Neurontin and kidney failure

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin and kidney failure


Avatar n tn For the past four days, I have been urinating blood, and not oh it's pink, It is completely opaque red. I have no pain at all... is this a kidney infection, or something more serious like kidney failure, or a tumor I don't know at this point I'm on Topamax, Wellbuitrin, and Fluoxetine Thank you for any suggestions or tips or comparable stories, and yes I'm going to the dr. I would like to know what to expect.
Avatar m tn So according to test results, I have no kidney infection and no kidney stones because according to my doctor, kidney stones will show some trace of blood in my detailed urine exam. Also note that during the episode of my back/kidney ache, my chest pain was very little to almost gone. Although they came back a little bit but not to the point that i would go crazy.
Avatar m tn For copax, there is a small percentage of patients (2%) in after marketing studies who experienced kidney or flank pain, and I read about an instance of kidney failure, but seen no reference to the actual percentage or instances of how many. I'll dig for the source for you if you are interested. As far as provigil, you may find more information if you look for post marketing adverse reactions,kidney/renal (as key words) problems for modafinil. What kind of doc looking into this for you?
Avatar n tn I have restless leg syndrome (severe), back and neck pains, bi-polar disorder, as well as renal failure. I really don't want this surgery (there is a chance of him cutting my vocal chord nerve, which would leave me speaking with a hoarse tone (and only above a whisper) for the rest of my life. Seems like I'm falling apart!
Avatar n tn Thanks so much for the replies. I'm currently ending a very stressful period (son had a kidney transplant) and I've been in a flare for months as a result of a bad fall I took last winter. I'm overweight even though my caloric intake is low. My thyroid is normal and my doc says I must exercise vigorously and cut calories.

This happens with some diseases of the liver and kidney, in patients with congestive heart failure, in burn victims, and in numerous other conditions.
1794671 tn?1338798991 I don't understand why, well I understand that their pain works maybe for the listd medications that it is for but neurontin and tramadol and other meds didn't work for me as well as norco, and the other higher pain meds just made me feel loopy or didnt help at all, just raised my tolerance.
Avatar f tn I have severe pain in my legs especially in my feet, migraines, lower bag pain, tons of Kidney infections, lumps and pain in my neck and shoulders, IBS, chronic fatigue sometimes I can't walk but always manage to just work through the pain. I also have tingling and numbness in my fingers, and hands which makes me a little concerned about diabetes. I was diagnosed with Fibro when I was 32. I am now only 34. I Unlike the last post from beba214 think your concerns are valid!
Avatar n tn In 1997, my Grandfather died from sever kidney failure associated with his taking handfuls of Fiorinal. I'm sure he was taking them for years before he ended up on dialasis but the outcome was devastating to my family & very much myself. You'd think that'd been enough to keep my sorry butt from abusing the Vicodin...But it didn't. I'm not familiar with the make-up of Fiorinal as opposed to Vicodin but I no longer have my Grandpop. He suffered from so many headaches.
Avatar n tn I had alot of trouble with pain (still struggle with it 2 months post tx) and found a combination of Neurontin 1200-1400 mg/day and Oxycodone 15mg/day to be helpful. The Neurontin helps with nerve pain from peripheral neuropathy. If your husband has pain from nerve damage, then this might help. I take two 300mg doses during the day and 600 at night. In combination with the Oxycodone, the night dose makes me very sleepy. I finished my 96 wks of Pegasys at the end of November.
Avatar n tn My very good friend, a percocet abuser, just got off a dialysis machine 2 days ago, for failed liver and kidney function. He is an otherwise healthy 32 year old man. Then there are changes that occur to the brain, that in many cases can be permanent. Some addiction specialists draw the analogy of an addicts brain to a person that has had a stroke. Although recovery is CERTAINLY possible, the addict has to basically train different parts of the brain to resume normal function.
1036535 tn?1278506199 What I thought was a sudden failure of Neurontin, and another sign it was actually fibro not MS due to rapid return of a few sx (following a week of high activity and high temps), turned out to be something else entirely. I called my GP and told them I was feeling terrible, and I thought I had a kidney stone that got stuck. This has happened to me before. My GP was booked and wanted me to go to the ER in case I needed a CT/surgery/etc.
Avatar n tn Then at the age of 25 finally a doctor said to me Robert you have the begining stages of chronic renal failure and you calcium is way to high and your phosporus is way to low so im sending you to an Endocrinologist.It was then that he discovered I had what was called Hyperparathyroidism and was sent to the West Reading Hospital where the Director of surgons removed one of the parathyroids.

