Hi there. Has anyone taken 5 HTP and experienced on going muscle soreness/fatigue? I only took it for about a week but could not handle the extreme tiredness and headache. I quit taking it about 4-5 days ago and it's like I'm having a huge flare up of my old arthritis. What's going on? What did I trigger? I also seem to have gained a couple pounds and retaining water. I just don't feel right.

I've been primal for over two years and all signs of arthritis went away within two weeks. I do not like this. Please, does anyone have experience. I've already scared myself from webmd talking about EMS, but my symptoms are not that severe.
