Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    My blood pressure was always low but has skyrocketed these past few weeks. Does anyone have any experience with this? Might it be the b12 or methylfolate or is it likely unrelated?

    Are you taking CoQ10? @Freddd has mentioned this with methylation can raise blood pressure. At least that's what my memory is telling me.

    In the early stages, the first year for me, if I took CoQ10 my BP shoot up by 50+ points, like 190/100, Now mine is down to 120/70 about half the times it's measured. I've been taking CoQ10 for 9-10 years again now. It didn't normalize in response until after a year of healing and adding AdoCbl and potassium.

    I dont know the answer to your question but the ME itself seems to be able to do things which can cause one to go from low BP to high BP spikes. It can be due to the autonomic dysfunction issues eg [probably caused throu excess noradrenaline at times going on.

    I thought CoQ10 decreases BP! I have been taking it now for months for both ME and heart benefits. I did stop it for a week and didn't notice a change in BP though so I don't think I can attribute it to coQ10.

    Thyroid hormone raised my blood pressure (T3). From about 90/60 to 115/70 or thereabouts.

    I'm glad you asked this question, though, because I'm having hot flashes while taking sublingual MeB12.

    Are your fingernails hard dry and breaking?

    I don't think they're hard, but they do break often, and they have vertical ridges. Why?

    These symptoms are low calcium in my book o_O
    May be related to high histamine from unbalanced methylation :meh:
