Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (9 hours ago):

  • The pulsating is not in rhythm with my heartbeat. It is fast and random beats. It is not constant. It is worse at night and if laying on the couch watching tv. Putting pressure and massaging right behind the ear and on the neck seem to help temporarily but returns after removing pressure. This has been going on for three days. I have been on the antibiotics for 6 days.

  • Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 02/2013 due to flare-up and bloody diarrhea, another flare in 02/14 with C. Diff. and bloody diarrhea. Took Flagyl with minor side effects. Another flare 06/2014 with no bleeding which started to ease up 3 weeks later but 7/12/2014 it became worse and I re-flared all over again. Also had bloody diarrhea this time. Doctor put me back on Flagyl now I have severe bloating/gas that won't subside, severe center chest pain just under chest plate, shortness of breath (can't seem to catch breath and every time I tried to take a deep breath I can't and get a weird audible noise that comes from the center of my chest where pain is.
