Brief Answer:
Are you still on crestor?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

I have reviewed your information fully and curious to know if you are still on crestor or not as most of these symptoms may be explained by this drug.

Let me know before going on with the discussion and making more definitive calls and recommendations. Until then, I wish you well.

Brief Answer:
I will recommend that you see a rheumatologist!

Detailed Answer:
HI and thank you so much for this detail information.

I have reviewed the records fully and am concerned that you could be having a rheumatological disorder. I will recommend that you see a rheumatologist to get tested for autoimmune disorders of the muscles and soft tissue. With frequent urination, I will also like to see at least a test being done for diabetes to role out this possibility.

These symptoms are unlikely to be explained by the crestor seen how sparingly you have taken it. I will suggest that you discontinue this treatment and get your blood lipids controlled again. This way we will know exactly where we stand.

Nice to hear the risperidone has been discontinued.

I will recommend healthy diet, no smoking, minimal alcohol consumption, regular physical exercise and if you do have excess weight, try to put off some. These will all aid in your general and especially cardiovascular health.

Let me know what your immediate thoughts are.

My 83 year old Mother has had for several years sudden nausea that happens for no apparent reason. She has had scans, procedures, & blood work to check for ulcers , acid reflux , stomach emptying problems, heart conditions etc. with no major problems found. Her gall bladder has been removed for at least 10 years, as well as her female organs. She does have diviticulitis and high blood pressure, which she takes meds for. It seems that her nausea comes on rapidly when she is shopping or moving her arms or bending. Her gastro , family and heart doctors have not found any reasons for these nausea attacks. Can you offer any possible reasons for what is happening to her. She does not feel dizzy, have headaches or notice anything before these episodes happen.

Hi, My daughter complains that her stomach hurts & throat . I can tell that it s her drink or food that comes back up which causes the pain in her throat. I have taken her to a stomach specialist, they did a camera down her throat & checked the acid reflux to see how aften but all came back normal. Still my daughter has pain. I took her off regular milk & have been giving her Lactose milk which helped for several months but now the symptoms are creeping back up. Who should I see ?
