Avatar m tn Has anyone else experienced Monitor Side Effects? The following day after wearing the Monitor I experienced dizzy spells and light headedness. This was not suggestiveness as I never expected this reaction nor had anyone mentioned such a thing. And this surprise had nothing at all to do with why I was monitoring my heart. It persisted for two weeks while I was monitoring in the given manner. I took the Monitor off after that time and the dizzyness gradually went away.
Avatar f tn Anybody else with side effects from topamax like this? Anybody else think it's not really working for their migraines? Imitrex doesn't seem to help him - as long as he sits up, it goes away at about the same time as sitting up with the Imitrex. Gah. If it was me, this would be a lot easier.
Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
29837 tn?1414538248 I ask this because overall, I don't feel much, but this morning I woke up with a headache, which is very rare for me. I believe one of the side effects can be a headache. I also notice my hands slightly shaking since starting Harvoni. Anyone experience this? Just curious as to what others are going through. I know this is a new type of treatment, but it would be helpful and put people at ease if others are experiencing the same effects.
Avatar f tn The smallest dose of synthroid is 25 mcg and many people split that in 1/2 for a beginning dose of 12.5. The main side effects of levo or synthroid are those of hyperthyoidism, which results from over medication, unless you are sensitive to the fillers/binders. It takes between 4-6 weeks for a med change to take effect, so what you're feeling after only 2 weeks is most likely not the synthroid, unless you are especially sensitive to meds. What are the ranges for the Free T4?
Avatar n tn I experienced the side effects I was told could happen, worse cramps and heavier bleeding. I am fine with these because my choice for birth control is very limited because I get blood clots and cannot take the pill. However, I am wondering if anyone has experienced a decrease in thier sex drive becasue of it. I am only 29 years old, married to a very wonderful and attractive man, but honestly I could care less about sex.
Avatar n tn Have already tried Doxepam, Zonalone Creme, Elavil,Dilantin, Tegretol, Tylenol/Codeine, Neurontin, Ultram,Percoset,Darvoset, etc, with really bad side effects and zero relief. Wondering what alternatives to prescription meds can be used for pain relief from small fiber sensory neuropathies? this began from a drug reaction but another MD feels it could be a combination of the drug reaction and viral syndrome together. These have not abated for 1/1/2 years. MRI's and 100 rule out tests normal.
Avatar f tn He is showing signs of irritability. What are the residual side effects of para embolic stroke and what can I do to help his condition and is it likely to improve? He seems to be very serious and doesn't like a lot of social activity. It is like treading on eggshells and I think I am getting more anxious.
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn Valium has a bad rap, but it really doesn't deserve it. Of course it is a physician prescribed drug. It has fewer side effects that most all of the alternatives. See if the problems go away. Use a very low dose of valium and take it with grapefruit juice to increase the half life. Don't drive. Log the periods of weakness. You need to get a glucose tolerance test. Abnormal blood sugar levels cause the body to reduce the glucose level by an alternative means, which uses fluid.
Avatar n tn Maybe cut down to two beers, for a week, and then 1 beer, and then stop? Is cutting down slowly a good way to avoid side effects? Is my body getting used to not having alcohol? My stomach now feels better, less gas, and my apetite has increased. I'm not going to have any psychological withdrawls, I feel good without drinking, I'm just worried about the physical withdrawls.
Avatar n tn I have had a few time periods where I seem to suffer more than my usual balance problems, and fall down almost daily. Are these still effects from that mysterious stroke? Signs of another coming up?
Avatar f tn It's nearly 2 months now. Her left side feels soft and flabby while her right side is strong and kicking. Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar m tn Both anti-migraine medicines i tried at the time had negative side effects (slurring of speech, incoherent thoughts and feelings, vivid nightmares). I never determined that actual cause of the migraines, though stress was often suggested. As for my current problems. On August 19th at just after midnight, my lower right lip went numb, as though i had just received Novocaine. 30 minutes later, my whole lower lip was numb and within an hour it spread to my whole mouth, excluding my tongue.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if repeated ankle swelling on the affected side is normal after a stroke? My recovery has gone really well, all things considered, but my left ankle almost always swells daily and then goes down overnight - looks great in a.m. I still have numbness/neuropathy in it, too, though improved. Are these related and what can I do? Has anyone had success in getting all feeling back in toes, bottom of foot, etc? I'll try almost anything!!

Avatar n tn This may help you, it is a link to a web page that will tell you about pills, their uses and side effects, there is a lot of good information. When you get there, type in the name of the pill that you wish to investigate in the box provided and hit return.
Avatar n tn I sure hope u have found some relief for the problem. The side effects of your aneurysm surgery r in part why I , so far, have not agreed to have surgery . Just hoping they won't burst ( so far in 15 yrs they r intact ). God bless u.
Avatar f tn Back in October my diabetic mother had a stroke on the right side of her brain. I want to know what exactly caused her to pass away. Was it the fact that she couldn't eat, being that she was a diabetic, eventually causing her to go into a coma and die or does the stroke itself do something like hinder her from breathing . Was there something that made her stop breathing because of the stroke itself? She was getting something through an IV but I'm sure there wasn't much nourishment there.
Avatar f tn I pretty much only take a bunch of ibuprofen and tylenol (650 mg). I can't tolerate most meds cause of severe side effects. Icepack on forehead and/or back of head helps, too. I live in my sunglasses and stay in bed a lot unfortunately. Sometimes I take Butalbital which helps little bit but has caffeine and makes my anxiety worse. Xanax helps some,so that may be an indicator that stress/anxiety could be causing my migraines. Yes, I have anxiety too. UGH.
Avatar n tn Hi, Since she is on medications to help her sleep, she could be expriencing side effects from these.A sedative-hypnotic is a substance that depresses the central nervous system (CNS, resulting in calmness, relaxation, reduction of anxiety, sleepiness, and slowed breathing, and possibly - at higher doses - slurred speech, staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain reflexes. After taking sedatives if the sleep has been inadequate the the person can experience dizzy spells.
Avatar n tn my father was hit by a stroke on left side of the brain, leaving his right side of the body fully paralysed.its been almost 21 months now, and he is still in a process of recovery. the doctors practicing an aelopathic medicine had very little options and suggestions for my dad, but the Indian Ayurvedic medicine magically helped in speedy recovery. he is supposed to take medicines constituting Gold as one of the major ingredients.
Avatar n tn what diagnostic test are there to dtect the reason of muscle spasms and what treatment with minimum side effects are available.
Avatar n tn Both hypertension and cholesterol problems can lead to clogging of the small arteries in the brain (including the ones supplying the brainstem) which may result in a stroke. Small vessel disease due to these factors constitue one of the major causes of brainstem strokes. Typically, blood clots from the heart that travel up to the brain do not make it all the way to the little tiny blood vessels supplying the brainstem.
Avatar n tn I am 25 years-old and from Michigan, and I was told that I had a stroke from hypertension. But I don't seem to have any after effects. They put me on high blood pressure medication and that is it. Could my doctors be wrong?
