  • From this study (12 hours ago):

  • I have had severe loss/thinning of hair over this last year, and it seems to be getting worse over the last 6 months. I lose an inordinate amount of hair whenever I brush, comb, or shampoo my hair.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I have an non-typical pulmonary stenosis, MPA aneurysm directly above that valve. The left ventricle was also enlarged due to the stress of my third & final pregnancy put on my heart.

    On March 1st (this year) I went to the ER as none of my asthma treatment weren't working. After several tests a pulmonary embolism was found in my bronchial trunk. It was successfully dissolved with heparin in 48 hours. The PE put more stress on the left ventricle. As a result I was sent home to be on bed rest as I only had trouble breathing while mobile, under stress or attempting to carry on a conversation. At rest, my heart rate & oxygen meter would go back to normal.

    That is no longer the case. When I went in to my Asthma & allergy doctor's office to do my PFT, it was worse than it has ever been, including before I quit smoking 5yrs. ago. This started at the same time I began taking Coumadin & became worse as I reached therapeutic INR levels.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • History of general muscular and joint aches for several years. Ongoing itch in groin with no rash, with periodic small recurrent open sore in the same location in the groin, oozing a white, smelly substance if not treated with fungicide, antibiotic or alcohol. Fluid filled swelling in left elbow, aspirated and tested positive for crystals consistent with pseudogout. Paecilomyces lilacinus was detected in lab results for pseudogout. Betadyne was used. When aspirant was taken, but physician attributes this to airborn fungi. Patient suspects groin symptoms and other issues may be caused by the drugs or fungus or combination.
