Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 days 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 (2 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.
From this study (8 months ago):
I have some type of autoimmune disorder. looks like lupus but not sure. lesion on my brain located on my Thalmus looks like low grade tumor or MS. I have sick sinus syndrome and Long QT. I have a pacemaker because my heart stopped. I had half my liver removed due to giant hemangiomas. no one understands or can figure out what's wrong with me. I feel elderly at times because my bones are deteriorating and I have shrunk 2 inches this year
