Avatar m tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with a vitamin d deficiency. My current vitamin d level is 22 nmol/L. My doctor has put me on the following supplement plan: 60,000 IU of Cholecalciferol (D3) once a week 500 mg calcium + 250 IU of D3 daily I felt great after taking the 60,000 IU of Cholecalciferol for the first time. How ever my symptoms (vibrations, dry mouth, palpitations, muscle pain, muscle twitching) seems to reappear after 3-4 days. Them i am forced to take another dosage to feel better.
Avatar m tn As I was in a taxi on my way to the airport, I felt a sudden crushing tightness in my chest. It became difficult to breathe. The tightness increased and finally the whole world went dark for a few seconds, then my legs and scalp felt very cold and tingly. I thought I had a mild heart attack. I boarded the plane and took the two hour flight.
Avatar n tn old female who for the past week has been experiencing difficulty breathing with a tightness in my left upper chest. I struggle to get a deep breath and sometimes have to yawn to do so. If I thought about it enough and panicked, I could hypervetalate trying to catch my breath. The only relief I get is when laying down to sleep or rest. This started out of nowhere.
Avatar f tn I just recently had my Vitamin B12 tested and the result was 209 (low normal) and when I repeated it 3 weeks later is had dropped low still to 187, which they say is still normal(normal ref range 150-668) but I have been having nerve problems since April this year and the neurologist I saw said it wasn't MS after I had a normal MRI of the head and neck and normal nerve conduction studies.
Avatar n tn All typical Lab tests all come out fine. Wondering if these symptoms could be caused by Vitamin B12 deficiency after nitrous oxide use. I do have celiac sprue and may have had a subclinical Vitamin B12 deficiency. MCV, Hgb, Hct all within normal range but never had a B12 test. Before ill and even after ill was taking a Vitamin B complex supplement that included folate and B12, never took mega doses of anything. Always very careful.
Avatar f tn I went to my doctor and he tested me for vitamin D and B12 deficiency. I came back with a Vitamin D deficiency but he said it wasn't bad enough for a shot. I knew I wouldn't have problems with B12 since I was taking a B vitamin complex with iron and vitamin C I got from Sprout's. I took the vitamin D for a month or a month and a half. All my symptoms went away. I got over confident and weaned myself off of it since I was getting enough sunlight and eating more diary.
Avatar m tn I've been doing pretty well the past couple weeks, but today is a different story. My anxiety started up this morning, heart palpitations, chest tightness, short of breath... it *****. I think I need to get a chest xray. None of this was ever an issue until the Deficiency started. Hopefully its JUST anxiety, but its been coming and going for months now, and I need to make sure no damage has been done. Symptoms will come and go.
Avatar f tn Constant neck creaking and muscle tightness in back and neck (don't know if this is related to my other symptoms above, or if totally separate from a repetitive strain injury). I have had my b12 checked and it is 350, I have mild ulcerative colitis/Crohn's since 2007, my red blood count is low (3.89), ferritin (iron) is low/normal range at 41. A year ago my blood cells were large, but this round of blood tests they were not abnormally large just low red blood count.
Avatar f tn I have been dieting and avoiding milk due to stomach issues. Is vitamin deficiency something my regular doctor could test for? I would like to know before I just start taking things recommended on the internet. Any help would be welcome!
Avatar f tn Don't assume that your symptoms are that of Vitamin D deficiency. As your vitamin D levels are now fine, and should you continue to feel unwell, make an appointment to see your doctor for a further evaluation to rule out other possible causes. Hope you start to feel well soon. Best wishes.
626692 tn?1222005037 The most common symptoms may include trembling, dyspnea (shortness of breath), heart palpitations, chest pain (or chest tightness), hot flashes, cold flashes, burning sensations (particularly in the facial or neck area), sweating, nausea, dizziness (or slight vertigo), light-headedness, hyperventilation, paresthesias (tingling sensations), sensations of choking or smothering. Stress is an important causing factor.
Avatar m tn I also found out I was deficient in Vitamin D. Some of the symptoms were chest pain/tightness (felt like i was having a heart attack), difficulty breathing correctly, headaches, dizziness, muscular and bone pains throughout. I was tested with a level of 14. After taking 10,000 iu per day for 6 weeks some of the pains have gone away. I was retested last week and my levels are at 80 which is considered optimal. Now I am worrying that I may have something else bothering me since I am not 100% yet.
Avatar f tn You experience this as muscle cramps and spasms, heart palpitations, and other symptoms on top of the usual symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. Now, when you finally begin to correct a vitamin D deficiency, parathyroid hormone levels begin to decrease in response to the vitamin D because these hormones are balanced together.
