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 (6 months ago):
Inhaled lithium through spiriva inhaler accidentally
From this study (9 months ago):
I find myself having very impulsive behavior, with quick thinking and less time taken to judge what I am doing or saying. Since on Lexapro much of my depression symptoms have been relieved except during manic episodes. I will have an extreme high of anxiety and unbelievable stress with no way for me to calm down. Then, afterwards immediately I swing down into an extremely deep severe depressed state in which I feel more like suicide is the answer. Withing 15 minutes I am back to normal as the chemicals in my brain have cleared. (I heard this from a doctor that it takes about that much time for the brain to clear a rush of epinephrine and nor epinepherine.) Thankyou for your help.
