I feel my symptoms have taken a turn for the worse as well. Some superbug is going around (flu? cold? virus?) with virulent awful cough, fevers, nasty hacking sneezing and that is on top of what is already a weakened immune system.
So I take over the counter cold meds for 1 or 2 days...hadn't had an acetaminophen for months if not years, take one 500mg and aspirin 325mg, feel ok for 2-4 hours then these past couple of days I have pressure behind my eyes, derealization, depersonalization at grocery store.
Lucky to be at parents house where I can sleep extra if I need to (like 12 hours during the day because I work online at night)...
Side note: (trying poor man's paleo sorta) eating 1/2 lb ground beef patty with extra raw garlic onions n veggies, chest was tight for 2 days, inflammation from alpha gal probably. Cleaning up diet now again, garlic, cayenne, lemon juice concoction.
I can't stay away from caffeine because I feel like I need the energy, but at least I'm zero alcohol which helps my immune system recover faster. Well, any high sugar or fructose sets off a cytokine inflammation cascade for sometimes days.
Anyway, it's the same old thing with this disease (diet controls everything, fasting and no carb, paleo/keto seems to reduce symptoms greatly).
I took just 1 grapefruit seed extract plus a resveratrol a few weeks ago and it triggered a blebbing Herx delayed reaction 2-3 days into it, almost like I can feel the cysts opening up and re-infecting again. And the salicylic acid (aspirin) may have opened cysts and i felt raw and spaced out for 2 days.
Sometimes I feel like I need a rubber padded room and 2 year supply of abx to finally mount a proper war against this disease.
I want to self care, recover, and heal but busy toxic life goes on without me while I'm broke and sick. Just want to have a vacation and get better...
Hope is hard to muster without some sort of independent wealth
