The numbness and muscle soreness can result from the changes in ph affect the potassium levels in muscles (thereby also affecting contraction of the muscle fibers). Often the direct dilation of veins presses on nerves or causes chemical irritation locally which can result in numbness or a burning like feeling. ...Read more

Hence, I would ask you to take your temp, photograph your hair loss and the lump, and I would objectively quantify your memory performance with cognitive testing. Also, several of the symptoms you relate can be caused by the Lortab you take. Please speak with the prescribing physician about it. ...Read more
