: is irritated all the time so this medication would probably make me worse.
Estelle I started taking miacalcin nasal spray the end of March '00. Short time later I began to have a pounding in my head when I bent over or if I did something strenuous. Coughing really hurt. Never had anything like that before. Thought it might be allergies which I have never had before. After 6 weeks went to the doctor. He treated me for allergies for several weeks. When that didn't help he tried a course of antibiotics which didn't help. Finally he sent me for an MRI. That was about 8/1/00. He had me go off the miacalcin at that point. The MRI showed no problems. After the drug was out of my system about 4 weeks he sent me to a neurologist with the MRI for a second opinion. He said everything looked normal. I came home that day and started taking the miacalcin again against my families wished. I went off it 5 days later because I began getting the pounding sensation again when I coughed or bent over. Didn't play tennis all summmer because of this. I am 62 years old.
