Avatar m tn Hi, How is your wife? Postpartum preeclampsia, a rare condition that occurs when a woman has high blood pressure and excess protein in her urine soon after childbirth, may develop within 48 hours of childbirth. It is important that she take the medication as prescribed and to go for follow-up with her attending physcian. Take care and do keep us posted.
2030686 tn?1351692148 I should add, at the beginning I had severe upper leg pain/fatigue, but this is also a very common side effect of the treatment and seems to have subsided somewhat.

1429890 tn?1312389607 but, the only time i get those spells is once when i was pg with my 5 month old son, this pregnancy, and a couple of periods i had in the past. 2day i have been dizzy, nauseaed, headaches, and i threw up. i was alone with my son last night until 9 (i was so nerveous about going into a spell i ended up bringing diapers and wipes as well as a bottle to the living room and sitting on the floor with my son and i was alone with my son from 6:30am to about 4 2day).
Avatar m tn Anti-phospholipid syndrome is a coagulation disorder that causes blood clots in both arteries/veins. The syndrome occurs due to the production of antibodies against own cell membrane substance phospholipid. In further stages, if occlusion of small arteries/veins occurs it may convert into catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome. This can affect lower extremities (legs) to cause Deep Vein Thrombosis and symptoms could be pain, swelling/rise of temperature, and redness of the leg.
Avatar n tn I have an indentation on top of my head that I am getting checked out in a couple of weeks.It's been here for years but is getting sensitive and seems to be growing larger.Jen3000:So glad that tumors were ruled out for you.Bet you are relieved.I am also wondering if the indentation could have anything to do with why my heart goes dangerously out of rythym everytime I take practicly all meds.This has been a mystery to doctors.
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist who specializes in anxiety meds and pregnancy had never seen 1 case of a baby with deformities or addiction problems in her entire 20 year career. I hope I can reassure all you moms that it's ok to continue your mediations. It's most likely better to take the meds, then have continuous elevated stress hormones. Everyday, I'm blown away by how intelligent each of my children are. And both of them were exposed to Lexapro, and Klonopin. My son also to Vicodin.
886824 tn?1253740254 This attack damages the myelin, which in turn slows down or blocks messages between your brain and the body causing the symptoms of MS. The causes of MS are largely unknown. MS is most likely a multifactorial condition, which means that it involves a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. It is currently well established that MS also runs in some families.
Avatar f tn Diabetes, Bipolar, generalized anxiety disorder, high bp, high cholesterol and trigs, psoriasis, neuropathy in legs but no numbness in feet or legs, hypothyroidism. I take meds for all of these problems. I have not had sex of any kind in 3 years. Due to severe back problems I do not leave the apartment unless I go to doc appts, dad drives, me. I live with parents since he is retired and available to do so. There is no chance I am pregnant. Please advise. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I had them with my son as well. I'm not sure what causes it, but he's a healthy 19 month old boy now.
Avatar m tn It scares the heck out of me sometimes because it comes on so quick that there is a violent jerk reaction followed by cries of pain and agony. The location of these painfull electric shocks is in the back of the knee about an inch or two below where the knee bends. We've already checked on it being a Bakers Cyst causing the problem so I don't think it's that.
242516 tn?1368227505 This new box warning via FDA is something i've been aware of for some time in patients using ciprofloxaxin, levaquin (levofloxacin), Moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin (floxin), gatifloxacin (tequin), and i'm glad it'll be highlighted on labeling, showing it's increasing incidence: risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture is further increased in those over age 60, in kidney, heart, and lung transplant recipients, and with use of concomitant steroid therapy.
470885 tn?1326332637 My dr and all the L&D nurses told me at the end of my pregnancy to drink a glass of wine in the evening. I don't think there was anything wrong with it. I had a small glass on a few occasions. Do the research if you drink a small glass of wine the baby isn't drinking that same glass of wine. It's a very small percentage that is passed along to the baby. Later in pregnancy it can even help to calm BH contractions. I don't think it's any worse than having a cup of coffee.
