Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I had been given an antibiotic and an antiseptic mouth rinse. A thrush infection followed. I was treated for that but the coated tongue and cotton mouth persist.
From this study (4 days ago):
I wish to switch out budesonide, which is $1000 per month, to try boswellia serrata instead. I have had success in the past with boswellia for joint pain.
I have rheumatoid arthritis and collagenous colitis.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Neck twitching with muscle spasms
MRI shows no signs of spondylarthropathy
sub centimeter vertebral lesions
