I’m on day 2 of Diamox. Even though the opthalmologist gave me the 250 dosage, having read some of your reports, I thought I’d start at 62.5 and work up. I took 3 such equal doses yesterday and I have to report the tingling but it wasn’t just in my fingers as the opthalmologist had said but it was my hands and lower arms, feet, at the back of my head between my ears and it felt like the inside of my spine, down to my waist!
Today, after my second dose, the tingling in my fingers got worse. When I was 16, I was beat up at school and I reluctantly retaliated which made me so upset I started to sob uncontrollably, the outcome of this was that I went tingly all over and both hands went into a spasm that made them close up. I was told by my GP I had hyperventilated. Well, this more intense tingling I’m feeling now is like that, though my breathing is perfectly calm but three fingers on my right hand (middle – little finger) have closed up on 3 occasions for about 5 minutes this evening. Try as I might I cannot open them with the muscles, I have to hook them over my knee and slide my hand up my leg to open them.
I suppose the good news is that the use does come back within a relatively short time. Has anyone else experienced this ? Does anyone know if it is indicating a deficiency of anything ?
Many thanks in advance
