Hi, I suffer from trigeminal neuralgia, a rare neurological disorder. I have been in remission for over a year but the condition is unmistakably coming back. This has coincided with a period of high stress (splitting from a partner of 40 years with all that entails, i.e. getting a new house, clearing out, selling up and general grief and upset) so it doesn't seem like a coincidence to me.
I have always felt sure my TN is a B12 problem and I get monthly injections which sent the condition into remission and have kept it there until this happened. I'm wondering, therefore, what effects, if any, stress has on B12 uptake or even levels. I tried Googling it but all I got was reasons to take B12 to control stress, not the other way round!
Does anyone know of any adverse effects of stress on B12 - uptake or levels -, or any studies/research on this? I'd be REALLY grateful for any input. if I could nip this in the bud before it deteriorates further that would be beyond fab. Thanks!
