From this study (7 months ago):
Was in 2 car accidents in Feb., 2012. Mechanic left part off car both times! I have multiple spine injuries but the cord irritation caused shingles to come out on my face. I cant have thoracic surgery till shingles is no longer active. I have numerous new symptoms like high cholesterol and skin fungal infection and distended stomach and autonomic dysreflexia. I have hard time initiating a urine stream and cant push very well to hav a bowel movement.
From this study (1 year ago):
I only take vicodin a few times a week. But have a new disorder, dysphasia, wonder if this could be a side efect of vicodin. Thank you
