I have been off the protocol for just a couple of days and the constant neck pain which came out of nowhere has now abated. I am still more foggy than usual. I'll give it some more days off and see what happens. I am thinking that if the neck pain begins again when I start back up, rhan I at least know that the supplements pokes at some relevant mechanisms for me. At the very beginning of my illness neck pain was a very distinct symptom. Thanks for the tip Rusty. What I am thinking about is to just take a break, and get back on the protocol soon. Thanks for the links, tips and experiences shared marietodd.
