Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand the discomfort you face on account of pain and tinnitus.

Since you already had the ganglion block with temporary relief, as of now, you should start neuropathic pain medications.

Medicines that are likely to be helpful for you are pregabalin, gabapentin and carbamazepine.

If your pain is episodic (coming intermittently, lasting for few seconds), then carbamazepine would be the best drug to start. Otherwise, if the pain is constant, pregabalin or gabapentin would be the better choice.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,

I was given a urine test today. The test showed positive for opiate use. To the best of my knowelege I have not taken anything or eaten anything that would cause my test to be hot(positive). The only pain medication I have taken today was 600 mg. of ibuphrophen and 150 mg. of pregabalin for my neuropathy. I also am taking 750 mg. of levofloxacin and0.4 mg. of tamsulosin. the only thing exotic that I have eaten was a multi-grain fiber bar from kashai. I need to know what possibly could have my test come up hot. Thank you for your assistance.

I have been noticing tiny bubbles in my urine for the past couple of weeks. During this time, I ran out of my blood pressure meds and went about 8 days before getting the refill. During that time I gained about 8 lbs water weight. My hands and feet were swelling and also in the am my eyes were very puffy. At the end of the day I really had no ankles due to the swelling there. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, however it does not explain my blood work which showed the blood antigens were high and also the inflamation. At first they thought I had Lupus, but not enough symptoms to confirm, so I was told that I do not have lupus but I do have fibromyalgia. Since then I have noticed on a couple of occations that I have had ranauds symptoms in my toes. I have also noticed a very faint redness across my nose and in my cheek area under my eyes, but no redness around my eyes (I kinda look like a racoon with white eyes). I am currently taking Lyrica and Cymbalta along with my Lisinopril/Hctz. I guess my question is could this new symptom with the bubbles in the urine be an indicator that I do have Lupus?
