I started my VLCD Monday and loaded Saturday and Sunday. Since I started taking the HGC (166IU sublingual), I've had joint/muscle soreness. I know it's not caused by the VLCD because it started the first day I took the HCG and it's different than fatigue from not eating. I've also had mild pelvic cramping, as if it's about to be my TOM (but it is not). Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? Do they go away? I lost the 3 lbs I gained during loading after my first VLCD, but nothing after VLCD2. It's discouraging to feel awful for 5 days and to still weigh the same as I did before loading. Will the flu like symptoms go away? I'm sure I could put up with it for a few more days, but I don't think I could put up with feeling like I have the flu for 3+ weeks.
