1318483 tn?1318350782 like labor contractions without having a break between the waves. The pain in my head was pressure-like and seemed to be stronger in my right side and it included my jaw and ear on the right side. I have NEVER felt this before and the strength of the pain was off the charts. It made me cry and taking breaths was hard to accomplish due to the pain. Due to not being able to take decent breaths, I could not call out to my mom.
Avatar m tn He looked at recent bloodwork and said that sooner or later I'll be on statins and/or blood pressure meds and let's check back again in 3-4 months. I know there won't be any difference in the blood results because I know my history but went along because wasn't in the mood to start any new meds anyway. His three big questions were: (1) any pains when exercising; (2) Any shortness of breath while exercisisng; (3) Any irregular beats. Answers all 'no'.
Avatar f tn You will also need blood tests to monitor your kidney and liver function, blood sugar, blood clotting, blood cells, levels of salts (electrolytes, eg potassium), and amount of the medicine in your blood. Measuring the level of medicine in your blood helps your doctor to prescribe you the correct dose. If you get diarrhoea during treatment, this can affect the amount of medicine in your blood and extra monitoring of your tacrolimus blood level is recommended.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar m tn lisinopril's effect on potassium level may be further increased when patients are also taking NSAIDs, which are diclofenac and aspirin in your case, and when dehydrated. 3. The combination of aspirin, diclofenac, and paroxetine can thin your blood and increase your risk for gastrointestinal bleed. Please note any unusual bleeding, especially blood in the stool. 4. If you have high blood pressure, it is best to avoid NSAIDs, such as diclofenac, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.
Avatar m tn mainly to concentrate on the prostate exam and the PSA. and also a metabolic blood test? and a globulin blood test for a white blood cell count. i told her maybe their count might be up trying to fight off something when i get that "Fluish" feeling? she said possibly. she also said we'll check the thyroid. it's been off "slightly" before but i quit taking those meds because my insurance ran out. i have a slight elevation in my blood sugar, she threw around a diabetic test.
Avatar m tn They may also increase blood pressure and cause kidney damage if taken at high doses. I understand you had surgery to treat the pain. However, surgical procedures may or may not cure the condition. I do not know what surgery and what medical condition you have. Pain medications are usually taken for short period of time. For chronic pain management, you will need rehabilitation and physical therapy, with or without pain medications.
1204528 tn?1279825886 Try searching for 'carbamazepine metabolism' and 'diclofenac metabolism'. It shows that both meds are metabolized by CYP3A4. Diclofenac may decrease levels of CYPA4 (search 'diclofenac inactivation CYP3A4); this could potentially lead to increased levels of carbamazepine. I could not find any direct information regarding this interaction, so it seems that it is not something that happens very frequently.
Avatar n tn Immediate medical help should be sought if a patient on long term diclofenac develops chest pain, breathlessness, weakness of one side of body and blurred vision. There can be other causes of stroke as well like high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia, and obesity.
Avatar n tn i have been diognosed with an inflamation near spine lower back (pinched nerve) and I also have high blood pressure is there an anti-inflamatory i can take that wont increase my blood pressure?
Avatar n tn with the same thing, he told me to take Aleve 3 times a day....I also have a bad cough and was diagnosed today with high blood pressure and asthma....what in the heck is going on.......I am quite frightened......he did an EKG just to rule out a heart attack and some blood work, said it was routine testing but I wonder?!?!?!
298579 tn?1192250448 Yesterday, during arousal, I started cramping so bad that I had to go sit on the toilet to try to relieve the pressure. That was it and I called my ob/gyn and they invited me to come in today. In a last ditch effort before I left work, I did another google search and low and behold, here you all are!!! I marched into my doctor’s office armed with you ladies as reinforcements that I’m not crazy.
Avatar n tn However, most of them do present sparingly and occur only a few times in a year for some persons. Do you have hypertension (high blood pressure)? Is the pain throbbing, constricting or sharp? Do you experience pain radiating to your arms? Any recent stressful situations? Your headaches are generally non-specific from your description and could be related to tension headache, hypertension, or nerve impingement at the cervical area, though there is no absolute certainty at this time.
511149 tn?1211098751 Only obs worth noting were very slightly raised temp, and high blood pressure (which I have never, ever experienced before). Taking Diclofenac + Paracetamol for the pain. Any ideas as to the cause anyone? Your input is much appreciated.
