Symptoms that have me concerned:
Basic: still having break thru acid reflux even after upping my medication.
My joints hurt so much more than they did last year in the cold.
On my right side my foot is either numb or feels asleep all the time, my calf/shin area get shooting burning pains that comes and goes in waves, the back side of my thigh gets a line right down the middle of it that does the same thing as the calf/shin area. The thigh is a lot less often than the calf/shin area.
On my left side my foot just started today to go numb in the toes. It has not yet spread to the whole foot. No pains in leg other than normal arthritis pain in joints.
My back goes out a lot less with medication but when it does it is worse. The pain is becoming unbearable. And my muscles have started to knot easier and are harder to get out when my back goes out now.
My neck is now getting shooting pains out of no where. It feels like I have pulled it when I have done nothing to pull it.
My headaches/migraines are more frequent and more painful. It almost stops me in my tracks.
I am having a hard time concentrating, I get lost in conversation very easy now. I some times have to have people repeat what they just said to me but I cant understand it. I know I heard it but they may as well be speaking German.
I have a hard time sleeping again. My mind is running a mile a min and wont stop! Then when I do get sleep I am still exhausted all day. If I take a nap it makes bed a night even harder. But I can sit down in a chair and have important things to do and pass out from exhaustion.
Please let me know if any of these are reactions to medication. I was never made aware that they had any side effects this bad. Please help me figure out where to start.
