Hi guys, so last night ( and this morning) I upped my samento dose from 6 drops to 7. I'd been at the 6 drop dose for 2-3 weeks. And been working with the samento for about 3 -4 months total.
Today my anxiety is through the roof, my pain is worse than usual & im having a specific type of intense heart palps that change in speed & intensity and greatly increase with even the slightest movement. I have heart palps other times too, but this is different feeling. Also some increased dizziness / balance stuff if I do get up. And odd jaw feelings & pain.
The samento dose is the only thing I've changed, but I am cycling into my increased anxiety part of my Lyme cycle right now, plus the full moon is coming etc. I was experiencing some increase in anxiety yesterday too- before I upped the dose, but nothing like today.
Since I've not been treating ( or tracking symptoms consistently) for very long, ive not yet had a time when I haven't been gradually ramping up on my samento ( and other supplements & EOs etc) . I'm not sure what to consider my 'baseline' normal , but I do go through these ( or similar) symptoms fairly often. Usually the burbur reduces the increased heart palps from herxing, but today it's not helping at all.
Wondering if it's normal to have this reaction every time you up the samento by even 1 drop? Is this just a regular herx ? Or is it possible that the samento just dosent agree with me? I considered stopping the samento to see how I feel without it, but I feel like it's taken me so long to get up to a measly 7 drops that I don't want to back down or stop if I'm going to have to begin again.
I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts or suggestions...Also experiences with samento.
