As the title says, my GP refused to give me a referral to a cardiologist for a second opinion because I was told its anxiety. I had an echocardiogram done and the cardiologist report states there is mild regurgitation in 3 valves. The report says that's normal for my age, and the GP agreed with the report. From reading your posts, a b12 deficiency can also create heart problems.(Cardiomyopathy). I also have a family history of heart related problems which I tried to state on at least 3 occasions. (One of my siblings died of MH, and the other has a murmur, one of parents had a heart attack). This dr. is relatively new to practice, so I feel needs a little leeway and enlightenment.
I have also read that hydroxy b12 and methyl b12 can be used simultaneously. I appreciate that advice as I've had to do that. Plus the advice that while I may have a high blood level of b12, not all of it is getting into my body. (I still have dizziness, tremors, muscle weakness) So, I have started again to supplement with the patches.
Someone else's post I read stated that they have found relief with compression stockings (sleeves). I agree, I have to wear them and they do help.
I was on Ranitidine for years, and I have recently stopped taking it. I understand from being on that medication it can create a deficiency. I wish I had known, but I am glad I know now.
Just thanks to everyone here for your knowledge. I want to print this off.
