Not: Not clear if this is related to dietary change. Probably not. I bet you feel better now.
But I do suggest that you easy on the carbs and calories. It would be a shame if you gain weight back that you lost. Keep protein intake up, stay active and watch the carbs. You may find the link below of interest. ...Read more

Got the flu shot Friday and over the weekend I was having minor seizure activity. Blurred vision, eye roll etc. Can this be from the flu shot?

Mgt: This should definitely be reported to your PCP. This needs to be noted/reported. It may or may not be related. It would be very unusual for your seizure to be related directly to the flu vaccination itself. If you are allergic to eggs for example, an allergic reaction may occur. ...Read more

On any meds?: First thing I'd wonder about is whether you're taking a beta-blocker for migraines or mitral-valve prolapse or some other reason. Your symptoms are consistent with that. If not, something else is slowing down your heart, which would be no big deal if you had no symptoms. You should get this checked out in a TIMELY fashion. ...Read more

Hi I have recently had blurred vision. I have had phenergan (promethazine) infrequently for hay fever. I am wondering if it is the phenergan (promethazine).

Hi I have recently had blurred vision. I have had phenergan (promethazine) infrequently for hay fever. I am wondering if it is the phenergan (promethazine).

Could be, yes, maybe: Phenergan (promethazine) has anticholinergic effects that can also result in pupillary dilation. This can make the vision blurry under certain lighting conditions. Many drugs can have varying degrees of anticholinergic effects that result in sleepiness, dry mouth, redness, rapid heartbeat, sedation, and pupillary dilation. Besides pupillary dilation, Phenergan (promethazine) can also cause even angle closure glaucoma. ...Read more
