Im a 20 year old woman, i have a normal omnivore diet.
after a number if misdiagnosis ( slight MS, epilepsy), it was determined that my low b12 levels (230) was the cause of my symptoms( tingling hands and feet, falling down, problems walking normally and with stairs, feeling weak, loss of muscle tone.)
I already have low blood pressure, and hypoglycemia so it definatly wasn't diabetic neuropathy.

They've treated me with a number if b12 injections, and boosted my levels way up. but im still having problems.
tingling in the hands, and now shaky tremoring legs - on stairs and with just a normal day of walking.
im wondering if its permanate nerve damage.

and im thinking now that mabe its anemia too, since my RBC is low along with the hematocrit and hemoglobin levels. according to the normal levels women should have. - no ones mentioned this to me.

and my neuro is ready to dismiss me for being clumsy. i think she's wrong.

any thoughts?
