  • From this study (17 hours ago):

  • I also take hydrocodone for a diagnosis of coxa valga which is a deformity in hips. I was diagnosed with both in 2008. But just recently the muscle twitches started. I only take like 2 pills per day so I know I don't abuse them.

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • Was diagnosed with MRSA following neck surgery. I had been on vancomycin 2g twice a day via IV. My trough levels were not reaching "therapeutic" levels so I was switched to Bactrim DS in late July. Wound is still open and painful. About three days ago I noticed blisters on my chest. I had shingles two years ago and these blisters I have now are painfully similar. I'm very concerned that I have shingles again and want to know what impact having MRSA will have on shingles.
