- With a history of squamous cancer and pilonidal cyst and neuro issues should i be concerned ?
I have had a long history of bleeding from above anus, neuro issues like brain tingle and cognitive movement disorder, lumbar pain and weakness, buttock, groin, leg tingling and weakness. Cold feet. Anemic. My concern is this bleed from previously repaired pilonidal cyst has been chronic for years. My research indicates squamous cell cancer is an 80% causative factor in chronic pilonidal irritation/cyst. Since I was diagnosed w squamous nail bed in 2012, amputation 2014, should I be concerned. ? Doctor is unaware of cyst / bleed history. I am obese, but remarkably losing weight ... Loss of appetite. I am positive for esophageal metaplastic changes. Also urinary incontinence mild. Obviously I am concerned about metastatic cancer. No pain in lower spine. Just constant leg and buttock ache / tingle. I thought bleed was hemorrhoids. Not. Ca the mortician ?? Lol. Thanks for any input.

- Does lyrica cause neutropenia and if it does, how long does it take to subside after stopping the drug?
The patient is a 28 year old female who has been involved in a horrific car accident back in February 7th 2014. She had bilateral femural fracture along with fractured right tibia and fibula in addition to right humerus.

- I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal

Used for an endoscopy prep, great for what it does but gave me horrid and vivid nightmares
- High potassium blood levels caused by vitamin d3
I have Parkinson's and fell and broke my hip. Otherwise I have good health. While checking my blood, the doctor was extremely concerned that my potassium levels were above 5.0 and wanted to take rather drastic measures to correct it. Since I have no other symptoms, I was resistant. In the meantime, I thought I saw a study that said vitamin D supplementation could cause a false positive reading on potassium. I was taking 5000 units of D a day for over a year. I stopped taking it while I was in the hospital and the blood level potassium began to normalize.
I need the vitamin D and need to find out if it is truly detrimental or an illusion .

I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
