- Does anyone experience heart palpitations causedby their acid reflux ? (2 answers)
I have had acid reflux/Gerd for 4 years + Was not believed that symptoms were real for a while as had no heartburn and a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia which even now some medics think is imaginary...it's NOT!!! Following a demeester score of 45 ( very high confirmation of acid reflux) and discovery of a large hiatal hernia, ( a classic physical cause of acid reflux) I had hernia repair operation and LINX anti reflux surgery. Throughout the four years a major symptom of my acid reflux were heart palpatations. They started at the same time I started with reflux and cleared up after the surgery. I have been reflux free palpitation free and antacid free for four months. then I was put on Gabapentin for back spasm and the reflux returned along with the palpitations. Medics keep insisting this is just anxiety yet eat a food that gives me reflux also starts the palps which is the indicator of the reflux as I do not have heartburn. Comes on when relaxing and eating watching tv ( no anxiety present) and when I am sleeping peacefully ( no anxiety present) my heart wakes me up and fires off into tachycardia. Recently a doctor has said it is now known that acid reflux irritates the nerves in the solar plexus area and that triggers the palps. Anyone else experienced this? Are there any studies on it at all? Thanks all.
- How often is parkinson's disease confused with chronic lyme diseasse?
Back in the early 1950s I had the joy and privilege of spending a couple of summers on Cape Cod. As a kid, a lot of that time was spent playing in the grove of poplar trees and bramble behind the house. I clearly remember numerous buried tics, some of which resulted in a circular ring around the tic sites, some with a rash.
A year later some strange things began: high fever, life-long right-side tendency for tonsillitis, persistent 'mononucleosis', poor memory, low energy, and migraines which eventually became the scourge of my adult life. All that hidden under a blanket of high emotional stress caused by life-altering changes in the family.
2010: diagnosed with well developed Parkinson's Disease (PD).

- Does paxil use cause lymphoma or other types of cancer
I have been taking Paxil daily since 1997. For 14 years, I have had severe itching, a constant low grade fever with chills and night sweats. The itching is constant and so extreme that I scratch until the top layer of skin is gone, leaving a large area of scabs. The lymphoma tumors just appeared 6 weeks ago. I was also recently diagnosed with myeloma. I feel that Paxil may be to blame. I do not have a family history of cancer. I have been taking Trazodone at bedtime for 14 years also, which might also be a cause.
- Bedwetting with paxil and wellbutrin
I have been using both of these drugs and now have bedwetting issues 5 times a week on average. I would rate the bedwetting as moderate about a6/10 but my wife and I can live with this as she had made the comment " you are back to the man I married ". I started taking these due to depression about work and anxiety about work. We both think we can live with the bedwetting as no one needs to know about it
- Novocaine at the dentist office (1 response)
Novocain makes me shake, makes my blood rush through my hands so bad that others can feel it just by touching them, and makes my breasts hurt.
- Paxil cause osteoporosis?
I had OCD since age 8. At 42 I was finally diagnosed and put on Paxil. When I reached 40 mgs and after 2 months on 40 mgs i was completely cured of OCD. I stayed on Paxil for the next 15 years. I no longer take any SSRI as they were causing severe lethargy that last few years of use. When I was around 47 I broke my wrist and then learned I was close to full blown osteoporosis. Five years ago I broke my humerus and then found that not only did I have osteoporosis but to a degree of a woman of 80. I had Prolia infusion 2 years ago and it reversed my bone loss. Last year my density test showed I was losing bone again and I had a Reclast infusion. I will not know if this has helped until next year. I am fairly sure that the Paxil had some fault in my osteoporosis although I know that my vitamin D levels are very low even after 50,000 units a week. I am not sure if is a combination effect of Paxil and low vitamin D that caused premature osteoporosis. No one in my family has had osteoporosis and no one that I am aware of has taken a SSRI.

cheryl on Jan, 31, 2015:
My husband is 44years old and has been on antianxiety pills for 4 years and antidepressants for 3years. His whole personality changed not long after starting all those years ago. He was never diagnosed with either anxiety or depression but put on them by a GP for one panic attack. He is addicted after so many years and GPs just hand him scripts one after the other with out any questions. He tells them nothing about his compulsive gambling, compulsive lies, anger, lack of feelings or emotions about anything including me. He has no impulse control and seems to not care about anything he does at all. This is the complete opposite of who he used to be. He did taper off once recently and I helped him to do it very slowly. He started to become a bit more normal during the taper but got sick only two days off them altogether and panicked and I think he has gone back on them behind my back. His behavior has gone back to how it used to be and he is lying, gambling ignoring me for weeks if I question him and just being a horrible person to me. He has done some very low things over the years but his most recent one is telling me that I can't say that he has done bad things because I was apparently a whore before he met me. That is so far from the truth that people are shocked and disgusted that he could even suggest it. Well so am I and I have had enough. I have stayed for all these years thinking I could help him to get off those poison pills and he could return to the person he used to be. I couldn't believe it myself that this could happen to a man who loved me more than anything just by taking a pill prescribed by a doctor. I have done a lot of research over the last 2 years and have found a lot of evidence to support that it can happen especially if you didn't really need them in the first place and then stay on them long term. The sad thing is that the person on them doesn't see who and what they became. In their warped and medicated mind they think everyone else is crazy. I had a small glimpse of my my old husband for a few months of tapering and during that time he did love me and talk to me and even wanted to buy me new rings for our anniversary in March this year. Now I am nothing again not worth talking to he just wants to sit in front of the tv after work and play poker all night. I am disgusted with the medical field and wish they knew how it felt to have your marriage and life ruined by a little pill. I have been put through hell and I still feel sorry for the man I lost to antidepressants. He is gone now.
