Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
After I eat I get a burning sensation and vomit a little bit and it burns when I vomit.
From this study (1 day ago):
After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.
From this study (2 days ago):
When I swallow liquids I get overwhelming chest pain. The pain is growing and lasting longer
