Thought I should post because I remembered stuff I had forgotten.

Waking up this morning, I haven't found anything new but experienced a different type of sensation that I suspect is linked to B vitamin problems causing nerve damage due to the nature of the pain.
It's a variably pulsating pain, not with my pulse but less often and more random, and it hurts quite a bit for a second or so, and then dies down. I remember now that when I started to get that it would wake me up at night, and that was when a doctor prescribed me pain meds for it. They actually worked the couple days I was on it amazingly well, took away all the tingling and swolleness feeling too (unsure if took away any swelling itself, wasn't wearing a ring), but of course there are side effects like fatigue...just what I needed, MORE brain fog, and then I found out it was actually an anti-epileptic and might not be properly approved for neuropathic pain. (I'm very wary of any drugs that involve neurologic stuff since bad experiences with anti-depressants.)
Anyways, since I started taking large amounts of B12 daily that stabbing type pain pretty much disappeared, although not the tingling and soreness and swolleness.
I'm not taking my B12 everyday lately. I had been not taking it daily because I bought one that has B6 in it as well and I'm certain that there's a fairly low dose for toxicity to that which can actually cause the nerve damage instead of fix it. I'll just have to buy a separate pill again is all.

I do know that some nerve damage may not be fixable, if that is truly what it is. What I don't like is the feeling that the tingling may be covering more of my hands and feet than it used to.
