeprazole, and I am certain it was at least partly responsible for my developement of type 2 Diabetes. I wonder how many others this has happened to. The sad thing is that the Doctors don't have a clue about any of this.
