Depo provera and numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and numbness


Avatar f tn I have researched so many things but I just came across a site that said the depo provera shot could cause vitamin b-12 deficiency. And vitamin b-12 deficiency would cause all of my symptoms. And also these symptoms started after I got the shot. Anyone have any information on this? I have only had one shot and other than this I have been fine.
Avatar m tn After having an MRI, MRA, Lumbar Puncture, Ultrasound, X-Ray, EEG, EKG, and lots of blood work...all tests were normal. In addition to the numbness, and to make matters worse, she began having body tremors followed by the inability to move or speak, blackouts, and shortness of breath. She always regains movement and the ability to speak within an hour. Initially, doctors insisted that the depo shot had nothing to do with her symptoms, and all symptoms eventually went away completely.
Avatar n tn I would take my med to the ER.It could be a drug interaction, or even signs of an oncoming stroke. Do not wait around. Better safe than sorry.
Avatar n tn Given the history that you have provided, I can not localize your problems any further, but would recommend an MRI of the cervical spine, and a repeat EMG at a major academic center. As far a Depo-Provera shots go, it is likely unrelated. The side effect 'paralysis' is listed in the less than 1% of possible reactions to the medication and has no statistically significant association (there is also no information provided about a possible mechanism).
Avatar f tn I have evident degenerative bone disease in phase two as of last year in my spinal chord and neck. I have permantent numbness in my left leg and both feet have several toes that go numb, as well as a spot between my shoulder blades. My hands and feet are forever feeling frozen with little periods of relief. The acid reflux developed over the years so bad from not being properly and professionally diagnosed it went it should have been.
Avatar n tn I called his office and told the nurse and she just said she would tell him and I have not gotten a call back yet and I have no appointment to go back. Should I seek another neurologist or what? The one I have been seeing says it has him stumped and said he would call me with the results from the MRI on my neck. I ended up having to call them and the nurse said he said to tell me it was normal and that is the last I have heard from them until I called and told her that I was no better.
Avatar n tn thinks either adenomyosis or endo, but she told me if yaz doesnt help the next step might be the depo provera shot I dont know much about it but that may be a possibility for you, or possibly even lupron depo she suggested, even though I think you get many side effects from it. It's like a fake menopause! Well good luck lemme know how things works out!
Avatar n tn Another possible factor I failed to mention is that I discontinued using Depo-provera October 14, and about that time this flare-up began. I don't know if there's a hormonal relationship or not as I'm breastfeeding and my normal cycles haven't yet resumed. At the moment I'm continuing to try to destress my life, avoiding migraine trigger foods, trying to regulate my sleep habits (they are erratic), and I will certainly try vitamin B2 (is that the same as Riboflavin?).
Avatar n tn I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
298579 tn?1192250448 The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach. I have been on the depo shot for four years, I have asked if this is a contributing factor and have been told no. I have no kids. I hope someone comes up with an explanation, because I am too young to be giving up on my sex life!
363243 tn?1331037450 I's not attractive and very depressing. I pluck (which is not good for you and causes hyperpigmentation) and I shave. I've become very skilled at covering the hyperpigmentation up with concealer but I'm so tired of it. The plucking on my neck has caused so much hyperpigmentation that I have to conceal it or people would look at me and ask me, "What's wrong with your neck?" The skin on my chest also has hyperpigmentation and I only shave this area.
Avatar f tn i have been tested for cancer and was told @ 1 time i had cancer cells and then i went back and they didnt find anything. my doctor did find cysts under my arms and one in my breast. What is really wrong do i have HIV, cancer, or is it side effects oF the depo??
Avatar f tn I have a dull pain in my armpit sometimes swelling there are well. Paid and numbness up and down my arm. Sometimes there is pain in my left breast. I have had a bone scan, nerve study, stress test, ekg and a breat exam. For the most part everything tiks normal.
Avatar f tn hello i am an 18 year old female, lately i have experenced some scary and upsetting symptoms.i am healthy, i am 5'5 and 118 pounds. i do not smoke do drugs or drink. but i am on the depo provera shot, but i dont think thats the problem, sence ive been on it for a few years and these symptoms never appeared. i exercise regulary and my job is fast very active. they interact with my daily life and seem to be getting worse.
Avatar f tn I'm very concerned about these symptoms. And to add to this- I got the depo provera shot around feb. 5th and all of these symptoms started happening after so I am not sure if it could a deficiency of some sort but I have also read that deficiency normally affect both sides? Can someone please explain to me what is happening and that I'm not just paranoid?
