Avatar m tn Has anyone else experienced Monitor Side Effects? The following day after wearing the Monitor I experienced dizzy spells and light headedness.

Avatar n tn Definitely bring it to the attention of your physician. As chemo treatments go on, risks for infection and other side effects rise. So, I disagree with japdip. The effects of the chemo can be cumulative creating symptoms later in the process that weren't present in the beginning.
Avatar f tn Please tell me you found out what causes this? If not, have you gotten well? I am going through a terrible time with this with no help from the doctor, but mine has advanced from what you have posted.
Avatar f tn The only thing I can say is when you get your chemo, drink lots of water and flush it out of your system as quick as you can. The Neulasta shot causes these painful side effects but you need your blood levels to stay high so... it's worth it, really. When I was hurting at least I knew it was working. I wish you all the best!
Avatar m tn Hello, It is true that accutane has plenty of side effects. It may cause cheilitis and dry lips but thinning of skin and hair loss are less frequent side effects.

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!!
1124218 tn?1259809405 considered the Botox treatments, provided I can work out something on the payment for them, as I have heard they run around 300.00 each, and must be repeated pretty often. Also, the side effects listed are scary, are you currently taking them, and if so, have you experienced any side effects? This must be very hard for you, in the carrying out of your practice?
