Comments from related studies:
From this study (13 months ago):
Hospitalized in afib. Cardiac doctors are pointing to enlarged thyroid as problem; endocrinologist is not as sure. Medicines are all new except for lipitor.
From this study (2 years ago):
I don't know if it's the Pradaxa or my Meniere's causing the nausea--however, prior to having ear surgery, I didn't have nausea but mildly on occasion. Since ear surgery and since being put on Pradaxa for A-fib, about 9 weeks ago, the nausea is daily and mild to moderate--on occasion severe. Hard to say if it's the Pradaxa or the inner ear problem or both.
From this study (2 years ago):
She is now having mucus in her stool for about 6 months and on 1-8-12 had a white bowel movement. Not sure if it is gallbladder because she does have some stones. It could be h-pylori because she has been diagnosed with that, but docs say it is not causing the nausea. They say white stool can be because of too many medications taking a toll on the digestive tract.
