Diabetes :: Glucophage Can Change Personality ?

Apr 14, 2014

almost two weeks ago I was diagnosed with PCOS and the doctor gave me Glucophage and I started it right away

she said that my hormones are normal .. but she tested me the last day of my period (the 8th day)

right after I took Glucophage .. I noticed changes in my personality

I'm not intense as I used to be ... I take things more freely

I also feel sorry for everybody .. not really sorry but mercy? I don't know but I feel I want to help everybody

my sex drive also is up

and some other changes too

and I don't feel like myself .. it feels weird

it feels like there is a difference

I'm wondering can it cause these changes?

Diabetes :: Insulin Preferred Over Glucophage GDM

I am a diabetic and have been for about 8 years.  Used to be able to manage my diabetes by diet and walking 30 minutes a day but now that I have been to the doctor for my checkup, I am going on glucophage.  So I am wondering though, isn't insulin usually preferred over glucophage GDM?  I am just wondering if I shouldn't just go to insulin since I will end up on it eventually anyway.  Has anyone else been on either or both?  I don't really want to take medicine but insulin is more natural since our bodies make it anyway naturally.  I would rather take what is natural.  I tried to tell the doctor I wanted to be on insulin but to no avail.  What do you guys think?

Diabetes :: Glucophage Aids Weight Loss?

About 2 years ago, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and was prescribed metformin. My mom bought generic met, which I've been taking for almost a year. Well, i'm not religious in taking my medicines to begin with.

Anyway, I was wondering' why I haven't lost weight when those people I know with diabetes naturally lost weight. I've read that glucophage is prescribed to obese patients with Diabetes to help them lose weight. Is this true at all? If it is, what daily dosage is safe to take?

Schizophrenia :: Personality And What Is Pathological

Some things that have happened to me (some older, some more recent) which seem like they could fit into schizophrenia. I am going to a psychiatrist soon, so I will also get a professional's opinion.

I am also interested in which ways your thinking is different from those around you.. as I am not sure what is merely my personality and what is 'pathological'

So this is the list;

- Friend was talking, his voice gradiently silenced and a song started playing instead while his lips were still moving

- I was listening to music from another room and a song I vaguely heard maybe 2 times in my life came on, played through (lyrics, everything) and then ended. I wanted to put on another one, only to notice this one never played, in fact there was silence the whole time.

- I hear people calling me by name when they're not

- I hear people near me say things when they're silent (not sure)

- I saw a small object being thrown and disappear when touching the ground, I followed it with my look and my friends were all staring at me, shocked

- I lose vision sometimes

- I saw my room warp and my roommate grow larger

- My mentality is alien and I've been paranoid since ever

- I dropped acid and realized it's how I feel all the time; my thoughts can inflict physical pain/choking/paranoia or a very good trip, I draw same art sober or not

Anxiety :: Paranoid Personality Disorder

I have a brother with paranoid personality disorder. He was always paranoid as long as I remember. I am 6 years younger then him. Every time when I tried to speak with him he was suspicious about my attentions, it can be rather annoying. But I restrain myself because I am aware of his situation. Since our parents have died he became impossible to talk with. What should I do?

Personality Disorders :: Don't Feel Emotions When I Supposed To

I don't if I supposed to feel like this. I feel emotion but i don't feel it when I'm supposed to. I know when i do something it's bad but I usually don't feel bad. i can't relate to people or know I'm hurting someone emotionally. the only time i cry is when i get hurt. Sounds nerdy but the only thing i like is playing video games and riding by myself on my bike. I don't know. Just hope some comments with questions to ask so I know if this is normal or i'm just weird. I don't know. T

Borderline Personality Disorder :: Keeping A Marriage

23 year old BPD sufferer. I recently got married in August. He's wonderful and willing to weather the storm of my ever changing moods, and awful social skills. My marriage has been so difficult why you might ask? I constantly try to push my husband away. It's pretty much once a month... He has his faults he's been unemployed for eight months. Which causes friction because I'm the sole provider. Also my family thinks he's not contributing enough so they tell me I should leave. As y'all might know we suffer making a decision as it is. So as a result I start stupid fights. Push him to his breaking point, and try to get him back. Which is completely unhealthy. How do I try to keep my emotions in check? Should I get in regular therapy? How do you keep a marriage with constant fear of abandonment?

