Already wrote this on April 11th 2020 but I was just too lazy to post it.

I'm just reading the book "The Calcium Bomb: The Nanobacteria Link to Heart Disease & Cancer" because I suspect I not only suffer from PET but also from CFS.

When I read that these nanobacteria are causing all kinds of calcifications in the body I kind of had an eureka moment.

Is this the missing link and the root cause which causes the nerves connected to the muscles which open the ET to misfire?

I guess many PET sufferers, like me, also very often have a stiff neck that makes crackling sounds when moved in big circles.

This could probably be a cervical ossification which pinches the Vagus nerve.

The Vagus nerve is actualy not contained in the spinal cavity ("Because of its nonspinal route, the vagus nerve itself is not directly damaged from spinal cord injury (SCI).")

I just wanted to point out how nerves can be pinched by ossification.

Some people seem to have GERD due to lower and/or upper esophageal sphincter dysfunction.

"The esophagus is innervated by the vagus nerve and the cervical and thoracic sympathetic trunk".

Also PET sufferers often have accompanying diseases like TMJD, prostatits or interstitial cystitis that are related to calcification.

DMSO is officially approved for treating interstitial cystitis, probably because it helps to decalcify the whole body.

I'm currently using Himalaya Herbs Cystone, it really removes a lot of calcium from your kidneys.

Did you ever experience Proctalgia fugax? It is literally a pain in the ass. Smile

I think there could be a connection although it is connected to the pudendal nerve and not the vagus nerve.
