- Melatonin reduces essential tremor of the hand
After taking Melatonin 1mg as a sleep aid for several nights, I noticed that my essential tremor of the hand was showing improvement. Within a week the tremor was almost unnoticeable, and I could print and write neatly, even when slightly stressed at work. I haven't seen this response reported anywhere else; have other people noticed this effect?
- Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
Dentist  tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
- Cfs/fibro, migraine
A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
- Latuda stoped hypoglcymia (1 response)
I have hypoglycemia and have had to be carefull of my sugar intake. Started taking Latuda and now i can eat sugar like most people do
- Health issues and struggles
I have numerous health issues. Some I've lived with not realizing they were there. Others are caused by meds I've taken in the past or am still using now.
Lupus is the most recent and biggest trouble I have right now. It is caused by the one drug that finally gave me control of my seizures
Some of the worst troubles have been TBI from birth. Epilepsy my entire life. Brain tumor ( surgery to remove it in 1982) Graves Disease. RA and most recently Lupus ( caused by the keppra)

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I have suffered with migraine headaches since I was 12 years old. I am in peri-menopause and believe hormones have a lot to do with my migraines. When my hormones fluctuate during ovulation and my period I seem to get migraines. I just went to a naturopath and he put me on an elimination diet. I was on 1 day and ate chicken, rice, sunflower toast, eggs, grapes and apple. He Put me on progesterone and told me to continue estrogen and add dhea. The next day I had a vicious migraine.
From this study (1 week ago):
I have fibromyalgia and symptoms are more intense.
Hearing loss started about 3 years ago.
Hair loss started about 4 1/2 years ago but has slowed down.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic pain syndrone, as well as panic and anxiety syndrone, and now restless leg syndrone. I am concerned that the tremor might be Parkinson's Disease and I need to know how to find out the answer. I LOVE the cymbalta for pain, stiffness and especially the panic and anxiety but I do want to be certain that I don't have Parkinson's.
