Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
After an elbow injury I have received x-rays and been to doctors and they believe it is just a contusion to the elbow. The pain continues to increase, it has become constant pain in the elbow (where the injury occurred), down to my wrist, and up to my shoulder. I cannot move it without sending shooting pains that immobilize me down to my fingers and up to my shoulder. I have been having it in a sling, and icing it and taking ibuprofen and tramadol which only barely dull the pain.
Is this really only a contusion? How long should I wait before seeking more medical help

Will taking Ultram for pain cause a flare up in ulcerative colitis?
From this study (4 days ago):
I started taking amoxotine only 10mg per day to build up slowly. After 3 days I developed a eyelid twitch of the left eyelid which I did not at first connect to the medication as I could not see anything about this within the list of side effects. The twitching got worse and more frequent on a daily basis and by 6th day it was several times per minute and extremely annoying. so I googled and saw that despite it not being in the official list of side effects, that it does appear to be a side effect for a lot of people. 3 days after stopping the medication, I am still experiencing some twitching, and my eye socket is actually aching, but the twitching is getting less and less. I should add that I have never suffered any kind of tics or facial twitching in the past, with or without any medication, although I do suffer adhd and chronic migraine, and anxiety.
