Please tell me what you can about my wife Amy's condition. She is a 50-year-old female, who was in good physical condition, prior to taking Solgar Flush Niacin approximately 40 mg, however, mixed it with Spring Valley 500 mg Inositol Hexanicotinate. She took Butyrate too. This was sold to us as a health Niacin Flush. She took this Niacin and Inositol Hexanicotinate mix in July and is now diagnosed with Crohn's disease.
Tight feeling in the forehead sometimes, ulcers in the intestines were observed during the colonoscopy a few weeks ago. Blurry vision sometimes. Heart races at times. Dry mouth. She no longer gets sensation in the tummy of flooding warmth at night. Less shaky feeling in limbs too. Diarrhea is gone, but it is now turned to constipation
Foods seem to trigger a pain in the gut most likely where the ulcers are located ( Dairy is not good) . Tight forehead feeling gets worse when this food reaction takes place. After eating she sometimes gets pain, but if she eats low Serotonin ( or right foods) , she might feel no pain.
Have you seen others have this metabolic snap when taking supplements? Any idea what she should do? Or who she should see for treatment? Have seen the Gastro, Neurologist , and our GP. Our doctors don't know much about these supplements causing a metabolic change and causing something like Crohn’s. Appointment with Functional Medicine doctor in a few weeks. Please help us. Thank you for the kind words and recommendations during this stressful time. I am staying attentive to her. We are trying gluten free and casein free diet. We are also trying to rise up and stay positive with the new diet and perhaps some prayer and meditation. This has been tough on my AFIB / heart. Good luck to all of you on your journey to better health. She is in the middle in pic on Halloween a few years ago. Yard Ape
