HELP, I got a bad reaction after taking supplements!!!
I hope there is someone out there who can figure out what is wrong with me. I seem to have a pain in the upper right quadrant of my stomach area (just under the rib cage). It all began 2 weeks ago right after trying some natural supplements (I of course immediately stopped taking the supplements right after I started to feel the pain). Here are the ingredients of the supplements: (note: there is nothing wrong with these supplements, my friend took them as well, and he did not get any bad reaction. The problem is my body's personal reaction to the supplements)
Supplement #1: Each capsule contains the following standardized extracts: Camu Camu (50 % Vitamin C, 268 mg), Milk Thistle (80 % silymarin, 107 mg), Raspberry (40 % ellagic acid, 90 mg), Pau d’Arco or Lapacho (3 % naphtoquinones, 45 mg).
Supplement #2: PROBIOTICS: freindly bactéria complex
1. L. Rhamnosus (L. Acidophilus)
2. L. Rhamnosus (L. Bifidus)
3. S. Faecium
Here is also a brief medical history of myself: I am 28 years old, I recently tested negative for hepatitis A, B, C and HIV, all of my other test results were normal (blood tests, physical exams, ultrasound) however they found that my liver was a little inflated after an x-ray exam. I only drink alcohol occasionally, I had my gall bladder removed 5 months ago (Dec. 7, 2004) and after I recovered, I had NO pain in that area until after taking the supplements 2 weeks ago. The doctors told me that that the pain in that area is NOT a usual allergic reaction, but yet they are not sure what exactly is wrong with me since all of my test results were normal. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong with me? Or can anyone suggest another kind of test that I can take? Thank you kindly.
