Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.
- I have been on amlodipine for approximately 3 months and have had terrible swelling in my legs and ankles along with pain and itching. should i be taken off this medication?
I was previously taking Propranolol for blood pressure which didn't bother me at all, but last year I developed a breathing problem and was given Symbicort to help get rid of wheezing. The Symbicort and Propranolol don't mesh well so I was then put on Amlodipine. The swelling, pain and itching occurred right away. I asked the pharmacist about it and also my doctor and they both said a small percentage of people have this problem on this medication. I have tried many times to get my doctor to take me off of this medication but he insists it is best for me, but I disagree. I really don't want to have this problem for the rest of my life and I also won't have any skin left on my legs from the scratching, not to mention the pain that accompanies the swelling which seem to creep up to my knees and thighs and sometimes is so painful I just go to bed to lay down and hopefully the hydroclorithiazide will remove some of this water so that pain will go away. The doctor also doubled my dose of Losartin and Hydroclorithiazide. I'm up about 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom so it also interrupts my sleep. Is anyone else having this problem. I would prefer to go back on the Propranolol and get something other than Symbicort that won't interact with each other. Then I won't have pain and itching all the time. Does anyone have any input on this. I would really appreciate it.
Thanks. Debbie CB
- How do i know if an injection site is infected?
I have MS and take an injection 3 times a week. My stomach area on my left side will occasionally burn or sting days after as if I just did my injection 5 minutes prior. I've been taking the injections since 2007 and this basically started maybe 3 weeks ago. The pain is on and off.

- Tecfidera and psychosis
When our 31 year old daughter with Multiple Sclerosis started the 120 mg of Tecfidera, we noticed that she started becoming chatty-- talking more that usual. After a week on the lower 120 mg, she started on the higher 240 mg dosage. Her chatter increased significantly. By the second day on the higher dosage of Tecfidera, she was becoming completely out of control with excessive talking. She could not stop. We ended the Tecfidera 240 mg after two days and did not go back to the lower dosage. Her ability to sleep was diminishing on the lower dosage. By the time she reached the normal 240 mg, she stopped sleeping altogether. Even with taking 2 Tylenol PM, it didn't phase her. She could not sleep. We informed her neurologist and he prescribed the sleep aid Clonazepam 0.25 mg. Taking two tablets allowed her to sleep 7 hours--- but then she became completely Manic showing all the symptoms of Psychosis. There is no previous Bi-Polar/Manic in her history or in her family's history. Two days off the Tecifidera, she has become argumentative and combative. She is angry and impatient. This behavior is completely opposite of her normal behavior. The has always been one of the sweetest people on the planet. Any suggestions to help her get off this Psychosis episode??
- Ampyra vs kidney stones
Started taking Ampyra Sept 1, 2014.
Had a severe kidney stone in mid-September.
Another two weeks ago.
No family history or them. I also have no history of them.
Drink fresh squeezed lemon daily and lots of water.
Take Ibuprofen when it starts up.
Ampyra is helping with leg strength a tiny bit.
My MS is 40 years old so it is acting like it is old!
- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
. Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
