Common Questions and Answers about Epipen and heart attacks


645800 tn?1466864555 i'm sure that if i could actually use an ilight>EpiPenilight> these panic ilight>attacksilight> would not be so bad ilight>andilight> i have a lot of them living out here in the country and all of the bees and wasps around here. So if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on how i might overcome this i would be grateful.
Avatar n tn i was rushed to emergency, given benedryl ilight>andilight> sent home 4 hours later. i got an ilight>Epipenilight> for i was told, although rare, that i could have a secondary reaction within the next week. Sure enough November 5 i had a second reaction (bi-phasic reaction). i was given the epipen by my mother for i passed out and couldn't give it myself. Back to the hospital.
Avatar f tn But i think it can be different for different people. Panic ilight>attacksilight> can be caused by allergies, so can pseudo ilight>heartilight> ilight>attacksilight>, but if they continue while you haven't eaten any of your known allergens they might be to something you don't know about - a friend of mine gets panic attacks as a reaction to preservatives! So you might need to do an elimination diet - eat only very basic food for a few days, if there's no reactions, bring in other kinds of food one by one.
Avatar n tn long story short..this episode had possibly damaged my ilight>heartilight> ilight>andilight> the ilight>heartilight> attack enzyme was elevated. i had a murmur surgically repaired 27 years ago and now doctors are saying that there could be electrical problems to the heart,etc.......wanted to keep me in hospital to do a catherization that would check heart electrical impulses but i convinced my primary doc to let me do it on a outpatient basis...
Avatar f tn i have Aquagenic Urticaria since a year and i couldnt do anything, can even go out in the rain, can't sweet, can't cry, can't take a shower ( i take a real quick one 1 min shower) and sometimes have to take my ilight>epipenilight>, if its hot or humid i have to stay in a cool place ilight>andilight> can't go to the beach or pool :( im on a treatment right now and can do all of that and my dermatologist want's to stop it :S i always dream about going to Cuba or some hot place and my doctor crash all of my dreams :((((( i ju
Avatar m tn it causes me to have spasm coughing and if i cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in ilight>andilight> out completely for 10 to 15 seconds ilight>andilight> i thought i had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar n tn i at 41 in September of 2001 suffered two strokes, a ilight>heartilight> attack, ilight>andilight> lost my vision within a thirty day span. i had been on hormone replacement for ninty days. While hospitalized from the heart attack i was diagnosed with a clotting disorder that was evedently brought out by the hormones. i cannot get anyone to explain to me what my disorder is. i am told there are not many people with Phosphatidyl Serine, but i was not screened before i was put on the hormones.
Avatar n tn i have begun experiencing major withdrawal symptons, tremors, lighted-headedness, hot/cold feelings and basically reliving the feelings i had which got me on xanax to begin with eventhough circumstances have changed ilight>andilight> i've dealt with my grief. Yesterday, my ilight>heartilight> started racing ilight>andilight> i was thinking i might be having a heart attack. i thought this fear to be very unrealistic. i began thinking, "what is wrong with me?" i suspected it might have something to do with xanax.
Avatar n tn My tongue swelled up today! My wife injected me with my ilight>Epipenilight> ilight>andilight> it slowed it down. i was rushed to hospital by ambulance ilight>andilight> have been given steroid injections and antihistamine. (which made me sleep for 2 hours) My tongue reduced in size and i was sent home. Consultant said, i was a "wierd" case as they still have no idea what causes it, gave me a new Epipen and sent me on my way. Funnily enough i did take penicillin some time ago, but it had no effect on me at the time.
Avatar n tn i felt a little insomnia and the rapid ilight>heartilight> beat. This time it was not nearly as bad ilight>andilight> i also knew exactly what ilight>andilight> why i felt it so it wsn't so bad to deal with. What does any or all of this mean? i don't know to you what it will mean? Hopefully it will just help some of you. Compassion is what i feel for people dealing with this stuff and there are not a lot of people who even understand it. Especially some of the doctors! i hope i can help the way my doctors and friends helped me.
Avatar m tn What is the current practice in preventitive medicine of ilight>attacksilight> ilight>andilight> also what is the current practice of treating indiviudals with accute ilight>attacksilight>?? can type iii be passed on to offspring? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Today i took it ilight>andilight> had some ilight>heartilight> palpatations. thank goodness i didn't read this post first or i would have been sure it was an reaction. i do appreciate you sharing your experience. i am on the fence. it helps in a lot of way but disables to i.e. can't drive and stagger. katie r i am waiting to hear a reply on your post as i wonder the same thing. also, DOES ANYONE EVER HAVE POST ACUTE WiTHDRAWLS. TODAY iS 1 MONTH for ME WiTHOUT ViCODEN. But, i still crave it.
