Other than treating ulcers ... what others medical conditions would

Other than treating ulcers ... what others medical conditions would a doctor prescribe probantheline? I have been taking probantheline for 66 years as an alternative to surgery to treat excessive sweaty palms ... hyperhydrosis ... now my insurance company denies coverage because is not approved as a treatment for hyperhydrosis ... I am angry about this arbitrary decision without consulting me or my doctor.

Hi. About 3 weeks ago I went to the doctor for stomach spasms and heartburn. I was diagnosed with a peptic ulcer. The Doctor initally placed me on carafate which constipated me, so they took me off and put me on Prilosec. Since I have been on Prilosec, I have had lower abdominal pain, most below the belly button, which almost feels like gas. I have had multiple blood tests, CT scan and urin tests, all came back fine. I have been under a ton of stress, almost more from feeling the effects from what i think is either stress or side effects of the medicine. For the past week, I have felt a very gasy, burning feelilng in my very lower abdomen with flakey broken up stools. No exact acute area of pain, kind of comes and goes, however, they are more to lower left. Is this stressed related, side effects from the medicine, or another medical condition other than the ulcer I am being treated for?

Wondering what pain medication I should try when Aleve doesn t help much with pain in hip which I am told is probably caused by arthritis (after an x-ray). I also take medication for high blood pressure and Metformin for diabetes, which keeps both conditions under control. I am nearly 60 years old.

My 52 year old boyfriend gets Hiccups that don t go away until he goes to sleep, and they continue for awhile, even in his sleep, he has ulcerative colitis, but has not had any flare ups in almost 2 years, other than that he has no other medical conditions, is not overweight, and lifts weights four times a week, he usually gets them again shortly after eating, he has been to a GI specialist and has has had an EGD done, with no significant findings, he has been presribed Baclofen, and Reglan, and was instructed to take 2 Prilosec daily, none have made any difference, any suggestions on a specialist that could possibly help him? We have made several hospital visits as well, and MRI s, CT scans and x-rays have all been done, showing nothing, they come so close together sometimes that he can t breath, any advise would be greatly appreciated. He has complained to me before that it feels like his ears are clogged, just curious if you think there could be any correlation. Thanks so much.
