I apoligize for this being so long, but I am VERY frustrated.. For the past month or so, every time I drink alcohol, OR sometimes when I lay down flat to sleep. I develop inflammation and EXTREME pain to the extent of tearing out of my eye, and SOMETIMES a runny nose on the left side of my face. Areas of inflammation include the top middle of my left jaw, the jaw hinge, lymph nodes, temple, beside my left nostril, and in my sinus. And my eye has pain and sometimes feels like there is pressure behind it. It must be getting worse, as the past two times I played golf, it also happened as well.The only thing that relieves it is to rub an ice pack around all the inflamed areas for about half an hour. I thought it was a root canal failure problem resulting in an infection, (but my dentist could see no sign of that in x-rays, (he put me through a course of antibiotics, but it didn't do anything.) He thinks that it may involve my sinus area, and is to do with my blood pressure, (I have high blood pressure, and incomplete right branch bundle block.) But he says that it is puzzling that a problem that seems caused by blood vessels opening up, is relieved when I put ice on the area, as that ALSO causes blood vessels to open. He suggests that it may be an occlusion.??? The following information MAY help with this problem: -About 20 years ago, I fell back onto a fiberglass seat on a boat when it jumped over a wave. -I started to have EXTREME pains in the base of the left side of my neck. It felt like it was in the BASE of my brain stem. -The only relief was chiropractic adjustments a few times a week. -After two years of this, I just wished I was dead. -A chinese kung fu expert and doctor visited my home town. He did some muxibustion, acupuncture and massages on me, and after 6 treatments, everything started to subside. -Since then every once in awhile I have some pain there, but it gradually got better. -About 4-5 years ago, I had a few bouts of pain in the neck and once got relief by seeing an osteopath did some adjustments on my neck and shoulders. -When I developed blood pressure the ONLY medication I could take was a beta blocker. The others (which open blood vessels) caused headaches and EXTREME pain in the same lower neck area. -Now I am on two "types" of beta blockers, as I was at the limit with the ternomin (100-200 mg) and couldn't take anything else. the other is trandate, as it allows me to take up to 300 mgs (three times a day) -I am allergic to aspirin, NSAID'S, some vitamins, and even a few herbs and spices.. -I have all the side effects of these meds. weight gain, acute eczema and phryisis, swollen ankles with edema. -I have also developed arthritis in my ankles and other joints.This has left me unable to exercise as my knees and ankles really swell up if I try to jog, or even walk for a time on a tread mill. -Recently I have had a few bouts of EXTREMELY painful gout, one that sent me to the ER. (I did the blood test and it showed that I had the high count of uric acid, but no rheumatoid arthritis, although I was previously diagnosed with arthritis especially on my left ankle (old injury) that has had me on crutches quite a few times after playing a few rounds of golf on consecutive days. (Although sometimes I was told it could be gout.) I am starting to feel like a REAL old man, although I played a LOT of sports in my day, including American Football and 20 years of rugby. I stated all of the above facts because I feel that if the problem is not related to my teeth, it must be something to do with the problems from the old injury to the base of my neck, as it is a very similar pain. The questions are: What my problem could possibly be, (or course.) What type of doctor should I see about this? What type of test, scans etc.. can be done to check the old injury site in the base of my neck, (I always thought that it was a pinch nerve (done by a partially dislodged bone?) that was eventually worked free enough to ease the chronic pain, but whenever my blood vessels in that area are opened for any reason, it pinches the nerve that is still partially trapped. -What type of test/scans can be done to check to see if I do have an occlusion in my sinus area, or somewhere in the left side of the blood vessels in my brain? Answered by Annika Delbert 1 year ago.

Hi William, As I was reading this I was thinking of Neuralgia too, as the person before posted. I have attached a link I found on the Internet where you can read about it. If it is Neuralgia, my sister had this real bad about 5 years ago, she was about 30 at the time, pain like you would not beleive, that came in 'attacks' - she actually nearly crashed her car when she slumped over the wheel, so take it easy. Hope you get sorted..... Answered by Gretchen Keyt 1 year ago.

Hi there, Im not sure what age you are BUT if the pain and inflammation are one sided , i.e one side of the facial area or head then it is suggestive that the pain is following the path of 1 or more branches of the trigeminal nerve on that affected side of your face. Possibilities are TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA, or if you are older(50+) TEMPORAL ARTERITIS. The latter of these two conditions mentioned is by far the more serious and is sometimes called GIANT CELL ARTERITIS. G.C.A usually carries symptoms similar to yours but also you should look out for symptoms such as pain upon chewing, scalp tenderness( pain when brushing hair) and in some cases you can actually physically examine the arteries on the temples(side of the head) and they may physically look swollen. You have detailed a quite complex medical history here but i would say that all the symptoms your having may not all have the same source. I would suggest your HBP and relevant meds to be irrelevant. I would go straight to a GP and get referred to a neurologist. All my best, John Answered by Danelle Deems 1 year ago.

Sounds like an inflammation. Don't blow your nose too hard (ears can get it, too). Skip exercises & workouts for now. Any fever? Ask about Tylenol. If no better in 7 days, see a Nurse Practitioner. Answered by Cherelle Spacagna 1 year ago.

