Question: Hello, I am a 27 year old female.. A couple weeks ago I started gettin this crazy internal tremors in my whole body but mostly in my hands. I was getting really worried about parkinsons but my tremors did not happen when at rest, only when moving. Today, two weeks later, tremors are kinda going away I think, at least getting better, but I am having body aches, my arms, legs, and shoulders, also having mild nausea. I went to the ER on wenesday and they did some blood work on me, everything came out good. What could it be?

Brief Answer:
Healthy diet, if needed additional supplements

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX

Seems like fibromyalgia which does't have definite treatment..

1) Apply hot fomentation over the pain spots
2) Don't indulge in any physical activity without prior warm up.
3)You can take safe pain killers like tramazac p (a combination tablet of acetaminophen 325 mg and tramadol 37.5mg)for 5 days.

You may also update me the blood reports to enhance my answer.

Hope this helps

Take care

Rule out hypothyroidism

Detailed Answer:
Hai again

Thanks for writing back.

Have you done thyroid function test(TFT)?

If not,would suggest to check your thyroid function( TSH,FT3,FT4)..Because in females at your age, most common reason for generalised weakness,internal tremors is under active thyroid.

You may also upload me the reports including TFT to help better.

You can upload in the query page (button on left side) or send it to YYYY@YYYY mentioning query id "223645"and ATTN to Dr.Senduran.

Awaiting your reply.

Hiya A friend has possibly overdosed on tramadol I believe he has took about 7 in a 5 hr period though cannot be sure. Apparently he was sick twice after this and is now 16hrs later feeling dizzy and having trouble urinating. He refuses to go to hospital as he knows it is his own fault and has never done anything so silly before and claims as the pain didn t go away he simply took more til it did. Is there anything I can do at home to help him. The people he lives with did call an ambulance but he refused to see them.

doctor1 MD

what is the longest period for taking tramadol to be safe? I have been taking for at least for 7 years. Hip replacement in need of another. Do not like taking these medications at all but need something. No high blood pressure or diabetic. Active in gym. Do not like meloxicam or any other to be h onest. Will have surgery soon as circumstance permits.
