Hi. I have been prescribed and have been taking the lowest dose Gabapentin (3 100 mg tabs each night) for months for nerve pain from thoracic calcification causing nerve compression for which I have also been receiving intercostal nerve injections for several months (just received my 6th set of 2 levels last Friday). I have never increased that basic dose of Gabapentin, but have supplemented that pain management with over the counter meds (aleve 2x daily and rapid release tylenol 2x daily - staggered). I suddenly woke up today with what felt like pressure in my left ear, and at this point it still feels somewhat muffled with some mild ringing. I put in these meds and symptoms and came up with aspirin poisoning as my strongest suggested diagnosis. Im seeing an ortho tomorrow am for a finger I broke 6 weeks ago but only just confirmed it was broken and was going to mention the ear issue at my appointment although its not their specialty, and will also leave a message with my general md. But thought I would run this by you here also.

Hi, My husband was diagnosed with Valley Fever, but was never put on any type of medication because he was told that it was mild and that his body was taking care of it... He noticed a lump on his upper stomach around the same time that he thought was just a bug bite. It went from a small lump to a lump that is a little over an inch long and looks rather bruised. He said that shirts rubbing against it irritated it.. He has an appointment with his doctor in a weeks time.
