tremor) and sought medical help. He
became part of what was supposed to be a clinical study of dmps.
His reactions to the dmps were so severe that he never
returned.... interestingly, no one from the clinic ever followed up on
his failure to return. His
story appears on other websites, and I have repeated it here:

across from me and indicated that she "always" had horrible
back pains after each dmps injection.
It was after that observation that I finally came to my senses.

because I was so exhausted and in so much pain."
