Manny Yeah probably the work stress causing more intense waves.

The tongue feels burnt for about the last week.not reflux either or hot stuff.

Gi stuff is mild.still some mild cramping. Doing better though in that regard.being cautious though.all basic foods no late eating has helped.

Any type of stress exacerbates the wd.learning to b more calm about EVERYTHING. lol

 

I know. Even the good stress lol!  Seems we have to be walking in egg shells, so it won't trigger any nasty W/D surprises.

It's a good life lesson. Like you said tread lightly.

We will balance out with the good choices we make from what we've learned here in this mess.

As waves diminish each time I feel in my head i go over apiece of the past either a block that i had or a experience i need to undetstand.

It's almost like as I'm healing I'm going backwards through the experience. Physical and mental

That's why I've stopped eating late night since I know I'd wake up at either 2 or 3 am with the farts or with the reflux/burning sensation in the pit of my stomach. So, I eat mostly in the afternoon, but nothing past 7 pm beside drinking teas to sleep. 

 

Don't be mad yourself. Sadly this is just the process even if it's maddening.

@manny03 I go through the same thing that you just explain I wake up at about 2 or 3 in the morning with those same symptoms. Then I take X which has a bunch of calcium and for some reason causes anxiety for me or more.

Today feels a lot better.

 

Yesterday I had a pretty good afternoon and evening just some mild GI stuff.

 

Today I'm in a window woke up with just a little fatigue.

Besides the fatigue, glad you're having a window. 

 

At the moment, with me besides mild G.I. stuff it's getting there. Enjoying the window.

I was watching a YouTube video and a  doctor that scans the brain made a comment that psychiatrist are the only specialist that don't see images of the organ they're treating.

Notes looking over my calendar I'm on day 6 of a window.

Woke up with a tiny amount of fatigue and Mild GI problems.

Something's changing in my day energy pattern this morning a few times while sitting in the truck I drifted off for a few minutes and I woke up on my own without the alerting system shocking me

Thank @manny03 lots of weird GI stuff nothing too serious. Every 3 or 4 days I microdose low histamine probiotics. The day of and the day after I'm getting a lot of gas and cramping. I'm also getting itching skin so hopefully I'm helping my stomach out a little bit. I have a plan for the next week to skip every other day eating and intermittent fast. I can tell from the reaction of the probiotics that my gut health is not good. It's doing what it's supposed to do though. I'm guessing with a good change of a diet that's consistent I can heal my gut I would estimate in at least 6 months

That's what I'm having with the G.I. symptoms. 

 

Gas

Cramping 

Constipation

 

Plus the weird sensations when food reaches my stomach (though far less now :) )

 

I'm taking probiotics also. Though, with my A/D G.I. issues were their primary side effect so it screwed up my G.I. pretty badly. I hope over time it heals itself. 

 

Though like most have mentioned most of the serotonin is in our gut lol and once it gets unbalanced, oh boy its trouble.

I agree. 

 

In December it was primarily heartburn/upper abdominal issues with me. Now,  those symptoms are still there, now it's calming down and it's morphing to my lower g.i. with mostly constipation or once in a blue moon diarrhea. 

 

Sometimes I think this is bowel cancer. Though, I've always suffered from constipation and or diarrhea (IBS) since 2015. I'd be dead now if it was that lol! Just my mind and gut being in a severe state of fight and flight mode. Though, now add withdrawals. It's a volatile mix.

@manny03the only way to fix this is healing the gut and diet.ive tried to cheat a few times with bad results. 

Whenever my gut gets weird my wd gets worse and weird.

My tremors have decreased, let's say once a week before it occurred daily. Also, the sensation when I eat has decreased (still there, though not as bad let's say I'm 80% back to how I was pre-SSRI Poop-out/Withdrawals :) ). However, the heartburn sensation and off balance and fatigue are somewhat trying to make a comeback.  Though, now my G.I. symptoms are primary on my lower G.I. area or the obliques.

@GonnaBeOkthe brand is walgreens called colon support probiotic 3 strains 

Lactobacillus gasseri

Bifidobacterium bifidum

Bifidobacterium longum 

30 tabs about 12 bucks

Open the gel cap and lightly dust a piece of food and eat it. Keep track of how much dust you put on the food. I would do it once every 3 or 4 days and work up on the dosage do not take the full dosage. You have to start off very slow with probiotics

@Rosetta things are gradually improving and I'm plugging along.Its rough going back into waves.i feel blessed though I just had a 6 day window.

Like Gump said this is like a box of chocolates u don't know what your gonna get. A real cornucopia of surprises.

Yesterday my hand swelled up for some unknown reason then went away later.how bizarre are these symptoms?

 

Hope ya have a good day Rosetta

Oh I know, man.

 

With me, my tears irritate me as if my tears are acidic since they burn my eyes. Never happened before my withdrawals. It's truly weird.

I would use probiotics with caution. A very small amount goes along ways.try your first dose and wait to c how you feel.Die off symptoms can make w/d worse.so go gently
