Re: Is 544 considered low for B-12 level with neuropathy?
My B-12 level is normal too. After Harry (6Foot3) suggested taking B-12, I talked to my family doctor. He was very willing to try it but my neuro wasn't very thrilled and said it wouldn't help. My family doc gave me the RX for at-home B-12 injections.
I think it has been beneficial to me. I can't pinpoint exactly what has helped the most as I changed my diet and added supplements. The only other RX I take is Lyrica. I was on a pain pill but decided to forego that unless the pain was really bad. I haven't taken a pain pill in 3 weeks.
If you read some of the B-12 posts, you can learn how it works with nerves. Since it can't hurt, I think it would be worth trying for your mother. Most drugstores or health stores sell B-12 sublingual (under the tongue).
My mother was suffering from muscle weakness and shooting pains in her legs after taking a med for cholestrol. She started on the B-12 and now has very little weakness. I'm sure it won't work for everyone but I do think it is worth trying.
