Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 days ago):
I take a 325 mg aspiran every dayy
From this study (1 week ago):
started taking this drug in Dec 2011 for weight loss for 24 days and during that time developed pulsatile tinnitus which has continued 24/7 for the last 27 months - have seen ENTs, neurologists, gp, chiropractor, acupuncturist to try to cure the condition. I've had MRIs and MRAs of the head and brain, carotid artery as well as a lumbar puncture to see if it might be a build up on spinal fluid - all tests came back with good results. Is phentermine hydrochloride the cause of my pulsatile tinnitus? is there a medication that can reverse the symtoms?
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have chiari (decompressed), Syringomyelia, Intracranial hypertension, Tethered cord (surgery), CranioCervical Instability, Ehlers Danlos with mixed connective tissue disorder, crohns, afib, superventricular tachycardia and mast cell activation disorder
