Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Also have Bartonella. Probably having a herxheimer reaction.

    Dysphalgia has been intermittent and infrequent, but episodes last for several days.

    Begins suddenly, rather than getting progressively worse.

    Can swallow liquids (including thick ones like milkshakes) without trouble, but solids take concentrated effort and cause pain. Have pain in one ear, and swallowing solids increases it along with giving me pain on the right side of my throat.

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I'm taking biaxin and neurontin and was wondering if these two together or one of them seperate is causing me to have my tongue feel like the skin has been scorched off. So when I drink soft drinks it makes my tongue feel like I'm actually drinking acid. I also have a bad taste in my mouth, as if I have been sucking on an aspirin. Augmenin made my mouth do this as well.
