Can Sopadol Cause Tinnitus

I have used Solpadol soluble for many years and now have a loud machine like buzzing in one ear and deafness, at least I think its one ear? This buzz is continuous also I struggle to hear if a group of people are in the same room talking it can also be painfull.Can SOLPADOL SOLUBLE cause Tinnitus?? If there is no medical evidence doctors just dismiss the possibility when asked. Also I have read that Botox could help Tinnitus anyone else read this? Rgds David ## I get this too for exactly the same reasons. Did you ever get to the bottom of it? ## I too have developed a high-pitched hissing in one ear from using solpadol for the last three years. if you stop does it go away or is the damage permanent?

Medication suggestions, please, for tremors

Question. Anyone have a stroke and a couple months afterward develop a palsy like tremor. Is there a med to treat this? My left side, affected by the stroke, later developed a terrible palsy, for lack of word. This includes the shoulder, shoulder blade left leg. Used to cut hair. Can't anymore. Can barely butter my toast without crushing it. Can't hold a beverage in left hand. Would a parkinsons drug help me? Very disabling. If I had some idea what medication may help control this I could propose such to my primary care doctor. I try, at all cost to stay away from specialists. Too many doctors. The idea that it was not there right after stroke, suggests something happened neurologically after coming home. What drug controls tremors in parkinsons? This is embarrassing, especially...

Botox and migraines

I have chronic migraines,7/24/365. This condition is kept to a manageable level by Lyricaand Effexor. However, both of these drugs have been causing serious side effects to, like short term memory problems, shortness of breath, and more. I am very sensitive to drugs in general, and have tried other meds with little success. Botox has been suggested as an alternative . Has anyone had e perience with Botox or any other med which would be better? Thanks! ## The most likely culprit in this case is Lyrica, since it is an anticonvulsant that can also help with other conditions, the FDA does warn that it can cause memory issues, dry mouth, dizziness, mood changes, and weight changes. However, Botox can also cause side effects, such as administration site reactions, swelling, redness, and atrop...

Treating rectal and urethral tightness along with pain

I am male, 40yrs old, having urinary issues since 2009. I started with frequent urination which then led to irritation, pain and difficulty to pass urine. I have undergone urodynamics (found poor flow, suspected detrusor muscles dysfunction) and was given medications. Becoming worse, I had gone in for a sonography, CT scan which found no issues with my prostate and kidneys. Then a cystoscopy, bladder distention performed, even treated for interstitial cystitis, no improvement. Later an inj. of Botox was administered inside the bladder, but still no improvement. Then rectal dilation was done to relax the sphincter muscle, but nothing helped. Now I have some new issues: I can't defecate easily, I feel the pain in my rectal region for hours and at the same time I have pain in my urethr...

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Studying this subject. It is a poorly understood disease. The only real specialist in the USA is Dr. Robert Schwartzman. He is in Philadelphia and Dean of Neurology at Drexel University. ## I have no doubt that you are correct and I'm also sure that just like with Fibromyalgia, there are still doctors that do not believe it exists and that this results in some patients being misdiagnosed and their disease being poorly managed. Here's the link to a pretty comprehensive article on it, as well as source references with more information: Are there any other comments or questions? ## I was diagnosed with that complex regional pain syndrom after my accident. The ironic thing is I had heard someone talking about on TV a few years prior to my accident and I was like, just another way to...

Nerve Shield

I suffer with TMJ disorder. I am taking acetyl l-carnitine, probiotics, and nerve shield. None of this seems to be helping me. I don't know what else to do. Please help me!!! ## Hi Tee, I'm so sorry to hear that these supplements haven't been working for you. Did a doctor recommend that you take these supplements? Based on my research, the best supplements for TMJ are ones that will reduce inflammation of the jaw as well as relax the muscles. All of the supplements you've mentioned seem great, but I don't quite understand how they can be effective for TMJ. Have you tried any other treatments like acupuncture or essential oils? The essential oils lavender and chamomile may help you to relax and release the tension in your jaw. Also, copaiba oil has immense anti- infla...
