B complex and Anxiety

I wanted to tell a person struggling with anxiety about my blog, but when I looked I found this was still in my drafts. It contains three pieces of conversation that was had on a chat format for PWP.

“Weird but wonderful,

I’ve been having unfounded anxiety lately where I constantly feel like fight or flight jitters. Long story short, I read on some random website that B complex can help with this. Lo and behold, it did! (Or) I’m enjoying the placebo effect again. I also took a D vitamin today.

I actually have been avoiding B complex because I would think this would interfere with carbidopa, but I seem to be having a really good day of low anxiety and very mild PD symptoms.”

“Elevation of plasma homocysteine (hyperhomocysteinemi) has been linked to cardiovascular disorders, an increased risk of fractures in the elderly, stroke, and to neurological conditions such as PD and Alzheimer’s. Even mild elevations in homocysteine can significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke and heart attack and increase the risk of cognitive decline in the future.”

“Many studies have shown that PWP are often deficient in b12, and lacking the vitamin can cause all kinds of neurological, psychiatric, and motor symptoms. B12 is also a methyl donor, so it can certainly cause anxiety and panic attacks in some that are over methylated at high doses, but more commonly it’ll have an opposite effect in those who are undermethylated. Get tested and supplement adequately.”

“Have you tried the Hardy’s den yet? Worth a shot. It has lots of trace minerals too. Maybe you have a few things missing in your diet so this tops them up as well as all the b vitamins.”

Since anxiety isn’t a problem for me, I haven’t pursued checking out Hardy’s Daily Essential Nutrients. But I left it in, for what it is worth. Sue

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