A few months ago I saw a doctor for chest pains and tightness, shortness of breath, and fatigue. During that visit I had blood work done that concluded that I was anemic as well as a chest x-ray done that came back good. She said my blood pressure was very high and asked if I was stressed. She prescribed me an iron supplement for the anemia and told me to come back for a follow up appointment in a month. About a month later, I went for an eye exam and my blood pressure was extremely high. I went back to my primary care doctor and told her how high it was at the eye doctor and it was only then that she decided to put me on some kind of medication (despite it being high many times when I saw her for other things). She put me on Clonodine and told me to come back in a week. The Clonodine made me feel awful and I could barely stay awake on it. When I went back to see her the following week, my blood pressure was so high that I ended up having to go to the emergency room. She showed a lot of concern that day, called a cab to take me to the hospital since she didn't want me driving, and was really caring and nice. The ER doctor ended up taking me off the Clonodine and prescribed me Trandate instead, which has kept my blood pressure under control. After going to my primary care doctor for a follow up, she said she wasn't sure what else to do and referred me to a cardiologist, who has been absolutely useless. When I ran out of medicine last week and needed to see her to refill my prescription, her receptionist made a mistake in the scheduling of the appointment (made the appointment for Sept 30 instead of Aug 1) and refused to let me see her. Since I was visiting my parents that weekend, I saw their doctor instead who provided me with much better care and seemed much more knowledgeable than any of the doctors I've seen up by me. My doctor's a really nice person and has shown a lot of concern, but I think in some ways she's a little negligent. When I went in initially for the chest pains and chest tightness and had high blood pressure, she didn't seem to be concerned about that. Since my blood pressure has been under control, I haven't had any more chest pains or tightness, so I now know that was a symptom of my blood pressure being high. What do you guys think of this doctor? Good? Bad? Trying her best? Like I said, she's really nice but my family's upset that she didn't do anything about my blood pressure until I brought it up.

Pre-term labor question??? Twins?
I forgot to add, the On-call doctor decided not to prescribe the Terbutaline pills to me after she saw my reaction. I guess it scared them. I have asthma and they wouldnt let me use my inhaler when I was short of breath. It was scary. Asked by Carmelina Geigle 1 year ago.

Hello to all :) I am 34 weeks pregnant with twins. I went into pre-term labor 2 weeks ago. I was advised to go to the hospital and did. They were advised by an on-call doctor at my dr office, to give me 2 bags of IV fluid and to give me 2 shots of Terbutalene and 1 Terbutalene pill to take. Well, I started having complications from the medicines. My heart started racing, and I couldnt breathe, I also had severe chest pain and they had to perform 2 EKG's. They later released me to the ER where I was placed on oxygen for an hour until my heart rate returned to normal. My contractions did stop that day but have been ongoing ever since. I have been having "real" contractions, not Braxton Hicks. I have no idea if I have dialated. Basically my Dr. wants me to go to the hospital and get more of the medicine that almost killed me so they can stop the contractions. I know I have the right to not take it. I feel like if its time, its time. How would you handle this with your dr? Answered by Tayna Sturkie 1 year ago.

This is YOUR pregnancy and you need to do what you feel is right. If this stuff nearly killed you, it may happen again. You dying is not going to help those babies! Talk to your doctor about options. If he won't be cooperative, ask if you can talk to someone else for a second opinion. Ask if they can try a different medication. If not, weigh the pros and cons of delivering now or attempting to take the medication again. It's always better if the babies are delivered full term but many babies have been delivered at 34 weeks due to preterm labor or complications with the mother, baby(s), and/or pregnancy. Although they have a higher risk of complications, it is sometimes necessary to do this and many are just fine. My own siblings (twins) were delivered at 34 weeks and spent a couple weeks in the NICU. No complications other than they were small and needed help breathing for a few days. They're now 26 years old and perfectly normal. Good luck and I hope things work out for you. Congratulations on your twins! Answered by Nita Bezzo 1 year ago.

From my understanding twins ussually come early and are smaller anyways. My husband is a twin. They were born at 32 weeks and weighed about 3.5 lbs a piece and are both fine. When I first found out I was pregnant I was wondering if it was twins seeing as how it runs in both our families, and had asked him about it. Althogh 37 weeks is "full term" He also said that technology is so advance that babies are surviving at 20+ weeks. I would think bue to your reaction to the meds last time that theywould never give it to you again and putit on file that it is not for you! If your contractions are real close together and you are thinking it is time I would jsut go strait to the hospital tell them tht theycan not stop your labor with the meds because this happened 2 weeks ago with it, and they hopefully will listen! Some er docs I learned are alot better in these situations than your doc that wants you to wait. Good luk and congrats on the twins. I hope you find a way to relax and sooth yourself until that point! Answered by Edith Dipiazza 1 year ago.

If you are having strong, frequent contractions, there is no question about it, you need to go in and be checked. People confuse braxton hicks, thinking they are "fake", but they can feel very strong at times. It's possible you haven't dilated enough to worry about it yet. If you are in labor, and they can't give you anything else to stop contractions, maybe they can go ahead and check on the twins via ultrasound to see how they are doing. It's possible that a delivery at this point could be ok. After all 34 weeks isn't all that early for twins anyway. Answered by Violeta Touvell 1 year ago.

My cousin took the same medicine & could hardly breath when she took them. 34 wks for twins is good, but the longer u go the better the chance that their lungs have matured, and they won't be in the nicu. I was 37 wks w/ a single baby and contractions & they would not deliver me either. My Dr. said 38 weeks plus for the babies lungs. If u feel u r contracting, go to the Dr. and get checked right away,don't take chances. Dr.'s don't want to do anything until they actually see you. I think they r so used to their job they forget u r the one going through this & its all new to u. Congratulations on the twins & making it to 34wks Answered by Myung Westerfeld 1 year ago.

Signs of preterm labor: Call your midwife or doctor right away if you're having any of the following symptoms in your second or third trimester (before 37 weeks): • An increase in vaginal discharge • A change in the type of discharge — if it becomes watery, mucus-like, or bloody (even if it's pink or just tinged with blood) • Any vaginal bleeding or spotting • Abdominal pain, menstrual-like cramping, or more than four contractions in one hour (even if they don't hurt) • An increase in pressure in the pelvic area (a feeling that your baby is pushing down) • Low back pain, especially if you didn't previously have back pain These symptoms can be confusing because some of them, such as pelvic pressure or low back pain, occur during normal pregnancies, too, and sporadic early contractions may just be Braxton Hicks contractions. But it's always better to be safe than sorry, so call your midwife or doctor right away if you're experiencing anything unusual. Answered by Lacresha Rawlins 1 year ago.

