Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • For the last 20-30 years I go through cycles where I am just too lethargic to function. I suffer from severe brain fog, lack of direction, sleep way too much, and am in an almost vegetative state and this could last anywhere from a few weeks to a few years. I do not believe it to be depression as I do not feel depressed. I feel unwell and quite often experience low grade fevers. I also have hemochromatosis and thyroid nodules, as well as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Bipolar Disorder and AV Nodal Re-entrant Tachycardia

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I was on Sertraline, switched to Cymbalta and added the Gabapentin. So instead of one change in meds, we dropped one and added 2. So I'm not sure if it's the Cybalta or the Gabapentin causing the edema.
