Thank you all very much for your thoughtful answers (and sorry for my delayed reply). I must admit, I regularly forget that I am getting older ... ;-) And yes, as someone with various confirmed pollen allergies, I took one cetirizine tablet one evening and felt absolutely vile the next day, so I can only confirm what Michelle says...

Hi all, I currently take Citalopram (40mg a day) which of course is notorious for causing prolonged QTc intervals. But is it possible to develop this condition after you've already been taking the drug for many years? I started taking citalopram in 2003 when I was 34 and it was great - no side-effects whatsoever. One year later, the dose was increa...

Thank you very much for this reply! Yes, my ENT specialist suggested this maneuver too; it does help, albeit not for long. I have had this vertigo for over 20 years too, and it has declined over time, so I too wondered about advanced MeniƩre's...

Good morning! Two years ago, I had a severe bout of vertigo which declined gradually over 2-3 weeks, and which the doctors diagnosed as vestibular neuritis. At the time, they also gave me a hearing test and diagnosed the early stages of presbyacusis . I had already been prone to bouts of vertigo which would start without warning; they would go away after h...

Ah, that's a great help, thank you very much. I have had phases of pancreatic type pain, but my amylase levels have always been normal. I'll put these ideas forward to my primary healthcare provider and see what she says. Thanks again!

I (female, 43) had my gall bladder removed in November 2008 after years of chronic cholecystitis. As the inflammation didn't show up on any ultrasounds, it went undiagnosed for years and upon removal, turned out to have developed into a porcelain gallbladder. Everything was fine afterwards provided I avoided fatty foods and too many eggs or milk product...

Yes, I absolutely agree. Acholic feces (that's the medical term for feces like you describe) would make me think first and foremost of gallstones. CalGal is right - an ultrasound of the gallbladder and bile ducts would be a good idea.

Yeah... if you can work to earn the money :-/ Still, I am training as a natural health practitioner (herbs, homeopathy and stuff) right now and will hopefully be able to help myself to some extent.
