Hi, Ive been on Cloral Betaine 707mg for a short time now,

Customer Question

Hi, I've been on Cloral Betaine 707mg for a short time now, and I know my body doesnt take to this well. I get really horiffic flactulance. But recently, and today more so i now feel quite poorly. Today i've had really painful stomach ache, been having to urinate really frequently, feel very neausous, and when i move my eyes my head feels fuzzy. My stomach now also looks like im 9 months pregnant and ready to pop. I also have an underlying heart condition which is under investigation at the moment, but have more lately every time i bend down get palpatations. Could this all be linked to the cloral betaine 707mg
