Not taking anything mucolytic that I’m aware of, I’m on no prescription drugs right now at all.
Still feeling a bit sick but my fever is gone so that’s good.
I think I’ve figured a few things out about the COMT after doing some research. It sounds like I have a lot of extra dopamine production from what I’ve read. It also looks like COMT is supposed to clean up Epinephrine(adrenaline). Since I have 2 COMT mutations both +/+ I have a very limited ability to do that. So from what I understand I am pretty much always hyped up on adrenaline, which explains my inability to sleep well, anxiety, jitteryness, muscle spasms, restless legs, stress, etc. SO I think by kick starting my methylation again I am making even more dopamine and Epinephrine and still unable to break down it down properly. So it just keeps accumulating and not being broken down properly.

I think this could also explain some immune system and digestive system trouble I have as well. Having all this excess adrenaline puts me in a constant fight/flight mode. When that mode is triggered your body cuts blood and energy flow to anything not vital and puts it where it thinks you need it (like heart,muscles,etc). So maybe that is constantly going on and I’m not getting enough blood and energy to my digestive system, and that’s why its so sluggish.

I also read that I need to avoid stress as well as I can until I get things figured out, because it takes me so long to break down adrenaline a stressful situation will take me longer to recover from than average.

So what I think I need to do is figure out a way to break down Epinephrine properly, I’m just not sure how to go about that now.
