Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (13 hours ago):

  • It has been seven years since I took the Levaquin and Cipro and from what I understand once you have symptoms you shouldn't take it again. Even though mine was documented in medical records, my doctor gave me Cipro which I took unaware of the connection of the two. The damage from the quinolones just keeps finding something new to attack. Now its in my head and abdominal area. What started out in my abdomen as a small "punctured" burning feeling right near my belly button, has turned into my whole "six pack" area hurting with movement, especially forward. The trigeminal neuralgia has been there for a year now and is very severe.

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • I would like to know if the medical treatment i observe for 11 years might influence the apparition of chilaidity's syndrom.

    My medical treatment : abilify 15mg
    carbamazepine LP 400mg (2*200mg)
    paroxetine 20mg

    Abdominal meteorism began after the first year of these drugs, increased during several years at a very high level then stable for 4 or 5 years approximatively. Occasionnaly, I notice a high flatulency.

    Despite of activated wood charcoal during 2 or three weeks (several tries), meteorism hasn't decreased at all.

    For information, my bmi = 24.13 (body mass index)
    my fmi = 22.64 (fat mass index)
