Yes I am on an amino acid program right now, and I take them 3x aday along with vitamin A, C, and flax and borage oil, and a multi-vitamin also all 3x a day. I follow a very strict diet of no sugar, no carbs. I eat only proteins and veggies and I am on the mend, most of my awful pain is gone, and no more chest pain and numbness in arms. Also the awful daily itching is gone. Please contact me if you want more info on this and the doctor who figured this all out. Hope to hear from you.
