I've had an increase in nerve pain frequency as of today. Was wondering if anyone had ideas as to why.

Things I've changed recently..
I've upped my curcumin maybe 2 weeks ago, started NAC April 7
last 2 weeks after my infrared sauna, I get ultrasound over my liver for extra detox.
I've been doing candibactin br every other day for about 1.5 weeks for sibo. I'm increasing slowly.
And I've been using a saline nasal spray with xylitol and grapefruit seed extract for about 3 weeks.

I'm Also in the process of getting mold evaluated in the house I'm At. My doc thinks I'm not improving in general bc I haven't addressed mold yet.

My anxiety, due to this particular type of pain, is ridiculous. That it's so often now, I feel really on the verge of losing it. I feel so alone and stuck.

I’ve had steadily increasing nerve pain since January 2018.

I tried all sorts of diets.

I take gabapentin and r lipoid acid and NAC. Nothing seems to help.

Nerve pain can have many causes, if you have small fiber neuropathy, then it’s damage to the small nerve fibers. This is something diabetics get in their feet, it starts as pins and needles and numbness.

To treat it you have to remove whatever caused the damage...could be a toxin (chemo can cause it)...could he Lyme, maybe mold toxins.

Mine isn’t going away so I’m wondering if it has progressed to autoimmune damage. It can be scary and painful.

I've not been tested fir sfn bc I can't find a damn doc that can do it.
But I don't get much numbness... Well none except under 1 toe. And same spot pins but only if pressed.
I still am addressing mold. Have to have the house tested.

I think my small fiber neuropathy was caused by mold. Has there been a lot of rain lately? Are you eating food that has a tendency to be moldy, like peanuts or wheat products?

Oh, I don't know, but it could be a herx.

The only way to know is to wait and see. If you feel much worse, it means worsening of the disease.

If you feel somewhat better despite nerve pain (like a bit more energy, more movable joints/ where nerves were in pain), stuff like that, it means, to my view, a herx.

My herxes almost always came with pain. Specially you mention NAC and ultrasound in liver (the liver specially has MANY pathogens and toxins, so things could be a bit stirred up).

anxiety for me too, could be more infections (mold as you mention, or allergies) or it could be simply the effect of die off (toxins on the move).

Are you on binders?


One thing that helped me recently with anxiety (after eating a bad meal with pork, milk, gluten, sugar, I mean, everything I could not eat), was heat therapies: sauna, foot baths (very hot) and particularly hot bottles on liver, spleen, uterus/ovaries, thyroid and kidneys (adrenals).

I sort of did that mimicking a hyperthermia session (but done at home, with even higher temperatures...). It knocked me down for days, but I felt the anxiety fell to zero (that is why I can feel knocked down and sleep so deep, and wake up feeling myself again)....

Well it's on and off. In terms of worse. And usually what gets worse is the nerve stuff.

What about the heat + castor oil for the liver? I dont think that causes anything in me. Wonder why the Ultras would.

I'm on activated charcoal only right now. 2 at night.