Avatar f tn Hello, From your symptoms the chest tightness and burping are due to acid reflux causing gastrointestinal reflux disease. The cause can be due to anxiety and stress related also. Eat small nutritious meals at frequent intervals instead of a heavy single meal. Exercise frequently and take your dinner atleast 2 hrs prior to bedtime. Also raise the head end of the bed by 2 blocks. For now, please take some antacid or OTC medications like omeprazole and ranitidine.
Avatar f tn He describes the pain as an extreme tightness in his chest that radiates into his shoulders, upper arms and neck. It is more tolerable on some days, and so bad on others that he cannot function normally, but it is constantly present and restricts his movement. He says on a scale of 1-10 that the pain varies between a 5 and a 8. He also suffers from extreme fatigue due to the pain, and cannot sleep well at times. He is 49 years old, with no major health problems.
Avatar m tn In 1/08, I started experience the inablity to swallow. I could not eat, drink or swallo. went to ER & had barium swallow - nothing found. Did CT scan & diagnosed a sinus infection - given antibiotics. Tested for Lyme disease - negative. 1 wk later, back in the ER for severe abdominal pain & throat closing feeling. Switched my antibiotics & I was still not able to eat. I swore my throat was closing.
Avatar m tn I've had several CT scans, 2 barium swallow tests, a colonoscopy, several types of blood work including checking for vitamin deficiency and growing cultures, checked for parasites, I've had a Hida Scan done for my gall bladder function, I've had the gastrologist look at my stomach twice (and they only thing they found was a mild case of gastritis - they told me no reflux was found) and I'm going for another test where I swallow a little pill with a camera in it.
Avatar f tn Are we all women having these episodes? I think we are. Perhaps a clue???? I have been experiencing these "episodes" for many years, although now they are more frequent and much more disturbing to me. They start with a heaviness in my arms and then my hands become shaky and unusable. This is all followed by a tightness in my chest and then I experience a "wiped-out" feeling. The doctor could fiind nothing wrong. I, too, have no back, spine or other problems.
Avatar n tn For the past four years, I've experienced a strange rubbing sound/sensation in my lower throat/upper chest area. It occurs only whenever I twist my torso from side to side, such as when exercising, or quickly turning to the side via pivoting at the waist. It feels & sounds like something is causing friction. I cannot pinpoint where it is coming from, but it seems to be my lower throat/upper chest, somewhere around collarbone level. It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus.
Avatar n tn It can be due to nerve compression, peripheral vascular disease, and peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes or vitamin B12 deficiency. Please get yourself evaluated by your physician. Take care!
Avatar m tn Studies have shown a relationship between the B vitamins, including thiamin or vitamin B1, and mood. A deficiency in B vitamins such as folic acid and B12 can trigger depression in some people. You can take a vitamin B supplement or eat foods that are rich in B vitamins to ward off anxiety. These include beef, pork, chicken, leafy greens, legumes, oranges and other citrus fruits, rice, nuts, and eggs. Carbohydrates also increase production of serotonin in the brain.
Avatar f tn Anxiety usually causes tightness in my chest. But recently started having other chest pains and went to the doctor and was sent to a cardiologist. Turned out I do have a heart issue. Which I honestly didn't think I would have since I've always got tightness with anxiety and other random sharp pains and aches and twitches in my chest that I've had for years. Didn't think it was a big deal.

7251241 tn?1389567812 While I did have some of your symptoms with vitamin B12 deficiency (this deficiency is an MS mimic and easily missed due to far too low a reference range), I had every one of your symptoms, bar the thrush of course, due to magnesium deficiency. As Dr Mark Hyman states: "Think of magnesium as the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff -- whether it is a body part or an even a mood -- is a sign of magnesium deficiency.
Avatar f tn Hi, Your symptoms could be due to deficiency of vitamins like Vitamin B 12. Thyroid disorders are also a possibility. I would suggest you to get a clinical evaluation done and take B complex vitamins. Hopefully your symptoms will be resolved soon. Good luck!
Avatar f tn on top of migraines i am having tightness of chest, nausea, shaking, dizziness, tiredness, anxiety, fatigue, the pain is so horrible i can't even focus. i have had this for two weeks straight and its just getting worse is there anyone out there that knows what could be causing it?
Avatar m tn Secondary hyperparathyroidism can be seen with severe vitamin D or severe magnesium deficiency. The body uses magnesium to convert to vitamin D to active vitamin D so if your diet is not high in magnesium this can worsen an existing magnesium deficiency or cause a magnesium deficiency. OCD is a symptom of low serotonin. There are many causes of low serotonin but include deficiencies of magnesium and vitamin D.
