Avatar m tn * I must look down to see whether I'm wearing socks. (Putting them on requires sitting on a bed.) * Putting on shorts is difficult. Sometimes both feet go into the same leg! * I must be very careful where and how I walk for fear of falling. * There is brown discoloration in my feet and lower calves. My Doctor refers to this as stasis dermatitis (http://www.emedicine.com/derm/topic403.htm) with hemosiderin deposits with brownish pigment containing iron.

Avatar f tn I believe gabapentin caused my feet to slightly swell to where I use diabetic socks to keep from cutting off circulation and getting cold feet. My vision changes anytime the dosage of gabapentin is changed, so I have had to update glasses almost every dosage change. Noticed certain fluorescent lights take time to adjust to, but can't say if it is connected to gaba.
Avatar n tn I also am diabetic (type 2), and systemic lupus. My nuerologist blames mostly diabetes (although I am fairly o.k. at 6.1) I have many other health problems due to lupus. He started me on neurontin (300 mg. 3x daily). I also will be seeing a dieticionist and will be taking classes (How to deal with chronic illness- through Kaiser Permanente. Anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Cant wear even diabetic socks, my swelling will go up to my waist! I know i should not wait, but i want my baby to remember me. This all started with a divorce believe it or not, but it has to do with politics. I know this sounds far-fetched, but if i was healthier, i would be on an air plane out of this state, but cant sit down, with out swelling . I got to go, hav an appointment. OBTW, i am not close to be crazy.
Avatar n tn I'm no longer pre-diabetic and my fasting blood sugar is where it's supposed to be. I still have problems with other allergies, which is why I joined this forum, and other health concerns, but this big problem has finally been whittled down to size and is much more manageable.
Avatar m tn Hope you're doing better. I've had severe back & leg problems for about 18 years now. 6 years ago I went in for a lamenectomy to relieve severe spinal stenosis in the L3, L4, L5, & S1 area of my lower back. As it turned out the stuff that forms in the spinal column that wraps itself around the spinal chord & strangles it causing the stenosis didn't wrap itself around my spinal chord but went through it instead!
147426 tn?1317269232 The fatigue with vertigo is worse!! Two and a half years ago one morning I was putting on my shoes and socks and realized I couldn't lift my R leg onto the other to put on my socks. I could barely lift it off the ground. I saw my internist who noted pathologically hyperactive reflexes on both knees and ankles, weakness of the R hip flexors and referred me to the neurologist I had seen before for migraines.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem, sudden bolt of extreme, stabbing pain in my inner right thigh, just about 3 inches above the knee. Lasts a few seconds and then is suddenly gone with no aftereffects. So far, I've had about 6 episodes over the past year. I tend to sit for long periods in front of my desktop computer and also do yoga and leg stretches every few days. Sometimes the pain ~seems ~ to hit a day or 2 after stretching exercises - though I'm not certain of that.
Avatar f tn This has been so helpful. I have been going crazy. I haven't had money to go to doctor. Will have medicare in Feb and plan to get this taken care of. I have not had a good night's sleep in a long time and it is really getting to me. I will have to force myself to drink water. I didn't realize that this was such a common thing. When I lay down and start to doze my heart will all of a sudden beat hard and I go into a full panic attack. I have been having a lot of anxiety issues before this.
Avatar n tn physical therapy today, he can walk, he was able to put on the socks the therapist gave him, put on some scrubs and tie them in a regular bow tie, he has been sipping water through a straw and ate some vanilla cookies today. We know his right eye was affected, how much we're not sure. How long were your love ones in the hospital? Last night or this morning he pulled out his I-V and catheter got out of bed and the nurses from him setting in the chair in his room.
Avatar n tn I was in the medical field for 20 years until my seizures caused me to become disabled in 2001 and therefore, I had to go on Medicare and due to my pre-exsisting condition, I could not get no secondary insurance and did not qualify for part D Medicare (prescription coverage) so I had to go on the Patient Prescription Assistance Program in order to get my Depakote medication.
