Avatar n tn Hi, I did a search under Ambien and brain damage, because I've been taking it for a while (10 mgs) and sometimes with a couple of glasses of wine, and I feel STOOPID. I don't take it every night, but still... I'm wondering if anyone knows whether this impairment could be permanent or not. Please email me at ktg_5000***@****!!! thank you!
Avatar f tn I have just started taking klonopin and I have always been a drinker, so i am nervous about liver damage and other problems like you speak of, but I'm afraid I don't have any experience to offer you. I do know that cold turkey withdrawal can be brutal on the body, so you have to wonder. But I also wonder about the damage of the combination of alcohol and klonopin, so I wonder about sleeping pills in the mix and imagine that, too could probably cause some damage. Are you doing any better?
1249990 tn?1269459540 I went to my GP that Monday morning, and she gave me Robinul to dry up my mouth and Ambien to sleep. Over the past 2 weeks, it's gotten a little better, meaning not as much increased saliva, but still enough that it is more than it was before. Sorry for the lengh, but my question is, could the needle have damaged the parotid gland or caused some sort of salivary gland nerve damage? Is it possible that the procedure just overstimulated the salivary glands?
Avatar f tn My doctor said physical exam looks normal, no infection is present, and that it may be nerve damage. UPDATE-burning sensation has traveled across and deep into my rectum. A second GYN exam shows its not related to the surgery. The symptoms are exact to PN problems. Could it possibly be anything else?
796642 tn?1238446580 I also have nerve pain. My hands and feet are numb and hurt. I take Lyrica and don't swell up unless I don't drink enough water or eat too much salty food. It helps a lot! I found that starting with a low dose and building up gradually was better than jumping right into a full dose. I take 50 mg Lyrica and valium (2.5mg) before I go to bed and sleep well. It knocks me out and deals with the pain at the same time.
Avatar f tn My doctor said physical exam looks normal, no infection is present, and that it may be nerve damage. I still have cloudy urine. Now what? Is this a permanent condition? Will it resolve itself? I did have one serious bout with herpes 30 years ago, but have never had a flairup. Since the burning started 4 weeks ago and it getting increasingly worse in intensitity as time goes on, but lessens after resting at night, I don't think it is related to the herpes.
Avatar n tn sysmptoms muscle twitching all over body(limbs,face,toungue,toes,stomach,etc) muscle spasms all over body nerve pain (fire like burning in legs and arms, especialy toes and fingers, umbness, pins and needles) nerve pain (stabbing, shooting, jabs elctric tearing like pain)comes and goes quickly and can be in multiple places at same time.
Avatar n tn i am sorry about your pain, however your doctors are right. i am 13 and i have a bulged disc, nerve damage, bone damage, overgrown bone, and all my ligaments are torn. i'm a competitive gymanst and nothing helps all you do is deal with it the best you can. good luck. but i guess you could try.... wearing a full time back brace ( i did that for a while and it helped for a few months) and get pain releiveing shots i haven't got one but many people on my team have.
2131719 tn?1335649292 I've been on Ambien 10mg since October 2011 and Xanax .25mg morning and night(except when I was in the hospital with chest pains (healthy heart just the FMS) they gave me like 1mg 4x a day). I cut the Xanax in half for the past two nights with no ill effects so far. I want to be able to only take them if I have an attack again. The Ambien doesn't work at all (and gives me HORRIBLE dreams) so I want to stop it completely as well.
Avatar m tn It has been suggested that the clamping of my nasal passages probably led to nerve damage. Ambien works on the GABA A receptors in the brain. I have tingles, pressure, burning, in my neck and head. Is this more nerve damage? I was hoping the side effects would wear off. The muscle/skin effects are better but what I'm left with is pretty scary. I just found a new doctor so I don't have a clear plan of what to do yet.
Avatar n tn Management in most cases would be divided into management of the primary condition to prevent further damage and adequate pain control. When systemic medications are not advisable, alternative methods of pain control such as nerve blocks may be tried. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician and a pain management specialist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn It's nerve damage done by the interferon. Since it's drug-induced nerve damage, it usually goes away after the meds are finished and out of your system. It can come and go throughout TX and even for a little while after TX is finished. Hope it does not last too long for you.
Avatar n tn Grinding your teeth may not sound like a big deal, but it can do damage to your bone and the nerve of your tooth. X-rays can reveal if there is already bone damage. I don't think that spaces between your teeth are a problem either. Unless some of the spaces are because you have lost some of your permanent teeth. This could cause other problems with your bite.
Avatar f tn And I have miastiagravis, a nerve disease, fibermialgia, anxiety and depression and bad allergies. And I'm on suboxone, ambien, phyrostigme/mestinon,clonazepam. Lately I been getting heart palpitations, sleepiness and numbness in the hands, and also in the feet. Some lightheaded and also dizziness. I have 3 kids n really trying to see if anyone knows what it could be also my hand feels real hot the last couple days when it's cold?
