- Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (2 answers)
I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!
- Can urinary retention cause severe dizziness and lightheartedness?
I had a kidney infection for 1.5 months diagnosed in August this year it took 2 lots of antibiotics to kick it but now I am left with SEVERE urinary retention I had a cystoscopy which only lasted for 24 hours it was done when I was awake so I think that it wasn't very affective by the next morning I was again in agony with lower back pain and pain around my kidneys. I had to swap consultants I am seeing my new one tomorrow but now I am suffering with severe urinary retention I pass urine 1-2 times a day I try to go if my bladder feels full I can be sat on my toilet for 20 mins and its just a few drops so I get bad lower stomach pain too from the pressure as I cannot go properly. My consultant gave me Cefalexin but my GP was very wary giving it to me as I am only 24 years old and they don't usually give it to women.
Does urinary retention cause bad dizziness and how can I help the symptoms because the back and kidney pain along with the lower stomach pain keeps me up for most of the night I am getting about 4-5 hours sleep I work as a nanny so I am constantly feeling exhausted

- My experience on plaquenil
I'm 32--& this report showed that eye twitching only occured in ages 40-49, I can't be the only 30 something having this issue. It is soo annoying it comes & goes daily most of the day. Is this a side effect of the drug, must be. Because if you just google eye twitching --it says the reasons are stress, lack of sleep & caffeine--I have problems with all the above..so medication or any of the above--dk

- Palpitations when eating raw garlic
After symptoms of a cold, I've been drinking the famous "garlic honey lemon" mixture to try to get rid of the cold and it actually worked pretty well.
The first morning it didn't feel very nice to drink but I was ok.
From day 2, I started to feel heartburn and heart palpitations, with a sort of headache as soon as I drank the mixture. Symptoms then disappear within a couple of minutes and I was fine for the rest of the day.
This has been getting worse every morning, until this morning (day 5) where I had to kneel down and focus on breathing.
I can't drink it anymore, my chest hurts and it gets quite scary.
I usually don't eat a lot of garlic anyway, I don't really like it. I'm assuming it's the garlic creating the reaction, as lemon and honey are part of my daily diet.

Took steroids for intensely itchy full body rash. Rash did not cease. Last day of prednisone tablets, got nausea sick headache. Second day with black water diaherria, incontinence, can keep no foods in. Will be starting second course prednisone tomorrow. Rash worse than ever.
From this study (13 months ago):
2+ Urine samples with moderate amount of blood(hysterectomy 2 yrs ago) and more than 2 UA's with protein in my urine. Last UA result was 30+ protein in urine. Personal History of kidney stones 10+yrs and Family hX of kidney problemss.
From this study (1 year ago):
Was diagnosed with SLE and Lupus Nephritis Dec 2012, I was on prednisone for 9 months, completely off a month ago. Cellcept since Dec 2012, lisinopril and plaquenil since around feb 2013.
Started getting difficulty swallowing and nausea that comes and goes (not necessarily at the same time) about 2 months ago when I was on 5mg of prednisone and chalked it up to tapering side effects. No longer on prednisone, nausea has continued, Dr. put me on Ranitidine 2 weeks ago and the horrible gagging everytime I swallowed subsided, but it's still difficult to swallow a lot of the time (food, not saliva, drink, or even pills.) It seems to get worse randomly after I eat, but I'm wondering if it's not just stomach acid but something bigger.
Rheumatologist told me that putting me on a PPI might be the next course of action rather than Ranitidine because PPIs promote the healing of injuries caused by stomach acid, but I'm wondering if I need to go see a GI about this since I let it go unchecked for so long.
