Hello Fredd, or anyone else that might have some knowledge and input on the subject.

Recently I was hospitalized for chest pain and rapid heart beat. After extensive testing of my heart and chest, it was ruled out that I had any heart disease. Through blood tests it was confirmed that I have a thyriod disorder. The blood tests done at the hospital came back conflicting...two tests suggested hyperthyrioditis and one suggested hypothyrioditis. I have all of the symptoms of hyper, hair loss, weight loss, rapid heart beat, chest pain, light menstral cycles (if any), muscle soreness everywhere, all the time, fatigue...
I have had an ultra sound of my thyriod and everything looks normal. My Internist is repeating blood tests to, hopefully, get a more accurate result. I am waiting on those results right now.
In the mean time I have been researching on my own. I find your research on B12 deficiency interesting and, maybe I am just reaching for some sort of an answer, but it sounds alot like it might be my problem.
I am a poor eater. I hardly ever eat meat, although I do like it....I am a working Mother with two young children, so finding the time to cook and cook something good and nutritious is difficult.
I also have numbness, on occasion in my fingers...
I thought you could offer your insite on my situation. Where do I get B12? Is it something I need to ask my Dr about and get a prescription?

Thanks for your help and the help of anyone else!

Hi Lt8605, Why don't you come over to the b12 forum and look at the full list of symptoms and talk to folks there. There has been a lot of thyrpoid discussion lately that you may find helpful. Then we can talk about what brands of b12 work well, and what cofactors and so on you might need. It sounds like you coulds use an good all around basic program for starters to be sure of your nutritional status in general. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=150523#post150523
