I'm a 40 year old woman. I was diagnosed with anemia that was treated with iron supplements. I've had tingling in my face, mouth,tongue and hands for over a year and a half.
I"m irritable and have trouble concentrating. I'm often depressed.
I've had plenty of neurological exams including MRI. and CT. I even had a heart monitor, EEG and EKG. All have come back normal.
I even started going to an acupuncturist who diagnosed the problem as "low blood levels".
In my research, I've found all these symptoms to be low levels of b-12 that could have been occurring over many years.
I believe that. Though, I've always been thin, I've never eaten right.
Anyway, for over a month I've been taking sub-lingual b-12 supplements. They recommend 1000-2000 mg. if low I'm taking 1500.m
AS of today my symptoms have not improved, if anything the facial tingling/numbness is worse.
I thought I had this figured out. But I should be feeling better and I'm really not.
Do I need to give it more time or have I damaged nerves that I can't repair?:confused:
