With numb hands I would suspect low B12. Did they test you? And if so, what was the number? When I was having severe symptoms, my number was 326, which on most drs scales is normal (anything below 200 is low), but my hematologist knows people can have symptoms at any level 500 or lower, so I got the B12 injections and the symptoms disappeared. I also needed prescription strength folic acid.

What was your MCV value? It's a number on your cbc that measures your red blood cells. If it's high, it points to B12 or folic acid deficiency. If it's low, it could be iron deficiency. If you have both then your MCV could be normal - and in that case they'd need to test your folic acid, iron levels and B12.
