Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Sarcoidosis caused complete heart block. Pacemaker implanted in December 2009 but for the past two years I have had palpitations caused by around 3.7 million ectopic heartbeats per year.

    Sarcoidosis also in lungs and eyes. Extended use of Pred Forte caused development of cataracts, one of which has been removed and I am awaiting the second operation.

    Breathlessness is caused by lack of oxygen entering the bloodstream and my ongoing heart problems

    Rarely able to sleep properly due to pain, sleeping for about 20 minutes at a time when I become so exhausted that the pain can't keep me awake

    Muscle and joint pain have made me weak and clumsy.Pain is felt all over, from head to toes along with muscle cramps and intense burning sensation to skin on lower legs.

    ACE levels fluctuate but average 110 - 150.

    Blood pressure on average is 150 / 78 - no treatment given

    I also take Nefopam Hydrochloride (Acupan) for pain but this drug is not on the list.

    Immobility, fatigue and constant pain have left me very depressed ad harbouring thoughts of suicide. My 15 year old granddaughter has lived with me since the death of my daughter 11 years ago and it is my hope that I will live long enough to see her settled in college and independent after which the only thing I have to look forward to is to end my own suffering.


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • My doctor recently diagnosed me with polycythemia vera. I have observed that at times it seems my intake of liquids appears lower than my expression of liquid in urea. Since I've only started taking Invokana in the last three months I have some questions regarding whether Invokana can cause a reduction in blood plasma levels and possibly result in secondary polycythemia. I have two other conditions which may be exacerbating or may be a major contributor to this. The first is I am also undergoing testosterone treatment in the form of an injection for treatment of hypergonadism; and, I also have sleep apnea and may be having hypopnea events, both of which may be contributing to a diagnosis of polycythemia. I have just started undergoing testing to determine which of these may be an issue. Not knowing about testosterone's side effects, I at first suspected Invokana as a contributor because I have taking testosterone for quite some time, over a year, and had never been diagnosed with PV before.
    At this time, I am working with my doctor to rule-out, or consider causes from my medication. It is my intention at this point in time to undergo sufficient testing to rule out, or include Invokana as a possible synergistic contributor to one or more other contributing sources of the diagnosis.


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • After eating my stomach is a lot of pain and then I start burping and I have gas very bad.
