Is there anything that I can take for pain?
....during pregnancy- other than Tylenol- for ovarian cyst pain????
Asked by Dorcas Lechliter 2 years ago.
Everyone's contractions feel different so you could be headed toward the delivery room soon! Like PP said, time the pain and feel your tummy for tightening. Some women don't even end up feeling contractions until they are almost completely dilated. Some women also don't have regular contractions and only end up with back labor (which is usually VERY painful from what I've heard). No person or even labor is a like so don't be surprised if you aren't have the textbook signs of labor. Even if the pain isn't coming regularly and you can't figure out for sure what the gas pain is, you might want to call your doctor because I'm sure they have seen almost everything and can tell you what is going on. Good luck! Answered by Almeta Thackeray 2 years ago.
If you are looking for OTC meds...no...the only OTC pain reliever approved for use during pregnancy is tylenol. Unfortunately tylenol is not really an effective pain reliever...for most anyway! Check with your physician as they will be able to go over prescribed medications that are felt to be safe for use during pregnancy! Hope you find something that works for you! Good luck! *btw: Tylenol and Paracetamol are both acetaminophen, just sold under different generic names. Answered by Staci Victorino 2 years ago.
Paracetomol. I had gallbladder pain during my second pregnancy and they injected morphine I was in that much pain. I asked what was safe and they said very limited pain relief in pregnancy, not because it may be unsafe but because they haven't trialed them all in pregant women so therefore can't say for sure whether it is safe or not. What about a heat pad? Answered by Gabriella Wiss 2 years ago.
You can have paracetemol when you're pregnant. Otherwise you have to see the doctor so he can suggest something Answered by Tajuana Imperato 2 years ago.

Depending on how many PPM (parts per million) the test is based on, it is possible to fail a urine test by just hanging out with people that are smoking. If you haven't been hanging out with anyone that smokes, the only other way you'd be positive for THC is by ingesting some in a baked good. Illnesses of the kidneys and/or liver can cause a false positive. I am assuming that you ruled out prescriptions that can cause a false positive. Ibuprofen has been known to cause false positives for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, as does Aleve, Anaprox, Ansaid, Atripla, Bayer Select Pain Relief Formula, Clinoril, Cramp End Tablets, Datril, Dolobid, Edecrin, Efavirenz, Excedrin IB, Feldene, Fenoprofin, Flurbiprofen, Genpril, Haltran, Hempseed Oil, Ibuprin, Ifenoprofen, Indocin, Ketoprofen, Lodine, Marinol, Meclomen, Mediprim, Medipren, Midol, Motrin, Nalfon, Naprosyn, Naproxen, Naproxyn, NSAIDS, Nuprin, Orudis KT, Oxaprozin, Pamprin, Pantoprazole, Promethazine, Promethegan, Rufin, Sustiva, Tolectin, Vitamin B2 and Voltaren. If you have ingested any of the above pharmaceuticals , you are the victim of a false positive and should bring this to the attention of the testing lab and the prospective employer in question. xx Answered by Nicola Caruana 2 years ago.
if you are on any of the following medications you can show THC in your system - Dronabinol (Marinol) Ibuprofen; (Advil, Nuprin, Motrin, Excedrin IB etc) Ketoprofen (Orudis KT) Kidney infection (Kidney disease, diabetes) Liver Disease Naproxen (Aleve) Promethazine (Phenergan, Promethegan) Riboflavin (B2, Hempseed Oil) Ibuprofen would have to be very high dosages to trigger a false positive.

If you gain weight while you smoke weed (as many people do with the munchies and all) thc stores in your fat cells. Which is fine and all, it doesn't do anything while it sits there. However, if you lose weight later, the thc is released as the fat is burned. So the question is, have you lost weight? Answered by Marylyn Petrucci 2 years ago.

Asked by Tracy Pieczynski 2 years ago.
