Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
I take Metformin and Lisinopril daily to help control blood sugar and to protect kidneys (experienced kidney stones approx. 5 years ago). This morning I woke up with hives on back of legs and in hip area, with spreading to feet and ankles.
At work the hives briefly subsided, but I took aspirin on the off chance it would help. Hive began to get worse again approx. 2-3 hrs later. Took 1 pill equaline allergy (Chloropheniramine maleate 4 mg) and within approx. 15 minutes noticed increasing sensation of swelling in my lips, and now numbness developing approx. 30 minutes after taking.
From this study (6 months ago):
I have a colostomy, hypertension, hypothroidism, weakened immune system, chronic depression, renal failure - stage 2, liver disease, arthritis, and fybromyalgia.
I have been cold for two days, ache in my back and liver, neck is stiff, throat is sore, body temp is 96.3, b/P is 151/101, pulse is 86. Do I have pneumonia?
