Hi folks

I just wanted to do a short post - I am doing much better. The diarrhea is gone completely and my FMS sx have receded quite a bit. Thank you all for the input and help- I really really appreciate the support. I plan to do the Vit C. flush tomorrow if it comes in the mail. Otherwise it will have to wait for several weeks as I am traveling. 

I do have another question about one of my new sx which has emerged over the past week. On waking up in the morning, I feel like I have more energy and am more alert. However, around 1230 or so, I totally get mentally fogged up and start feeling physically fatigued. Once or twice emergen-c has helped, if I have rememberd to take it. Any ideas why I get fogged up all of a sudden and why emergen-c helped.

Hi folks

I need some advice and hope that y'all can help me out. I did my last Flagyl pulse  in Jan and actually did not complete it fully because of diarrhea. I then recently decided to try Tini based on folks here recommending it because it has less of an impact on GI stuff. I took 2 tabs of 500mg Tini on Friday. Saturday morning I woke up feeling like a truck ran me over. I had major die-off sx that weekend and then Monday I ate some bad food and had really bad diarrhea all over again. This is despite taking 2g of Charcoal on Sunday and Monday. I've been feeling quite poorly after that - actually had quite a few of my FMS sx come back on Tues & Wed. Today was a bit better. 

I'm wondering why I had such a strong reaction to such a small amount of Tini?

Between reading the material here on the website and the s/e of the Abx (heart-pounding, significant feelings of anxiety), I started feeling really overwhelmed and confused. I started wondering if I should change the protocol, adopt the pyruvate protocol, and so on. I think I drove myself crazy. Then I got swamped with work and decided I needed to take a break from reading about cpn obsessively and focus on work (gotta pay the bills :-)). I'm sorry I disappeared without responding to people's responses to my previous blog posts. 

trying new things

So I have cut back the Doxi to 100 mg once a day and taken out everything else. I also increased my intake of probiotics and am going to try a probiotic with s. boulardii. Its supposed to be really effective for AAD (I am assuming that is why I have diarrhea). I bought activated charcoal today and am going to try that. I also find that sometime around 830-9 pm my heart starts pounding, I become very anxious, and feel nervous. Its physically really uncomfortable. I am assuming all the sx are porphyria and hope that the charcoal will help with it.
