My teeth and gums have gone from excellent to extreme since my first day on the actiq suckers. I recently had to have 3 crowns done and one tooth extracted... all due to my use of the actiqs.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a mild food poisoning or something that seemed Iike that, and it lasted for 2 days then improved. I was feeling ok for a few days and then started having stomach pains after eating and especially when walking or moving.. In the evenings it will become bloated and I would feel lightly nauseous when I was walking home, but as soon as I lay down it calmed down. I had these symptoms for 2 weeks and end of 2nd week I started having fever in the evenings.. Sometimes really bad and sometimes moderate.. And shortly after I had Erythema nodosum appeared. Now I have fever almost all the time and feel generally unwell with joint pains and fatigue and a slight dry cough appeared especially when I'm trying to draw air in quickly.. I went to the doctor and he didn't really ask for any of the symptoms just prescribed me antibiotics for 30 days based on erythema nodosum diagnosis.. No further tests or anything like that. I am interested to know if it's a legitimate practice or should I seek more tests to determine the exact cause and if there is any link with my stomach condition (it has improved by the way with the change in my diet- no caffeine, no dairy, no gluten and no alcohol or sugar) thanks!
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My nine year old suffered a cerebral infraction last year august 1,2012. I was told by MRI results he would never recover and be a prisoner in his own body for the duration of his life. I was asked to pull his life support ,never considered it, after seven months of staying by his bed side he became so aware the dr. Ordered another MRI bc according to the one showing damage from cerebral infraction , he was not suppose to ever be aware again. MRI showed all damage gone, no explanation how he seemed to heal himself . He within six months of overdose and cerebral infarction starting having kidney stones and blood in urine. Now he just begun having seizures. Dr.s are stating they believe from bacteria from traque this would probably be due to dr. Never admitting or finding 'conclusive' findings for cause of cerebral infarction even though son remained at this hospital a year. It was not until he moved up to transitional care unit from picu that any blood work was done to try to see what May have caused it. I was told by a neurosurgeon that the blood work was taken and they could find nothing within himself that caused c.i, however same nureosurgeon had to come apologize to me after transitional c. Unit sent out for first blood work in October 2012 for a cerebral that occurred aug 1,2012 now he is in another hospital and is having seizures , I'm being told they believe May be caused by bacteria from traque . Hospital never admitted fentanyl was involved with cerebral although they also gave no other probable cause . My son is currently in mcv Richmond being placed on a induced coma due to seizures
