Just wondering if anyone has any strategies for lessening chest pain, particularly in the way of supplements? Or anything else? Heart palpitations, flutters, etc have been off-and-on symptoms of mine for a long time, even before the onset of CFS; and I've been to doctors, the ER, had ECGs, a heart monitor, tests for having had a heart attack, etc - but everything is always 'normal' (I'm sure you can all relate to how it feels to be told that!). So I don't think there's any need to look for medical help now either. It's just that over the past few months, chest pain has been an increasingly common symptom for me, to the point where I have been in debilitating pain today. Usually this kind of pain only comes with palpitations, which go away eventually. But I think this may be related to more stress on my system. In particular, I stopped bingeing on sugary foods about 3 weeks ago and started the Paleolithic diet, which always does good things for me when I can stick with it. But I also gradually lose weight on it - which I need to do, because I'm very big, and my weight has a negative impact on my life. However, I think the weight loss is a stress on my system. But I can't go back to eating how I was, so I guess I will need to find a way to deal with this 'new normal'. My brain is clearer, I'm less anxious, and I have more energy and motivation - but also this horrible long-lasting chest pain, which spreads up my neck to my head so that I have a headache to match. NSAIDs ease it a bit, though I know those put a burden on my liver, and I want to take as few of them as possible. And to be honest, when symptoms are this troubling, it's scary, especially when they have just popped up to be added to the mix that already existed. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, how have you dealt with it? Thanks! By the way, I take the following: 18g vit C in divided doses, Swanson B-50 complex, Solgar B12 1000 mcg, 800mg mag citrate in divided doses, krill oil, Himalayan sea salt (1 tsp in a glass of water in the morning), ashwagandha, and ginkgo biloba. Tried Fredd's methylation protocol, wasn't for me, but ended up with some good supplement ideas that do seem to help (the 1000 mcg B12 especially). I don't seem to do well on any kind of amino acid supplement, and most things that address mitochondrial dysfunction (e.g. d-ribose) don't seem to help either.
