Rash After Toradol Injection
I was given the injection in my hip and approximately 12 hrs. later I had a rash under my right arm. Could the rash have been an allergic reaction to Toradol?
Peanut9199 - I took what looked like Hives more than a rash, but i have it all over my body. Stated 1 day after taking it.
Killthepatients - I have had so many shots of Corticosteroids/NSAIDS/Steroids: Triamcinolone Acetonide, Kenalog, Depo-Mardol, Lidocaine, Marvaine, Toradol, Epinephrine, Bextra, Xylocaine, Isovue.......on and on and now I do not walk hardly anymore. I am married, no sex whatsoever! I stayed away from my husband for 3 years almost, living at my apartment. I just moved out by Eviction March 2, 2008. I did not pay rent for one year. I applied for disability since 1995. Won ALJ decision September 2006. I appealed the case being opened back to 1995. I wanted it go go back futher. Just appealed it again in 2008. Okay, I am a simpleton out here needing a HERO to Take A Stand and Advocate for me. I do not live with my husband. I live at his mother's home so that he comes and takes cares of us at the same time. She is 90 now. Can you imagine this? I have been reduced to a cripple. I am a prisoner laid to rest by the BIG DRUG COMPANIES MISLEADING ME, IN NOT KNOWING ABOUT THE DISEASES THAT WOULD ATTACK ME IN THE ONLY LIFE THAT I HAVE. I wonder if my hip bones have collasped. I have terrible bone pain. I waddle like a duck, side to side with extreme pain until I freeze up and fall, but mostly, I live with a cane at my side when going out and about. I now need a wheelchair. From 1980's, 1990's and now all the way to 2008. I have all medicals. It was not until 2003-2004 that my life took a turn for the worse. Hips pain, arms pain, shoulders pain, pain in the Thorasic area to the tail bone area, right groin pain/pubic area pain/gentials, stomach sores/cut out, pain on the scalp, calves feel hard in side/stiff at all times, hamstrings are short,open sores have been on my face, arms and neck lasting for 4-6 mths, low back pain....all of me has been injected with the above crap. I was doing quite well in life until 2004 when this Orthopedic doctor had shot my left shoulder 3 times. After this June 2004 event above, and by September 2004 I had walking problems, blamed only on Fibromyalgia, DX 1989. They took one blood test for Polyrheumatica. I was fed 20 something meds in 2004. By 2005 I was devestated in life, health and even wanting to be alive. For one full year I lived on the pot, using Lidocaine up the butt 3-4 times a day for the pain. Now, looking back at this part, no wonder I had extreme skin blisters, hives, rashes, extreme sweating....this Lidocaine for rectum pain was harming me and no one took me off of it. I finally had my pharmacy tell me this was so wrong to be using 134.00 a month for over one year for pain. I stopped!!!! he seemed to say that I was being harmed. Suddenly, at my clinic, all of my primary doctors began to do trigger point injections weekly, monthly and for 4 years for my Fibromyalgia comlaint. DX in 1989. Many NSAIDS for one year, 2003-2004. In 2003 I had a new denture and a few teeth extracted so that I smiled great when got married April 2003. By August 2003 I was off the State HMO, had housing city of salem voucher for 5 years at my apartment and was planning to move out and be at my husband's home, but...by September 2003 I was already in some medical exams, new meds and was being normal to a point. By late 2003 to mid-2004 I was feeling strange about my health. I felt as if I was being sucked dry of any fluids, weird to say, but it felt as if...hard to explain. I was dizzy, vertigo, some balance problems and like itching, sweating and extreme fatigue. I felt like i was melting. My muscles felt like jello. I had no ability to stay upward on my spine. I did complain to my dentist and doctors that I was feeling numb on my face and gums by may 2003. After 2 years, leaving room for a possible lawsuit on the dentist/OS, I filed, had one deposition and my lawyer walked. I had laughing gas for teeth extractions/numbing shots. I thought that GAS/SHOTS was to be blamed, maybe the tools they used, or the water and I worked this case to the bitter end, sad to say, that a Lawyer Walked On Me. By 2004 I did not know what hit me with my health issues..dentists/new meds/new marriage/new doctors involved. I was in a drug stupor, taking almost 30 drugs from this clinic in 2004. Prescribed and the samples of Vioxx, Mobic, Celebrex and Bextra. I had so many Toradol shots to my spine and hips at this clinic and thought they had crippled me. This doctor humilated me. Told me that I was a nut. I now needed long term counseling with all of the body ailments they all told me. My primary doctor told me many times that NONE OF THE SPECIALIST NEEDED OR WANTED TO SEE ME FOR ANYTHING. Nothing was hardly affecting me when I got married April 2003. I was a knock out! The Gastro doctor had me on his 3 drugs also, including that daily Lidocaine up my butt. He did the endoscopy and colonscopy, bloodwork and he said I had Atrophic Mucosa. He was in direct conflict with my Neurologist who did his own work and he claimed that I was Gluten sensitive, a Celiac now. He gave B12 shots and Folic Acid on top of all the other crap that I was taking. The Hospital did a spinal tap and may tests. The pain specialist did his epidurals 2 times. I have had every NSAID they prescribed me. I had sleeping pills. I had anti-depressants. I had Vicodin to Percacets and then they tried to get me on Methadone. One week on that crap was all. I notice that Depo-Medrol, Marcaine, Lidocaine was mostly used thru out my life. The pain specialist above that I used in 2006, also shot me with the epidurals 2 times before 2006, and the O.H.S.U. also shot me with all the above when they DX me with Fibromyalgia 1989. Then many Toradol and Kenalog shots. I live with daily diarrhea since 2005-2008. My legs are always red every day with any walking, sleeping, sitting, balance is off, waddling gait. My feet pain is as if I walk on glass or rocks....sharp pain now for 4 months. Arachnoiditis fits me well. I have spoken with the doctor/expert that can test me. I have been searching since early 2004. I have no way to know who or what to blame. I even thought that the MRI's Contrast Agents harmed me starting from the past to now. I left the clinic that stole my life from me and now have a new doctor at Kaiser Permanente. I am scared of all doctors now. I have 4-5 meds right now. Not one doctor or specialist will DX me. I have a thought below... I fought the medical community WORLD WIDE back in 2002-2003 with the President Dr. Richard Willner, of Retired Association of Physcians and Surgeons. My two other sisters were in this heated debate. I was told to expect danger at any time after this online 30 page cruel attack by the doctors on my wrongful death of my mother by her doctors/nursing home/hospital. I proved this case. The lawyer in Portland, Or. Judy Snyder told me I did extremely well proving this death was murder...but the Medical Consultant who did the summary of this death was hushed up!!! Later on, after another summary by Medical Consultant, she told me that we would be lucky to get $10,000 for a Nusiance Claim. I tried to get one Lawyer before the statues ran, but no luck. I heard that the Elder Abuse Statues ran for 7 years and to try for that. Oh well, I tried. Joanie Knibbe
