Migraines :: Why Am I So Sensitive To Smells Suddenly?

Jan 30, 2016

I am a 54 year old female who has suffered from migraines most of my adult life. Smells have been a trigger for them. Lately I smell things no one else does and always followed by a migraine.

Pregnancy :: Nauseous Sensitive To Smells

My sense of smell is so sensitive that I've had to ask my husband to change his deodorant, we've changed our laundry detergent to one without a fragrance, and if anything is seasoned with Italian herbs or herbs in general I become nauseous. Is anyone else sensitive to smells?

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?

Depression :: Stopping Sertraline Suddenly - On Low Dose Currently

I'd been taking 25mg of Sertraline every day for two years for depression. My doctor and I were planning to try to wean me off this summer. But I moved, and so I found a new doctor. However, this one wanted to keep me on the meds and increased my dose. I've been taking 50mg once a day for about two months. But now the new doctor wants me to switch to Wellbutrin. He says I can stop the Sertraline immediately and switch over because I'm on such a low dose. But I'm wondering if that's a good idea. My original doctor had wanted to wean me off the 25mg, and I've noticed that I get really weepy if I miss a dose accidentally.

Mirena Coil - Suddenly Having Crazy Hormones And Bleeding

I've had the mirena coil for just under 2 years. After the initial bleeding my periods more or less stopped I just had the odd light period every few months or so. However, the last 2 month my hormones have been all over the show. Some things are TMI to say on here but I had a light period for about 3 days and then 2 weeks later I came on again and it's now day 9 or 10 of bleeding, it is only light but my boobs have been sore for weeks and there's no signs of it stopping. My coil is still in place so no worries about it being dislodged. I was just wondering if anyone else had been fine with the mirena and then suddenly having crazy hormones and bleeding etc.

Viral Infections :: Fever, Suddenly Nauseated And Puking Bile

I've had a sore throat, and an on and off fever for four days.

At one point it got to 102 degrees, but I took fever reducer and a cold bath, and it quickly went away.

And while my fever has come back several times, it hasn't gone over 100.8 since.

So far I hadn't had any stomach pain and never felt dizzy or nauseated, until suddenly just now after eating some tomato soup, I got light headed and puked like a quart of bile, but not my food.

Now My ears burn and they trickled a little bit of clear sticky liquid [pretty sure it was bile], and everything looks a little blurry because my eyes won't stop watering.

I'm pretty sure my fever's gone, but I can't balance well enough to make my way to the thermometer to check for certain.

General :: Sensitive Gag Reflex

Ok I'm 19 years old and I think my health is good. Anyways, my gag reflex started one day after I was eating and I just looked at the food I was eating and suddenly didn't want it. At first it was just when I would brush my teeth and after using mouthwash, I would usually cough and heave or spit out water. And now I have noticed that after I eat, I can feel my gag reflex. Like I can feel that there is food stuck there (it's probably not, but I can feel something nasty there), and one time I touched my throat (outside neck area) and I wanted to vomit. Now I have an issue sometimes with the front of my shirt collar touching my neck area, because I feel suffocated and it makes the food feeling even worse.

I do salt gargling sometimes, but I still have it! Any help? I also get stomach aches more frequently now (I have gotten 3 so far in these past months and have thrown up.)

Balanitis? Penis Tip Is Red And Sensitive For Years

Ever since I could remember the tip of my penis has been very sensitive to touch, even if I realize that uncircumcised mens' penises are somewhat sensitive to the touch, mine is like borderline impossible to feel without getting extreme discomfort. It's also quite reddish almost all the time. For quite a few years I know I wasn't cleaning it properly, and up until a couple years ago I know I had some smegma under the foreskin that I was too hesitant to peel off due to the pain. A couple years ago I finally decided to do it and got all of it off, and now I can pull the foreskin all the way back, but the discomfort is still there. I started using a balanitis cream thinking it would help, but it hasn't really done much. Do you have any idea as to what may be going on?

