From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a mild food poisoning or something that seemed Iike that, and it lasted for 2 days then improved. I was feeling ok for a few days and then started having stomach pains after eating and especially when walking or moving.. In the evenings it will become bloated and I would feel lightly nauseous when I was walking home, but as soon as I lay down it calmed down. I had these symptoms for 2 weeks and end of 2nd week I started having fever in the evenings.. Sometimes really bad and sometimes moderate.. And shortly after I had Erythema nodosum appeared. Now I have fever almost all the time and feel generally unwell with joint pains and fatigue and a slight dry cough appeared especially when I'm trying to draw air in quickly.. I went to the doctor and he didn't really ask for any of the symptoms just prescribed me antibiotics for 30 days based on erythema nodosum diagnosis.. No further tests or anything like that. I am interested to know if it's a legitimate practice or should I seek more tests to determine the exact cause and if there is any link with my stomach condition (it has improved by the way with the change in my diet- no caffeine, no dairy, no gluten and no alcohol or sugar) thanks!

Due to hair loss I switched over to Morphine. The hair loss goes on. While taking Tramadol for 5 month I've already lost 2/3 of my long and thick hair. In about 3 month I'll be bold - as a woman.
Tramadol elevated my mood. Morphine doesn't. It might even depress me - who knows? Taking 60mg at onc ...
