Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (23 hours ago):

  • After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • Numbness has occurred on and off for several years. Always in upper left back near shoulder blades. Left hand feels like it may go numb and so leg (this is very subtle though). Exercise, potentially heat and stress induce the numbness feeling. The bladder issues have also gone on several years and have probably led tobthe insomnia. Very anxious person but find peace with exercise. I also have high heart rate (99) and I exercise every day. Also consume caffeine.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Became irritable and high strung a couple of weeks after Mirena was placed. I did not notice this side effect, but others around me noticed it, after 2-3 months started going into a manic phase for several weeks followed by depression. Told gynecologist, she removed it and I began feeling myself again after a couple of weeks. I have a family history of bipolar, but no personal history of any mental/emotional problems. A rare side effect, but my system cannot handle synthetic hormones. Now have a copper IUD in place without any side effects. Glad I had a supportive gynecologist, she told me it normally causes depression in sensitive people, but when we really researched it, we found there are cases of other mental emotional side effects in sensitive people.
