Family doctor put me on effexor due to anxiety over this ordeal. Have constant burning, frequent urination, 20 times a day, and still very tender and hurting urethra. UA clear the last three tests. Urologist did a PST test which I tested positive for. He is telling me I have Interstitial Cystitis. I'm scheduled for 6 DSMO treatments along with daily doses of Elmiron. He told me that the UTI's I had for the past 3 months along with the trauma from the cath. triggered the IC.
I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.

So, I've been having all sorts of issues lately and I can't help but want to blame them all on a possible lupus diagnosis. Complicating matters is the fact that I've been out of work and uninsured for about 7 months and my next set of benefits don't kick in for another 3 months! That's a LONG time to wait to get any treatment! The symptoms and problems keep building up. What to do!? Here's my history so far. I had a high C-reactive protein test and ANA screen of 1:640, homogeneous pattern.
I have an appointment with a urologist tomorrow about it and im going to print this out because you all have done such a good job describing exactly what is happening to me (lightning bolts shooting up my *** from my perineum). Mine has been more frequent lately. I had my first and only kidney stone a year and five months ago so ive been curious if i might be passing another. Then i though it was a prostate problem (stay with me ladies) but now that im reading this, im all screwed up.
Went to see my new doc three months ago and she refused my request for a Lorasapam script and instead prescribed effexor. I tried to last the three week initial period but the side effects were increased anxiety and I just couldn't hang with it. Frustrated as I was still losing sleep and in a near state of panic I sent off for an internet script of Lorazapam. Unfortunately it was 2.5 Mg pills and I think the higher dose has done me in. I had previously taken the .

I came upon this thread as I surfed for an explanation to symptoms of lightheadedness, frequent urination and blurred vision. I have been diagnosed with depression and have taken mirtazapine for a few years. I recently got word that my job of 30 years will be eliminated at the end of the year and that a friend has prostate cancer. The content here leads me to believe that my symptoms are most likely anxiety related, caused by recent troubling news.

My aim here is to state as succinctly as possible the new set of symptoms as they had developed since I began the new medication package of sodium valproate(NAVAL) and venlafaxine(effexor) in April/May of 2007 and as these symptoms were exhibited; firstly, as of 30 November 2007, the date of the first consultation summarised below with my psychiatrist; and secondly, as of 13 November 2008, the date of my last consultation.
Diarrhoea, dizziness, heartburn, gas, unusual tiredness or weakness, abnormal dreams and anxiety, muscle tension, yawning---and, I should add, frequent urination due to 27 years on lithium. 5.11.2 The stimulation of my libido, my id, my libidinal urges continues. Indeed one can only avoid it if one keeps entirely away from the print and electronic media.
In December my symptoms began as an intense burning upon urination and frequent need to pee. I thought it was a UTI and got antibiotics but the pain did not go away. Soon, I started having vulval burning and abnormal discharge. I was treated with Diflucan and Monistat. The symptoms did not resolve, so I went back. She performed a wet mount swab and saw no yeast. A gynecologist suggested I use baking soda for cytolytic vaginosis. It provides only temporary relief but.
It is an idea, a process, not easily described, answered or understood and to expatiate on this aspect of the problem would quickly lead to a greater prolixity than the one in which I have already engaged here in this lengthy account. 4.1.6 Frequent urination and memory problems related, in part and perhaps, to the medications and shock treatments I had back in 1968, were new problems by the year 2001.
(h) defecating with a slight degree of diarrhoea on average once every 4 to 5 hours during the 16 hours I am awake which, with the frequent urination and the off-and-on sleepiness/fatigue has a soporific effect on my general energy levels. It feels as if I am either eliminating waste or getting sleepy/about to feel fatigued just about all the time.
In the meantime he wants to try to reduce the amount of headaches I am having, and prescribed two meds, Axert and Effexor XR. The Axert I am to take when I have a headache comming on and the Effexor XR I will be taking everyday. He said the Effexor will also help with the fatigue and boost my energy level. Any information about the EMG or nerve conduction velocity test, OR the Axert or Effexor would be greatly appreciated!!!! I guess my BIG question right now would be.....

