Hi everybody! I have read countless posts on this thread and am amazed by the kind of information and support provided by the fellow members. I was diagnosed as being b12 deficient in January this year coz of memory and word finding issues with my b12 level at 180 pg/ml. I was given 5 injections of mecbl (500 MCG) during the first two weeks and then provided sublingual strips of 2000 MCG mecbl, B9 and B6 for the next 3 months. Honestly I felt terrible after getting the injections with twitching and brain fog getting worse. The symptoms subsided when I started taking the sublingual strips. Now after almost 4 months of taking the sublingual daily, I personally feel that my memory has improved a little bit but the word finding issues remain. Also recently the twitching has returned. I have read that this could be due to low levels of pottasium. That leaves me with 2 questions:
a) how safe is a 2000 MCG mecbl sublingual strip? Can it be taken daily till the neurological symptoms completely subside? Can it lead to fatal pottasium deficiency?
b) has anyone also faced the issue of slurred speech while supplementing? If yes then does any1 know if u can recover completely from it?
Looking forward to your responses. Anything at all on this would be a big help!
