FMT side effects?
I have some questions for other members here who did FMT.
I did the diy fmt. I did 3 transplants, with a thoroughly screened donor. But I felt very bad: gas, severe fatigue, joint pain, stomach upset, allergies, sinusitis,... and all this in severe form.
What does this mean? Did anybody have similar problems? Does this mean it doesn't work?
So now I wonder if I should try more FMT?
I hope anyone here has had similar side effects and advice.
In Sky Curtis's book she describes side effects that may occur. Her son was cured of crohn's/colitis using FMT, however, it took many months of FMT transfusions for this to occur. In the intro to her book, she states:
"Side effects of infusions can include night sweats, fevers, random bouts of blood or diarrhea after there has been none for weeks, incredibly stinky gas, and various types of poo, ranging from liquid to wormies, to rabbit raisons. Sometimes a person who has been free from pain suddenly experiences a sudden bout of pain. All of these events can convince a person they are not becoming well, when in fact, each one of these symptoms can be a very positive indication that the new bacteria is very busily reproducing and recolonizing an ill person’s intestines. "
Good luck to you.
