    Ok i feel there is a conflict between the statements you made of  : 1. "I started to get constant anxiousness and tingling lips."  And 2. : "I am starting to feel a little better".  Not trying to split hairs here, but not quite sure i understand.

    Whose advice was it to split and take half at morning and half at night?  Not saying it's a bad decision of course, just curious.  Are you able to rest well at night?  Do you ever get restless leg syndrome while trying to sleep?

    hi ruth, have you had your vitamin B12 levels tested at all?  if not, consider having a test as tingling can indicate low vitamin B12 levels.  your doctor can arrange the test
