From this study (12 hours ago):
Brandon suffers from intermittent 101+ fever for the last 2 years. Been to general m.d. and emergicare. Seems to occur after Advil which he takes for muscle pain/aches.
From this study (4 days ago):
After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.
From this study (6 days ago):
fever and fatigue and loss of appetite
