What do you do when you are taking Eliquis for A-Fib episode? You can't take SSRI's and tricyclic antidepressants are said to cause dementia. SSRI's are said to also work as anticoagulants.

Fri, Jul 3 8:20pm · blood in urine with no cause in Kidney & Bladder

I have had microscopic hematuria since I went thru menopause. It is classified as "idiopathic – no known cause." I have had the following tests: cystoscopy; MRI with contrast; CT scan with contrast; renal ultrasound; urine cytology, you name it. It has been attributed to very low estrogen. I have always been on the thin side and have refused any kind of hormone therapy. All of my diagnostic tests have come back normal. Microscopic hematuria (idiopathic) is very common in post menopausal women. I hope this helps.

Another thing that happens to me is that I get really shaky, and hot. Sometimes it feels like a cloud is passing in front of me. I don't have any pain like a prodrome to a migraine. This whole sensation lasts less than a couple of minutes.

Could you be having vestibular migraines? This happens to me too. I feel "hollow" inside my head, no pain, just very lightheaded and weak momentarily.

I have had every test you can think of. Nothing abnormal. I drink 3 quarts of water daily, take probiotics, 500mg Vitamin C, d-mannose, cystex, you name it. It just happens. It all started after I went thru menopause.

Sat, Jan 4 1:12pm · C Difficile: Do you have memory issues, disoriention, confusion? in Digestive Health

I didn't have any issues other than the weight loss and belly pain. I was on antibiotics for roughly 29 days for a UTI that was misdiagnosed. I developed C-diff as a result of this and lost 20 pounds in less than 2 weeks. I was placed on vancomycin for approximately 60 days and that took care of the problem. I was also taking Bio-K plus probiotics for approximately 3 months and now take Florastor daily and have had no further issues. I hope this helps. I know how miserable C-diff is.

I don't but my sister-in-law does and she has chronic uti's. I thought that maybe that could be a contributing factor because of our anatomy. I'm not sure that she has discussed this with her urologist. But, in reality, it makes some sense.
