I have a couple questions so i thought i would ask if anyone had similar problems. After 18 years of repetious work in a factory i have carpal tunnel in both wrists, chronis tendonitis and nervitis in the right hand, arm, and soulder. I had been taking anti inflammaotry drugs since 2001, which really heped along with darvocet. Well, on January 11th this year i ended up in the emergency room with severe sstomach pains in my upper stomach. they checked my blood glucose levels and sent me to a specialty hospital because they said they were "scary high" and they couldn't treat me. i ended up in the icu for 3 days with ketoacidoses. i had never heard of it before, had no clue why my sugar was so high.(413) and was repeatedly asked "how much i drank a day!" the kicker here being that i don't drink! they started asking me about medications i was taking and i told them about the feldene and they immediately took them away from and won't let me have anything remotely close to an anti inflammatory. my othorpedic surgeon who prescribed them for me says it has nothing to do with the diabetes.this after having an endo tell it did. so now i am confused and i ended up a type one diabetic. i am 47 years old, can anyone tell me if this could happen, or did happen to them?
