From this study (7 days ago):
I want to know if Gabapentin is causing he urinary retention I have been experiencing gradually for the past five years until now that it has gotten worse
From this study (1 week ago):
When my levels are normal I am only taking 50mg every eight hours. When increased to 100mg ever 8 the hyperthyroidism comes back. Weight loss 6-10 pounds, increased sleep disturbance and anxiety.

Still experiencing weight loss 5ft 8in at 110lbs. Increased intake of calories over the last three months and still unable to gain weight. High pulse rate 112 while resting. Female 28
From this study (1 week ago):
The tremors/shakiness are intermittent. It is possible I could have had a constant shingles outbreak for over 7 yrs now due to my severely suppressed immune system. It takes me several weeks to be able to recover from these symptoms once treatment is stopped. However, I'm not sure if there will be irreparable damage to my kidneys at this point.
