Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.

  • T on Jul, 17, 2014:

    Took Lutein 3mg - 20mg for long time, over a year. Began having bad headaches and when I quit taking Lutein the headaches stopped also. Began taking 3mg Lutein twice more and same results each time. I had cataract surgery in Nov of 13 and tried once more with 3mg and headaches returned. Subsequently, I stopped taking Lutein. Even Occuvite gave me the same headaches so I quit it also. At 72, this man does not need more pain.
