Re: Research and Drug Trials

This started to piss me off. Going on 10 years now with occurrence just about every year (sometimes twice). Last year, based on this forum recommendation I went ahead and went nuts.

5 years with iritis

Just going through my 5th case of iritis in the past 5 years. I guess I can say I am lucky because my first time the doctor identified the problem right away.
