I got a vitamin B6/12 shot combo on my hip.now the side of my leg near hip running down leg is numb. Is this ok? I've had many B12/6 that were ok.

Should heal soon: Most likely the shot caused trauma to a nerve. This is unfortunate but it should fully heal within a short time. You might try the homeopathic remedies Arnica (for trauma) and Hypericum (for nerve injuries). if it it not better within a few days acupuncture and micro-current therapy can help too. Generally if injections are given in the upper outer quadrant of the buttocks such injuries are rare. ...Read more

Neuropathy: It sounds like your doctors have done a work-up for the common causes of neuropathy. This is a diffuse process that affects the peripheral nerves and leads to the symptoms of pain and tingling that you describe. There are additional tests like emgs, nerve conduction tests, and even nerve biopsies that can be done. However, these are frequently uncomfortable tests. Work with your neurologist. ...Read more

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

B6 toxicity is well recognized: There are a few questions that need to be asked in this case. Exactly how much B6 was the patient taking? According to recommended standards 200mg daily is the limit. Toxicity is thought to occur at levels of 1000mg. daily and above though much lower have been reported on rare occasions(100-300mg). Secondly, what exactly was the quality of her pain? Described symptoms of neural toxicity involves sensory neuropathy described mainly as burning dysesthesias and numbness. The case talks about a RADICULOPATHY. That is typically not the same type of pain as we find in chemical toxicities. Pain in the feet could very well be dysesthesias but the history could be a bit more specific there in order to attach more positive points for B6 sequelae.

Been taking vitamin b complex (125 ) for about 3 months now  notice tingling , numbness @ fingers. Is there something a can take to get rid of B6 fast?

Probably not from B6: Extensive evidence shows that it's unusual to have adverse effects from b6 unless one takes 600 mg a day or more, though there are rare reports of adverse effects with doses as low as 200 mg/day. 125 mg is not known to cause neuropathy. Your symptoms are probably not due to b6. B6 does not accumulate in the body so if you stop it you will eliminate it quickly. See a doc to assess the true cause. ...Read more
