Hi there I started off with a numb foot for past 4 months. I then take 2-3 days of High Dose Vitamin B tablets, 2 days later I have a whole host of ghastly neuro symptoms completely out of the blue, dizziness, confusion, eyesight problems, extreme anxiety, insomnia and nerve tremors in both legs. These on the whole subside 2 days later leaving tingling in both feet and legs. 2 days later I start 1000mcg sub B12 tablets and the tingling is worse and my calf musles are stiff - what is going on???? Can taking such high doses of B12 make things worse, is the dose too strong for me or is this a normal reaction???? Dont know what to do - stop or carry on. Feel inclined to start on B12 injections (pending formal blood tests results) and forget worry of my allergies and whether I might react to B12 injections and just go for them without further delay - what is the worst that can happen??? If it does transpire I have some horrible degenerative nerve disease can taking B12 in such high does make things worse??? I would not be surprised to have B12 deficiency - been vegan for years, have count of 282 and displaying text book signs. My neurologist doesnt believe its possible to get B12 deficiency unless you are over 60 with kidney or liver disease and a count of under 200 - that surely cant be right. I am so confused. Anything anyone can add from experience would be so much appreciated. Tracey
