Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I took fexofenadine for a few months last year, and had oesophagus pain and problems swallowing. i had a gastroscopy eventually. but by the time i had the procedure, i had stopped the fexofenadine.
I had started the Oesophagus problems about the time I was put on Flexofenadine. I did not at the time blame this Ryhinitis drug to the digestion problems I was having. But stopped the Flezofenadine, as it did not completely help my Ryhinitis. I was put on Loretidine for the Ryhinitis, but this made me feel washed out, so after a couple,of months I changed to Benedryl with Acrivastine . My Oesophagus problems were starting to improve. Today 9 months later, Imwent to the doctor to see if there was anything else for Ryhinitis, I have been put back on Fexofenadine, worried now that my Oesophagus will start again to cause problems.

- Possible side effect
I have Sjogren's which is affecting my exocrine pancreas, stomach, and lining of my intestines. Loose stools happen frequently but diarrhea is very infrequent in my case. After taking Gymnema for just 2 days, my body went to severe diarrhea. There were no other changes in my diet that would have caused this. So if someone has IBS or Crohns or a condition where their digestive system is sensitive, Gymnema may quickly cause severe diarrhea in those people, perhaps. It is used also as a laxative so maybe that is the reason this happens when someone already had an intestinal problem.
- Syntroid and pruritus
I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
- Thrush while on prograf
I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Synthroid and breast enlargement
I have went from a B-C cup size to a D cup in the past 8-9 months.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a cheap, calcified, whitish build start in the jaws (or mouths) of innumerable vertebrates and worn to defeat down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also exercise teeth for hunting or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but rather of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
The community design of teeth is be like across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction modifying in their shape and position. The teeth of mammals be struck by deep roots, and this figure is also create in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, however, the teeth are fastened to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are attached to the inner come up of the jaw alongside harmonious side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are unavailable by cold ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that accumulate the jaw.