HI The Only Solo Rose (very creative) I must commend you first for assisting many people with your time. Athough I have different concepts on how to heal people then modern medicine (mostly drugs) I still see the value and willingness doctors and nurses are trying to help people. We need more healers in the world and we come from all different backgrounds of training and education. Again I applaud you sharing your expertise with so many. Now Ill share my thoughts with you and I have no idea about drugs, but I am very keen on how the body functions. Smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke causes high blood pressure because of how smoking damages cells and narrows arteries. In addition, cigarettes contain an abundance of life-threatening chemicals that further increase overall health risks. Even smokeless tobacco products such as chewing tobacco and snuff can raise blood pressure levels because of the nicotine and sodium they contain. Many of the other chemicals contained in cigarettes can create a toxic burden on the liver to further disturb healthy body habits. Pharmaceutical Drugs: According to the Physicians` Desk Reference, the following drugs can all cause high blood pressure as a side effect of their use: Alfenta Injection, Aredia for Injection, Dobutrex Solution Vials, Epogen for Injection, Habitrol Nicotine Transdermal System, Lupron Depot, Methergine Injection and Tablets, Orthoclone OKT3 Sterile Solution, Polygam Immune Globulin Intravenous Human, Procrit for Injection, Sandimmune, Sandimmune Soft Gelatin Capsules, Tolectin, Velban Vials, Ventolin Inhalation Aerosol and Refill, and Wellbutrin. ****Here are some ideas to contol your blood pressure: Quick Action Plan for High Blood Pressure 1. Make any necessary lifestyle changes. If you are overweight, commit to a weight loss plan. If you smoke, stop, and avoid all sources of secondhand smoke. Also exercise at least thirty minutes a day at least three to four times a week. Safe and effective exercise choices include brisk walking, bicycling, hiking, rebounding, and swimming. Additionally try a restorative yoga class, tai chi or chi gong; all can provide great stress relief and can be pleasurable ways to add movement to your life. 2. Adopt a healthy diet. In place of red meats, choose fish such as blue fish, cod, Greenland halibut, mackerel, and wild caught salmon, as well as free-range, organic poultry. If you want red meat choose bison, for a low fat option. 3. Emphasize fresh, organic fruits and vegetables that are rich in vital nutrients, such as avocados, bananas, cantaloupe, honeydew melons, grapefruit, nectarines, oranges, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, green peas, kidney and lima beans, leafy green vegetables, nuts such as almonds, cashews, walnuts and pecans, potatoes, squash, and yams, raw dairy, and whole grains like brown rice, buckwheat and quinoa. 4. Use raw virgin coconut butter or organic butter for cooking, and flaxseed and extra virgin olive oil for dressings. 5. Avoid alcohol, coffee, caffeine, and refined salt. 6. Supplement with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, vitamin C, bioflavonoids (especially rutin), vitamin E, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), evening primrose oil, fish oil, calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium, and zinc, as well as the amino acids cysteine, taurine, and tryptophan. 7. Useful herbs for high blood pressure include garlic, hawthorn berry, olive leaf extract, and the medicinal mushrooms maitake and reishi. 8. Drink at least one 8-ounce glass of fresh squeezed, organic vegetable juice each day. Excellent juice combinations include beet, carrot, and celery; and carrot or cucumber, spinach, and parsley. For added benefit, add one clove of juiced garlic. 9. Adopt a stress management program of daily meditation and/or relaxation exercises. 10. Detoxify your body to eliminate toxins and heavy metals that can dramatically increase the risk of high blood pressure. Quick Action Plan for Addictions 1. Determine if the addiction stems from allergies, biochemical imbalances, genetics, and/or malabsorption of nutrients. 2. Repressed core emotions such as denied anger often lead to depression, anxiety, lethargy, mood swings, and disassociation. Embracing your feelings is the most important aspect of beginning to deal with addictive behavior. 3. Regular chiropractic adjustments prove to be supportive, along with release-oriented tissue and bodywork techniques such as Rolfing. 4. Eat three meals and two snacks consistently. Emphasize quality protein foods such as organic poultry, bison, lamb, wild-caught fish, and eggs. Eat plenty of raw nuts and seeds, apples, berries, and other whole fruits; avoid all fruit juices. 5. A critical step in the recovery process is to cleanse, heal and support liver function by using herbs such as Milk Thistle, Dandelion and Bupleurum. 6. Blood-cleansing will support sluggish energy. Herbs in the form of tinctures or teas made from Oat Straw, Burdock Root, Echinacea, and Licorice Root are helpful, and are also vital to healthy kidney function. 7. To calm nerves and anxiety caused by addiction, use the herbs Skullcap, Valerian, and Vervain. 8. After eating a stable whole foods diet for at least 3 months, consider a juice fast of organic vegetable juices. 9. Take nutritional supplements. The B vitamins, particularly thiamin (B1) and B6 are important. Consider amino acid therapy for rebalancing brain chemistry, and to reduce cravings for alcohol, drugs, and/or nicotine. 10. Acupuncture, particularly auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture), is especially useful for drug addictions, and excellent for addressing addictive behaviors such as sex, gambling, and workaholicism. 11. Homeopathy, Hypnotherapy, Naturopathic Medicine and Orthomolecular Medicine are especially helpful for alcoholism, drug addiction, and smoking. Continue your quest to assisting people because the world is in great need. But we do need to have you happy and healthy. Learn about nutrition and drink a gallon of water a day (I do). Keep persuing the answers for all categories you want to know about. There are always higher level of truths to be found. Best of health to you Answered by Dirk Barcello 2 years ago.