Lithium toxicity in no special order- Blurry vision Forgetfulness off balance (running into things) really bad hand tremors hallucinations not eating frequent urination Now all of these sound like some normal Lithium side effects. If you are in doubt get you blood level's checked. You can become toxic from 600mg to 900mg. It happened to me and the worst part was people telling me something wasn't right with me and I didn't believe them. Better to be safe.
My last post I wrote about me bloating and frequent urination I saw what you wrote and I want to let you know when I post to others don't go and post on mine cause you made me very upset what you wrote....
Thanks for your original post and your update. I am a 60 year old female and have suddenly had frequent urination to the point where I feel like I have to go several times a day and get no relief after going. I have constant bladder pressure. It is awful! My doc started me on 25 mg of Zoloft (today is my 5th dose) and I feel WORSE then I did before I started taking it plus I can't sleep even though I am taking Ambien.
Often now as a grown adult it is a 50/50 deal where I need to go now or I can find myself getting through the car ride and never had to go. My problem more is not the frequent urination but the need to go number 2 and gas pains. This DOES interfere with my life greatly and with many relationships! I cannot do many things with my child and husband. I cannot go for hikes or long walks with my friends because of this condition. I cannot sing at my church which I greatly desire to do.
Sounds too good to be true. (AND IT IS!) The fact is, there's already pain killers here in the house and I'm not going to take any of those either. I'm not taking anything. I'm going to ice it, lay down, rest and realize that my body has been thru a heelllla fight and it just needs a break, a breath. A moment. A freakity frackity day off. I've been in a tough battle for 21 solid cold turkey days and before that; the taper AKA "Let the pills run out....
I was in excruciating pain so I called the dr and he told me to stop Lexapro and start effexor. I took the effexor and immediately had the same effects initially as the celexa (trust me I know why some people go wacko on these kinds of drugs)Well I had had it I didn't want to feel like that anymore so I stopped. I knew better to just stop but I figured with all the side effects I was having I didn't want to try another one out.
Another visit to the doctor and he advised me to quit taking the Buspar and gave me Effexor. I took two tablets and on the third day decided that I would live with the anxiety rather than take the medicine. I felt as if my insides were cooking. I literally felt like I was on fire. So, I quit taking everything for a week. Felt a little better, but the anxiety/diarrhea/nausea still lingered. After a week I started taking the Buspar again and this is when I vomited for 2 weeks straight.
One theory I have, and it's just a theory from someone doped up on Provigil and Effexor, is that some people are more sensitive to changes in their body and may feel the symptoms of ms sooner than the average Joe, and therefore nothing shows up on tests because it's too early. I'm not saying that's me, I'm just saying I don't see why this couldn't be possible.
I have to wait until November to see an endocrinologist, but in the mean time, my doctor suggested I try an anti-anxiety med since anxiety can cause headaches. I was prescribed Effexor and took it for about a week, but that just made me tired, nauseated, and unusually depressed about my situation. I also tried over the counter GABA and L-Theanine. In large quantities, these two seem to limit my symptoms.
So like I said the symptoms are not the same but like you, I've been consuming caffeine my whole life and all of the sudden boom... The only medicine I take is Effexor XR and I've been taking it long before this problem occur. Like you said, I rally wish someone could explain to us what's going on because sometime I'm feeling like I'm going mental! I've talked to about 4 doctors and 5 or 6 pharmacist and none were able to provide me with a concrete answer!
I just wanted to say that for the last 3-4 days, i have been extremely dizzy, nausous, diahrrea just wont stop, and chills really bad. I have read the forums and i am on effexor, have been for a long time, and trust me it doesnt help these symptoms. I am really worried. I dont eat alot of wheat and i know that i dont drink that much milk. I have a doctor's appt today, so if i find out anything i will let everyone know.