Avatar n tn I had a tubal pregnancy in 2002 after having a tubal ligation in 1994. In the beginning I was assured this was a normal pregnancy. (My doctor was on vacation, this is what his replacement was saying, even though he had never seen me and was only going by my HCG levels.) I had spotted the entire time, I never spotted with my other pregnancies. Again I was assured that this is normal for many women. I had two ultra-sounds done, I believe they were around 6 and 7 weeks into my pregnancy.
Avatar n tn I found that taking zertec or telfast (hay fever meds) helped with this, which made me start thinking that it was all some kind of allergy / sinus thing. Most of my symptoms have kind of gone, all I have left now is a bit of pain in the back of my neck, and a stuffy feeling behind my nose and left side of cheek, so I have fingers crossed that it will just go away on its own. Am too scared to ask for a MRI incase I have a brain tumor or something.
Avatar n tn I am always 31 day cycle, never missed a period in my life, not stressed or worried about anything, I had all classis symptoms of pregnancy but strangely when all tests came back negative the symptoms dissapeard which makes me think it was in my head. Being caught up in the holiday season I really did forget about ovualtion and trying to fall pregnant so would ahve been the perfect time to actully conceive without putting much stress on it.
Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
1737603 tn?1310671904 My pregnancy could not have been easier, the 9 months were the happiest of my life. We had no reason to worry; we had 0 known genetic disorders in our family, all the Ultrasounds and Prenatal Screenings were off the charts good, we were convinced everything would be ok. June 26th was the day we got to meet our beautiful baby Amelie. She was perfect, like a little Angel. As I laid eyes on her so overcome with love, I did not notice the red blister-like rash on her skin.
Avatar f tn A Dr by the name of Michael Biamonte is an absolute expert in this condition and has cured it in many people. You can Google him. He does phone consults and can work with you remotely for a complete cure. It isn't easy but he really knows his business and handles yeast for sure of which vaginal eczema is merely a symptom albeit a very frustrating one. Hope this helps.
287246 tn?1318573663 What I mean by that is just keeping in touch. You have made NO efforts in the area of keeping in touch. None! You can’t spend your life always waiting for someone else. Sometimes when you want something, you have to be the one to make it happen. I have 6 children and my job never ends. It may be different if you lived right around the corner. My husband works so much that he is hardly home. I am w/the kids by myself 99% of the time.
Avatar n tn Many of your symptoms are characteristic of PMS and Pregnancy. In addition, they can be symptoms of other issues as well. Talking to your doctor is best advise since they I would assume know your history. This comes from a girl with child, and have had my period every other week lasting 10-15 days at a time since Jan 08. Periods and foreign objects operate different with each body. And stressing out....WON'T HELP!!! :) Relax, eat a good diet, mental health....
Avatar n tn But there are times, like today, where I just want to sit and cry because of all of the pain. One new addition is this strange vibration in my left leg, where I had the horrible fracture. I kept thinking that my cell phone was near my leg, but it wasn't. This weird sensation is actually going on right now. I just attribute everything to the severity of my injuries and nerve damage. But, should anyone find anything else new about this, please post.
Avatar f tn If you re taking Clomid (clomiphene citrate, Serophene) as an ovulation inductor, it may help to know that it can cause hostile mucus in 30 percent or more of women using it. Higher doses of Clomid tend to be more associated with less cervical fluid and a thinner uterine lining, than the 50 mg dose and Robitussin can help to reverse this. EVENING PRIMROSE OIL is used in TTC to increase cervical mucus. It also lowers cholesterol, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Avatar n tn I'm looking for the name of the drug that was prescribed for anti-nausea in pregnancy in the 70's and 80's that was subsequently banned because of problems it would cause female children. Also any information about the effects to the child (22)attempting pregnancy.
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realiizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
Avatar n tn I am a 41 year old female with a 2 year old, in good health other than being about 10 pounds overweight. Two months ago I began experiencing shortness of breath. I yawn constantly in an attempt to get air. The doctor thought asthma, especially given my family history of lung problems, so though my lungs sounded clear I tried advair/albuterol. No change in condition. I had a ct scan to check for a pulmonary embolism and everything looked good.
Avatar n tn Here's a site I found where they list & describe 36 types of headache: I used to have a pressure at the top of my head that didn't hurt, but when I bent over, it felt like it was going to explode. I also used to have many episodes of those electrical shock-like "zingers" (mostly in my head, but also in my elbows, hips, and knees).
