Could the answer to ‘air hunger’ relief lie in a simple supplement?
Air hunger, a symptom of FMS and CFS, is fairly common in those who suffer with FMS/CFS/ME. It is the annoying, and sometimes alarming, feeling that you cannot take a deep breath. The sensation is similar to the feeling that one cannot fill their lungs with enough air.
When I experience a flare up in my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, this symptom can stay with me for days. It feels as if my respiratory system is in a ‘excitable’ state, kind of like your stomach can feel is you eat too much sugar. As a result, I feel as if my breathing is not relaxed and easy. I am always attempting to take a ‘deep breath’ every 15 seconds.Air hunger can be caused by having a low amount of Vitamin B12 in your body. Click To Tweet
Air hunger can be caused by having a low amount of Vitamin B12 in your body. As I was researching the issue, I kept coming across the fact that many Fibromyalgia and CFS patients are also low in Vitamin B12. In fact, many people tend to run low in V B12. If you think you may be low in B12, check with your physician before implementing any supplements into your diet.
