Avatar f tn I could totally accept that I might have done something to my back at some point and that there is some evidence of migraines and glaucoma and I drew the unlucky straw. What no one can explain to me is why everything started at the sametime with me, at the same age my father was when he started his issues and why the pain I have is not only getting worse but does not seem to be totally explained by the MRI. I am at a total loss and completely freaked out.
Avatar m tn My pit has had cataract surgery, complications, regained her sight and then lost it again due to glaucoma which triggered another surgery. Now she is pretty much a mess. As am I! She is also on 4 different eyedrops, none cheap of course. My other pit decided to be helpful and puked in my bed early this morning. Sigh. I don't know what to suggest for the pain,other than the heat you are already using. Possibly tramadol? Sending you and your little one good vibes.
Avatar f tn In essence he had glaucoma with a damaged lens and damaged iris with vitreal disruption into the anterior chamber and vitreal haemorrhage. He was immediately hospitalized and very soon after had surgery which was a left vitrectomy, lens extraction, Molteno tube and scleral graft. He came out of the surgery in extreme pain, much more than was expected.
Avatar m tn well, for certain NSAIDs and GERD don't go together.I have to take tramadol (ultram) for some the the liver pain, (and a back injury) but am keeping it minimal as it raises liver enymes, as do a lot of meds, regardless of what type, put additional tax on the liver. >>>>>>>"My emotions at times were quite raw and my temper at a flash point. I would cry at TV commercials and slam the phone down on people.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar f tn I am 57 years old. This time the new Dr said I have narrow angles and am a glaucoma suspect. Also he noticed that the that area where fluid leaves your eyes is somewhat narrower than average and to watch out for angle closure. He also mentioned my narrow angles were inherited. I have never been told I had narrow angles. I was wondering why other Optometrists over the many years never mentioned this, especially with risks from certain medicines that dilate the eye.
Avatar n tn A quick scout around on Google or Wikipedia will provide vast amounts of information on the beneficial effects of cannabis on the later complications caused by diabetes. It contributes to lowering blood pressure, preventing glaucoma and retinopathy, and easing the pain caused by diabetic neuropathy as well as calming twitches caused by RLS. I'd like to add my knowledge of drugs and diabetes here, as nobody on the internet appears to have bothered thus far.
Avatar f tn This new optometrist noticed I had narrow angles, and gave me paperwork after my exam explaining things, like the possibility of angle closure glaucoma, and now a glaucoma suspect. He is following up next week with the other tests to see what treatment is needed. I am nowt 57. My question is why haven't I ever been told this before? I had an eye exam last year and many years prior. I have been wearing glasses since my early forties. I am farsighted.
Avatar m tn She was on pain killers and Metacam when they were treating her for back problems and the Tramadol has left her constipated. I know that pancreatitis can lead to diabetes and she was given Lactulose laxative for the constipation. She was on that last time when she had this problem and honestly, the Lactulose does not work on her. She was getting 3 doses per day and the vet said we would come home to a mess, but it never happened.
880900 tn?1467273741 Tramadol, Tylenol with codeine (very low dose and only occasionally), and I'm being treated for the arthritis with an antibiotic/cortesone shot once every three weeks for the next year.. Almost 30 years ago, while teaching stage fighting in a Drama class, I got punched in the left eye, and the vision there has deteriorated to almost nothing over the years.
Avatar n tn The same is true for a blocked Eustachian tube in the ear. Infection in the eye, glaucoma, near and far sightedness and sinusitis are the other causes. It could also be secondary to TMJ. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!

903476 tn?1242240637 I have a 10 year old Miniature American Eskimo she's a diabetic on 12 units of insulin twice a day and she has some major eye problems. She was diagnosed with cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic nephropathy or whatever it's called(blind from the diabetes) and the retina has ruptured in one of her eyes. She's on Voltarin eye drops and Tramadol for the pain but recently I've notice her whole eye ball even her eye socket is shrinking it's like half the size it was a month ago.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
1155483 tn?1262436247 as Oxycodone in its various forms. I have thought of asking about Tramadol and Darvon. Would these be suitable for the treatment of chronic pain? Any help would be much appreciated. I see my GP in a week to follow up and was hoping to have an answer/plan when I see him in the office.
