Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Mostly feet and leg pain. Also hands and face feel same thing but less severe.
It is worse in the evenings. Extremities feel swollen & hot like I'm getting a fever. Temp is mildly elevated and nothing appears to be swollen.
I am exhausted by the smallest amount of exercise, even walking a short distance. For so s reason, I can do activities & physical therapy in water (preferably cool) without much discomfort.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Symptoms worse when I restart 150 mgs of flucoazole. Seem to very slowly get better when I discontinue diflucon. Am taking aprazolam and seroquel.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
