Hi wonderful people, I need help please, to deal with sudden symptom escalation after stress.
I was doing well, neurologist discharged me 2 months ago, with sensible advice. Then I had a burst water pipe, a huge insurance claim and 4 weeks (and counting) dealing with wrecked house & belongings. For a week now I've had the worst pins and needles ever - it feels as if blunt cocktail sticks are being poked in my fingertips and the extent is far more than usual. Currently have been lying down for 2 hours in the afternoon and am having to concentrate to breathe (new symptom - don't know how to describe it, just taking big, heavy breaths). Feel weak, confused, can't stay on my feet (which are throbbing). I stagger every time I get out of the chair / car seat / bed.
I presume this is B12 issues suddenly escalating because of stress (could it be anything else?). I've been well and stable for 6 months, on 4-weekly SI, daily Vit D and folate. Have injected twice this week after I realised I was deteriorating - first jab really had a big effect - I was energetic - but it wore off in 24 hours and second time didn't do much.
I can't think what to do. I don't think I can escape the stress as the house rebuild will take til December, I'm told... am out of work and feel this will affect job interviews...
Can anyone help? Other than more supplements and SI, I don't know what to do.
