Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I developed severe pain in both forearms while on Cipro. It was assumed to be tendonitis because it was a known side-effect of Cipro. I had outpatient hand therapy for months afterwords.


  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • have been having severe back pain on lower spine right above tail bone

    Have you considered seeing a neurologist? Sometimes incontinence can be caused by nerve problems.


    Linda on Jun, 9, 2014:

    I reread your symptoms. It is primarily low back pain. It could be osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, possibly a slipped disc. I take back that it might be hemorrhoids as it sounds too far up. Definitely have it checked out.


    Linda on Jun, 9, 2014:

    Did you fall on coccyx ( tailbone ) ? I had similar symptoms and was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, an autoimmune disease that affects the spine by coursing inflammation particularly in the sacral iliac joints which are located in your buttock. The pain can radiate to your back and mine sometimes goes to my hips, pelvis and sometimes down to my knee. I am a 52 year old female from their US. If you fell, you could have broken your coccyx, and that could take up to a year to feel better, ask your MD. Could be hemorrhoids, a polyp or mass and your rectum. You should definitely get it checked out.


  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • My WBC count has been low for 4mos now. I'm lethargic, having problems sleeping & still experiencing a tremendous amount of pain (which I believe it has to do with the congenital lipoma on my brain stem-I've had excruciating pain as long as I can remember.)


    really? on Sep, 22, 2014:

    I honestly thought this was a board where we could all learn from
    Each other's experiences. Unfortunately, everyone seems to be fixated on this one poster, asking a question for a "friend" & who is supposedly mixing all types of drugs. Let's get off of the 3rd party bashing because anyone on all of those drugs needs a lot more than people on a web page. Geez!!!!
