From this study (2 months ago):
I had back surgery @ Loyola Hospital in 2011 causing an infection called staphylococcal infection developed a fever and had to endure a high power medical wash never suspecting it was the methotrexate. I have been battleing with open soars, deep depression extreme hypersensitivity, chest pains and shortness of breath to the point that I am experiencing stroke like symptoms. My R.A. kept me on this medicine and would not answer my questions.
From this study (3 months ago):
Symptoms getting old... Laxatives don't even work anymore, which is scary. I have no health insurance, self-pay for meds thru psychiatrist and have not had a medical physical in around 3-4 yrs. Have 7 yrs clean and sober, but wonder if previous alcoholism and long-term suboxone use have caused possible diabetes? I'm sick of peeing all night long, and always have to pee 30 min after I take sublingually, then again after another @45 minutes. Crazy. My hands look like lizards from being all dried out. Also, worried about the e-liquid I started 6-8 months ago being a diuretic? Symptoms became drastically worse after; however, I can at least BREATHE smoking it and don't want to stop!
