  • Pros and cons of vimpat for me
    I take a huge list of drugs unfortunately I have RA, Partial Small intestinal block, diabetes, asthma, allergies. Immune problems. Vimpat has done wonders for the migraines and seizure problems but the side effects are almost as bad. I have visual disturbances but I also have auras so who knows. The worst problems are shaking, memory, (worst is words) and sudden jerks and nerve firings which produce jerks or just loss of muscle control. Some of the random nerve firings can disrupt my whole body but they only last a fraction of a second and are more annoying than anything else. I tried at least one seizure agent from every category of meds nothing worked except Vimpat. I tried the whole range of dosing. Less than 300mg did not work and I only have the side effects above 250mg so apparently for me it has to cause side effects to work. Compared to the time losses, horrible headaches that are nearly continuous for for me they are worth it, I think. Now I am wondering now that I know where those effects are coming from.
  • Avastin--swelling of leg and foot--macular degeneration
    I had my first shot of Avastin for Macular Degeneration in April 2014. My left leg and foot began swelling so much that I was sent to the ER. Doctors thought it was another blood clot, but it was not.

    This is December and the swelling is worse.
  • Androgel for secondary hypogonadism
    Severe swelling in legs, ankles and feet after being on my feet for more than one hour. Pain in calves and ankles. Feels like they're being squeezed or compressed. Pain dissipates after laying down for a few hours. Swelling never completely dissipates. Always some swelling in ankles.
  • Muscle weakness while on accutane
    I began taking Accutane end of 2013 and I'm just now finishing up my medication.
    During the first month I noticed my hands swelling up, but I also noticed my knuckles lightened.
    Where I considered my elbows to be ashy, the color lightened up and the skin became smooth. My body retained water and my skin looked like it had a glow.
    My 2nd month it continued, the swelling only became prevalent during my 7 day period.
    My nails, hair, and turnover of my skin increased by month 3+4
    By month 5 my old hyper pigmentation had surfaced and my cystic acne, dissolved.
    I was on depression medication, this is advised against, but I discussed with doctor to do a patient override. I had no issues with depression, or the medication making me feel anymore depressed at all. In fact, I continued on with absolutely no issues. I did notice one negative factor. This was more specific for me. I returned to do dancing again after being away from it in College years ago. My muscle density is already far less, but I pushed through and was able to gain strength. However, during the last few months (3-6) the Accutane did affect me strength.my muscles were fatigued far earlier than before and my strength/core balance felt less sustainable for long periods.
    I have been given a hydroquinoin (sp?) cream @ 4% to help with the melasma/hyper pigmentation, however I may need laser to have my skin tone and complexion return to a more suitable color.
    Overall, I'm happy with my cystic acne being gone. It was worth taking Tis and worked for that purpose.
  • Sphingomonas paucimobilis: the worrisome infection
    This is part two of my patient journal. I feel more pain and what feels like more symptoms. I was taking Ciprofloxacin for the infection but treatment did not work and my doctor has had me stop taking it.

    For the past 5 days I have not had any sort of medication and there seems to be worsening symptoms. My doctor has sent me to a dermatologist but I have serious doubts on receiving proper treatment and I will have to wait a whole month for an appointment on a condition, that I have had for 4-5 months.

    I feel this is ridiculous and frustrating that no one else on the entire internet seems to be going through the same thing I am. I struggle for answers and they are not found, and I grow more sick.

  • This was recommended to help with high blood pressure and hypertension, not make it worse. Took me weeks to figure out it was the cause, and I was retaining about 10 pounds of water weight before I put it together. Online it is difficult to find anything except that this supplement will help with fluid retention, people need to be aware that it can make it worse.
