Hydrocodone and edema

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and edema


Avatar m tn I have been taking Vicodin 10/325, 1-2 tab every 4-6 hr and Hydrocodone 40mg three times a day for pain suffered from a car accident with a semi truck and injuring my neck and back. My questions is in January 2014 I started having bilateral swelling in my feet that progressed to both legs to thighs and I read a post on here that someone else experienced this same problem. Medically I have been cleared for kidneys, liver and the cardiac cath came back ok.
Avatar m tn This is when I noticed the swelling. I also take hydrocodone 10/325 for break thru pain and 70 mg of methadone for pain. Didrex to help lose weight. Currently I am enrolled in a program to have weight loss surgery. However, my thyroid is not regular so until my synthroid starts working & my thyroid is regular for six months the surgeon will not perfom the WLS. Please help! I am a widow & raising my 16 year old daughter.
Avatar n tn Two months ago as a pedestrian hit by a drunk driver suffering no broken bones (parking lot at noon, low speed) but severe right knee and leg injuries. Hydrocodone taken every 4 hours the 500mg tab with Naproxen twice daily. Two weeks ago started having pain in upper right quadrant radiating through to back. Terrible headaches, severe pain through injured knee area with great upwelling of bruising continued through physical therapy. Waves of nausea.
Avatar n tn For a perspective, pulmonary edema (water in the lungs) and pneumonia are separate issues. Pulmonary edema is usually related to LV dysfunction. It appears the underlying problem is the mitral valve sclerosis (narrowing of opening) and mitral valve regurgitation. The valve problems can stress the heart and cause it to enlarge, and/or an ischemic enlarged LV can aggravate the valve problems especially MVR.
Avatar n tn s not too uncommon (25% of people) for the reaction to start with a rash or hives and progress to full edema over the course of 1 to 4 days...
Avatar m tn And starting today I now have edema in both ankles. Never had this before.
Avatar f tn ve been doing some reading online and from my findings edema does show up with a mass and can prevent them from finding it in an mri.
Avatar n tn 2) With the edema being bilateral and equal is there any other test recommended at all to figure this out? 3) Presuming this is a valid school of though, do the symptoms directly come from the edema/impared venous return? Or is the edema just co-existing? (ie-- Would diurectics help the palpitations, etc. even if they don't figure out the root problem?) Still a mystery after almost a year...getting worse actually.
Avatar f tn I have had the edema on and off, and my Endo used to check my ankles when I had an office visit, so with Hashi's it is common, although I have not had shortness of breath.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am still swollen and Im not sure but it may be more swollen now than it was. Should I go back to the doctor? I know you said it takes a while to go down, I just am very uncomfortable.
Avatar f tn I had a total hip replacement 12/09/2010 and have had foot and ankle edema since. Within the last few months, I have developed foot and ankle edema in the left foot as well. I do not have any liver or pancreatic disease but just found out that I do have a gallstone. I have no symptoms pertaining to the gallstone. I have Hypothyroidism and am on Levothyroxin 100 mcg Monday through Friday, 50 mcg on Saturday and none on Sunday.
Avatar f tn An edema is a buildup of fluid. A bone marrow edema — often referred to as bone marrow lesion — occurs when fluid builds up in the bone marrow. Bone marrow edema is typically a response to an injury such as a fracture or conditions such as osteoarthritis. Bone marrow edema usually resolves itself with rest and physical therapy. Osteitis pubis is a condition in which there’s inflammation where the right and left pubic bones meet at the lower front part of the pelvis.
Avatar n tn The extra fluid and sodium increases pressure in your blood vessels, causing edema. Edema associated with kidney disease usually occurs in your legs and around your eyes. Kidney damage. Damage to the tiny blood vessels in your kidneys (glomeruli) that filter waste and excess water from your blood can result in nephrotic syndrome. One result of nephrotic syndrome is low levels of protein (albumin) in your blood, which can lead to fluid accumulation and edema. Worst case scenarios.
Avatar m tn Edema most commonly occurs in the feet and legs, where it is referred to as peripheral edema...an indentation that persists for some time after the release of the pressure, the edema is referred to as pitting edema... You did not list symptoms associated with congested heart failure and if your doctor has ruled out CHF then there may be an underlying cause with the following: Liver failure should be ruled out. 3.
Avatar m tn t realize anything until I started looking at things and noticed that I have pitting edema in both legs. It is mild, relatively, but it is certainly there and doesn't ever go away. Leg symptoms are mostly stiffness with occasional very mild cramping. To be fair, I did gain perhaps 30 pounds in the year before all this began and I now weigh 275 and I'm 5'10.
7584265 tn?1392247037 Sections from the left and right colon biopsy show portions of colonic mucosa with moderate edema and mild chronic inflammation of lamina propria. The inflammation is non-specific. Can someone tell me what does this all mean?? My research has lead to Chron's disease, colitis, chonic gastritis, barrett esophagus, EGID, EoE, Reflus Esophagitis and Celiac diease and other food allergies. Can someone please help?
Avatar f tn btw, hydrocodone does not contain acetaminophen. Medications like Vicodin and Norco contain both hydrocodone and acetaminophen, but hydrocodone is itself a semi-synthetic opioid, similar to oxycodone.
Avatar f tn Dr assured me it was the meds and it would go away. It did for awhile and now it is back. Is there something better to take that does not cause these kind of effects?
Avatar n tn This is only part of the picture though, I constantly am feeling like something is tugging at my heart, or putting extra work on it and I feel weak and lightheaded almost all the time, but there is a rare day where i feel better. I have also developed some +1 (as i was told) edema is both lower legs, and my lower legs are sometimes crampy or my legs feel sluggish and stiff especially at the ankles.
483733 tn?1326798446 I am taking 300 mg of Lyrica a day. I am having heavy swelling in my hands, feet and ankles and doctor put me on Lasix. It is helping a bit but still uncomfortable and pain. I've put a lot of weight on and am also having bad memory problems (can't find my words) and blurry vision. Is there anything that can be done that doesn't require me to get off of Lyrica? it really helps my pain. If I have to get off of it what is the best way to do so?
1293682 tn?1311956071 Its so weird, I didnt have this trouble when not taking one everyday a month or so ago. Just sporadic edema and not bad... now that I am taking a diuretic everyday, I swear its worse. I am holding on to 3-4 lbs of water a day. Then some days, it will drop that whole 4 lbs in a few hours. I was starting to think I had just gained the lbs before that happened. its frustrating.
