Is metamizol a narcotic?

Firstly i would like to mention that metamizol is illegal in Canada and the United States as far as i know. Secondly although it is considered a Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug it does give you an euphoric feeling, it is also a powerful pain killer much like ketorolac (brand name Toradol). I have used both of these drugs and i find that they do have an abuse potential, i highly doubt that people can become dependent on these drugs since there is absolutely no withdrawal. Finally if you are looking for something to stop moderate to severe pain these drugs are a great substitute to opiates, if you have stumbled upon this topic trying to figure out if this drug will get you high, yes it will give you a minor high.

Metamizol can be purchased in Europe the brand name is Analgin, the specific countries selling this drug that i know of is Ukraine and Russia, there is no problem carrying it over the border even though it is illegal in Canada and the States.

Metamizol does not belong to the group of non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAID) but to the non-opioid analgetics, being an cyclooxigenase-inhibitor, therefore being antipyretic, analgetic, spasmolytic and antiphlogistic. IT is not an narcotic drug. and in contrast to the NSAID's it does not cause stomach problems.

it does not cause depdendency or addiction and any kind and a hig' is not one of the discribed sideeffects.

the prohibition is due to its sideeffect of an agranulocytosis (1 out of 1.1 million) with at times fatal outcome. if used correctly fatalities occure in 25 out of 100 million wich is significantly less then in aspirin or diclofenac.

What causes numbness on your head?

  • I'm actually 15 and my entire head is numb right now, i have no neck problems or anything that my doctor and i know of. I can feel when something's touching my ears, but i have no idea if it hurts or not. there will be some brief periods during the week when i can suddenly feel things around my head. i wake up at 4:00-4:30 every day. i hate my german teacher:), and i have a 6 page paper due in 12 hours and im screwed. Hope i helped
  • Numbness on your head may be caused by twisting the neck while the body is flat on its back. This position is achieved most often while asleep; the head lolls to the side with the face facing the left shoulder, or when attempting to watch television in the same position. Blood is not allowed to flow through the neck's artery causing the numbness. The numbness generally goes away when the body is righted, that is, one trains themselves to sleep on their backs with the head in alignment, or the entire body is twisted to face the television when in a lying position. Numbness may also occur when the head rests upon the arm near the temple, but does not occur if the cheek, for example, rests on the same arm. The numbness generally happens within 10 to 15 minutes and the entire right side of the head at the top is without feeling until circulation improves. Circulation is achieved within 5 minutes.
  • I am a 24 years old male and it has been many years since my head started getting numb sometimes. I usually get it when I am under a lot of stress and or I fear of something bad going to happen. Mostly it lasts for days but sometimes it goes away in a few hours. And each time my head gets numb I think I have a tumor or something and then it makes it even worse till I see a doctor about it, and be told that its only the anxiety.
  • I also suffer from head numbness but it did not start till my car accident 6 years ago. Ever since then, every now and then I get the numbness and the doctors keep telling me it's a migraine What's Going On????? I went to several different doctors and they just don't get it it's not a migraine I can feel it.
  • I am a 23 year old male and I frequently experience numbness and tingling in my head, specifically near the back and on the right. It also causes a flight numbness or ache in my right ear. I sincerely worry this is a problem related to cell phone use as I've stupidly had one since I was 11. It seems to get worse when I think about it thought which makes me think I'm just being a hypochondriac, but there are other times I notice it out of no where. It's very weird that there are so many young people around my age with this problem.............
  • I GET THE SAME THINGS. i was cutting hair and i had to leave my client because i thought i was about to have a stroke, I'm only 24 years old... i had to get another girl to finish my hair cut as my forehead temple and cheek were all tight and numb feeling went to the doctor and she was like its a migraine. i have migraines a lot and i said no that's not what it is she says its called a Ora migraine. I'm going to look it up however i am still scared for tumors or brain cancer... and same thing as you i was in a car accident and it never happened before that....sometimes the back of my head goes numb and the center of my spine too... always on the left side i am booked in with a nuerologist!!!
  • Dude this is freakin' weird! I AM 24 ALSO and have the same problem with the numbness!!! Though I was not in a car accident I woke up one morning and my whole head was numb and I could feel the blood rushing back to it as I got up but tingling and pain was still there for the rest of the day! Then I figured it was me cutting off my circulation while I slept until it started randomly happening during the day and other random times! It never stopped and even as I type this my the whole back of my head is about to be numb now. . . THIS SUCKS AZZ!!! I have always had problems with my scalp cause it is tender in the center and ridiculously painful sometimes (sensitive) hair dressers call it acute tender head-a- something or other but the numbness is new and gotta go!!! I thinking Im about to have a stroke or heart attack or something!!! What the hell are we supposed to do?

