- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Experience with morphine and xanax
I take MS contin for back pain, and xanax for anxiety. I was in the heart unit, and they decided to give me my morphine through the central line because I was having a lot of pain. The nurse pushed it in really slow, and afterword they asked me if I wanted my xanax, and I took it as well. 1 mg. I don't know how much morphine they gave me, but i began to hallucinate. I thought was dying..I remember trying to talk but the words wouldn't come out. I thought the nurse was asking me if I believed in Christ, and I said yes I love the Lord. At some point I was sure I had died, but I was calm and peaceful..there were several nurses in the room and I thought omg.. they've been keeping the secret of what happens when you die. I told them I was leaving because I wanted to go out in the hall, I was sure my deceased mother was out there looking for me, so I tried to remove my IV to get out of bed. They stopped me and I remember the nurse saying no its not your time. And I woke up the next morning.

From this study (3 days ago):
Difficulty walking - both legs are weak. More weakness in left leg where buttock pain exists. I was diagnosed with ALS in October 2013. I have arthritis and partially degenerated disc in lumbar spine. Have been experiencing the leg jerking, twitching and cramping in both legs since 2012. Weakness started in both legs early 2013 and has progressively gotten worse. Now I am having severe pain in left buttock that has been going on for about a month. I also have pain in neck and right arm due to cervical arthritis (severe) and several bulging discs. My jaw has TMJ, but now is worse. Both arms are starting to weaken too. I have been wondering if my spine problems could be the cause of ALS? Neurologists are not interested in exploring that possibility.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Many autonomic nervous system symptoms with severe body pain and severe fatigue and gastrotestinal disruptions...
