About 3-4 weeks ago, I started megadosing on Vitamin C (about 10,000 -- 10 pills/day) to an effort to create some acidity in my sinuses. I have various health challenges, including Addison's (adrenals) and recently, Lyme Disease, and thought up'ing my Vit C would help.
About 10 days ago, I started experiencing some lower abdominal bloat & gas -- it feels like trapped gas basically. My BMs are relatively normal, but this bloating/gas is literally driving me nuts. I read this can happen when you overdose on Vitamin C (which made me feel better because it was an easy fix, or so I thought), however, I'm not 100% sure the bloat/gas is due to the Vitamin C as the symptoms didn't start immediately. Also, I took my last dose of Vitamin C on Monday morning, and it's now Thursday, and the bloat/gas remains.
My question is how long after stopping Vitamin C should the gas/bloat go away? Is it normal that its been days without improvement, despite stopping the Vitamin C, or should I look into another cause of my intestinal troubles?
Thanks for the advise.
