Sep 19, 2018 · Withdrawal from Lexapro, Welbutrin, Lyrica, prescribed Ziprasidone. in Depression & Anxiety

Farabella, I have been on Ativan for about 5 years now and have never had any side effects. I too have high blood pressure and I take Lisinopril. I've never had any problems. I am by by nature a high strung person and the Ativan helps me tremendously. I wish you a lot of luck. If not Ativan, there are other antianxiety drugs out there. Your anxiety could cause you to have another stroke, along with your high blood pressure.

Sep 19, 2018 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

Hi! My name is Susan and I've had chronic pain for 8 years now. I'm now a retired R.N. because of my initial cervical fusion. I had two surgeries on my neck, one posterior and one anterior. I too have osteoporosis. I also had two right hip replacements within a month of each other, due to a fractured femur from the first replacement. Now I suffer from severe neck and hip pain. I'm on Fentanyl patches every other day which don't help much.

Sep 13, 2018 · Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement in Joint Replacements

This is so very true, frister. I wish I never had it done. I hate living with excruciating pain and limitations. My surgeon says this is common and will go away a year after surgery. I should have placed a bet with him. It's getting worse. My pain now is worse than before my surgery. I've now been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis so I sure as heck don't want to trip and fall. Yes, it can get worse.

Jul 26, 2018 · Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi! My name is Susan and I had a left total hip done about 6 years ago and never have had any problems. This past January, I had my right hip done with problems from day one. Pain very excruciating and with several visits to my surgeon. He told me that I had sciatica. I'm an RN, working on a neuroscience floor and I knew it wasn't sciatica. He did an x-ray and said everything looked great. I knew there was something wrong so I asked him for a second opinion. I had another surgeon from his practice see me. He looked at the x-ray taken a few weeks prior by the other surgeon. He said that I needed surgery ASAP as I had a fractured femur. So the following week I had a right hip revision. Everything was good until two weeks ago where I started having right thigh pain. This is now worsening where I need a cane. Now my groin is hurting. I did some grocery shopping today and I had the hardest time getting into my car to drive home. My thigh and groin hurt so badly I was crying. I finally got my leg in the car. I left the groceries in the car and made it to my bed. I have taken Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Excedrin Migraine. Nothing touches this pain. I'm almost afraid to call my surgeon because I'm afraid he's going to tell me that this is a normal condition post-op and just go home and rest. My husband is really concerned as well so I will make an appointment tomorrow. My problem with some doctors is that they don't listen to their patients. We know our body better than anyone, right? Well, I just needed to vent to people who are in the same boat as I am. I appreciate anyone listening. Thank you.
