Avatar m tn Clonidine tends to lower blood pressure, but that is not the mechanism for its effect on opioid withdrawal. Opioid withdrawal causes a state of central nervous system excitation, and clonidine has actions in the central nervous system that reduce that excitation. Amlodipine, on the other hand, is a calcium channel blocker (clonidine is an alpha-2 agonist-- affecting receptors for epinephrine) and the two meds have completely different actions.
Avatar f tn A recent blood test showed I have high levels of calcium in my blood, what problem would that might indicate?
Avatar n tn Hi, “A demyelinating disease is any disease of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged. This impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves, causing impairment in sensation, movement, cognition, or other functions depending on which nerves are involved”.
Avatar n tn Its odd because I used to eat a lot of dairy products, but since I became lactose intolorant and stopped eating milk products my blood calcium shot up. I have been told by doctors that high blood calcium can have CNS effects although I have not experienced them. My main concern is that since it causes CNS effects that it may damage the CNS over long periods of time since I am still in my 20's.
Avatar m tn Hello Dear, Brain Calcium deposits are small mineral spots that precipitate out of the blood stream and central nervous system fluid. They can occur any where within the brain..It depends on the location and number. In some cases, such deposits can be associated with specific medical disorders that may need to be treatedor may remain latent without causing any symptoms. The use of tegretol may help you but the success rate is not yet fully documented.
200220 tn?1361951554 Separate them by at least an hour and you should be good to go. The calcium binds the synthetic thyroid and your system can't absorb as much. What I do is take all my meds and vitamins at night and my Synthroid first thing in the morning. This gives the vitamins and minerals more time to absorb (according to a nutritionist I talked to) without eliminating them as rapidly from your system and spaces them far enough away from your levothyroxin dose.
Avatar f tn Calcium levels and hypocalcemia Calcium is an essential mineral which provides our body with the ‘electrical’ energy it needs for the smooth running of our nervous system and muscle contractions, including our heart. It also provides the strength and maintenance needed for healthy bones and teeth and is involved in the clotting process of our blood and our feeling of well being.
Avatar m tn You must consult a physician who would do a detailed examination and relevant blood tests like complete blood count, electrolytes sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium, blood glucose and serum creatinine. Metabolic panel including thyroid function test would complete the blood testing. You may require detailed and extensive nervous system testing if nerve or muscle disorder is suspected. Management would be accordingly. Wishing you all the best.
Avatar f tn Calcium and magnesium are important to prevent nervous tension. They relax a tense and overwrought nervous system." "Adrenaline not only activates the SNS, but is also a focusing hormone, forcing us to focus on any possible "danger" at the expense of anything else. It causes us to "ruminate". Thus excess adrenaline production also lies at the root of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Avatar f tn I have preclamsia , it is serious but if you take care of yourself its really noting to worry about. Keep your blood pressure down and stress to a min. You will be okay !
Avatar n tn I have persistent high blood calcium. My PTH is normal, but higher than what it should be with high blood calcium. I have had CT scans and all looks great. It wasn't until my parathyroid scan (sestamibi scan) that "something" was found. They believe that I have a parathyroid tumor the size of a grain of rice, but they need to do a RAI uptake scan and superimpose the images to figure out precisely.
Avatar n tn OK, just received results of blood test & says high calcium (10.8). Well.......All winter I've been very well, no colds, no brochitis even when the rest of the family was ill. I believe Vit D3 helped keep me well. Been taking about 5000 iu per day. Think that could be causing trouble with the calcium?
Avatar n tn My fiancee has surgery on his back for kyphosis, they put rods and screws in to straighten his spine. Then he had a nerve cauterization done on his lower back about six months after surgery and just two days after he went into the hospital because he was having stomach pains.
Avatar n tn It is a very unheard of nervous system disorder that prevents the body from being able to properly adjust to the pull of gravity. Therefore, symptoms arise, such as: rapid heart rate upon standing, low or high blood pressure, dizziness, fainting, fatigue, sweating, headaches, shortness of breath, inability to exercise, digestion problems, etc. The symptoms are endless and vary person to person day to day. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
572651 tn?1530999357 those of you who have followed my medical history know that I had a heart attack (MI) last January, which was caused by a coronary vasospasm. I continue to suspect that there is a link between what I experience and my MS. Checking on the womenheart site tonight I found a post pointing me toward this site - one sentence jumped out at me .... "Other suggested causes include problems in part of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord)".
Avatar n tn These calm the nervous system and relax muscles, so you may be deficient. Magnesium and calcium are found largely in grains & dairy, which most Celiacs have had to eliminate, so a deficiency is quite likely (in addition to malabsorption issues which Celiacs have).
