I've had more blood work to determine why my body is not processing Folic Acid and Vitamin B-12.

I went to see my PA-C because was experiencing terrible cramping, primarily in my right calves and foot, but also symtems in left leg. I had two surgeries last year to remove a cyst that was growing into my spine at L5. I went in initially because of really bad sciatica pains. Would this be a cause?

My mother died of lukemia (sp?) over 16 years ago. I have had Stage 2 Breast Cancer with HER-2 12 years ago.

Anyone with any suggestions would be appreciated.
