In the list of symptoms I have approximate 10 specific and different muscle pains described. They are each connected to a separate combination of nutrients, possibly even with different layers of healing despite being all in the muscles. One of them specifically is what feels like lactic acid burn that went on for 17 years for me. This is of specific interest in Salt Lake since our resident FMS/CFS researchers, Drs Light (both of them). As they work up at the U of U my pain docs follow their work carefully. One of the things that they are involved with is what causes that pain and how to get rid of it. In my discussion with my doc we discussed the role of exercise and lack there of. It appears that the burn sensors proliferate during non use of muscles, the inactivity forced on all of us. I wonder if there is a failure of mitochondria to proliferate when these sensors do proliferate? They sure seem to go together. For me, the pain faded, but that wasn't sufficient for exercise tolerance to return. That took both AdoCbl and LCF to restore the tolerance to exercise to then rebuild the mitochondria and muscles. My experiences was that the burning pain of 17 years duration actually decreased to almost zero in 10 days following the start of MeCbl and the return of some energy. However, it took AdoCbl and LCF to restore exercise tolerance, mitochondria proliferation and muscle growth. He was interested in how I went from essentially housebound and able to do a few steps up the stairs at a time to being able to do 2000-4000 feet of vertical up AND down each day with 3 to 5 miles or more of walking distance, at least during the summer. The doc I started with at the pain clinic had retired from the clinic so I was reassigned and he hadn't watched from the beginning. I had 99% of my total healing while still having paradoxical folate insufficiency symptoms. These slowly squeezed down to a very few "signal" symptoms. While keeping these minimized, at least other layers of healing can be going on. As usual, this doc watches and agrees that I am doing well and that treatment should continue. I sure don't look like or have affect like the rest of the patients there. The thing about the pain clinic which they tell us up front is that they are not there for finding a cure to our problems. They are there to manage the pain that in itself has become the problem, regardless of underlying problems. With most of my nerves functioning adequately to have nerves to muscles, most of my muscles have come back except for those having nerves that were damaged by the car wreck, showing the asymmetries quite strongly.
