Avatar f tn So, is this something new that is happening? Have you noticed it before or has something changed that this feeling is there. There is something called 'hard flaccid syndrome'. https://www.urologynews.uk.com/features/synopsis/post/hard-flaccid-syndrome It's a little off but does have some symptoms you describe. Do you have pain upon ejaculation?
Avatar f tn neuropaletic malignant syndrome.....symptoms are. Excess sweating,Bp changes,heart beat changes, rigid muscles confusion,fever,breathing changes......says if have any of these to call needs treatment in hospital......is this thing I'm going thru nms? And the doctors are only assuming it's from prednisone,and overlooking the latuda?
Avatar n tn 5 of fentanyl patches and I am so confused. I quit cold at 100 and I know what you mean about jerking all over and the screaming part because I was so desperate I ended up in hospital because I took too many lorazapams and baclofen to try and stop it. I am clausterphopic and they 5 point strapped me down. I was terrified but when I got home 5 days later I am taking 2 valium a day and clonadine but nothing is helping the extreme pain in my lower stomach and back.
Avatar m tn I have been using fentanyl subliminal (?) Tablet 400mcg for approximately 1 year when I was switched to the Subsys fentanyl 1600 mcg spray. I was on this spray for 1 year. I was abruptly taken off of this medicine (cold turkey). My only saving grace was some 200 mg Nucynta tablets that I had used for break through pain ( Friday through Tuesday) I used these tablets until the doctor could see me last Tuesday @ 2:45PM. I have been given 60 MG morphine sulfate and 8 MG hydromorphone.
Avatar f tn I have had fibro for 5 years - at first a few Darvocet took care of the pain - I am now up to a Fentanyl patch 75mcg plus 2 Hydrocodone per day, and 3 Klonopins per day. Then about a year ago, I started shaking off and on, but about 6 months ago, the shaking and muscle contractions are constant. The doctor suggested to start taking Savella, but I have not read about anyone taking Savella for this and that it helped the shakes and muscle twisting.
Avatar m tn Just wanted to ask if anyone had any experience with switching methadone 95mg once daily, to fentanyl patch 100mcg Hour patch? or know the methadone mg fentanyl dose equivalents?
Avatar f tn ve lost some weight it seems patches will only work when I put them on sides of my chest even when I put them I front of chest it doesn't work and also why can't you overlap where you put last patch like take one off and put new one in same place cause when I do it works very well for pain,and I definitely start feeling withdrawal from fentanyal when I put them anywhere but my sides I'm assuming my core temperature is hotter there than arms or shoulders and I also feel alot better if
14468396 tn?1434674089 10 years ago I had the Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass surgery, which gave me malabsorption syndrome. That means that food, vitamins, minerals, meds, ect...do NOT digest in my "pouch", they digest in the lower intestine or go through my liver. So all meds had to be adjusted. I have had the same doctor for 3 years, she put me on Fentanyl 25 every 72 hours and 4 norco 5/325 for break through pain.
Avatar n tn The pain feels like someone is digging into my stomach with a shovel just under my ribcage, or like my chest is being crushed, or feels like I’m being stabbed with a spear from my chest to out of my back, and so on. It’s only on my right side. I don’t have diarrhea, constipation, or bloating, but I do feel nauseated often. I live with terrible, gnawing pain every day of my life.
Avatar n tn I have been put on a fentanyl patch 25 mcg recently. I have a bizarre circumstance that my body adjusts and clears out medications in an expedited way. For example, over the last three weeks, I have gone thru Vicodin, then Norco, then OxyContin, now Fentanyl. I will be having surgery on 3/31, then hopefully my painful condition will start to improve. With all the posts on Fentanyl withdrawl, I am terrified of going thru that.
1727909 tn?1314845210 I (while in between Anesthesiologists) have been treated for failed back surgery pain syndrome, spinal stenosis, (among other painful side effects of my body disjointing) for 22 years. An Anesthesiologist is quite effective at treating pain at the spinal cord level(something necessary to properly treat failed back surgery pain syndrome) Technically, an anesthesiologist is the only properly trained medical professional, for treating our type of pain.
