Avatar m tn Dear Member sof this Forum, I am a 43 yrs old guy diagnosed with severed depression and anxiety and believe my depression could also be related to metabolism or fatty liver. My generalist told me I have high blood preassure. Recent diagnoses and tests came as follows: Diffuse fatty infiltration of the liver w/o definite focal liver lesion. No focal lesions in the spleen, gallblader, addrenal glands, pancreas or kidneys. No renal, ureteral or bladder calculi. No hydornefrosis.
Avatar n tn I can wake up and feel normal and have very few PVC's, but later in the day they get worse, and sometimes after exercise. Normal? Any reason for this? 2. During my stress echo, as my HR went above 120, they completely went away during my stress echo, only to return as my HR dropped below 120. Cardiologist said this was normal? 3. Is it possible that a vagus nerve problem can cause PVC's? 4.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 60 year old female, a little chunky, not obese. I have never smoked, never used alcohol, never used any illegal drugs and never abused any prescription drugs. I have low cholesterol (thank you lipitor, zetia and flaxseed oil) #:>) And I have very mild hypertension (cardizem la 120mg daily) easily controlled and with a usual sitting BP of 110/70. (Sometimes, I can go for months without needing any medication for the hypertension.
21064 tn?1309312333 The symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, depression, weight gain, hair loss, muscle and joint pains, and many other chronic and debilitating symptoms. Low thyroid can also be linked to increased levels of LDL -- "bad" cholesterol -- and heart disease. According to Dr. Paul Ladenson, a thyroid specialist at Johns Hopkins University, hypothyroidism may be more common than currently thought.
Avatar m tn I am 5 years post LAD cardiac stent placement. I take Crestor, Zetia, and Metopranol to manage hypertension and, hypercholesterolemia and Clopidogrel to prevent platelet aggregation. Two years ago I developed Menier's disease with hearing loss and tinnitus. Cause "unknown". Six months ago over a two week period I lost my sense of taste. A trial off Crestor = no change. The neurologist recommends that I stop Metopranol and substitute propranolol.
Avatar f tn I am 48 year old female, have had high cholestrol for which I have been on Zetia & Tricor for several years, now is almost normal. I had a bad reaction to the statins- ended up in the hospital with very high liver enzymes. Recently, I have been getting very lightheaded and experiencing pain in my upper arms. My doctor refered me to a cardiologist who performed the heart ultrasound and the holter which came back normal.
Avatar n tn 46 yo female. Multiple Sclerosis -- peripheral neuropathy and fatigue are the worse symptoms HTN High Cholesterol Depression Mild Reactive Airway Ds. Insomnia/sleep issues Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel - right wrist LAB: Free T4 0.75 (LOW) T3 Free, S 2.8 Thyroperoxiod AB 13.4 (HIGH) TSH3 2.276 and 1.793 (two different times) All other pituitary hormones have been normal according to endocrinologist. I was initially told that my thyroid should be treated and was placed on Cytomel.
Avatar f tn Chronic fatigue syndrome is a chronic condition which is characterized by symptoms such as severe persistent fatigue, depression, weakness, muscle pain and lack of energy. The condition is often debilitating and may be difficult to diagnose due to lack of specific tests for the condition. There is no known cause but it appears to be associated with a previous infection in some cases.
Avatar m tn I’m shedding my leg’s hair. And I am 5’ 9” and 195lbs Hispanic/Caucasian. What do I have? Is my depression related to the findings above? Sometimes feel disabled (see below) and call in sick for work. Am I? I have Fear of Public Speaking, “socially challenged”, decreased interests in family, personal, and work related activities, often has difficulties sleeping. Family issues and son’s mild autism are big stressors are also big stressors.
Avatar n tn I'm 34, male, slightly overweight. For the last month, I've had the weird sensation of feeling really faint when I come to a STOP after walking a short distance. While I'm walking, I'm completely fine. I stop (like, waiting for an elevator), and then for at least 30 seconds, I feel like I might faint. I had chest pains two months ago, followed by normal EKGs and a normal heart stress test.
Avatar f tn An echo stress with definity showed abnormal EKG with St-depression consistent with anterior ischemia. MD said he could treat me medically (I can't take statins & was just taken off zetia & NIASPAN after over 7 years, due to generalized pain) or do a cath which he'd prefer. Echo showed abnormal wall movement. Had slight dizziness & s.o.a. But no pain. Report stated "slow", walked 7:14 Stage 1...3 min- HR 101 &bp 140/80 Stage 2...3 min.-HR 122. 160/80 Stage 3....
Avatar f tn If you get diabetes then you are probably overweight drinking sugar and eating processed foods. Veggies and no soda and walk an hour a day. That is the prescription for diabetes. Get skinny. Sorry to be blunt, but that is the truth. If you are thin, sorry to give you the advice but still thin people get diabetes although less likely. If you wonder why your heart and blood pressure gets up and goes. It's tied to the fight or flight response of the brain.
Avatar f tn Tramadol will usually cause a blistering type rash with itching which you do not describe. Zetia, Baclofen, and Xanax are not known to cause itching at all, but the Xanax can cause problems with memory which you do describe. You may also be having a reaction to all the medications mixed together.
Avatar m tn Started Pristique 50mg for depression and it seems to help a little but not enough. I have a high stress job and have not returned to work yet. Worried the stress will cause me to decline further. Again thanks for the help.
