I took two L-Tryptophan tablets 5 months ago, which have left me severely debilitated, suffering constant anxiety, panic attacks and cognitive problems, also have joint and muscle pain, skin problems and general nervous system issues. My nervous system seems to be overactive, an over stimulated, souns can be painful to hear, lights are too bright, reading has become an issue and I can no longer watch TV. I have raised eosinophils and monocytes. This all seems to point to EMS (eosinophilia myalgia synrome) which is a rare, although very dangerous syndrome. It seems prednisone is often prescribed for this condition, are there any safer alternatives which could help with the above difficult to live with symptoms?
