From this study (3 days ago):
Started psych meds in May 2013. Had bad bout with acid reflux from April to November 2013. Recently stopped taking Protonix for my reflux, as it was not helping the burning mouth issue and had adverse side effects. Try to take minimal prescribed medications. Burning mouth symptoms started in December 2014 after a sinus infection and bronchitis and 2 rounds of antibiotics. Only been on thyroid medicine for 2 months.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.
From this study (1 month ago):
Just don't feel well every day. Feel crappy every day. Blood sugars are okay. I spend every weekend on the couch with headache and stress. Takes me days to get over the stress of the work week. This has been happening for more than 2 years. My MD has given me anti-depressants twice, which only makes things worse. My thyroid readings are low, but the MDs I've gone to don't want to do anything about that since they're still within the "normal" range. I don't want normal ... I want optimal! How frustrating!
