  • Does keppra couse anyone bruising?
    I've been taking Keppra for about 2 yeara now, and my legs are always bruised. I don't know why, I'm wondering if this could be a sid effect.
  • 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

  • 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.
  • Mom died of stomach blockage while on tramadol
    my mom was taking tramadol for hip pain. she went in the hospital for a hip replacement and died 3 days after the surgery in the hospital from an intestinal blockage
  • Using tramadol with anti-depressants
    Using Tramadol with Anti-depressants

    I was taking Tramadol for pain instead of Endone to cut out the opiates as well as my usual anti-depressant. After about 6 months of feeling dizzy spells and nausea I stumbled across information that these two medications should not be mixed. After all of the extensive tests they did to find out why I had these symptoms, I informed my Doctor of what I had discovered. Much the their embarrassment, they realised I was correct and immediately took me off the tramadol. I just thought I would share this information in case any one else is going through what I did.
  • Levaquin side effects
    Prescribed for COPD flare-up, along with a 10 day course of prednisone. On day 5, I experienced extreme irritability. I was imagining what it would be like to shoot my husband. He had kicked me in his sleep and I was very seriously thinking of shooting that foot. I got up and secured the gun. However, the anger stayed with me.

    On day 9, my knees were so swollen that I could not bend my legs. It hurt to walk. I could not get up and down without assistance.

    3 weeks after discontinuing the medication, I still have tenderness and knee pain. I had to cut my hours at work because of the pain.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • Have had neck, shoulder and arm pain off and on for years. 2014 MRI discovered spinal arthritis in lumbar with degenerated disc and in spinal arthritis (severe) in cervical area along with bulging discs. I am now having sciatica pain in buttock along with legs jerking and shaking. I am now having neck,shoulder and arm pain along with sudden episodes of arm and wrist drop.

    In early 2013 I started having weakness in ankles both legs. As the year progressed the weakness expanded into my lower legs. In October 2013 I was diagnosed with ALS due EMG test. Now (February 2015) I am 95% wheelchair bound and experiencing all these spine problems. My arms are starting to weaken too - both at the same time.

    All my symptoms in legs and arms are symmetrical- started and progressing in both legs or both arms at same time. I have learned that jaw problems can be caused by spine also. I can't help but wonder if my ALS is being caused by my spine problems.

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • -family history of various autoimmune diseases
    -excessive ear infections if I do not use Vaseline everyday (I have to apply it inside my ear with a q-tip lightly) If I don't do this & scrap the scabs out an ear infection will happen due to all the debris. As soon as I peel the scab off a clear sticky liquid flows out of my ear & creates a new scab
    -endometriosis has ravaged my life & I have had a laproscopy to remove the endometrial tissue off my bladder
    - I am unable to completely empty my bladder without some pain & discomfort
    - I have congenital, cervical kyphosis (my neck is deformed -cervical spinal bones are bent or formed sitting forward) this causes eminence strain on the surrounding muscle & bone. (head & body aches, feelings of fever or "feeling sick/achy" with no viral or infection of any kind)
    -poor eyesight, that became so severe I had no choice but to try lasik with no guarantee that I wouldn't have to wear glasses after.
    -painful sex
    -eyebrows falling out except where they are not suppose to be (stray hairs outside the line of eyebrow)
    -knots on shin bone
    - I have to take excessive amounts of muscle relaxers and Tramadol on a daily bases to be able to do the amount of work normal people do, but I feel aches and pains all day long even with the medications.
