Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (19 hours ago):

  • Pain comes and goes throughout day. Approx 10- 20 episodes a day . I have to lay down and relax in order for it to go away


  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • I feel a sort of confusion, slightly not with it, and frequently forget where I put things or why I went into a room etc. I am easily distracted from a train of thought. If I am shown a new process at work, I tend to forget quickly unless I have reinforced it in use for some time. Forget peoples names and the news my friends have told me. I find my thoughts flash from one thing to another if I am relaxing, so I then can't remember what I started with. Lose things frequently, but they do turn up. Can't find names eg plants in the garden even though I know them, but they will come back to me when I am not trying. I am concerned on a professional level because I am a pharmacist with obvious responsibility for safety.


  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Hair is falling out, Not growing in well and breaking off
