How long until I am recovered?
Kerri, I know that everyone is different and no one can know for sure IF I will totally recover. But, I just want to know your educated guess. I fully understand that it is just a guess but I just want to know what you think. I promise I wont hold you to it!!
I know what you said in the book about most of us being unhealthy and predisposed to getting side effects from levaquin. And I agree. I think I was obviously deficient in magnesium. I was prescribed levaquin by a "friend" after zithromax did not work. Turns out my kids had strep and I must have too. You probably know that strep is becoming resistant to zithromax. So, he prescribed me L without seeing me or doing a throat culture. I am not blaming him outwardly for this (though sometimes I admit I am mad about it) but I recognize my fault in this by not going to the doctor as I should have to get a proper diagnosis. My fault.
In sum, I am a 40-year old working mom of 2 small children and unfortunately took my 7th dose (500 mg 1X per day) on April 16th, 2011. I suffered some unbelievable side effects including tendon and joint pain (along with flu-like symptoms and insanity). However, I was lucky enough that I found online your ebook 5 days later on April 21st, raced to the store, downed my first dose of magnesium in the parking lot and slathered on the magnesium oil. Big improvement that SAME day.
I have been doing all of what Part 1 said to do ever since April 22nd (mag 200 mg 4 X per day; vitamin E, C, New Chapter multivitamin - has good amount vitamin D (tho I plan to switch to another multi when done), fish oil, zyflamend, turmericforce, milk thistle,and COQ10). I am 5'5" and weigh 110.
Before this I was an active person; exercising and yoga. What is a reasonable time frame to expect a recovery? My muscles and joints in legs are weak and sometimes tight (at which point, I apply more oil) This is my primary concern. I am trying to be patient but it is hard. Again, many thanks for your great e-book.
