Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.

losartan 20 mg
tired all the time, dizziness, chronic constipation, stomach pains, pins and needles, diabetic type 2 hx alcoholism resolved, gerd, early satiety
- Is type 2 diabetes reversible after stopping plavix after a year being on the drug?
Can any Plavix, Protonix or Metoprolol can type 2 diabetes and can it be reversible after stopping the meds? I experience severe leg cramps in my muscles. I was on Atorvastatin for high cholesterol for 8 months before being taken off. If anyone can answer any of my questions it will be greatly appreciated.
- I was jut diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. i called my doctor's office today to ask what otc pain reliever i could take for joint pain. the nurse said i should take only tylenol. is this correct?
Information on the web says Tylenol is known to cause autoimmune hepatitis. I am concerned that my doctor's nurse had instructed me to take it. I was hoping it would be safe to take Alive.
- Can this medication cause the ears to ring?
I developed tinnitus about one year ago. I understand that there is no cure for it. I'm researching it myself. I'm also in a research program that requires me to wear small ear generators. It doesn't seem to help at this time.

- Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.

- I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!
- Skyrocketing cholesterol 6 mo on pantoprazole
My primary care physician prescribed pantoprazole 40 mg per day in mid November 2013 and at the same time gave me results of my lipid panel telling me I should improve my cholesterol and tryglyceride numbers. He also prescribed Omega 3 supplements 2000 mg/day, along with dietary modifications. In June 2014, my lipid panel was rerun. Cholesterol increased by 60, tryglycerides increased by 800. Yes, 800. HDLs dropped by 5. Cholesterol ratio was 9.0 despite my adherence to prescribed regimen. I had also gone to a GI to confirm stomach ulcer being treated by pantoprazole. Asked about long term use. He said as a PPI it was among the safest medications that could be prescribed and that I could take it indefinitely if needed. No one ever told me pantoprazole could increase cholesterol.

From this study (4 months ago):
I was diagnosed with hiatal hernea 5 years ago via an endoscopy, which was done due to chronic complaints of the feeling of choking on "a ball of phlem in my throat", which turned out to be acid due to hernea. I have been taking pantoprazole nightly since then and it helps immensely. I have acid if I ate something that causes irritation or if I forget to take the med. Also If i forget to take the med, I experience extreme stomach upset the next day: diahrea and cramping.
Starting 18 days ago I have been experiencing chronic abdominal pain and bloating. I have had chronic heartburn which I only ever experience when I was pregnant 8 years ago. I have been constipated. If I eat anything the pain/crampy feeling in my abdomen worsens immediately..So I have been living on gatorade and Chicken broth, which does cause abdomen pain to increase but not as much as solid food. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy done yesterday and have a follow up appointment to go over findings in 2 days. The Dr. did say after the procedures that there were no obvious Cancer or polyps of any kind. But that my small intestines were not functioning properly allowing the gas to move. We will of course go over all that in 2 days. But here i am back at home still absolutely in pain and miserable, weak and about 12 pounds lost since this started. I have been doing my own research online trying to see if I can find anything on my own to get some relief....anything!! At this point after everything I have read I believe I have Paralytic ileus...But what caused it? The pain meds for my herneated disks??? that is where I am at right now... There is no mention of how to relieve pain here at home or by the Dr. There is also no mention that I can find of how to fix it? I would like an opinion as to if you believe this is Paralytic ileus and any info on how to treat condition and treat pain. Thank you.
