Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for March 25, 2006

Took my blood pressure first thing this morning and it was 189/132. Am I using it properly? Why is it so high? One minute it’s high, normal the next…It’s all over the place! I have been sitting at my desk for 30 minutes in a relaxed position with both feet on the floor. I lookup the cardiac symptoms of EMF exposure.

Cardiac: palpitations, arrhythmias, pain or pressure in the chest, low or high blood pressure, slow or fast heart rate, shortness of breath.

Cardiac arrhythmia: A group of conditions in which the muscle contraction of the heart is irregular or is faster or slower than normal.

High blood pressure is a symptom and so is arrhythmias. Luckily, an arrhythmia can be picked up on an ECG so I’ll find out on Wednesday when I follow up with the walk in clinic. I have a bowl of oats and an apple for breakfast and I take two 500 mg tablets of Vitamin C to start the day. I’m starting to wonder why the Vitamin C has such an effect on me. Back to Dr. Google and I come across a site that explains the effects of Vitamin C. What does it do for your body?

Vitamin C is involved in over 300 biological processes in the body.

NERVOUS SYSTEM – Vitamin C plays a role in the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin, a neurotransmitter with many vital functions.

Conversion of tryptophan to serotonin? I have no idea what they are so I google Serotonin.

Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter synthesised in serotonergic neurons in the central nervous system and enterochromaffin cells in the gastrointestinal tract.

Well isn’t that interesting? Serotonin is connected to the normal function of the nervous system and Vitamin C helps create it. Have I made another discovery? Is this why the internal vibration stops when I have an increased level of Vitamin C?

Entry for March 23, 2006

I’m a little concerned about what happened yesterday because I’ve been feeling good for a while now. Why the sudden setback? I’m drinking a lot more bottled water but that should be making me feel better, not worse! The only difference is I’ve started the acupuncture treatment and I’m only taking 1000 mg of Vitamin C instead of 2500 mg.

Around noon I’m starting to feel the internal vibration again. Although I don’t have any other symptoms, I get the feeling this is the start of the same thing that happened yesterday. I’ve known for a while that taking a Vitamin C will stop the vibrations so I take two 500 mg pills before going to lunch and it seemed to make a difference. Then I realize the recent setback maybe because I’ve reduced my vitamin C intake to 1000 mg per day.

I’m still reading Kevin Trudeau’s book and now he’s talking about how all of the food we eat is making us fat. He says over and over how he has nothing to gain from writing this book and how he’s not interested in profiting from the sales however he is constantly telling the reader to join the “Members Only” section of his web site for a monthly fee or sign up for his monthly newsletter…again for a fee.

A part of me thinks he is a scam artist and another part believes him. Today I’m reading the newspaper and I read about how the fourth quarter profits of Biovail have doubled. I skim across the page and read an article about how fluoride is bad for your teeth when for years it was added to the drinking water to prevent tooth decay. This is exactly what he is talking about.
