Feel Like Run Over By Mack Truck

Briefly, a friend with long time Malaise, takes 200mg of Potassium 4-5 times daily and gets some lift from t his, we get so little in foods. I've posted a lot about potassium here I believe. I'm doing the above 4 times daily and TRYING to get potassium from foods, it's tough. RDA for adults is 4700mg daily..

On neuropathy, my best finds are Inosine and Sphingolin as I ended up with neuropathy from a hip replacement 11 yrs ago, bad bad bad outcome.

I sleep 10 hrs nightly and believe I have my sleep routine posted here.

IBS is an issue and I get more backed up as I have gotten older, but historically I've been sluggish...Don't eat foods that clog up. Magnesium in larger doses helps, stool softeners, pain meds mess us up, and if we don't move a lot anymore, that's a huge one.

Amla helps me a lot with sluggish bowels. And if need be, drink more hot/warm water during the day, that's if one is dealing with sluggish bowels.

On allopathic docs, I don't see them They are pretty much worthless on getting to roots of issues.

Hmm, are you saying the "mack truck" feeling is gone? Or it's expected because of your age? Because if the latter, I'd disagree. I've known a lot of elderly people and there's no reason they should all expect to feel that way.
My mother is 80 and has tons of energy bikes and walks for miles every day and does weight training. Don’t give up looking for ways to make yourself feel better. Have you explored MCAS? Maybe try to eating low histamine foods. ? Check out mast cell 360. I feel like a flattened person under a truck when I eat histamines and my MCAS is activated. Only found out about it after ME kicked in.
 

Not dead yet!

Well I agree they are frustrating and often useless. However, neurologists have been helpful to me, and once the playacting of "am I diabetic yet?" is over, there will be another flurry of activity. Unless I manage to avoid diabetes. Unlikely but there's still hope. And where would we be without dentists? Imagine trying to deal with an abscessed tooth on your own.

Your mother is rare, and my huge issue is living now 11 yrs with a mega bunch of damage from hip replacement...and advanced OA issues from the surgery.

I'll look at MCAS...don't know w hat this means...thanks.

MCAS is a condition in which the patient experiences repeated episodes of the symptoms of anaphylaxis – allergic symptoms such as hives, swelling, low blood pressure, difficulty breathing and severe diarrhea. High levels of mast cell mediators are released during those episodes.

I don't have these issues.
