 3  Arthritis in both knees I had terrible stomach pain, constipation. Also in the evening I would get terrible night cramps in my calves and feet. I was very nervous about taking Voltarin in the beginning because it almost caused my father to bleed to death. It caused him to have a bleeding ulcer in his small intestine and he lost a lot of blood. I was assured that it had been improved and the issues such as those had been worked out. Although it helped me the side effects were just too much. F 57 3 months

 1  De Quervain's stenosing tenosynovit I have tendonitis in my left thump which is painful. I am taking one Voltaren 75 mg sometimes everyday sometimes every two days. It helped ease the pain. I started noticing symptoms of tiredness, loss of appetite a month after use, but I did not pay attention. As the symptoms became worse I realized that something is wrong with me. The only thing I was doing different was taking Voltaren. I read the comments in this site and I realized that all this sick feeling is due to Voltaren. I am stopping taking it and hope to take care of this problem either through other medicine or surgery. F 72 3 months
