Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Four years ago received comprehensive neurological workup to ro m.s. still have certain symptoms, including moderate to severe itching nos, intercostal muscle spasms. ????
Am wondering if I should pursue additional testing for M.S. Itching has not subsided on back and lower abdomen; dermatological exams all negative. Intercostal muscle spasms intermittent, but severe at times. Now have a swollen lymph node in groin persisting for 3+ weeks. Should I be concerned that M.S. is still a possibility? All neuro tests for M.S., including MRIs, electromyographic studies, etc. all negative four years ago.
- 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
- I have an abnormal liver enzyme cyp2d6 and i am extremely sensitive to medications, are there any multivitamins/supplements that i can safely take?
I have abnormal cyp2d6 liver enzyme and have to take Tirosint thyroid medication because I react to binders in other thyroid medications. Are there any multivitamins/supplements that I can safely take?
- My daughter has congenital php and diabetes(hyperglycemia) not diagnosed until 18.with both...now 23...blood sugars are uncontrolled nothing so far is helping
All the patients I have chatted with have LOW blood sugar but mine is high. Nothing is helping it just keeps climbing. What gives?
- 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.

- 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.
- Amlo dipine and terazosin
I have taken combination since 04/13 I have experienced ED lower testosterone and elevated PSA. Prior to that I was taking terazosin and hydrochorizide without any side effects.
