Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Although I drink plenty of water and sometimes Gatorade, I have severe redness under eyes (upper cheeks). I already have dark circles under eyes though this does not seem related. Redness started about 3 months ago and is unaffected by over the counter creams. I get plenty of sleep, 6-8 hours per night and do not have problems falling asleep.

  • Stopped the use of Axiron approximately 10 days ago. Have had two episodes of dizziness, rapid heat-beat and severe sweating lasting approximately 30 minutes each time. Heart rate returned to normal pattern after each episode. Stopped using Axiron because of the negative publicity by the parasite legal community.

  • Been on prednisone for 4 days just started feeling well then ate something that made me relapse and now back at square 1 dr says its a food allergy I'm trying to limit it and see what it may be. I am wondering if taking the meta alone aka muscle relaxer can define an allergy or weakness. I'm 32 have allergies to sulfa mess I stop breathing but other than that top shape. This is onset and has been for 7 days. Started the prednisone 3 days ago felt better until tonight after a bowl of ice cream. I can drink milk no problem. Ice cream was bunny track vanilla with nuts and peanut butter.