My 2nd pregnancy was twins, I also had preterm labor at 32wks, was given meds to stop it...it's common for those meds to make your heart race just not the chest pain. I went into labor again at 34wks 5days and they let me deliver that time. Twins were great weights and extremely healthy. I don't know why on earth she'd give you those meds again but if you're in labor and having real contractions that are regular you need to go in. If they are real but irregular then you should be fine, ,maybe jsut call and let them know? If I were you I wouldn't take the meds again especially not at this point. Answered by Tatum Drube 1 year ago.

I had twins and early contractions 30 weeks. my specialist put me on bed rest and gave me the same stuff. It made my heart race, but that's it. I was told it was OK to go into labor at 34 weeks. I did go into labor at 34 weeks and 3 days and they delivered me. Is there a reason they wont deliver you now? Or is there something else they can give you because you had such a bad reaction. Answered by Jenee Tapaha 1 year ago.

I would talk to your doc and tell him your concerns. I think that it is your right not to take it. Just remember that you have two little ones inside you and the longer they stay there the better off they are. Congrats and Good Luck Answered by Shelby Manasse 1 year ago.

Hi William, As I was reading this I was thinking of Neuralgia too, as the person before posted. I have attached a link I found on the Internet where you can read about it. If it is Neuralgia, my sister had this real bad about 5 years ago, she was about 30 at the time, pain like you would not beleive, that came in 'attacks' - she actually nearly crashed her car when she slumped over the wheel, so take it easy. Hope you get sorted..... Answered by Edna Scrimpsher 1 year ago.

Hi there, Im not sure what age you are BUT if the pain and inflammation are one sided , i.e one side of the facial area or head then it is suggestive that the pain is following the path of 1 or more branches of the trigeminal nerve on that affected side of your face. Possibilities are TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA, or if you are older(50+) TEMPORAL ARTERITIS. The latter of these two conditions mentioned is by far the more serious and is sometimes called GIANT CELL ARTERITIS. G.C.A usually carries symptoms similar to yours but also you should look out for symptoms such as pain upon chewing, scalp tenderness( pain when brushing hair) and in some cases you can actually physically examine the arteries on the temples(side of the head) and they may physically look swollen. You have detailed a quite complex medical history here but i would say that all the symptoms your having may not all have the same source. I would suggest your HBP and relevant meds to be irrelevant. I would go straight to a GP and get referred to a neurologist. All my best, John Answered by Robin Gransky 1 year ago.

A few months ago I saw a doctor for chest pains and tightness, shortness of breath, and fatigue. During that visit I had blood work done that concluded that I was anemic as well as a chest x-ray done that came back good. She said my blood pressure was very high and asked if I was stressed. She prescribed me an iron supplement for the anemia and told me to come back for a follow up appointment in a month. About a month later, I went for an eye exam and my blood pressure was extremely high. I went back to my primary care doctor and told her how high it was at the eye doctor and it was only then that she decided to put me on some kind of medication (despite it being high many times when I saw her for other things). She put me on Clonodine and told me to come back in a week. The Clonodine made me feel awful and I could barely stay awake on it. When I went back to see her the following week, my blood pressure was so high that I ended up having to go to the emergency room. She showed a lot of concern that day, called a cab to take me to the hospital since she didn't want me driving, and was really caring and nice. The ER doctor ended up taking me off the Clonodine and prescribed me Trandate instead, which has kept my blood pressure under control. After going to my primary care doctor for a follow up, she said she wasn't sure what else to do and referred me to a cardiologist, who has been absolutely useless. When I ran out of medicine last week and needed to see her to refill my prescription, her receptionist made a mistake in the scheduling of the appointment (made the appointment for Sept 30 instead of Aug 1) and refused to let me see her. Since I was visiting my parents that weekend, I saw their doctor instead who provided me with much better care and seemed much more knowledgeable than any of the doctors I've seen up by me. My doctor's a really nice person and has shown a lot of concern, but I think in some ways she's a little negligent. When I went in initially for the chest pains and chest tightness and had high blood pressure, she didn't seem to be concerned about that. Since my blood pressure has been under control, I haven't had any more chest pains or tightness, so I now know that was a symptom of my blood pressure being high. What do you guys think of this doctor? Good? Bad? Trying her best? Like I said, she's really nice but my family's upset that she didn't do anything about my blood pressure until I brought it up.

Pre-term labor question??? Twins?
I forgot to add, the On-call doctor decided not to prescribe the Terbutaline pills to me after she saw my reaction. I guess it scared them. I have asthma and they wouldnt let me use my inhaler when I was short of breath. It was scary. Asked by Kayce Stoltenberg 1 year ago.

Hello to all :) I am 34 weeks pregnant with twins. I went into pre-term labor 2 weeks ago. I was advised to go to the hospital and did. They were advised by an on-call doctor at my dr office, to give me 2 bags of IV fluid and to give me 2 shots of Terbutalene and 1 Terbutalene pill to take. Well, I started having complications from the medicines. My heart started racing, and I couldnt breathe, I also had severe chest pain and they had to perform 2 EKG's. They later released me to the ER where I was placed on oxygen for an hour until my heart rate returned to normal. My contractions did stop that day but have been ongoing ever since. I have been having "real" contractions, not Braxton Hicks. I have no idea if I have dialated. Basically my Dr. wants me to go to the hospital and get more of the medicine that almost killed me so they can stop the contractions. I know I have the right to not take it. I feel like if its time, its time. How would you handle this with your dr? Answered by Muriel Mihalchik 1 year ago.

