> I don't think that's crazy at all. Our planet is so toxic now, oceans, marine life, etc. I think you easily could have gotten some bad fish oil with who knows what kind of toxic material/poison/chemicals in it...from the fish used, from the processing, etc.

Thanks for the welcome! =) Yeah I have no idea what exactly the fish oil could've done, but it obviously triggered a cataclysmic reaction in me. This has been extremely long lasting (9 months 28 days), but I definitely don't think it's possible for fish oil to have induced PERMANENT chemical changes in my body. PUFA"s have a half-life of up to 2 years in the body, so I wouldn't be surprised if somehow some part of it is still causing this havoc in my body.
