A lot's happened to me since Thanksgiving. Day before Thanksgiving I felt really sick with headache, nausea, and vomiting and started a period - 1st one in 5 months. Doc had told me to get castor oil and rub on my right side. I started the castor oil that day, since I felt so bad. Did it morning and night that day and nightly for 3 more nights. The latter part of Thanksgiving day, I felt better than I had in a while and Black Friday I felt really good. The days following, I had some sick days again. I stopped the castor oil after the 4th night since I was feeling dehydrated and headachy. Also was having a lot of bowel movements. One of the days I was feeling very sick, I looked pale and slightly yellow.
The Wednesday after Thanksgiving, I had some labs done. For the first time, my AST and ALT were elevated out of range. Creatinine was low. The doctor said she didn't think the castor oil would have caused the elevated enzymes. I'm still feeling bad more than good, in spite of the fact my normal symptoms have dissipated. Today, I felt better when I first got up but after moving around and taking glutathione and then EGCG and quercetin, I started feeling toxic. Could feel burning in my scalp. Have had slight queasiness today. Food usually makes me feel better but not today. Slightly headachy and lots of belching today. (Belching tends to accompany my migraines for reasons I don't understand.).
Anyway, has anyone felt worse using castor oil or had elevated liver enzymes from castor oil packs?
I'm using Buhner's herbal protocols to treat Lyme, bartonella, babesia, and now chlamydia pneumonia. No abx here.
P.S. - Docs don't really care about low creatinine, only elevated. However, when I googled it, I found that it can indicate liver problems. Anyone else have low creatinine? Know anything about it?