This is YOUR pregnancy and you need to do what you feel is right. If this stuff nearly killed you, it may happen again. You dying is not going to help those babies! Talk to your doctor about options. If he won't be cooperative, ask if you can talk to someone else for a second opinion. Ask if they can try a different medication. If not, weigh the pros and cons of delivering now or attempting to take the medication again. It's always better if the babies are delivered full term but many babies have been delivered at 34 weeks due to preterm labor or complications with the mother, baby(s), and/or pregnancy. Although they have a higher risk of complications, it is sometimes necessary to do this and many are just fine. My own siblings (twins) were delivered at 34 weeks and spent a couple weeks in the NICU. No complications other than they were small and needed help breathing for a few days. They're now 26 years old and perfectly normal. Good luck and I hope things work out for you. Congratulations on your twins! Answered by Tandra Hildesheim 1 year ago.

From my understanding twins ussually come early and are smaller anyways. My husband is a twin. They were born at 32 weeks and weighed about 3.5 lbs a piece and are both fine. When I first found out I was pregnant I was wondering if it was twins seeing as how it runs in both our families, and had asked him about it. Althogh 37 weeks is "full term" He also said that technology is so advance that babies are surviving at 20+ weeks. I would think bue to your reaction to the meds last time that theywould never give it to you again and putit on file that it is not for you! If your contractions are real close together and you are thinking it is time I would jsut go strait to the hospital tell them tht theycan not stop your labor with the meds because this happened 2 weeks ago with it, and they hopefully will listen! Some er docs I learned are alot better in these situations than your doc that wants you to wait. Good luk and congrats on the twins. I hope you find a way to relax and sooth yourself until that point! Answered by Hong Acimovic 1 year ago.

If you are having strong, frequent contractions, there is no question about it, you need to go in and be checked. People confuse braxton hicks, thinking they are "fake", but they can feel very strong at times. It's possible you haven't dilated enough to worry about it yet. If you are in labor, and they can't give you anything else to stop contractions, maybe they can go ahead and check on the twins via ultrasound to see how they are doing. It's possible that a delivery at this point could be ok. After all 34 weeks isn't all that early for twins anyway. Answered by Carita Baumbach 1 year ago.

My cousin took the same medicine & could hardly breath when she took them. 34 wks for twins is good, but the longer u go the better the chance that their lungs have matured, and they won't be in the nicu. I was 37 wks w/ a single baby and contractions & they would not deliver me either. My Dr. said 38 weeks plus for the babies lungs. If u feel u r contracting, go to the Dr. and get checked right away,don't take chances. Dr.'s don't want to do anything until they actually see you. I think they r so used to their job they forget u r the one going through this & its all new to u. Congratulations on the twins & making it to 34wks Answered by Magali Lintner 1 year ago.

Signs of preterm labor: Call your midwife or doctor right away if you're having any of the following symptoms in your second or third trimester (before 37 weeks): • An increase in vaginal discharge • A change in the type of discharge — if it becomes watery, mucus-like, or bloody (even if it's pink or just tinged with blood) • Any vaginal bleeding or spotting • Abdominal pain, menstrual-like cramping, or more than four contractions in one hour (even if they don't hurt) • An increase in pressure in the pelvic area (a feeling that your baby is pushing down) • Low back pain, especially if you didn't previously have back pain These symptoms can be confusing because some of them, such as pelvic pressure or low back pain, occur during normal pregnancies, too, and sporadic early contractions may just be Braxton Hicks contractions. But it's always better to be safe than sorry, so call your midwife or doctor right away if you're experiencing anything unusual. Answered by Carolynn Meineke 1 year ago.

My 2nd pregnancy was twins, I also had preterm labor at 32wks, was given meds to stop it...it's common for those meds to make your heart race just not the chest pain. I went into labor again at 34wks 5days and they let me deliver that time. Twins were great weights and extremely healthy. I don't know why on earth she'd give you those meds again but if you're in labor and having real contractions that are regular you need to go in. If they are real but irregular then you should be fine, ,maybe jsut call and let them know? If I were you I wouldn't take the meds again especially not at this point. Answered by Marshall Schwartzenbur 1 year ago.

I had twins and early contractions 30 weeks. my specialist put me on bed rest and gave me the same stuff. It made my heart race, but that's it. I was told it was OK to go into labor at 34 weeks. I did go into labor at 34 weeks and 3 days and they delivered me. Is there a reason they wont deliver you now? Or is there something else they can give you because you had such a bad reaction. Answered by Leida Mckendrick 1 year ago.

I apoligize for this being so long, but I am VERY frustrated.. For the past month or so, every time I drink alcohol, OR sometimes when I lay down flat to sleep. I develop inflammation and EXTREME pain to the extent of tearing out of my eye, and SOMETIMES a runny nose on the left side of my face. Areas of inflammation include the top middle of my left jaw, the jaw hinge, lymph nodes, temple, beside my left nostril, and in my sinus. And my eye has pain and sometimes feels like there is pressure behind it. It must be getting worse, as the past two times I played golf, it also happened as well.The only thing that relieves it is to rub an ice pack around all the inflamed areas for about half an hour. I thought it was a root canal failure problem resulting in an infection, (but my dentist could see no sign of that in x-rays, (he put me through a course of antibiotics, but it didn't do anything.) He thinks that it may involve my sinus area, and is to do with my blood pressure, (I have high blood pressure, and incomplete right branch bundle block.) But he says that it is puzzling that a problem that seems caused by blood vessels opening up, is relieved when I put ice on the area, as that ALSO causes blood vessels to open. He suggests that it may be an occlusion.??? The following information MAY help with this problem: -About 20 years ago, I fell back onto a fiberglass seat on a boat when it jumped over a wave. -I started to have EXTREME pains in the base of the left side of my neck.

I would think bue to your reaction to the meds last time that theywould never give it to you again and putit on file that it is not for you! If your contractions are real close together and you are thinking it is time I would jsut go strait to the hospital tell them tht theycan not stop your labor with the meds because this happened 2 weeks ago with it, and they hopefully will listen! Some er docs I learned are alot better in these situations than your doc that wants you to wait. Good luk and congrats on the twins. I hope you find a way to relax and sooth yourself until that point! Answered by Alberta Weisman 1 year ago.

