    Hey, all! Just curious to get some input from others getting the FFC IV treatments. I got the standard Iv w/ the back/muscle pain added. Needless to say I slept ALL weekend literally. My husband came rushing home from work to check on me.

    Now I've had my second IV on Thursday and again all I can seem to do is sleep and so weak. Anyone else experience similar symptoms.

    I can definitley deal with these inor things as the IV's help my pain/energy temporarily.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Hugs,
    Jen

    That is what happened the first IV, the second one was not as bad and the third even better. They said it was because the IV's could pull the toxins out of your bloodstream and initially make you feel worse, but after you excrete them you feel better.

    Remember to drink lots and lots and lots of water, this really helped me.

    Dani is right. You are herxing from the IV. I di the same thing. It is better now but I still don't feel that great the day of the IV. Hang in there. You are gonna feel worse before you get better but you are on the right track. Don't quit!! Lynn
