I am at 15 weeks and keep counting, hoping that any day now I will feel better. I increased m b12 just over 2 weeks ago from 1000mcg to 1250mcg (hoping that these intense headaches and itchy skin would be cut short if i increased the dose). I had the headaches and itchy skin before i started the protocol but it is now worse. In the last day I have decided to go back to the 1000mcg of mb12 as the symtpoms had just got unbearable. Soeone has posted to tell me that the first 3-4 months can be the worse. have others still had bad symtpoms at this stage adn how long does it take to start to emerge, with a glimmer of feeling better. I am hoping i is just a matter of time, but i do have doubts creeping in. SO itchy and the headahces are really bad- even the actviated charcoal seems not to be helping now? Could it be that 2 weeks down the track from the increase in mb12, it is just too much for my body. Any thought- I am so confused about what I might expect for recovery. do i just wait another month or 2- can it really take 5 months to start feeling a bit better rather than worse? Is the reaasoning for feeling worse to do with mobilization of toxins that the body is not eliminating adeuately ? or could this be mercury being chelated? I am sorry to have posted so much recently . I just feel confused and am telling myself to hang in there.
