From this study (6 days ago):
Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.
The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.
My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.
From this study (3 months ago):
Severe depression (suicidal thoughts, inability to do anything, extremely dark/unhappy thoughts) while on Norco (5/325) for a few days, which lasted until I stopped using Norco. After I stopped taking the Norco a few sdays ago I still feel depressed, but symptoms are not nearly as bleak. I have never had depression in my 51 years prior to this experience...really scary!
