    Update: I am doing ok again. Had neck pain and headache for one day ( I think side effect of LDN), but I am back to base and I am doing more everyday. I changed a few things: Got off temazepan for falling sleep. Increased LDN to 3mg. Stopped OI training because I feel OK now that I am in the drug. I started exercising also, I change it everyday between pilates, walking, Will try leg weights...

    Full day again, a 12h work day. I exercised at lunch break, did yoga and contrary to popular believe, I did better than the people doing it for a while, I kept up well and did not find it a chore at all. I stopped when HR went over 115 (My AT) waited for HR to go back down but kept going. Just want to keep under AT because I don't know what to expect yet. I woke up every hour last night, not...

    I have a little more energy but more sleepy at the same time. I have wanted to die from the LDN pain! It was so rough and it took me emotionally to a place I have not been in a bit. But at the same time, I have hope on this drug, Is like even though I am having all these side effects, I noticed I can do much more. Is hard to explain but if I can live and I mean live in the sense of the word...

    So I am up to 20min the twice a day I cheat sometimes. If I have to cook at night there is no way I can do the night session (I count the standing stirring pots as my session) or when I am juicing. NOT RECOMMENDED this is not right, I just don't have all the time to do it all so I am cheating some days. I can definitely see an improvement on my OI symptoms. In the sense that I can stand longer...

    I decided to update by topic, Too much to cover. So I did not last on LDN 3mg. I got so sleepy and so much body pain that it was unsustainable. So I went back to 1.5mg and felt better. Then when stable started 1 pill and one quarter. It was sooo hard to try to keep awake too at work. This new doses put my brain literally numb!! Was good because it took most of the burning and head buzz away...

    New Symptom: as I have angina pain (which is back) I am having kinda the same contraction pain in lungs. Is different and never felt it before, is like if I can't sustain the regular function of the lungs. I also have trachea pain, like somebody is sitting on my throat/upper chest. Breathing is a lot of work. So I broke my normal routine because I have visitors at work, it requires to sit on...

    I started ALC w ALA. I got a headache, like a high BP one. Also felt like pressure like in head, and felt very fluish all day. I forgot that ALA keeps me awake but this time it didn't. I will see how well I can tolerate and I will try to make it.

    So there is hope for a life. I went to animal Kindom, FL, USA. Is a theme park, I rented a scooter (kind of a whole family adjustment) and I did OK from 9:30am - 2pm By the time we left the park I crashed for 3hours, but I was just tired, I didn't feel miserable or had other symptoms. I have been traveling so much and I am still going. Have another work trip planned by the end of the month but...

    I have been kinda of crashed but this one was different. I was not fluish (CFS) or Unable to move paralyzed (CFS) nor head buzz need to lay down or will die way (POTs). It was more like I am in so much pain that if I don't lay my neck down will die way. Is a new one to me, I am trying to figure out if the Pain is because is a side effect of LDN or if it is because I am doing Sooooo much more. I...

There is something about the island that just remit my CFS.:angel: I am doing much of the same except I am doing a...

    I saw OI specialist, He prescribe the regular stuff, Compression socks 20-30mg, Salt (6g/d adjust per patient as needed), Water (1lit?), Raise bed 20cm....:confused: The difference was the training.o_O Theory: Dr told me that the brain is trained to shut off (you will pass out) when the blood flow is low (in 6 seconds or so) But that the brain can work longer. So the purpose of this exercise...

I was traveling and thoguht I wasn't going to make it, took half pill florinef as I felt the crash...
