I took two charcoal pills last night because I was so sick to my stomach I woke up. I’m miserable, very irritable and a little frustrated at feeling so badly at a time that I didn’t expect it, and, of course, there’s always a little concern that this might be me getting sick again and NOT me getting die off. One very bad; one very good (but very uncomfortable).
I called my doc and the nurse will probably call me back, but since many of you have been through this, you often seem to understand these symptoms more intimately than my doc, who sometimes over worries, so it often reassures me when any of you give me your two cents. I would sure appreciate it if anybody out there could give me some rational for my oddly timed symptoms so I could just tell myself it is no big deal. Also, what to do for excessive inflammation. The up side is that even though I feel like I have influenza, I can still do 15 jumping jacks without a problem (if I was going into chronic fatigue, I could not do this). Nevertheless, I am miserable in terms of comfort and can’t find anything to give me some relief. My skin itches and I feel like I have Clorox on it, something that had happened to me previous to treatment at one time and they said I was allergic to something in me, not outside of me. I am drinking lots of water and was drinking pure cranberry juice for UTI. Also guess I’ll take Benedryl for itching. Thanks for any wisdom.
