Hello, I am new to this forum and was looking for some help answering some questions.
Story:(sorry long winded)
About two months ago on a sunday I woke up after a night of partying with a irregular hangover. My hands were tingling(pins and needles) and my left foot felt like it was vibrating. I was also dizzy(not uncommon for a hangover). During the week after I started to experience disorientation(very disturbing), more dizziness, reduction in pins and needles in hands and continued vibration in feet.
I did some research on the internet and the first thing that popped up from my symptom description was B12. I also have a very high stress job One week after symptoms started I decided to go to the doctor for some blood work. The doctor didn't want to test me for B12 but told him I would find a new doctor if he didn't.
Got Serum tested and it was 293. Doctor sent me a letter saying that my symptoms are possibly from a borderline deficiency He said to take a b12 OTC supplement. No presences of anemia either. Everything else was perfect. I told him that the pills aren't good enough. I then received 1 shot per week of cyano 1000mcg for 4 weeks. He did an MMA test and another serum b12 test 3 weeks later and found that to be ok(b12 1300).Some symptoms improved and some new ones came out. (cold feeling hands, occasional warming sensation in left foot). Since then I found this amazing forum with a lot of very knowledgable people. I stopped taking the cyano oral pills and started on Fredd's plan for the active sublinguals, methlyfolate, potassium, B-right. etc. I am currently up to 4 jarrow sublingual MB12 5000mcg's per day,1 jarrow 3000mcg adensoylcobalamin, 2 metylfolate, and 2 b-right per day.
The worst symptoms I have been having is dizziness and brain fog. I have been trying to exercise as well(to lose weight) and this has proven very diffcult and frustrating. I am sometimes to the point of passing out.
I no longer have tingling of the hands or wierd feelings in them(except them falling asleep during sleep). The warming and vibration feeling has improved in left foot.
The most annoying and problematic symptoms so far are the brain fog and dizziness. Can anyone please tell me how long it takes for these two symptoms to improve? I started treatment 2 months ago but just started Fredd's treatment 2 weeks ago.

You may need other supplements for these things to work such as A, D, E, C, magnesium, POTASSIUM, and other things. On the b12 thread you will have the collective experience of thousands of people who read it. If you haven't read the basics http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=62327 you need to. Pay attention to the newer posts and what we have found out about paradoxical folate deficiency which could be part of your problem.
