- Dysphagia with flomax to move kidney stones
I was experiencing extreme pain in right upper abdomen and was checked at the hospital and kidney stones were diagnosed. Flomax was prescribed in september 2014. I only took about 2 days worth after pain stopped. But then pain returned in December so i decided to continue taking flomax but i suddenly got stroke like complications so i went back to the hospital where they removed the kidney stones. But my dysphagia is still holding on today February 2 2015. I have seen an ent that said it looks fine and must be mechanical. I have a gastrologist appointment and a neurolist appointment coming up. Hopefully someone will give me an answer how to fix this. In the meantime i can not eat solids(no applesause ) i just chug water and cough it back up if it goes the wrong way. And the same with liquid fruit shakes which are all that i can tolerate. Thank God i have not developed pneumonia or other issues but the constant coughing is putting a toll on me. For anyone who wants tips on dealing with this just keep looking for anything that can help relieve your swallow function.

After my Hip Replacement in 2013 I got a really sore mouth, my husband looked inside to see if he could see anything and it was full of little white blisters even on my tonsils. Went to the dr and was told it was Mouth Sores/fungal infection possibly from this medicine. I couldn't eat anything but was thirsty all the time. I lost 15 lbs in a little over 2 weeks due to not being able to eat. Dr gave me Swish and Spit and they healed up within a few days.

Lower Back pain came on suddenly simutaneously with leg pain. Did nothing to cause the pain. Leg pain in thighs (front and back), knees (front and back), shins, even the sides of my legs.
