I was taken to hospital in an ambulance on Sunday night with uncontrolable neck spasms. I was one of the scariest things I have ever gone through. They concluded at the hospital it was some sort of reaction to the zoladex. I have fibronyalgia which is contraindicated for Zoladex. I suffer from spasms but this was so something out of the exorcist! My neck started to flop and lock to one side and the the other every fifteen minutes and the the right side. i couldn't speak properly. I will never ever touch this drug again. I was given diazepam and diahydracodeine at the hospital and some dh to take home. I had a terrible feeling about taking this drug, and in my personal case I was right.I thought I was having a stroke or something. So scared. My neck and back and shoulders are obviously very tender but fortunately I got my meds to take- diazepam 3 times a day and dh 3 to 4 times a day. My next injection is due next wed-needless to say I willnot be going for it. I was at the doc on monday morning -the lovely doc at the hospital even told me to ask for oral morphine if the dh didn't work but fortunately it did. the GP is trying to get in touch with my consultant to find out what to do next which we expect is what pill I should be put on- I have been reading about cezzatte but don't know if this is suitable?
Just to point out still haven't had an appt with a consultant since my laparotomy in May!!!
My mum was told an appt had been made for sept before sundays incident). I cannot fanthom How they can treat us ladies like this, Human guinea pigs. They seem to leave the Gps to administer powerful drugs and leave the patient to suffer the consequnces.
Sorry for long post,
