I hope you are feeling better every day!
It can take 6-8 weeks to feel a change after changing med dose, and some symptoms may take much longer to go away.
That your mental fog is clearing is a good indication.
You may still need a higher dose of med, though.
About the muscle pain, you may need magnesium, too, to balance the calcium. I read we need twice as much magnesium as calcium, backing off both proportionally if the stool becomes loose.
I bumped up a thread with some of our stories, that you may find interesting/helpful.
Do you know your test results? If not, it is wise to get copies for your own records.
If you do, post them here, and we will try to help.
