I get diarrhoea only at night time. I take Endep only at night... and Lyrica 150mg at night (75mg in the morning)... and the Pristiq in the morning.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have Raynaud's syndrome, but even while in the office, my arms feel like they are immersed in ice water; my right leg will periodically "buckle" and wobble at the knee while I'm standing at a kitchen counter getting my food ready; my alarm goes off at 6:30, and about 2 days during the week, I hit the snooze button the max # of times and am late for work

I have sydenhams, dystonia and raynards. I have all from rhuematic fever, once you get one autoimmune disease my specialist says its not unusual to get others... the only thing that helps is living in Spain and in the winter gloves and socks!
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have to add the elbow pain started after using a heavy reciprocating saw.
The leg pain started after running a 10K. Went to ortho dr. Had physical therapy for hip flexor. now have pretty severe hip and leg pain but running
again. ...but freaking out after reading about pristiq and joint pain. I went on and off the pristiq.
Stopped it about a week ago. Didn't help....single, long travel for job, son who is schizophrenic,
Financially recovering from a 2 year unemployment period. Fix all that and I wouldn't be depressed!
