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!
