Yep - I have online lab results.  Like I said, mine have always been normal to high.  Last labs showed B12 981 pg/mL range 211-946.  Since it was marked as high, I stopped taking the supplement. 


Trying to be patient - no change yet (but it's only been 24 hours) with the drops.

Miralax has helped my daughter .  Probiotics seem to help me with regularity.  So sorry to hear she's suffering so bad and unable to get the necessary tests.  What about good old fashioned prune juice?

Thanks for the link.  I had been taking B12 supplements when first diagnosed but my last couple labs showed my levels in the high range and had stopped thinking that I was getting plenty in diet alone.  I think I'll start that back up with the history of eye issues I've had.

Quick update for those following the topic.  I just got back from the ophthalmologist and he doesn't think it's optic neuritis this time.  He does see a lot of inflammation in my right eye and diagnosed it as uveitis.  He says it's common to have uveitis with various inflammatory bowel disorders.  I have steroid eye drops that he expects to work pretty quickly.  Just got over a stomach bug or a glutening 2 weeks ago so it seems plausible that this is the cause this time.  Feeling relieved that this will do the trick.  Optic neuritis was treated with 3 days of IV steroids and multiple brain MRIs and I was dreading having to go through that again.

Will do!  Can you give me a quick list of the foods that you've found to be inflammatory?  Up until recently, as long as it was gluten free, I was feeling great!  I'm sure coffee is at the top of the list but I'm not yet ready to give that up.  EEK!
