Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, I don;t have a list of her meds to hand I will have to ask her for them but this might take me a day, or so. Can I get back to you?
Will this cost a further £20.03?
OK thank you. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Sorry for the delay but I've managed to get a list of Mum's meds. Here they are:
Alendroic Acid 70mg - Once a week
Adcal-D3 - One twice a day chewable tablets
Omeprazole 20mg - One daily
Viazem XL 180mg capsules - One daily
Simvastatin 20mg tablets - One a night
Warfarin 3mg - Taken as directed by the warfarin clinic
Ventolin 100mg Inhalation as needed
Forstair 100mg inhaler - Inhale 2 doses daily.
She also takes 2 paracetamol each night which she says is to help her sleep. She often takes paracetamol during the day as she gets a lot of back pain and pains in her side. She has also had 2 infusion treatments for her osteoperosis and is due a visit to the hospital in March to discuss if she needs any further treatment to help with her back pain and the sharp pains she gets in her side.
I think that is it. I look forward to your reply.
As her doctor has put her shaking/wobbly legs while standing down to old age Mum has just accepted this as a part of getting old. She has had blood tests done recently for the infusions but I don't think she has had a urine test.
As already mentioned this has been going on for well over a year now and only happens when she stands still.
I forgot to mention that she does eat a very well balanced diet and has plenty of fruit and vegetables on a daily basis.
If you think she needs a full blood panel what do I say to her doctor? Do I suggest this, or should I leave it to him to suggest it (as if it was his idea). As already mentioned he seems to have put it down to old age and doesn't seem that interested in looking into it further.
Just one last question.
If it is a vitamin deficiency is this treatable? And do you think it would help solve her shaking problems when standing?
