Please tell me you have had your B-12 level checked!! B-12 helps make
the myelin sheath covering on nerves and a lack of it can cause your
symptoms. A lack can also lead to progressive numbness to the point of
paralysis! An outside source is needed because of the malabsorption of
this vital nutrient in most IBD suffers; therefore, you might need
monthly deep intramuscular injections of B-12 (cyanocobalalum). A B-12
level has to be SPECIFICALLY ordered, it is not routinely performed in
any blood tests!
I hope this helps, Stephan...
