B12 shot every 10wks last one last week but feet are tingling & burning, ankles painful, only usually happens when its due, why is it happening now?

Not from b12 defic.: B12 is often prescribed without a clearcut need for the vitamin supplement. It's 100% safe. But even if you had a genuine B12 deficiency, the supplementary dose is high enough that you should not experience any symptoms "when a shot is due." Look for another cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

Sciatica: You may have a condition called sciatica which occurs when the nerve going to your leg is pinched as it comes out of the spine to give the pain down the leg and back. Have your primary care doctor check it out to make sure your leg muscles are not getting weaker because of the nerve problem. This doctor can refer you to the appropriate specialist you need to see.

I'm still experiencing pain, tingling, pins & needles & burning from a 5th metatarsal spiral fracture 4mths from injury date. Pain in ankle + fibula als?

Delayed healing.: All your symptoms are subjective in nature. I think knowing objective symptoms such as swelling, angular deformity or discoloring might contribute to understand just what the problem is. Fifth metatarsal fractures are not the easiest to heal even under perfect circumstances. Radio-graphic evaluation might be needed to see if there is a delayed healing of the bone or just a post fracture neuritis. ...Read more

The bad news is that if you have a sensory motor neuropathy the list of causes is enormous and hepatitis c is on that list. The treatment to reverse it is removal of the offending agent which may or may not be possible ...Read more
