Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I have been taking Vicodin/Hydrocodone 500MG for at least 8 month I started to notice moderate pain in the abdominal area it is in the upper part, sometimes middle part it varies. Sometimes nausea develops but not so much as the discomfort in the abdominal region. Could this be due to taking Vicodin/Hydrocodone? The stomach discomfort had started almost 4 months ago and I still have it.

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
    I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
    The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.
