Hi everyone, it's been almost 6 years since I started on my journey to get well, get healthy, and feel goode. I spent one whole year being 100% devoted to my really strict diet. It really took about 2+ years to feel really good, but since then I've been great and eating well, about 90-95% of the time. However, three years during a trip to the ER for abdominal pain and other symptoms, they did a CT scan and found a tumor. It was removed later that year and one year later I had another CT scan to confirm it hadn't regrown, and the scan showed I was all clean. However, recently, about 17+ days ago, I started having some symptoms (abdominal pain, nausea, dizziness, headache, bloating, gas, high blood pressure, pressure behind my eyes, trouble focusing). It was originally mostly G.I. issues, and because the stomach flu was rampant where I work and in my children's school, I figured I was coming down with the norovirus. But then it went into a second week and got worse. So I went to my doctor and he wants me to get a CT scan to rule out it isn't the tumor regrowing. It's now into the third week and because no virus I know of contains all these symptoms and my tumor never exhibited signs of pain (my original pain was coincidental and most likely heavy metal detox, which is lucky, otherwise I would have never gone to the ER and gotten the scan!), I'm seriously thinking this is heavy metal detox. But I want to be certain I do not have the tumor regrowing so I'm going to get the scan, but how bad is drinking the contrast fluid? Does it contain heavy metals?
I've felt so good for years, no symptoms (from my original candida), but if I spent most of my life 30+ years abusing my body with horrible food and other behaviors, is it possible that nearly 6 years later I am heavy metal detoxing?
Where do I start to fix this? I ordered the bentonite/psyllium/caproyll. I also contacted my ND/MD again. Do I just start taking the DMSA?
