Avatar m tn One night I had a bad headache from eye strain (I am a chronic gamer) and I took some Ibuprofen, a medication that I took very often before the welts started. Within an hour or so I had a dramatic reaction to the medicine. I got these giant welts on my face and body, the likes of which I had never seen before. It scared me because I thought my throat could potentially close. Luckily my throat never felt like it was swelling at all.

Avatar n tn Well good thing I never gave up and to top it off the IUI worked not even IVF. I am a believer in God and science working together. My advise to you. Don't give up I am living proof of having faith.
Avatar n tn I did some research and Metformin is indeed used for weightloss and it is recommended that the pills be taken about 10-15 minutes before eating. It reduces hunger pains as well as makes you feel full due to the expansion of the tablets. I take 2000 mgs. a day. I have lost 44 pounds and counting. I have also changed some of my eating habits, but unfortunately, I am having a hard time giving up the carbohydrates.
Avatar n tn I spoke with them a few times and they felt that my sinuses needed to be taken care of and the meds for anxiety- well, I quit them and felt a bit better. Then I was off to ENT. My first thought was- what the heck is going on- I have this bad sinus infection , on meds for that for 20 days- it never goes away- was told to take celexa- (which I took at the same time as the anti-biotic)- and then started having attacks, tingling in my fingers and toes, and then I am being sent to a pyschologists?
Avatar n tn I was told I had soft tissue injury and acid reflux which I thought was absolutely a joke! That was by an ENT who had taken a CT scan only on the left side and for that purpose only and although nothing showed that indicated muscle problems but did show a swallen lymphnode it was his opinion that I had acid reflux and suggested I by over the counter acid reflux meds and I would be fine I assured him he would not be seeing me again!!
Avatar n tn But now I am 8 wks pregnant and have had what I thought was a UTI for 2 goin on 3 wks now!! I am going crazy!! I have taken every antibiotic known to man that is safe for a pregnant lady and no relief. i know that i was diagnosed w/ cytolytic vaginosis awhile back so I read up on it, but w/ being prgenant I dont know if it is the right diagnosis. I am going pregnancy crazy trying to figure this out. It is effecting my life and I can't do my job as well. Again, thank you all..
Avatar n tn The feeling was not only uncomfortable it was down right scary I thought something was pulling like a vacuum inside my ears and they would pop.
Avatar n tn The doctor said the carotid artery was inflamed and prescribed a nine day course of prednisone. I started the prednisone tonight along with 3 advil and the pain is already much, much better. My doctor told me that there is an 80% chance this treatment will resolve the problem, but there was a 20% chance that it might return and I might need another course of prednisone. The little bit of reading I have done so far seem to point to a viral cause.
Avatar n tn Hi - I have been experiencing similar symptoms for weeks. For about 6 week, my upper lip has been dry, slightly wrinkled, as well as cracking and peeling. So frustrating because no amount or type of lip balm seemed to help (vaseline lip therapy, body shop lip salve, etc etc). Additionally, the skin above my upper lip became dry, red and irritated. About 2-3 weeks after that, I started experiencing swollen eyelids as well as dry, wrinkled, red, itchy patches above and below my eyes.
459853 tn?1283144114 I started the Plaquenil back in March of 08 and stopped in October 08. I am on Prednisone 10mg per day for now and it does seem to be helping. I have been hurting for the last 2 days though but I think it's because of the weather here... It's hot, humid and raining. It's been close to 80 here!!! Can you believe!! Of the symptoms listed on the site, I had 4 plus the fatigue, hair loss and Raynaud's. My main ache spots are my shoulders, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and toes.
Avatar m tn Neither prednisone nor ibuprofen does much of anything when taken alone but taken together, even in a small dose, they were incredibly effective. Unable to explain what’s happening, no one will prescribe continued use of this combination even though I had all positive results and no apparent negative impacts. No one helps me. They just keep looking at it as some kind of neurological or ophthalmologic problem even though they never find a cause on that diagnostic track.
Avatar n tn In a person who has asthma, an allergic reaction to a medication can trigger an asthma attack. The most likely group of medications to cause this problem is non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin and ibuprofen. In a person who does not have asthma, an allergic reaction to a medication will not cause that person to develop asthma.
Avatar n tn Since introducing the blood type diet I'm experiencing less stiffness and body pain and have been able to cut back on Ibuprofen. This diet is based on the idea that our blood heritage indicates which foods are beneficial (support the body's natural healing mechanisms) and those which are destructive to a particular blood type. All further complicated by the possibility that premenopause is causing fog and other hormonal imbalances.
Avatar n tn also, see if she can get you on Zithromax for the pneumonia. It's super strong, and if it's taken as directed, EXACTLY, it will kill the pneumonia and any other bacteria you have lurking in your body. Bacteria infections can cause allllll that pain also!
6815927 tn?1395515025 I also have pain from my gut from complications of Chrohn's disease and I am completely unsure of how to deal with that--1st line, and perhaps only, treatment for GI pain from inflammatory bowel disease is narcotics--helps deaden the pain and slows the motility of the intestines.
Avatar n tn sent me to ear, nose, throat specialist, who gave me all the nasal antihistamines and steroid sprays which didn't help. Put me on Prednisone (steroid) for 12 days and finally got better, although not perfect. The fatigue, balance problems, pressure in head is gone, although I still get pain in right back of head when sleeping and still get stopped up. Been using saline irrigation, also. They are sending me for allergy tests.
211940 tn?1267884866 I wore the brace and it helped a little. I had the nerve test (which was the most horrid test I have ever taken) and my left arm showed more nerve damage then the right. The left hand in my profession is the holding hand, it never does the cutting, blow dring, manicuring, pedicuring it just holds what ever I am working on. But I have complete mobility in the left shoulder, elbow, hand, except for the thumb. In the thumb I had such a pain.
Avatar n tn This sensation can be caused by nerve damage, diabetes, problems with circulation, and hypothyroidism among others. Check with the doctor and get some blood work done to check these things out.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar n tn I have not taken any medication for at least a month, and haven't taken any vitamins or pills for over a month or so, so can't it on that. I will keep reading for remedies.
Avatar f tn It is 4 a.m. and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar n tn and told me to take this Ibuprofen 2x a day. i haven't taken it that often, really just as needed. i just bought a bunch of vitamins, and I think i will go back and buy some magnesium and be diligent with taking calcium pills as an earlier writer recommends. I would recommend the yoga to everyone, most good teachers will work a particular part of the body if you request it, (by the way, its "Hatha yoga", this involves deep breathing with movement).
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
Avatar n tn It's your life and if you're paying someone to help you put the pieces back together, dangit they had better bring glue and instructions. And maybe you just suffer from chronis sinus infections. I suffer from frequent constipation and there's no underlying cause. I'm just not regular! (: I hope that even if what you're experiencing is not anxiety, you find out what it is. You deserve to be happy and worry/pain-free!
544292 tn?1268886268 Come on in and enjoy the conversation and make yourself comfy. This is the place to be to get off and stay off Tramadol!
Avatar m tn ) I actually have taken some these past couple weeks together with prilosec because I figured ANYTHING was worth getting the painkillers out of my system. But my stomach is in knots already. It does this sharp contracting thing, especially throughout the night so I have to stop pushing it. Today is day 2 of my anti-inflammatory diet and the steroids (hate those!). We'll see how it goes.
