From this study (3 weeks ago):
Jan 2014 CDiff, mucus in stool, very weak sick, stool incontinence 3-4 times a day. Had been on most meds since March 2014 after diagnosis of UC/Crohn's/Proctitis, in July I started to loose my hair in handfulls. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I started shaking a lot and noticed facial tremors and inability to communicate well at times. I thought I had no severe adverse reactions until early September. Tiredness, fatigue, weakness I thought were normal for my diagnosis. I was also experienced worsening of shaky hands and facial tremors, jerking muscles at night and hyperhidrosis( completely drenching my bed and clothes. Five weeks ago I thought I just had a seasonal sore throat, but it continued past 3 weeks. Mentioned to doctor and she put me on nexium. Nexium did not help at all in fact throat became worse, felt raw and like someone was squeezing my neck with their hands / choking me. Difficulty swallowing and felt like I had a hard rock in the middle of my throat. It worsened after each dose of Cymbalta, after noticing this I have stopped all medications for 3 days and now suffer with a dry cough and difficulty breathing. My hands still shake but not as much, have notice less in facial tremors.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
