    hi roxie, true, we do have similar results (except for SAMe and 5-CH3-THF). that was your first test, right? were you on any methylation supplements already?

    i've been on a slightly modified version of rich's protocol: methylb12 injections, folinic acid, l-methylfolate, b-complex, phosphatidylserine. for the first month i used liposomal glutathione but then stopped. i also haven't been taking the 'neurological health formula' or any other multivitamin or multimineral.

    i can't say i'm really feeling better.
    some symptoms seem to have improved, such as body aches, flu-like feelings, executive dysfunction/memory loss, problems concentrating.
    some symptoms have either just appeared or have gotten worse, such as muscle shaking/trembling, reactive hypoglycemia, the 'wired but tired' state, and a weird feeling of fear/dread that appears out of nowhere.
    and episodes of brain fog are happening just as before- they haven't decreased in intensity.

    i've actually had some of the worst days/weeks of my life in the past month, when i developed encephalopathy (different from the usual brain fog). i just went for a brain SPECT scan. i really have no idea what causes the encephalopathy- lyme disease would explain it, but i'm not sure i have it :-/ could also be viral perhaps, or metabolic.

    anyway, it's difficult to attribute these changes to the methylation protocol, because i'm also on antibiotics and plaquenil, and my symptoms could have changed on their own of course...

    it would be a bit scary if my next methylation panel results are perfect and i still have all of my symptoms. but.. it can't hurt to improve methylation either way, i think. and at least i would know that there is something else responsible for the symptoms (e.g. intestinal issues, infections, heavy metals, hormones).

    anyway, maybe i haven't improved at all, but somehow i'm still excited that the methylation results have.. ^^

    sorry for the long response.

    cheers,
    karina

    just another update- i received some new results.

    nagalase: 2.20 (ref. 0.32-0.95)

    brain SPECT scan: moderate decrease in cerebral cortical perfusion, in a heterogeneous pattern.
    ("these findings are nonspecific and may be seen with meningitis/encephalitis, lyme disease or connective tissue disorders such as lupus.")
