All the bad side effects hit me at once. I realize this stuff works for some people, but I never felt so bad in my life after just 3 days. You name it, it hurt! Could not sit down without pain, yes, that bad. Felt awful all of the time. Diarheah, gas, flatuation, really no energy at all. Tired. Thought I was going to die.
