Hi. I was hoping someone could help me with my awfully complex and mysterious reaction to not only Glutathione, but ALL supplements that help me breathe. I was diagnosed 3 years ago with asthma and was on a series of steroid inhales that made me sick with all the side effects. I started going to holistic Drs, and natropaths looking for alternatives. In addition to Glutathione I have tried various herbs, MSM, Colloidal Silver, liquid oxygen (Sodium Chlorite), N-Acetyl Cysteine, etc. etc. All of these supplements have helped my asthma, glutathione being the supplement that helped me the most and cleared up my skin. However, I've gotten terrible side effects from all of the above supplements - heart palpitations, extreme nervousness, profuse sweating, and sharp, RSD - like nerve pain in my feet/hands/legs/arms. Although Glutathiopne helps my breathing tremendously, I get sinus infections/sinusitis every single time I try it and rashes on my hands. Glutathione is the only supplement I have the sinus problem and rashes with. I have gone on/off trying it for 7 months now. I am frustrated and just up in arms over this. I have speculated that maybe my problem is yeast or some bacteria or Lyme disease I had a long time ago but was told was out of my body. It seems I am having an autoimmune response to supplements that rev me up - but I don't know anything for sure. I've been going in circles from doctor to doctor, and no one knows why this is happening to me. If I could just take Glutathione, I would be able to be active physically again. I apologize for this lengthy post. If anyone can help me or has ever heard of reactions like this, please let me know.
Thanks so much!
