Hi, Kerri and Joshua!
First and foremost I know you cannot give specific direction but am hoping you can at least share what you or others have experienced. I hereby absolve you from any liability for such input or any input provided for that matter.
I'm a VERY healthy and athletic 66-yr old with no prior health problems.
I purchased your book a few days ago and have been following your advice avidly for 3 days. Prior to that I took Avelox for 6 days of a 7-day course. Had to quit because of burning, tingling and a "tightness" in my lower legs. My MD said she thinks its parasthesia(sp?) more than tendonitis.
I have no pain but a lot of "spiders" tingling in my lower legs (comes and goes). My Ester-C has calcium in it:
Vitamin C as Ester-C Calcium ascorbate: 750 mg
Calcium as Ester-C Calcium ascorbate 115 mg
Is the Calcium in Ester-C a negative?
I'm told that I should get some C with fat(?). Something about liposome or liposomal ....Can you shed any light?
In addition to magnesium glycinate I'm taking E with Selenium, folic acid, tumeric (caps), B-6 and B-12 (methlylcobalamin) plus a combination of beta sitosterol, slow flush niacin, red rice yeast, and (instead of a statin) and colostrum, nattokinase and vitamin D3.
I'm up to 1,000 mg of Magnesium Glycinate. This morning I was awakened by a the above-mentioned burning and tingling sensation. It was as bad as what I experienced my second night on Avelox. I had hoped for a better result after taking a long epsom salt bath (6 pounds), which was preceded and followed by a transdermal application to the lower legs (full body before and lower legs with serious massage after). Is this morning's pain "normal?" It felt like I was on fire throughout my body and then subsided upon getting up and moving about but the tingling persists.
Have I missed anything?
