Avatar f tn m 29 weeks and I just recently saw a post on Facebook about ICP (intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy) and it seems to mostly fit my symptoms but I also have hepatitis c and I know that can make you itchy when your levels are off (which currently they are and I'm seeing a GI doctor next week). My worry is that it is not my hepatitis and is this ICP. I've heard it means early delivery and can lead to stillbirth if untreated which scares me to no end.
1823499 tn?1370090289 Could my swelling in neck, shoulders and face maybe be caused from ICP? I was reading up on it on internet. Symptoms are the same and my sweling is permanent and gets wirse when i do stuff?????
Avatar f tn A le nights ago I couldn't sleep because I was experiencing horrible itching in my hands and feet. I went to the doctor early the next morning and it turns out I might have some liver disorder called ICP. I was just hoping there might be another mommy who's experienced this and can help me feel less freaked out! Ftm and all I can do is worry for my little man.
1306714 tn?1327257080 I was reading a posting and you were talking about ICP. Might be stupid of me, but I would rather me stupid 1 minute and ask than go on forever and wonder lol. Thanks so much. Hope every one had a good day. Mine wasn't that bad. I even got out today and done some visiting with family and friend's. Also had to go see a lawyer today. Just pray thing's will go our way.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had or currently have icp? Just the past few days I have been nauseous and started getting really itchy hands and feet. I called my dr and she is having me do blood work tomorrow I just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this.
Avatar f tn I have a question relating to shunts and MRIs. I have a VP shunt and require an MRI because I am having trigeminal neuralgia in my face and neck problems which are leading to numbness in my fingers. CT scans show nothing so my neurologist ordered an MRI. Is it safe for someone with a VP shunt to have one? Im just nervous about it flying out of my head an all. Thank you for any input.
Avatar f tn It could be something more serious like ICP though. Have your palms and feet been itching? If so contact your doctor and have them test you for it.
Avatar f tn m 37 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing pretty severe itching for about 2 weeks now. I did some research and obstetric cholestasis came up ( oc, ICP). It sounds pretty scary. Has anyone else been experiencing this or have oc? I go to my doctor on Tuesday, should I wait to do anything about it till then? Suggestions!?!!!
Avatar f tn My itching started around 26/27 weeks and would keep me up at night, didn't give it much thought until I had enough of hours of scratching and not sleeping. I googled and icp came up, he said doctors don't like patients googling but in this case he's glad I did because I could possibly have icp. Since I've been taking the medicine the itching is gone unless I miss some doses.
Avatar f tn Literally six months later and to this day every six months, once in fall and once in spring I get elevated ICP. They say it is not connected to my lupus. I have none of the risk factors for pseudotumor cerebri. These are the worst headaches ever. I literally feel like my head will explode. I start throwing up within 4 hours of the onset. I almost always end up on the ER. My doctors have not come up with a plan because they do not understand it.
Avatar n tn ) My vertigo is returning as well as numbness to my face/tongue, irritabliy, urinary urgency, numbness and neuro pain to my arms and legs but mostly at night. I am terrified. I feel like if I tell anyone I will be back under the knife. I love my job and can't imagine not working. Right now I am a one man show. If I'm not there, the kids don't get the central lines they need. It's not really an option to slow down.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else had these symptoms and was fine, just sensitive skin or dry skin??? Or has anyone had ICP??? Please let me know if others have the same symptoms.
1925822 tn?1333705617 Hi selma what is pots?and icp?i am really frustrated.i talked to them today.finally i can make my scanning and i want to know whats going on! My ha are worse lying yes...i have constant headache now...and i am soooo tired.when i come back from christmas i want them to check everything.frustrated to the max.
Avatar f tn Hi...let me start by asking since they are now doing genetic testing for EDS post op.....did he have a dura patch placed Sometimes when a person is rejecting a patch they over produce CSF fluid and it is then DX'd as having ICP and a shunt is placed.... Sometimes all that is needed is to replace the dura patch with tissue harvested from the patient to help lessen the CSF being produced. I know when I went to school I had issues learning and focusing...
Avatar m tn s are VERY mild this time around! I was really expecting to go to hell and back with this fentanyl withdrawal but so far it has been 10x easier than my oxy withdrawals I went through last year. Anyone have any theories why my w/d this time around has not been nearly as bad as last time? I have been dependent for about 4 months this time around, using mainly oxy/dilaudid/fentanyl but I havent had oxy in awhile mainly just fentanyl and dilaudid.
Avatar f tn After decompression there should be lesser icp wave (systole-diastole icp difference). So for sure, the shunt working environment has been changed.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar f tn Then a couple friends showed up and gave me a few fentanyl pills. The subs blocked most of that but I feel ok. I have to work again in 8 hrs. I have about 6 more pills of fentanyl. I know if I use them I'll get through work but I don't want to start a fentanyl addiction.i was wondering if I take subs instead if I'll just get sick again or if they'll help now. I need to work or I'll lose my car. That's the only reason I'm considering taking the fentanyl tomorrow.
1390687 tn?1281157239 How much of each were you on and for how long? The fentanyl withdrawal will probably be the worst... I had the roughest time with the fentanyl... and no withdrawals from the percocet/oxycodone... it all depends on the person and amount and how long the person has been using,.. good luck.
Avatar f tn Aims of this study were to investigate whether hepatitis C virus infection influences the incidence and natural history of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) and whether ICP has different characteristics in hepatitis C virus (HCV) positive women from ICP in HCV negative women.
Avatar m tn My wife has been perscribed fentanyl patches and has been told not to eat grapefruit, does this apply to all citrus fruit ie.
1588890 tn?1297073916 s a month ago, Percocet 10 for breakthru and Lyrica for my Fibro. I am trying to quit smoking and HATE that gum! Was thinking about the patch but was wondering if it was safe to have both on? Any suggestion?
7157762 tn?1390862911 ve stopped taking my percs and taken off my last dose of Fentanyl patches. Wanted to thank all the folks here especially Ms. H who has supported me throughout this bumpy ride. My cold turkey wasn't completely planned. A friend of mine and I planned to jump together but things always seem to come up for us both. Less than a month ago, I went to my pain management doc for yet another refill. I opened up to my doc and issued my wish to be off the patches.
