2186126 tn?1384961026 Prior to taking the meds, she was always happy and interested in a walk - granted always hungry, but vivacious, full of life. After taking trilostane, it's as if she shut done. I feel that in some dogs, the medicine stops their cortisol production and then somehow it triggers something else that causes them to shut down. I've read now that internal medicine veterinary specialists believe in not treating Cushing's and letting it run its course.
Avatar m tn and NOT seizure activity. Another thing I want to add is that a few times in the past he would come in the room and say 'I'm going to get a knife and kill you, my mom, the dogs and myself", then proceed to go to the kitchen and come back with a knife. Thankfully my stepson is not very strong and fast so I was able to disarm him with no problem. We tell the doctors everything I have listed here, and the only answer we get is either 'see another doctor' or keep him on his meds and watch him.
369472 tn?1198749292 Dark meat poultry, fatty hamburger, ground lamb, and canadian bacon are good choices. Of course, dogs in renal failure are so nauseated, it's hard to get them to eat anything, so if she won't eat the low-phosphorus foods, just get something in her. To counteract phosphorus, give her one or two Tums antacid tablets a day - or any indigestion tablet that is primarily calcium. The calcium binds with phosphorus and carries out of the body so it can't do further harm to the kidneys.
Avatar m tn She is not on any medicine at this point and it was only in on the anti-seizure medicine for several days with no improvement in the twitch or Tremors as we may call them. Her lethargy has gone away and her appetite has improved and she is back to pretty much for normal self. I think some of her behavior was related to my wife and I being gone for a good 10 to 12 days due to a death in the family. The Twitches of the ears did not seem to occur while walking her or when she is laying down.
Avatar n tn When there's widespread numbness and tingling along with other scattered symptoms, it's difficult to localize the lesion to specific spots in the brain that may be damaged by MS. However, there is a small amount of patients who DO have nonspecific, vague neurologic symptoms that don't localize anywhere and the MRI shows classic MS spots throughout the brain and spinal cord. In your case, though, the MRI (should have brain AND spine) was clean which makes the diagnosis of MS much less likely.
Avatar n tn My husband is 30-years olf and in the hospital right now. He had been on 50 mg of Zoloft for about a month. Then his dosage was increased to 100 mg and about 2-days later he was having severe chest pain and weakness in his legs. He went to an urgent care, where they said that he had a very rapid pulse and gave him something to slow it down. The said that the Zoloft was causing this and to discontinue using it.

Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.

Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
Avatar n tn My neurologist in Waco did a MRI on my neck and it came back that I had mild bulging disc in my neck but it was not a nerve so they said that it probably is not the cause of what’s going on. The neurologist also put me in the hospital to try this medication DHE which it is suppose to get rid of the migraines . Well I still had to take medication after discharged from the hospital and they are still bad and everyday.
Avatar f tn I've been thinking about getting another MRI with contrast just in case there's a clot or something in my head that is causing my symptoms and it didn't show because I didn't get the contrast.
Avatar n tn I am a 33 year old female who's mother was also given *Bendectin*. I have battled many health problems over the years, and also have a deformed foot. My Right foot is wider then the left by great amounts, my second and third toes are postioned in the V shape pulling away from one another a little more everyday. The third toe is my Turtle :) as I call him...(The large cushion of fatty tissue sits on top like a turtle shell) I started calling it my turtle as a way of dealing with deformity.
Avatar n tn I rarely have colds and don't have allergies per se. I do have mild sinus issues that are aggravated by changes in the weather, but nothing major at all. The smoke smell is driving me crazy!
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms in my lower left leg. I Googled the problem and found your comments. I am going to the Dr. on Monday. I will post what ever I find.
Avatar m tn They are very random and can occur when she's sitting, walking, running or laying in bed. They also can occur once in a day or week, or several times in the same day. She has had ultrasounds, xrays, mri's, vein tests, nerve tests, etc., and no doctor yet has diagnosed her problem. It scares the heck out of me sometimes because it comes on so quick that there is a violent jerk reaction followed by cries of pain and agony.
Avatar n tn Those are mild muscle spasms. There has been a mild buildup of lactic acid in the most active muscles. At higher concentrations, you get full-blown muscle cramps. During vigorous exercise, the lactic acid builds up faster than your body can get rid of it. In some people, such things as caffeine and dairy products exacerbate this buildup.
Avatar m tn You did a great job with your dog in that he lived for 14 years and was in good health. The same things that cause sudden death in humans happen to dogs as well. So the answer to you question is yes, dogs can die suddenly with no symptoms that anything is wrong. As traumatic as it is to those of us left behind, it was a kindness that he never had to suffer and likely didn't even know anything was wrong. Sometimes there just aren't any good answers.
Avatar f tn I have many dogs and havn't seen this before, I wondered if it's early signs of Ataxia but if so it is very mild, He was very relaxed at the time and is a VERY Calm pup. I have been watching him since and havn't seen this again. Can a holistic veterinarian please answer?
Avatar f tn The initial symptoms of the disorder are mild, so mild, in fact, that you may not even have realized that they were symptoms at all. Clinical signs of CDS are found in 50% of all dogs by the age of 11, and by the time they are 15, some 70% of them are showing at least one sign. Many of the symptoms are things that the average person would simply chalk up to the fact that the dog is getting older.
1110049 tn?1409405744 The advisory was issued due to a significant increase in reported adverse reactions -- everything from mild skin irritation to seizures and death. In 2008, over 44,000 reactions presumed to be tied to spot-on products were reported by pet owners, veterinarians and other animal caretakers. If you’re wondering why the EPA is involved in regulation of a pet medication, it’s because these particular products are considered pesticides, and pesticides fall under the EPA’s jurisdiction.
Avatar f tn That time I called the vet immediately who said it was likely a mild seizure and to watch her closely and if she acted abnormally at all to bring her in. She recovered and wanted to play again before I was off the phone with the vet and didn't have any other issues. The same thing happened a third time another 2 or maybe even 3 months later. We had some company and she was racing up and down the stairs and on her way down she whimpered and her legs went stiff and she started to fall.
Avatar f tn I believe I picked it up from a dog with mange in Thailand. Could I transfer the mites to the indoor dogs at my home? I was told that if i got it from a dog it would not survive or reproduce in a human. Very mixed information out there.
Avatar n tn ___Episodes of confusion and disorientation that are usually transient (and very scary); often can be seizure-like in nature ___Poor sleep (especially difficulty falling asleep); poor sleep quality ___Joint pain and stiffness (often both Left and Right sides as opposed to Lyme which is often on one side only with pain and stiffness that changes locations) ___Muscle pains especially the calves; may be twitching and cramping also ___Foot pain, more in the morning involving the heels or
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
544292 tn?1268886268 Theres a lot of conflicting information about seizures on the list. I've never seen anYone have a seizure in tramadol WITHDRAWAL. Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc).
Avatar f tn My dog's eye was bloodshot a couple of weeks ago so I put some eyedrops in them a couple of times and it seemed to get better. Today we went out on a hike in a wooded area and this evening the same eye is rolling back into his head. I gave him a benadryl thinking it might be allergies but I need to know if anyone else has had this happen before. Some say it's because of a seizure but I've had a dog that had seizures and I haven't seen him have one.
9702001 tn?1405379554 Yesterday after I gave her the second dose of 1/4 of Phenobarbital she had another seizure while not even moving..She was standing in sit, then I saw her wanting to get up and she wobbled, hit the near-by wall and then I caught her and held her for 5 seconds. She peed a bit, and then she got back on her feet.. That and the state she was in because of the drug scared the living hell out of me.
