From this study (2 months ago):
Still fighting the disease. Also having muscle twitches and heart flutters.
From this study (5 months ago):
18 months ago I experienced pain in my stomach. I saw a physician who after scans suggested that the drugs might be in conflict. He prescribed prontoprazol and the pain disappeared. The pain returned last October but this time Prontoprazol has not solved the problem. I decided to stop taking all medicines except Omeprazol, Diltiazem, and the insulins and while the pain awas reduced it did not disappear. This is obviously not a wise step. There is only stomach discomfort and my appetite is still good and my bowels are working normally. Any suggestions? please
