From this study (7 days ago):
This condition has caused me to have to take 900mg of Neurontin per day, which was prescribed by my Nurse Practioner, after my so called Cardiologist put me on Ranexa. Thank GOD for my Nurse Practioner!! I started having side effects 3 days after being put on this awful drug, saw my Cardio 5 days after and all he had to say was "I have never heard of that before". I was only, LOL "only", having severe pain in my hip down my legs,then I fell a few times because of no balance and ended up having to walk with a cane, only 5 days after being put on Ranexa. Then, my toes started to feel like I had mud squished between them about 2 months into the Neuropathy. Now, 1 year and 2 months later, my legs feel like I have knee socks on sometimes and have been like that for some time along with the squishing mud between my toes. Oh yeah, I have a NEW Cardiologist and a WONDERFUL Personal Injury/Malpractice Attorney too!
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Swelling develops quickly and is usually accompanied by itching and occasional rash. Swelling begins to dissipate after 4-5 hours. It is totally random - two weeks without any swelling, then 3-4 days with itching and swelling at different sites.
