- Does anyone get numbness in lower legs after sleeping for 4-5 hours? wakes me up and now advil no longer helping with discomfort
Not sure if any of my COPD medications are causing my lower leg numbness or if I have an undiagnosed medical condition. I have been taking Spiriva and Advair for at least a year. The numbness seems to wake me up after 4-5 hours of sleep. Recently started using the Proventil HFA inhaler but not every day so not sure if this rescue inhaler is causing lower leg numbness. No tingling or cramping occurring in lower legs. Also stomach seems to be slightly throbbing at the same time but only if lying on either side..do not feel this sensation if lying on my back. Advil used to help me get back to sleep but now it does not seem to be helping this numbness subside. Anyone else ever have anything like this? No numbness during daytime

SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!
Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

- Allopurinol and muscle cramps
Approximately 5 years ago I developed gout and my physician prescribed allopurinol. After a period of time I began to have muscle spasms in the calves of my legs at night. My doctor gave me a prescription for restless leg syndrome, which helped for a short time. I was then given a different prescription when that one no longer helped, and finally a third prescription, which did not work either. The cramps continued to grow more severe and more frequent. I was also having extremely severe cramps in my left hand, to the point that I could not straighten my fingers for several excruciating minutes. Although the cramps in my calves had lessened significantly, my toes were starting to cramp severely.
I stopped taking allopurinol about a month ago, and since then I realized that my hands and toes were cramping less and less, and now it is almost completely gone. I inadvertently stopped the allopurinol and I lost the bottle of pills and didn't realize it until I went to refill my pill box that holds a month's supply divided into daily doses. I searched on the internet and found that muscle problems are not uncommon for some people taking allopurinol.
