Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 20, 2006

I get a call from the doctor in the walk in clinic and the test results are in..FINALLY! The doctor has reviewed them and the results? NORMAL

What? I asked if she had all four results and she agreed that all four were now complete. Normal? How is this possible? I ask her to fax the results to my doctor since I am seeing him tomorrow.

No Beriberi. So why does Benfotamine have such an effect on my neurological symptoms?

I’ve checked the dosage to what the iridologist recommended. She divided my vitamins into two higher doses instead of three spread out during the day. And since I’ve been taking these divided doses, for the past two days I’ve had a weird mild chest pain around lunchtime. I haven’t bothered to replenish my niacin so could this be the problem?

I decide to take my night Benfotamine at lunch and the mysterious pain disappears almost instantly. What can I do now? If my Thiamine levels are okay why has the head pinching stopped never to return since I started Benfotamine? I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get an answer.

I’ll mention Riboflavin and Magnesium to my doctor tomorrow and let’s see where that leads… If that fails, I’ll ask for the referral to the Environmental Health Clinic to see Riina Bray.

How is it possible that a person who isn’t deficient in Thiamine need a Thiamine supplement???

My regular doctor’s office calls me back and he can see me tomorrow at 11:00 am.  WOW that’s great. Now I just have to decide what to tell him. Should I just explain about the vitamin deficiencies or go one step further and go into the electromagnetic exposure?

Oh boy…Something to think about…

I also received an email today from the manager of the local health food store regarding Riboflavin Tetrabutyrate. He says he is not aware of any company that sells it and that it is only available by food. The manager is accredited by the Ontario Naturopathic Doctor’s Association with ten years natural health product experience.

I decide to call the lab again for my test results. I give them my information and this time she says she cannot provide me with any information. She explains that the doctor’s office has to call to get any info. So I call the doctor’s office and leave a message to call me.

I call my regular doctor’s office and I leave a message to make an appointment. Maybe he can get me the test results. I always seem to be wasting my time at these walk in clinics. On the way home I pick up some liver for supper. I hate liver but I’ll try anything to solve this ongoing mystery.

A couple hours after dinner I am lying down and yup…I’m still vibrating. It’s almost like I can’t make it stop anymore.

I’ve managed to look up every kind of vitamin/mineral deficiency known to man and I have a new theory. The one symptom I’ve had for years is my chapped lips and there happens to be a link with a Riboflavin Deficiency.

I’ve come across this theory before of course but I’ve been taking B complex now for months with no results. I think I’ve been looking too hard for the answer…

A vibration is a symptom of Riboflavin Deficiency. But I’ve been taking B complex for months without any improvement?

The symptoms of riboflavin deficiency include:

Swelling and fissuring of the lips (cheilosis)

Red, itchy eyes that are sensitive to light

The nervous symptoms of riboflavin deficiency include:

Decreased sensitivity to touch, temperature, and vibration

Riboflavin is required for the processing of dietary fats, carbohydrates, and proteins to convert these nutrients to energy. When riboflavin deficiency is actually detected, it is often associated with low consumption of milk, chronic alcoholism, or chronic diarrhea.

I stopped drinking milk when the Naturopath said it wasn’t good for me and I stopped eating beef when I read about the hormone injections. Two foods that contain riboflavin.

Have I become my own worst enemy trying to improve my diet?

I’ve always had dry itchy eyes and I thought it was from lack of sleep or my allergies. Since I started taking vitamin A, my eyes have improved so much but they still water up and are still tired and itchy. I think it’s a Riboflavin Deficiency. The only problem with that is there is nothing that mentions the weird pinching nerve sensation in my head.

Let’s try an experiment. I look up the foods that have the highest amount of Riboflavin… Calf’s LIVER!
