Hello, I have been reading over many of the posts and would love some direction. I am a 36 year old healthy male. This past January I began experiencing random episodes of chest tightness, tingling in my hands and tension in my jaw. I thought I was having a heart attack. After 3 months of tests, and several trips to the emergency department, I was told there was nothing wrong with me. The episodes continued and I began to think it was stress, even though I am a very balanced and easy going person. Then one weekend, I began to get severe numbness and tingling in my toes, to the point of burning. I noticed some tingling in my hands also so I began to review my blood work.
On the 4 sets of blood work over a period of 6 months, my RBC, HG, and HCT were all low or on the bottom level of normal. As well, the one time they measured my B12 it was 145 PMOL/L. I spoke with my MD who had no concerns about B12 and sort of brushed me off. I spoke with a naturopath who was much more concerned and recommended I begin methylcobalamin b12 sublingually in high does right away. I did this for 10 days between 5000 and 10,000mcg, however i broke out in hives that are very itchy. I stopped immediately taking the B12 and meet with the naturopath again tomorrow. After reading online I see an increased histamine response is a common side effect. I have been off the b12 for about a week, the hives and itching are still there, better some days worse others. I would love some help and direction to relieve the itching and ways to determine if the B12 deficiency is causing many of my issues.
Thanks for the help, I appreciate this community so much and i have just joined today.
