Link to meds/vitamin: Please go back to your provider ASAP. Review thiamine dosage. Also make sure B6 in B complex not too high (less than 40-50 mg/day). If you have VitB 6, 9 (folate), 12 deficiency, that is one area to look. Another to investigate is neuropathy from Type II Diabetes. Discuss the use of Alpha Lipoic acid with your provider, remembering it lowers blood sugar powerfully and MUST be taken with food.