I'm 21 years old right now, if that matters.

Women :: Sore And Sensitive Clitoris After Fingering

Overly Sensitive Tastebuds To Taste And Pain

Ever since I can remember my tastebuds have been very sensitive to taste and to pain. For instance whenever I drink a fizzy drink I have to stir it around a lot because otherwise it hurts to drink it and I can't eat spicy foods without extreme pain to my tongue (even mildly spicy). I can also taste things in food and drinks that others can't, such as limescale in water and pesticides used on vegetables. I was wondering if there was a name for this or if it was a condition or something, also I would like to know if anyone else has this problem so I know I'm not alone.

Sexual Health :: Overly Sensitive Clitoris?

I'm 21 and have been sexually active since I was 15. For as long as I can remember, I've had a clitoris that is way too sensitive to touch. It's very easily irritated by my pants digging into it, etc. I ride horses (jumping) and a lot of times I have to wear a pantiliner just to keep my pants from rubbing against it uncomfortably. I can't even touch it myself. The only thing that ever truly touches it is the water in the bathtub.

I've instructed partners (including my current boyfriend) to avoid directly touching it as much as possible. As long as they touch around it, I'm fine and things are great. But if they get too close, that extreme, intense sensitivity ruins the mood for me. It's almost painful, if that makes sense.
(Sex is still very enjoyable for me, so that isn't an issue.)

But is there anything I can do, or is this just the way that I was "wired," so to speak?

Polymyalgia Rheumatica And GCA :: Very Depressed, Overly Sensitive

This is my second bout of PMR.  The first time I really did not experience any side effects of the pred...with the exception of small weight gain and slightly moon faced. 

I have been back on pred for 2 months.  Started at 20mg.  I am now down to 15 mg.  I will be reducing by 1 mg / month until I reach 10 mg.  Then I will reduce by 1/2 mg/month.

Anyway, I am having a very difficult time with depression this time.  I am usually a pretty upbeat person, but I find myself sinking.  I am so unhappy,

I am also starting to have 'mild' suicidal thoughts.. aka maybe I should just take the whole bottle of Attivan.   As quick as the thought enters my mind, its gone. 

Adding to this PMR...my husband passed away 8 yrs ago.  I am now feeling like I did in the 2-3 yrs after. I am 62 yrs old. The only thing that keeps me going are my 9 grandkids.  The problem is that I have built my whole life around only these guys.  Prior to PMR and pred, I was doing fine.

Anyway...has anyone else experienced this. And if so what did you do?

I keep telling myself to stop feeling sorry for myself and move on.

I have no pain, Thank God.  It's just the head confusion, lack of focus and now depression.

Dental Health :: Sensitive Tooth, Abscess

Recently, I visited a dentist , and my teeth were cleaned. I was asked to be repeating that every six month. However, after the visit, a tooth became very sensitive to anything that touches it, whether hot or cold, or even ordinary water, a kind of pain sends me jumping.

I went back to the Dentist and he directed for an X-ray on the affected tooth. The X-ray showed a hole in between the teeth(an abscess). Some drugs were given to me( Amoxicillin 500mg; Flagyl 400mg; Cata? 50mg) which I have taken for some days. The pains are still there, and the dentist says the tooth will have to be removed, which I do not like at all! Instead, I have decided to to start brushing my teeth twice a day using Sensodyne toothpaste, and Listerine Mouthwash, twice a day. Doctor, will the alternative procedure that I have prescribed for myself eventually save me from the removal of the tooth, which I very much detest?

Phimosis :: Glans Super Sensitive After Circumcision

I'm 25 and have struggled with phimosis for most of my life. I had never been able to see my glans before as they were always covered. During an erection I still could not get them exposed and wearing a condom was just so painful so yes, still a virgin at 25.
Recently I went to the doctor and got circumcised to correct this. Its been 3 days now, still have the stitches there and the pain is ok (except for the occassional erection). My main problem is the glans..they are super sensitive,even passing a cloth there sends me to hell and back. And they are bright red in colour and swollen. How can I desensitize them?

