Hi Freddd,
My original b12 level was 209, with the most significant issues being loss of thought (sometimes I would not even recognize where I was, coming from or going too, when driving in my car) extreme muscle weakness (unable to make a flight of stairs) loss of word recall and following conversations, hair loss, tingling in my calves and hands, blurred vision and foggy feeling like I was dreaming.
Before you came onto the form I got Sally's book and started with the methly b12 subs. I noticed a big difference in the foggy feeling within a week. When you came on I started on all your recommended co-factors. While everything improved I never once had that wow! feeling or detox feeling for that matter.
I still have extreme fatigue that comes and goes. I am always more energetic in the morning. I think you were one of the people who thought methly b12 did not affect teeth, but I have had to have 3 root canals since starting this. So I no longer take the b12 every day. I know I shouldn't stop but since I have never really had any big wow feelings maybe I don't need all the supplements?
I guess my big question is can one be just low in b12, raise it up and not need to do anything else? While I am typing this a million thoughts (as usual) run through my head and I know even if you agree with that, I don't so I am not sure why I am asking, sorry. I am not trying to waste your time, I feel like I am always posting the same question. I just want and answer as to why I am sooooo tired all the time. (I almost feel like I am wasting my life just trying to make it to the end of the day) One thing for sure I do usually feel better in the summer. I had a low d level of 11 and I think that does make a difference when it goes up. I am on thyroids meds and that is being monitored carefully by a doc that I respect and trust.
Thanks for any help,
Cat
