  • Did you have a heart fibrillations and anxiety and depression
    I was a pretty calm and relaxed person until I started omeprazole which after taking it for about 2 weeks,I didn't realize that I was stressing and having anxiety due to this drug. but it kept taking it . I got worse and worse every time I tried to do something I would get terrible anxiety and depression and frustration and then I realized that there must be something about this drug that was causing it and I quit taking it. I felt a definite difference when I quit taking it I was not quite so stressed didn't have anxiety I'm still withdrawing from it but I feel like I'm a whole lot better than I would not recommend this to anyone

  • Can long-term methadone use cause or increase the risk of colon cancer?
    I had a two-level spinal fusion at L4-S1 in 2000 after being injuried at work in Sept. 24, 1997. I lost everything after...the unjury, ability to do my job, my wife and family (couldn't take the strain) my home, my sense of self and purpose, direction and belonging...credit rating and ability to pay my bills.
    After a long period of waiting to settle my workmens' comp. case, I returned home, from the Bat Area back to Arizona to take of my mother with a yet un dianosed case of moderate dementia.
    Then, in 2011 I had a 2nd surgery to relieve spinal stenosis btwn. L2-L4, just above the fusion site.
    I've been taking methadone since early 2004, a little over ten years, now. I've had high blood pressure since my injury.

    Now, I waiting to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, with my father having had polyps and the way I've been feeling..drained, tired all the time, and stomach pains ( in addition to my chronic low back pain), I...
    find myself wondering if there is any relationtionship between the methadone and other meds and cancer?

  • Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
    I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.

    Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
    I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.

    Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion

    Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.

    I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.

    I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
    It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.

    I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear

    Anyone else?

That has been 7 times in the last year. I am 49 years old and was in good health 3-4 years ago. got a cough and it has been down hill.Prednisone worked great at first but then it starts to destroy the body.Had nasal passage surgery(waste of time)have broken many ribs from coughing.painful.when you are on prednisone your body takes 3-5 times longer to heal.craked tailbone from a slip. have seen over 12 doctors.reasonable gueswork. My best doc which is mine says do you want to suffocate to death or let your body try and fix itself if it can. im not for suffocation at all. Just a good medicine to counter the angriness of the steroid. Any ideas i am all ears. oh ya my eyes are starting to go and my joints as well

  • 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.

    HISTORY:

    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.
