Hello. I have someone whose disease I'm trying to identify since she would not tell me. The symptoms are as I observed in the past months:
-sudden pain in the pelvis area I think;
-sudden incapacity to walk normally. She sometimes limps and drags her leg but this lasts about 1 week;
-she said she was diagnosed with this at the age of 17 and that if she doesn't follow the treatment (which induces her severe nausea and dizziness) she can end up later in a coma;
- from what I could gather, the medicine she is supposed to take starts with metro-something and that causes the intense nausea;
- her doctor advised her that if she wants to get pregnant, she has to stop the treatment sometime before that;
-mood swings and anger;
-pain after sex sometimes;

Could you please look into this one and tell me?
Thank you

Thank you for asking
I read your question and i understand your concern. There are hundreds of diseases which start with such presentation and there are plenty of drugs that start with metro so i am afraid i cant help unless i know what is going on.

I hope it helps. Please consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purpose only.
