I've been using 6i.u. of growth per day for a couple months now and the sides are really starting to interfere with my daily life. I'd like to start off by saying I have a pretty high tolerance for pain. When I first started using I had a horrible overall feeling of fatigue and drowsiness(very flu-like), which was to be expected. It got to the point where I was sleeping almost all day and had to actually set alarms in order to get all my meals and training in. I also had severe joint and bone pain(yes, my bones actually hurt). After a few weeks these sides went away for the most part(although I still sleep more than I normally would). From the beginning, I was also experiencing adema in my hands and feet, but within the past few weeks the adema has been accompanied by severe numbness(primarily in my left hand). This is not the typical numbness you get when a limb simply falls asleep. It's much more intense and feels like my skin is splitting. It's gotten to the point that the pain actually wakes me up in the middle of the night and won't allow me to go back to sleep. I was wondering if any other members have experienced similar sides and what they did to help manage them? I'm especially interested in what Solo and Dr. Scally have to say on the matter. I would love to know what's physiologically causing it as well as how to treat it. Also, I apologize for the length of this post.
