If B12 Improves My Chest/left Arm/left Shoulder Blade Pain, Is It Heart Related Or Brain Related?
Posted 17 November 2008 - 11:02 AM
For about 5 days now I've been having really intense chest pain, left arm pain, left shoulder blade pain and occasional pain on the left side of my jaw. Of course, these are symptoms of a heart attack so I went to the ER the second night of this excruciating pain...but my chest xray and EKG were normal.
Along with this I've also had extreme nausea and weakness, with occasional dizziness. Basically, I'm couch-ridden. Everything gets worse when I move around. So I'm just chillin
But anyways, my doctor took me off of all my supplements when this happened, but now im slowly adding things back in . I've noticed though that after taking my sublingual B12, my pain and nausea get a little better for a little while.
I'm wondering, does that indicate that the problem is with the heart, or when the brain (neuropathy?)? I know you all aren't doctors, but I thought I'd ask because I know a lot of you guys have experience with B12 issues and deficiencies.
Thanks everyone, I appreciate your input! When it's the heart that may be causing symptoms, things can be a little freaky!
Hope you are all well!

My MD told me a few months ago that he thought the dizziness had something to do with a dumping syndrome where you stomach doesn't empty right causing too much blood to go to the stomach to aid digestion. I'm not sure if its right but my dizziness does get worse when I eat a lot. I've been having TMJ treatment from chiropractor and special dentist for years and its helped with the jaw and neck pain but not for the shoulder, chest and side. I did recently get diagnosed with a couple of ulcers (they were bleeding a little and hurting a lot!). I can tell now that the chest, back, shoulder and side pain definitely get worse when the ulcer hurts so I've been thinking they may be related. My GI doc thinks I've had the ulcers for a long time so maybe they were causing the pain all along.
I just don't know what connects them all. I'm starting to believe its bacterial overgrowth or candida. I have been keeping a small food log and I can tell that the pain, dizziness and palpitations get a lot worse after I eat cheese but I just can't stop eating cheese. I have been diagnosed with a milk allergy so maybe its just the cheese alone, but I don't think so. My dairy cravings get worse every day so I'm thinking that the bacteria inside me is living off dairy. I plan on cutting out dairy to see if that helps.
I also looked up B12 in my vitamin book and it helps with nerve pain. YOu will be more prone to pain if you are deficient which most people with any food allergies or intolerance are. Shortage of B12 also causes fatigue.

I was taking 1500 mcg of B-12's and changed my daily vitamins brand last week and my pain has gotten worse. Just checked the label- only 80 mcg of B-12- eek! Headed now to get more B vitamins so that the pain will subside while I'm healing. yay!
