Hello all- Yes, I've been dealing with chronic illness for many years... (over 10 under 20 years) Also known as CFS, Fibromyalgia, Lyme, what have you. Anyway, I tried to study as much as I can but I'm not a scientist. I tried many things over the years. I heard some good things about the methylation protocol & decided to try it. At first, I did the new protocol every other day. After about 2 weeks, I upped it to every day & by about the 3rd week I was floored. The symptoms were increased back pain & general pain - mostly in my ribs, shoulders & lower back, malaise, fatigue, insomnia, & a bad migraine like headache. I don't know if there are many doctors in my area (northern NJ - USA) but I have been doctor-less for at least the past 3 years. I feel like this is definitely hitting something & I'd like to explore it further but I don't want to become totally incapacitated or make myself worse. It's kind of scary doing this stuff on my own so I can use any help or suggestions. I would be open to trying a doctor who understands the methylation approach. I just don't know how to find one. I haven't had any recent testing done so, I can't reference that. Is this important at this point since it seems that I have "provoked a response"? I did visit the Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Center about 5 or 6 years ago - so, I do have some ideas of what is happening. They didn't get into methylation back then & I ultimately felt my time & lots of money there was a waste. That's when I sort of took matters into my own hands. It just seems that if I got this big effect from 3 weeks of the new simplified protocol - I must be on to something. How should I proceed? Best wishes to all of you!
