Suggest remedy for numbness in back with cognitive impairment
er to boost her B12. They haven't identified the problem and I can't believe B12 will fix the problem. Please advise.
How old is your daughter? This will help rule in and out certtain issues
Welcome to HCM: Was her vit B12 in fact low? What was the level? And this sounds to me like MS (multiple sclerosis) have they performed and MRI, she could also be having infarcts, is she prone to blood clots, or anyone in the family, I would insist that she has an MRI for sure. This can tell more about her neurological state other than guessing.
How old is your daughter, yes the B12 is low
I am not sure why she would be B12 deficient, does she have other medical conditions specifically in her stomach? Does she have pernicious anemia, has she travelled outside the country, does she have Acid reflux? I ask as her symptoms can be explained by B12 deficiency but it is also important to find out why she became deficient, and GBS usually does not jump from location to location in the body, normally it starts in the feet and it is bilateral and creeps upwards to hands and feet and eventually affects breathing.
Sorry I thought the 44years was you. Anyway, things that could cause...
Low B12 include celiac disease, or other diseased that cause malabsorption. So I would make sure that she has celiac disease worked up and that she is not having blood loss in her stools. Parasitic infections can also cause low B12 eventually. I hope this helps, I believe that treatment for her B12 should be paramount with a follow up to find out why she has low B12 in the first place.