Avatar n tn Yes...Ambien does work wonders and I only need half one on those nights,,,I'm wide awake! I had a time span for about 3 to 4 weeks that I could not sleep for nothing and yes....Makes it hard to operate during days when you are not feeling good and exhausted on top of it. The ambien got me through that period and now I'm sleeping on my own again and no problem. Hope this helps..Good Luck!
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar f tn because many doctors are not aware of the w/d's from benzo's / anti - anxiey medications. I thought I used to have nerve damage from drinking, and I had GAD from drinking to much....but the truth is, after I tapered and finally quit...I don't. The only thing I truly have is slight panic attacks and sleep apneia...and that now, I can rejoice over the fact, I don't have to carry 7 different bottles of meds, any and everywhere I go. Just remember, tapering on benzo's takes time.
Avatar m tn Have residual nerve damage down front of legs, lost thigh strength, have constant pain, hard time sleeping, standing or sitting for long periods is painful. Take 55mg Oxycodone every 12 hours, take Topomax 200 mg 1xday, lexapro 20mg 1xday, Wellbutrin XL 300mg 1xday , Provigil 200mg 2xday, Zolpidem (Ambien) 10mg 1xday, testosterone injections and Lisinopril 10 mg 1xday. Only med change recently: Was taking Zolpidem (Ambien generic), 10mg until yesterday. Took Brand Ambien, 10mg last night.
Avatar n tn If your husband has pain from nerve damage, then this might help. I take two 300mg doses during the day and 600 at night. In combination with the Oxycodone, the night dose makes me very sleepy. I finished my 96 wks of Pegasys at the end of November. My end of tx and 6wk post tx qualitative PCR's showed no virus detected- I'm hopeful that the 3mo will be the same. Honey, if you see this, I lost your email while waiting for the result- thanks for the message.
Avatar n tn started smoking again but only if it was offered...hhhmmm...I have no liver damage and mild inflamation....and I have had this virus for 25 years....hhmmmm....maybe I'll go out and git me a bit ol bag o buds! My son just moved to California, says he can get a script for medical mj and they have 'providers' out there that grow it for medical purposes....maybe that is the wave of the future...we can go to the doc and get a script and smoke away! Sounds like a plan to me!
Avatar n tn Median nerve distribution involves the thumb.Burning pain and pins and needles sensation over a particular area indicate nerve impingement due to prolonged pressure on the nerve.The affected area gives you an idea of the type of nerve involved.As in the case of the median nerve, the thumb side of the hand is usually affected. I have noted that you are experiencing severe pain when flexing the digits of your involved hand.
Avatar n tn I am 5 months pregnant and worry everyday that the meds I take will hurt my baby...I now take Ambien every night and 2mg of Klonopin when anxiety takes over...I have bipolar disorder and stopped all medicine when I found out..I also was in a bad wreck over a year ago and have surgery on my neck and my back is in bad shape...I stopped all pain meds but since I am starting to "grow" my neck and back are killing me, my boobs are now a DDD...
Avatar n tn 5-2mg/day for anxiety and then switched OBGYNs - who switched me to Ambien instead for the last 2 mos. My daughter is perfect - now almost 3. I am 8 mos pregnant with second daughter and been taking Ambien throughout pregnancy and occassionally taking 0.5mg Klonopin. For those out there on Klonopin, it maybe best to cut down to 1 or .5mg if possible and keep it at low doses rather than stressing about eliminating it.
Avatar n tn The surgery involved cutting open her head and putting a clamp on the aneurysm. She spent about 12 days in the hospital and about 11 days home so far. She is having no pain from the incision or around her head. She complained of leg pain, which I believe to be muscle soreness, so the doctors checked her for blood clots; she has none. The only pain she now has is the leg pain and hemorrhoids but she cries and moans like she could just die!
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar n tn i didn't sleep to the point that i had become psychotic from lack of sleep and they were giving me 20mg of ambien to try and knock me out... and that didn't do it. i remember a nurse there telling me she had been a soma addict and that it was just hard as hell to get off of. i had worked for 8 years at a university here in atlanta doing phase three clinical drug trials and used for a long time while i was doing that. i had relapsed off of my eight years clean while at mercer university...
Avatar n tn The first time I didnt really think it was working I took it for the first four weeks and lost about 20lbs. The problem is I was taking it with a few other medication for a nerve disorder due to nerve damage during a surgery i had. The one thing I did notice Is that I started these meds at the same time. Peculiar side effect of one of these meds was that it made sodas taste horrible, now it was hard to tell which one it was.
Avatar n tn he is truly an inspiration to us all...hang in there and Thomas and Wizard can give you their testomonials and help you out with their suggestions......
Avatar n tn I am told that there is an improved MRI exam available which is especially designed to locate nerve damage, compression,etc. If so, where would this machine be found?
