Re: [IPk] Neuropathy

If you dont mind me asking, at what HB levels does your neuropathy seem to 
flare up? and would this be before you were on the statins?  I also have a 
vitamin b12 deficiency which can cause neuropathy if left undetected, and 
for at least a year I had terrible suffering unecessarily. When I started 
reveiving my B12 shots, the pains subsided, but i had a very bad flare up 
last year, but I was told this was due to an excess of Chloraphemical and 
raised hb (8.5) BUT I live in consant fear of it returning, as it was so bad 
I couldnt even sleep. But again, I am unsure if this was due to the 
chloraphemical or my raised hb or what.  Anyway, I dont feel so alone now, 
thanks for replying. :)  Mel
