Evorel Conti Stopped But Spotting And Pain Like Periods

After being advised by my GP a few months ago to stop my Evorel conti (I was using half a patch) my symptoms returned with full force. So I put back the full patch 50micrograms. I have been experiencing spotting and period like pains, breast tenderness and slight headaches. I am attributing this to upping my dose of Evorel. I was actually doing fine on my half a patch. I have started to trim down the 50 patch now and see if that helps.

Menopause :: Period - One Year Post-menopause

Three weeks ago, to my great surprise, I started to bleed after one year. The 2-3 weeks preceding this, my breasts were so sore, I was bloated and I has the typical "stringy" discharge that I used to get before my period. I was really not expecting another period but the bleeding was heavy and lasted for just over a week.

I saw my doctor a few days ago and she that she is obliged to send me for an ultrasound and possible biopsy if the lining looks thick. She said she is not worried but I am freaking out.

Can anyone share a similar experience? I read on one website that it is actually possible to ovulate and have a period after you stop menstruating for a year. I have not had any spotting - just this one "period". Of course, everything I have read says how abnormal it is to bleed after menopause and now I'm scared that there is something serious going on. My ultrasound is booked for two days from now.

Stopping Heroin Is Just The Start

Heroin is something that no-one journey is the same,the effects it has on your life may be same but to go though and come out the other side clean..yes in fairy land. Yes you can, but to get there is more than any words could describe. Its hard work the ones with family's supporting them may be a help but to most its just a suicide mission. I went though it dragged my family with me,but to no avail it wasn't cos I couldn't care less it was a matter of survival for me I couldn't cope with normal everyday duties. My Dad died and instead of being with my family I ran away it couldn't be true it was a lie I just wouldn't except it .

My world was shattered and no-one around to help -depression sunk its teeth in and wouldn't let go. That was 2 years 9 months ago ,today I am street drug free,on a maintenance regime with a network of out-reach programs with all the aspects of my life being worked on, its hard work, not for the faint hard it its got to come from you the one its destroying to take control, if I can have a life I want one that's got a future to look and plan for.I have been the lowest any human-being could get and crawled out of the huge hole I put myself in. that's the point"ADMITTING IT WAS YOU " no-one else. I wish you luck,and I give you hope,that you too can do what I did .its staying clean thats the hard part ,one step at a time and no matter how long it takes that no interest do it in time for you not to a time-table. Thankyou for reading ,hope it helps one person that'll do for me.

Stopping Smoking After 37 Years

I smoked for 37 years from the age of nine. I have tried to quit many times but can say now in hindsight that I never really tried, I just pretended to myself that I was trying. Some times I stopped smoking and had a cigarette less than an hour later but made up an excuse and continued to "try" stopping. I never actually admitted to failing until I was back on my usual 20 or 30 a day.

In January I decided to give it a go again but this time I went to a stop smoking group. This will not work for all people but it did for me so I am happy. Somebody at the group came out with the idea that everyone at the group should get into their heads that the minute you have 1 cigarette then you have failed. I am a naturally competitive person and this really worked in gettting me motivated. I did not want to be the one that failed.

In the group we were given help with products and I chose to use patches and lozenges. I used the patches for 6 weeks and the lozenges for about 12 but do not use either now. There seems to be this perception amongst internet posters that if you use stop smoking products then you didn't do it properly and its far better to stop "cold turkey" Personally I think it's the result that counts not how you get there.

I have now gone almost 8 months without a cigarette and still get the cravings now and again. But I just keep saying to myself "if you have 1 cigarette you have failed".

22 And Stopping Use Of Blood Thinners

Let me just start with the fact that I am 22 years old and have been told Iwould be on blood thinners for life. Nobody at this age wants to hear that. And it may sound selfish, but me and my husband look forward to having another child. However, doing so while on blood thinners would mean injecting myself every day for nine months. Not okay for me.

