Feeling worse on welchol? Shoemaker protocol
I have been sick for 3 years now, and all my symptoms started after a miscarriage. Fast forward to last year and I finally found a doctor I thought could help me. After testing he concluded he thinks mold is my major problem and still isn't certain about lyme.
The first step we took is testing my house. I was living with my parents and their scoring was outrageous. My doctor and I discussed how I really needed to get away from mold before I could really begin healing.
I have finally found alternative housing which included me moving across the country to live with a friend who had a complete remediation done and whose levels of mold in her house are almost non existent.
I figured this would be a great place to start and to heal, and I began taking my welchol after arriving this week. I took welchol instead of csm as I have gallstones and my doctor wanted something a little more mild for my stomach.
Day 1 I took and felt a little odd but it subsided after an hour. I took it again today and felt really odd. I get really bad tight sensations by the temples, I feel like I am wobbling when I walk and like I feel like a drunk person who cant walk straight nor hold balance. About 3 hours after taking I literally felt like I was burning up.
I have taken my temperate since which feels normal, but I literally feel like I am running a fever even though I am not. My friend even says I feel warm, but my temperature is normal.
I am in bed tonight and literally feel super hot in areas, get random stabbing pains, tingling, and all sorts of weird sensations all over. My by far worst symptom from the start has been brain fog and constantly feeling spaced out. I feel it 24/7, and this welchol makes me feel even more toxic. I don't know if this is a good thing or it is working.
Has anyone experienced something similar? I have emailed my doctor but don't want to keep taking something that could be dangerous for me. I don't think it is a side effect because what I am feeling is not a listed side effect of this med.
