  • What are healthy steps should i take against cronary artery disease
    I feel sharp pains just below my left breast . At first i thought it was a breast cancer but ii ran a test that cancelled that out. Now, i strongly suspect a coronary artery disease. I also feel similar pains at my feets, restlessness at night and a bit of hallicinations at night. I also have high blood pressure.
  • Does humira cause excessive sweating?
    Having psoriaticarthritis,fibromyalgia,psoriais,restless leg syndrome,roseacea and high blood pressure means complex health issues and a complex list of medication to go with it. Iam suffering extreme sweating,flushing and now a tickled cough. Now it could be due to going through the change (menopause) but that started a year ago and although I was getting the flushes and sweating,it was nothing like it is now! To me,it seems the excessive sweating started roughly a month after taking Humira. Having so many health issues I'm in tune with any changes and note and monitor them. I started Humira 10 months ago now. My Psoriasis has cleared completely so I'm really pleased. Usually,there's a trade off and you end up with something else! Could the issues I have be down to a single drug on the list,or a combination?
  • Can tramadol usage cause a low white blood cell count?
    Low WBC of 2.7 on 10/21/15 and then 3.8 on 12/08/15
    Can these things be connected?
  • In having a-fib, can one use xarelto along with temador for brain tumor treatment
    Both drugs lower platelets, is using Xarelto unwise
  • Can i take diclofenac sodium mispoprostol with tramadol hcl?
    I have bad arthritis in my hips - very painful and affecting my quality of life. My doctor like to prescribe pills. He has given me Diclofenac Sodium Mispoprostal and Tramadol HCL. I have experienced minimal side effects i.e.: drowsiness but thats about it. I just want to be sure that I can take these drugs together.

  • 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.
  • Complera weight gain
    Switched from Atripla to Complera about 4 months ago due to neuronal toxicity. Started Complera and gained over twenty pounds in a month and continue to gain. I have always been thin with a very high metabolism. Now I have to watch ever single thing I eat.
  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
    After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I started losing my hair more when I started taking the tramadol for pain. I have lost quite a bit of hair since then and started balding on the top of my head. I don't know if it is hormonal or from all the medication I am on because I know that can cause hair loss also. My hair is also limp and lifeless and I have gained about 15 pounds since being on the tramadol. It is the only medication that helps with my pain and chronic anxiety caused by the Cymbalta so I don't know what else to do.

    Hi! I am a 26yr old male. I saw this and seems like we are taking the same meds and I wanted to compare. I have been on tramadol for almost 3 years for herniated discs from playing football. I recently have noticed and heard that long term use affects testosterone levels, so I got bloodwork done...turns out I am below range on all levels...which sucks because I am fit (or was) and pretty big. So my doc prescribed testim 1% 50mg/day (as of yesterday) and I wanted to see how it affected you along with takign the tramadol. I dont have hair issues, but I have had weight gain and general feminization due to loss of testosterone....so gross and sad for me. Idk if you are male or female...but I would love to hear what the combo has done for you. If anyone else can chime in it would be great. (fyi..tramadol is a low dose opiate agonist for pain; testim is testosterone gel)