Avatar n tn fatigue - also had an episode of numbness of mouth and throat. I attributed symptoms to getting older. At approx. 35 years of age began experiencing headaches. I also began having irregular periods (2X per month) and was placed on depo provera injections. Finally went to neurologist at approx age of 38...because of headaches, dizziness, fatigue,etc. After several visits..a CAT scan and MRI, neurologist diagnosed me with MS.
1442701 tn?1286387587 my lesions are in the white matter, not gray. I've developed toe numbness and the buzzing early on. Now I have foot drop. I'm currently in PT for my left sided weakness and spasticity because of this. In 2007/2008 an opthamologist DX me with eye muscle weakness. I developed intermittent double vision and blurred vision. On an eye exam however, I can still see very good and without glasses..things just go out of focus very easily especially late in the day and if I'm fatigued.
Avatar n tn It started about 2 yrs ago before my hysterctomy in which they removed my uterus and left ovary( I had a soft ball size cyst on the left ovary) I went to my GYN for the yearly check up( a year after my surgery)and to have my utlasound to see it I had another growth on my right ovary but he found nothing. He did however say it might be scar tissue and also gave me a depo-provera shot to see if that helped.
Avatar n tn After i had my son i went onto the implant which did not agree with me, got infected and had to b removed after 3 months (meant to stop in for 3 years) i then went onto the depo but a year ago or so i started bleeding very heavy for the last 4 weeks of every injection so the doctor at the clinic also put me on the pill......bad idea! I started cramping and was adviced by my GP to come of both the depo and pill and have not had a period ever since!
Avatar f tn i gained weight, i was irritable all the time, depressed, and just wanted to eat and eat! i prefer Yaz over anything else. but i may start the depo-provera shot birth control. it's something i'm looking into.
Avatar n tn He did however say it might be scar tissue and also gave me a depo-provera shot to see if that helped. I can't say for sure if it helped because I started having terrible neck pain and headaches 4 days after the shot and had to go in the hospital for tests. I was not to active for about 2 months and after I got better and started moving around more again the pain has gottin worse in my abdomen, groin and thigh. The pain is worse when I sit. But better when I walk or lay down.
Avatar n tn I have never had headaches but on the 8th of Dec I had a horrible migraine and they have not stopped since then. I was on Depo Provera and switched to Lo/overal pills could this be a reason for the headaches? I stopped taking the pill last Friday after visiting the ER with horrible pains in my head. All the tests at the ER can back ok but the headaches still come everyday. I was taking up to five meds a day to curb the pain until 2 days ago.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I get numbness in my left hand and arm but it's very mild. I just want to know what's wrong with me!! I am going to schedule a physical and ask that they do COMPLETE bloodwork. I am also overweight but I have been a lot heavier (20 times heavier) in KS with no problems so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I am also stressed and kind of depressed cause my husband is in Iraq. But like I said, in KS I was fine......
544292 tn?1268886268 Sounds too good to be true. (AND IT IS!) The fact is, there's already pain killers here in the house and I'm not going to take any of those either. I'm not taking anything. I'm going to ice it, lay down, rest and realize that my body has been thru a heelllla fight and it just needs a break, a breath. A moment. A freakity frackity day off. I've been in a tough battle for 21 solid cold turkey days and before that; the taper AKA "Let the pills run out....
Avatar f tn I've been tested a billion times due to crazy autoimmune responses to things i.e. ..tetanus booster, depo provera, and an IUD and mold. One reaction was so horrible they thought I had Lupus and Fibromyalgia. It took 2 years to resolve. That is why I am petrified of the Hep C treatment, I will most likely get my butt kicked.
Avatar n tn Ok so the scoop is I was on the depo shot for about 3 years and my periods were very irregular before that and got more so weird as I took the depo shot. I was due for a shot in february but did not go for it so my last shot was in November. The last two days I have had a pinkishy color discharge when I wipe nothing mayjor that i have to use a pad or tampon or anything.
Avatar n tn Hey, well i was in the same situation until last month which was the 1st time i had my period from April, i was perscribed Provera, to bring it on and it did, but i'm trying to have a baby, My gyno has perscribed me clomiphine to stimulate the ovaries, all i know is after taking the provera i had really bad peroid pain and it came back with a vengence, I have a really good gyno and if u are trying to concieve, i've been through a lot of pelvic ultrasounds (internal) cause it's the best way to se
393685 tn?1425816122 Means you stick the numbing needle in that area of the tooth to be taken out, and the numbness actually goes to the top of my head! He wouldn't listen and I kept telling him I could feel the pain still in the tooth...he then told the nurse to hold me down...He put a thingy to hold open my mouth and a leg on my legs and proceeded to pullout the tooth with me screaming as best I could...I had tears pouring down my face. I nearly passed out and THEN he said..."Oh god!
