From this study (5 months ago):
I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.
From this study (2 years ago):
I was on Flovent for 6 years and developed numbness and tingling in my hands and feet, bouts of extreme fatigue, joint and mucle pain, night sweats, forgetfulness, dry mouth and frequent hoarseness, trouble swallowing without liquids. I was diagnosed with idiopathic progressive neuropathy, acid reflux and tennis elbow. I went to two Ear Nose and Throat specialists, a Neurologist and Rheumatolgist and not cause was found then I found most of my symptoms were side effects of Flovent. I switched inhalers two days ago.
