From this study (6 days ago):
I have exhausted all drug options for overactive bladder due to "resistance." Including Botox injections that had moderate results but only lasted almost two months. Also, every injection was painfully felt although I was prepped with a pain minimizing treatment. I am searching for help if any of my medication are causing the resistance.
From this study (2 weeks ago):

You should be tested for Lyme. Igenex out of California is the best lab for accurate testing..
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I was prescribed Imatinib for 3 years after GIST was removed, to try prevent recurrence, Over 2 years into course, developed severe cough and cold which have persisted, more or less, to this day. Was hospitalised early this year to get rid of gunge in my lungs and afterwards (March) had a bronchoscopy. Within hours my right ear had blocked and so it has remained. 3 weeks ago had grommet fitted but that hasn't worked - it became 'crusted over' and the crust has apparently been removed but it will almost certainly (in my view) happen again - because I still have this horrible gunge in my nose and it sets like concrete, which is presumably what happened in my ear.