Avatar f tn The ER doctor said I probably have arthritis in my chest wall. To rule everything out, and because the chest pain was so severe, my PCP had me see a cardiologist to get more testing done. Every single test came back normal. 4 months later, it was like in an instant again, the pain spread into my entire body in the joints. My knees, ankles, hips, shoulders, jaw, elbows, wrists, and knuckles constantly hurt. 24/7.
Avatar f tn Within 24 hous you should begin to feel tje fentanyl working, and after a day or two after you apply the 2nd patch, the level of fentanyl in your system will stablize. You can do a couple of things to make sure the patch is working. First, make sure that patch is properly applied and second, acquire the covers for the patch. Information about proper application of tjeeethe patch and the covers is is on the patient information you should have received with the medication.
Avatar f tn Hi Woodsey. I can relate, having been diagnosed with Reiters in December, and have never gotten over it. The pain is massive and I've been seeing a pain management specialist.
Avatar f tn s safe), on his glans, for 3-4 seconds,and then I masturbated, and immediately, I washed my previous with water for nearly 5-10 minutes, and now 1 month before I had a rash on my right upper arm(red and not itching), then there days later I had similar rash on my left chest, which was there for nearly a weak, then after 15- 20 days I had a similar rash on my right chest, with a swollen lymph node under the chin(due to sinus infection I always have my lymph nodes swollen), but this was rigid an
Avatar f tn I am on 12mcg of the fentanyl. I cannot take more than that otherwise I get severe chest pains. The pain clinic dr won't give me anything else says he can't help me if I don't stick with the hydrocodone 10/325 and the fentanyl patch. I have severe neuropathy in my feet and I can't take Lyrica, neurotin or the generic. If I try to go to a different pain clinin then they will think I am just looking for drugs and I'm not I'm looking for some kind of pain relief.
Avatar f tn This can become an even bigger problem since the chest is surrounded by a very rigid bone structure (the chest cavity). The top of the chest cavity is made up of the spinal column in the back, the first and second ribs on the sides, and the collar bones (clavicles) and breast bone (sternum) in the front. When a thyroid gets enlarged within this rigid bony structure, it will compress those structures which are soft such as the trachea, lungs, and blood vessels (the bones will not give way).
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Ehlers Dan Los Syndrome  a bit over 2 years ago. It causes reacuring dislocations. Mostly in my right hip and knee. And constant strains of ligaments and tendons. Both of which obviously cause extreme pain. and makes it so i now am in a wheelchair. Right now I'm on oxycodone 5mg tablets. They don't work what so ever for my pain. I've been doing research and many of the people with my disorder are on the fentanyl patch.
Avatar n tn Good job on the taper and good luck. Fentanyl is tough to kick. Chest pain is quite common.
Avatar m tn my dad had 5 episodes of seizure like activity starting may 2009 while asleep,the last one a week ago. his eyes were open, face and limbs rigid, and was not breathing. i positioned him on his side and performed head tilt and chin lift. this allowed some secretion to flow out of his mouth and very slowly he regained respiration. immediately he falls into deep sleep and cannot be waken up for at least 15 minutes.
Avatar f tn I detoxed of 75 mcg every 48 hours of Fentanyl. All I can say is go VERY slowly. What kind of patch do you have? Fentanyl withdrawal is a bit different than other opiates. Not as bad as methadone but pretty tough in it's own right. But it can be done. At times I tried to go too quickly and that was a huge mistake. follow the Thomas Recipe and above all, keep yourself as hydrated as possible. Best of luck. You can message me if you like.
Avatar n tn The more fatty tissue in the chest area, the more space it takes up making less room for the lungs to expand with breathing. As far as the major cause of restrictive disorders..there are many diseases that cause this defect. There are intrinisic diseases (such as pulmonary fibrosis etc...) that cause scarring and rigid lungs making expansion difficult for the lungs.
Avatar n tn ex-smoker (quit before a year). I have a mild pressure in the left side of the chest and vibration at the back (exactly near the left back bone). Not aggrevating during exertion. Took all the test (ecg, 2d echo, stress) and almost two and half years back and everything came normal. Cholestrol levels are good, no diabetes. Gastroenterologist prescribed HP Kit after taking endoscopy. The pain got relieved for a few months (actually started in July 2009).
