it's not the enteragam

 My tests didn't work; not taking the enteragam and sleeping so soundly was a coincidence. I'm still falling asleep ~2 am, but for the past couple days I've been sleeping until 10:30 am, and I feel much better because of that. Maybe it was my body adjusting to the new higher dosage of thyroid medication? Maybe it was a turn in the weather? Ah well.

shaky

 I took the EnterGam with lunch yesterday. I was able to get to sleep earlier--I fell asleep somewhere between 12:30 am - 1 am. I woke up at 8:30 am, exhausted but unable to sleep. Also very hungry. I ate breakfast, tried to go back to sleep for an hour.

It's 12:30 pm now and I tried to draw, but I'm too shaky. I have an overall "don't feel very good" feeling. I feel a little weak and a little sick. WTH is going on?

insomnia

I had onset insomnia before starting any medication. It's gotten worse since. Finally figured out last night that there's a high probability that the insomnia is due to the Entergam. I forgot to take it Friday & Saturday, and both nights I was in bed and asleep before midnight, and I slept for 9 hours Friday night and 12 hours Saturday night. It felt pretty great.

I took my Enteragam Sunday night. I went to bed before midnight and couldn't fall asleep. I got up after an hour and was up until 2:30 am, like I had been for most nights. I woke up at 10 am. I've noticed lately that I can't seem to sleep more than 7 hours a night, which I found frustrating because I've always been a solid 8-9 hour sleeper.

Another side effect to try to manage. I guess today I'll try to take my EnteraGam with lunch and move taking the probiotics with dinner. We'll see how sleeping goes tonight.

New meds day

 today was my first day on the 30 mg dose of Armour, up from 15 mg. I have had an off and on headache all day, and that could be related. I don't think I had any other major reaction. 

I also took probiotics with lunch.  My ibs is already better. Very pleased.

Found it

 my bouts of ibs seem to be caused by the second dose of the adren-all, not necessarily the acyclovir. I took the adren-all today before lunch and started having intestinal cramps. 

I'm going to skip the second dose for a bit to confirm my theory.

BH4 Assist

Started taking it today with breakfast.

I feel kinda weird and woozy and maybe nauseous right after taking it. we'll see how this goes.

3 mins later the nausea cleared up but I have a tiny headache. I think that's clearing up too? Still feeling a little woozy.

And 2 mins after that, IBS attack.

It is the second day of my period, and I ate breakfast practically at noon, because I slept late. And I took 3 of the mitochondria assist pills for the first time along with the BH4 Assist. So there were a lot of factors for the IBS. I haven't had problems with the mitochondria assist so far, though...?

I'm going to stop taking the BH4 Assist for now, and back down to two Mitochondria Assist until my period is over.
