Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.
The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.
My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.
From this study (5 months ago):
All lesions necrosis
I live in chronic pain and fatigue
From this study (7 months ago):
Struggle to focus at times, procrastinating, lack drive etc. and dizzy when bending over.
Joint pain in right elbow (last few weeks on and off), left hip (5 days ago),right hand (4 days ago),left foot (4 days ago and underneath (heel area) making it difficult to walk).
I sleep well with Circadin (melatonin based sleeping tablet)
and feet, hip do not hurt when laying down at night.
