Common Questions and Answers about Does antibiotics cause water gain


1257808 tn?1322765815 All sorts of hormones affect your mood and your weight gain. Thyroid does have a huge affect on your metabolism rate and thus your weight. Too high and you can loose weight, too low and you'll gain weight. Thyroid is also associated with mood including depression and anxiety. Some people can get off of or have no need to take anti-depressants or anti anxiety medicine simply by getting their Thyroid levels balanced correctly. However there are other hormones in your body as well.
Avatar n tn Many Lymie's become hypothyroid that can cause weight gain. Once on medication my 30lbs gain came off. It's good to check.
Avatar n tn I suffer from an over active thyroid but you can also have an under active thyroid. It would cause all of your symptoms, do you gain weight easily? Or is it hard for you to gain weight? If it is your thyroid, once fixed, you will hardley ever get sick again!
Avatar n tn Because as my stomach gets more distended, I'll gain around two pounds and the abdomen is hard, not sloshy from water. And my doc said it wasn’t water. Finally, if the stomach, why would I have symptoms, yet show nothing on the endoscopy? Can something like a a weak musocal linings cause the symptoms, yet not show anything on the endoscopy? Burning questions that when answered, will hopefully resolve my problem. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn 1 1/2 year ago I had several tests done including thyroid, flexible sygmoidoscopy, berium enema, upper GI, cat scan, and ultra sound. NOTHING! Not only does this control my life at times (5 out of 7 days) but I follow a strict exercise program and most people would not even think I do a situp. I seem to hold onto 20 some extra pounds in the last few years.
Avatar f tn (of course everyone's different). Water weight gain (drink massive amounts of water to help that), acne, brittle hair, diarrhea, thirst, frequent urination, sometimes a little nausea (it's wasn't that bad) and that was it for me. I'm really sensitive to medications too and it was a smooth transition. I responded to lithium in about a week ( I was in the hospital). I really hope this works for you. Drinking lots of water, really helps the kidneys.
906129 tn?1242402230 Does everyone gain weight on thyroid meds?! I do not want to gain anything! I've been releatively the same size and just started Levothyroxine less than a week ago. This terrifies me.
Avatar n tn Seems like some people gain and some loose. People have commented that those who want to loose gain, and those who want to gain loose. My guess is that if you have a predisposition one way or the other, TX is probably going to magnify it. Also, as long as I'm raining on parades, be on the watch for an upward spike when you go off the drugs.... happens alot. Be well.
Avatar f tn I don't know about anyone else, but I have had such a difficult time trying to find the right birth control pill. I need one that doesn't make me tired,cause weight gain, or acne. It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite.
Avatar n tn What a whammy! A miscarriage, and then you GAIN weight? Doesn't it seen like it should go the other way? Well I am very reassured to read these postings. My miscarriage happened January 11, and since then I've picked up a good 7 lbs (only gained 2 in pregnancy). I've always had a "healthy appetite" but have been able to get away with it by running 12+ miles a week. If I gained a pound, I ran a little extra and off it came. Not the case any more!

Avatar n tn And how about the fact that there is constantly mucous being produced and spit up in response to water? And as was pointed out by quickcoughing697, Mucinex DOES seem to be the only thing to ever even temporarily or somewhat help at times, but it is definitely not something meant for lifetime use. If anybody has figured anything out or gotten any help since posting, PLEASE let me know ASAP! I want my life back!
Avatar n tn A more uncommon side effect is to lower your sodium, which can cause water retention and rapid weight gain. If this is happening (and you should get your doctor to check), you'll need to up your salt intake to balance things. Remember that you can only pack on so many pounds in a week of fat and muscle, and gaining a lot in a short period is often water, which is quite heavy. And you often have to try a drug for a couple of months to really see how it will work for you.
922048 tn?1387946184 I think that this candida might be the cause of most of my health issues, including my recurrent pregnancy loss! Candida is a fungus. Ewww! Yuck! And what they try to do to survive and thrive is to slow down your metabolism. They need your body temperature low (and they need sugar and high glycemic foods!) So, many times having a sluggish thyroid or even just feeling hypothyroid symptoms with normal thyroid function can actually be due to candida!
537731 tn?1268268886 I also have a serious thryroid issue i believe and is not being addressed from childhood. 114 lbs cant gain weight 5'9 I need help- i cant find a good lyme Dr in my area. I have googled and yahooed.I suffered since a kid with this and just getting diagnosed. I am now 32. I think irreparable damage is and has been done to my muscles and bones and the Dr's dont even know it. My Dr is old fashioned and has Lyme so I am so grateful he gave me a name to this horrible way of life.
