Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
I believe the only change to my diet or drug usage was 6 months on sertraline. I am going to wean off the medication and hopefully the skin will improve. I have psoriasis in my family but have never experienced it until last year and it is worsening.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I had a knee replacement while on humira and I was wondering if humira could be causing or contributing to adhesions. Like maybe too much collagen in my body. They are very bad and did not go away after Manuel manipulation. I'm thinking of using a different drug. I may need them cut. Please help me. Thank You,
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I'm Agoraphobic and don't leave my house so unable to attend GP or local hospital to have this investigated.
I'm morbidly obese - due to combination of drugs listed above and which have known side effects of weight gain (not due to diet) I don't eat fried food or red meat and eat plenty of fresh fruit.
I'm panic-stricken this might be Paget's disease of the breast. I've been trying to research via the Internet but my symptoms don't seem to fit anything - not Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Rash, but has similarities to Paget's. I can't find any sign of a lump in either breast but don't know what this redness and 'spreading' of it is on my left nipple and areola.
