  • My feet HURT! IT'S LIKE THEY ARE ON FIRE SOMETIMES. Neurologist says I have patchy neuropathy. I think I have Dysautonomia, but doctors just seem to want to bet around the bush and avoid saying that is what I have. I have som many diagnosed symptoms of Dysautonomia it isn't funny. Also I have been on Zocore for 13 yrs because I have high cholesterol. An my primary physician keeps changing my Thyroid medication strength all the time. I ache all the time, I have irregular heart beat, mild heart murmur, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, heital hernia, suffer constipation one day and diarrhea the next, Have had colonoscopy no polyps. I've also been diagnosed as having migraine headaches. Sometimes I have hot flashes and other times I am freezing...even in the Texas summer! Lately I have more problems falling asleep which makes me really tired. Besides I feel like people think I am a hypochondriac. I am sick of feeling bad Help!

    I am a 41 y/o female and had also had been taking simvistatin.
    The symptoms I had were severe leg and arm muscle pain and severe foot pain. I spent most of my time on simvistatin being told I was a hypochondriac and that the pain couldn't be that bad and that I was using the pain as an excuse to lie in bed. Well, I knew there was risk of rhabdomyolysis while taking this drug, but the symptoms I had started out being very subtle. The next thing I knew I was having unbearable wake-you-up at night pain and could only walk distances early in the day before the foot pain would become unbearable. I decided it had to be the simvistatin so I discontinued the medication immediately and within a week or two the pain was gone! I refuse to take any other statin and am now on lipofen.

    I am a 49 y/o female. I have severe gluten intolerance. having been off gluten for about 6 months and not seeing as much improvement as I hoped for a friend with food allergies suggested I might have a problem with dairy. so I gave up milk and all of derivatives, cassein, whey, lactose.... the burning in feet stopped within days. That was 7 months ago if I eat just the smallest out of dairy the burning comes back. You are so very right it isn't funny it is painful.

  • Most of these drugs were reported under MedWatch by me. I am sure the hospital in Atlanta was notified about red yeast rice (monascus purpureus)upon admission for rectal bleeding.
    Once you have stevens johnson syndrome you never, never get over it. After 14 radiation treatments, I was burned internally and externally with the same bullous rashes over the entire pelvis.
