Started this for Hashimoto's related fatigue, as recommended by thyroid pharmacist Izabella Wentz. She suggests 600mg/daily as Hashi patients are almost always deficient in B1. I started w/100mg 2x/day. After 1 day of taking it I developed a weird tingling throughout my body

Severe deficiency after alcoholism, symptoms included paresthesias, nutcracker esophagus, restless legs, neuropgenic muscle atrophy. In large doses, seems to deplete B5. Be careful not to treat just one apparent deficiency. Other deficiencies (such as B5, B7 and B9 and B12) can produce same symptoms. Full blood from a competent medical professional, whose responsibility is to the patient, and not to a stingy system trying to save a buck is essential.

I have been a severe alcoholic for more than 20yrs. I've been aware for years of death due to cirrhosis, kidney failure, etc. but had never heard of WKS until it happened to me. The Korsokoffs side of it is life changing. I was tested by a psychologist and confirmed. I was immediately put on B1, and told never to drink again. I haven't so far, that was 19 months ago. It has taken a long time and a lot of hard (sometimes emotionally draining) work to try to rebuild my memory (both short and long term). I couldn't remember my immediate familys' names, I couldn't remember basic words (hallway, window, shark, etc.). I knew what everything was, I could picture them mentally, but I couldn't remember the name or word. It was weird because most of the loss was with nouns, not verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc. I was very embarrassed to hold conversations because of this. I am relatively bright, and taught high school level math up to Calculus for 23 yrs. So this Korsokoffs syndrome was both mentally and emotionally debilitating to me. After not drinking, taking B1, and working very hard at challenging myself mentally; I started noticing my memory coming back into full shape again about 6 months ago. I still take B1 and practice rebuilding my memory daily, and of course I no longer drink (I thank God daily for that as well). Without a good doctor and B1 this probably wouldn't have gotten better. My suggestion: If you are an alcoholic, stop drinking (AA, counseling, church, etc. Use everything available. Millions of people are willing to help you, your simple requirement is asking for help, realizing you can not do this yourself). See a good doctor and ask about WKS. Awareness is key. Best to you all.

Took shot of vitamin b1 in base of skull. Not sure how much. Works instantly. Was told to take 1 gram spread out over a day if cant take shot. Worked on my bad posture migraine, hormone and food trigger one. First shot lasted 4 months which is insanely good for me. Watch out for food triggers!! Citrus. Berries , nuts, diary, chocolate, coffee, etc etc
