Arm feels numb tingly since 4am is 11am now, no chest pain but I do have gas, had an anxiety attack yday for first time in 2yrs and am dehydrated.

I took prolia 4 months ago. After 2m I felt dizziness, excess gas in stomach, indigestion, mumbness in arms, loss of appetit and nausea, is it normal?

I took prolia 4 months ago. After 2m I felt dizziness, excess gas in stomach, indigestion, mumbness in arms, loss of appetit and nausea, is it normal?

Not normal: Hi. No, those symptoms certainly aren't normal, but they may have nothing to do with the Prolia. Have the symptoms persisted for the last 2 months (since they began)? If symptoms resolve, a test of the hypothesis that Prolia is causally related is to see if they recur with the next dose. If the symptoms were too bad to risk another Prolia dose, there are other good osteoporosis drugs available. ...Read more

In ER w/ numb cheek+ arm, pallor. CBC + EKG normal. Oximeter showed 99% sat. BUT venous gas blood O2 saturation LOW at 0.34 (ref. range 0.5-0.8). WHY?

In ER w/ numb cheek+ arm, pallor. CBC + EKG normal. Oximeter showed 99% sat. BUT venous gas blood O2 saturation LOW at 0.34 (ref. range 0.5-0.8). WHY?

Extraction or anemia: The oximeter only shows the amt of oxygen binding of the existing hemoglobin in the ARTERIES. JUST BECAUSE UR SATS R FINE DOESN'T MEAN EVERYTHING IS FINE. This is a common mistake even docs make. In ur case, the VENOUS blood has lower O2 content. It cd mean the body is using up more O2 (more extraction) d/t infx, vascular probs, smoking, etc. Or u cd be anemic. Less Hgb = lower O2 content. TTYD! ...Read more
