From this study (1 month ago):
pain and heaviness in arms and legs, comes and goes. relieved by heat but gets worse immediately once heat is removed.
From this study (2 months ago):
Can't add more drugs-the button does not work. I suspect Equate Ibuprofen Tablets to be the most likely cause of the severe morning leg cramps.
From this study (3 months ago):
I had two unexplained broken bones within a one year period.
Weak urine stream with intermittent breaks.
High potassium level readings. First: 6.2 Second 5.2
When diagnosed at ER with esophagitis was also suspected to have peptic ulcers due to stress.
