Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I had a dental implant on tooth #13. It was painful from day one. I had it removed a year and a half later. Two months prior to removal I couldn't see straight while driving. feels like a roller coaster. cant take turns. thought I was having a heart attack. doc tried to put me on antidepressant. Even after implant was removed I still have "vertigo" and all other symptoms. I changed BP med from atenol to amlodipine.. thought it was atenol giving me anxiety. anxiety is better but I still cant drive or see straight.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Need seroquel for panic/anxiety/depression/bipolar, but it seems to bring significant nasal congestion. Can't fight it w/Afrin for more than a couple days or risk rebound nasal congestion although Afrin does bring relief. Using Sudafed PE with mixed results and often need Afrin to breathe through my nose. Often have feeling of diffculty swallowing although a recent endoscopy did notfind anything physical. Panic/anxiety most often in the evening/night which are moretolerable when I stand-up and move around. Coping with anxiety and swallowing issues at night often result in little sleep on many nights per week.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Incorrect medication administered at hospital resulting in heart attack. Attempted treatment of lifelong flutter of heartbeat, as it was misdiagnosed as a heart attack, prior to a scheduled knee operation.
    Symptoms resulting afterwards are making severe inpact on normally active life by way of negative symptoms listed above. Drugs new since April.
