512560 tn?1222563727 Recently, I have been feeling slight pain in my right kidney area, though before I'd have described it as 'my top rib' and the pain comes as I sneeze, cough, pass a constipated stool, walk too far etc, but now, today, I have been asked to call in for blood tests, and I find the abbreviations slightly alarming considering all else what clear, so I wonder if you could help shed some light please? ::Clinical Details:: Stage III CRF ::Chemical Pathology:: LFT [and I think] UTE.
Avatar f tn My throat is scratchy which makes me cough. Started to take a pill called benzonite to stop the cough and it is helping a lot. Been to allergists and am not allergic to anything. Feels like I am on the verge of having a stroke or maybe a heart attack. Todays 4th visit this month for same problem he tells me about this carotidynia thing .I told him that I had a carotid artery test already and it came back ok. Can your still have this carotidymia when your carotid test came back normal.
Avatar n tn At the moment he still gets breathless after walking up a few stairs and I'm not happy with this situation. He also has a persistent cough which may be linked to his medication. He does have some water retention in lower legs. At a recent appointment we were told that the ECG showed his irregular heart rhythm is now more controlled with the medication. Below I've listed 4 questions. Thanks in advance for the advice.
Avatar m tn He had heart surgury almost 1 1/2 years ago and was feeling good, no pflegm. He is on medication for the heart ie. simvastatin, carvedilol, enalapril and digoxin and we are aware of the slight cough as a result of the medication, therefore, we can deduce that the pflegm build up is from dentures because when he takes them out, he feels much better. Have you heard of this before and what can we do about this situation.
Avatar n tn He did an x ray of my lungs and gave me prednisone tapered pack,antibiotics and codiene cough syrup. I also went before this i forget exactly when (march of 2006) he did send me for brain mri which was fine. I took it upon myself to go to a back dr. who did not do any x rays and wanted to do p.t. immediately. So i said no and was planning to find another back dr. About a month later i ended up in e.r. due to what my husband was thinking was a heart attack.

It has been 5 months now and I have had good and bad days. But two week ago I had a spell while traveling where I was not feeling good and stopped to check blood pressure and it was 187/114 pulse 110. I was fighting nausea and quivering of the stomach. Of course I freaked out and went to the emergency room. BP was still high at 179/105.

Avatar n tn I have had cartarrh and phlegm for a good number of years and have an irritating cough when the phlegm builds up too much. The cough starts with a tickle and then It sounds like I smoke 60 a day! The cough rattles around and is keeping me awake more than it used to. I have tried Beconase spray, an inhaler which didn't work very well and catarrh remedies but nothing seems to work. I also suffer from Rhinitis and sore throat during the Spring/Summer months.

11849443 tn?1441306441 For me, Metoprolol, a former front line blood pressure med works very well for me, and Simvastatin controls my elevated cholesterol to about 135 now. Both of these drugs have become extremely affordable; literally pennies per dose. My primary care physician thinks that nearly everyone should be on both medications as a prophylaxis against each. Which begs a question: Is Metoprolol an "over the counter" medication in Europe?
Avatar f tn A few days ago I had five large stents put into my LAD and I get a nasty pinching sensation when I inhale. It feels a bit like a nasty stitch but deeper. If I cough it also gives a shooting pain. The pains shoot up from what feels like my left lung to my left shoulder and neck. Paracetamol rids the discomfort and I've been told to drink lots of water and the stents should settle down after a few days. Time will tell.
Avatar f tn Also, it seems like it was easier for me to get cough/cold (which was on-going for like a-month). Taking medicine for my cough then may actually accelerate the ALT/AST in the liver too. After my ALT/AST back to normal range, all those bad symptoms are gone. Thanks goodness.
Avatar f tn How many sufferers are taking statins (Simvastatin)? How many sufferers are taking Atenolol (Tenormin)? How many sufferers also get regular kidney infections?
Avatar m tn In the end he decided to send me for more scans and told me it was probably migrains and absents which i doubt very much. My local gp put me on simvastatin and my fuzzy head problem as improved and im having fewer episodes/brainfog. Im doing ok driving at the moment but feel a bit stressed if driving on roads i dont usually drive on. Going to get a satnav to help me with this.
