Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 hours ago):
causes acute thirst and dehydration symptoms that I treat with water and ice between water intake. I have had a bout with a bulging disc in the past but this was quite different. I wasn't having any of these symptoms. I was very really good except I was having this drainage to my throat and ears. When I would cough, it was mostly nonproductive so that is why I took two Musinex DM tabs before bed with a full glass of water followed by orange juice and bread stick. Two hours before I had taken two vitamins C tabs for the first time in a month. After taking the pills and falling asleep, I woke with a back ache. I just thought I needed to increase my water, so I did. When I attempted to get up for the restroom from all the water, I was in acute back pain and it became such a struggle that I was using the furniture for support. No pain down the leg or foot. Such hard to turn over, stand up, or walk! It has been 10 hours and I am still having symptoms but not as severe, If I fall asleep and don't continue the water, the symptoms return.
From this study (3 days ago):
I was diagnosed with a Hyphema in my right eye. The eye had not been traumatized or injured in any way before this condition occurred. The Ophthalmologist informed me this condition is usually cause by Trauma or injury to the eye. I had no such trauma or injury and the ocular pressure in both eyes was elevated.The eye that had the Hyphema bleed was quite elevated (34) upon diagnosis. Upon treatment the eye is improving, however I have remained concerned about the possible cause. Since that time, I have only one prescribed medication (Spiriva)I had been taking for a year or so. I reviewed the information pamphlet for the Spiriva and it does state "stop taking Spiriva if you experience New or worsened increased pressure in the eyes" I have stopped taking Spiriva.
