  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Upon taking the Clonidine & melatonin before bedtime, this 4 year old develops severe knee clicking which seems to hurt her upon falling asleep. If she gets angry during the day she can involuntarily start the knee clicking. She is very double jointed.

  • Have had leaking right breast occasionally during peri-menopausal years. Just noticed same clear yellow liquid in same (right) breast. No pain, lumps, swelling, redness, etc., but the liquid is darker. Should I be concerned?

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I have had occasional nipple discharge thru peri-menopausal years, always in my right breast only and always a yellowish clear color. I have not had a period in 7 months, so I'm pretty sure this is indicitive of full Menopause. I just noticed some leakage in same breast (right),still clear but a darker shade of yellow. There has never been any pain,lumps, swelling or redness, etc., involved. Should I be concerned about the color getting darker?
