Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 days ago):
vision can be double or more. always vertical. Most noticeable as double, triple or quadruple vision when looking at thin horizontal lines like high wires. There is always space between thin items like wires. Otherwise more noticeable as very blurry for larger items in vision field.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Urine/bladder control is a result of prostate cancer. I had radioactive implants 10 years ago and PSA has stayed less than .1 ever since.
I have been taking Atacand 5 to 7 years and started felodipine 5 months ago. B.P is running about 140 over 85. Lung-breathing problems began 3-4 years ago. I've been taking Symbicort 3+ years and Started Spiriva 6 months ago. Breathing problems have become more severe with each passing year.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
The side effects of taking meds pop up each time I take them.
I was taking Cipro and Ibuprophen for prostatitus and had stomach pain, vomiting,
diarhea, acid reflux from that, so I stopped taking it even though it helped with prostatitus symptoms. I no longer had nocturia or sudden urges to go, but the burning intensified. Each time one issue is addressed, another issue pops up.
It is so frustrating. Had a flare up of having to pee multiple times during the day yesterday. Slow stream with burning. Flomax helped, but ringing intensified to uncomfortable. What to do, what to do?
