Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • Also have Bartonella. Probably having a herxheimer reaction.

    Dysphalgia has been intermittent and infrequent, but episodes last for several days.

    Begins suddenly, rather than getting progressively worse.

    Can swallow liquids (including thick ones like milkshakes) without trouble, but solids take concentrated effort and cause pain. Have pain in one ear, and swallowing solids increases it along with giving me pain on the right side of my throat.

    Hi, just come over this comment whilst searching similar symptoms I have had. Been feeling under the weather for a while now, symptoms that match lymphoma/bartonella, blood tests and xray have come back fine, any suggestion?

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I feel better than when off the medications but am worries about how much I am taking and drug interactions. I am also concerned about the long term use of all the medications on my body. I also drink alcohol regularly and hope worry about this as well.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Drug was prescribed at 7 weeks postpartum to try and prevent depression. On day 7 of taking 20mgs, I suffered a terrible shock like pain to the right temple, and quickly became abnormally energized as well as fearful. Along with these symptoms diarrhea was present for the next 3 days, and total loss of sleep. Quickly took myself off the drug, and 2 months later started at a lower dose of 10mg. I now have difficulty swallowing saliva, as the muscles feel constricted.
