  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I also have a hot feeling in my skin mostly in knees and shins. When taking Norpace, Tikosyn had
    same effect. Discontinued them.


  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Since being put on Xarelto 20 mg on April 25th 2014 i have developed severe to moderate roving joint pain.


  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • Tickle in throat about even with jawline. I feel like I could put my finger on it. Only tickles in 1 spot. Causes a coughing spasm so bad that people think I am choking. Sometimes tickle happens when I swallow causing the same coughing spasm. Sometimes I wheeze after one of the choking fits, and that lasts about 1/2 of an hour. Usually sucking on a piece of hard candy ends the coughing for awhile. I have been doing this for about 7 months. Swallow test performed and it is normal,
