Dr Brims :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr Brims :

This may be the start of shingles, prior to the rash appearing

Dr Brims :

It may also be an irritated nerve causing these symptoms as well

Customer:

IT STARTED ON MY LOWER LEFT ABDOMEN AND LOWER LEFT BACK, WITH AN ITCH AND A BURNING SENSATION NOW I AM FEELING THE WALKING SENSATION LIKE BUGS ON MY BACK. WHAT AM I GETTING?

Dr Brims :

Did you see my replies above?

Customer:

YES

Customer:

WHERE IS THE PALAPITATION COMING FROM

Dr Brims :

Did the palpitation start t the same time?

Customer:

CAN I WAIT UNTIL THURS. TO SEE MY DOCTOR OR RUN TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM NOW

Customer:

YES AROUND THE SAME TIME

Dr Brims :

Do you have any heart conditions?

Customer:

MITRI-VALVE PROLAPSE AND TACKACADIA.

Dr Brims :

Then the palpitations may be the result of the mitral valve prolapse causing a murmur

Dr Brims :

I think your Caps lock is on

Customer:

IT ALL STARTED WHEN I HAD A TOOTH PULED - RECEIVED ANTIBIOTICS AND AND ABOUT FOUR DAYS LATER ALL THESE SYMPTONS OCCURRED

Dr Brims :

Then you may have an infection that requires antibiotics

Customer:

INFECTION WHERE? IN MY BODY

Dr Brims :

Yes, it could be in your body

Customer:

THIS WOULD CAUSE THE ITCHING AND PAIN AND PALPITATIONS. ETC.

Dr Brims :

Yes, it could cause those symptoms

Customer:

I HAVE AMOXICILLIN WHICH I DID NOT TAKE TODAY, I JUST TOOK NOW 2 LORAZAPAM .05 AND I FEEL THE ITCHING AND PAIN A LOT BETTER. CAN I TAKE THE AMOXICIULIN WITH THE LOREZEPAM ONE HOUR APART NOW

Dr Brims :

Who prescribed amoxicillin fo you and when?

Customer:

THE DENTIST DID ON 10/20/11 WHEN I COMPLAINT TO HIM THAT I AM SUPPOSSES TO GET ANTIBIOTICS BEFORE ANY DENTAL WORK, BECAUSE OF MT HEART PROBLEMS AND THAT I WAS GETTING PALPITATION, SO THAT IS WHEN HE RAN AND PRESCRIBED THEM

Dr Brims :

Okay,it is safe to take it with lorazepam

Customer:

SO AM I SAFE TO WAIT UNTIL THURS. TO SEE MY DOCTOR

Dr Brims :

No, if you have palpitations I recommend you see a doctor by tomorrow

Customer:

OK THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR ADVISE
