I've been dealing with Parkinson like symptoms since Nov 05. I've had the Parkinson DNA test, 3 MRI's, an EMG and have seen specialist after specialist.

I have tremors in both hands, tingles in both hands and if I am nervous my hands fish flop uncontrollable. Shake all the up my arms, and feel like have ants.

The doctors do not think I have Parkinsons, I was on 9mg of Requip and still had tremors. MRI's clean, Parkinson DNA came back with a pink marker but not Parkinsons. EMG and MRI showed that my 5 & 6 vert in neck were bulging with a pinched nerve. After having B12 tested several times it comes back on the low end of normal every time. The doctor wants me to take B12 shots, Iíve tried B12 prescriptions, didnít work.

Anybody have any input???

Blessings,
Christie
I didn't even think to get my B12 numbers till today, it's 303. One of my neuro specialist said neck wasn't bad enough to have surgery, and not to go and get it adjusted, because it could cause me to have a stroke. I WENT to get neck adjusted it feels fine but still have tingle in both hands along with tremors. Hopefully the injections will fix this. Do your symptoms get worse if there is any anxiety? Oh, I'm only 42.

My father has PA, and gets injections. I recently checked his blood work, since after reading about b12 deficiency for myself, I saw it was in the 200 range.

I believe that I have heard that below 500 is at a treatable level, and also that some aim for 800 to achieve some resolution of symptoms. I would definately talk to my dr and discuss what range you might aim for.

I have urged my father to request more frequent shots and see if that helps him, with his levels and current fatigue.