If you are having strong, frequent contractions, there is no question about it, you need to go in and be checked. People confuse braxton hicks, thinking they are "fake", but they can feel very strong at times. It's possible you haven't dilated enough to worry about it yet. If you are in labor, and they can't give you anything else to stop contractions, maybe they can go ahead and check on the twins via ultrasound to see how they are doing. It's possible that a delivery at this point could be ok. After all 34 weeks isn't all that early for twins anyway. Answered by Shawna Schuyleman 1 year ago.

My cousin took the same medicine & could hardly breath when she took them. 34 wks for twins is good, but the longer u go the better the chance that their lungs have matured, and they won't be in the nicu. I was 37 wks w/ a single baby and contractions & they would not deliver me either. My Dr. said 38 weeks plus for the babies lungs. If u feel u r contracting, go to the Dr. and get checked right away,don't take chances. Dr.'s don't want to do anything until they actually see you. I think they r so used to their job they forget u r the one going through this & its all new to u. Congratulations on the twins & making it to 34wks Answered by Ila Hawkings 1 year ago.

Signs of preterm labor: Call your midwife or doctor right away if you're having any of the following symptoms in your second or third trimester (before 37 weeks): • An increase in vaginal discharge • A change in the type of discharge — if it becomes watery, mucus-like, or bloody (even if it's pink or just tinged with blood) • Any vaginal bleeding or spotting • Abdominal pain, menstrual-like cramping, or more than four contractions in one hour (even if they don't hurt) • An increase in pressure in the pelvic area (a feeling that your baby is pushing down) • Low back pain, especially if you didn't previously have back pain These symptoms can be confusing because some of them, such as pelvic pressure or low back pain, occur during normal pregnancies, too, and sporadic early contractions may just be Braxton Hicks contractions. But it's always better to be safe than sorry, so call your midwife or doctor right away if you're experiencing anything unusual. Answered by Bettie Croyle 1 year ago.

My 2nd pregnancy was twins, I also had preterm labor at 32wks, was given meds to stop it...it's common for those meds to make your heart race just not the chest pain. I went into labor again at 34wks 5days and they let me deliver that time. Twins were great weights and extremely healthy. I don't know why on earth she'd give you those meds again but if you're in labor and having real contractions that are regular you need to go in. If they are real but irregular then you should be fine, ,maybe jsut call and let them know? If I were you I wouldn't take the meds again especially not at this point. Answered by Raquel Pikey 1 year ago.

I had twins and early contractions 30 weeks. my specialist put me on bed rest and gave me the same stuff. It made my heart race, but that's it. I was told it was OK to go into labor at 34 weeks. I did go into labor at 34 weeks and 3 days and they delivered me. Is there a reason they wont deliver you now? Or is there something else they can give you because you had such a bad reaction.

I apoligize for this being so long, but I am VERY frustrated.. For the past month or so, every time I drink alcohol, OR sometimes when I lay down flat to sleep. I develop inflammation and EXTREME pain to the extent of tearing out of my eye, and SOMETIMES a runny nose on the left side of my face. Areas of inflammation include the top middle of my left jaw, the jaw hinge, lymph nodes, temple, beside my left nostril, and in my sinus. And my eye has pain and sometimes feels like there is pressure behind it. It must be getting worse, as the past two times I played golf, it also happened as well.The only thing that relieves it is to rub an ice pack around all the inflamed areas for about half an hour. I thought it was a root canal failure problem resulting in an infection, (but my dentist could see no sign of that in x-rays, (he put me through a course of antibiotics, but it didn't do anything.) He thinks that it may involve my sinus area, and is to do with my blood pressure, (I have high blood pressure, and incomplete right branch bundle block.) But he says that it is puzzling that a problem that seems caused by blood vessels opening up, is relieved when I put ice on the area, as that ALSO causes blood vessels to open. He suggests that it may be an occlusion.??? The following information MAY help with this problem: -About 20 years ago, I fell back onto a fiberglass seat on a boat when it jumped over a wave. -I started to have EXTREME pains in the base of the left side of my neck. It felt like it was in the BASE of my brain stem. -The only relief was chiropractic adjustments a few times a week. -After two years of this, I just wished I was dead. -A chinese kung fu expert and doctor visited my home town. He did some muxibustion, acupuncture and massages on me, and after 6 treatments, everything started to subside. -Since then every once in awhile I have some pain there, but it gradually got better. -About 4-5 years ago, I had a few bouts of pain in the neck and once got relief by seeing an osteopath did some adjustments on my neck and shoulders. -When I developed blood pressure the ONLY medication I could take was a beta blocker. The others (which open blood vessels) caused headaches and EXTREME pain in the same lower neck area. -Now I am on two "types" of beta blockers, as I was at the limit with the ternomin (100-200 mg) and couldn't take anything else. the other is trandate, as it allows me to take up to 300 mgs (three times a day) -I am allergic to aspirin, NSAID'S, some vitamins, and even a few herbs and spices.. -I have all the side effects of these meds. weight gain, acute eczema and phryisis, swollen ankles with edema. -I have also developed arthritis in my ankles and other joints.This has left me unable to exercise as my knees and ankles really swell up if I try to jog, or even walk for a time on a tread mill. -Recently I have had a few bouts of EXTREMELY painful gout, one that sent me to the ER. (I did the blood test and it showed that I had the high count of uric acid, but no rheumatoid arthritis, although I was previously diagnosed with arthritis especially on my left ankle (old injury) that has had me on crutches quite a few times after playing a few rounds of golf on consecutive days. (Although sometimes I was told it could be gout.) I am starting to feel like a REAL old man, although I played a LOT of sports in my day, including American Football and 20 years of rugby. I stated all of the above facts because I feel that if the problem is not related to my teeth, it must be something to do with the problems from the old injury to the base of my neck, as it is a very similar pain. The questions are: What my problem could possibly be, (or course.) What type of doctor should I see about this? What type of test, scans etc.. can be done to check the old injury site in the base of my neck, (I always thought that it was a pinch nerve (done by a partially dislodged bone?) that was eventually worked free enough to ease the chronic pain, but whenever my blood vessels in that area are opened for any reason, it pinches the nerve that is still partially trapped. -What type of test/scans can be done to check to see if I do have an occlusion in my sinus area, or somewhere in the left side of the blood vessels in my brain? Answered by Zada Raniero 1 year ago.

