Re: does mexiletene cause anyone else kidney pain or pain in kidney area
yea the coke taste was the main reason I wanted off diamoxx. my doc does and has tested for the kidney and said everything is fine. not sure I trust him though after all he is a doctor. never had the pain until I started taking mexiletene I originally started mex while on diamoxx as order of doctor but the pain in the area was almost instant and after investigating myself I found that a person should never take both. in my area of the kuntry the docs and pharmacist are smarter then ur average fifth grader. it took over 26 years for me to even be diagnosed with mytonia still until I found your site did I learn of the dna test to find which one I have on my next visit I plan to seek the test to find out exactly what I have not sure but I know my joints are completely gone. the pain,popping and krackin are constant and according to my doc there is no pain with this disease so I do not qualify for pain treatment help.
