Depo provera and chest pain

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and chest pain

depo-provera

The docotors believe I may have a progesterone problem due to Depo Provera. I was on Depo for 6 years and went off the shot in Sept. Does anyone know if the effects of this shot can linger and cause lower progesterone levels?
once you have taken the shot it takes 12-18 mos to leave your body when you stop. there is no reversal to it!!! you will have to wait and see what happens and the chest pain and shortness of breath is a common side effect and i recommend if it gets worse go to the ER. DON"T GET ANOTHER SHOT...you will regret it later down the road. good luck and i hope everything turns out good. love....
You girls have to discontinue Depo Provera at once and I highly recommend never putting any hormones into your bodies ever again. I have experienced a living nightmare from Depo Prover for the past three years. After I got the Depo shot I went home and researched on the web about the drug. I cried for three hours in fear that that could happen to me. What happened was worse. Five days after the shot a menstrual cycle started that would not cease. It wasn't a normal cycle.
here is my web site and depo group web address. please feel free to take a look and ask me questions!!! love...kimmie http://health.groups.yahoo.
I will never go on Depo Provera again. My daughter was on Depo Provera at college, and discontinued the shot and has lost that weight and is thin again. Fitday.com's free site has helped me keep up with my carb intake, and also tells me how many calories, how much fat etc. I use. It does this automatically when I put my food in for the day. Also Magic Bus has a forum where you can learn how to lose weight quick and even post on a challenge to keep you honest and responsible.
I went to the ER last ngiht with severe chest pain and a sharp pain shooting down my left arm. They did tests to see if I had a blood clot and they were all negative. So they sent me home with an anti-inflammatory and pain meds. They said I have a lot of inflammation around my chest wall but couldn't explain why, they said maybe the Lupron is causing it. I emailed my obgyn this morning and she has never heard of this either. Just wanted to ask here incase others have had it. thanks.
I have had this problem for atleast 10 years, and i feel like it runs my life. This stupid rash occurs at anytime, and always starts on my chest and works it way up to my neck and face, it makes me extremley hot. i will also get it if i drink, work out, or in hot weather. I have very very VERY fair skin, so when i get even slightly red...its RED. I have notcied that it will occur when im more nervous, but it has also occured in happy, sad, exciting situations.
A couple days passed and the pain started to improve. It still increased upon deep inspiration and certain movements-like lifting my arm up in front of my chest and turning movements. my lungs are clear and the cold symptoms have gone away. My pulse ox reading is normal, also. Last night I coughed and felt a CRACK/POP in my chest behind my right breast followed by an excruciating pain that lasted several minutes before I could even move.
And im having these pains in my mid and right upper abdomen and radiating pain through my chest, and all through my right shoulder and upper back. My doctor figured it was textbook case gall bladder disease, so he did an ultrasound of my gall bladder, liver, stomach and kidneys, but everything was fine. I took a series of blood tests and ct scans and everything is working fine. I wanted to know if maybe my symptoms are side effects of using the depo provera shot.
What muscle could be pulled that would cause pain in both above the chest and my armpit/shoulder? Or what ligament could/would be torn? My doctors don't know what to do with me anymore. I've tried Ibruprophen AND aspirin as well as Naproxen, but I'm not sure if they work seeing as how the pain comes and goes so quickly anyway. And, do pulled muscles last for more than 7 months? It's not a pain I have every day, and I seem to excecise okay, too.
Six months later I have had drastic changes in my personality, depression, apathy, lower sex drive, constant hunger, swelling, headaches, vision problems and chest pain, dizziness, fatigue, naseua, weight gain, paranoia and just a general feeling of being off. I didn't feel like myself. I documented all this in a journal and finally got to a point where I couldn't take it anymore. I have recently gone off the pill and am finally starting to feel like myself again.
It actually constipated me for the first few days and gave me heartburn and chest pain. I don't know if that is normal or not. My doctor says I am insulin resistant and he thinks this will help me loss weight. Should I ask to increase it? Or is it to soon?
brown periods lasting a week, leg weakness(feels like growing pains), cramping, sharp abdominal pain on and off, hot and cold sweats. I took the depo provera shot the beginning of January and didn't have my period for four months. When I finally got my period it lasted exactly two weeks, started out being all brown blood and continued into regular blood. Through out the time I have had the worst sharp pains bringing me to my knees because it hurt so bad but only for a few seconds.
By any chance are you on depo provera? My thyroid levels have been out of whack the whole time I was on the depo shot, I had my last shot april 07 , and sept 4th was my 2nd normal tsh level , last may 06 it was (normal) but I still continured to feel like **** . I had been hypo for 13 yrs on .25 mcg of synthroid with no problem,then started the depo shot. Tsh level was way too low.

I am pretty healthy, and am noton any current meds but Depo Provera and I have been on that for 3 years. Three days ago, my chest started hurting when I breathed, the area under my neck. It hurt to take a really deep breath in and last night the pressure and pain moved into my right shoulder as well. Everytime I bend over, I cant take ANY breath in at all and I feel alot of pressure right there. This has ben coming and going for three days, it is not ongoing.

I'm a little older than you (12 years older) but I've been dealing with excessive hair since I was 13. It started on my chest and then went to my neck and stomach and a little on my chin. I've become pretty good concealing it with shaving, plucking (which is bad for your skin and causes ingrown hairs) and then applying makeup over the hyperpigmentation. It's still extremely aggravating and it seems so masculine.
Ever since this elevated d dimer result I have been unable to continue my daily life, I feel rather depressed and anxious. Since then I have experienced continuing chest pain, shortness of breath, and muscle cramps (mostly in legs). I also would like to mention my significant weight loss, I rarely have an appetite dropping 15 pounds. I have had three EKGs, an echo stress test, several d dimers (one being positive), three chest x-rays, and 24 hr halter monitor.
I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday and I'm hoping they take my complaints seriously. 9 months ago, I took the Depo Provera shot for birth control. About 6 weeks later, all my symptoms started. I barely even noticed them at first, but here's what's happened: 15 lb.
Hi lisafc2000- Try looking at the website below and the explanation of vulvodynia below. I've brought this up with my specialst and she doesn't seem to think this is my problem because they're supposedly haven't beeen any reports of clitoral swelling and sensitivity. However, the majority of my swelling is now in my inner labia. I'm going to print some the stuff on the website and bring it to my specialst nenext time. DON'T BE AFRAID TO POINT OUT STUFF OR BE PERSISTANT WITH YOUR DOCTORS.
Plus I have the fatigue, etc, but I always figured it was from working two jobs (one full, one part-time). Even weirder are the right-side chest/back pain. Feels like someone stabbing into my back and going through my chest. Really annoying.... What do y'all think? Any ideas, besides going to a dr, which I pretty much hate doing now after bad experiences.
An upper and lower endoscopy are pretty comprehensive tests to evaluate the bowel for the major GI diseases. Other causes of pain in the upper left side would be pancreatitis, liver or gallbladder disease (can atypically present with left-sided pain), or problems with the spleen. I would consider a CT scan for further evaluation of the pancreas. If there is concern about the small bowel, more specialized tests like capsule endoscopy can be considered.

Hey, does anyone here have any advice that can help? I'm 26, was on depo-provera for 7+ years, and haven't had a period since I started. My husband and I were married july 30 2010, and my last depo injection was mid july 2010. I was due for another one in October but we decided to come off it to see what happens.
