Corticosteroid Kenalog 10 is poison to the body causing nerve damage
| Jeanne bean
Corticosteroid, Kenalog 10 is poison to your body. I had strange sensation in my foot, a year following a bunionectomy osteotomy, The Austin Procedure. I have two screws in the long bone of my first toe. My foot would intermittently feel slight numbness and hypersensitivity when walking barefoot outside on rough surface like dirt. I was concerned. No pain, just irritating feeling in the ball of my foot also, felt like a pebble in my sock. Not painful. I told the doctor I was not in pain, yet he ordered a CT scan and the report came back as a supposed Morton's neuroma. I asked to see the image, so I could see the Morton's neuroma, which in fact the doctor said I had not one, but two of. He told me he had an injection that would help me. I asked if it was a steroid or corticosteroid, and voiced my concern of tissue damage which is caused by any steroid. He assured me that, though it was a corticosteroid, it would not cause tissue damage. I hesitated, numerous times. I said "no, I don't want damage to any tissue in my foot; not any blood vessels or bone. Little did I know. Little do most people here know. The doctor basically strong-armed me into taking the injection, losing his temper and saying "do you want this or not?". I became afraid, but instead of running (he was blocking the door, while holding this needle of poison in his hand), I begged him, reasoning that he must be doing this to help me right? He said he hoped so. I asked what were the odds of it helping percentage wise. He said it was a 50/50 shot. Literally. Well, directly after he injected my foot, he did say that the corticosteroid would travel across my foot (as I said, and he denied only moments prior), and probably up into my foot. I should have called an ambulance and had the injection site cut open to bleed this kenalog 10 out. I didn't. I denied, and lied to myself. A week later, I was carrying heavy groceries to my car when my first and second toe, in between them, went numb. The stress of weight plus my toes pressing against the tongue of flip flops. Later, all my toes felt numb. Then my foot. Then later, a large piece of rock solid ice fell on the tip of my third toe...numbness, tingling, burning, and pain followed. I didn't go to the ER. I did go to have a nerve conduction test at a neurologists. Nothing. Later, a perfume bottle fell on my second toe, just the tip...more burning, tingling, insanity. The nerves in my foot were damaged...my muscle nerves and all nerves. The incident with the ice falling on my foot wasn't until 7 months following injection. It was probably long acting Kenalog. There is a trend in these comments. You are like me. We all have nerve damage caused by corticosteroid. Nerves don't heal themselves. Nor is there any way to regenerate damaged nerves. I believe that most of you have had other 'maladies' labeled on you to mask the truth....corticosteroid. kenalog 10 causes nerve damage. Would you all please consider the truth. I know this is true. I refused any further injections. I complained to the doctor and he lied saying I had a reaction that is not normal. But tell me: did you have the same reaction? Numbness following injection? With more and more nerve damage as time went on? I used my foot to walk on, so it's no wonder I have more damage with every step. Now I can barely walk. Please people, please go back to the beginning and let me know if I am not right. I know I am. It's way past time to get Kenalog off the market. It is destructive to the human body, and causes more damage than any damage you had to begin with. Please help me stop this medication, to remove it from the marketplace. It helps no one.

Leg pain, dizzy and nauseous, is this from the marina coil?
| Zoe.barrett
2 weeks ago I had the marina coil fitted 14 weeks after having my baby. A few days ago I got severe nerve like pains on my left leg just below my calf, it was painful all day, then pins and needles down my left arm. This has subsided but I am getting the odd sharp pain there now. Today 2 days after this I have been feeling dizzy, my eye sight is blurry and I feel nauseous with flu like symptoms,
Before I had the coil fitted I was fine well apart from heavy periods but now I feel dreadful. Anyone else had this and any advice please ?

Side effects and withdrawal symptoms after taking fluanxol for 3 days.
| Zarah
I have cancer and had bilateral masastectomy in Oct 2015. I have been having high blood pressure eversince my surgery. Recently my bp got worst and I had a bad neck and head pain that I thought cuold be associated to my high bp. Just a few days ago my doctor put me on fluonxol 0.5 mg and myonal 50mg (taken twice a day) for 5 days. Although my neck started to fill better, I started to fill the side effect almost immediately. On my second dose, I sweat and feel pins and needles sensation on my chest and stomache. I'm on my 3rd day of medication and it gets worst. Aside from the earlier effects, I cant sleep, feeling more anxious than before and the pins and needles sensations is getting worst. I rang my doctor and he told me to stop immediately. After 24 hours off the medication, I'm still feeling the side effects and getting scare. Is there a good method to wean of this medication naturally?

My dad has Myasthenia Gravis. He is a Vietnam vet. He is now having severe nerve pain on the left eyebrow. He says that the hair on the eyebrow hurts when he touches it. also when he washes his hair one side hurts like pins and needles. Last night the pain was so bad, he was at his lodge talking and all od the sudden he had this sharp pain around his left eye and eyebrow. Could this be Trigeminal Neuralgia.?

I am 67 and newly retired. I am chunky, but have been working out for one year swimming, biking, lifting weights. Four days ago, I started experiencing pains in my shoulder and left arm, pins and needles in left hand. A sore neck and terrible headaches. I never get headaches. I am frightened. I started taking an aspirin a day
thinking about a stroke. Can anyone advise me what this may be and what I should do? Thank you for any help.
