{{Quote|indent}}After 3 weeks of 5 NA I had an intense reaction. My depression flared, got really sick, had a huge rash break out on my face, lost my appetite and developed hypersomnia.

{{Quote|indent}}I inoculated about 4 weeks ago with 5 NA. The last ten days have been rough. I've been experiencing cold/flu symptoms for the past ten days that started to clear up and then came back with a vengeance, plus some other symptoms more in line with a flare. Fatigue, deep and persistent coughing, insomnia, post nasal drip, congestion, constant acid reflux, random itching all over my body/skin sensitivity, swelling, worsening of my existing skin problems, trouble regulating my body temperature, neuropathy in hands, and food cravings. I also had a migraine last week for the first time since I started treating my autoimmune disease with plaquenil. I'm going to a clinic tomorrow to ask for prednisone.

{{Quote|indent}}I also took 5 NA and started getting HORRIBLE stomach pains at Day 28. Like my insides were shredding. I am at Day 41 now, still having intense pain, but taking Benadryl (antihistamine in US) has helped a lot...

{{Quote|indent}}I am about 14 weeks post innoculating with 5 NA. I had quite a lot of difficult symptoms from weeks 3-10 post innoculation:, stomach pain, bloating, feeling feverish & really tired. I got through it just, but since I was ill anyway, holding down a job with all that was hard. [https://www.facebook.com/groups/htsupport/permalink/1765694283486519/]{{Quote|/indent}}
