Hello! Can anyone help me understand why Zinc Carnosine makes me SO tired? The “I can’t keep my brain/eyes turned on. im getting anxious” type of tired. My mother is also taking this but she does not experience fatigue. My body has gone under the wringer. I’ve been bleeding continuously (lady issues) for 5 years now. With some breaks that last few weeks to two months. When I bleed, It flows like a faucet where I can no longer walk and bleed everywhere. I have boils down there from wearing these makeshift sanitary napkins. Im sure i have not regained my hemoglobin or ferritin from the most recent bleed. I cant go to hospital cause they keep giving me tranexamic acid which is so toxic to me and does nothing or almost poison me with high dose birth control pills (those almost killed me). Right after that high dose birth control pills, I experienced severe hot flashes and my poop came out the colour of pale clay. My body has been ravage by Candida/SIBO since i went through benzo withdrawals 8 years ago. I never healed and then subsequent treatments for this bleeding made gut worse. So i stumbled upon what made my bleeding stop. Apple cider vinegar (anything acidic) and Allimax. Anything I consume that is too alkalizing for my stomach/gut causes me to bleed like a faucet. That tells me I have very very low stomach acids or my liver/gallbladder is not working properly. Without this acid, whatever sinister bacteria I have in my gut cannot be kept in check. I also don’t poop often. Problem with trying to fix this is that dealing malabsorption, my stomach lining is very weak and anything acidic irritates it. Fast forward to yesterday trying zinc carnosine, it made me so fatigued I was on verge of panic attack. However i had the first ever sleep without using melatonin or anything! U cannot imagine the long-term insomnia benzo withdrawals cause. I slept but woke up groggy with a stuffy head. So what is happening? Can i not process the extra zinc? Am I too low in all other vitamins/minerals? Would the loss of all the blood cause zinc to have a profound effect? I cant heal my gut without first healing the lining. Thanks for reading.
