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?
