From this study (3 days ago):
For about 6 weeks I have had these symptoms. After much internet research
I feel as though I am histamine intolerant. I have been on a low histamine
diet for 4 weeks. I have seen an improvement. I have tried daosin supplement
once..did not help much. Plan on taking 2 capsules next. This is pretty miserable(symptoms,diet and bad constipation issues; taking Fibercon) ALSO, have discovered I am reacting to food dyes and supplements.
From this study (3 days ago):
Dehydration progressively increased as the weeks went by. After being on Lunesta for three months I noticed my cycle starting to change. Came out as dried blood. As months progressed no matter how much water i drank i was always dehydrated and my cycle was starting to push itself back and continue as dried blood if at all. month 9 (last month) i switched off of Lunesta to Ambien and every thing synced back up and am no longer dehydrated. I no longer wake up 5-6 time a night in pain, (mouth was so dry it hurt) and guzzle the three gallons of water i then had to keep by my bed.
