Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
mild granularity of bowel wall plus loose bowels
From this study (3 days ago):
dreams are always about me defending myself against some type of physical attack, usually involving animals of some sort. These dreams began about a month or so after I started taking atorvastin. I take 20 mg of it per day and do so in the evening as instructed by doctor. I very seldom experienced dreaming of any kind prior to this. The dreams always make me respond physically in my sleep and I have accidentally kicked my wife during one of these events.
From this study (4 days ago):
Have high liver enzymes sugar .is high and have occasional pain in stomach. Now having tightness in upper abdomen possibly. Caused by gallbladder with 30% ejection. Dr says remove but I am conflicted since I just have mild Gb symptoms. Most of pain on left side. Tightness is daily.