I am a 24 year old female and am shocked to discover there are other people the same age with the same problem with numbness and tingling of the head. I too get anxious when I have symptoms of any sort and it took me a while to gather the nerve to even look up what might be the cause of the symptoms. I too was in a car accident when I was nineteen and suffered whip lash, but only recently started experiencing these symptoms. I am relieved to hear that what I am experiencing might be less severe then a brain hemorrhage or cancer. I really scared of going to the doctor. Please keep updating your posts about what the doctors say so I can also know what might be wrong with me.

How weird, I am also 24 and a hair stylist. I suffer from migraines, neck & shoulder pain from my job etc. For the first time today the back of my head went numb and very cold feeling, which to me was a bit strange. I have had a pretty medium headache all day today. I went home and went to bed and somewhat later my head started going numb and down my back in the middle around my spine with the cold feeling again. Prehaps my spine is out and pinching on some nerves??I have not been in a car accident before but have slipped and fallen straight onto my back hitting my head on wooden floor receiving whiplash then.

Finding a Neurologist and requesting a mri and a having your brain scanned will be the best thing you could do. Upon you getting that done, ask the doctor if they can look for Chiari 1 Malformation. More information on that you can find on: http://www.asap.org/index.php/disorders/chiari-malformation

You never want to assume or diagnose yourself.

Well folkes I am pushing 50 know and had this cold head for many years ,stayed away from dinning rooms that are air condintioned etc.

I wear a ball cap ever day and a bed cap every night to bed.

Been to a few Doctors.They believe I frozze my head to many times working up north. Not !

There is hope. It is mostly in the neck . Chiropractors helped some .

But what realy helped me is taking 2 Calcium pills 500mg each before bed time.

It took about 2 weeks to notice a diffence.

Must be because we have not been drinking enough milk ,more pop and beer etc.

Joints are working better ,maybe allowing more blood flow to the scalp now.

Still wear a cap in cool days,just don't need a hot shower or use of a hiar dryer in the morning.

Does increased barometric pressure cause headaches?

It can, yes. Like every other trigger, what type of weather can trigger a migraine for a person is very individual. For some people it is a change in barometric pressure, whether up or down. For some people it involves humidity. For others a temperature change.

Storm fronts can be what trigger many people. In the warmer months, a falling barometer indicates a storm coming through. In the winter, however - it is the rising barometer that indicates a storm - usually snow.

What is the best painkiller to take for a migraine?

I suffered from migraines for years and tried all kinds of prescription drugs. A couple of years ago, a friend told me to try Ibuprofen, which I reluctantly did. I did not for a minute think it would work, but every time I feel a migraine coming on, I just take two Ibuprofen and it subsides. Years of suffering and a simple tablet like that sorted it out.

Can migraine relief tablets be taken at the same time as omeprazole?

Yes.

Omeprazole (Prilosec) does not interfere with either the triptan medications or over the counter marketed pain relievers such as Excedrin/Excedrin Migraine.

In fact, when omeprazole is taken with aspirin (which is found in Excedrin) it has been shown to protect against the potential for creating ulcers.

Cramping During Pregnancy

Is cramping an early sign of pregnancy?

