Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar m tn ankles swelling constantly making walking difficult, leg cramps when I wasn't swelling and foamy urine. Now that I have a diagnosis, I am on pill forms of Prednisone every other day and Cyclosporine 2x every day. I have been on the meds for over 1 1/2 weeks and noticed that the foamy urine amount has doubled, my face swells unbelievably, and walking is difficult, as the bottom of my feet and ankles cause me severe pain.

Avatar n tn Prednisone--the magical drug, you need it but you hate the side effects. I too have become impotent because of the use of prednisone. When I was put on 40mg a day for over a month, alternating after ten days to 40/20, 20/10, etc. the effects were devastating. Not only did I lose my ability to achieve an erection, but I lost all feeling. The prednisone makes me urinate every hour. Sugar was checked at 87, and it is OK. Then came the cramps.
Avatar n tn you are holding an ACE of spades and when its time to come off the drug it'll be time to show your cards. I wish you nothing but the best!!
Avatar n tn She was like a guinea pig and now, 8 years after, she is living with side effects that have never gone : hypotension (around 8), fainding every day, unbearable headaches, kidney pyelonephritis every months, and an exhausting fatigue that keep her in her bed sometimes several days, where she can hardly eat alone. Before that, she was so full of life, making car races, flying planes, being a model for photographes, and photographer herself.
Avatar m tn I was put on 30 mg of Prednisone and have decreased the amount of Prednisone gradually and finally gotten completely off prednisone. I did not like the side effects. I have now been off prednisone for a little over 2 weeks and have developed leg cramps and soreness. I wonder if this is from discontinuing the prednisone or could there be another issue?
Avatar n tn I have tried many medications over the last 40 years , but no others work the same . Prednisone has a few Side Effects , but not as many as some others . The last experiment was Lyrica , think "very carefully" about this one , it didn't work with me , the Side Effects are extreme and "won't go away".
Avatar n tn ALL of them cause him to have SEVERE LEG CRAMPS unless he drink ridiculous amounts of water. He has had the traditional rounds of prednisone and antibiotics, but to no avail. When he lays on his left side, he complains that he feels like there is a knot or mass in the area that is painful. He has lost 35 pounds in the last 5 years and loosing muscle mass. We are not convinced that he has Crohn's. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn Paul Muizelaar. Nice Dutch man. I asked a lot of questions as far as what type of side effects were possible, the probability of the side effects, etc. Both my surgeon and my PCP (totally different company) mainly focused on the pain level. They said there really is only a 50% chance the pain would subside. As someone who has pain at the level of 7-10 on a daily basis, I would be okay with a 3-4 pain level. I would be happy with that. Nobody ever talked about numbness.
Avatar n tn Anyways, my doc did put me on Lyrica (very expensive nerve drug) and if i take it three times a day, the numbness goes away mostly, but the pain, pressure, burning, itching, etc is still there, along with the side effects of the pills: dry mouth like crazy and cramps (charlie horse in calf at 3 am). So, it's sixes. But, the numbness for me is the worst part. Ask your doctor for a sample of the stuff; you'll know if it helps you within 2 days.
Avatar n tn I was fortunate enough to be treated with pegylated interferon and ribaviran combination therapy for 48 weeks in 2006/07. I had many side effects during treatment, but I have cleared the virus. The comments from all of you are mirroring my life. I have joint pain in my fingers, wrists, elbows, ankles, knees, hips. I have muscle aches and fatigue from any activity. I have depression. I have lower back pain. I don't sleep well.
Avatar n tn I started calendaring his fevers and they now occur every two weeks- like clockwork. His fevers are occassionally accompnaied by leg pain and stomach pain. During the few days before his fever he is extremely fatigued- tired enough that he falls asleep sitting up. A CBC was done and indicated that he was anemic (his H&H was ~10 and ~30). Two weeks later, his H&H was normal.
Avatar n tn I do take evening primrose oil and wild alaskan salmon oil daily for a supplement.but have not ever heard of side effects that would manifest itself as heat in my leg.
Avatar n tn Likewise, I have had this warm sensation - mainly on the left side of the body (primarily leg) that started 4-5 weeks after having pain on left side of head. I've had MRI and CT but both negative. Three neurologist told me "nothing at this point to worry about - most likely anxiety". I'm now on Fluxotene and Ativan but still have the sensations and periodic left side headaches. No vertigo, nausea, unbalance, etc.
Avatar n tn i have been diagnosed w a bulging disc at L5 s1on the right side. my right leg was hurting sooo bad i thought i would pass out on several occasions after being on "bed rest" for 2 weeks..
