Avatar n tn I was given flonase today for my nasal congestion. Is flonase good to be on also how long before it works I am told it won't work right away??
3119293 tn?1342054132 First, can someone point to a reliable web site where they list the symptoms? Second, how long I can expect this general lousy feeling last? And last, how long will it take to get back to a feeling where I want to do more than just lay around all day? Thank you all in advance for answering my questions.
351724 tn?1267540618 its not just about the lab work, its other things too. for the first time ever, my family doc got to see how sick i get. i sat in the sun before my appt. to cause a flare up so she could see what i go through!!! make sure you get more doc opinions before the nose surgery, make sure you really need it. my nose surgery was not cosmetic, actually, you could not even tell my nose was broken. i hope everthing works out for you, i really do!!!!!
Avatar n tn This is called eosinophilic pneumonia, and can look like regular pneumonia on a chest x-ray, the difference is eosinophilc pneumonia is not infectious there is no bacteria causing it, it is caused by this infiltrating blood cell (eosinophil) that inflames the lungs, and only steriods will control it, or chemo. Many do seem to have to keep getting on steroids for the asthma, that is so bad, but they just can't get well.
Avatar f tn I know I need to wean the medication slowly but don't know whether I should take 500 mg daily and skip a day and then take it again the next or what is best to do or how long to do it. Could anyone give me any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
Avatar m tn hee, hee, I wasn't laughing at your recommendation, just at the thought of so many of us trying it. Sadly, it didn't work for me, I'm still in trigeminy at the moment, but maybe it will help someone else.
Avatar dr m tn For many people with obstructive sleep apnea, nasal congestion and chronic sinus infections are a common problem. Nasal irrigation with saline is a natural way of clearing nasal and sinus passageways. The Neti-Pot is a yogic variation of saline irrigation that became much more popular after Oprah's recommendation. Many of my patients that have tried this method report good results, with better breathing and less sinus pressure and headaches.
Avatar m tn It felt like I had a knot in my chest that wouldnt let me take a full breath . Sometimes I had to bend down to take a full breath it was hoorrible I spent 2 years gointo different doctors . Taking all kind of meds from like Nexium ,Zyrtec medicataion for astma . Finnaly one doctor gave me samples of Prilosec and all these symptoms disappered in 3 hours I keept taking prilosec for 2 weeks and I dont have the symptoms to these days (its been 8 Years ) - See more at: http://www.*************.
Avatar f tn I have a good doctor (specialist) but he doesn't explain things to me. I'm trying to be better at understanding the situation and what I must do. I find it hard to take a lot of meds - just a quirk of mine or stubbornness. I will look into the homeopathic medicines and the mask. Again, thank you.
Avatar n tn The only way it can get worse it to take another pill. I hope things ease up for you guys. I know how hard it is....cause I'm on day 5 tomorrow.
1001981 tn?1293982081 I could never tolerate prednisone ever. It seems that it helped for the day or two that I could take it. I take it with food it doesn't matter. I have trouble with all types of those meds. I did the Afrin for three days and have just run out of Flonase. My ENT does allergy testing and the shots, my insurance pays for that had all that done so many years ago - know all the main ones, mold, ragweed,house dust, oak pollen.
4622451 tn?1360598855 You have to close the door on the past and realize that your recovery started back when you said you wanted to quit. I don't know how long ago it was since I said that because it was years ago, however I will bet that if you took my clean time now and multiplied it by 20 it would be in the ballpark. Everyone's recovery looks different but you learn more with every relapse. I think about my behaviors as likely as much as you think about your hyper...thing.
Avatar m tn I was dizzy all the time last year and it had nothing to do with my ears. It was actually my neck and I started seeing a Chiropractor for it. It has helped a lot since then! I also cut gluten out of my diet. I also got bad migraines a lot and after doing those two things, they reduced a lot. Do you take any allergy medications or nasal steroid sprays? I always get bad allergies every year in the spring and end up with sinus infections.
Avatar f tn I found a Vitamin D deficiency group on Facebook. That's how I learned to take supplements and why. You need to know you have to take supplements for life. Higher doses in the winter, lower doses in the summer if you're getting the UVB rays. Yes D deficiency (as well as magnesium and B12 deficiency) can cause anxiety, depression, fatigue, headaches, muscle weakness, etc. The first few weeks I took my supplements I felt awful. My body/bones ached so bad (also can feel like the flu).
Avatar m tn It also works very well for me, but I'm concerned if it is safe for long term use. Patanol is rather expensive and so I'd just prefer to use otc drops. Also, is it safe to also use an otc natural tear solution if the antihistamine dries out the eyes? Thanks.
