Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 22, 2006

With no luck at the pharmacies or the health food stores my wife suggested that I try the Naturopath. I send her an email to see if she can order it. It is after all, a natural supplement. Here is my email:

I visited my regular doctor yesterday and we suspect that I have a Riboflavin deficiency. My Thiamine blood test came out normal so I suggested that I need Benfotamine (fat soluble B1) to help the neurological effects caused by the B2 deficiency. He is now going to refer me to a Neurologist but I suggested a pharmaceutical supplement called Riboflavin (Tetra) Butyrate for better absorption. I’ve tried several pharmacies and health food stores with no luck. I did manage to find a lab near Montreal called Kabs that have it.

Is it possible for you to order this for me?

One of the things I’ve noticed about these vitamin/mineral deficiencies is that there doesn’t seem to be any consistency. One site says one list of symptoms and another says something else. I’ve come across Riboflavin deficiency before but I discounted it and despite no improvement taking 300 mg a day, it lead me to believe it was something else.
