Hi guys, Just wanting to share my experience of BCAAs and see if anyone else has experienced something similar. I know they've been very helpful for some people, but I hope sharing my less positive experience might help some people understand the potential downsides I started taking BCAA about a a week and a half ago (i took 3 x 1000mg capsules first day, 2 the second). I noticed immediately that they made me feel sleepy and a lot more foggy than usual, but I thought I'd persist with them for a few days at least. On the second day I felt like i had more muscle energy than usual (generally felt tired still, but had more strength in my muscles, this was really noticable) and my muscles felt better, less pains and cramping - but the BCAAs were still causing the increased fogginess. This made me think if I could get the dose right maybe they'd help me. I had noticed the fogginess and sleepiness increased as I increased the dose - the second capsule was worse than the first and third was worst than the second in terms of side effects. On the third day i cut back to 1 x 1000 mg capsule and kept it at that for like 2 or 3 days. I started to notice increased muscle pain and crampling and a big reduction in energy. I really started to crash, had trouble getting out of bed etc, headaches, blurred vision, very weak feeling, numbness in my arms and face (I often get this when crashing), generally just felt bad and couldn't really do much at all. Then I stopped taking the BCAAs completely about 3 days ago, the symptoms have continued pretty much the same since stopping. I went for a short walk yesterday and came very close to passing out, which is not common for me. The only other thing I've taken which has had a similar effect on me has been d-ribose, although this has been worse, d-ribose caused a lot of muscle pain not so much fogginess and sleepiness though. I don't really know why or how the BCAAs could've caused such a strong reaction in me. Hopefully it won't take too long to recover though Anyone ever had an experience like this on BCAAs?