Avatar f tn Last winter was the worst! It felt as if my legs were having 'seizures' with rapid firing here and there and here again.....very painful! My question now is, "Does anyone believe that the 'choking/strangulation' feeling I have been having for 2.5 years has anything to do with the FM? I'm always pulling at my shirt around my neck, but that isn't the problem. The choking feeling can get so bad that I have coughing fits.
Avatar m tn He is a 63 year old with Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. For the past 5 days he has a stiff neck and severe pain in the middle of his back radiating up to his shoulders and down to his lower back. He also shivers uncontrollably, to the point that he is unable to sleep or walk or function normally. 3 days after he first started to experience the pain, we took him to the ER.
Avatar n tn The first time he was concerned that the chest pain could indicate a heart condition and sent me for a series of blood tests for the major organs and an ECG at rest. The outcome was that he considered that there was no indication of a heart condition. The second time a week or two later he suggested that as a I take an antiinflammatory 75mg Diclofenac for a back condition it may be some sort of "reflux" from my stomache. and prescribed Omeprazole capsules 20mg.
Avatar f tn I have recently been diagnosed with High Blood Pressure, and Type 2 Diabetes, my Doctor was aware of all the medications I was on. I was taking Prednisolone 5mg for 1 year, Diclofenac 50mg twice daily for five years, and Perindopril 8mg once daily for a month. About two weeks ago, after feeling sick from the cocktail of medications I was taking. I made a rash decision to ditch all of them except the High blood pressure medication; my blood pressure was 150/109.
Avatar n tn The vessel size enlarges, pushes on brain cells and the headache is back. This is why most people on high blood pressure medications will get headaches as a side effect. Treating your headache must lie in finding out the root cause for the headache. A neurologist can help you here.
Avatar f tn I suffer with severe joint & muscle pain. I have muscle wastage in my calf muscles, more on the lhs. I suffer with tremors, stomach pain and ibs. It also feels like something is stuck in my throat! I have high blood pressure & reflux. I can barely walk, I am a 46 yr old female & feel like my life is at an end! I have been passed from a mats team to physio to orthopaedics to rheumatology! I suffer with sleep problems....
Avatar n tn I didn't start having heartburn until I had taken Mobic for 4 or 5 months, in February of this year I went to the emergency room with chest pain and my blood pressure was 165/113, my blood pressure is usually 110/72. So I was a little concerned, they did lots of tests, x-ray, EKG, and came to the conclusion that it is was heartburn due to the mobic. The doctor prescribed nexium, which I have been taking ever since, and it seems to help with the chest pain.
Avatar m tn i'm hardly eating, and im vomiting a great deal. i went to the ER three times already and they did blood test, which showed low possium levels, a urine test, normal, a ct normal, and a ultra sound and xray all normal. they gave me pain meds but they don't work. i'm thinking of going back in because it's all getting worse. i can't get in to my doctor until the 8th of jan 09. i am really suffering here, and all i want is for this damn hospital to treat me like i'm not going crazy.
Avatar m tn Sinusitis (you appear to have this), refractive errors of the eye, migraine, cluster headaches, brain tumors, high blood pressure, tension headaches, temporal arteritis, pinched cervical spinal nerve, poor or disturbed sleep etc are several causes of headaches. Dental pain and ear ache can cause similar symptoms. Needless to say, a persisting headache should be investigated. Please consult a headache and migraine specialist to rule out these causes one by one. Take care!
233488 tn?1310696703 Running marathons for decades is an excessive amount of exercise, predisposing to an increased coronary artery plaque buildup despite favorably altering many risk factors such as weight, blood pressure and risk of diabetes. A more moderate dose of exercise is a better strategy for promoting long-term cardiovascular health and durability. An example of a sensible and time efficient ‘exercise prescription’ is shown in figure 1.
5806584 tn?1380414143 However, do consult your provider and pharmacist if you need to take it for a prolong period of time.

Avatar m tn My blood reports are normal except RA factor which is positive and very high. My blood pressure is also normal 100/70. Pulse 65-70. Now here is the problem: Since last several months I get vibrations or shocks as if coming from my bed or sofa when I am resting or watching TV. This does not happen when I am busy during the day. These vibrations cause palpitations and are at times severe at bedtime and does not allow me to sleep.

Avatar m tn I was young and stupid and didn't bother going back to gp. i do not have high blood pressure normally around the 130-140 mark and between 77-85. They say my heart is enflamed and i am on anti inflammotories for that. my heart rythem has always been up for debate. some doctors say they cannott hear a murmur, others say they can. But a few years ago i had very bad palpatations.. but nothing really since. I am trying to keep positive. Thankyou for your kind words.
