    Hello I am 24 years old and am currently in step one(CBS+) of fixing my methylation cycle.. my doc tried me on glutamine and seacure for a while to heal my gut- i stopped it 3 or 4 days ago because of excitotoxity systoms. I have since been having a consistently 'heavy' heartbeat, where i feel a little tightness around my heart and can feel the heartbeat without putting my ahnd over it. I am scared, has anyone had these symptoms after stopping supplements that supply glutamates?

    I have been taking GABA for the excitotoxity.

    Anybody help please, as i am waiting to get in to see my doctor.

    Andruu, I am so sorry! I have heard this can happen. Nervous myself because I just started glutamine as well. I wish I knew more to tell you.. I wonder if charcoal and bentonite clay could help you get it out of your system?!

    Hang in there!

    GABA can help and Ativan. I know it's a drug, but it calms my brain down on an as needed basis.

    Thanks. I have charcoal in my protocol.. Right now I am still just coming in and out of myself- meaning im up and down and all around as far as my mental state is concerned.. I suppose i just have to let it run its course before it finds its balance(glutamate/gaba) again.

    Do you have CBS regulation?

    At first the glutamine helped me, but after one month is when i started feeling crappy. So if you have cbs i would be very cautious, however the symptoms wont be subtle. With me, all of a sudden i had the sense like i was beginning to move in the wrong direction again and took me a month(of hell) to figure it out, and now here I am.
