- Rash from eating kale
I ate kale for the first time on Monday. I only had a small bowl of fresh mixed green salad, so it wasn't entirely Kale. By Tuesday, I had a small rash on my left hip. I ignored it at first. Thursday evening, I decided to eat a large kale salad with other veggies and salmon, all of which I have eaten regularly aside from kale. Friday morning, my entire body was covered in the same rash that appeared Tuesday. I went to the ER. The doc said it was some type of allergic reaction. The ONLY thing I did/consumed different was the kale. I can't find much about it's reactions, though.
- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
- 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.
- Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
Dentist  tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
- Ideopathic hypersomnia from mantle cell lymphoma
I have an unusual idiopathic hypersomnia surrounded by the circumstance of also having Mantle Cell Lymphoma. I awake each day at around 7:00 am without an alarm after 7-8 hrs sleep. By 8:00 am after a cup of coffee and breakfast, I feel fully awake and 100% normal.
Around Noon and 12:30, I begin to feel sleepiness coming on. This is nothing like the mid-afternoon low many people experience. A cup of coffee or a little fresh air do nothing.
By 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm, I feel deeply drugged (like I've taken Ambien) and need to sleep. I sleep 3-4 hours of fairly deep sleep (I don't hear the phone or someone at the door). I have vivid dreams near the end of the nap and about half the time I have auditory hallucinations at the beginning or the end of the nap (I generally don't have these at night).
When I awake, I feel like it's morning again and need a cup of coffee to get me going again. For the rest of the evening, I feel about 80% of morning alertness and energy levels.
I go to bed at about 10:30 every night. It takes me about 15 - 20 minutes or so to fall asleep. I get up once a night to urinate, due to slight incontinence from prostate brachytherapy. I generally fall right back to sleep. Even when I sleep more or less than average, or go to bed significantly later than normal, I still feel the 1pm sleepiness at the same time and in the same duration.
I have tried Nuvigil and it works well enough for me to stay awake during the afternoon if absolutely necessary. I'm feel about 70% of normal, but don't sleep well that night and don't feel fully rested or awake the next day. If I force myself to stay awake, the intense sleepiness goes away around 4:00pm - I feel sluggish but do not need to sleep until my normal bedtime.
Diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in June of 2013. I noticed worsening early afternoon sleepiness up to six months before diagnosis. After diagnosis, I gradually became more sleepy and began needing naps of 1/2 hour to 1 hour. By the time I began treatment for MCL (Oct 2012, I was sleeping in excess of 4 hours every day despite getting a good night's sleep. This and the increasing size of my spleen were the determining factors for beginning treatment. During 6 months of chemotherapy (Rituxan/Bendamustine every 4 weeks) I continued to have these naps. After achieving full remission, I received high dose chemo followed by an autologous stem cell transplant in May of 2013. About a month after the transplant, when I gained a little strength back, I needed only a light nap of 30-45 minutes, but gradually the heavy naps returned to the current 3 hr/day level, despite my strength and endurance returning to nearly normal levels. My nighttime sleep pattern has not changed significantly all this time.
I had an Overnight sleep study that showed no significant apnea, but because I didn't sleep normally at the center, the test was inconclusive. It was followed by an MSLT which showed that I did not have narcolepsy (no early REM). I was then prescribed an auto-PAP machine for three weeks to check my sleep hygeine at home. Minimal apnea was noticed, and most of the episodes were from my changing position triggering a boost in the PAP pressure. I slept significantly worse because of this.
Because of the clockwork nature of the daytime sleepiness and the correspondence with my lymphoma, I would like to investigate an endocrinological source for my idiopathic hypersomnia but the sleep centers here in Wilmington are not equipped to handle this investigation.
