  • Could taking augmenting for infection in one ankle have caused phlebitis in vein in the other ankle?
    Started taking augmentin on Monday for infection in my right ankle (got a cut while wading in a river)...on Tuesday evening I noticed a hardened "nodule" on a prominent vein in my left ankle. I have been largely lying down with my feet up since late Monday--usually I am on my feet and moving around: an active person. I am in otherwise good health, fit and thin. I have low-ish blood pressure and rather prominent varicose veins in my left leg (above the site of the possible phlebitis). I am inclined to think it is phlebitis as it is so similar to that that my husband had from his IV several years ago--and has the same type of tenderness.

  • Atrial fib and ibs, is there a connection?
    I felt wonderful, after a good night sleep and a nice breakfast. Took my heart medicine. Took off for an hour shopping and the A-Fib began with a vengeance and lasted five hours.

    During the time, interestingly, I had continuous IBS. If I had not used butter (an IBS trigger) on my toast that morning, would have had an episode at all? I wonder if there isn't a connection, one that I might be able to control to some extent. This is worth trying!

    The dosis: Flecainida-Diondel: 100 mg (twice a day) - Pradaxa-Dabigatran Etexilato: 150 mg twice a day - Bisoprolol fumarato-Corbis: 2.5 mg daily



    sometimes I get a chest pain and other days an acid sensation coming from the stomach. I assign these drugs as to be the cause as I never felt this way before.
