From this study (1 week ago):
For the last year I seem to be bruising a lot easier and any cut I get takes for ever to heal. My kitten scratched me the other day and I had to wrap my hand to get to a sink to put it under water and try to make the bleeding stop. I wrapped it completely in guaze to make it stop. It actually scared me to see so much blood from a cat scratch! It looked like someone had been stabbed. The next day my hand swelled up and bruised like it had been hit with a hammer!
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I take Cyclobenzaprine in the event I have a back spasm due to my spinal stenosis. I do not take it on a regular basis. I had a sever back spasm last week as a result i had to take two 10mg Cyclobenzaprines over a two day period starting on a Friday. On Monday a little razor nick from Friday turned into full blown folliculitis. My lymph nodes are pulsing in pain and my neck and scalp are are itching. 37, Caucasion, 205 lbs, male.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
When my father passed away I was prescribed Diazepam which helped with anxiety. I had also lost my appetite and thanks to Diazepam I take 2mg 15 minutes before dinner and can always eat and finish my food. If I stopped taking Diazepam I would probably not be able to eat as much. I've been on Diazepam 4 years.
