Hi all, I'm new to this site. I was diagnosed with B12, folate, and vitamin D deficiency due to absorbency issues caused by weight loss surgery. So I don't officially have pernicious anemia but I hope I'm still welcome. My symptoms have been classic B12 deficiency symptoms. Weakness, panic, memory problems, Etc. But the weird part is this, I figured out that I have a lot of swelling in my neck. When I press on it at the base of my skull it feels like someone put a cattle prod to my brain. And it sets off severe panic as well as weakness and tingling of my entire right side. I have been icing my neck regularly and it helps a lot. Has anyone else had something like this? I have an appointment with a neurologist but I would really love to know if anyone else had this. I'm assuming it has to do with damaged myelin sheath and or spinal cord, but I have not yet had an MRI. I've been supplementing for 4 months and most of my original symptoms are either gone or much better, but my neck is still a problem and my spinal cord feels burny sometimes. The burning just started in the last week or so and I'm scared that there's something else wrong. But maybe it's just part of the healing? Anyone with similar symptoms please talk to me. I feel so alone.
