Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I had an awful dream where I was being attacked by rats. I normally have very vivid dreams that leave me feeling extremely strange upon waking up, but this dream was just awful. I woke myself up from it. After being fully awake, I shut my eyes and started dreaming it once again and it wasn't where it left off. It was as if things happened while I was awake and I fell back into them, in sync with the dream. It made me extremely uncomfortable and afraid. I felt one bite me on the leg and when I turned on the light to look at my leg, there was a red mark right where it bit me and my leg was tingling and itching. I don't know how to feel about it.
From this study (2 months ago):
Our son is very high IQ and has ADHD. He had been on Adderal xr until recently. The psychiatrist said that that may be causing the tics. He has been off the Adderall for 3 days now and still is having this body spasms...it's very weird looking and he does not realize it's happening.
From this study (3 months ago):
Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.
The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.
My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.

I think a lot of you have disseminated histoplasmosis. Histoplasmosis is carried by bats.