Personality Disorders :: Confused, Paranoid And Dreaming?

Lately I feel like I'm losing my mind. I suffer with bipolar disorder so I'm use to the ups and downs, im use to anxiety and thoughts about hurting myself but there's something new. I always feel like I'm dreaming. I question reality.. Sometimes I feel like I'm not really here and everything just seems like a movie sorta.. I sometimes get dizzy and a lot of headaches and confusion! My thoughts are strange, I get very paranoid but also get what my therapist says is "delusional" 3 days ago I thought me and my friend were dead and we were invisible and no one could see us and I was in shock but then started to panic because I was scared of being stuck in a in-between world. Then today I got a lot of weird thoughts that I kept trying to stop. Things like "God is doing this. This is what it must feel like to be dead if you kill yourself. You're stuck here! He wants me to know!" And I also stared at a piece of squished gum and a face formed and I was like in a trance and couldn't snap out of it. I'm really scared and I think I'm going mad. Anyone going through this?

Does Norethisterone Change Your Ovulation Day?

Does norethisterone change your ovulation day? I was using the tablets for less than a week to delay my period and came off them and had unprotected intercourse a few days after. If that had been my fertile window before taking the tablets would that still be my window while I was taking them?

How Many Times A Day To Change Colostomy Bag?

I often find I am changing up to 8 times a day not because the bag is full but because my skin sweating causes the adhesive to break down and the leaks begin. This is worse in hot countries and when travelling as I will need to change to make sure I have an empty bag before queuing up for aircraft etc. I also need to change before driving any distance as the seat belt position can cause leaks. Is there anyone out there with a similar problem

Autoimmune Disorders :: Do Your ANA Patterns Change?

So now I feel like a complete hypochondriac. Ladybud (who is fabulous, btw) has helped me tremendously. I am wondering if any of you have had your ANA patterns change. I am having muscle aches, dx with small fiber neuropathy and Raynaud’s, my RBCs and C-reactive protein have been low throughout the last 3 years. I now have been dx with a reactivation of the Epstein Barr virus and alopecia due to “granulomatous Dermatitis” (getting 2nd opinion later this month).

These are my titers and patterns over the years:

10/2011 ANA Titer: 1:320 Pattern: Homogeneous
11/2011 ANA Titer: 1:320 Pattern: Homogeneous
10/2013 ANA Titer: 1:320 Pattern: Homogeneous
5/2014 ANA Titer: 1:160 Pattern: Homogeneous


6/2014 (AVISE SLE 2.0 TESTING (1st time with this test) ANA Titer: 1:80 Pattern: Diffuse fine speckled

Negative on all markers. I am HLA-B27 Positive, but negative for ankylosing spondylitis (AS).

Now my rheumatologist stated all my blood work appears to be normal and I have ZERO autoimmune positivity.

Huh? I feel like such a hypochondriac.

Anxiety :: When People Or Things Change

I get anxiety when people or things change.... even people I do not know.  Today at work I heard that a child who is two years old is on her last days due to numerous problems.  I felt anxiety shoot through my body even though I do not know this child.  I know we all feel sad when we hear something like this but I cannot understand my body reaction to this.  Another example is that there is a house behind me which is now sold and I feel anxiety that they are leaving even though I have never met them and I dont even know their names.  What is this....I don't understand my feelings.