Hepatitis C :: Sovaldi And Olysio For Q80 Sensitive Patients?

The past 9 weeks I treated with olysio and sovaldi. They stopped at 9 weeks. The test came back at week 8 still positive. Tx was stopped. Geno 1A, Past biopsies showed stage 1 mild fibrosis. In 2010 they didn't get a good sample but told me it was probably still stage 1, but not sure. Now after an ultrasound that's "suggestive" of cirrhosis I fear after failed tx the progression will bring me down even quicker. Anybody have any GOOD info that olysio/sovaldi speeds up the virus progression? Dr.says no. Have been positive for 50 years. Since 1999 I have lived a very healthy lifestyle. For most of the years I supplemented and took the herbs to keep my liver in as good of shape as I could until a "cure" came along. So much for that idea. I never did the interf/riba. The past couple years for some reason I stopped taking my supplements, (glutathione raising supplies etc) I used to be a member of a group that was alternative oriented, then I stopped that. I did the q80 variance test and it was positive, and so I went ahead with the tx. My question is: Is this new drug coming out only for those who weren't sensitive to the q80? Or is it supposed to take care of tough bugs like mine? Im hopeful I will be eligible for the new tx. Im 68 now. I am starting to experience symptoms, unpleasant symptoms. Good days/bad days. Sorry for rambling but I saw Blue Metals comment about disease progression after failed tx and it kinda spooked me.

Pizotifen :: Still Having Migraines

I have had migraines since i was 12 (I'm almost 28 now) and over the years they have become increasingly frequent. It got to the stage where i was having 4-5 severe ones a week. I'm a medical student so this was REALLY getting in the way of life and i just used to wander round in a painkiller induced daze or be forced to collapse in bed.

A few weeks ago I came to the end of my tether. despite being on beta blockers and antidepressants and armed with seriously strong painkillers and all sorts of things like sumatriptan i was still completely incapacitated with a 4 day migraine. So i took the plunge and tried the pizotifen 1.5mg given by by GP.

Three days went by with no migraine... then a small migraine then another 4 day whopper probably more severe than before which knocked me out cold for the whole weekend and beyond. I've been on the pizotifen for 2 weeks now and low and behold today - another migraine.

Migraines :: What Are Common Symptoms?

I'm only 23, but I hope someone will take me seriously.

I've had a constant headache for about four weeks. It kind of fades in and out, but is still always there. I've had streaking pains in my head for about a year. There is also a spot on top of my head that sometimes feels like someone is drilling a hole in it, and I sometimes get this with the headaches. The top of my head is sensitive to the touch in some spots.

Also, I've had stomach problems for about two years now, and the doctors can't figure out what it is. I've had just about every test done, and everything says I'm fine. But I get nauseated and sometimes throw up after every time I eat, and sometimes when I just smell something bad or think something is going to taste bad.

I also have a very bad short-term memory and dizziness. I also can't keep my balance a lot. I've noticed some changes in my personality/thinking patterns. I keep thinking it's my bipolar disorder, though my psychiatrist is not sure I even have that. Anyway, I get very paranoid, I'm very obsessive and impulsive. I also have this thing with my speech where I sound like I'm dyslexic, but I've never had that until all these other things started happening. Oh, and I've had episodes of non-stop emotion/incessant crying and episodes of no emotion whatsoever.

The question I have is does any of this sound like something you're going through or symptoms?

Headaches / Migraines :: How Long Do They Last For?

When you get headaches, how long do they last for? I've had a pretty constant one for about a month! Sometimes it goes away at parts during the day, but it has been pretty constant. Its very dull and always in the same spot at the back of my head. Like me thinking about them constantly probably doesn't allow them to go away either.

I just fear a brain tumor! Can tension headaches last a very long time and be constant?
