I have pernicious anemia and get B12 shots for the rest of my life and have gastrointestinal problems very frequently. Recently I started to get episodes where my spine would spasm (and of course, I have 2 lumbar herniations which hurt me terribly and a nerve affecting both legs and neck, C3 herniation with nerve impingements on both sides of my neck) and then it would start affecting my heart where it would shake and it wasn't palpatations. I started getting shaking all over my body and the chills and then it would stop only to start again in 5 minutes. I was rushed to the hospital and I was like a person with parkinsons with their arms shaking uncontrollably and my legs where I couldn't walk steady. I felt swelling occurring in my throat and thought I would suffocate to death and then it just passed. I went to see a neurologist and he said that I am getting spasms in my spine and that my body is going into an inflammatory state and that the process has started. I don't really know what that means....realistically....but I do know I'm in trouble. I wanted to know if by fixing my herniations in my spine, the inflammatory process would get better....yes.....or......no......? Does anyone have any ideas? I want to get better ......and will do anything in the process! Thanks everyone!
