Pins & Needles... Nerve Pain From Hysingla?Updated
I have been taking this for 2 months now starting at 20 and now at 30 and I've been waking up (sometimes after only 4 or 5 hours sleep) with severe pain in my fingers, hands and sometimes my arms!? I don't see an exact pattern it seems to be more random. Has anyone else noticed similar effects when taking this medication? Maybe it was more so in the beginning, I should have written it down it was very frightening and painful ??.
Since my last post I have experienced an alarming event with my fingers turning white and painful and it turns out it's something called Raynaud's syndrome. You kind of Google it, it is exactly what happened to me twice now since my last post. The vessels close and basically stop circulation to the fingers at last at 30 mins the first time n 15 mins the second time. I ran my hands under very warm water the second time (because I was then aware of what was happening). This seem to speed up the recovery the second time. Raynaud's is linked to various medications although this one wasn't mentioned specifically.
Today my waking pain is worse than usual and the pins and needles are starting in May left hand (I just think I have a pinched nerve in my neck with this morning hand pain). My children are all home from school for a snow day & let's just say we're not off to a good start here by any means.
I guess I should call the doctor but it's so hard to actually talk to anyone at that special the office. As I think I'll take a breakthrough medication and call the office to see if I can be seen sooner. And also thinking I should maybe call the pharmacist.
What I need is a cure for inflammation and yes I take tummeric and boswellia.
That's not it for now I have boys to tend to and pains to concur.
Raynaud's can be very painful and annoying, I suffer from it myself and have to be careful about any medications I take that could make it worse. I was on one that caused my fingers and toes to go numb even if it was 70, or 80 degrees out. I had no idea what it was, until I went to my cardiology appointment and was given a name for the issue. If you suspect you have it, it is very important to consult your doctor about it, because if it gets severe, it could result in your having to have amputations.

But the FDA has warned that this medication has been known to cause pain as a side effect in some people that take it, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.
How are you doing? Has there been any change?
Re: Verwon (# 2)
Do you know which specialist addresses Raynaud's? You mentioned Cardiologist, is it because the vessels are constricted during episodes? You also mentioned that sometimes you have the pain but no change in color to the fingers; I also have this pain but I thought it was a pinched nerve or lack of circulation ( then I do some ankle movements that promote circulation). I didn't realize that they may be coorelated to the Raynaud's. Thanks again for sharing. I have a feeling that I need to stop this medication.
Re: Abbs chronic pain (# 3)
I too have Reynauds syndrome..it seems to be more prevalent with females. I discovered the problem while after taking a blood pressure medication. I have chronic pain in my back due to a severe fall that fractured several vertebrae and take 4-5 percocets daily. I have been trying to decide whether to start hysingia ER . Your post has convinced me that it would not be a good idea. I have tried so many things...alternative treatments.. therapy of all kinds, mental and physical. My life is constantly a search to find a way to help with the pain.
