Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
diagnosed first with lupus then changed to mixed connective tissue disease. I have had this for 25 years becoming increasingly more debilitation. Plaquenil helped for a while but I quit taking it.
Lately I have found that taking potassium prescription strength helps my fatigue and muscle strength. at times i have periodic paralysis when i am extremely fatigued. K does help this but it gets up so high in my blood level my physcian worries about it causing a heart attack.
also my blood ammonia gets up to 82.. I am so sleepy I am almost comatose . I take lactalose but if I quit taking it my blood ammonia creeps up. My liver and kidneys are fine. Drs cannot find what is causing the high ammonia. thank you Catherine Dale
From this study (2 months ago):
I started taking prempro on 2/20/14 during the week I noticed increased fatigue and muscle/joint pain. Yesterday 2/28/14. The pain was so bad. My hips and sharp shooting pain down the front of my thighs. I also feel down more than I had.
From this study (12 months ago):
Around 2-3 months ago I began to get what appeared to be tennis elbow in the right arm and also in the left arm but to a lesser degree. The 'tennis elbow' has now dissipated by about 85% although. It meant I couldn't straighten my right arm fully and simple tasks became awkward and sometimes slightly painful. Now I am having muscles pains in both arms in my inner forearms. Again it means that I am struggling to do simple tasks. Lifting anything heavy is very very difficult. These specific symptoms have worsened over the past 4-5 days.
