The Sound of Silence

Sorry I haven't been posting lately. As I have mentioned in some previous posts I am dealing with some health issues. All my tests so far have come back good with the exception of low vitamin d and slightly anemic. But I still don't feel normal. Joint and muscle pain ebbs and flows, no stamina or energy, hard to get through 30 minutes of a walk without feeling like I have run a marathon. This just isn't normal for me. Well I decided to go to the local health store and talk with the owner about something to help me. He was very informative and seemed to know his stuff. I left the store with New Chapter's zyflamend softgels and One "n" only Superior Tonic Multiple Vitamin. The zyflamend is a bunch of high potent herbs that create a good inflammation response in your body and helps with joint, muscle, tend, or nerve inflammation problems. The vitamin is super potent and has alot of B vitamins as well as some herbs to help with energy. The first day I took the zyflamend I woke up in the middle of the night with a full blown panic attack and couldn't go back to sleep. In the past I did suffer from anxiety and was on medication for about 3-4 years right after I had Grace. I know what an attack feels like and thought maybe after three months of not feeling right it was starting to get to me. So the next day at lunch I took both pills and again had trouble sleeping and was up much the not with anxious feelings. I read further about this herbal supplement and discovered the anxious feelings were probably coming from it. I took it one more night which was last night and sleep more than the first two nights but did wake up twice with feelings of anxiety (like I was scared to fall back asleep). Hubby also took one of the pills last night to see if he had some of the same feelings. He did feel quite a bit of energy and didn't need to go to sleep at his normal time. So for know I have decided to stop taking it even with it being very expensive. I just can not go around feeling tired as well as amped up on drugs all the time. My nerves would suffer to much. I am going to try to continue you the vitamin supplement and hope it will help with my problems of lack of energy. So sorry for no posts, I could hardly form some coherent sentences over the past few days. Prayer would be greatly appreciated for calm and healing.

I am sorry you are not feeling well. I hope you get back to some sort of normality soon. Take care of yourself x

We will pray for healing for you. Have you tried elminiating anything out of your diet - sugar, gluten, etc.? It is so frustrating when they can't tell you what is wrong, I have hip and side pain with no cause and the doctor tells me about 50% of the time they can't find a cause.
