653169 tn?1303449969 I asked my doc and they just blew me off so have like you guys ended up searching the web. I've just had kidney and liver function tested and both are fine so I must conclude its the morphine. Thanks so much everyone for your contribution and Shanna for asking the question, Seanie.
Avatar f tn As stated above there are several things that could cause ankle swelling. Make sure he checks your liver and kidney function. That could be a reason as well. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I had abdominal pain and kidney pain. While running tests they also found out that I had a kidney stone. My question is the 1st day I was there the doctor wrote 2 to 4mg of morphine every two hours. The nurse came in originally at noon and gave me a 4mg shot of morphine. At 3:30pm (3 1/2 hours later) I called back and asked for another shot.
Avatar m tn I just want to know if it is normal with such a big difference between the pain level day and night??? (For more than a year I have taken different types of morphine.
1028300 tn?1252093974 You have heard right, stents are not the most comfortable things in the world (although some people do tolerate them and have no pain) but in any case it will bypass the stone so your kidney can function properly. Because I don't tolerate stents well, I was in the hospital for weeks with around the clock doses of Demerol and Phenergan.
1926947 tn?1322990201 I'm only 23 years old and where I'm so young my doctor was worried about the significant damage to my kidneys he seen when doing the emergency surgeries and the fact that he cleaned out my kidney and within a week I would have 3-5 stones developing again,so he decided to send me to Duke University Hospital in NC and I live in KY.
Avatar f tn I would add that it's been long enough to have her re-checked all way 'round for the kidney function test for sure and to see if she's healing on target & not having trouble with the wiring, etc. You're being a good kitty owner and I hope your girl will be all right and get relief. Please let us know.

1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar f tn )), but the morphine does help me get up and move, and function. I will say, though, that I believe chronic depression, anxiety and coping skills walk hand-in-hand with addiction. And, chronic depression is often a result of chronic pain. So, in a round about way, they DO co-exist and very often walk hand-in-hand, but they call for different treatments, and should really not be put in 'the bucket' together, like they sometimes are. To answer your question, if this is the case, YES!
1474625 tn?1371100679 dilaudid, morphine, methadone, suboxone, oxycodone (up to 30mg/pill), and finally my weakness Tramadol. I have taken up to 12 pills a day which, depending on various medical journals exceeds the max daily dose by 4 pills due to risk of seizures, which I have had due to Tramadol use. What scares me the most is that if I ever come across "h", I am most likely to try it.
Avatar n tn What pain does the tx cause that requires morphine etc?
Avatar n tn In rarer circumstances, toradol can also adversely influence kidney function. Lovenox is cleared from the body via the kidneys. If you had kidney problems, lovenox levels can go to high. These are the only two interactions I know for these drugs. The only other alternative is sub cutaneous herparin, but this is far less reliable than lovenox. I don't think this one instance proves that you had an interaction or that you are overly sensitive to lovenox.
1794671 tn?1338798991 I have been taking norco throughout my pregnancy because I felt like taking just my breakthrough meds was better then taking it with Morphine, and also better then taking nothing and being unable to function as a human being. My dr was not in agreeance, she throught I should stay on the morphine because of withdrawals but I convinced her that if they got to any point where I was uncomfortable I would take it but I was unable to persevere and just take my norco.
Avatar n tn before, during and after surgery i was given pain meds like morphine, fentanyl(sp?) and more oxycodone. i had no withdrawal symptoms during my stay in the hospital or any time directly after that. that is only my experience so i'm not sure if you can apply it to your father's case or not. i would suspect that at least a little of his problems are a result of his age and condition and possibly even the type of surgery he had.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Opioid-induced hyperalgesia is a condition where the increased use of opiates, like Oxycontin and hydrocodone, heightens one's sensitivity to discomfort and reduces their tolerance for pain. Essentially, people will increase the amount of painkillers they are taking as their discomfort continues to escalate, but the added medication can actually make their pain worse.
Avatar m tn I carried out a lot of blood tests to check the muscle twitching such as electrolyte levels, thyroid function, kidney function and such. However everything was normal except a low iron level in my blood. Could it be magnesium deficiency,B1, B12 or Vitamin D? Since i did not get tested for those.
