From this study (16 hours ago):
I would like to know if cymbalta causes hemorrhagic stroke or can cause more brain bleeding if taken after one hemorrhagic stroke
From this study (1 day ago):
this sensation started as if someone was running a feather across my ear lobe, spread to back of skull and across jaw to exact center. It now itches intensely after a tingling episode. NO pain. Can be exacerbated by position of head as in lowered to read or sew, or when lying down. Thought I could live with it, probably can but the itching after affect is getting to me. Some times, rarely, the tingling get a little more intense as if a tiny electric jolt...very tiny.
