From this study (1 week ago):
I believe alot of my symptoms are related but after seeing 7 different specialists and them running many different tests I still don't have a diagnosis. Many of the tests are abnormal but nothing seems to fit completely together. My gastroenterologist is referring me to a surgeon for severe gastro reflux that can't be controlled with medication. I can't take the ferrous sulfate because of nausea.

I'm not sure what state you live in but I have researched this same issue and THC the active ingredient in Marijuana and a few other active chemicals will calm the stomach and increase appetite. I'm not a user but I am considering it under medical advice.

Have never had high blood pressure. Have been on Restasis for 6 weeks and have had a rise in blood pressure.

You said you never had high blood pressure and had a rise after 6 weeks of restasis - the exact same thing is happening to me! Did your BP go back to normal - did you stop the restasis? I have just stopped using it to see if my bp will go back to normal but didn't know how long the drug remains in your system - thanks for any info!!
