nora-be side effects
I have been taking Nora_Be 0.35mg tabs for over year to decrease heavy bleeding during pre menopausal symptoms. It has workded, however for the past 10-12 months I have experienced terrible muscle spasms and tight contracted muscles in my legs and hips. At times it is extrememly difficult and painful to walk. I have tried numerous PT. and yoga to alleviate this with minimal success. I have decided to stop taking any oral medication to rule out this as a possible cause. Anyone else experience this as a possible side effect? ## I suggest speaking with your doctor, it could be a complication caused by the medication, but it is also possible that it is caused by something else entirely.
