  • Has abilify affected your ability to make good decisions?
    My husband and I are 73. We had a paid off home and money in the bank until the past 3 years. We have made some terrible decisions and now we are practically penniless. We couldn't understand why we had made such bad decisions and let someone talk us into losing our money. We have also been on Abilify about the same amoount of time and I noticed that the commercials say a side affect can be lack of judgement or something to that effect. Has anyone else had this happen?

  • Is the a correlation with mycobacterium and myasthena gravis? (2 answers)
    I was exposed to a leper colony for about five months while in Vietnam. Many of the lepers died with open wounds and I actually wore some of their beads and trinkets around my neck. I slept on their beds and drank from their water source. Out of the clear blue almost 40 years later with no indication at all I came down with Myasthenia Gravis. Thyroid plays no role in my disease, so that has been rules out.

    Does the Mycobacterium in Leprosy have any possible correlation with me getting Myasthenia Gravis?

    Thank you.

  • Does polycystic liver disease cause back and hip pain?
    I was diagnosed with a polycystic liver 20 years ago during a scan for a possible Thymus malignancy after diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis. The finding of the cystic condition of my liver was incidental, and I was told this was a benign condition which was normally asymptomatic. I have developed abdominal distension and, incidentally, chronic pain in my lower back, hips and legs. I am wondering if the pain is connected to the liver distention; also wondering if I should be screened for polycystic kidney disease.
