Certainly the million dollar question! It is surprising how often I get asked the question, or hear theories, on why I’m in an exacerbation. I really wish I knew, or someone could tell me, what causes my exacerbations so I could take measures to prevent them.
I do know that it wasn’t stress, unlike the first two exacerbations where the stress was certainly “coincidentally” was quite bad. I would like to blame some coworkers “lack of technical prowess” to be neuro toxic; but I certainly don’t have enough data for that yet! 😉 I was sick a couple of weeks ago, so it is certainly possible that it was viral, and it got the immune system up in a tizzy. Physical exertion does not seem to play a role in any of my exacerbations, though getting warm certainly doesn’t make them better. I can probably safely say that it is not a lack of glyconutrients that is causing the exacerbations!!! 😉
