Please help im terrified. I started taking Great Lakes

Customer Question

Please help im terrified. I started taking Great Lakes collagen supplement for 2 months. Just for joint health. Within the last two weeks ive been having major parathesia in my arms legs and genitals. My appetite has gone, ive got diluted pupils. My sweat stinks of ammonia. It contained amino acidslike glycine and glutamate acid. My genitals are completely numb, im terrified. I can’t feel a thing. Since I stopped taking it Ive read glutamate can destroy nerve endings and glycine causing more problems with the nervous system. This is frightening, im showing all symptoms of autonomatic neuropathy. I had a massive heart pulse when i came off it. Please help me I cannot feel anything in my genitals

how old are you?

taking these collagen supplements shouldn't be causing you these effects
