Why do I get severe lower intestinal cramps after taking just 1 500mg Tylenol? Happens 8-10 hours after I take it every time. Don't take often either.

Additional testing is easy. ...Read more

Have you deployed with oif or oef? Many of your symptoms could also be consistent with ptsd. You have an increased startle reflex and you are irritable. Your intermediate memory is poor.
