About 5 months ago, I came to my primary with some tingles / numbness that kept popping up in my hands and feet. My primary checked my blood levels which was super low. She decided to give me B12 supplments (1000mcg) and I have been taken them since. At the same time, I decided to do a follow up and schedule with a neurologist to rule out anything else it could be. He prescribed me gabapentin to help with the numbness / pins and needles / tingles.
Well, I noticed that my body started having some weird side effects when I started taking gabapentin like twitching and red splotches on my skin I decided to stop taking it. When I did this, I noticed that my numbness had gotten worse since I was diagnosed.
I went back to my primary a couple of weeks ago since I was having something else going on and decided to ask the doctor for self-inection shots and to get re-tested for B12. The nurse called me back when my tests were in and said that my levels were good (I never got a number).
My numbness is consistent and in patches - it's on the left side of my left wrist and my left thumb, on the upper part of my left shoulder, the left side of my neck, and my cheek, and my right leg.
I am still following up with my neurologist to rule out any other things it could be, but the testing and rescheduling is somewhat slow.
My question is will the numbness start to go away or is there another issue going on?
