Comment from: UncleMax, 75 or over Male (Patient) Published: June 19

My symptoms of poisoning were 8 weeks of low energy, nausea, and body aches.

Comment from: kumar, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: October 27

My fingertips remain cold, I have no body heat or sweat, entire body is in irritation when exercised, dry lips and fits occur once in a year, I don't feel very hungry, and am always in confusion. But the tests have shown perfect body functioning. It has been like this for 9 years. After taking Ayurvedic medicine I feel a bit better, but not 100 percent healthy. I wonder what the poison could be.

Comment from: Wanda, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: February 27

I am having severe pains in stomach and back, and lumps in my arms, legs and stomach. When I walk my legs begin to jerk so hard I resemble doll on strings with the strings being pulled, and my legs jerk up and down till I fall. My arms do the same, I can't hold anything. My arms move involuntarily quickly and jerk the glass or whatever I am holding, out of my hand. I have severe trembles in hands and body too. This has been getting worse. I wonder what could cause this.
