Pseudo-ephedrine and Asthma...
| Carpenterscrown
I am trying to find out if anyone else has had a similar experience with pseudofed and asthma...
When I was in the US Navy, I was given pseudofed to clear up congestion in my ears. But instead of clearing the congestion, it nearly killed me, causing my nasal passages and bronchial tubes to swell shut. I thought I was going to suffocate -- literally!!!

I later found out I had asthma. But I had never had asthma before being prescribed the Pseudofed... ever!!! And it has been getting progressively worse ever since...

Furthermore, before the experience in the US Navy and being given Pseudofed, I was able to take other decongestants for congestion, due to colds or flu. But since then, they too cause allergic reactions: Some decongestants induce bronchial spasms while others cause my nasal passages to swell shut. Thankfully, I have a strong immune system. But if and when I do -- occasionally -- become congested, I now have to rely on my inhalers or go to the hospital for a nebulizer treatment.

tinnitus
| Jerome Landi
My story is simple . I got tinnitus in my right year almost 19 years ago on July 4 1995. A pack of firecrakers was thrown close to my right ear and blew a whole in my eardrum. Initially it was painful loud and horrible. My ear was numb for months the doctor gave antibiotics and my eardrum healed my hearing loss was minimal in my right ear but my Tinnitus has been downright life destroying. Depression, anxiety, fatigue, irritability, irritable bowel you name it.
The only things that seem to alleviate it are diet and excersize . I am 57 now and exhausted, I would have ended it long ago but I have a wonderful 8 year old daughter. I have a decent job but struggle daily to get through it . Has anyone tried THETINNITUS MIRACLE BY THOMAS COLEMAN. Is this another scam? Any one wish to comment.
