Took allergy meds earlier, half glass alcoholic cider, 1 soma (carisoprodol). Cant sleep, woke up with diarrhea throat tightness. Risk of respiratory concern?

The dangerous trio: If you are taking soma, (carisoprodol) allergy meds and consume alcohol, then you should understand the effects of mixing the three. When these substances are combined the effect is compounded. The symptoms could be seizures, drowsiness, dizziness respiratory problems, GI problem and even death. If you feel that you are addicted to Soma (carisoprodol) and alcohol, call your doctor. The help is available ...Read more

46 yr-old woman who 9 years ago started having progressive, dramatic neurological and pain symptoms after an "acute illness", including 50-pound.....?

Autoimmune: Post-infectious sequelae can cause a variety of syndromes and symptoms, largely of the autoimmune etiology. CIDP is a possibility. Do you have reflexes? CIDP can be diagnosed with EMG/NCS. Did you have that? There are panels of antibodies associated with not only CIDP but also autoimmune dysautonomia, which is another consideration. Were these panels sent? Mayo has comprehensive panels. For dysautonomia testing, I would recommend tilt table and skin biopsy for small fiber neuropathy. Other considerations include myopathies, which can be metabolic or mitochondrial, and I would recommend EMG as well as possible muscle biopsy. ...Read more

Feels like I'm not emptying bladder. A week ago I had what I thought was a UTI but drank cranberry juice and was gone the next day. Can it be UTI rela (carisoprodol)?

Feels like I'm not emptying bladder. A week ago I had what I thought was a UTI but drank cranberry juice and was gone the next day. Can it be UTI rela (carisoprodol)?

Maybe.: May be related to the UTI, but not emptying bladder may be more complicated than just a UTI. You should probably see your doc to make sure the bladder is emptying and get to the bottom of your problem - maybe this was not a UTI to begin with. Checking bladder volumes is a very simple and non invasive test. ...Read more

Chest pain was on the right side and lasted for a week then went away when I took Pepcid for 10 days as doctor prescribed on the last day pain came back on left side age 20 after I finished lifting my game system and monitor to car what is this pain rela

Chest pain, muscular: There are a few things that could be the cause although if it was clearly associated with the lifting then a pulled muscle is a good possibility. If you are having persistent chest pain with any exertion though, or pressure, nausea, tightness or shortness of breath it could be something else. Either way I'd just have urgent care take a quick look and maybe prescribe some physical therapy. ...Read more

Somedays whenever I stand up my heart rate elevates and I get real weak and dizzy. Doesn't last long but I hate it. I do have anxiety. Could it be rela (carisoprodol)?

Orthostatic: Hypotension would explain your symptoms. Increasing fluids significantly & liberalizing salt intake (provided you don't have htn) would be first steps. I'm assuming that you are not taking BP medication. If symptoms don't improve see your physician. ...Read more

Excruciating pain in shoulder blade and back of arm and tingling in fingers, help can't find much relief even taking an anti-inflammatory, muscle rela (carisoprodol)?

Nerve: Several considerations, such as nerve problem in neck shoulder region, or even distally in arm. See your doctor to find out if this might be cervical radiculopathy, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, or notalgia paresthetica. If this left sided, check for cardiac issues. ...Read more

Had an ablation on Sept 18. I do for my period now. But instead I got the stomach flu for over 36 hours. Nobody around me is sick. Could it be rela (carisoprodol)?

See below: The only tie-in would be if you caught it from one of the hospital personnel. On the other hand, stomach flu should subside in less than a week. If it doesn't you should call your physician. While a bacterial infection is a theoretical complication of an ablation, it is highly unlikely ...Read more

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far..... For more read my blog at: http://www.