Avatar n tn We all have to function in our lives and take care of other children and ourselves. I honestly feel that if vicodin were THAT bad our doctors couldn't and wouldn't put it in the hands of pregnant women! We just have to be smart about it. It is amazing to me that we ALL have the same concerns about our unborn children. We're asking ourselves the same questions. I already have a 2 year old and as it goes, guilt and motherhood go hand in hand.
Avatar n tn I am addicted to pain killers due to Kidney stones. But it is not really due to kidney stones, I have been depressed for my entire life and Vicodin cured that better than Prozac. Kidney stones made the pain killers easy to get. Now I am on a taper program to get off the pills and it is miserable. I am not only depressed, but I am still in pain.
Avatar n tn All morphine derivatives are addicting and should only be taken as prescribed with a physician monitoring you. Someone mentioned the term hillbilly heroin. Heroin is the purest form of opium and is highly addictive. So called hillbilly heroin is oxycontin crushed then injected or snorted. Obviously, the route you choose has an effect on developing dependency. Avoid abusing all medications.
Avatar n tn I am on a 30 mg of methadone and 5 mg of kolonopin and am fine. I don't nod and function normal. I am actually being detoxed off the methadone at my own speed. Because I pay! Methadone is fine if your usiing it the way you should be. I had a dope habit for 10 years and have been on and off methadone for just as long. This time I want to be done with it all. I have serious anxiety attacks and need the klonopin to function in front of people normally.
1686743 tn?1306009051 31 and BUN 36 when she ordered it and she knew it. Currently I take 15 mg Morphine every 6 hrs. and 5mg oxycodone as needed for breakthrough . It's not doing the trick anymore. I need a raise. This prescription is a year plus old.. Thanks in advance for any replies in this issue....
Avatar f tn Wouldn't listen that pain started first and while inpatient took morphine to keep under control! He said to learn relaxation exercises for pain control! He said sometimes rare neuro probs could cause gastric motility probs so husband got me to local med school for neuro workup and learned I had Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction--treat symptoms is all that can be done and he sent me to Pain Mgmnt dr and more gastros. These gastros also fixed on gastroparesis.
Avatar f tn I've tried just about everything you could possibly think of (including homeopathic and alternative medicine theparpies) and I can't function with this level of pain. That is why I am considering the Ultram; for pain control and nothing to do with losing weight. Is it worth it?
Avatar f tn Also he wasn't taking any other medications or drugs before this all, other then alcohol. They had him on morphine, and antibiotics while he was on the hospital. To answer any other of your questions, his platelet count, was low. That's all I know. They never game me exact numbers. It must have not been very very low then. Otherwise they probably would have told me more. Sorry for the lach of information before, I guess I didnt think of all this stuff which I should have.
Avatar n tn Some days it is tolerable, and when I say tolerable I mean I can somewhat function, and other days it is unbearable. What is weird, is that when I lay down the symptoms become mcuh milder, sometimes almost total relief. I have no insurance, and can not afford to go through 50 million tests to try to find out what is wrong. I have already spent $2000.00 + on the colonoscopy and ultrasound. This is ruining my life. I can not be the mother or wife I use to be because this consumes me.
Avatar n tn The X-ray came back normal, and I was sent home after receiving Morphine and Valium. Over the next couple of weeks, I continued to see PT, and the spasms were improving, but I was still suffering spasms off and on. I lost my appetite, became nauseated all of the time, and started experiencing explosive diarrhea daily. Over the next 4-6 weeks I had to be seen in the ER twice for dehydration due to the diarrhea, it is still an occasional problem, also involving horrible gas.
Avatar n tn If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
Avatar n tn She is taking 2 tylox and at times is given morphine in the ER or as an inpatient. she has a solitary kidney (rt side.. congenital) the Dr's have said that she has a slight hydroneurosis of the kidney .. and have noticed a dillitation of her ureter midway to the pelvic brim.... but her flow is great... kidney function is normal all blood tests are within normal ranges... yet she is in severe pain..... the doctors have said they see no reason for the pain. which began in May....
Avatar n tn ) I have never posted here, but come for the knowledge and support. I was given a drug for a kidney stone that made me go into immediate withdrawl. It was the worst 4 hours of my life. I thought I was going to die. There are certain pain medicines that don't mix with methadone. Please be very certain of everything they give you. The ones that I know of that you are not suppose to take are Talwin, Stadol, Nubain, and Talacen. This is the list my counselor gave me.
