Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic pain syndrone, as well as panic and anxiety syndrone, and now restless leg syndrone. I am concerned that the tremor might be Parkinson's Disease and I need to know how to find out the answer. I LOVE the cymbalta for pain, stiffness and especially the panic and anxiety but I do want to be certain that I don't have Parkinson's.

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • I have had 2 ocular migraines with elevated blood pressure this month. Could it be the Zantac? I took one last night for heartburn and had an ocular migraine this morning. Lately I have had a lot of flushing of the face and wake up with my face flushed in the morning although my blood pressure has been normal. I have had heartburn since taking the Lopressor and Norvasc and that is why I started on the Zantac OTC. I used to have ocular migraines about 30 years ago and they were related to decongestants.

    I am wondering if any of the above drugs could be causing my flashing lights type migraine. I do not have any severe pain with this. Could it be drug interaction and which one is causing the flushing of the face and heartburn. It did not start until I started the Lopressor and Norvasc.
