Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia in hospitalized patients


Avatar n tn the pain in my collarbone and back of neck had for months, but just didn't complain about it. was hospitalized for tingling in arms and legs last month. ct scan showed showed the swollen lymph nodes in neck abdomen and pelvis......mentioned doing i biopsy. but released me telling me to follow up with the hemo/oncologist. i pray he ok as well.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
200220 tn?1361955154 I recently went off the risperadol that the pshchiatrist was giving me for the anxiety/panic symptoms caused by my thyroid. He said he has had a lot of success with his thyroid patients that it helped them and it did help me. I got rapidly feeling much better. I had been on it about 7 months and was started to have spacyness and extreme tiredness and he said how about going off of the med. I ofcourse said yes and was very happy.
Avatar m tn [2] Physicians should also keep in mind not to deprive patients of regular meals and should organize examinations and procedures in a way that will not keep their patients starving for long. These patients are quite often hospitalized and this risk is real. In ESLD, the liver has lost some of its capacity to synthesize and metabolize protein, glycogen and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL).
Avatar f tn Hi, By your spelling of Hospitalized and Realized, I trust that you are in England or in a Country with an affiliation for the British form of the language? I see that you cancelled the appointment with the Cardiologist since your Doctor discontinued the Beta Blocker. Did your Doctor recommend not seeing the Cardiologist, or was that a decision made simply due the discontinuation of the Beta Blocker?
Avatar f tn This risk seems to be greater in elderly patients on high-dose therapy, especially females. The symptoms are persistent and in some patients appear to be irreversible. All antipsychotic agents should be discontinued if tardive dyskinesia develops. Should it be necessary to reinstitute treatment, increase the dosage of the agent, or switch to a different antipsychotic agent, the syndrome may be masked.
Avatar f tn Even though I was forewarned that she is ready to end it all. I still find myself in shock and extremely sad. A friend wrote:' doesn't have to happen'. I have to agree. She didn't have to end it all had medical professional world wide accept ME/CFIDS as a real illness which affect our every system, It didn't have to happen if we're offered hope , compassion,, and effective treatment. Lives, young and old, don't have to be wasted.
Avatar f tn You will not be able to change your physical out come by avoiding dealing with the elephant in the room, and the elephant in the room is your anorexia/bulimia, so start there! Good luck..............
Avatar f tn 11yrs- had to sit out of PE as I had lower back pain-had a doctors note-was told my backpack was too heavy. 12yrs- Diagnosed anorexia, inout of for 10 years rangeing in 60 lbs. 14yrs- Diagnosed with nearsightedness. Or is it farsighted...Ican't see far away darnit! Began having trouble with my ankles again, hairline fracture to one. 16yrs- checked myself into rehab for 6 months of meth addiction. Began NA. Started seeing floaters in vision, decreasing acuity continues.
Avatar f tn I found out by taking it, that I have a mild case of neurally mediated syncope which the keppra elevated to the point where i had to be hospitalized. It also caused major weakness and fatigue to the point where I couldnt work. And believe it or not, that was the minimum dose. The others havent been that bad, but still horrible. What do you do when you are so sensitive to the drugs that are supposed to help you?

662361 tn?1225338107 chest area. Definitely no weight loss...(the former anorexia in me would be giddy if that were the case!). Instead I maintain a "fluffy" figure (1 yr post-partum and still nursing) that doesn't seem to matter if I skip meals, eat healthy foods, ditch fat & sugars, or chow down on junk food. The weight neither increases nor decreases - which is terribly frustrating. Thank you for the prayers.
218977 tn?1230700972 Responses to interferon (IFN) therapy have varied in these patients. In patients with chronic HCV infection, the hypervariable region 1 (HVR1) of the viral E2 envelope glycoprotein exhibits a range of quasispecies variation that is considered to be the result of host humoral immune pressure that leads to viral adaptation and antibody-escape variants.
5901334 tn?1376465864 I was diagnosed in January with ESLD, have been under treatment taking all my meds, have been hospitalized too many times to count. Just turned 43 in May, I also have many other health issues! tomorrow I have an appointment to see my liver specialist and figured out what's my next step and discussed with him about my decision which is to not have a transplant at all and just lived comfortable until whatever happens happen! I will continue to take all my medicine as usual.
Avatar f tn Most people handle the treatment well, but there are those, and I was one, who had horrible side effects such as, medication induced depression, medication induced anorexia (I lost almost 50 lbs), drops in White Blood Cells requiring medical intervention (I was hospitalized 2 times due to this), I developed Sjogren's, Raynaud's, RA (auto immune disorders), neuropathy, lasting chemo fog (I've been off treatment 3 years and still have some minor problems).
Avatar f tn my 7 year duaghter has Nocturnal Complex Partial seizures and has been on Keppra liquid for 1 year now. they just increased her dose to 8 ml in the am and 10 ml in the pm. she has been extremely grumpy, irritable and very down in the slumps. Has anybody else experienced this? the Dr. thinks that she should talk to a Shrink, but I think it all has to do with the medication as she is normally a very happy, loving and caring she is very pessimistic on EVERYTHING!!!
Avatar f tn They can be used to control panic attacks......for what reason were they prescribed to you? If for panic attacks, and they're not controlling them, call your doctor and let him/her know. Take care.
544292 tn?1268886268 But that's not the most alarming part of Tramadol in my case. In my case the antidepressant that they tacked on to the cocktail is the thing that causes all the rough psychological and mental symptoms. It's a Two Fer One! I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed.
Avatar n tn I thought perhaps she had anorexia the doc's first impulse was diabetes because she lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. At five foot two she had gotten to weigh only about 89 pounds....she complained that she wanted to eat but eating made her stomach hurt. The Zantac was given as a trial and it did help. She regained the weight she lost and 112 pounds. Every time we stop the Zantac she starts losing weight again....