Avatar n tn It doesn't matter what temperature the water is, or how long I am exposed to it for, for the hives to occur. The thing I find strange is that it only affects my torso, and never my legs, face, or lower arms. I was only 2 or 3 years ago when i researched "water allergy" on the internet that I came to know what the condition was called. Everything I read about Aquagenic Urticaria that described the symptons, exactly matched what I have experienced for the last 23 years...
Avatar dr m tn Fifth, if you have any known allergies, especially if it's something in your bedroom, try to either remove it or or lessen your exposure to it. For example, many people are allergic to dust or molds, and if you have carpeting, or an area rug, it can harbor these allergens. Frequently washing your bed sheets in very hot water also helps. Investing in a quality HEPA filter should help even more. If you have any pets, consider keeping them out of your bedroom.
Avatar n tn Also, how long does it usually take to see results? Like if there is no change in a week or so, is this not the treatment for me? Thanks!
1278060 tn?1271112513 It is very difficult for me to be around people indoors, due to reactions to perfumes. It is embarrasing when the person tells me they don't have perfume on. Thus it could be in the lotion they have on. Does anybody have this problem? What do you do to keep it under control? I have changed my diet to include more vegetables. Gone to chiropractor, homoeopathic, acupuncturist, MD, Allergist, Pulmonary specialist.
Avatar m tn Anyway, it's a much better technique than antibiotics, and people need to know about it. I've been trying to get a doctor to take it, but it seems they have no incentive to discuss it with others. I guess pharmaceutical companies can't profit off it, so it remains ignored.
746512 tn?1388811180 However if I breathed really deep in, the spray seemed to loosen my chest and made it feel better for 15 minutes or so. The allergist did peak flow meter and the values were normal, also had full pulmonary function tests done and they came back normal as well. The problem was both of those appointments were middle of the day and I felt fine during them. Does this sound like mild asthma?
Avatar n tn How often should I take one pill to taper off, and for how long? I'm not feeling any real physical symptoms right now. Keep in mind, up until yesterday I was doing 8-10 every day, and yesterday I had two at 8 in the morning, and didn't have another one until 9am this morning, and haven't had one since. And once the physical symptoms of withdrawal are gone, how do I kick the psycological symptoms (I have a feeling they will be worse than the physical symptoms)? Anyone?
Avatar n tn I hope this helps, it really scared me. It is something to take seriously. I'm on antibiotics for 10 days now. My doctor told me to throw away all of my make-up as it may be contaminated..... I'm doing that too! Good luck and hope everyone does what they need to do to feel better. I wanted to post this so that people take it seriously, as some of the posts make it seem like it will just go away,or have doctors that didn't take it seriously. I feel that people need to act on this one.
352007 tn?1372861481 I meant that he doesn't need to be specialized in referrals to send you to a specialist. Though it does seem he likes to send you to others to make a diagnosis for him.
Avatar m tn Sorry for the encyclopedia but if you could answer these questions for me I'd be forever in your gratitude. Thanks for all the great work you do. It can't be easy to continuously answer the same questions over and over again.
Avatar f tn I did some reading and saw that this takes a long long time to go away. And, after it does go away, it could resurface when their immune system is stressed. They can also be carriers and infect other cats. That is what I worry about with her other 4 kitties. One of them, REALLY doesn't need this virus. He's 15 and has kidney disease. I constantly stress over this kitten giving this nasty virus with the other ones. Not a day goes by that I don't worry over it.
Avatar f tn At best it's just plain mean to abandon their patient during the diagnosis process. In my opinion it is unethical. It would be wise for you to continue working with your PCP and keep an eye on you. The good news is that anything life threatening has been ruled out - so continue your search for answers at a pace you are comfortable with. The best piece of advise for now is to treat ANY infection promptly. If you suspect a UTI in anyway get in checked out.
Avatar n tn I am 45 and I cannot live the rest of my life like this anymore. If that does not work, then I am praying for death to take me. I can't kill myself because I believe I will go to hell if I do that.Jesus cured so many people when he was here. I wish I could just reach out and touch him and I know I would be cured too. But he isn't here. Thanks all for reading this.
Avatar n tn If you have ever had your finger pricked for a blood sample, that is how it feels in my fingers, except the pain lasts for five to ten minutes. It is very strange how the pain radiates around and may only affect the tip of one finger sometimes or usually the thumb, other fingers and the palm of the hand. I first noticed I was having trouble with my feet when I was golfing. The last three toes on my left foot were cold and numb and the foot almost felt dead.
Avatar n tn The prednisone does help for a while, but as someone stated they won't give it to you for long. I am on antibiotics now, and woke up at 3am with an itching, allergic reaction, and my throat on fire, red, red, red. Called my doctor, doubled my antihistimine, nasal sprays, etc. Do sinus rinses. I do have 2 dogs, but try to keep the house clean. I am actually thinking of paying someone to do the cleaning now!
