When I was 27 years old, I worked as a graphic designer. I had just finished my MA in Electronic Graphics in the UK and returned to Israel. I was working as an independent designer. The home internet was just starting, websites were a new thing, and designing websites was a very new profession, so I was very much in demand. I was at the right place at the right time.
I had a ton of work, and all my clients were eager to finish their websites as quickly as possible, putting a lot of stress on me to finish their projects quickly and to a high standard. The stress was real!
One day, I woke up with a horrible pain in my throat. I looked in the mirror and saw sores on my tonsils. Many of them It was so painful that it made me cry. I remember going to a throat doctor and him telling me that the sores were called 'aphta', and that there was nothing he could do to help me.
My mom was living in the US at the time (in Bethesda, MD), and she had a neighbor who worked at the NIH. He looked around in his research database and found research showing that some cases of aphta sores are caused by a lack of vitamin B12. He said the researcher was a dentist in Tel Aviv, Israel (5 minutes from my house!).
I went to that dentist, and he suggested that I start taking B12 vitamin (and have the blood test as well). I remembered that he asked me if I was under stress, and at 27 I answered, No, but my clients are 😅. Shortly after starting to take the B12 vitamin, the aphta sores in my mouth disappeared! Such an 'easy' solution for such a painful problem for me! I was so grateful. 💛
Until today, every time I start feeling the smallest pain in my mouth and I know that the aphta is starting, I start taking B12, and it disappears.
