Avatar f tn hi, i just had my 2nd stroke about a month ago, i was lucky because i didn't get any side effects such as paralysis, memory loss etc. I underwent the coiling procedure. now 2 weeks later i have started losing all my hair on the left side of my head (same side as the bleeding). Why did this happen? and will he hair grow back? im very worried because i will have to go back for another surgery to correct another stroke i had apparently had last oct in the right side of my brain.
Avatar f tn Sounds to me like the exact symtoms of someone with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatique Symtom. Must doctors "poo poo" this but it is real. Do some searching on the web. Find someone who deals specializes with Fibromyalgia and Chroic Fatique Syndrone. Please email me if this cures you as I would love to know. My life came crashing down two years ago. In bed 16 to 18 hours a day. No one can figure it out so I am in sort of the same boat as you.
Avatar f tn and has it been successful for them.?(with less side effects) I have experienced memory issues, loss of balance, depression and a loss in confidence. My doctors have been constrained in prescribing, because of Warfarin and barbituates for a controlled epilepsy condition.
Avatar n tn Cephalosporins, diflusinal, NSAIDS, penicillins and salicylates may have varoius effects that make bleeding more likely when used together with warfarin. The following drugs may reduce the levels and effects of warfarin: alcohol, aminoglutethimide, barbiturates, carbamazepine, chlolestyramine, oral contraceptives, dicloxacillin, estrogens, etretinate, glutethimide, griseofulvin, nafcillin, rifampin, spironolactone, sucralfate, thiazide diuretics, trazadone, vitamin C (at high doses) vitamin K.
237039 tn?1264261657 Researchers have found that Nattokinase is four times more potent than plasmin, works more effectively than warfarin drugs, and doesn’t produce any side effects. On the other hand, the side effects associated with warfarin (such as Coumadin®) blood thinners are numerous and well documented.
Avatar n tn My former neurologist never thought Topomax would be a fit for me with the type of job I had, but I recently relocated to a new state and was referred to a new Neurologist. This MD is not as fussy about the fit between lifestyle and drug side effects and put me on Topomax to deal with Migraines about 2 weeks ago. I am not up to full dosage yet (only at 50 mg & he is hoping to ramp me up to 200mg per day) & I am done with this junk.
9088869 tn?1401643539 I changed from 4mg on my Warfarin since Methimazole was causing it to lower it's effects to 6mg every other day to get my INR up where it should be and now with this new drug I don't know where it's going to be.
Avatar n tn I don't want to take more then 3 Advil a day bcuz of the side effects of that, so I just deal with my headaches most of the time. The weirdest symptom I have is blurry vision that typically is present upon waking up in the morning & lasts for a few hours, then magically disappears. I've associated this blurry vision with lying down. The worst 2 cases of blurry visions (double vision occurred too at these times), was right after my MRI's. It took about 1.
Avatar n tn My doc put me on Yasmin two days ago as she said this pill has a low number of side effects...??!! After reading this tho you have all completely put me off taking it. And I realise everyone is different but after googling "Yasmin" it sure seems like there is a lot of out people having similar problems. Thanks guys for the info I would probably have kept taking it if I hadn't come across this.
Avatar n tn Pins and needles Visual disturbances, such as flashes of light to full vision loss (much like MS- Optic Neuritis can occur) Co-ordination Problems Speech problems (slurring, mixing up words) Muscle cramps or pain in muscles Dizziness (vertigo) Memory Loss Livedo Reticulitis (blotchy web like pattern on skin) Epilepsy Low platelet count in blood Blood clots in the body ANYWHERE Miscarraiges in women The treatment for APS varie
Avatar n tn does any one suffer from any side effects such as sweating on the side of the face and above the eye also eye twitches!
Avatar n tn Three blood clots and two aneurysms formed in my artery and 10 days after the accident a blood clot broke off and traveled to my brain and I had a stroke. I have memory loss. My life is like a bunch of puzzle peices that I can;t put back together. I have severe back pain from the compression fractures in my back bone and pain and stiffening of my neck from the fracture of my c-2.
