From this study (1 week ago):
I am now unable to walk with my crutches, my primary doctor put in for a wheelchair. This CRPS is getting worse and worse every day and spreading to both feet both knees both legs.
From this study (1 week ago):
My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Was on Metformin (1000 mg per day), which was recently increased with a goal of 2000 mg per day (gradual increase). In the AM, I usually start with a cup of coffee, then breakfast, followed by more coffee (two cups per day). I take metformin immediately following meals. I fix up my coffee with organic half & half, and pure stevia. When drinking coffee, or dairy products, I experience severe upset stomach, without bowl and abdominal sounds. Is it possible I developed a form of lactose intolerance? This is the "only" dairy I use and prefer to use unsweetened almond milk in place of dairy, except for coffee. This morning, as an experiment, I decided not to fix any coffee and the symptoms have subsided so far today.
