Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Numbness and pain is worse at night. Started Wearing a brace at night which really helps. Also soaking in warm Epson salts and then holding a cold glass of ice helps. Sometimes the numbness just about goes away during the day, even thought I perform normal activities.


  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • This has been diagnosed as a sinus infection about one week after beginning Farxiga. This was nearly 2 months ago. The pain in the jaw seems to be getting a little worse and only using a nasal saline solution provides some relief.


  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Taking weight loss medicine. Can that cause obstructed bowel?