Avatar f tn I don't believe that food sensitivities are the cause of your problem. Make sure you drink alot of water throughout the day and even at night. You may also want to get a treatment with the Ondamed. This is a biofeedback device invented in Germany and now all over the U.S. It will show if there are energy blockages in your organs that may be causing the problem. Go to for a list of practitioners. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Yes. Mirena does cause odor. The smell is actually pretty bad and very noticeable. Smells like trash. I take a shower twice a day and the odor just keeps coming back. After sex the smell is strong, pretty embarrassing. At one point I thought it was my ex man or a infection but no. I been single now and haven't had sex for few months and the same smell is still there. Then I tried different soaps but nothing made a difference. It even smells beyond your clothes!
Avatar n tn Unfortunately all the antidepressants cause weight gain and does it so suck! I have only been taking Effexor XR for about 3 months and I have gained about 7-8 lbs. I am having unbelievable cravings for carbs. mostly sugary sweets. I have been on Paxil in the past and I also found myself gaining weight on it, too. I believe both meds did help in my mild depression but it was too much of a risk to keep taking them and gaining, gaining and gaining.
1353650 tn?1429466974 (lost 20) 5 '4'' I have had a long journey battling illness and I can say that candida has always been the cause. I was given many rounds of antibiotics for chronic bladder infections as a 5 year old. With in five years of this I became fatigued, and obese by the age of 10. From this point on my health was always a problem for my parents.
148354 tn?1211237506 Alot of dr's debate if chronic exist,I believe it does,but having laparscopy in Aug to check for endometriosis,nothing showed up.Dr said he had good look and appendix said it looked fine.Since then symptoms and pain are worse,no infection from surgery. I've talked to few ppl who had chronic,dr said appendix look fine,only to find few days,weeks,months later was getting ready to rupture.Scary eh ?
Avatar n tn You'll have to do alot of reading to educate yourself about this disease. Many people find a Lyme literate M.D. who does all the testing and prescribes antibiotics. I persuaded my family doc to order the test for me, and when I was positive, told him that I would find another doc to treat me. I found the discussion group at, and after several months of reading, decided to self treat. Don't expect too much from your family doctor.
Avatar n tn Fish oil supplements (I prefer flax oil) 2. Magnesium 3. CoEnzyme 10 4. Nattokinase 5. Walking 6. Water 7. Then some misc. lifestyle changes. But you've got to read this book, it's really very good, again aside from the sloppy editing. It's like my "Heart Bible." I feel comforted when it's with me. I hope to do much of what he recommends.
Avatar n tn chronic daily diarrhea (12 X a day), excessive wt gain, chronic nausea, vomiting, chronic severe abd pain worsened by sitting and bending, intermittent bloody bm (negative hemorrhoids). GI symptoms are excerbated by eating, extremely limited diet. Not lactose intolerant or allergic to milk. Ingestion of dairy products causes severe vomiting and diarrhea; over 24 hours. Must stop eating for 24 hours prior to MD appointments to avoid diarrhea. 7+ years.
Avatar f tn If so, what caused it? Have you ever known m.s. to cause a HCBS? YOu been a good resorce here, it is kind of you. And if you have any inpuuut i appeciate it. (also i peged you for other than u.s.
Avatar n tn thank you internet! i am 19 and i have been masturbating at least once a day every day for the last 2 years or so. i, like most of you, have found that the more i masturbate (especially with porn) the harder it is to get and maintain an erection with real life girls. the first time i tried having sex the condom pretty much shut things down down there and the sex didnt last long either due to *ehem* "low tire pressure".
Avatar f tn the antibiotics were given every 24 hours and I got my last does this morning. I'm really hoping they were off tomorrow and the withdrawal will calm down so I can eat something. The anxiety isn't helping either. If I don't eat, I've already lost 20 pounds in the last 6 weeks because of all of this. I need to eat, but my stomach just won't allow it. Again so sorry for rambling. But thank you for reading and answering.
Avatar n tn 8 ) and the same results also were obtained recently prior to treatment. Yes, I do have the symptoms . Weight gain, high chlesterol ( 235 , usually between 185 - 200 ) , and high blood pressure that is difficult to control with medication , less energy and slower memory. My PCP not sure if I have subclinical hypo which should be treated so I was refered to an endocrinologist . The endo believes I have hypo so started me with 50 micrograms of Synthroid .
Avatar f tn I have had pulmonary function tests that indicate asthma, CT Scans essentially are normal except for a 4cm lesion that has not changed. Does anyone know of adults who were infected with whooping cough that resulted in chronic/ hard to control asthma or other related respiratory problems and sudden onset of significant allergies?
Avatar n tn Your vet appears to be of an old-fashioned school regarding kidney failure. It's not so much the protein that is the problem. Protein does not cause kidney failure, and many studies show that protein doesn't really make things worse. You do want to use more digestible forms of protein like scrambled eggs (use about 1/2 of the yolk), yogurt, or dark poultry meat. These proteins are higher in fats, but at this point the most important thing is to get your dog to eat something. Anything!
