From this study (4 days ago):
A rash developed on both sides of my stomach, just above the hip bone. It resembles contact dermititis, but i was not exposed to anything out of the ordinary.
It forms small watery filled blisters that itch, and later form a tiny scab.
It is only localized to the area above the hip.
From this study (1 week ago):
took up training 2 months ago and cannot sustain the full hour of training without feeling faint, dizzy and slightly nauseous.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a low thyroid in 2010, but was not really having problems. In 2012, I was prescribed venlafaxine and soon started having episodes of passing out, weight gain, photosensitivity, and my anxiety got much worse. Should I stop taking the venlafaxine.
