I was putting a few drops of Lugol's
on my skin and it ended up making me extremely sick. Initially it gave me flu like symptoms and I was still going to the gym because I wasn't aware that it was the Iodine
causing it. Felt fine while I was at the gym but afterwards I began to feel the sickest I've ever felt in my life, the best way to describe it would be like I had poison in my bloodstream. I felt extremely nauseous and disoriented almost like I was in a dream, which lasted for a few hours. The texture of my hair changed overnight (turned light brown, very thin, dry and brittle) and I had joint pain, muscle weakness, tingling/burning sensations, slight tremors that lasted for weeks. I went to the doctor to get my thyroid checked and everything came back in range. It has been 9 months since I was first putting Iodine
on my skin and I'm still experiencing symptoms. The initial symptoms of joint pain, muscle weakness, and the tingling/burning sensations went away but my hair is still extremely dry and brittle, my eyebrow hair is falling out, my complexion looks sickly, my cheeks and eyes are sunken, and there's a nonstop ringing in my ears. I've tried a bunch of different supplements to cure myself, right now I am taking fish oil, mega dosing vitamin c, b complex, celtic Sea Salt
, pantothenic acid, NAC, and a few others but they seem to have no effect at all. I was completely fine before I took iodine. This stuff has ruined my life and I wish I never heard of it, the worst part is knowing that I did this to myself. Does anyone have any idea as to what is going on?