Avatar f tn I called the pain dr. and he stated he didn't think it was the tramadol, and still have not heard back from the psychiatrist (2 days now) I did call and yelled at the front desk person telling them that I think it's ridiculous that I can't get a call back, what if I was suicidal? Would they even care enough to call me back? So, I'm still unsure what's going on, I do have a thyroid issue and see an endocrinologist, but never thought of asking them.
264121 tn?1313033056 Her last child was born with a very difficult glaucoma that had to be operated on at Duke at very short intervals, just weeks apart at a time, over and over and over. And I would ask after her because I just felt so badly that they were having to go through that, so hard with such a tiny little one. But her personality changed over the next year and a half or so and she became very umm...
Avatar m tn My Neuro has mildly suggested other pain-blocking meds but I'm not a big fan of those at all and don't want to go down that road, and my primary physician agrees actually. Any thoughts, suggestions? Oh, and Tramadol, I had a real problem trying that also. Thanks for any input.
Cat I developed what I think is restless leg syndrome 3 months after knee replacement surgery. In talking to a friend today, I found that she has had the same issues and she is taking the same antidepressant, citalopram. Has anyone ever heard of this drug causing these symptoms? I have been on citalopram for several years, and have not had many side effects until now. The symptoms are bad enough to interrupt my sleep.
1436598 tn?1332900133 I think I am going to talk to my vet again and get the referral to the specialist to do an initial consult and evaluation and go from there. After years of bulldogs, anesthesia makes me nervous and she hasn't been under since she was 9 months old and had to have her elbow rebuilt. I know APBT's do better as they don't have the breathing problems but I'm a worrywart :-) Thanks again!
Avatar n tn i forgot to add, i too have fibrosis stage 2 grade 2 and i was worried about taking the baclofen because it is metabolized through the liver, so, i asked my gi and he said that my liver is still functioning fine and being that i'm doing tx, my liver is getting a break and is able to metabolize the drug just fine. i also take an AD that is also metabolized through the liver. take whatever you need to take to keep a good quality of life.
Avatar n tn I just started today and Im having a hard time getting through work right now, I took .5 before bed and this morning around 9am I started feeling panic and anxiety so I took .25 and now I feel almost to messed up to be at work. Ive been through this with almost every benzo, should I just give it more time or what?
Avatar n tn Neurontin can help with pain, but beware - if you have glaucoma, or are prone to hit (family history) - do not take it. My father and grandfather both have/had glaucoma and I was not aware of the problem with Neurontin possibly increasing eye pressure until it happened to me. I had been on Neurontin for about three months and went to the opthamologist for my yearly check up and my eye pressures were WAY up.
Avatar n tn Relieve pain of arthritis and rheumatism, reduce interocular pressure and arrest the advance of glaucoma, help relieve migrane headaches, is useful in psychotherapies including those for stress, depression, and anorexia, it reducesspasticity in multiple sclerosis and paralysis, it eases withdrawl from other more harmful drugs such as opiates, alcohol, and tobacco, it relieves menstrual cramps and pains (the U.S.
Avatar n tn Okay, so there really isn't anything else. Tramadol isn't a narcotic, but I'm definitely allergic to it and it really isn't effective on the FMS pain I have. A lot of FMS patients say the same thing about it not really being effective. I so feel for you, because I have FMS pain all the time and I'm unable to even treat the pain at all. Yesterday evening all I could do is try to divert my mind off the pain, but I was still unable to entirely because the pain was especially bad.
Avatar n tn Any time I get inb the light my eye flickers and it's annoying. I'm seeing my eye doctor tomorrow. I'm 62 and have glaucoma. Granted, my vision is 20/20 with no blurring, but I'm taking pain pills andd wearing sun glasses every day. this is day 5 and somethng doesn't feel right.
Avatar n tn Have had 2 seizures prob due to pain med ( tramadol). At mo I am seeing a new specialist in belfast who is great. He keeps doing tests and sees me reg and actually seems to care I am down to 15 mgs of predisolone and no pain in 2 wks so fingers crossed I get a break now and get preg without having this to worry about.
Avatar m tn 2 weeks ago, I was sitting in a cabin by myself alone, had my first 24 hours of no percocet or tramadol in 18 months. 5 days it was really rough, and each day has been both a challenge and a journey. It's not perfect, I am dealing with underlying anxieties, but I no longer feel like a prisoner to pills. I saw get those pills into the hands of your mom or girlfriend. Lean on those who love you.
Avatar f tn So, what dose did everyone here have their success? And what type of diet/eating plan and exercise plan did you do to help it along? I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
