As we all do, I keep thinking something's missing. We speak of diurnal cycles of hormones etc but what about a multi-day cycle? Anyone experiencing them? I have kept a half-assed log since onset of AF symptoms in 2013. All I've consistently learned is that I have a 4,5 6 or 7 day "ON" cycle"...followed by a 4,5,6 or 7 day "OFF" cycle. On the "ON" days I have the worst degree of all my usual symptoms-- weakness, weakness, weakness flu aches and pains hands and feet (my only pain) fractured sleep from 4am on tinnitus weepy emotionality skin breakouts bad breath extreme difficulty holding coffee enemas Then the cycle "breaks". Everything goes into remission--except weakness--which is much reduced. Some hand/foot achiness upon waking but this goes away with a shot of Trace Minerals and breakfast. This good cycle lasts 4-7 days. Then back to the "bad" cycle. 3-months into trying to heal AF I developed crippling insomnia, sometimes 3 all-nighters in a row. From baseline, glutamate had become elevated, histamines lowered. Same 4-7 day cycle pertained! 4,5 ,6 7 days of godawful insomnia until I was ready for a nuthouse and then it broke. Slept brilliantly the first night of off cycle, then well, then, good and then 4-7 days of insomnia ratcheted up again. With CEs and magnesium bad insomnia is a thing of the past. But same cycle ON and OFF is apparent but at lower, SLOWLY DIMINISHING level of severity. Should add any methylation supps Bs or D3 and the bad cycle amps up. Is this cycle trying to teach me something? Something I've missed? Do you have anything similar? A series of worse days followed by a series of better days that keeps repeating and repeating? Definitely something more than "random" good and bad days. Biggest question -- COULD THIS BE METAL DETOX? I know we detox daily but does the body do heavy metal lifting in a cycle to minimize stress? Also, can metal detox kick in and literally go on for years once we de-stress and clean up our diets? I am on NO chelation protocols. Again, above symptoms worsen if I do. That goes double for probiotics! Many thanks for reading this.
