Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.
- Is it safe to take pravastin while on remicade?
I have just started on Remicade and this drug scares the heck out of me! However it is being used as a last resort as no other medications were bring my ulcerative colitis under control I am very concerned about drug interactions and can't seem to get any straight answers from my doctor or the pharmacist. My main concern right now is can I safely take Pravastian due to being on Remicade? My cholesterol is very high.
- Remicade or ulcerative colitis causing joint pain?
Im also on mesalamine, 6 mp and trazadone. Ive had joint pain in elbow before but i realised it was caused by taking cortenema. I stoped the med and pain went away. After my first infusion of remicade (2days) i started with the knee, ankle, elbows , wrists and hands pain. The more i do. The worst the pain gets. Dr seemed to think it was caused by the UC but the timming of when the pain started is too close to e remicade. Ive had 3 doses. Still in pain every day. UC symptoms are much less severe than before. So why would the UC cause my joint pain?
- I am experiencing myelodysplastic syndrome symptoms but it is said that it doesn't typically get diagnosed for people my age. although everything is spot on and i need to know whats wrong.
I have been doing remicade treatments for about four years now. Lately I have gotten a UTI, an I get random bruises every single day, I also get super tired, my body aches, and I get fevers for hours on end without them breaking. I have no idea whats wrong because this has never happened before but someone told me that it looks like MDS and I looked into it and I have all the symptoms just am not in the age group for it. I was hoping someone would know if there is anything else I could look up. I am aware that remicade long term wise can cause leukemia and that is why this is such a huge concern. Please give me feedback thank you.

From this study (2 weeks ago):
Also chills fever runny nose and bad cough and sore throat
From this study (3 months ago):
Acne isn't severe in that it is vast, but what I do get is large spots that resemble whiteheads, but deep beneath the surface. They stick around for months without ever changing or coming to a head. Sometimes they itch.
My idea of severe weight gain: 25lbs in 6 weeks.

I have also noticed that I have been getting hard pimple like bumps on my face and neck. They never come to a head can be painful to touch and they get big like a boil but they don't go completely away they shrink down to where you can't notice the huge bump but when I rub my fingers over the area you can still feel a little bump under the skin almost like a cyst! What exactly are they and how can I stop getting them?

If they are painful and around the jaw/neck, they may be swollen lymph nodes.
