  • 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.
  • Weighted feeling in legs
    I was prescribed tizanidine for lower back pain. I have sciatic nerve issues and fibromyalgia. I also have ptsd and just started remembering skiing accident that I had 19 years ago at age of 15 where I suspect concussion and sinal injury that was left untreated do to to medical neglect (waiting on x-ray results). I thought I was having muscle memories until I seen commercial about varicose vein removal and how weighted or heavy leg feelings where disappeared after surgery. I have very noticeable and thick as a snake varicose veins in my legs. I was looking up side effects I have been having dizziness, numbness in back, nausea, trouble bm while taking pill and hot flashes when messing a dose. I thought why not check deep vein thrombosis (which I suspect I have because of varicose veins). Low and behold there are others with this problem. So now I can add that to list. When I miss a dose my legs feel weighted down. I have only been on tizanidine for 1 month and 2 weeks. Very low dose to start 2mg 3x day. Only other meds are vitamins and metformin (which I am on another break from for 3 days now). I feel side effects of tizanidine are worse than benifits.
  • Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
    My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
  • Chills while on tizanidine
    Extremely sensitive to cold and have chills several times a day
  • Off label use of drugs for peripheral neuropathy causing memory loss (1 response)
    I have peripheral neuropathy with standard symptoms of burning, tingling, stabbing pain on the tops of my feet. I have had this condition for over 15 years getting worse over time. The last 5 years I have seen a couple of doctors and through trial and error we settled on a combination of Savella and Methadone to dampen the pain which can go from a nuisance constant 2 to "I'm ready to cut off my feet" constant 8. Taking Savella and Methadone keeps me at a 2 or below except in the evenings when it can get to 5 or 6 and keep me awake. Over a period of a year or so, and I can't remember when it started, I was given Tizanidine, Pramipexole, Oxcarbazpine, Gabapentin and Lyrica (at separate times). I do not remember which of these I was on for the longest or at what point I noticed I was unable to remember what happened the day before, conversations I had with co-workers, decisions and agreements with my manager and things I had done earlier in the week or month. I'm sure a timeline could be put together but since I had lost short term memory I could not do it even now. When I finally figured out what was happening, I was close to losing my job as a Computer Hardware Engineer, which requires extreme concentration and memory. I stopped taking whatever I was on at the time and looked for anything to help me regain my memory and ability to concentrate. I am now taking herbal supplements and using iPhone apps to help me regain concentration and memory. After over 6 months of being off of these drugs I am close to having my previous facilities back. I cannot stress enough the importance of a doctor talking with their patients about memory loss and the ability to concentrate when taking these types of drugs. One of my doctors just gave me Topiramate to try and help with the evening pain and after reading the side effects I will not even try it. Better to be in pain and keep my job.

    What really bothers me is I think simply taking one additional pill of Savella will solve my pain issue, but my doctors scoff whenever I make a suggestion and try to put me on something else. After making a medication suggestion one doctor threatened to take me off all medication. I guess he showed me who's the boss. All this is causing me to trust doctors less and less.
