That's great. I hope the Malic Acid is working for you. I just started taking it myself, I'm up to 3 tablets a day with no side effects. I haven't noticed anything different yet but I still have hope. I am having problems with my left shoulder right now, tendinopathy, I think that might be bringing me down a little. I have been very tired all day and not able to use my right arm without a lot of pain. Maybe I should up the dose to 4 tomorrow . Early to bed tonight and hopefully a better day tomorrow. I hope you continue to have good results.
Thanks Gennie, it is so wonderful that you are feeling great. I will pray for that to keep up. I increased my dose to 4 today, I do feel better than yesterday. My shoulder needed the day of rest. I'm not giving up on the Malic Acid. I really think that the stress of going to the ortho doctor is making me hurt more than usual. I know that it is really going to hurt so I would like to just have this done and over with. Oops, got off subject.
I hope you continue to have good days .
Thanks Sherrine - I do have IBS-D so I will take your advice! I was so anxious to start feeling better, that I thought I would go for it! LOL
Thanks again! I'm hopeful.
I took my last vicodin yesterday and am going to try to not ask for a refill
I'll let you know how I make out.
I did notice that this morning I did not have as much of the RLS feeling in my legs (I'm thinking that it may not be RLS), but still was tired yesterday afternoon - it's only been one day and i'm taking only one today at lunch time. I did have some loose stools last night, but then I'm totally used to that, unfortunately! If that is the worse it gets, then I can handle if this makes me feel better. I'll give a few more days before I post about it again. I'm going to the shore this weekend and normally hate to go without any pain meds, hopefully will feel better by then. Does anyone take the malic acid with pain meds? I really don't like mixing a lot of things, but sometimes you can't help it.
I am due for blood work - actually overdue. I have started taking a very comprehensive supplement that includes calcium/D, antioxidents among other things - but will mention to dr. I know that last time my iron was fine, folic levels were very high but b12 was low. Although, he never did anything about it and I forgot and then tend to self-diagnose. Thanks for all the info! It's comforting to come to a place where everyone can understand what you're going through.
I got mine at Puritan as well and the special is buy one bottle, get 2 free!
you know, the vicodin helps with the back/neck/rib pain but does nothing for the legs. I don't even think my dr remembers why he first prescribed it for me. I feel "energized" from it. I'm waiting for my dr to tell me he will not refill anymore - at that point, I'll see if I can try Tramadol/Ultram - but I think I tried it once and it gave me a headache.
I'm hoping that I get some relief from the malic acid.
I don't think i ever mentioned that I had seen a neuro for 3 years - lesions on brain but never dx'd with MS. I know there is something wrong and I totally relate to all the fibro symptoms.
