293157 tn?1285877039 I will keep taking the gabapentin, and give it time to work... and up it slowly.
Avatar n tn This pain would intensify which would cause me to wince in pain and then release and then repeat all over again every 5-10 seconds for about a minute. This pain did not radiate anywhere but only within a specific point. Then this same stabbing sensation occurred half way up to the first knuckle of my right middle finger about 30 minutes later. Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar n tn I feel the vibration all day long and it has a pattern to it. It is a weired feeling and I can not figure out what causes this and why it will not go away. Can you tell me why I feel this?
Avatar f tn 30 am, and my T3 when I wake up. I do not eat after 8pm and no meds or calcium after 8pm then in the morning (8am) I have what ever I want for breakfast and start my vit and calcium. I went through hypocalcemia after surgery, so I need to take calcium right away when I wake up most days. That alone took so adjusting.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
544292 tn?1268886268 You're in the right place if you want off the Tramadol! You can do it! I believe in you!
544292 tn?1268886268 Please make yourself at home and snuggle down. It will be a bit bumpy, but worth it!
390388 tn?1279639813 I have IBS already so this was not a good thing and I stoped the med. I was on the generic form called gabapentin. I am sorry ur DH is having such a tough time and I pray u can find something that works well for him.
544292 tn?1268886268 This is the place to be if you are trying to recover from Tramadol ... Please make yourself at home!
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors, Welcome to the room, snuggle down and make yourself comfy. You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recover. I believe in you!
Avatar f tn the best thing I have found for nighttime leg cramps is good old TUMS. I just had a cramp, rolled over to my night stand and took 2 and within a minute or less it was gone. (I would have gone back to sleep, but I woke up the dogs and had to let them out! lol) Good luck and please, if I leave you with anything, remember this... the more pharmaceuticals you take, the less your body is able to help itself heal.
1331804 tn?1336870958 I might try taking 1/2 the normal dose of Gabapentin today to see how things go. I typically take 2 gabapentin (600 mg) at 10 ish am or so and the other two at 6 ish pm or so. The flexeril I typically take 1 upon waking, and then 1 at noon and then 1 at 4pm. The valium I typically take 1-2 mg at 2 pm and 1 mg at bedtime. But obviously given what happened yesterday, I am going to have to tweak the schedule.
147426 tn?1317269232 Like a med containing calcium (TUMS) will render some antibiotics (Erythromycin and others in its class) completely useless because they bind together in the stomach and are pooped out together. Well, there is another way and it is not important that you understand exactly what happens, but it can play REAL havoc with your meds. Tegretol is metabolized in the liver. It also "induces" or rev's up a set of enzymes in the liver that can metabolize other meds faster.
544292 tn?1268886268 D I just love you guys! Such honesty and kindness and willingness to help. It's such a blessing! I think this place attracts some of the most intelligent and caring people in the world. So gratifying. I haven't posted for a very long time ... but I will always keep this thread going. I remember so well the desperation I had to hear from anyone ... anyone about how they got off. Now there's years worth of posts from people round the world who kicked Tram.
Avatar f tn I have recently had a new issue come up over the past few weeks where I wake up and can barely breathe, feels like I got sick in my mouth and inhaled it then I choke for several minutes. During the day I am having a hard time swallowing food, sometimes saliva too, to the point that I can almost not breathe. I have to have water with me at all times. I have to self-cath myself as I can not go the restroom "all" the time like normal.
Avatar f tn I also slept lst night (to my surprise) - I took 2 of my restless leg meds (gabapentin/neurontin) and slept all night. This is 39 hours in...I have enough of the restless leg meds to last at LEAST a week (maybe 2) even at 2 per night (THANK GOD I used them sparingly all throughout my taper!!!!!) Please keep praying, keep posting, keep encouraging, and offering wisdom, advice, and personal experiences...
Avatar n tn In fact, THAT was the single clue that convinced the neuro I was right about the cause. Prior to stopping the B50, the estrogen patch and switching from Tums to Viactiv (for calcium) made it (numbness) worse, and if I exercised hard, things got better. In retrospect, all those clues made sense. Exercise leaches B6 out of the muscle tissue (where it is stored), so it can get flushed. Estrogen affect B6 in ways I don't fully understand.
Avatar n tn I have a white coated tongue and it burns and feels almost like sandpaper. My lips too are dry and cracked constantly. My mouth is very dry. I have good and bad news. The good is that it could be only a yeast infection in your mouth called thrush. The bad news is that ive been treated for thrush 3 or 4 times in my 4 year quest to get rid of this. Your symptoms sound like thrush as does mine. My symptoms have alleviated in the past year or two but it is still slightly there.
Avatar f tn For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs. I followed a very low-fiber, low-fat, bland diet.
Avatar n tn It has been 9 days since I made my post and not one response. Was it just ignored or no one knows what it could be?
Avatar n tn days when I can barely function and have also experienced symptoms of hypoglycemia and panic attacks and or crying jags for no reason. I have been reading a lot about the Depo side effects some women have had and they mirror mine. I've had a thyroid test and it was fine, so I don't think that I'm diabetic. I have been trying to eat well and clense with milk thistle to try to hasten the exit of the Depo.
Avatar n tn I can be in the shower or laying in bed and the smell won't go away, it smells like i'm in an enclosed garage with a gas powered vehicle running. Is this common?, I have never had any allergies.
Avatar n tn U have already had the worst of it and now, they will begin to taper off and get better and better. The irritability may last a little longer, but not much I imagine. Anyway, congrats. U took the meds like u should and didnt ever get into trouble w/ them. That says a lot to me. Anyway, that makes a difference during all of this, in my opinion. Stay positive and by the end of the weekend, I bet they are a memory, distand I hope. How is your pain now? Do u have another way to manage it?
Avatar n tn I was raised in New England and have been doing development work in SE Asia for the past 3 decades. I am overwieght at 220 lbs and 6 ft in height, but have lost 20 lbs over the last few months on a low carb diet with lots of fresh salads. I haven't had any significant health issues for quite a while. I used to exercise regularly, even running marathons (Honolulu 2003), but slowed down a lot a few years ago due to the work load. Now I am starting to exercise more again.
Avatar n tn He did put me on Gabapentin and now Lyrica. It takes the edge off, but when one episode strikes....all hell breaks loose. I can not move until my leg has finished having it's "seizure". Feels like I licked my big toe and stuck it in a socket. This is a horrible pain from my knee to my hip. I am not CRAZY! This PAIN is REAL and I can not live with it much longer. I have no where else to turn to. I have checked the internet, emailed several specialists and no help. PLEASE....
Avatar n tn First, I will feel a bit dizzy and nauseas, then I will have to run to the bathroom because the diarrhea hits me and I feel like while I'm going to the bathroom I will pass out, then the nausea and dizziness with cold chillls and then I am hot so I have to take the sweater off that I put on because I was cold. I am 30 years old and I have a mild case of lupus that has been under control with plaquinil over the past ten years.
436516 tn?1382388265 A throat specialist went down with a scope and said everything was normal. My doctor diagnosed allergy or sinus problems, and possible asthma, and put me on antihistamines and an asthma inhaler. None of it worked. Then she put me on Claritin D and it seemed to work for at least a year. Then it came back again and she put me on a different brand of Claritin D-like medication. Nothin'. Then I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux. They put me on Prevacid which worked again, for about a year.
