Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 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 (7 months ago):
I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibro Myalgia, Wilsons Syndrome and Hashimoto's Disease for 22 years. I suffered an injury to the pelvic floor this last summer and am now experiencing spikes in blood pressure, anxiety that awakens me suddenly from sleep and sets in shortly after breakfast and general non-specific depression. I am wondering if one or more of these meds might be causing these three symptoms or contributing to any of them. Thank you.
From this study (1 year ago):
Cannot sleep for more than 40 minutes at a time at night. I think this might Br contributing or causing all the other problems, except maybe the vision problems. I am so tired all I want to do is sleep. Although, I never feel rested. I don't have any energy or motivation. I have discontinued both medication as of today. Beginning some new bedtime habits to uencourage falling asleep faster & staying asleep. Those seem to be my two biggest problems. Recently, about two months ago, eliminated artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup from my diet. Also, began using a TENS init and am going to start using it more ofte to relieve arthritis pain and sinus problems.
