Is there a way to decrease twitching and tremors caused by BFS? I have tried minerals, vitamins and decreased physical activity but no chance.
On metoprol for tremor makes me tiredcan't excercise or drink coffee energy drinkshave tried reg & prenatal vitamins any suggestions I am loosin mind?
Ask your doc: If metoprolol is making you too tired or sleepy then, you may benefit from a reduction in dose while still maintaining effectiveness of the drug or you may simply need an alternative medication. Coffee (caffeinated) can make tremors worse as can energy drinks. I do not recommend them for anybody since they've been associated with neurological problems such as stroke. Speak to your provider. ...Read more
I have been having internal tremors in full body since one month. My thyroid level was within range but vitamin d level was 17 and vitamin b12 was 275?
Internal tremors?: So you feel shaky inside? In other words, no one can see these tremors? If so, this may be due to anxiety & stress. Low vitamin D is unlikely to be cause but should be supplemented for bone health. Likewise w/lowish vitamin B12 for nerve health. This assumes usual reference range. Of note, you/we should really ask for lab's normal reference range that should have accompanied results for interpreta ...Read more

Haven't heard of it: Pediatricians see many kids with bedwetting and most outgrow it by age 7 or 8 years. A few still have it until age 11-13 years. One's doctor can check things out to make sure there isn't anything unusual going on. Haven't heard of any vitamin deficiencies nor excesses being related to bedwetting nor to nocturia. If there is lots of urine in the night, without bedwetting, the doctor can check also. ...Read more

No: I'm sorry somebody told you this. One of the cults has claimed for decades that enjoying your body causes loss of various nutrients in the semen. This is totally made up to frighten young people. It won't make you bald, stupid, an unfit husband / father, blind, or anything else. Thanks for letting me set the record straight. ...Read more
Will vitamin/mineral deficiency cause eczema-like symptoms? (if yes, what vitamin (s) or mineral (s)?)
Several things: First an inadequate amount of vitamin d in the diet, or the inability to absorb vitamin d and fats (d is fat soluable). Also, inadequate exposure to sunlight, which converts vitamin d to its active form. Being a radiologist and working in a dark room all day, I'm surprised more of my colleagues don't have it! ...Read more
Diet or Antibiotics: The vast majority of our vitamin k is actually produced by symbiotic bacteria in our intestines. So, if one has recently had a bout of heavy antibiotic use (which kills off both "good and "bad" bacteria in the body), then vitamin k deficiency can result. Poor diet can also lead to this deficiency. A deficiency in vit. K most often results in easy bleeding/hemorrhage susceptibility. ...Read more
Ppi's make it difficult for us to absorb B12 as gastric hydrochloric acid is needed to absorb B12 & minerals as well as digest protein. These drugs are dangerous to take for more than a few weeks! They increase risk of osteoporosis & serious infections. See http://bit. Ly/1607tg3 re: B12 & http://bit. Ly/1b1avqs &

I was prescribed 50, 000 iu of vitamin d2 for deficiency. Is this safe? I read something about high doses can cause hardening of the organs and death?
Big dose less effect: Many physicians prefer a daily dose of 5, 000-8, 000 iu of vitamin d3. A once weekly dose of 50, 000 iu is safe, but not as helpful due to poor absorption of a single dose of 50, 000 iu. Once 25 hydroxy vitamin d levels reach 60 - 80, the daily dose (5, 000-8, 000 iu) is usually cut in half and the patient followed to ensure the new dose is able to maintain therapeutic vitamin d levels. ...Read more
Yes. ..: When using nutrients, one has to be careful of not overloading the body. Elevated copper can increase hyperactivity, oxidative stress and stress zinc requirements.

Also, add one supplement at a time to assess effects. ...Read more
