seedbeads - May 27

Has anyone else had experience with this?

I've been taking it for a week, and what a difference. The fatigue has significantly reduced, and I'm actually getting tired and staying asleep at night. Everything I've read says to take it for 6 weeks, then stop for a week. I take one 650mg pill with my breakfast and that's it.

It's done nothing for the nerve pain or oh, that thing where it hurts to have anything touching your skin - my arms burn from so much as a blood pressure check. But the difference in the fatigue and sleep is wonderful. I tried melatonin but all it did was give me such vivid nightmares that I was awake at 4 AM.

So.. um.. I forget where I was going. I guess it's not helping much with the brain fog! Anyway, has anyone else tried this on a long-term basis?

Hi Seedbeads! Interesting! Thanks for posting! As for you arms burning, I have that too! I looked at my trigger point charts and found that it is referred pain from some trigger points in my back (there is a website to look these up). It did help, but I need to have my hubby work on them again. Let me know if it works for you!

Hi seedbeads! Yes, I've taken ginseng on and off for years. I now take a mix of ginseng and gotu kola. Yes, it does help with fatigue. Sorry the melatonin didn't work for you.

If you're going thru a bout with brain fog, try googling "viral causes of fibromyalgia" and read some of the interesting info there. I've realized that occasional treatment with antibiotics or antivirals over the years greatly relieved my fatigue and brain fog. It's possible to pick up a mild case of encephalitis (brain inflammation) from a virus - or an insect bite. And if you have something like Epstein Barr - who knows if that causes brain fog?

Hope you feel better soon, and glad you are doing well on the ginseng. I also found that acetyl-L-carnitine helps with energy.
