Ok freaking outttttttttt. Ok long story short. Had massive menstrual bleeding. Took high dose birth control to stop it but it didnt. i went mad crazy so stopped and went to acupuncture. Damage to brain nutrients was already done and I was low in serotonin which causes fear and irrational thought/anxiety. Cue in 5htp. By coincidence day after I took 5htp I started to experience spine pain from neck downwards. Because I took one dose of 15mg 5htp and 100mg tryptophan next day I am now scared I may have EMS or eosinophilia myalgia. Ive tried epsom bath. Ive tried heating pad nonstop and it barely touches it. It’s like I can’t hold my spine/neck up. I try reasoning with myself. That maybe I used my cellphone too much. Or I talked on phone too much with crisis help line, therefore my neck and shoulders are sore and can no longer holding up my head due to pain. But the one thing that gets me is that the heating doesnt help much. It use to always help. I hope EMS symptoms is so horrible that one can’t mistaken them and that what i have is just a severely inflamed spine from overuse!!! Pleae help as I am close to running to hospital!!!!!! Only other thing I took yesterday, a quarter pill of zinc and quarter pill of B6. But im pretty sure spine pain was before these which is when I took 5htp/tryptophan 2 days ago. Please unless your aware of what EMS eosinophilia is and knowledgeable about it, please try not to scare me. Im already scared enough: That one dose of 5htp helped. tryptophan only made me super groggy next day.