Avatar n tn I'm just wondering if I anyone else has had a similar experience where symptoms were terrible (I was actually hospitalized - couldn't hold down anything, very nauseous, and in pain)and then they just eased up. Until three days ago, I wasn't really feeling anything bad at all. Is it possible that I won't ever have a really bad bout again or am I being unrealistically optimistic?
Avatar n tn I am one of the Community Leaders in the fibro/CFS forum and I see many fibro patients on drugs such as Lyrica and it seems like 99% of them are not getting better. In fact, we recently had a poll in the forum and none of these people were seeing any improvements. I can't tell these people what to do, but I often suggest to them that they should consider listening to the fibro/CFS experts. Many of these experts recommend supplements such as magnesium & D-ribose.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to develop a food allergy in adulthood that you have never experienced before? I'm 32 years old and have recently developed unexplained head pain; a CAT scan showed nothing abnormal. I had a 24-hour respite from the head pain and then it returned. The only thing I could associate with the change was eating chocolate and can recall an increase in my chocolate consumption over the past two weeks. Can an adult develop a food allergy from out of nowhere?
Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
551343 tn?1506834118 I have been diagnosed with MS, but my journey was not a walk in the park and I can surely relate to what others in this group are going through. If I can help in any way, I will be very happy to do so. I also have one more thing to say and that is that my doctor's say there might be another neurological issue or enzyme deficiency issue that is contributing to my symptoms. I am working through that process and perhaps this forum will help me in some way with that issue as well.
Avatar m tn Victoza is a new kid on the block approved by the FDA in January 2010. It is too new to fully understand its good vs bad on humans. In animal studies, Victoza caused tumors of the thyroid gland in rats and mice. Whether it will aid in weight loss is unknown as no weight loss studies were conducted. Your best solution is a lifestyle change; proper nutrition and exercise. No pill can do what you can to do for yourself. Lisonopril - Do you have kidney issues?
Avatar f tn Iam very sick right now and only weigh in the 70's. I am 32 now and developed eating issues at the age of 12. I have been hospitalized in eating disorder treatment centers over 7 times. It's a life and death fight everyday for me. I don't know much about Lymes disease but it sounds awful. My uncle had it and was tested and came back negative. He got sicker and they tested again and it was positive. He didn't have any lasting damage except some joint pain because they caught it early.
Avatar f tn You should try cannabis it may not legal but its the best way. Its used in some countrys to treat anorexia and nausea (suffered by aids and chemotherapy patients). Cannabis is one of the worlds greatest medicines and can be used to treat hundreds of illnesses.
Avatar f tn prescribes it all the times for our patients for weight loss. I am also on it. I boyfriend was in Iraq (now fiance) and I wanted to lose weight before he came home. Well, that did the trick. I am on 200 mg @ night. It helps me sleep at night and I wake up feeling good. That is how he told me to take mine. My mom is also on it and she takes hers at night. She has lost alot of weight too. So, try taking at night. Hope that has helped you out.......
Avatar n tn Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned. I think I/we can guess or prognose just as well or better than they can at times particularly if we know something about health and or ourselves and our own health. Never be afraid to speak up because I feel strongly that digestive tract problems are real and translate into other real nasty symptoms like this.
