I had my second infusion yesterday and decided to try something a little different. Prior to going in, I took 5 grams (5 1,000mg capsules) of L-Glutamine. Just wanted everyone to know that I think this really helped. Thus far I've noticed less cold sensitivity, and significantly less jaw pain. Took another 5 grams at bedtime and again this morning.
I know every infusion tends to be different, so maybe this is just a normal fluctuation in side effects but for now, I'm choosing to believe I have some control
and that the L-glutamine helped.
Just wanted to pass along the info. Has anyone else tried this? If so, did you notice any difference?
