I will advise about avoiding processed food. As due to this you are getting acidity and due to which abnormal reactions. Feeling drowsy is a common thing after having processed food is the metabolism is slow.

Tingling in legs and arms aren't related to the processed food. It may be due to other factors and needs a separate examination and assessment.

Joint pains can be due to inflammation and not related to processed food. As we aren't knowing your age and any underlying past medical history we can not connect the processed food with the current mentioned symptoms.

Do some simple general exercise so the metabolism improves and you will also avoid processed food for good health.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had diverticulitis that was diagnosed in 2007. I was prescribed metronidazole and cipro, and for the next six years I took heavy doses of both whenever my diverticulitis flared up. I became very sick around 2009 and could hardly get out of bed for several years. In 2012 I started having a constant migraine and I had never had a migraine before in my life. First question: why didn t a doctor tell me there is no cure for diverticulitis and recommend immediate surgery? Second question: because of the time I was out of the work force, I lost a lot of income. I also developed neuropathy around 2010. I thought it was a circulation problem because my feet were numb. I didn t realize it was neuropathy until I asked my doctor about my numb, tingling feet. He prescribed Elavil for it, which didn t help. Also, my neurologist gave me Topamax to see if it would help my migraines, it didn t, but it did seem to cause other problems. I started falling a lot. I got to the point where I could not drive, I couldn t stand, I could just lay down. I was always nauseated and vomited a lot. In 2013 I had a colon resection, which helped a lot of the pain, but my surgeon found a grapefruit sized abscess that didn t show up on any CT scans. They tried a colonoscopy, but I was so infected they couldn t do it, even after IV antibiotics. I was in so much pain I told my surgeon just to go ahead with it. Then last year I got really sick and went to the emergency room. My stomach was three times enlarged and they thought they could see a blockage, possibly caused by an adhesion. I insisted upon surgery, and the same surgeon found another grapefruit sized abscess, this time in the area of the exit of my stomach. I believe if they had just removed the diverticulitis in the first place I would not have any of those problems. Now I live with painful and increasingly difficult neuropathy in my feet, legs, hands and arms. I also have arthritis and a lot of joint and muscle pain -- excruciating at times. Should I get an attorney and go after the pharmaceutical company that makes metronidazole, cipro and Topamax? Any advice?

I had a bad turn this morning, had a pain in my right arm last few days, thought it was muscle pain. This morning when I woke up, I had cramping pain in my stomach and felt nausea, felt the need to to go to toilet, when I was on the toilet, broke out in a cold sweat, felt light in the head like I was going to pass out, then had an episode of diarrhoea and felt a little better afterwards, felt like I was going to vomit but didn t following episode. i was at the doctors last tues and they put me on klacid for sinusitis for 10 days,I was a bit constipated earlier on in the week, and one morning brought up blood from my chest in my saliva, and trace of blood in my stool, but the doctor on tues did say they believe it could be the constipation causing this. I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.
