- 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?
- 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!

- Mirena /pulmonary embolism
Hi , I was on mirena @ six weeks post delivery of my second sons birth in August of 2011. In march of 2013 I felt extremely tired , sluggish , like I was sick . I also was experiencing tachycardia and fever . I went in to docs and he said I had a respiratory infection and sent me home with an inhaler . The next day it just didn't seem right why wasnt I getting any better ? I couldn't take care of my kids , my chest was racing , pushing a shopping cart was like trying to push a car !! I went into the ER thinking maybe I needed done kind of antibiotic nope I was wrong . They quickly hooked me up for EKG monitoring a speedy heart rate of 160 Bpm! Tested lung function , cat scan all to find 3 blood clots in my left lung ;( a 5 day hospital stay rushed by ambulance I must say the care was incredible and triaged very appropriately . They saved my life ! Now my questions ring loud !! Why ??? I was 33 years of age , healthy , low blood pressure , excercised on a regular basis . I smoked occasionally but not daily . I spoke with many docs and none of them felt mirena played a part in clot ! I'm shocked ! Really ? I had the iud removed by my choice not my docs revommendation but just letting all you ladies know that this was my experience and I am very skeptical of the mirena !! It's great not to get pregnant but it's better to be healthy and alive just saying ;) do your research ladies !! ;) I would love to hear from anyone that had similar experiences !!
- 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 (2 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 (7 days 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 (1 week 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.
