    Hi everyone,

    Something happened Friday night that i will not explain here that almost immediately put me into extreme shock and I have been in a constant loop since.

    My heart rate rocketed, cognitive funtion was dramatically reduced, I became very cold and was shaking uncontrollably.

    All I could do was bag breathe and sip on Oj and salt. I have not slept in two days. My head is throbbing not really painful but very uncomfortable and im very confused with major brain fog.

    Please assume my E2 level has spiked causing the further cascade of extreme adrenaline, cortisol, serotonin etc. I am symtomatic of it remaining very high right now.

    Anxiety and panic are through the roof and I am struggling to stay in control. I am struggling to keep any fluid or food down due to extreme nausea and am freezing cold.

    Any help or advice on how to try to get acute shock symptoms back under control would be more than gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ps I am doing OJ, Milk, Gelatin, Salt, Bag breathing almost constantly. Taken high dose aspirin which does seem to help a little. I am considering eating table sugar just to try and get calories as since the incident I can only seem to get 1/4 of my daily requirement at best which isn't helping.

    You have my sympathies, KB. First aid for shock is to add clothes or blankets, lie down and elevate the feet. A wool type hat helps retain heat. A winter rated sleeping bag might be good. I think keeping the torso warm is most important. Hope this helps.

    Interesting. Does anyone take glycine on its own here?

    Thanks Guys, great info I had forgotten!

    Im onto the Gelatin and Bicarb right now. Plenty of Oj and Salt too. Gotta try to keep enough down.

    Will write again when feeling better.

    Hi Kettlebell,

    Sorry to ask you that but are you peeing clear and frequently?

    If so, do you think that switching from milk and OJ to Pepsi (not Coke) and ice cream would be good? Try to minimize your fluide intake until you've got some good yellow color back to your urine (if of course you're peeing clear....)
    I see that you live in the UK....Do you have, by chance, access to the Rene Quiton's hypertonic solution?

    Curious as to why you recommend Pepsi and not Coke?

    Sorry to hear of your situation Kettlebell.

    Pepsi contains more sodium than potassium, coke has more potassium than sodium.....any food with a high potassium/sodium ratio tends to make hyponatremia worse.....Like also drinking too much fluids :2cents

    Thankyou guys,

    Thanks Wilfred, Great info. To be honest I can't remember now. I'm coming out the other side luckily (3 days) and am starting to feel better. Still anxious/panicky but getting there. Estrogen, serotonin and prolactin suck.

    That was one messed up weekend for sure!

    Dang it, kettlebell! Sorry that you're feeling under the weather. :(
    Maybe a series of good ol' hot Epsom salt and baking soda baths would help you.
    You might find yourself completely relaxed and warm. Magnesium and CO2 to the rescue!

    Thanks Rachel,

    Exactly what I have been doing and it definitely helps.

    Out of curiosity how much bicard do you chuck in (And Epsom Salt for that matter)? I have been putting in 2lbs or so.

    KB, I put in a 1 lb box of bicarb and about a cup and a half of Epsom salts.

    Have you noticed any benefit or had any successes with it?
