I know that I've seen a lot of threads about b-12 deficiency I'm new here so I don't know how to navigate through all these forums. I'm sorry if this is the incorrect way how to do it...

In march of this year I started have some slight tingling numbness in my sinus area. On my cheeks. I went to several doctors and they said it was just a allergice reaction and one diagnosed Rosacea. Then the tingling moved down my face and to my head. I got these weird sensations and feelings. Then the numbness went to my extremeties legs, arms, feet, hands...sometimes a burning sensation ont he back of my upper arms. Burning sensation/tingling on my scalp. I started having anxiety attacks, and just depressed because all of this is happening to me.

I'm 37years old. I'm female. Last October I had Lap Band surgery and have lost 134lbs...With much more to go. I felt on top of the world losing weight...getting mobility and exercising more. Now I feel like I've run into a brick wall. I'm tired, irritated all the time. I am stressed that something more is wrong with me than b-12 deficiency.

I was sent to a neurologist they did an MRI on my brain and they said the MRI was fine. They didn't feel like I had MS...By b-12 levels were at 174 which they said were low. I got a serious of six shots in a row, and then was told tofollow up with PCP to get a shot once a month. That is going to happen on Friday. SO its been a month since my shots and I still feel the numbness tingling all over, and I still feel like crud. I feel as if my neurologist just passed the buck after I told them after the shots I still felt the tingling numbness and everything that went along with that. >>>I am having massive hair loss that is stressing me out. I just don't know what to do when I go to the doctor on friday to get my b-12 shot. This will be the first I see this doctor because I changed my primary care physician....so do I tell her I'm still having these symptoms...I"m concerned it is more than b-12..I'm scared that I will never feel normal again...I know I am getting on my familys nerves..but they have been supportive..

I am also taking multivitamin, and I started taking the Methyl 5000mcg sublingual Jarrow on my own, but the numbness tingling, vision, head scalp burning tingling still persist...

Please can anyone give me any advise Thank you.
