In Topic: Muscle Twitches, Panic Attacks, Dizzines... Help

I have experienced muscle twitches and dizziness or what felt more like an out of body experience. Magnesium supplements and time helped me with those. You are still early on in the process. Best of luck with the diet.

In Topic: Gaviscon Chewable Tablets?

I just confirmed all Gaviscon products are gluten free as of today. I do however, have an upset stomach from it so i guess this is a no go for me. Might be the sorbitol :(

Thank you Laura. I tried the extra strength ones and the bottle says "may contain starch" but not specific. I will contact them today but i am having stomach cramps. Might be the sugar alcohols in it.

Anjani, for me it turned out to be the trigger for mast cell issues. You can read up more on that on this forum. Search mast cell activation syndrome.

In Topic: Is Celiac Disease The Culprit Of My Many Tendon Issues?

24 March 2015 - 07:45 PM

I wonder if this could be the cause of my tendon issues. I know it is off topic but do you know if those issues could remain for years and then flare up with heavy use of the affected limbs? I had a horrible reaction to Levaquin. It made me hallucinate and basically shut down my pancreas (as near as I could tell). It took a couple months of pancreatic enzymes before that got back to normal but the tendons in my hands and lower legs just keep getting worse. I have a physical job and getting tired of having to ace wrap my leg and open fingers using the other hand. If anyone knows anything that might help that would be great.

I should note that I did report the reaction to the FDA and would advise anyone having an adverse reaction to a drug to also report. Reporting helps get black box warning and can help in a decision to withdraw the drug from the market.

It can definitely be a cause. I am sorry this happened to you. Please google "floxing" and you will read many stories of people injured by this drug. I have read supplementing with magnesium, especially Epsom salt baths and magnesium sprays, help people with tendon issues. I would strongly recommend reading up more on what to do to heal the damage caused to the tendons.

Edited to add: yes, there are people with issues lingering year after taking this drug. Sometimes issues surface months after and doctors fail to connect the dots. Connective tissue is damaged to a point that normal usage creates pain similar to an over usage injury. Speaking from experience here as I have been suffering from over six months!