Since you are a nurse, you probably know more about Hypotension than I do, but I'll give it a shot. First, remember that a persons BP can change drastically over a short period of time, often within minutes. No single reading can indicate High or Low BP. Several readings over time must be taken before there is a need for concern. Don't be alarmed by a single reading. Second, there are many factors that can affect your blood pressure. Some of those factors are: - Stress (Emotional, mental and physical) - Some medications (or combinations) can cause a rise or drop in BP - Poor sleep habits and sleep disorders (Sleep Apnea, not enough sleep, sleep disturbances, etc.) - Body position as the reading is taken (lying down. sitting, arm not level with heart, legs crossed, etc.) - Also there is a condition called "White Coat Hypertension". This is when a person visits a doctor and their BP goes up. It's an example of mental stress. - and of course smoking (or not). - How long it's been since your last meal. - Caffeine - Alcohol - Needing to go to the bathroom This comes from the FamilyDoctor.org website: "Hypotension, or low blood pressure, happens when your systolic pressure is consistently (several blood pressure readings over several days) below 90--or 25 points below your normal reading. Hypotension can be a sign of something serious such as shock, a life threatening condition. Contact your doctor immediately if you are dizzy or fainting" If you just started the medication, then it and quitting smoking has probably combined to cause this. It may take a little time for your body to adjust to both improvements and settle out. If you have been on the medication for some time, then I suspect the sudden drop in BP is due to the lack of smoking (nicotine) in your system. I have seen the same result when I don't smoke for several hours, though my BP never drops that low. But my HR varies from around 60 bpm to above 90 bpm (normally 68 to 84 bpm range) and my O2 Sat remains above 90% and is normally above 94%. I wouldn't worry about the HR at all, unless it continues to drop below 50 bpm or stays very near that for some time. As for the BP that is a concern if it remains there, but if it continues to drop I would suggest a visit to the ER is in order. My information comes from my research and experience with 5x Bypasses in Oct. 2006, High BP (Hypertension), High Cholesterol (Hypercholesterolemia), COPD (Emphysema) and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. I suggest the links below for more information. Answered by Johnsie Weisz 2 years ago.
I'm no pro, but I have an opinion, so I'll share it! First of all, I'm so glad to hear you are quitting smoking. It's a huge step, I'm sure, but a very important one. So kudos to you! Now, as to the hypotension issue, I'm guessing that if you called your doctor and suggested that a) your BP is running low as you withdraw from nicotine so b) you're contemplating scaling back the HTN meds, he would have no problem with it. You already monitor your BP regularly (apparently), so there's no reason that you can't carefully adjust your medications to keep your BP in line. That said, fainting ain't good. If this hasn't happened to you before, you really ought to get a more complete cardio workup. Just my 2 cents worth... Answered by Sherly Duceman 2 years ago.
I am not a doctor or a nurse, but I feel this is true. As you probably are aware smoking (the nicotine) causes increased heart rate and increased blood pressure. So actually with the nicotine going out of your system now it caused your BP to start dropping and your heart rate. The same thing happened to me when I quit smoking, heart rate decreased and so did my BP. I consulted my cardiologist and physician and they began to decrease my BP meds as they told me you should never just stop taking BP meds cold turkey. I monitored my BP with every decreased dosage they told me to do. My BP remained where it should and then I was off the BP meds. Unfortunately, then I started to smoke again, and my BP increased and so did my heart rate, went back on BP meds again, BUT NOW, I HAVE FINALLY KICKED THE HABIT, have not been smoking for a year now and BP and heart rate is fine. I am just talking from personal experience and I also know that nicotine does increase heart rate and blood pressure. Answered by Marylouise Colo 2 years ago.
There are many different types of medications that act in different ways to lower BP. The first medication your Dr prescribes may not work well enough or have some adverse side effects. It is important to track BP when you start taking HTN medication and note any side effects you may experience. There are many types of medications available and different combinations of medications that can tried. It is important to treat HTN as it can lead to many serious medical problems. It is important to get your BP checked regularly so that you don’t suffer from the terrible effects of long term untreated HTN, since it is very treatable and the alternatives are costly in many ways, including an untimely death.
