From this study (13 hours ago):
Last few days I've had a large build up of phlegm in my lungs and a lot of caughing. Wheezing that won't go away. Started Remicade 2 months ago.
From this study (5 days ago):
I went to a Rheumatologist and he said I have Hashimoto disease and said its not serious enough to take meds for. The test is - Thyroid Peroxidase Antiboties - my number is 363. It says that is should be <9. I was wondering if these medications I am on could be causing abnormal reading. I do have severe inflammation due to serious injuries.
From this study (7 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.