Hi William, As I was reading this I was thinking of Neuralgia too, as the person before posted. I have attached a link I found on the Internet where you can read about it. If it is Neuralgia, my sister had this real bad about 5 years ago, she was about 30 at the time, pain like you would not beleive, that came in 'attacks' - she actually nearly crashed her car when she slumped over the wheel, so take it easy. Hope you get sorted..... Answered by Valeri Hileman 1 year ago.

Hi there, Im not sure what age you are BUT if the pain and inflammation are one sided , i.e one side of the facial area or head then it is suggestive that the pain is following the path of 1 or more branches of the trigeminal nerve on that affected side of your face. Possibilities are TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA, or if you are older(50+) TEMPORAL ARTERITIS. The latter of these two conditions mentioned is by far the more serious and is sometimes called GIANT CELL ARTERITIS. G.C.A usually carries symptoms similar to yours but also you should look out for symptoms such as pain upon chewing, scalp tenderness( pain when brushing hair) and in some cases you can actually physically examine the arteries on the temples(side of the head) and they may physically look swollen. You have detailed a quite complex medical history here but i would say that all the symptoms your having may not all have the same source. I would suggest your HBP and relevant meds to be irrelevant. I would go straight to a GP and get referred to a neurologist. All my best, John Answered by Mitsue Monrroy 1 year ago.

A few months ago I saw a doctor for chest pains and tightness, shortness of breath, and fatigue. During that visit I had blood work done that concluded that I was anemic as well as a chest x-ray done that came back good. She said my blood pressure was very high and asked if I was stressed. She prescribed me an iron supplement for the anemia and told me to come back for a follow up appointment in a month. About a month later, I went for an eye exam and my blood pressure was extremely high. I went back to my primary care doctor and told her how high it was at the eye doctor and it was only then that she decided to put me on some kind of medication (despite it being high many times when I saw her for other things). She put me on Clonodine and told me to come back in a week. The Clonodine made me feel awful and I could barely stay awake on it. When I went back to see her the following week, my blood pressure was so high that I ended up having to go to the emergency room. She showed a lot of concern that day, called a cab to take me to the hospital since she didn't want me driving, and was really caring and nice. The ER doctor ended up taking me off the Clonodine and prescribed me Trandate instead, which has kept my blood pressure under control. After going to my primary care doctor for a follow up, she said she wasn't sure what else to do and referred me to a cardiologist, who has been absolutely useless. When I ran out of medicine last week and needed to see her to refill my prescription, her receptionist made a mistake in the scheduling of the appointment (made the appointment for Sept 30 instead of Aug 1) and refused to let me see her. Since I was visiting my parents that weekend, I saw their doctor instead who provided me with much better care and seemed much more knowledgeable than any of the doctors I've seen up by me. My doctor's a really nice person and has shown a lot of concern, but I think in some ways she's a little negligent. When I went in initially for the chest pains and chest tightness and had high blood pressure, she didn't seem to be concerned about that. Since my blood pressure has been under control, I haven't had any more chest pains or tightness, so I now know that was a symptom of my blood pressure being high. What do you guys think of this doctor? Good? Bad? Trying her best? Like I said, she's really nice but my family's upset that she didn't do anything about my blood pressure until I brought it up.

Pre-term labor question??? Twins?
I forgot to add, the On-call doctor decided not to prescribe the Terbutaline pills to me after she saw my reaction. I guess it scared them. I have asthma and they wouldnt let me use my inhaler when I was short of breath. It was scary. Asked by Agnes Hrabovsky 1 year ago.

Hello to all :) I am 34 weeks pregnant with twins. I went into pre-term labor 2 weeks ago. I was advised to go to the hospital and did. They were advised by an on-call doctor at my dr office, to give me 2 bags of IV fluid and to give me 2 shots of Terbutalene and 1 Terbutalene pill to take. Well, I started having complications from the medicines. My heart started racing, and I couldnt breathe, I also had severe chest pain and they had to perform 2 EKG's. They later released me to the ER where I was placed on oxygen for an hour until my heart rate returned to normal. My contractions did stop that day but have been ongoing ever since. I have been having "real" contractions, not Braxton Hicks. I have no idea if I have dialated. Basically my Dr. wants me to go to the hospital and get more of the medicine that almost killed me so they can stop the contractions. I know I have the right to not take it. I feel like if its time, its time. How would you handle this with your dr? Answered by Darius Turay 1 year ago.

This is YOUR pregnancy and you need to do what you feel is right. If this stuff nearly killed you, it may happen again. You dying is not going to help those babies! Talk to your doctor about options. If he won't be cooperative, ask if you can talk to someone else for a second opinion. Ask if they can try a different medication. If not, weigh the pros and cons of delivering now or attempting to take the medication again. It's always better if the babies are delivered full term but many babies have been delivered at 34 weeks due to preterm labor or complications with the mother, baby(s), and/or pregnancy. Although they have a higher risk of complications, it is sometimes necessary to do this and many are just fine. My own siblings (twins) were delivered at 34 weeks and spent a couple weeks in the NICU. No complications other than they were small and needed help breathing for a few days. They're now 26 years old and perfectly normal. Good luck and I hope things work out for you. Congratulations on your twins! Answered by Clare Mintor 1 year ago.

