I don't know if this would interest you but you were correct. My naturopathic physician ruled out Thyroid and hormones. It is definitely adrenal fatigue. Apparently my body is in a state of 'fight or flight' so we are attempting to address that with Chinese herbal remedies. We also learned that I have a rare allergy, Rutin allergy....ugh. Anyway, I started fasting again to get some relief and I am in the 6th day of fast. I am experiencing pain....no....more like a constant ache running down both my arms. The ache keeps me up at night. I try to keep heat paks on each limb. During my 21 day fast this very same sensation occured in both my legs and I lost 3 nights of sleep and eventually went to hospital where I succumbed....no...more like begged to have an antiflammatory administered thru IV and gave in to a steroid injection. I was desperate for sleep and the relief was immediate and the rest of my fast was a breeze. However, I would like to avoid all the above. Any idea what you think might be going on? I value your opinion and insight greatly.
