Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 days 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 (2 weeks 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 (3 weeks ago):
I had Pan ulverative colitis since 2000. two years ago had bad pain in joints, back neck. and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia
this year the dr diagnosed me as lupus

burning sensation in hands and feet all day and night