I stated all of the above facts because I feel that if the problem is not related to my teeth, it must be something to do with the problems from the old injury to the base of my neck, as it is a very similar pain. The questions are: What my problem could possibly be, (or course.) What type of doctor should I see about this? What type of test, scans etc.. can be done to check the old injury site in the base of my neck, (I always thought that it was a pinch nerve (done by a partially dislodged bone?) that was eventually worked free enough to ease the chronic pain, but whenever my blood vessels in that area are opened for any reason, it pinches the nerve that is still partially trapped. -What type of test/scans can be done to check to see if I do have an occlusion in my sinus area, or somewhere in the left side of the blood vessels in my brain?

Hi William, As I was reading this I was thinking of Neuralgia too, as the person before posted. I have attached a link I found on the Internet where you can read about it. If it is Neuralgia, my sister had this real bad about 5 years ago, she was about 30 at the time, pain like you would not beleive, that came in 'attacks' - she actually nearly crashed her car when she slumped over the wheel, so take it easy. Hope you get sorted..... Answered by Kirby Masaitis 1 year ago.

Hi there, Im not sure what age you are BUT if the pain and inflammation are one sided , i.e one side of the facial area or head then it is suggestive that the pain is following the path of 1 or more branches of the trigeminal nerve on that affected side of your face. Possibilities are TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA, or if you are older(50+) TEMPORAL ARTERITIS. The latter of these two conditions mentioned is by far the more serious and is sometimes called GIANT CELL ARTERITIS. G.C.A usually carries symptoms similar to yours but also you should look out for symptoms such as pain upon chewing, scalp tenderness( pain when brushing hair) and in some cases you can actually physically examine the arteries on the temples(side of the head) and they may physically look swollen. You have detailed a quite complex medical history here but i would say that all the symptoms your having may not all have the same source. I would suggest your HBP and relevant meds to be irrelevant. I would go straight to a GP and get referred to a neurologist. All my best, John Answered by Donnell Murril 1 year ago.

Sounds like an inflammation. Don't blow your nose too hard (ears can get it, too). Skip exercises & workouts for now. Any fever? Ask about Tylenol. If no better in 7 days, see a Nurse Practitioner. Answered by Ada Egloff 1 year ago.

A few months ago I saw a doctor for chest pains and tightness, shortness of breath, and fatigue. During that visit I had blood work done that concluded that I was anemic as well as a chest x-ray done that came back good. She said my blood pressure was very high and asked if I was stressed. She prescribed me an iron supplement for the anemia and told me to come back for a follow up appointment in a month. About a month later, I went for an eye exam and my blood pressure was extremely high. I went back to my primary care doctor and told her how high it was at the eye doctor and it was only then that she decided to put me on some kind of medication (despite it being high many times when I saw her for other things). She put me on Clonodine and told me to come back in a week. The Clonodine made me feel awful and I could barely stay awake on it. When I went back to see her the following week, my blood pressure was so high that I ended up having to go to the emergency room. She showed a lot of concern that day, called a cab to take me to the hospital since she didn't want me driving, and was really caring and nice. The ER doctor ended up taking me off the Clonodine and prescribed me Trandate instead, which has kept my blood pressure under control. After going to my primary care doctor for a follow up, she said she wasn't sure what else to do and referred me to a cardiologist, who has been absolutely useless. When I ran out of medicine last week and needed to see her to refill my prescription, her receptionist made a mistake in the scheduling of the appointment (made the appointment for Sept 30 instead of Aug 1) and refused to let me see her. Since I was visiting my parents that weekend, I saw their doctor instead who provided me with much better care and seemed much more knowledgeable than any of the doctors I've seen up by me. My doctor's a really nice person and has shown a lot of concern, but I think in some ways she's a little negligent. When I went in initially for the chest pains and chest tightness and had high blood pressure, she didn't seem to be concerned about that. Since my blood pressure has been under control, I haven't had any more chest pains or tightness, so I now know that was a symptom of my blood pressure being high. What do you guys think of this doctor? Good? Bad? Trying her best? Like I said, she's really nice but my family's upset that she didn't do anything about my blood pressure until I brought it up.

Pre-term labor question??? Twins?
I forgot to add, the On-call doctor decided not to prescribe the Terbutaline pills to me after she saw my reaction. I guess it scared them. I have asthma and they wouldnt let me use my inhaler when I was short of breath. It was scary. Asked by Normand Horky 1 year ago.

Hello to all :) I am 34 weeks pregnant with twins. I went into pre-term labor 2 weeks ago. I was advised to go to the hospital and did. They were advised by an on-call doctor at my dr office, to give me 2 bags of IV fluid and to give me 2 shots of Terbutalene and 1 Terbutalene pill to take. Well, I started having complications from the medicines. My heart started racing, and I couldnt breathe, I also had severe chest pain and they had to perform 2 EKG's. They later released me to the ER where I was placed on oxygen for an hour until my heart rate returned to normal. My contractions did stop that day but have been ongoing ever since. I have been having "real" contractions, not Braxton Hicks. I have no idea if I have dialated. Basically my Dr. wants me to go to the hospital and get more of the medicine that almost killed me so they can stop the contractions. I know I have the right to not take it. I feel like if its time, its time. How would you handle this with your dr? Answered by Mariela Deffibaugh 1 year ago.

This is YOUR pregnancy and you need to do what you feel is right. If this stuff nearly killed you, it may happen again. You dying is not going to help those babies! Talk to your doctor about options. If he won't be cooperative, ask if you can talk to someone else for a second opinion. Ask if they can try a different medication. If not, weigh the pros and cons of delivering now or attempting to take the medication again. It's always better if the babies are delivered full term but many babies have been delivered at 34 weeks due to preterm labor or complications with the mother, baby(s), and/or pregnancy. Although they have a higher risk of complications, it is sometimes necessary to do this and many are just fine. My own siblings (twins) were delivered at 34 weeks and spent a couple weeks in the NICU. No complications other than they were small and needed help breathing for a few days. They're now 26 years old and perfectly normal. Good luck and I hope things work out for you. Congratulations on your twins! Answered by Roxie Khong 1 year ago.

