2021-09-20, Monday - still not good, serrapeptase not helping, 4x, then zinc at 18:30, then at 19:00 suddenly pretty good
Painless bulge under tooth. Using tea tree oil & Marigold essence. X-ray shows there's a big inflammation, appt. on Oct 7th... Prolly the reason for feeling so smashed. "Funny", cos I've been saying for years that there's pain, just it never showed up on the x-rays.... And the dentist said all along: You may be right, but nothing can be seen.
2 days foreign feeling next to the tooth that’s been causing most bother, as if food were stuck there - interstitial toothbrush didn’t change it tho. Yesterday evening slight pain while were were on a walk, just needed to relax tho. Today I’ve realized it seems like a bulge, had a look, it is one. Still no pain, whether I press on it or on the tooth… Using tea tree oil & Marigold essence. Dentist soon.

Supps to KEEP UP: PAIN (ACHE; stiffness?) ✅: Serrapeptase: At work 10:40, again 11:20, 3rd at 12:40. Unusual pain in left thigh while cycling: Sfx? Is the serrapeptase not working cos it's got enough to do with the abscess, whilst the higher dose is producing sfx? 16:15 4th dose for the tooth inflammation. Zinc (orotate) 15mg 18:30 seems to be helping a bit. SLEEP: 0) 21:00 3x289mg passiflora, selene, rosewort/Mg carbonate/B1, "400"mg tryptophan; bedtime "600" GABA & 400 tryptophan; +2h GABA "600", 400 glutamine, 1x passiflora, ✅ NOT: 300 theanine leaving this might've been better, need to repeat this. WAKE/FOG: 0) +8h theanine 300 (trying 500) + GABA 400 ✅ (or shd I add GABA?)
For heartburn: Almonds first. (Bentonite, medicinal clay, mumijo?).

8:35 400 GABA + 300 theanine.
Supps TODAY: 4x serrapeptase, 1x zinc.
Supps UP NEXT: Try again without the 2nd theanine dose. Repeat 2x400mg tryptophan (no increase) bedtime & +2h (or -2h, i.e. earlier?) praps one more time, then swap to melatonin, since 2nd time disturbance after 5h of sleep. Keep checking if the GI sfx turn up again, then if it helps at all. More, plus more glutamine? (stiffness?). Try serrapeptase for overdoing-feverishness +WAKE/FOG: 0) ginkgo 1) SAMe 2) Ribose 3) NADH/NAD+ 4) ALC (I have LC: orally or injected?) 5) glycine. +STIFFNESS: +glutamine balanced with GABA at daytime? 🧐 +SLEEP: Keep tryptophan up 🧐, or melatonin, levodopa. NAC?. A) Schüssler B) SUPPS C) MEDS Info:
A Homeopathy: Schüssler 2, 4, & 7 (need 3-6 months sez my acupressurist).
B SUPPS: Amino acids, Enzymes, Minerals, Vitamins
Amino acids: +B6 (as P5P), +Zn, +lithium orotate, more glutamine?, SAMe, glycine
1+2 Balancing GABA & glutamine: 1 Healthfully B6, 2 Perkins: Lithium orotate, Zn, 3 Jockers strange doses!? 4 Levy: vitamin B6, as P-5'-P?
1.1 Healthfully: tyrosine, tryptophan, B6, high complex carb early, low protein late"]
1.2 Zn Cynthia Perkins:: Low (<50mg) carb paleo, high animal protein; (Mg) Zn <40mg, lithium orotate 125-200mg, glycine often excitatory; praps, or not: taurine, vit. B6, SAMe, NAC, theanine"]
NADH/NAD+ B3-coenzyme for energy & post exertional malaise.
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC)?: Drink as liquid… Or ask sleep lab psychiatrist to inject it? ALC’s helping Jemima feel alert, dose: 2x750mg, for no sfx keep under 3000. Needs to be Acetyl for the brain she sez. Question about kinds of pain | Page 2 | Fibromyalgia Forum.
D-Ribose: muscle fatigue, ATP; GI-sfx, so keep under 500mg; little evidence.
Zinc again (bloods are in the middle)? Watch out for the sfx!
Magnesium - glycinate yes or no? malate? “60mg” carbonate in the roseroot?
Increase rose root from 1x200mg to 2 or 3 for serotonin etc. as well as blood pressure (normal now)?
Vitamin B12 injections again?
Vitamin B6 as P5P?
Vitamin C ultra-high dose 7,5g, to be put in 250ml NaCl solution & injected - if I can ever find someone to inject it.
