Had gallbladder issues for a couple of years. Had a test at hospital. Don't have stones and it is not diseased. Just lazy and not working all the time. Most of the time I can handle it if I watch my diet. Lately bothers me all the time. I also have diarrhea. Not every day but more than I like.

- If i have a tooth infection will it cause abnormal sleepiness (1 answer)
I believe I have a tooth infection from a poorly administrated temporary tooth put in before a crown can be put in few weeks. I am unusually sleepy and can nap for hours which is not like me at all. Could it be from the potential infection and poor dental work by the dental assistant causing this sleepiness?.

- Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.
- Aleve and erythema multiforme
I started exercising (walking outside)and due to sore knees I started taking Aleve. Within days I developed blisters on my chest, back, face, and inside my mouth. Mouth blisters were severe enough that I could only consume liquids. After 7-10 days the blisters scabbed over. This occurred three times within a two month period, the last time I had blisters around my eyes with physician concern of eye involvement but it did not happen. During the second round I went to a dermatologist and he determined that I had Erythema Multiforme and the cause was either a strep throat or Aleve. A second opinion determined it was Aleve partly because strep throat is not normally associated with EM. I have stopped taking Aleve and am EM free for 15 months.

From this study (1 month ago):
I am experiencing excessive thirst and very dry mouth while on aleve the past 9 days
From this study (2 months ago):
severe nausea and vomiting when take aleve for arthritus/joint pain, no longer take aleve, take advil instead. never experienced nausea and vomiting while taking wellbutrin and occaisionally taking advil for pain
From this study (3 months ago):
I have had Chikungunya for two months now, which leads me to use Naproxen Sodium on a daily basis (2 in the morning, 2 at night) for joint pain. I also had Benadryl a day ago for nasal allergies. Today I took a drug screening test and it was positive for THC. It made no sense to me so I looked online for anwswers and have read about Naproxen Sodium being a possible trigger. Is this true? Can I prove this? I need reliable proof other than just the internet. I may have lost the best job I was to have!
