Having the ambulance come what did they do for your symptoms. They had me take three drugs for sleep when I gave my injection. Usually, within 1/2 hour to an hour, I was asleep. Then I was only taking two for sleep. Even off Tymlos I still take the drugs to sleep at night. Would you take Tymlos again after being off for a while? With the chance that side effects are not as bad the second time. But it is the next morning I have vertigo and am very fatigued and I do not get much done. I am so far behind on my chores on the farm. Hope you feel better and stay safe with all that is going on. We are right in the middle of the variant for the country so we stay home.

The ambulance, ER and ICU do drip of diltiazem. I have low blood pressure and that med lowers it further so they have to monitor. Afib is dangerous because it can cause a clot and stroke. They gave me Heparin and did an echocardiogram to make sure I had no clots in my heart. There is no way that afib with pulse at 182 should be treated at home. And no I cannot risk this again with a second try of Tymlos. Each episode makes the chance of another one coming sooner and harder, and increases the need for blood thinners, which I have so far avoided.

@kilh I take my Tymlos at night before going to bed and for the first few weeks I was very light-headed in the morning. I'm not sure it was extreme enough to classify as vertigo but I would not have driven with the feeling. Thankfully that passed. The only side effects I now have are fluid retention and possibly muscle and joint pain.

Fluid retention is generally in the belly and feet from what I have heard, and from what I have had. It is definitely from Tymlos because I stopped using it for two weeks and the fluid retention resolved almost totally. It took about 3 months before it started. My endocrinologist suggested I take a break to see if Tymlos was the cause because if not I would really need to address that and find out what the cause was.

I'm not sure that the muscle and joint pain are from Tymlos or something else. I am on three different drugs that mention them as potential side effects. The pain has been there since before I started taking Tymlos so something else is also responsible for it, but it's gotten worse so Tymlos may be exacerbating it.
