Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • at first I lost hearing on my left ear for several weeks with pain, eventually hearing came back. Then it occurred on my right, eventually recovered hearing. But both ears had extreme pressure and now tubes were inserted. Left ear recovered from pressure but continue to have pain. Right ear sounds as if I have water inside and I hear myself as if I'm talking inside a closet or enclosed room, only in my right ear. But both ears hurt like if my ears are being pulled downward.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Covered in rash over half my body after starting Topiramate. Have also tested positive for Lupus.


    Patient Dar on Feb, 18, 2013:

    Complete list of symptoms that docs really don't want to hear at one time. Been going on for over 15 years. Headaches, low BP with high spikes that make me fall down, heart racing, hot flashes not related to menopause, cysts on top of each kidney, low white count and platelet count often, sores on head in nose and on face, so tired don't feel like doing anything, can't sleep without all the meds and then I only sleep a short time, positive anti-nuclear test. I feel like I am going crazy and now this rash is everywhere.


    Ed on Mar, 5, 2013:

    Have your doctor check for Pheochromocytoma. I had all those symptoms and more. Pheo had grown around blood supply to kidney so it had to come out too. Much better since the surgery but I still have IBS, bipolar 2, low T, neuromuscular pain, one doctor wants to call it fibromyalgia


    rmaran on Mar, 14, 2013:

    Have you had a sample taken of the sores to test them? One time I had a sore on my leg, they scraped a sample and performed a wide variety of tests on it. F 34 CA


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Most of these are for my fibromyalgia. But now at this young age I am starting to have eye troubles such as cateracts and lines in my eyes that will not go away.The eye doctor tells me I have to watch the water in the middle of my eye that I will not loose my vision. So now I have to go in quite often. my eyes before where perfect before I started all these pills . I do not know if it is the fybromyalgia or the pills I am taking. I feel like I am dieing sometiimes with this disease. I have had it now about 14yr. I just feel like I am slowly getting worse. Nothing is helping. It is very hard for me to take narcotics cause I get sick very easy. I am to the point where I do not know what to do. but I do know that the ADD medication helps!! or I would be in bed all the time.


    AnxiouslyAwaiting on Mar, 14, 2013:

    I know exactly what you are talking about, because I'm going through it myself. I was diagnosed with Lyme in 1989 - bulls eye rash and test by CDC in Atlanta confirmed. Fast forward to 2004 and my knees and back and killing me and lots of neuro problems - all things seem unrelated at that time. I was diagnosed then with undifferentiated connective tissue disease - which is to most doctors another way to say fibromyalgia. Since no docs where I live now know anything about Lyme,they dismiss that. Instead they are putting me through all the tests that I had in '04 again. Only now, my symptoms are worse and various and more consistent with M.S. I go next Thursday for the brain scan, and they are going to do an MRI of my lumber and emg for the extreme pain in my right leg. HOWEVER, my pain doc upped my neurontin and all of a sudden, I'm having the same calf cramping pain in my LEFT LEG, too. I don't know if it's because of my back, from the neurontin, OR if I now have a blood clot. I'm a 38 year old woman, on the pill. I'm only 5'2" and about 102 since I quit smoking last year (gained about 6-8 pounds), but I am worried, worried, worried. I have to take xanax at night if i want to sleep b/c the anxiety gets so bad. While I'm at work, I stay occupied, but I do gets bouts of anxiety even then. In the meantime, I feel like I am dying. It's horrible. I've got two friends with cancer and they really are sick. I feel so bad sometimes for feeling this way when there are people who really do know that they don't have much time. Let me know if you need to vent or commiserate.
