  1. Good advice. And what may work for one, may not work for another. We need to know what the properties are and what they are for. And then pay really close attention to what your body tells you with something.
  2. I have liquid and put a dropper full in water and drink. See what your bottle suggest. I'm like you....don't want to be on something all the time. Or have long lasting side affects.
  3. I take it when I have that really bad hyper feeling. I don't take them together, usually. But have. The lemon balm seems to help sleep. And black strap molasses seems to help too.
  4. Note the comments. As we are receiving more feedback, we are adding additional information. https://www.healthrising.org/blog/2020/06/05/fight-flight-neuroinflammation-fibromyalgia-chronic-fatigue-syndrome/
  5. @Pistol I vasodilate too. One cool thing that Tramadol does is has a bit of a calcium channel blocking affect. As does GastroCrom, which is a mast cell stabilizer. A regular calcium channel blocker was wayyyyyy too much for me. I'm super sensitive and have to go extremely low on everything. But as mentioned, sometimes what we think of to be most uncomfortable "symptoms", may in fact be the lessor of the two evils. It may be the body trying to right something that is worse and is a compensation. Stopping a compensation may NOT be the right or wisest choice. But modifying and not compl
  6. @ChuskeDejurgen just added a comment on the blog about dopamine and fructose you may find interesting. You asked about fruit.
  7. With us recently connecting that many of us may have issues with acetaldehyde breakdown and fructose intolerance...... I'm not eating fruit or sugar and mostly grain free too. I try to be as organic as I can. I was a vegan for 3 1/2 years, but had to go back on meat as I got so much weaker. It did do what we hoped though and reverses chronic kidney disease. So I'm still careful with my kidneys. I eat vegetables, but very few nightshades and very few lectins. Both give me more pain and are inflammatory. I eat organic meats and fish if it is flash frozen and handled well. Histam
  8. Some sites will tell you they are and others say the white interfere with what breaks down histamine. For me, eggs trigger me. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322543#diet Some do okay on sweet potatoes.
  9. Yeah, is complicated. Nettle tea an hour before bed.... good idea, what I do. Expect a bit of a histamine surge and then it eases off and then sleep.
  10. Also ginger is a warming herb and can increase internal heat. And also is a stimulant. https://www.verywellfit.com/ginger-tea-recipe-88180 Although ginger is said to aid digestion, drinking too much of the tea can trigger an upset stomach and loose stools in some people. Avoid drinking ginger tea before bed or at night if you have insomnia or find that it keeps you up.
  11. MAST CELL threads https://www.healthrising.org/forums/threads/mast-cell-histamine-immunotherapy-with-histamine.6233/ https://www.healthrising.org/forums/threads/potential-linking-fm-mast-cells-sleep-deprivation-food-intolerance-exercise-intolerance-and-me.6217/
  12. Eggs are a high histamine trigger. And apples for dejurgen and I, will trigger both of us. It's the fructose. Chamomile will trigger some, in the ragweed family. Tomatoes are absolute worst. Potatoes make me hurt terribly. So possibly! The testing for mast cell is hard to get correctly. It has to be done within a couple of hours of a flare and when in one, we don't feel like getting to a lab to have them. Many docs now are treating symptoms. And with POTS, it's more common than people realize. They will think they are HyperPOTS and its mast cell related. Try to re
  13. I'm still thinking mast cell surges. You can't sleep with those and they feel like what you describe. Including the hot flashes. What did you eat or drink? Something that could cause a histamine spike? Even some medicines can do it. They do cause that adrenal feeling and anxiety.
  14. The only thing I found that worked for me, medicine wise, was Tramadol. Very low dose and cycle on and off as to not get addicted or it stop working. I found it worked better with a Bentyl, which was a muscle relaxer and very mild. Tramadol is considered a narcotic in the States. But 1/4 to 1/2 of a 50 mg. Was enough to take the edge off. It works on all the neurotransmitters including glutamate which is the excitatory part and connected to the sympathetic nervous system. It also works on the opiate receptors which seem to be a better receptor (with me) to tweak when it comes to flight
  15. @Pistol I too have a lot of pain. Part is due to FMS and EDS. But still not all can be explained by those two labels. Dejurgen and I have more to share and will be slowly sharing on the blogs. We hope to get it all in one place soon. There is more you can do! And less destructive too. You may look up both of our comments, as we are already sharing some in other threads, on the forum part of Healthrising. We will share there, as we are not monitored and can put our thoughts freely there and our hypothesis. Issie
