Everyone should become familiar with the signs & symptoms of stroke; in your case, not cuz you're at risk for 1 yourself, but to take quick action if you witness 1 in someone else. ...Read more
What are the signs of a costochondritis relapse/worsening. I also diagnosed with constipation. This morning I couldn't wake up I was dizzy and drowsy?
Not common: Not common but possible with any vaccine. After any vaccine the person/ child can feel drowsy and dizzy and if it happens soon after injection the person shd lie down right away or take the injection lying down. This prevents the blood to drain into the lower extremities by gravity and prevents the brain from being denied oxygen. A common enough cause of 'syncope' after any injection. ...Read more

Insure that your day-night cycle is optimized with respect to a full night's sleep, timing food properly, and exercise. Then insure that you are taking it at night, and that you require that full dose, as opposed to a lower dose. Then you can consider an alertness aid, like NuVigil. ...Read more