From my understanding twins ussually come early and are smaller anyways. My husband is a twin. They were born at 32 weeks and weighed about 3.5 lbs a piece and are both fine. When I first found out I was pregnant I was wondering if it was twins seeing as how it runs in both our families, and had asked him about it. Althogh 37 weeks is "full term" He also said that technology is so advance that babies are surviving at 20+ weeks. I would think bue to your reaction to the meds last time that theywould never give it to you again and putit on file that it is not for you! If your contractions are real close together and you are thinking it is time I would jsut go strait to the hospital tell them tht theycan not stop your labor with the meds because this happened 2 weeks ago with it, and they hopefully will listen! Some er docs I learned are alot better in these situations than your doc that wants you to wait. Good luk and congrats on the twins. I hope you find a way to relax and sooth yourself until that point! Answered by Suellen Killin 1 year ago.

If you are having strong, frequent contractions, there is no question about it, you need to go in and be checked. People confuse braxton hicks, thinking they are "fake", but they can feel very strong at times. It's possible you haven't dilated enough to worry about it yet. If you are in labor, and they can't give you anything else to stop contractions, maybe they can go ahead and check on the twins via ultrasound to see how they are doing. It's possible that a delivery at this point could be ok. After all 34 weeks isn't all that early for twins anyway. Answered by Lani Ladage 1 year ago.

My cousin took the same medicine & could hardly breath when she took them. 34 wks for twins is good, but the longer u go the better the chance that their lungs have matured, and they won't be in the nicu. I was 37 wks w/ a single baby and contractions & they would not deliver me either. My Dr. said 38 weeks plus for the babies lungs. If u feel u r contracting, go to the Dr. and get checked right away,don't take chances. Dr.'s don't want to do anything until they actually see you. I think they r so used to their job they forget u r the one going through this & its all new to u. Congratulations on the twins & making it to 34wks Answered by Loni Trenkle 1 year ago.

Signs of preterm labor: Call your midwife or doctor right away if you're having any of the following symptoms in your second or third trimester (before 37 weeks): • An increase in vaginal discharge • A change in the type of discharge — if it becomes watery, mucus-like, or bloody (even if it's pink or just tinged with blood) • Any vaginal bleeding or spotting • Abdominal pain, menstrual-like cramping, or more than four contractions in one hour (even if they don't hurt) • An increase in pressure in the pelvic area (a feeling that your baby is pushing down) • Low back pain, especially if you didn't previously have back pain These symptoms can be confusing because some of them, such as pelvic pressure or low back pain, occur during normal pregnancies, too, and sporadic early contractions may just be Braxton Hicks contractions. But it's always better to be safe than sorry, so call your midwife or doctor right away if you're experiencing anything unusual. Answered by Earnest Raddatz 1 year ago.

My 2nd pregnancy was twins, I also had preterm labor at 32wks, was given meds to stop it...it's common for those meds to make your heart race just not the chest pain. I went into labor again at 34wks 5days and they let me deliver that time. Twins were great weights and extremely healthy. I don't know why on earth she'd give you those meds again but if you're in labor and having real contractions that are regular you need to go in. If they are real but irregular then you should be fine, ,maybe jsut call and let them know? If I were you I wouldn't take the meds again especially not at this point. Answered by Versie Steeby 1 year ago.

I had twins and early contractions 30 weeks. my specialist put me on bed rest and gave me the same stuff. It made my heart race, but that's it. I was told it was OK to go into labor at 34 weeks. I did go into labor at 34 weeks and 3 days and they delivered me. Is there a reason they wont deliver you now? Or is there something else they can give you because you had such a bad reaction. Answered by Armando Spurbeck 1 year ago.

I would talk to your doc and tell him your concerns. I think that it is your right not to take it. Just remember that you have two little ones inside you and the longer they stay there the better off they are. Congrats and Good Luck Answered by Classie Winborne 1 year ago.

Please help ten points for the best answer...what are the 38 drugs that can cause drug induced lupus?
Asked by Moshe Lawry 1 year ago.

Please note that this list is only partial - there now appear to be at least 70 meds which can cause DILE or DIL, drug-induced Lupus Erythematosis Atenolol (Tenormin) Captopril (Capoten) Carbamazepine Chlorpromazine HCl (Thorazine) Clonidine HCl (Catapres) Danazol (Danocrine) Diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren) Disopyramide (Norpace) Ethosuximide (Zarontin) Gold compounds Griseofulvin Hydralazine HCl (Apresoline) Ibuprofen Interferon alfa Isoniazid (Laniazid, Nydrazid) Labetalol HCl (Normodyne, Trandate) Leuprolide acetate (Lupron) Levodopa (Dopar, Larodopa) Lithium carbonate Lovastatin (Mevacor) Mephenytoin (Mesantoin) Methyldopa (Aldomet) Methysergide maleate (Sansert) Minoxidil (Loniten, Rogaine) Nalidixic acid (NegGram) Nitrofurantoin (Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin) Oral contraceptives Penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen) Penicillin Phenelzine sulfate (Nardil) Phenytoin sodium (Dilantin) Prazosin (Minipress) Primidone (Mysoline) Procainamide HCl (Procan, Pronestyl) Promethazine HCl (Anergan, Phenergan) Propylthiouracil Psoralen Quinidine Spironolactone (Aldactone) Streptomycin sulfate Sulindac (Clinoril) Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine) Tetracycline Thioridazine HCl (Mellaril) Timolol maleate (Betimol, Timoptic) Tolazamide (Tolinase) Tolmetin sodium (Tolectin) Trimethadione (Tridione) One thing I happened to notice is that several meds used to treat Parkinson's disease are in this list. And the problem is that although Lupus is not curable, in DILE, the symptoms are reversible once the medications are discontinued. Of course in PD, that might not be possible, The most common problems are caused by only a handful of the above. Answered by Latashia Karg 1 year ago.
