    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Unfortunately we are not medical experts and are unable to give medical advice 

    I would speak to your pharmacist or gp for advice 

    Even if others have similar experience everyone is different and may have other factors to be considered

    Hello @Pebblesmaria and thanks for reaching out. I can understand why this is a worry for you, and unfortunately we can't offer medical advice on the forum.

    I would second Jane's advice, and see if you can contact your GP or a medical specialist with any concerns you might have.

    If you're ever feeling very worried about any symptoms you're experiencing, you can also call 111, or visit NHS 111 online
