From this study (4 days ago):
Never had diarrhoea as severe with flare ups of the condition.
From this study (7 days ago):
Have had diarrreah since my acid reflux; now it can be solid at times, watery stools, and or floating pieces of stool. I also am incredibly anxious brought on by all this. My anxiety is over the top.
From this study (1 week ago):
I have had severe bone, muscle, joint pain in shoulders, knees, and hips all over actually. In the past 3 months I have began taking additional Magnesium through a tablet from Jigsaw company called Magnesium w/srt. Includes 5 mg Vit. B6 as pyrodoxal-5-Phophate 5 mg, folate, dimagasium Malate 500mg, Malic Acid 1550mg.
this has greatly helped with the inability to relax muscles for the past 4 years, yeah, very painful especially in my shoulders. So I believe that the priolec and the HCT in the Benicar HCT, depleated my magnesium in my system. I did not have a blood test for magnesium before taking it for a few months,but did have a magnesium blood test recently and showed normal levels but lower level of potassium, took dr. recommended potassium script and done with that now. Now that I don't have sever muscle constriction after the magnesium I do still suffer severe joint and bone pain with no reason that I can see as to why it comes on or why it stops. I can go for maybe 3 weeks with no pain and then for 2 week have the severe pain or maybe sometimes pain but maybe the edge is off the top a bit. I believe this is related to tollerance of Lorazapam building up. I take the Lorazapam for sleep but it also acts as a bit of a relaxer for my shoulder muscles and sometimes my knee and hip pain will subside. Sometime it works for that better than other times. So let me know what you think. I do know that this when I have the pain, I can't seem to think clearly, I get aggitated to noise, grumpy, need quiet place and try to sleep if I can.

Female 38 I started taking benicar over 6 months ago and recently I have been suffering with severe shoulder, neck and knee pain during the night when sleeping. Its a pain that wakes me up, it feels as if my knees are being crushed. This just started 1 week ago.
