Yes, a stitch in time saves nine as we say here - maybe you do in the States. My cousin is a medical rep and says the billions that could be saved if money was spent trying to catch things before they became big problems.... I think I would be more proactive in trying to find the reason for all this myself if it weren't for the fact that the symptoms wax and wane. At the moment I have no symptoms but a few weeks ago I could feel tingles and buzzing and thought if I held a light bulb it might light up!
I am hoping here that someone else with a bit more knowledge will chime in but if someone has been starved of, say, B12, I am thinking that it may take some time for the nerves to mend.
Can anyone else help here?
