I would really like to know if anyone out there within the Pain Concern community and beyond, has had proven symptoms of a Vitamin B Complex deficiency.
What were your symptoms, did having a blood test show up the deficiency?
Were your symptoms classical of a deficiency or not?
How long were you on a supplement before you to saw any improvement in your symptoms?
Do you continue to take a Vitamin B Complex supplement, and are there any supplements that you could recommend?
I am trying to see if I might be on the right track with my own unusual symptoms. I have had so many tests, X-rays ,MRI Scans, Nerve Conduction Studies and everyone comes back as normal.
After very recently finding out that my mother and maternal grandmother, needed regular Vit B Complex supplements, and in the case of my grandmother Vit B injections. I contacted my GP who after sending me for 2 pretty full panels of blood tests, admitted that he had not asked for Vit B or Magnesium levels to be checked. It was discovered that I was indeed really deficient in Vit D, having taken supplement ever since. A further blood test now show that my Vit D are at normal levels.
My GP informed me that even though he had asked previously for other patients, the local NHS will not test for any of the other Vit B's except Vit B 12.
I am now trying to find out if a private lab would undertake this test?
I would be very grateful for any information and personal experiences.
