I did all that he suggested and my HIV status was negative which I knew it would be and my regular doctor prescribed blood pressure meds for me and sent me home. At that time he stated his only concerns were my BP and the fact that my kidney function was elevated. He then stated that he would monitor these things over the next couple months. Approx 2 months later Sept 2008 I started having severe acid indigestion, abdominal pains, nausea, vomiting, loose stools.
I only took 2 pills because I had horrible side effects and went to the ER for bloody diaherria, blood clots in my stool and the worst stomach cramps and pain in my life. Needless to say I didn't take that awful med again however a week after being off of it (the blood in the stool went away) I developed some type of joint and muscle pain and a sever debilitating headache that has lasted for 2 weeks.
Dizziness is unlikely to be caused by high blood pressure unless it is excessively high and/or associated with blood pressure fluctuation between high blood pressure and low blood pressure. On the other hand, if you have never had high blood pressure in the past a complete evaluation, including testing for unusual causes of high blood pressure should be performed, even if you did not have dizziness.
By that weekend I was feeling bad again, and went to the ER and my blood pressure was very high. (176/80) All tests were again fine, EKG, blood work, chest xray, but this time they wanted me to spend the night . They had also given me Nitro G in the ER and I had a horrible headache for 2 full days, nausea , dizziness. My doctor did a full nuclear scan, with stress test and then another scan. They found nothing So I stayed home for two days and rested . BP was average 135/70.

8 weeks ago I developed a horrible case of asthmatic bronchitis brought on by the mycoplasma bacteria. I was in and out of the er for breathing issues. Took Levaquin and then azithromyicin. My md put my on Singulair and an Advair diskus. During the process I lost 12 pounds and had a ongoing fever.
About 2 hrs after i took Levaquin i was rushed to the ER with my whole left arm hurting and so weak through my whole body specially my arm, along with my blood pressure at 149/100. and my pulse at 119. I thought i was going to pass out, I was so nervous i was shaking all over. I had tests for heart attack stroke and brain scan which all came back normal so i know that it had to be the Levaquin which this was the first time i ever took it. My father in law was going 180 miles per hour to ER.
Went back after 2 weeks and the dr said the bladder infection was gone, but I had to keep on with the Levaquin as I was showing signs of pneumonia and he took another blood test. On the 3rd week of Levaquin, the dr called and said I was highly allergic to Levaquin and get to his office immediately. He gave me a new antibiotic shot and within an hour I was very ill. The next morning I woke up with a fever, unable to breathe and move my left side.

Hello, I am 28F and 2 years back was diagnosed with severe bladder infection which was a complication from a surgery that I got done. I was prescribed levaquin and within 3 mos I recovered completely. 5 months ago, suddenly out of the blue I started to have frequent urges (10 a day, mostly during daytime) to urinate along with pressure in my bladder/ urethra area. Every time there is medium to large quantity of urine. Urine tests and Cystoscopy did not show anything. No infection. Nothing.
old post-menopausal (5+ yrs.) woman having feelings of pressure on my bladder and the need to urinate which never goes away and becomes more acute after urinating. There is no pain or itching. This began suddenly about 10 days ago after week at beach. I was in water, sitting in wet bathing suit and in heat. Have had urinalysis, urine culture, pelvic ultrasound of ovaries and bladder - all normal. No blood, no sugar, no protein, etc.
Since November 06, I started to feel pins and needles in my left arm that eventually spread to my right arm. The pins and needles got progressively worse in December and January. Most nights, I harly slept because of the pain. Due to the part work that I did which was very physical at the time, I figured my problem was related to that so I stopped. I told my doctor who recommended some physical therapy. It seemed to work and I did get some relief.
I have been having blurred vision, dizziness, pressure and fullness in ears and head and behind eyes, muscle weakness, joint pain, crick in neck, and severe fatigue for over a year now. Oh! also heart pounding and times where I can hear it in my head and feel it. Also deep itching sensations in my muscles that of course you can't scratch like pins and needles. Been to ENT nothing wrong with ears, been to primary doctor MRI normal. Switched Doctors because primary basically laughed at me.
Most folks here think it is something in the environment like all the dust that is covering everything that is causing my symptoms. Every morning, I blow my nose and there is alot of brown and dried blood in it. After I shower, and blow again, there are smaller spots. After that it stays fairly clear until the next morning. The headache or pressure in my head is constant; however, is not really painful.
However, for the last six months, I have still been dealing with intermittent ear and eye pressure and tingling and burning pains in my arms (around my elbow), legs (around my knee), jaw, and mouth. Most of the symptoms are isolated to the left side of my face and body. I have seen several internists, an infectious disease specialist, two ENTs, a neurologist, an allergist and immunologists, an oral surgeon with TMJ expertise, an eye doctor, and a dermatologists.
She prescribed me Nexium, Claritin-d, Mucinex-D, Nasonex and antibiotic Levaquin which I am taking now, but annoying ear pressure (and also a lump in the throat) are still there. Can you help me?
Hi Jason's I don't know if this helps but I do know that the prostate can take a will to heel as its hard to get the drugs needed to that area of the body low blood flow so hold tuff for a while longer, and if you don't see results head straight back. Just as a matter of interest what were the symptoms you had as I'm currently have pain in my testicles and suspect it could be what you had?
I then went to a more progressive ENT in 2005 who did an ethmoidectomy (removed the sinuses from between my eyes)and I really thought my problems were over. My pain and pressure were completely gone and I felt great. Until.....the beginning of the year I started having sinus infection problems with dizzyness and feeling totally lousey. A week and a half ago I was on my 3rd sinus infection when I finally went to a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner and had her culture my sinuses.
Mild headaches with a feeling of pressure throughout and achy neck and shoulders. The fatigue and muscle weakness are the worst parts. Trying to keep up with my kids makes me worn within a couple minutes. My docs all asked if I was under alot of stress and I am not. I have a low stress job, easy classes and my kids are great! I'm to schedule an appt to follow up with the Neurologist in the next week or so so will check back and share my results.
My PSA is normal, prostate is not swollen, blood pressure normal, no cholesterol, blood chemistry is fine. I don't smoke and drink only occasionally. I am about 10-15 pounds overweight but that's not unusual for a man my age. I don't exercise enough but I do watch what I eat. In every occurence, the pattern is the same: blood in my semen and more often than not, small blood clots. When I urinate after, more blood comes out along with a medium to large size blood clot.

I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Since that time, I have seen two Urologists, have had multiple xrays, blood work and urine tests (the blood and urine all come back clean). I have had a VCUG to check my bladder, lithotripsy to remove the kidney stone from my left kidney, an MRI of my pelvis and abdomen, a CT scan of my pelvis and abdomen, lasix renal scan and cytoscopy of my penis.
Have had urinalysis, urine culture, pelvic ultrasound of ovaries and bladder - all normal. No blood, no sugar, no protein, etc. Examinations for yeast and bacerial infections were negative. Was treated for possible urethritis with 3 day dose of Levaquin of 250 mg, then 3 days of 500 mg Levquin, then switched to doxycline 200 mg a day. Just started 2nd day of doxycycline and feeling no better - not sure when I would notice anything. No recent sexual activity.
