I have just started with swelling in my lower leg and ankle it's very painful wondered if it was gout and maybe the raspberry ketones were causing it
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Noticed a significant drop in lung function and much more mucus to cough up about six months ago. This has made it difficult to cough up. Other conditions are better with medications.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
