Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
Urination much better during the day
Bad reaction to post operative percosets
From this study (2 months ago):
Had cervical neck surgery on C2 thru C4 in February 2011. Left hand got numb about a year later. A local neurologist said I had carpal tunnel and I was operated on in April 2013. No improvement. Had additional neck surgery on C2-C4 in June 2013. No improvement. Could amlodipine besylate 10mg 1/day be causing the problem?
