My Breathlessness

slowly my heavy head has gone. And I was feeling ok. But this morning I felt breathlessness.I feel very heavy in my chest when I breath in and out. Perhaps this is another minor side effect of the treatment.I went with my family to do the shopping. When I tried to lift heavy stuff ,I felt very weak. Ron was right in the first place, that treatment has a rich variety of effects.

In my last visit with the nurse , she said that I can change the time of the injection. If I have the injection in the evening its better so the side effects will be covered while I am sleeping.but I don't know what my best option is?

Hi Ijaz,
Best time for injections is about 2 hours before you would normally go to bed. Take 2 paracetamol just before you go to bed, and hopefully you will sleep through the worst of the 'flu-like' side effects.

Hi Ijaz,

I definitely do my shots in the evening. That way, after taking acetaminophen, I can try and sleep through the worst of the effects. I also take them on the weekends (Friday evening), so that by Monday things are okay for work.

Hi Ijaz
Yes I agree with Martin and Sue, I take mine about 8.30pm and this seems to work well. I had originally taken it at 6.30 but it was too early for me.

Hi Ijaz
I too find having my injection towards the end of the day helps - several hours before going to bed.

sometimes, qigong, or tai chi, or yoga, can help
ease the side effects of heavy western medicine.

i work with stem cell transplant patients, and
others who are in tremendous discomfort. i do
this because i myself have been there. and you
never forget it. and those who have not been
there, usually don't "get it".

i found these practices helpful in keeping my
strength, clearing pain/dizziness/weakenss, etc.
they are studying these things, through NIH,
but the "science" isn't all there yet if you need that.

also, aduka beans are not the same as lentils.
:) they are not flat, and they are red. they
support the kidneys, which is playing a bigger
role in getting rid of toxins/waste now.

if you cannot afford to get qigong lessons, or
find someone nearby, i have put some self-help
instruction on my website that you might find
helpful... especially "the main central".

there are also some research papers.

one of my goals, since i got my health back, is
to devote my life to helping make whatever i have
learned, accessible. the instructions are in
spanish, english, french, thai, indonesian.
i welcome other translations.

best wishes to you.
