After reading Stepper's post on 29/03/2013 about Quercetin, I decided to give it a go.as I was having horrendous nightmares and I was waking up screaming.
During the 1st week nothing seemed to be happening but then I went down hill dramatically and am still there, even though I've stopped taking the Quercetin in the 3rd week. I am virtually bed bound as I am too weak to get out of bed without any assistance, I am sleeping for about 18 hours a day, waking intermittently to take tablets, etc. I'm getting at least one migraine attack each week and I am not eating. My stomach rumbles away but I am not hungry. I feel really lousy - you know how you feel when you have real flu - not a heavy cold - but real flu - from the moment I wake up my muscles ache as though I've got DOMS [Delayed onset muscle soreness], my balance is all over the place, my memory is dreadful and I feel freezing cold. When I put the heating on [low] I then can't breathe because of the heat. I just feel that every symptom of my Fibro,CFS and Neuropathy have got worse simultaneously and I don't know what to do about it.
Is it usual to have a plateau where your symptoms are controllable and you feel ok and then be hit with all of your existing symptoms but only worse? I know when my GP and I were trying to get my meds right that we would feel like we'd won the battle only for my tolerance to increase and my meds be either increased or changed. I've been pretty OK for the last 12 months with no drastic changes in symptoms or meds so I don't know what has caused this change, if anything..
Is this usual? Has it happened to anyone else? What do you recommend I do? Should I visit my GP or give it a few more weeks to see if anything changes?
I'm frightened that I'm going to keep on going downhill and won't be able to stop because everything has happened so quickly.
Any advice/help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
