Does Lexapro Cause Joint Pain
Does lexpro help with pain? I just switched from Prozac to Lexapro (escitalopram) and had no idea some antidepressants helped with pain. I have terrible joint pain and numbness. Thank you!
NOT BEST FOR PAIN: There are other medications for pain that are also antidepressants such as Cymbalta and Effexor and pristiq (desvenlafaxine). Depends also on the type of pain that you are referring to. Lexapro is a good antidepressant however. Speak with your physician and do not worry too much about advertisements and commercials!See 1 more doctor answer
Many things: Really need more specifics to give any better answer.
See details: There are literally over one hundred causes of joint pain. The best advice I can give you is to see a rheumatologist and then you will have your answer.
Yes, The human body: Contains about 3.5 to 4.5 g of iron. Two thirds of this is present in blood and the rest is stored in the liver, spleen, bone marrow and muscles. Symptoms of iron deficiency include anemia, fatigue, rapid heartbeat, breathlessness, inability to concentrate, giddiness, disturbed sleep, severe menstrual pain and bleeding, cracks in the corners of the mouth, , mouth ulcers and hair loss.
Yes: Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are both inflammatory bowel diseases and both can be associated with joint pains, though it's more common with crohn's disease than with ulcerative colitis. Usually the joint pains get worse when the digestive problems flare up. Here's a link to some more info on this: http://ibdcrohns. About. Com/cs/relatedconditions/a/arthritisibd.

Possibly: It really depends what you mean by a hormone imbalance. What hormones are involved? If you are talking about Estrogens the answer is "no." other hormones such as thyroid can be associated with arthritic symptoms.
Forgive my frankness: The real herxheimer reaction results from the killing of large numbers of micro-organisms deep in the tissues by antimicrobial agents. Classically seen in the treatment of advanced syphilis, it's also been reported in other diseases with huge bacterial loads such as bartonellosis. Today's medical quacks diagnose a "herxheimer reaction" whenever one of their own products makes somebody sick.See 1 more doctor answer
