From this study (1 week ago):
Three doses ended up in hospital very severe chest pains. Scale 1 to 10 I called them a 15.
From this study (1 month ago):
NOTE: Patient began illness on 2/13/14 & prescription began on 2/14/14, Symptoms occurred approximately 5 days later.
My mom was prescribed tamiflu and a cpack of arithimiazine while she had pneumonia and was thought to maybe have the flu. After four -five days of taking the prescriptions she began to develop lesions on her hands and had extreme muscle pane & joint pain in her arms, neck, back, knees and ankles, she also had extreme tiredness which progressed after 10 days. She was then prescribed 20 mg prednisone twice a day to remove the lesions, however the lesions did not clear up, but the pain was alleviated to where my mom was not suffering and could move better. After the 10 days she returned to work (legal assistant) and after four days her & being off the prednisone her ankles swelled to abnormal proportions. She then digressed even further by week four, more swelling, no energy and joint pain and movement along with more lesions continued. Note: Night sweats and low temps of 96 & 97 occured. Chills and sweats have been constant throughout the day during this time. March 14 she was put pack on predinsone at 29mg daily, as of March 15th she noticed no signs of energy gain, or relief from pain as before. Will check with her today. She is unable to walk with ease around the house, or lift medium weight objects due to the lesions. She has recently been diagnosed with Sweets Disease (maybe)

Some of the symptoms and drugs I added are not 100 percent correct I just could not find them in the drop downs. I just selected what I thought was closest.
