Are there any other patients out there, willing to share their personal observation of Symbicort treatment? Community Discussion: "I experienced lower back pain, pain shooting up my right calf, swollen aching ankles and severe muscle spasms. My entire body ached, dizziness, lightheaded, depression, anxiety, hair loss (I am currently wearing a wig), excessive flem production, severe headaches, pounding in my ears, slurred speech at times, heart palpitations, sluggishness, constipation, frequent urination, bleeding gums, aching gums, chills, loss of voice, muffled hearing, confusion, increased hunger, stiffness, tremors. I woke us last week and my left eye socket was extremely sore and remained that way for the rest of the day. It was such an oddity that I googled and found MANY people have experienced the same symptoms on Symbicort. I have taken 80/4.5 for a year and just upped my dose to 160/ 4.5 3 weeks ago. I'm glad I did because all of my symptoms became more severe causing me to research Symbicort side effects! Over the past year I've been to an eye surgeon, an oral surgeon and was on crutches for awhile after I sprained my right ankle when i just fell over...the pain was so severe. I NEVER get sick and ended up using 2 sick days from my job. (I have weeks of sick time banked!) None of the doctors nor I knew what was causing my "illnesses". I've been off of Symbicort just over a week now and I feel great! The aches and pain have been greatly reduced and now I'm healing from Symbicort. I found a book at the health food store called You're Not Sick You're Thirsty. I have had asthma all of my life. I'm going to try natural methods now."
