Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Had a liver ultrasound that showed everything was normal. Also had a bone scan with normal outcomes. Tests done because of elevated ALP. I have been referred to a rheumatologist and first available appointment is October 15th. Worried because I have pain all over my body and I am weak. Also have severe fatigue.


  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • I started taking garcinia cambogia to lose some weight, but three days after taking it I began to have diarreah, green stool, and awful sharp stomach pains.

    I took Garcia too. Stomach aching and some diarrhea and you know what ? It didn't work. Stop taking them !@ lol I just went on a lower calorie diet (1500 cal/day + exercise-walk 2-3 miles) and lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks and it hasn't come back.


  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Have had diarrreah since my acid reflux; now it can be solid at times, watery stools, and or floating pieces of stool. I also am incredibly anxious brought on by all this. My anxiety is over the top.
