Avatar f tn My husband has had Parkinson's for about 10 years and recently took 5 days of 20mg. Prednisone tables twice a day for a pinched nerve. It completely removed his symptoms; he was tremor ... [More] free, clear thinking, strong voice, no walking problems, no slowness - NOTHING! It was like a miracle.

About 2 weeks ago I while carring a heavy box,I heard a loud pop and felt great pain in my left calf that put me on the ground.

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn Yes it is a teens disease, but I got it, and I am 34 married. I had this strange muscle cramps for 8 months finally they prescribed prednisone therapy it worked. No one believed me the aches I had they were terrible. Good Luck Be Well! For the past 8 months I have been having episodes of extreme muscle fatigue in my upper thighs and arms. These events start out as a felling of mild fatigue as if I had been exercising strenously. The feeling is identical in both arms and legs.
Avatar n tn Some thoughts are lyme testing and other infectuous diseases associated with ticks as well as west nile that effects muscles, emg testing to look at muscle response, rheumatic screening for illnesses such as lupus and thyroid testing. Blood work to look for low magnesium or b12 are nicer possibilities. I am also seeing an endocrinologist this week as it may provide me with more advanced testing than the base screening that initial blood work provides.
Avatar n tn sometimes an antibiotic or even more simply, tylenol or advil for the pain. Another possible cause of your pain could be muscle strain. I know as an asthmatic, when I get all huffy and puffy....I really strain my chest and ribs. After my attack has cleared, I sometimes feel like I was punched in the chest for working it so hard. This usually subsides in a day or so after my muscles have relaxed and "healed". Suffice to say, and as I ALWAYS to your doctor.
Avatar f tn Ev, Since muscle is what uses up glucose I would focus on building new muscle more than any cardio excersise because that only burns energy while you do it whereas muscle will burn glucose much more gradual and a lot longer over time. It must be very challenging when your Dr. tells you not to lift more than 10lbs because of varcises. But even light weight training if done daily will increase muscle mass and if combined with a low glycemic diet will definately bring down blood sugar.
Avatar n tn it may be worthwhile to find those articles (they are medical/physician articles not peoples opinions) and print them out for your dr. get tested for that. fentanyl shrinks some peoples adrenal glands. there is treatment for that and that is what i am going to push. this is taking way too long and i have been on vitamins for months now and not a change.
773755 tn?1328123377 D went about twelve shuffly paces - carefully - felt great and hopeful. had to stop at 15 meters otherwise i'd still be sore now. as it turns out i did strain a muscle in my right butt cheek but it has recovered. maybe i will run again. i dont need to run flat out, i will be happy with a shuffle. funny how we settle for less. i think it's possible now. just have to build up gradually - and keep the spare tyre off!
Avatar f tn If you have the money, you might ask for a referral to an orthopedic specialist. There just might be a way of surgically correcting the area causing the most pain. Since he's such a young dog, his chances of responding to surgery and rehab are certainly better than in a senior dog. Treating spinal pain in humans is just as difficult as treating it in animals. It's expensive and much of the treatment is trial and error.
Avatar m tn Anyway as you may know I've been suffering with a lot of strange symptoms for the past 5 months and I was initially tested for Lyme and was negative except for the 41 igg band on a standard western blot.

Avatar f tn He is currently on prednisone and theophylline. For the past couple of weeks, his belly has been very distended and hard to the touch. This is making his breathing more difficult. He is slightly overweight, so I have cut down his food intake. He drinks about the same amount of water that he always did, even thought the prednisone is supposed to increase his thirst. He is releiving himself regularly. His last checkup last month the vet told me that he had a good heart.
5082295 tn?1371254511 There are lots of side effects. Muscle relaxants are contraidicated for piriformis strain except or the first day or two. They cause loss of muscle tone.

Avatar n tn This has bothered me for about eighteen years and just keeps getting worse. Being a stand up comedian, this really hampers my profession. On December 8,2005 I was doing a show in Virgina and saw a local doctor there. She gave me Tussionex and within the hour of the first dosage the drainage stopped. The next week was wonderful as I was even able to cough up stuff for the first time in a long time. I have tried the 8 mg dosage of Chlorpheniramine but it doesn't work.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.

522415 tn?1242941355 I do not know how it is for others, but for me I have never been able to get a Docter to give me more meds for my pain. I only take my cymbolta and busepar and balacet.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with a Buffalo Hump on my back below my neck, but above my shoulder blades - usual place. I'm not on HIV meds and I don't take prednisone but I have been taking Advair for Asthma 2xday for about 8 years. I'm also about 90lbs overweight. I am a CPA and sit at the computer all day, so I'm sure my posture at the comp is only agravating the situation. Ques: 1 - Can the Advair be causing the hump?

193953 tn?1272078626 The pain killers he keeps calling in, isn't working! They gave me Prednisone! Miracle drug for me. Spine surgeon doesn't believe in it. Hm... Whats up with not listening to the patient as to what helps and just dictating care? PREDNISONE takes 4-5 day debilitation down to 1-2! That tells me right there, the pain is from inflammation not muscle strain. I go to Pain Management on Friday, I see spine surgeon on Thursday and I go to my primary today. I have a big week!