Avatar f tn I'm not 100% positive I'm posting this in the correct forum, so if I'm not, please let me know. I am a chronic pain patient who suffers from fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, lupus, DDD. I also have asthma and some irritable bowel. My arthritis is in all of my joints - many of them are bone on bone. Most recently I've been having a lot of trouble with my right hip. Last week, I went for an xray guided steroid injection, which went well.
Avatar m tn I was on prednisone for years for polymyalgia rheumatica. No known side effects. I wonder if it would help with the muscle spasms I am 78 yrs old and aside from the above, in excellent health. Suggestions welcome! Thank you Suggestions welcome!
460830 tn?1347222906 He told me to keep taking the Bactrim, and prescribed Urogesic Blue. Also, for the last 2 nights, every time I lie down, I get terrible leg cramps, and have to get up and walk around for quite awhile before it eases...Just wondering what all this means, and if I'm doing something wrong now? I know not drinking enough water was a mistake, but I've corrected that now.
Avatar f tn The side effects of Tacrolimus are similar to those of Cyclosporine. * Headaches * Diarrhea * Seizures * High blood pressure * Tremors * Rash * Mental status changes * Decreased magnesium * Insomnia * High blood sugar * Anemia * High potassium * Nausea/vomiting * Decreased kidney function * Decreased appetite * Leg cramps * Hair Loss Keep in mind Immunosuppressant drugs prescribed and dosages are unique for each individual. So what may apply to one person won't necessary apply to another.
Avatar f tn They want me to take vitamin D and Calcium but after I started I began getting leg and hand/ arm cramps again... Now I am confused about my care... I also work with high risk patients who have respiratory infections (i.e tb, H1N1, pna) and I have been told that I can work with them and that I am not at risk, but others have told me DO NOT because I am susceptible to getting whatever they have. Now who do I believe.
Avatar n tn I hope that you can find a lower dose of Advair that will provide an equal measure of relief, with fewer side effects. The preceding is based on the premise that your symptoms are side effects of corticosteroids. That you are most sensitive to the actions of this type of drug. Be sure to inform your doctor of all of the symptoms listed in your post, there could actually be another cause for one or more of them.
1142230 tn?1268679266 I could barely walk, could not drive, use my feet, hold anything, carry, lie anything but flat, take care of bathroom issues, pick up things, type, write, use the phone, do my hair, shower, etc., etc. Had all kinds of leg and foot cramps. Itchy feelings in my shoulders, upper back and upper chest area and a horrible feeling of discomfort in my upper chest area from my bra and clothing.

Avatar n tn Go to your family doc and tell them you would like a quick 7 day Pred pack starting in really high doses until you are down to one-a-day. They have a lot of side-effects but is truly the only thing I have found that helps. What is confusing to me is you said it is easier to sit. Sitting is the devil to me. The best to me than anything. STOOP. If you are like me, you will drop from a 10 to a 1 in a second. I have to go but will check back with you in the morning.
222135 tn?1236491821 What a disaster! Spasms came fast and furious, plus the side effects!!! Mademe really nervous (not by nature a nrevous person), and anything I ate (even toast) made me sick as a dog. Tried to ride out the side effects and give it a while to work, but after a week on the floor most of the time from leg/ other spasms, I couldn't do it anymore. PCP put me back on baclofen.
Avatar f tn muscle spasms all over my body that are very excruciating as well as leg cramps...high blood pressure ( on lisinopril 25mg and Hydrocholordize 25 mg) ...lower back pain...which gets worse when I stand or walk too long...pain in middle of my shoulders...chronic cough... Pleursy...bloody stools...very blurry vision...headaches...chills...depression....extreme itching scalp...nauceousness to the point of heaving....stomach pains...vomiting...I have also had a hysterectomy..
4798753 tn?1359325903 My problem since Friday has been believe it or not..............stomach cramps and leg cramps. Hoping it goes away also. Hang in there tokes!!! Is the moniker a subluminal message of your extra curricular activities? :) Or is that your real name?
1313843 tn?1275025037 IV steroids, like prednisone, can have some strange side effects, so keep that in mind. You may feel very hungry, extremely aggitating, unable to sleep, and gain weight. Its all normal but be sure and ask your doctor (or even post a question here) if something doesn't seem quite right. hopefully this will help and decrease the inflammation ofyour lesions. There is so much to learn about MS - do yourself a huge favor and only take in a little bit at a time so you aren't overwhelmed.
