Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days 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.

    I have the same problem. Do you have fibromyalgia? The pain you are describing sounds just like that. I have it but also have SLE ( Lupus) which causes a lot of pain. You can talk to you Dr. about it. There aren't any tests they can do for Fibromyalgia but you can be diagnosed by your symptoms. The most common symptoms feels like you are getting the flu bc of the way your body aches. I describe it as " the flu that never comes". You feel like your getting the flu and you have flu like symptoms but you never get the flu. You just have the aches and pain all the time. I hope you don't have it bc the pain is very hard to have a normal life. Best of luck to you...

    Whenever I forget to take my Lexapro in the morning, I get a high pitched ringing in my ears which starts around 1:00 pm, which won't go away until a few hours after I take the drug.
