    I have been taking Forteo since November 2014 and notice that I have begun to swell more than I ever had. My skin feels like a water balloon. I take Lasix and Synthroid also. Lasix helps but does not get rid of the swelling. I am a 68 year old female and at 13 years of age I had Thrombocytopenic Purpura. and had my spleen removed. Now I read that the swelling is normal for my age and taking Forteo.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I have epilepsy and chronic migraine syndrome, I always have a headache one side of my head. I have seizures everyday. Since last April, I have had one sort of a rash or another. I have not felt well for this entire time too. I have already come of Phenytoin, Atorvastatin, Lamictal and Topiramate. As I have been thinking it was one of my drugs. But it only makes things calmer for a couple of weeks and then the symptoms return to how they were before. I am waiting to see a rheumatologist currently, so still unaware of what is causing my problems.
    I have had a CRP test and that was 9 at the time of the test. Now my smptoms are growing again, I don't know if that makes it likely it might be higher. I have spent this past year in a situation that makes you feel like you are being attached by your own body. It's very frightening when you feel as though you are going through this and people can't always see the rash but it is definitely attacking the skin.
