Okay, I am not a big fan of MSNBC but this article really got my attention. Granted the cause for TM or CVIDS is still unknown, and I don’t think I can make a direct connection establishing this is what created my instance. However, when the symptoms really started kicking in, I was taking all Vitamin Shoppe products. I had used them in the past via mail order or a trip to Boston. Then they opened a store in the mall area close to where I lived. I stopped using GNC and was buying everything from multi-vitamins to protein powders. Again it might be a stretch to link the onset of my symptoms but just something to ponder.