This all started when I had my child. 10 days after having him, I had a bad pain in my lower back that I related to sciatica pain. However, something in me told me to see a doctor. I was diagnosed with having a blood clot in a major vein in my leg. Scary. I was put on warfarin and was told it would be for no more than 9 months. I work as a supervisor with my job, so taking my medicine on time and every day fo r hat matter was hard because I was working 3 different shifts in one week. 5 months after my first clot, I went to work and my arm started feeling tingly. Went to the doctor and they discovered a small clot in my arm. I was then told I would be on blood thinners for life and switched to xarelto because they thought it would be better for me. They ran tests to find out why I had clotted to begin with, and he ONLY thing they found was that it was due to y pregnancy. They could not find anything wrong with my blood. Only thing abnormal was my protein level and they said that was perfectly normal. So now its been 15 months since the first clot, and a year since the second.

Me and my husband would like to have another child. So my question is, has anyone ever (even in a pregnancy related clot) stopped taking their blood thinner? If so, how is your health now?

Sertraline :: Stopping Propranolol Suddenly?

I've been taking propranolol since the end of March - just 10 mg per day and then I've been taking 50mg sertraline per day for 3 weeks. I had been complaining of awful neck pains and general muscle aches but today, I forgot to take my propranolol and the aches and pains haven't been there. Has anyone else stopped taking propranolol suddenly? Can this have a bad reaction as I was on such a low dose?

I have been getting hot/warm sensations inside around my chest and different parts of my body for the past couple of days also, is this a part of the sertraline effects?

Pizotifen :: Consequences Of Stopping Sandomigran

I was taking Sandomigrain for 10 plus years (0.5mg per day – I could not increase the dose as it made me too drowsy to function) and decided to slowly wean myself off as I was still having fairly regularly occurring Migraines that included visual and stomach symptoms. Over a period of a year I slowly cut down the 1/2 a tab in size and frequency till finally in December I was Sandomigran free. For the first 3 - 4 months everything was great, I had less migraines and headaches than I had ever had. Then in March, I woke up with an almighty pain in my head in the front half of my head. My blood pressure and pulse kept spontaneously elevating especially when I was asleep. This intense pain lasted for 2 weeks. Since then, I am left with a permanent Migraine which fluctuates in its severity and my brain (the front half) permanently feels as though it is in a contraction. I also have facial numbness and a sense of cold on my front and back periodically. After many tests (which have all come back clear) I am beginning to think that what is happening is a result of stopping the Sandomigran and of its consequential withdrawal. Has anybody else had these symptoms after stopping Sandomigran and if so, do the symptoms ever go away?

Gabapentin :: Stopping The Meds Can Cause Seizures?

Went to see new neurosurgeon on Monday and she has prescribed Gabapentin to add to the mix of my daily cocktail of drugs. Having looked it up though, it seems to have some pretty worrying side effects. For me, as I work full time, I am concerned about being drowsy, sleepy and generally spaced out at work. Apparently it is all magnified if you are also on opiate based painkillers too. I am also concerned that I may pile on the weight!

Can I ask what adverse reactions others have had to this? Also it says on the box that stopping the meds can cause seizures, but is this only in people that have epilepsy (the main reason the drug is prescribed) or can it cause that in people that have never had a history of epilepsy?

By the way, my meds had not changed since May 2007. Nobody has had the slightest interest in monitoring me, either in terms of if they are still suitable, dosage levels, if I am now addicted, if they are working well or even if they are harming my body. Some of the boxes state that you should have regular blood tests but I have never been offered any. Considering I have had two lumbar operations since last May and numerous problems since, it seems quite odd that this has been allowed to go on for so long with not one of the numerous doctors/surgeons giving a damn. I just order the meds from my GP surgery online and then pick up the prescription. That gives a review date, usually 6 monthly intervals, but nobody actually reviews me, they just put a new review date down on the records.

Apart from back pain my main problem these days is the burning/numbness the whole length of my leg and my locked up toes. Apparently the Gabapentin will help with this. But the worse of the problem is at night, hence the fact that I can function reasonably well during the day. But now if these new tablets are going to knock me out and render me incapable during the day, then I'm tempted just not to bother.

All in all the meeting with the new neurosurgeon went quite well. I will be having another MRI shortly (my 6th in 16 months) and hopefully I'll know more then about what is going to happen going forward. The bad news is that she thinks that a lot of the problems are from the internal scarring from the two operations and nothing can be done about that. Hey, ho, I guess I'll find out in time.
