Hello doctor,

I have stiffness and numbness in my hands and legs for past six months and so I cannot pick up any object properly because they slip. Before seven months, my B12 was 211, then I started to take supplements, and now it is 2000. Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are suffering from weakness in both the hands and legs. It appears like you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy. I have seen your reports, sugar is normal, B12 was low, but now it is normal. And many other routine reports are normal. My advice to you is to go and consult a neurologist or neurophysician. It is not a straightforward disease or vitamin B12 related. Please do NCV (nerve conduction velocity) or EMG (electromyography) and if necessary, go for nerve biopsy.