No Change / Improvement In Hearing After Stapedectomy

I was virtually deaf in one ear and very little hearing in the other ear, have worn hearing aids for 25 years. Recently (all happened so quickly, within 6 weeks) got diagnosed with Otosclerosis in both ears. 6 weeks after seeing doctor, i had the op. I had a stapedectomy/stapedotomy on 04/01/2016. Noticed a faint improvement in hearing when lying on the ward after the op, could faintly hear trolleys being moved about. But nothing drastic...... I've had dizziness, (not room spinning dizziness) which now only remains if i read, do jigsaws, scan shop shelves from side to side etc, weird! I've been through the heart pulsating, creaking, the rain dripping onto a metal plate sound etc.

I've had no real explanation of what to expect, i didn't really ask the surgeon any questions as i wasn't sure what would happen after and was unaware i'd have so many unanswered questions come up.

I assumed, and read some on the internet, and was told by a friend who'd had it done, that once the packing was removed, i'd be able to hear. Had packing removed 6 days ago, i'd built myself up SO much, that i stood and sobbed when i still couldn't hear! Surgeon looked a bit puzzled, but he said he wasn't worried at this point and to see him again in 6 weeks and that it'd be fluid behind my ear. He said i need to have some popping before i'll hear.

So, here i am now, with no change in my hearing for the last 6 days. I'm sure when i swallow, i sound as if fluid is in there? I also get like a thunder noise mainly in the morning when i wake up and my throat moves. But what's worrying me most after reading up on the internet again, is when i put headphones on, i can hear the music, (have to have it on loud to hear it), but the loud thumps/beats in the music make my ear crackle like a loose wire on a radio. I read last night that this is because the op hasn't worked and the prosthesis needs tightening/shortening/revising. But then on the other hand i've read that this may be normal?

If i go to do a burp movement when i have music in the headphones, i get a millisecond of a loud noise, but then it goes again as my throat can't seem to hold the noise open if you get what i mean. I have soooo many questions but don't want to bore you with them, maybe later. So, should i be hearing by now, is the crackling loose wire sound normal, and if you have any other advice that might stop me worrying please. I'm just sitting waiting day by day thinking today might be the day that i hear.

Stoma Bag :: How Often Is Necessary To Change Colostomy Wafer?

I had total colectomy and ileostomy five weeks ago and even though I do have some help from my ostomy nurse, I’m now left alone to take care of my stoma bag and I immediately ran into one simple question – how often should I change the wafer? I’ve been changing the bag every three days and when I changed it last time I noticed skin underneath the wafer is reddish, so I’m wondering if I’m changing the wafer too rarely, or am I doing something else wrong? I do first put the protective powder, then the wafer then the pouch, but like I said, the skin underneath the wafer is red and maybe I’m supposed to change it more often?

Eyes :: Macular Pigment Change

So I went to get an eye test today and when the optician viewed the image of the back of my eyes she said there was a small change in the pigment of the macular. She said it can lead to vision loss. She looked at my eyes, did the vision tests and my vision seems okay, apart from being short sighted. She said not to worry, it may have been there all the time but due to my age (35) they don't really look for it but I am to go back for an eye test in a year rather than two. 

Well I did the worst possible thing and googled it which of course came back with macular degeneration and loss of central vision, although all I can find is age related macular degeneration but I'm freaking out. Has anyone else had experience of this, is pigment change something that can always have been there without any degeneration? I suppose if it was serious she would have referred me but I'm wondering if I should make an appointment with the GP?

Degenerative Change Is Present In The Thoracic Spine?

The doctor said the lung tissue is possible (mild) pneumonia. I'm less concerned about that, and I'm being treated with antibiotics. However, I have no idea what "degenerative change is present in the thoracic spine" means. He said nothing about that, but he's an allergy/asthma specialist, so it's not really his field...

Here's what the whole thing says:

"Minimal linear infiltrate is present in the left base. The lungs are otherwise clear. The cardiomediastinal silhouette is normal size and configuration. No pneumothorax or pleural effusion is identified. The pulmonary vascularity is normal. Minimal degenerative change is present in the thoracic spine."