Avatar f tn I have been having lots of problems.. kidney failure, liver disease, and pins and needles, shooting pain etc.. I have been put on Vit D 3 times now at 50,000 iu a week for 9 weeks as my level was 9.. now I have been sent to the Cleveland Clinic and found out I am pre-diabetic but with all the complications of a full blown diabetic.. I am now in a wheelchair and they said I have neuropathy and that all my probs are a combination..
Avatar f tn Neurontin (gabapentin), usually prescribed for seizures and nerve pain helps my painless tingling as well as my anxiety. The only problem is it's half short life, which is only about six hours, so you have to take it three times a day, usually. I take a 100 mg. capsule and within an hour, my tingling is gone. I'd advise anyone with tingling due to anxiety to give it a try as it has a very benign side effect profile.
Avatar f tn Neuropathy may be caused by Diabetes Mellitus, Vitamin B12 and Folate deficiency, Autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis or Guillain-Barre syndrome, AIDS, syphilis, and kidney failure. Exposure to toxins, such as heavy metals, gold compounds, lead, arsenic, mercury, and organophosphate pesticides, and side effects of medications like antibiotics such as metronidazole, isoniazid etc may also cause neuropathy.
406584 tn?1399591666 he also said we need to protect my kidney and this new bp med helps the blood flow thru it helping it to function better. this makes my regiment for bp with clonidine maxide verapamil and now losartan.. not happy but grateful they have these meds to extend my life.

Avatar n tn My name is sheila I've had 3 back surgeries and after the second one I caught an infection in my back and was put on medication which gave me kidney failure. I'm having the same pain in my lower back, my butt cheeks, left and right hips. I can't sleep at night or even lay on my back or right hip. I have to sleep on my stomach. I can't stand up for or even sit down for long time. When I get up out of bed or get up from a chair I can't do nothing but cry, the pain is do bad.
Avatar n tn I have stenosis of the spine and the c's and l's are not what they should be, i guess what i am doing is venting and perhaps other people can recognize some of these symtoms, mother died of brain tumors at 43 father alive but has congestive heart failure, dementia, diabetes, colon cancer, was a nurse aide for 7 years and ruined my back and get so tired, forgetful, weak and frightened and take a variety of medications for high blood pressure and high colestrol and anxiety, nothing for pain, as D
Avatar n tn - Pancreatitis, Hepatitis, Jaundice, Palpitations, Hallucinations, Ringing in the ears, Kidney failure, Hair loss and suicidal ideation. Perhaps not a good thing to snort. Take care.
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 message therapy, it helps but only for a short period. And I have tried changing my pillows on my bed and sleeping in different positions and nothing seems to help for long term. What can I do?
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar n tn I think I might have mention above that I was on vent due to losing the ability to breath on my on. I had CHF, pulmonary edema and was on protocol for liver and kidney failure while in CCU. My DR said I didn't have a seizure or stroke. Baby was taken c-section under general anathesia. I have been having different things go on for the past 3 years, its just this pain and the difficultly walking that has me so bother. It really has effected my quality of life.
10996785 tn?1432816577 Allergy's from detox, pneumonia, and a stroke. with the stroke, which is considered small and deep in my cerebellum, my vision and balance was effected. My balance was already damage from the benzo's and alcohol abuse. Lately some of you might have read my last thread that I haven't been feeling well. Actually I haven't felt well for a very long time. I did see my PCP yesterday and we all agreed that the trazodone was the one med that was making me very sluggish.
Avatar dr m tn The theory that these symptoms are caused by infection has long since been discarded, due to the lack of response to antibiotics in these patients and absence of acute infection when epididymal and vasal sections are removed during surgery and analyzed histologically (Selikowitz and Schned, 1985; Chen and Ball, 1991).
Avatar f tn I also have IBS, Sjogren's, migrains and spinal stenosis, insulin dependnad diabetis, early kidney failure, arthritis, sciatica and I'm getting depressed just listing my diseases!
