Has anyone suffered from peripheral neuropathy (neuropathy in hands or feet) due to a b12 deficiency?
I think diet can have a big impact on how you feel. I was having issues with certain foods so the doc checked me celiac. With B-12 deficiency, the longer it goes untreated, the worse the symptoms and impact can be. I would definitely recommend having them check. What can it hurt, right?
Hope you're feeling better soon!
I currently experiencing neuropathy in my feet. This is the first time for me. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow and I decided to do some reading based on advice I got from a friend (he's a doctor who specializes in FM and CFS). In my reading it said that a b12 deficiency can cause peripheral neuropathy in hands and feet. Now I have been eating poorly over the last year because I haven't been working so I was just eating junk because it was cheap and not very often. So I was wondering if others ever had that problem. I believe alot of doctors don't consider diet change as real way to treat illness. For example my doctor never suggested reducing inflammation by diet she just kept giving me pills. I went to dietitian because I had gained so much weight. She suggested going gluten-free to reduce inflammation and it worked. I was pain free from April til recently when the neuropathy started in the end of October.
I have nerve pain in my left foot from my back. But I have never been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, but I think with my symptoms of numbness and SO much pain in my foot, I know what it feels like!
Thanks Harlow I am hoping they can find something.
