- What are safe alternatives to oxycontin? since moving to florida., no pharmacy stocks or can order it. suggestions?
I've been on OxyContin for several years with pretty good results managing severe pain. Since moving south I'm finding that pharmacies cannot/will not carry it. Sent ex fr. Local md to mail order--one week later, still waiting.
I'm desperate to find an effective alternative. Ideas?
- I amwondering if i have myathesia gravis (1 answer)
I am thinking that after a long bout of going nowhere with Drs. That I might have Myathesia Gravis. My Grandmother had it and I am thinking that my brother had it when he was born.He failed to thrive at first as he was unable to suck very well. He did make it though with a forced feeding of milk and bananas. He was sickly all his life though and recently died of cancer. I noticed that my eye is drooping on the left side. I have periods of extream fatigue, my left arm is tingly and I can't seem to feed myself without changing to my right hand. I have spinal stenosis and severe pain in my hip area but my right big toe seems to be tingly from time to time. I also have a swallow problem that causes me to choke or throw up the food or drink. Pills stay part way down a lot. My G.I. guy wants to strech my esophegus. I tend to eat soft foods and stay away from steak or anything chewy. I have congestive heart failure, sudden cardiac death, syncope all of which I greatfully managed to survive. I have fibromyalgia, and some nodules on my chest wall ( i forget what that is called) I have had 5 or 6 bouts with Costochrondritus which was way worse than actually having my heart stop. Costo hurts like a beech! I am frequently short of breath, exercize intolerant and have trouble holding my water.I have good dsys and bad days. Also my left hand and the base of my scalp goes all numb and tingly sometimes. There is also a terrible electric shock type feeling in my mid back area that makes me completely stop in my tracks and feel like I have been hit with a 350 lb pro football player. I have been hypokalimic after taking water pills (Ferosimide) i have taken prendisone for the Chosto and feel better immediatly, but I have mental reactions to too much Prendisone. I am very allergic to NSAID'S and pennicillian. Anyone got any ideas that the Drs have maybe not thought of... I would sure like to get better and go dance but the last time I danced I lasted 3 minutes before I had to fall into a chair.

- Oxycontin induced low blood pressure.
Have taken for 10+ years (Oxycontin). Recently had dose raised by 50%. I now take 140mg 3xdaily and 60mg (immediate Release) x4 daily as needed. Almost immediately after changing dosing (3-5 days later) I began to feel dizzy and light headed. BP began to lower and is now at 89/58. I have been treated in the past for having high BP so this is significantly lower than usual. The ONLY other change in diet, medication and lifestyle is at the same time I stopped consuming regular Coke and have switched to Diet Dr. pepper. Same caffeine levels but not same sugar levels.
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Mensis cycle and oxycontin
I have severe back injuries. When I lived in another state, I was put on oxycontin and immediately my menstrual cycle (period] stopped for 1 year. When I moved to another state, I stopped taking this drug and my period returned normal. I eventually had to go back on this drug, (oxycontin) and since this time, 2 years now, I again have not had a period since beginning. If you are on this drug and are worried about your period stopping, fear not, it is a normal side effect. Hope this helps. ..
- Which issue has caused my periodontitis, my fibromyalgia or spinal stenosis? (2 responses)
At the age of 38 yrs old, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Spinal Stenosis. Obviously I had both of the disease for some years, and was struggling with the pain and symptoms for some time before I finally got checked, went through years being told they didn't find anything, told I had Herniated disks in My back only. Now with all the findings, there are 7 Herniated disks from My neck to My lower back.
Also since 2010, I was diagnosed with Periodontitis and have been losing all of My teeth in the top of My mouth.
I am 44 yrs old now, have been on disability for the last 4 years. I am down to 6 teeth in the top of My mouth, since having 1 removed just last week. They are telling Me that 3 more need to come out, and I am trying not to sink into total depression, especially since these are now My front teeth. I have a appointment today for a Denture Exam.
I started researching today to see if this Periodontitis is related to either My Spinal Stenosis or My Fibromyalgia. Especially since I once again looked up the definition for Periodontitis. Which States;
**Periodontal Disease and Bone Health. Periodontitis is a chronic infection that affects the gums and the bones that support the teeth. Bacteria and the body's own immune system break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place.
Of course with My disease of Spinal Stenosis and the bone loss as well as the nerve narrowing, I thought the breaking down of the bone in the gums might have a connection. Research didnt find any linking.
Now with Fibromyalgia, research showed 6 out of 17 thousand that they found. LOL Wow.. Well I guess I am "Number 7". Lucky Me! But it does make more sense now that looking at the definition. It is a Chronic infection (which Fibromyalia does create these) that effects the gums and bones. Bacteria and The Body's own Immune System break down the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth. Which with Fibromyalgia, our Immune System is always all kinds of "Crazy"!
Oh course you can not have any of these diseases, or any other health issues and wind up with Periodontitis. It happens. But I know from lots of reading, researching and living with Fibromyalgia, that it is "Very Possible"!
I would sure like to know what others with these 2 diseases are experiencing.
Have a Blessed Day.
- Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.

Ali on Jan, 31, 2013:
Hi. I'm sorry you've been having so many symptoms. :( I hope you've gotten some help. My suggestion is to RUN to the nearest naturopathic doctor and start going there. Doctors are human and drug companies are out for MONEY. You need to do your own research on things. I was given Provera to "help" me when I had menorrhagia (excessive bleeding) and they didn't tell me the potential side effects. I finally stopped taking it after about five days and found what really worked for me. It was an herb called Shepherd's Purse. I took it carefully and it worked great. A naturopathic doctor will understand how the body REALLY works and will tell you. So many prescriptions and other things pushed on people really hurt them. Check out Dr. Mercola's site for info on many subjects including birth control. You can google him. Another really good site is the Weston A Price site. Blessings! I'm goodplans4you and I'm over at yahooooo.
nPain on Oct, 16, 2012:
I'm a 30 yr old mom of 3 who had my mirena put n about 7 months ago. Recently my lower legs, calfs and feet have gotten severly swollen. I'm also having constant discharge. I tried a yeast infection cream and it went away but came right back. My breast have recently become sore and I have a sharp pain in my side from time to time. I'm scheduled to go to the dr on Monday. I've also been having very heavy bleeding associated with my period this month. Someone tell me I'm not crazy. Someone please give me some advice I'm very scared.