544292 tn?1268886268 it makes me very angry that these Doctors know ilight>andilight> aren't telling people. i don't believe that they are ignorant. i've been over ilight>andilight> over it again and again. it makes no sense that i would know more as a user of the drug than they would. There's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on other drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. it's a Narcotic. it's just been slipped thru the schedule.
333672 tn?1273796389 The drug significantly reduces MS ilight>attacksilight>. However, it has serious side effects, with possible ilight>heartilight>, lung, ilight>andilight> eye toxicity ilight>andilight> increased risk of infection. Patients must be closely monitored, and regular eye exams are advised. in MS, white blood cells attack the myelin sheaths that protect nerve cells. Gilenya, the first drug in its class, keeps white blood cells penned up in lymph nodes by taking away the chemical key they need to unlock the lymph node door.
Avatar f tn if it is a bad one (complete closure for many seconds) then my ilight>heartilight> pounds ilight>andilight> i sweat right down my arms ilight>andilight> legs. i sleep with a cough drop in my mouth to help prevent them but now my mouth is irritated - i use sugar free to prevent tooth decay but too much artificial sweetener gives one some awful gas pains. i live in fear of not being able to stop a spasm - even something like a dental filling (mouth open, dry throat).
Avatar f tn Controlled with two high dose anti histamines daily, ilight>andilight> carry ilight>epipenilight>. Skin irritation, small sores that are very painful ilight>andilight> last for months each, seem to follow a cycle, ( aprox 6 -8 at one time across body, limbs) General skin itchiness. Water retention, new prob since 2013, furosemide daily. Miscarriage. Hearing loss sudden, since 2002, no aid will work as is a brain recognition issue apparently, told to learn to live with. Very difficult if multiple sounds, very tiring indeed.
1666434 tn?1325265950 My 20-month-old son got a tiny sip of a black coffee drink (no milk or other ingredients added) and almost needed his ilight>EpiPenilight> Jr before his reaction stopped progressing on its own. His face, back, ilight>andilight> chest got littered in hives, even his eyelids. His eyes got all red and itchy, and his nose started running off his face, which induced some sneezing and coughing. He then acted very cranky and off, and even felt fevered, for the next two days.
Avatar f tn We got almost to the hospital, his eyes rolled back in his head ilight>andilight> passed out. He shot himself with the ilight>epipenilight> just before we got in the car. The had to come to the car and roll him in. it was bad. They had a hard time getting him back. You can't test as long as you are on steroids/ benadryl or anything. So he had to go without eating bread, red meat, tomatoes, lettuce, onions and mayo for a month so that they could test him. His skin test flared up at the wheat almost immediately.
Avatar f tn it was mostly due to the baby aspirin they had me taking to prevent ilight>heartilight> ilight>attacksilight>!!! it was also due to caffeine ... soda pop, coffee, ilight>andilight> CHOCOLATE! i didn't want to hear that. My stomach was very red, and they also found i had a hiatal hernia. As i've gotten older, i now have to prop myself up in bed with lots of pillows. i can't eat after supper, or i'll have problems. Even high-fat meals and red meat have become a problem because they create ACiD.
Avatar n tn it is painful ilight>andilight> my throat ilight>andilight> even my ilight>heartilight> is burning together. is because of the menthol that the cough drop has or what...?
530191 tn?1214166411 The hives nearly go away at night but start fresh in the morning, mostly on forearms ilight>andilight> thighs. My ilight>heartilight> goes out to all of you suffering with hives. it *****! i will post with my doctor's findings. i am printing out info on APD and taking it in since it's not well known, even in the medical community.
Avatar n tn Sometimes they are red splotches on my skin, other times they are thick welts, both itch unreal. My eyes, lips ilight>andilight> feet swell also. My eyes ilight>andilight> lips swell till i look like someone has beat me...Any sugestions???
Avatar f tn Along with the swelling my chest also hurts, only on the right side, its been checked out ilight>andilight> there are no ilight>heartilight> problems thankfully, ilight>andilight> i freeze even in very hot weather. i have thyroid disease but medication has regulated that...fibromyalgia as well. i am gonna lose my mind......i need help!!!
