From this study (4 days ago):
I had mirena coil and TVT done about a year ago. Swelling started gradually. The last few months it has been much worse, hardly able to walk some days as even the soles of my feet are water logged. Cannot bend my knees properly as the back of my knees are so fluid filled.On the occasions that it is red, it is extremely painful. Fluid pills from the doctor were doubled in strength, yet even they do not help.

I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing

My question is was this on Modafinil/Provigil/Nuvigil and if so which one please?
The comment below you is talking about statin which is a cholesterol reducing drug, so was wondering whether you were talking about the same. Thanks in advance.
