Ok guys. So I’m day ten of keto. I’ve been having this darn muscle pain for 3 days now. Per your advice I went and got the stuff for ketoaide last night and had one while I was preparing dinner and another this morning. Before that I was just taking straight nu-salt (1/4 tsp) and a magnesium supplement. I’m drinking lots of water (a gallon a day minimum) . I’m trying to use a bit more salt on my food to get my salt intake up. But it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I haven’t had a decent nights sleep in 3 days now. Which I know aggravates the issue because of the cortisol levels. But the pain keeps me from falling asleep and wakes me several times during the night, so it’s just a never ending cycle.
I keep telling myself that it wont last forever and I just need to suck it up and get through it. But, I’ll be honest, my willpower is fading. It’s like being in a constant state of having a Charlie horse except that it’s in every muscle of my body.
