Although I sort of felt this was coming, I did not want to say it--fear of a warning turning out to be a jinx!
What the he11 is wrong with me??????
What I am about to tell you about is what was wrong with me, so it may
not apply, but it sounds exactly the same:
I had colitis. Well, I did not really know
it, directly, but I had septic hip/toxic megacolon from this and the mechanism is quite simple, but it made my life really complex, since I could not walk, and was pinned to the floor like an insect not properly 'treated' by the entomologist, so I was writhing in agony around my knee as a pivot.
When the lymph flows from the hip (VERY big joint), it is not so obvious, but when it reaches the knee (big joint), it becomes obvious and debilitating, and then it can fall to the ankles (small joints) and somehow cause them to hurt, also. This is a waste product that will cause local inflammation and some damage, wherever it ends up.
It was not supposed to flow down to the knee in the first place, but instead it was supposed to be eliminated through the colon. Problem is, there was no room at the inn--when the colon gets that inflamed, it is producing
its own waste lymph, and unable to process any more, but your body does not know that, so keeps sending lymph to it, where it is just dumped into the ducts where gravity takes over.
First thing I did was stop eating, and drank plenty of distilled water.
Then I took Glyco-Thymoline drops in some of the water, but also took this internally not via oral route. I later (after first 3 days) took Atomidine via oral, by drops (5-6 to start, up to 10 after 3 days), but alternated days with the first product. In desperation, I later added sulfasalazine to the 'retention' water (non-oral).
Five fasting days, followed by one vegetable juices day, then a day of eggs, cooked vegetables (non-starchy of course), and one day of raw apples followed by the EVolive oil (about one ounce then)--I was in a BIG HURRY to get over this, since I had to be at a wedding in about a week.
This stuff worked, and I was even able to do a day hike of about six miles (really rough terrain around Lake Tahoe) after the nuptials. I still had sharp pains in my knees, but this lasted for almost a year whenever I exerted them...well, even walking a few hundred yards.
There are physicians willing to drain the knees with vacuum needles, but they backfill with steroids or other stuff, so I did not want to have that done.
FRIED FOODS and starches have cost me too much, so I never eat that stuff anymore, but that episode was caused by 1)experimenting with "natural antibiotics" (instead of the real thing) 2)while eating too much soft cheese (Klebsiella also ferments lactose). I'm a cheese-a-holic!
Of course, I hope you don't have what I had and also that you get over it even faster
than I did,
