    I decided to update by topic, Too much to cover. So I did not last on LDN 3mg. I got so sleepy and so much body pain that it was unsustainable. So I went back to 1.5mg and felt better. Then when stable started 1 pill and one quarter. It was sooo hard to try to keep awake too at work. This new doses put my brain literally numb!! Was good because it took most of the burning and head buzz...

    So the week ended surprisingly well, Thursday was HARD but that night I up the dose to 2m of LDN and woke up Friday w a lot of energy, so I had a very good weekend, but like when I started I have developed An extraordinary amount of pain. Last night I didn't sleep much, I got a new CPAP mask (which did not work) and the pain was so intense that I would wake up and couldn't go back to sleep....

    New Symptom: as I have angina pain (which is back) I am having kinda the same contraction pain in lungs. Is different and never felt it before, is like if I can't sustain the regular function of the lungs. I also have trachea pain, like somebody is sitting on my throat/upper chest. Breathing is a lot of work. So I broke my normal routine because I have visitors at work, it requires to sit...

    I started ALC w ALA. I got a headache, like a high BP one. Also felt like pressure like in head, and felt very fluish all day. I forgot that ALA keeps me awake but this time it didn't. I will see how well I can tolerate and I will try to make it.

    So there is hope for a life. I went to animal Kindom, FL, USA. Is a theme park, I rented a scooter (kind of a whole family adjustment) and I did OK from 9:30am - 2pm By the time we left the park I crashed for 3hours, but I was just tired, I didn't feel miserable or had other symptoms. I have been traveling so much and I am still going. Have another work trip planned by the end of the month but...

    I have been kinda of crashed but this one was different. I was not fluish (CFS) or Unable to move paralyzed (CFS) nor head buzz need to lay down or will die way (POTs).

Is a new one to me, I am trying to figure out if the Pain is because is a side effect of LDN or if it is because I am doing Sooooo much more....

    I am having a good week. Somehow I gained a point ( I am now at 7 from 1 to 10). The biggest blessing is the brain is not as noisy. OMG it is so good to have the brain a little more calmed.:thumbsup: I am surprised after all the traveling instead of been worse I feel better. There is something about the island that just remit my CFS.:angel: I am doing much of the same except I am doing a...

    I saw OI specialist, He prescribe the regular stuff, Compression socks 20-30mg, Salt (6g/d adjust per patient as needed), Water (1lit?), Raise bed 20cm....:confused: The difference was the training.o_O Theory: Dr told me that the brain is trained to shut off (you will pass out) when the blood flow is low (in 6 seconds or so) But that the brain can work longer. So the purpose of this...

    So here is my summary. She told me to be patient and that I will get better. Patience HA! OI: She asked me to do the florinef in half a pill at a time intead of all at once, I started inmidiately and it makes a big difference, she also told me to do an extra dose when I need to be standing longer. I was traveling and thoguht I wasn't going to make it, took half pill florinef as I felt the...

    So week's summary. I was doing so great but I crashed and burned Tuesday, So I had to miss work. The crashed send me to an emotional tailspin. I don't know how I manage to get so despaired when before I have gotten so much worse, I guess ones patience goes down over time. I got better and was in the office all day wed, and have being progressing slowly. I would say I am even higher than...

    Soo I was doing Ok. Then I crashed yesterday. I am not sure is a CFS crash but I think is POTs, But hey who knows is not like I have a Doctor to go to that can help me, the CFS specialist is 2 plane and months away for appointment, My GP just nods sympathetic and say how frustrating for him not to be able to help me. So nowhere to turn for answers. Maybe I can go and get GP to give me a IV,...

    So today I feel better. I have a day like when I have a cold and CFS goes into remission, weird after the crash. I still have a cold but very mild. I had neck pain but with the lotion (topical aspirin) was ok and manageable (ahh and 2 advils). I got POtsy (dizzy and was soooo close to pass out) at one point but CFS was very under control. Head buzz is there (but not much burning). I just...

    I know is not funny and don't mean to offend anybody but who wakes up with so many symptoms you have to choose what to tackle so you don't destroy the poor organs you have left working properly?!?!!? YOU got a winner! Today my cold / whatever virus/ Allergy, whatever combination kicking my butt and that has aggravated my CFS. I lost my voice. So do I take more mucinex to stop coughing? Is...

    So like I have been sick, I was not thinking about going out for trick or treat. Then as my kid was getting ready she said "mom I wish chronic fatigue doesn't exist" I just wanted to cry right there with the feeling of frustration, I try to hide it but she can tell now when I am sick. I dragged myself out there even if it costs me months to recover from this one, I did one last push. I...
