cold rush through whole body
I ended up in the ER late last night, I suddenly had these waves of cold rushig through my body head to toe.
my hands were cold and clammy.
Heart rate way too high so they took me right back and did all echos and blood tests.
I started taking cymbalta friday, and an antibiotic (bactrim) for an outer ear infection.
The gave me two bags of fluid through I.V. because I was dehydrated. and some Adaban through IV
anyone have this happen? I know it must have been a panic attack.
They also found blood in my urine.
hope you are feeling better. You said you are taking Bactrim for ear infection but this is a sulfa antibiotic which can aggravate Lupus. I am not too sure but check with your doctor
I have experienced these feelings when commencing sertraline (zoloft) another type of SSRI. I had the cold rush, nausea, palpitations, feelings of panic. I commenced the drug when doctors thought depression was causing my other health problems. I decided to discontinue the drug as i knew i wasn't depressed. My doctor did suggest if i ever felt that i needed to try the drug again, that starting the drug on a lower dose in the future, then building up slowly to the correct dose may reduce side effects. Hope this helps.
thank you both for the replies, it has been a horrible panic ridden couple days. Before I started taking the Cymbalta and Bactrim, I was fine.
I have discontinued the cymbalta as per ER doc orders. I still have this coldish tingly numb feeling in my right arm off and on. I have carpal tunnel but have never felt this.
there is no pain though.
I wonder if it is just residual from the cymbalta. I took a bactrim this morning and then started feeling panic, had to take a xanex.
If you are on bactrim, stay out of the sun (skin and eyes) as it makes you much more sun sensitive x10. I would call the doctor with how you are feeling and see if there is something else they can prescribe.
I stopped the Bactrim yesterday morning, it was awful. I was getting numbness/tingling in my right arm that seemed to coincide with each dose.
I was worried about further problems so I quit. I am going to the doc tomorrow to get another antibiotic and urine tested again. This blood in the urine worries me.
