Seizure

My family member has MRSA that attached to her spine, e.g. on her bone. She is on Vanco and just had a full seizure. Does anyone know anything about MRSA and seizures? Thanks.

It's probably impossible for any of us to say whether your family member had a seizure because of the vanco or because of the MRSA. I have a friend who ended up with an abscess in her spine too. I hope that the doctors are able to find out the cause of the seizure and prevent it from happening again. Keep us posted.

yeah its possible im thinking not that I know for sure. When I was in the emergancy they told me to keep an eye on my MRSA cause it can easily go to the brain so with that said.........I'm thinking it could cause anything after it gets to the brain.

I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Bone Density Durgs & Sinemet

    3
    I'd like advice from anyone who has both Parkinson's and Osteoporosis and has combined any of the drugs such as Prolia and Forteo with Sinemet. My bone density scans are very bad, and I now need something stronger than Boniva, which I have taken for six years. The possible side effects of Prolia and/or Forteo include many of the same I have experienced with Sinemet -- especially dizziness and...
