  • I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
    I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
  • Does requip affect bone density?
    How do I know for sure requip taken for restless leg syndrome will not weaken my bones even more?
  • Is bed wetting part of having syringomyelia
    i also use panadol osteo, mintec, apo-meloxicam. i have wetting the bed is was just now and then but it has started to become more frequent now, does any one else had this happen.
  • Can i take garicina with afib
    Need to lose fifty pounds but need to no if Garicina will have a affect on my medicine and will it raise my blood pressure or my heart rate
  • 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?

  • 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.
  • Restless legs remedy
    After 24 years of restless legs I discovered that the cause was my joints. I have taken glucosamine & chondroitin as well as shark cartilage for 8 weeks and my symptoms have virtually disappeared. I did not see any improvement until after 6 weeks so please stay with this if you decide to give it a try.
  • Pristiq, epilim, sifrol, immovane, valium, mobic
    I started out with mild burnout depression in 2009 and was put on a low dose of Lexapro, which picked me up fantastically. I had been given low (2mg) Valium before for muscle relaxant purposes due to my scoliosis complications. Both these worked well. Then in 2010 I was drugged and raped and almost suffocated by my flatmate. I plummeted after 3 days of numb shock, into the deep dark abyss of major depression, and became fearful about everything. I couldn't enter a shop if there was a queue of men in there for example. Finding myself with complete lack of motivation, neglecting housework, making mistakes constantly at work, I returned to the doctor. He doubled my Lexapro dose. I went back as instructed and was not feeling any better and could not cope with how I felt, so he sent to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist added Epilim ie pramipexole hyrochloride (low dose) for mood balance, upped the Valium ie daizepam, to 5mg, and prescribed Immovane for my insomnia and terrifying nightmares. Time went on, and I built a tolerance to Lexapro, so he put me on Pristique 200 and Epilim 200. Then I had to have both those doubled (400 each) and I take them twice a day. I have had NO negative side effects at all, and they work excellently for me. As for the restless legs syndrome, that was diagnosed before I was on these medications. The Sifrol had to be increased too as I was told it had to have time to gradually build up in my system. It makes a great difference to my quality of sleep and how my legs feel the next day.
  • Flatulence, lactose intolerance, and clonazapam
    After taking my first dose of Clonazapam, it seemed my lactose intolerance flared up for 24 hours or more. Flatulence all through the period and watery stool in the morning. Does anyone else find their lactose intolerance triggered by the lactose in Clonazapam?
  • How an integrative wellness approach cured me of insomnia, ibs, and more (1 response)
    For 10+ years, I suffered with insomnia and a host of other problems including intestinal distress, headaches, psoriasis, anxiety, cognitive issues, hypothyroid, chronic itching, restless leg, etc. Traditional medicine, aka taking drugs, was not working to heal me. Since childhood, I’ve had IBS, headaches, and upper respiratory problems. Then, in my early twenties, after childbirth, I begin to suffer with panic attacks. I managed to get the panic attacks under control, but the insomnia never went away. I took both Ambien and Clonazepam at different times in my life. When I expressed my concern over taking these meds, my doctor reassured me and told me that some people just have to take sleeping meds for their entire life. I read literature on insomnia and tried most everything – no late night eating, no TV or electronics before bed, sleep in a cool room with complete darkness, meditate, sleep labs, etc. etc. etc. Even with the sleeping meds, I never got restful sleep. Most days, I felt like it was all I could do just to get by. For at least the first half of each day, I felt that I was in dazed stupor until the meds in me would start to wear off. I was first on Clonazepam and then switched to Ambien. When I made the switch, I suffered through withdrawal for about a week. It was horrible -- no sleep, hallucinations, etc. For years, I had silently suffered – my family, friends, and colleagues having no idea to what extent. I felt that mentally, cognitively, and physically I was slowly slipping away. My love for my child and my desire to nurture and provide for him is what kept me going. Without this purpose in my life, I fear that I might have given up somewhere along the way.

    Finally, a few years ago, I went to see an integrative medicine doctor. After years of being in the darkness, I am finally living again. My IM doctor put me on natural supplements, a natural thyroid replacement, and, most importantly, tested me for food allergies/sensitivities. My test results yielded that I could not tolerate wheat, gluten, yeast, and dairy. I took these results seriously and I completely eliminated these things from my diet. After two weeks of adhering to my new diet, I already felt better. In fact, I felt so much better, that, one evening, I decided not to take my Ambien. I have not taken it or any sleep or anxiety medicine since. My doctor was as surprised as I was and did not really anticipate that the diet alone would cure my insomnia. In fact, he had told me that, since I had been taking sleeping meds for so long, eliminating them completely would be a long process that we would have to work through together. Nearly all of the symptoms I listed have disappeared. I continue to take my natural thyroid replacement and the supplements my doctor suggested. I have the occasional migraine and a few patches of psoriasis -- but nothing like the severity I had before. I am 47 now and I am on a journey of healthy transformation. I eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and truly feel healthy, younger, and physically stronger than I have in 15 and maybe 20 years. Jokingly, my husband used to refer to me as "fragile." Well, not anymore. In fact, he has told me that my body seems like a completely different one. He has had a front-row seat to my transformation and he is as much "in awe" of the changes in me as I am in myself.

    Ten years ago, I was not optimist about my future. Today, I am full of hope, wonder, energy, and excitement. I believe we have the ability to heal ourselves, but we must be diligent in our pursuit of knowledge, persistent and strong in our will to make lifestyle changes, and patient that results will come as long as we are doing all the right things. By the way, giving up foods I had eaten my entire life was not difficult at all once I did it long enough to realize the tremendous benefits of not eating them.
