How would you describe it? I am a bit uncertain what is normal and what is not when it comes to numbness, tingling and pins and needles. I have been ill for so long cannot say how a person is supposed to feel!
Are those feelings constant when lacking b12, or coming and going? I can have tingling i.e today after some physical action. I have been off of stronger b12 for 6 days. Sort of an experiment, but also trying to get other nutrients and vitamins in balance as well. Had good and not so good results before with b12. I feel I am running out of b12, sleeping less, waking up in the middle of the night to pee.
But during the years I have often a lot of pins and needles, just sitting down for a while, not even in uncomfortable position. Now I can have some on my hands when reading on bed. I definitely had long term numbness on my right side of back, which I figured out after using b12 for a while since it passed. I thought my back is just bad, my right side was so stiff and under shoulder blade it was constant numbness. Now it feels much more normal. Even my posture changed after few days on b12 since I was able to stand still properly! Now I just have normal muscle ache for having such a bad posture for years.
I have few times lost sense of feeling from my middle finger after knitting a pair of socks. Took approximately 6 months to gain the sense back each time. But for me they come and go. I wonder is that normal or is it just something else ?
I had doctors appointment on friday and he confirmed I should continue on b12, that I do have autoimmune reaction/disease but could not say more about it and only ordered another blood test, serum levels. But he said the best indicator is how I feel.
Have not yet figured out how to deal with physical stress. When I do more physical stuff then 1000 mcg/sublingual does not seem to be enough.