Avatar n tn Heres my problems or may be not I also take 90mg armour for hypo thyroid, hydrocodone for back problems, lyrica for back and neck issues, high blood pressure medicine, zetia for high cholestrol, celexa for depression, magnesium for constipation, 1000mcg B-12 tablet, klonopin and ambien for sleep. I feel like a medicine cabinet. I am moody, tired, no energy, and don't have that since of well being feeling I have heard others say.
Avatar m tn Regulators in Australia and Canada have warned since 2005 about the drug's potential to cause hepatitis, pancreatitis and depression. Most of the studies for which Merck and Schering have published results for Zetia covering only 12 weeks, which is not enough time for liver problems to develop in most patients.
Avatar n tn I took a routine physical exam that included a stress test. Though EKG remained normal and I felt fine, at 13 minutes the tech said that she would stop the test because my BP was 258/78. Like an idiot, I said that my HR (158) had leveled off and perhaps I could finish the stage. 30 seconds later, BP was 271/76 (HR 159) and the test was halted. Luckily, I did not have a stroke. Six weeks later, I took a stress echo, both as follow-up on my CAD and to check for a hypertensive response.
Avatar n tn The cardiologist and his research assistant were very complementary of my proactive care which has included Lipitor for 10 years, zetia, flaxseed oil and a few other vitamins. My cholesterol levels are excellent. They felt that this has helped me despite my family history. I am not on a beta blocker because I take allergy injections and beta blockers can not be used with them. I am very concerned that I am unable to stand for more than a moment or two!
Avatar n tn Will I get more breakthrough episodes if I switch and is it worth a try?? 1.Cold hands and feet 2.Depression 3.Nervousness 4.Tremor 5.Insomnia, as well as some other undesireable effects tenorin has that Corgard doesn't or has much less of. Thanks very much..
Avatar n tn stated my salt was maybe too low, maybe anxiety, stress...I recently just had a stress test and echo. All shows nothing. I do take warfarin, flecinide, zetia, permarian, xanax (as needed), mobic. I was told recently to stop taking boniva since last bone desnity show better results, recently had gall bladder removed, before valve had hysterectomy.. was told I had fibromynagia ( not sure of spelling), arthritis, depression, anxiety, had back surgery...etc.
Avatar n tn Everything seems hopeless, life seems ludicrous, there's even a certain amount of anger (I'm not an angry person when I'm myself). As the day wears on, I'm more and more exhausted, and colder and colder. In early evening I crawl fully dressed into bed with the heater going full blast and can still not get warm. I'm so tired I drift in and out, starting at 8:00 or 8:30 PM. I have a low-grade fever of around 100 degrees. During the night I have to use the potty 4-5 times.
Avatar n tn He wound up being put on and taken off off several medications for depression, bi-polar disorder and seizures. He was given Xanax (among other drugs) by a Psychiatrist about two years ago which he became addicted to. He stopped taking the Xanax about a year ago and had (or claimed) withdrawals for a year afterward which caused even more severe anxiety. While on all of these drugs he was drinking heavily.
Avatar n tn I take ambien 10 mg to help sleep and 50 mg zoloft for possible depression. Tylenol or aleve for any pain i may have which is not often. Remember diet and fluid intake is important when on tx.
21064 tn?1309312333 2) Xanax 1mg 2x/day in addition to .5mg as needed for anxiety. 3) Lexapro 5mg 1x/day for anxiety and depression. However, the depression remains. 4) Prevacid 30mg 1x/day for acid reflux and gastritis. The Atenolol works wonders on my PVC's and tachycardia, but it makes me so tired. The Xanax doesn't really help anymore because I've built up a tolerance. The Lexapro has helped to reduce my PVC's and palpitations, but I think it's giving me high blood pressure.
Avatar n tn I am a 40 year old female who had a mild heart attack last august 2006 I had a DES placed at that time.In october 2006 I experienced some chest discomfort between my shoulders and also in the center of my chest. My doctor admitted me and I received another DES in a smaller valve.That valve was only 40% blocked at the time the other stent was placed(August) but not blocked enough for the stent. In october the doctor did not see any other blockages so went ahead and stented the smaller blockage.
220090 tn?1379170787 * Location - the further away from the trial centre, the greater the chance of drop-out due to non-compliance *Depression - considered a major reason for drop-out in both clinical trials and SOC - I know my trial was very stringent on depression and now I begin to see why. I imagine they all are, yes? *Intolerable side effects Telaprevir trial drop-out rates in a couple of the articles were noted as 9% in Phase I and 12.5% in Phase II apparently. I don't know about Phase III/ Prove 3?
212161 tn?1476095111 Anyone have the scan of heart where they can tell you how much calcium is in your arteries , I can have a free one next week, but to scared to hear what they find, Had stress test and echo they were fine, this test will show as little as 15 percent block What ya think
Avatar n tn The fact that 3 neurologist have evaluated and examined you, and not found an abnormality is good news and should be encouraging. Its good that they have not found a serious neurological disease! Based on your symptoms, there is no indication for an EMG, but check with your doctor if you have not asked already as I do not know your full case.
Avatar f tn After the blockage was discovered thanks to a persistent PCP, and the stent inserted, I had chest pain afterwards. Was re-catheterized, all the major arteries were given a clean bill of health, but was placed on a beta blocker. Terrible reaction to the first one, put on a second one, and finally my cardiologist took me off that one as well. Although I see some improvement, I still have chest "aches" on exertion.
