I did a cystoscopy because I have a cyst on my bladder that is 1.2 x 1.7 x 1.2cm. They took a biopsy and it takes 5 weeks for the results to come out to determine whether the cyst is a tumour or not. I had 6 UTI's in the past two years. Each UTI lasting for more than a week due to the bacteria being resistant to the antibiotic. I've been taking oxybutynin since february 16. I've missed some pills before but for no more than 3-5 days. I have 60 more pills left of Ditropan. When I don't take Oxybutynin, I'm forced to go pee every 50 mins even if it's only a drop. So Ditropan helps me sleep in order for the bladder pain not to wake me up.
These past two days i haven't felt the urge to pee or anything but my throat felt dry so I took Reactine (antihistamine) in case it was my sinus but I only took one pill. I had occult blood test done a few days ago, I haven't heard back from them yet. But I had a blood test done in March and my hemoglobin was 11 due to constant diarrhea as side effects from all the antibiotics I took (Septra, Teva-Norfloxacin, and Ciprofloxacin). I did a c-difficile stool test but it was negative. I did another one a few days ago as well but I still haven't heard back. My headaches started five days ago I think.
Since I started the antibiotics in February, I had been taking Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium during the same period but the doctor at the clinic who sent me to do the blood and stool tests told me to stop taking them. I won't be seeing the doctor till next week.
So for the past 5 days, I've been having headaches that come and go, including lots of pressure that follows a pattern when I'm either eating or just lying down. When I woke up today, I didn't eat anything because I didn't have a headache and so I was afraid to eat. I ate at around twelve and the headaches started again. I feel them more when I stand up, but now that I'm lying down as I type this message, the pressure subsides a bit. I don't have a fever though, and I definitely don't have another bladder infection.
My blood pressure keeps going up and down for the past 5 days. The headaches and dizziness start after I eat something. I'm just wondering if it's because I stopped taking ditropan for two days. If not, then why is it that when I don't eat or when I lie down with my legs elevated, the pressure is not so bad? Could it mean that I'm hypoglycemic? Because I do know that I have low blood pressure. That's the question. Thanks.
No but I have a history of fainting a lot so I can feel it when I'm light headed or when I'm suddenly filled with energy. But in past measurements it's been 90/70 the highest being 90/100 I think sometimes the systolic pressure goes below 90 from 86-88. I just feel the blood rush down to my feet. When I close my eyes and sleep with my legs elevated the headache goes away.
I did a blood test a few days ago but I didn't hear back on the results yet to find out if I'm hypoglycemic or not.
The headaches start after I eat, so I'm wondering if hypoglycemic individuals have certain food to stay away from, just so I can balance my blood pressure and try to stop the headaches. Thank you.
I'm 156 cm tall (5 foot 1) and weigh about 110-115 pounds (50kg). I was told that my blood pressure was normal for a small body size.
Although these headaches started five days ago, could it be that it has no relation to me stopping oxybutynin? or because I've had constant diarrhea? The headaches start only after i eat, so if I were to fast all day I would be fine.
