The symptoms typically get worse before they get better and everything orka has suggested is great for dealing with die-off. I had die-off pretty rough for the first 2-6 weeks and then it slowly reduced to almost nothing after 4 months or so on my protocol. After that time period, I had brain fog occasionally, but it mostly went away. Now I don’t get it at all really.
Hope this helps! You will feel much better in time.
Did you have brain fog before you started the protocol? I have a very vivid memory of it descending when I was 15 when I first got ill with M.E.
I remember feeling hopeless in the knowledge that I would soon forget I ever used to be able to function properly, and feeling the thoughts just slip away from me. It obviously got much better as I got better from the M.E, but I’m not sure it ever fully lifted. I had forgotten that memory until now.
I hope I do feel better eventually. I’ve been fighting this invisible illness for so long now, chasing from one fad cure to the next, that I have no idea what it would be like to be normal again.
