5264083 tn?1404669334 I know many women have experienced late periods from antibiotics. I'm hoping that someone can tell me their experiences, and how long it took for their period to come.
Avatar f tn Therefore, let us not only give attention to your prostate. I would want to know about your urine culture also. As to treatment, I’d need to see the sensitivities of the bacteria. Tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim as well as Geocillin ( off the U.S. market) are the antibiotics that get the best tissue levels in the non-acutely infected prostate. Hopefully your bacterial strain is sensitive to one of these.
Avatar f tn One of my dearest friends has been suffering with cancer and passed away this weekend .I have been unable to come on for about a week now and I wanted you to know how sorry I was to not be here for you .I have been having some bad health issues and also trying to be there for my friend .I feel close to a nervous breakdown right now and I just can't deal .I hope everything goes well for you today and know I am thinking of you .
Avatar m tn Hope something can give me some relief to this feeling of having to urinate 24/7. I did mention the long periods of masturbation to the urologist and he doesn't think its nerve damage, but he thinks it could have in some way contributed to me getting prostatitis.
Avatar n tn HOW LONG, HOW LONG, pins and needles, itchy, little red bumps. I already fight back thoughts of just ending all my problems the wrong way. What makes me mad now my pain managment doctor would have or hear nothing of the stupid keflex doing this to me. Kept on insisting it has to be the dilaudid in my pain medicine pump in me. And dm it that doctor is a three hour drive one way and $100 in fuel away from me. Being on dissability. That is A LOT of MONEY! So frustrated and scared!!
Avatar m tn Some herbs are most effective they are saw palmetto (to improve the overall health of the prostate), Echinacea (as a general immune-booster), nettle root (for additional prostate support), cramp bark and chamomile (for painful spasms), and the Ayurvedic herb Crataeva (to improve bladder function). It's a long list, but it's unlikely you would need to take all of these herbs.
Avatar f tn How many have you seen and have they done blood work to check and see if you have a vitimin diff.? I am having the some of the same symptoms.
Avatar n tn Appointment on August 31, 2009 and I do not know if I could hold on that long. I wish I could switch bodies with the Drs. If only for a few minutes, so they could see how I feel. I have been gasping for air and coughing a lot. I hate this, I want to exercise but it’s hard to breathe, even if I do 5 minutes of walking or on the treadmill.
Avatar n tn The Doctor now has me on Cefixime for 5 days and then to take Nitrofurantoin for 10 days after that (I think he to is treating me for a UTI). I am still having some mild symptoms with being on this medication and knowing how this has gone for the past 6 months I can till that whatever I have is not gone and will return with a vengeance once I am off this medication.
Avatar f tn Currently I have tingling and burning in my legs and feet with occassional numbness which seems to be brought on when I stand for long periods of time. My left ankle is weak which makes it hard to get moving especially in the morning. My eyes have been extra sensitive to light lately and on some days I experience this blurry vision in my left eye. I also have periodic feelings of numbness in my hands and burning as well.
Avatar n tn Are these affects normal and are they caused by the ecoli or the antibiotics. How long can I expect to feel like this ? Appreciate any feedback.
Avatar m tn had a pretty bad UTI, first round of antibiotics didn't work..... then the next one was supposed to work because it was stronger and it was meant for the type of bacteria that i had. I finished the antibiotics and was so relieved but slowly symptoms started to creep back.I can't tell if i'm paranoid or if i still have an infection.. but i have been taking D-mannose and Uva Ursi for like 3-4 days....haven't noticed anything change but i'm hoping it does.
Avatar m tn remarkabley no pos waves, no fibs,duration normal,amplitude normal,polyphasic none,configuration normal, recruitment normal, nvc normal, f wave peroneal .L normal. My new neuro said that this was to long for als but he is accounting the diplopia and old cramps with this. i have noted weakness in my left hand and am swallowing started bothering my 4 months ago and tongue with fassicultions and had emg in tounge again nothing. original diagnosis was BFS.
Avatar f tn Wonder how much Magnesium you would need to take to get that benefit? Multivitamins w/ no iron of course have all those minerals like zinc, selenium, magnesium. etc.
Avatar m tn I don't think you quite qualify for the "chronic lyme" description yet. That's the good news. You're towards the end of the "early disseminated" and beginning of the "late disseminated" stages. Doxycycline is the 1st choice drug to treat it early, and it's often used in the early disseminated stage. I think 400mg/day is fairly typical. 200mg/day would be too low. I don't know that Doxy alone will cure you, but then I'm not a LLMD.
Avatar n tn Well, I have a long history, so I'll try to make it brief and to the point. My tingling began back in 1988 in my hands and feet. I saw a neurologist who performed many tests which included MRI of brain and cervical and thorasic spine, evoked potentials, EEG - all of which were negative. I also would have on and off an incredible pain in my head - more on my scalp and if you would rub it, it would worsen. He said they were tension headaches - but I can tell you they weren't.
Avatar f tn Or be evident during a blood pressure test? I did a candida test (home test) and one long line went straight to the bottom, within five minutes it was becoming less visible, and now, ten minutes later it's pretty much gone. I know Lyme can sometimes increase allergic reactions to stimuli. I'm very confused right now. I've tried to attribute this all to Hyperventilation -- I suffer from anxiety anyway and imagine I have exacerbated the symptoms with stress.
Avatar n tn He did not rule out anxiety driven problem, since I am an anxious person under pressure now, but thought my symptoms were too specific to the facial nerves to be only psychological. He referred me back to the neurologist. During this entire time, the symptoms come and go, though they have been more frequent the last few days. I have an appointment with my rheumotologist and neurologist late next week.
Avatar f tn Tried to reply to all but that didn't work so will reply in order of receipt. "Tstorm", how bout a hurricane? Cirrhosis at 65? There's a chance that could happen, but not a good one. Chances are better not. Yes, I will still deal with non traditional techniques. A liver transplant? Have not decided on that one at this point in time. My eggs are not all in one basket, Dr. Allopathic's basket is just empty of my eggs.
Avatar n tn More recently now I do not seem to have the same pressure when urinating and I can't seem to squeeze everything out like I used to. No matter how much I shake afterwards, a little more urine always seems to drip into my pants afterwards. I saw a urologist very early on in the picture; he performed a cystoscopy and prostatic massage which did not show any abnormal results, however it was likely that when he performed this it was in between times where I was sufferring symptoms.
Avatar n tn ) I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn I got so addicted to the rockstar that I have not been able to lay off long enough to see if it is the culprit! Anybody else live in a big dirty city? or drink Rockstar or other energy drink?
