From this study (10 months ago):
I have several bulging discs in neck from c4 through c7.Spinal stenosis, pinched nerves.I also have had numbness and tingling down right arm,although the discs/nerves are problematic on both sides of the neck.
I also have spasms in calves and toes that I haven"t told the doctor about yet.
From this study (11 months ago):
I have used docusate sodium stool softener, and it hasn't helped. I hate to think I will have to take laxatives the rest of my life. I used to go daily. I was taking lortab, and xanax before, and they were changed to clonazepam, and norco. After I was put on the meloxicam, oxybutynin, xanax, and lortab is when the problem started, but even then I could go every other day while taking docusate calcium. By the way, your system does not recognize docusate calcium.
From this study (1 year ago):
Had sigmoidectomy and gastric sleeve