C MEDS repeat?: NAC, levodopa, blood fat meds, blood pressure
NAC sleep -2400mg, better or worse (med)
(N-acetylcysteine) as I wrote here (better liposomal) as glutamate antagonist and to help sleep is mentioned on the last link (CFS/ME, with fibromites there too) suggest 1800 or 2400 mg, whilst more causes - again - diarrhea. The last person on that page also says “I elevated my glutamate / GABA levels with excess taurine” and very importantly “Once elevated Glutamate seems to be slow to rebalance” - got to watch that!
levodopa: repeat 50mg (100mg seemed to increase LBU),
Ezetimibe+atorvastatin if blood fats don’t stay down - smaller dose if at all?
Candesartan if blood pressure doesn’t stay down.
D) RELAX: A bit more Yoga Nidra on youtube.
E) MERIDIANS: real Chinese-trained acupuncture? Pardon Our Interruption
F) DOC Fibro-doc 200km from here?
G) REPEAT? Again in specks/diluted: Melatonin, 10% CBD oil, 5-HTP, ashwagandha.
- Highlights week 6th to 11th (finished).
- Highlights week 12th to 19th.
Fibromyalgia References: Causes, Symptoms, Treatments - & Hunting & Tracking them - #39 by JayCS
Next up: Finishing off the treatment list.
Abbreviations & explanations
Entries start with night meds & sleep, before triggers/symptoms & treatments, because the “night before” is vital. So Fri-day starts with Thursday night, the night before Friday.
Pain "7" = crying (/out) point; my 1 is others 2-3, and due to pacing/treatments
My wife says my 7 is other people’s 12. 1 is probably 2-3. Due to pacing, keeping work down to 25% (12h/wk) and all my treatments (acupressure, GABA) and physio self-treatments I manage to keep getting my pains & Ache down quickly. 3 usually means the Ache, not pains; these I address individually, often automatically and on the fly now, e.g. twist-stretching everything or something specific after getting up.
TIME DATA, e.g. ' = mins, h = hours, 18:10:40', date YYYY-MM-DD
’ = mins = minutes, ‘’ = secs = seconds, h is hours as time length, 3h is 3 hours long, 3:00 is 3am, 15:00 is 3pm. 18:10:40’ means 40 minutes, starting at 18:10, = 10 minutes past 6pm up to 10 to 7pm. The date is the logical digital standard: YYYY-MM-DD.
SLEEP: slp, w, lbu/LBU, RLS, p, i
slp = sleep; reasons for getting up: w = (a)wake, lbu/LBU: lower back unrest (‘RLS’?), p: pee, p2: pain 2 of 7 before peeing, i: ideas.
ACTIVITIES: TT, e.g. "5:1"
TT = table tennis, 5:1 = score, usually showing how well I’m feeling: energy, relaxedness & alertness if the first number is much higher than the second.
SUPPS: supplements (as opposed to herbs & meds). Fx: Effects. Sfx: Side effects.
SELF-TREATMENTS (about everything else...)
The self-treatments listed are only things that I’m spotlighting & rewarding myself for at the mo by counting them; much of what I do at night is self-treatment to get back to sleep or alleviate (1-2h/d), certain regular movements at daytime, like twist-stretching (30’), writing this blog is self-treatment (30’-60’/d), and the further fibro-work is an indirect form.
Self treatments are usually preventative or always have the same positive effect (e.g. cold showering improves Ache and sleep) - at least I do them for that - and I use “” to show what I’m doing to alleviate something and mark it off in the details “/” whether it works well enough for a time or doesn’t’, e.g. Ache cold fast shower “”
fw = fibro-work, meaning reading and writing this blog, the reference base, on 4 fibro-forums and researching fibro-stuff on the web.
AuTr = Autogenic Training (usually to actively get - back - to sleep, so counting it as sleep and AuTr…),
FAT Flash/fast autogenic training: immediate image of dreamy floating in space or liquid from jaw to legs.
cold/FCS = Flash Cold Shower (20’’-60’’) , I count it as 10’ tho. At night with ear plugs & all lights off.
breath-hold/WHM-B-H = Wim Hof Method Breath-Holding,
Neck 1 is stretching top right to bottom left, vice versa & sky/ground, neck “1+” is stretching far further diagonally downwards, neck 2 is pressing my head against my hand “without moving”, left right and front.
loins = loins/groin = stretching the ligaments there.
ex = exercises
HWB = Hot water bottle,
RR = bp = blood pressure (Riva Rocci), plus pulse. Used to be normal, plus sometimes white coat syndrome, went up since fibro, seems to have gone down again enough so I’ve not only stopped lercanidipine, but also candesartan and am checking RR regularly.
“V” for loins = lie on back, legs up and let legs fall to sides;
twist-stretching more for the loins