Yes, cramping *without bleeding* can be an early sign of pregnancy. Below, several women tell their personal experience with cramping and pregnancy:

  • Cramping can be a sign of implantation, which occurs very early in pregnancy. Also, your uterus gets crampy as things start growing! If your period is late, it's time to test.
  • Yes, cramping can be a normal sign of pregnancy. I asked my doctor about it and he said it is the body's way of preparing for the baby.
  • It could be. I was sure I would get my period since I was cramping a lot, but all the cramping was because my uterus was preparing for the baby.
  • I'm about 6 weeks pregnant with my second child and have just started experiencing some cramping that seems to come and go, but no bleeding whatsoever. My doctor says cramping in early pregnancy (unless accompanied by other symptoms like bleeding, fever, etc.) is completely normal.
  • I am six weeks pregnant. I have been having period like cramping for the last 2 weeks. I thought I was going to have my period, but instead I found out that I am pregnant. Don't worry unless the cramping is accompanied by bleeding.
  • Last month on cycle day 27, I took a pregnancy test and it was a very faint positive. Then several tests after that one were negative. Then I began to feel cramps like my period was coming, only lighter in intensity and of less duration, but my period didn't come until 2 weeks later and was heavy with clots. My doctor said that I had a chemical pregnancy - which is basically an early miscarriage, happens in up to 50% of pregnancies, most women don't even know they were pregnant. So while cramping could be a sign of pregnancy, it can also be a sign of your menstrual cycles following an early miscarriage.
  • I am in my first-trimester and cramping as we speak. For about 2 weeks before AF was due, I was experiencing abdominal cramps and discomfort. I think I ran to the bathroom tampon in hand for a week. My normally regular period never showed. I took a EPT and to my excitement, these cramps are just my little one making room.
  • I had cramping as if my period was going to start for a week. I was due for a period on May 3. I decided to take a pregnancy test on April 30th and to my surprise it was positive. So cramping could be a sign of pregnancy.
  • It seems that cramping in a lot of cases is normal but in my case it wasn't. Both times I have been pregnant I had cramping similar to my period. I took HPT that came out positive but when I went to the doctor my bloodwork was not normal and I had miscarriages both times around weeks 7-8. So while cramping can be perfectly normal, sometimes it isn't. Go to the doctor and have them do a blood test so you can have peace of mind.
  • I have a four year old and with my pregnancy with him I had pretty severe cramping from about the week before I found out I was pregnant until I was about 6-8 weeks pregnant and everything was perfectly normal. So try not to stress about it too bad. I worried myself sick and everything was fine.
  • Go to your doctor and get a blood test to make sure everything is perfectly fine, but cramping is probably just your body making room for your child.
  • I had bad cramping with this pregnancy (my second, first was a miscarriage) until I was almost 10 weeks. My OBGYN said he never worries about cramping unless you are also having spotting and/or bleeding. He said in most cases cramping is a very normal sign of pregnancy. I am now 15 weeks pregnant and everything is fine.
  • I just found out I was pregnant today. I was expecting my period 2 weeks ago. I had period-like cramps and the whole time and I had a pad on but nothing. So today my husband and I decided to get a home pregnancy test and it came out positive. So cramps but no bleeding is perfectly fine.
  • Yes - it certainly does. I thought I was getting my period, cramping and lower back ache for a few days. Just done a test and it's positive!
  • I told my husband for over a week that I would be starting my period that day because I was having cramping just like I would for my periods, now my pregnancy test is positive, with the cramping! Who would have thought that cramping could be a good thing?

Can milo cause migraine?

Yes - full blown migraine. Testimony - Sadly, whilst I love the product - the taste, the smell - everything - Milo remains the No. 1 migraine trigger for me. Even the smallest amount, eg: one square of a Milo bar brings on a major migraine. No other product or chocolate has the same effect.

How do I prevent migraine headaches through diet?

Yes, it is possible to prevent migraine headaches through dieting. Having a deficiency in magnesium can trigger headaches. Eating foods containing magnesium, such as almonds, leafy vegetables, grapefruit, salmon, apples, or brown rice (to name a few) all aid in preventing the trigger. Also, eating foods rich in Vitamin E, such as oatmeal, seeds and nuts, or yogurt all help improve circulation, which can help prevent headaches. Lastly, be sure to avoid drinking too much alcohol, artificial sweeteners, or caffeine, as these are common triggers for migraines.

What is migraine and how to prevent it?

Most headaches, including migraines, have specific triggers. These triggers can be food related, or be caused by external factors such as stress, lack of sleep, or too much sunlight. If the headache has already been triggered, medication and rest in a quite, dark place are usually the best forms of treatment. The type of medication that works best will vary from person to person.
