Week 5

Supper amped for the week ahead.  Focused on what needs to be done.  Next weigh in is NOT going to be a disappointing one for me.

As I mentioned in my previous blog, the weekend was great, and the birthday party was a huge success.  Only problem I did have, was the fact that I had such bad pain in my legs Friday evening.  It was a numbing pain that ran from the top of my legs to the bottom.  Nothing I’ve really experienced before.  Never the less, I tried to ignore it, as I was pooped after making all the sweet goodies for the party and went to bed.

Saturday morning when I woke up, the pain had left the legs and moved to my arms – but only from the elbows down.  When I lifted my arms up, it gave a relief, but as soon as I put my arms down, the numbing pain would come back.  I took a cataflam at 16H00 as the pain was unbearable and I was in tears.  It went away before the party started, but here by 23H00, the pain was back again.  Took another cataflam before I went to bed.  The pain was not there on Sunday, THANK GOODNESS, but my legs and arms are soar to the touch.  The only way I can describe it, is like bruised feeling to the touch.  One of the guests that was at the party, is a GP.  She told me the reason for the pain is because I’m not eating enough, and not getting in enough nutrients.  I cant believe this, as the plan we are on is a medical weight loss plan, and the doctors wont put us on this plan if there were such side effects.

This is the first time I’ve experienced this, and was wondering if any of you may have experienced the same thing?

    I chatted to Dr M about the cramps and spasms (I get them running up my back to the point that I was screaming in agony). She suggested salt or MSM powder. HCG typically causes the muscles in the legs to cramp. Your doc friend is right though. This is a starvation diet so there will still be side effects from the lack of nutrients – which are supposed to be supplemented from the supplements. Sending hugs.

    For the pain, you can increase your salt intake and/or drink MSM powder which you will be able to buy from a branch. Cramps can happen with the HCG diet you are correct this is a medical programme and that is why you have to take in your supplements to ensure proper nutrition. Continue to take your Cataflam. hope you feel better soon.

      Hi Ankia thanks for the response. Mine is not so much cramps but more like a numbing pain. Difficult to discribe. First time Ive ever experienced something like that. Im just so greatful its gone. Thought if could just be influmation in my body. Hopefuly its the last, but if it comes back I have the trusty cataflam. 😀💜
