nerve dont read into any of the jazz that dr. oz likes to spin on his show, about glass feelings.

Have you taken klonopin before? I took klonopin and for awhile i was having problems with loud noises. That was the link. also i took mullein before, and that seemed to cause a fluctuation in noise?- is that the problem?

Also, at one point i was taking ssri antidepressant, and that caused weird symptoms like the glass thing you described.

also betaine, i cant even stomach the stuff. maybe my pill size is too big. but it feels like a lump when i use it, is it more helpful to use it more often?

How much exercise do you get and on a scale of 1 to 10 and how important do you think this is? Nothing can happen to a "parked car." Start slowly knowing if you "hurt yourself exercising" you will surely quit. Don't give yourself that excuse. Do a easy routine for a week and then bump it up. Even if you live in an apartment with 20 feet of snow out side, you can still exercise in your room. Lay on the floor and lift your heels three inches for 30 seconds. Will do wonders for your back. Then cross your right knee over your left leg and the opposite. Feel all your vertebra crack and pop into place. Once you get your back in shape do squats .. three at first and keep bumping them after a week. Work you self up to 30. Touch your toes. Bend at the waist and point to the four quadrants. Hold your arms out level and rotate the hands in a one foot circle for a minute .. increase it by increments. Do short walks then short walks with half at a fast speed. Bump it up to longer walks. Lift light weights etc.

I keep having the same problems. I figured out I was low in B5 (pantothenic acid), because I am Calcium Deficient. B5 also requires biotin. B5 is also a common deficiency. Also, Folic Acid can be masked by B12 and vice versa, from what I've heard. Both can cause anemia, which would be indicated on a CBC blood test. Like someone else said, you definitely don't want to start supplementing only one B-vitamin at a time, unless a health professional advises it. You should do the whole complex.

When I first tried to fix deficiencies after a severe alcohol binge (which I should have been dead from), I ended up fixing myself pretty well, then unfixing myself, because I was supplement 1 thing at a time to figure out my deficiencies. That becomes a problem, because most nutrients have antagonist nutrients, pushing each other out, when taken over a long period of time. I took Magnesium for a long time without calcium, and guess what happened to my calcium? Yep, not much left. **

This is just the opposite of everything I've seen. Typically...

... though I have some reservations, partly because, as stated above, it has not been thoroughly studied.

Do you happen to have any citations/links/sources for (stating) pantothenic acid deficiency commonness?

Thanks,

Doc

I only say this because Dr. Oz sometimes has vivid descriptions of things that people might have, and if say that information was given to the wrong person(ie someone who is already a hypochondriac) it can prove costly.
