Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
- Has anyone ever experienced active growing skin tumor like growths on their body
Been on remicade for 15 years, side effects tumor like growths
- I injected suboxone and now i feel weird this is not the first time i done it but the first time my arm is numb all over dizziness purple pinkish splotches all over my arm wat is wrong
I shot an eighth of suboxone today and now my arm is purplish and red blotches there was no pain during or after injection only numbness dizziness and I can't get my nail nd to go to white it stays red this has never happened before.
- Can xeralto and an antihistimine cause dizziness, shortness of breath, tiredness, etc.
I also take a blood thinner, xeralto, for a-fib. I have been using a mouthwash of an antihistimine antacid mix for a day and a half.
- 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.

- Remicade overview/side effects
Very powerful drug felt fine the first week second week was a different story.
- Lyrica is giving me nightmares
I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.
- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- Mucinex dm and advil congetstion
I noticed another female with simlar age and side effects; and a third female who in addition was under active thyroid. I have taken both drugs independently and had no problem with them. I am prone to low blood pressure & dizziness due to the thyroid problem
- The fear that follows an attack of vertigo (1 response)
I awoke one morning and it appeared my furniture was moving in the room. Everything was spinning. I have a ringing in my left ear. Went to an ENT who threw my condition into the catch 22 pile and said I had Meniere Disease. I would not accept that after I researched the horrible ailment. I sought the treatment of a Neurologist who gave me several test including the rotary chair test. He said I did not have Meniere's. I was relieved from the ringing in my ear for a couple of years and then it returned about a month ago with vengeance. I have had no more vertigo attacks like the first, but have had them at bedtime a few times and when I awake I feel fine and they are gone. I am left with a head full of fear since the ENT said I have that dreadful disease. I continue thinking what if it happens at work, or worse while I am driving. Is there anyone who can explain to me just what brings on vertigo and ringing in the ear other then the diagnose the ENT gave me? I remember having vertigo when I was a teen ager but went for years before another attack. How can I eliminate the fear that follows me wherever I go; fear that I will experience an attack somewhere other than my home. Thank you and God bless.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (13 months ago):
I am on Remicade once a month since July 22nd of 2013. Had a great response until I hurt my low back again. Then the back pain just worked it's way right up my spine to the neck. I have had neck fusion one level...several bad discs. A knee replacement, a shoulder reconstruction etc. The numbness and tingling in my left hand and buzzing in my left ear are driving me nuts. A recent hearing exam showed I had nerve problems there as well. Don't know what to think. Had a brain MRI it showed normal. Now thinking a spinal tap in order?
From this study (1 year ago):
Ear congestion in one ear, hearing compromised in that ear and mild ear pain, some dizziness. Several days ago severe vertigo causing throwing up. Vertigo gone now.
From this study (2 years ago):
this just started after my last two treatments. It only happens when I lie down on my back, or when lying down turning from one side to another. Last about 15 seconds or until I roll over or get up. Sometimes standing looking up. No dizziness when moving Head forward (bending down weeding or picking something up)
