I have been taking Gabapentin, 600 mg at night, for over two years due to lumbar decompression and fusion of L4-L5. During the same year I had C4-C7 fused as well. I take a 10 milligram Valium every night. Due to these surgeries I have been totally incapacitated for over a year. I am also a 62 year old female. Recently I gradually started getting back into playing golf, as well as other more physical activities. While playing golf I started noticing that I was getting a terrine rash. It started at my ankles and have now worked its way up to my knees, right where the sun hits. It looks terrible and my dermatologist took a biopsy today. Could it be due to photosensity caused by Valium and Gabapentin? The doctor says that it's actually blood vessels breaking or leaking under the skin. It looks terrible, and when I stand I feel a sensation of pins and needles in my lower legs. I don't know what to think or do. I do not want to be housebound any longer.

I'm a 52 y/o female with RA, Sjogrens and fibromyalgia. I've been on Humira & methotrexate for about 7 years. Sinusitis symptoms off and on, usually after Humira injection or day after taking mtx. Infection needing antibiotic only a few times. Frustrating, but better than hurting, fatigue and joint degeneration.

I did not have Multiple Sclerosis until I took phentermine for 3 mos. My OBGYN prescribed to help lose weight to make my periods not so heavy. I only needed to lose 20 lbs. A few weeks after stopping the phentermine I came down with symptoms of MS and was diagnosed within 2 months. I have always wondered if the phentermine brought out my MS.
