I m a 57 year old female. My main illness is asthma/allergies which for the most part are under control. As I sit here, I have aching throbbing pain up and down my right leg, particularly in the thigh and to the right of my knee and down. It s taking over my life. I ve been limping on my right side for over a week now. I ve had restless leg syndrome for several years. There is a difference between that and what I m currently feeling.

I had a right mastectomy 28 years ago. In 2009 I had my second right breast inserted. The doctor told me that I would have shooting pain across my back which would last for a while. If it continued over a long period of time I should contact him. The pain disappeared except in the right upper back not quite underneath the arm. This pain only occurs if I wear a tight bra at which time I ll get intermittent mild pain for a day. This will disappear and return if I happen to wear the same type of tight garment.

I was on Levofloxaxin about 5 weeks ago. About 5-6 days in, I started with an unusual headache, when I would bend over. Lasted about a week, now have been left with just a nagging mild to moderate headache on the sides of my head. I don t usually get any headaches. -- I m an RN. Seemed like too long to have a persistent headache. I went to see my Oncologist today, as I had a mastectomy for breast cancer 1 & 1/2 years ago, wondering whether the headache could be at all related to cancer. He made me feel foolish for even asking, said I had DCIS cancer which would not spread like that. However, I had positive breast margins that went to my chest wall, so it always leaves me a nagging thought, if you get a weird symptom like this now. -- I will see my Primary Care tomorrow, to ask what he thinks, such as could it just be a continued reaction from Levaquin? I am 60 years old, and from what I now read, headaches seem more common in older females like me, with Levaquin.

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