612551 tn?1450025775 The prescription can not be refilled without his approval. I'll give it that much of a try unless I get dangerous side-effects. I used to be a "trough guy" maybe a "cowboy" when it came to the subject of the mind... I didn't believe in depression/anxiety. However over many years of marriage to a woman who developed serious problems in those area and a son who also did...
Avatar n tn I have been getting this pain in the right side of my neck. I am on warfarin lifelong following a dvt already so this is worrying. My mother had a major stroke age 64 last year and her father had a blocked carotid artery that gave him a stroke and was close to being fatal. Her mother had a dvt as well. I am scared! A bit relieved to hear others have been having the same for a while with no severe consequences.
Avatar n tn I only ask this because, when I originally started coming off of an SSRI, I was having unwanted side effects and I went back to the doctor and suggested that maybe I go much slower. It really minimized the effects and other than a headache and a little naseau, it worked for me. In my opinion, some GP docs, wean us off of these medications a little too fast...have you tried going back to talking to him/her?
Avatar n tn Its the same as patients suffering discomfort all over the world from medication side effects, wondering why they have this pain, that twinge, this itch. Medicine companies spend a fortune on research and keep saying the side effects are next to none. I believe a few years ago the FDA removed a statin drug from the market, yet the company still claimed it was perfectly safe. We are all under the umbrella of uncertainty and with two different stories, someone has to be telling us lies.
233616 tn?1312790796 I think jmjm elaborated on this once, but my memory is not always accurate. In any event, at that viral load your stage could go up at one stage per year or more, so from what I understand the higher the VL the more imperative to treat EVEN if it only means you knock down the virus while treating for a year, it would give your liver a rest, and a better chance at still being intact enough to treat with better drugs when they do come out.
Avatar n tn Now you don't say what you are driving, but the problems associated with your condition vary from a blackout to a loss of situational awareness. In a blackout, you have a dead man, unless you have it disconnected. But there was a head on in New Jersey (A cornfield meet) in 1996 due to a lack of situational awareness secondary to a diabetic engineer. Depending on what you are running that loss of situational awareness can end up with a runaway.

Avatar n tn He is a 50 y/o and is recovering nicely. He too experienced paralysis on the right side (arm/leg),loss of speech (aphasia/apraxia), had a feeding tube and picc line. 1. Believe it or not...my husband is NOW ABLE TO WALK short distances WITHOUT a cane and walk long distances with a cane. 2. His speech is coming back beautifully. He sometimes surprises himself with how he is able to hold conversations. Every now and then when speaking the aphasia/apraxia will be noticable.
Avatar n tn I bet I'm not getting in enough nourishment. Does anyone else know if this is a side effect of high protien, exremely low carb diets?
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing the same symptoms for about six months now. I seem to have sometimes dull sometimes sharp pains under my breast bone. I get bloated very easily after eating. I burp a lot of stomach gas. Lots of belching ensues. Sometimes I feel like my esophagus swells up and then I can feel my heart beating in my chest, the fluttering and butterfly feeling. Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and causes anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats.
429155 tn?1205676864 15 got about 2 hrs sleep, those dreams are real strange, every time I get to a good bit the bloody legs wake me up.I am feeling the effects of sleep deprivation now, and am having trouble typing this, very sluggish and the legs are crawling at the moment, also started sneezing real bad, eyes so sore.Shoulders and back also a bit painful..
Avatar f tn I didn't see the Dr to ask him about it because he was on vacation, but I also didn't think to ask him of any possible side effects. When I contact the office, I'll post any remarks he has to say about it.
181575 tn?1250202386 Disadvantages of peginterferon therapy are parenteral administration, frequent side effects (especially flu-like symptoms, depression or irritability, and cytopenias), need for more intensive laboratory monitoring, contraindication in advanced liver disease, and higher cost.
Avatar n tn Up until then, my BP was on the low side...95-110/55-65. Hope you are feeling better. I'm happy to hear your test results are good!! Take care.
190559 tn?1280615967 The biggest side effect of this treatment is Severe Memory Loss. The patient is can also end up more depressed than before the treatment, I have seen people like zombies after this treatment and 9 out of 10 are institutionalised because of this treatment as they cannot function in life again properly. Its is very sad to watch a depressed person who does have problems, go through this treatment ...
