Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
My 19 yr old daughter is a Type 1 diabetic since the age of three. She has been having dizzy spells where she says she feels nauseous and like she's going to pass out about once a day around dinner time. Does not correlate with blood sugars but her blood pressure drops to around 94/72 with a heart rate of 122. Could this be related to Prozac that she's been on for years?
From this study (1 week ago):
Forgetting what everyday things are called several times a day. Also find I am not always typing what I intended so have to reared and sometimes retype things. Mainly just replacing a word with something else and no, this is not an autocorrect situation.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My father has been taking strong painkillers Gabapentin for a trapped sciactic nerve. Drs feel it is too risky to operate. He has suffered fainting spells - some with 4 to 5 months intervals but in the past 8 days has had two attacks.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Kind regards Sue
