Nerve (Definition)

The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

Dr. I feel very nerves & stressed my vitamin B12 report show -156 observed value & 25dh vitamin -d3 shows -17.44 is this a reason of my behavior.

May be factors...: Lots of causes for stress and nervousness, including poor nutrition due to diet, disease, etc. Usually not the root cause, but certainly doesn't help the situation. Vitamin d deficiency not likely to be directly related to complaints noted. B12 deficiency can cause neutopsychiatric symptoms, not usually the ones you mention. Look for other factors as well. ...Read more

Our bodies start growing from the day we r born, bones require calcium, phosphorus, vitamin d etc. To grow. How do nerves of the body grow? What they need?

Nutrition-genetics: Like the rest of the body, our brain and nerves need good nutrition (vitamins, minerals, fats, etc).
Ensure intake of all nutrients, especially some fats that contain cholesterol (without excess) and vitamin B12 (present in animal products).
If vegan, supplement your diet with vitamin 12.

They said that nerves which damaged from Vitamin B12 deficiency couldn't be cured, is this means that if Anxiety or Depression from VB12 is Permanent?

They said that nerves which damaged from Vitamin B12 deficiency couldn't be cured, is this means that if Anxiety or Depression from VB12 is Permanent?

Not necessarily: It's hard to find reliable information on this subject but I believe the nerve damage that's hard to heal is more the peripheral nerves than brain tissue. To treat neurological symptoms from B12 deficiency get the B12 level to at least 800 but also take a full B complex with the L-5MTHF form of folate (folic acid) & consider Fish Oil, Bacopa, Ashwagandha, American Ginseng, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and lipoic acid. ...Read more

Have drop foot (b12 deficiency post gastrectomy)& was told nerves regenerate @. 1/month, can I do anything to speed this up? Vitamins? Exercise? Rx?

Have drop foot (b12 deficiency post gastrectomy)& was told nerves regenerate @. 1/month, can I do anything to speed this up? Vitamins? Exercise? Rx?

No known way: Nerve cell growth is dependent on 'axonal transport' proteins and necessary nutrients have to flow along the length of the nerve cell to regenerate some of the far end. In a long legged 6' man these nerves can be 4' long from spine to foot that's a long way without anything to pump it along. Nothing is known to speed this up. ...Read more

As per my doc, h pylori causes formation of undigested food which causes demyelination of nerves & vitamin deficiency & numbness n tingling. Pls advc?

Contentious: I'm not a focused expert on this, but from my reading I am not ready to tell anyone that helicobacter infestation causes demyelination, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis or vitamin deficiency. Perhaps I misunderstood, but I do know the "pop" claims. May I ask the help of my healthtap colleagues & also suggest that you are right to be skeptical and to seek another opinion? Best wishes. ...Read more

TransientParesthesia: If the nerve damage is from pressure following surgery and the nerve hasn’t been severed then there is a pretty good chance that recovery will occur in 3-6 month. Magnesium, and B vitamins, especially Vitamin B1, B12 and Vitamin A are recommended. ...Read more

Twitching everywhere, mainly legs while relaxing. Neurologist said (relaxed) nerves and prescribed vitamin B shots 2/week, had my first but nothing? Worried I may have malabsorption, also skipped beat

Impression: Possible issues could include benign fasciculations, but might consider early Restless Leg Syndrome. Do not understand rationale for B vitamin shots here. If you do have malabsorption, a gastroenterologist could help. ...Read more

Does anyone know what vitamins may help with cidp nerve disease?

Individualized supps: To the best of my knowledge there is no research to help answer your
question, but that does not mean vitamins can't help. Cidp is an
autoimmune disease & vitamins help with similar illnesses. Autoimmune
disease is caused by a combination of genetic predisposition, environmental
toxins & infection. These must all be addressed. Please hit the tap button

What vitamins help heal nerve damage from injury?

What vitamins help heal nerve damage from injury?

Nerve injury repair: Nerves may be either peripheral or central. Those outside the brain and spinal cord generally have a coating of myelin that is sensitive to b vitamins, specifically b1, b6, b12, and folate (folic acid). Methylfolate (folic acid) and B12 are indicated in the treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. But before just taking some, have yourself tested to determine if they are needed, and diagnose the reason for nerve injury. ...Read more

B12, C, E, AMP: Although there is no overwhelming evidence, a very limited number of studies have suggested that vitamin c and B12 injections may improve symptoms. Intramuscular amp (adenosine monophosphate) has also helped some patients in one large trial. Additionally, oral or topical vitamin e, topical capsaicin or peppermint oil may offer some relief as well. ...Read more

Probably none: There are no objective, scientific studies that I've seen showing benefits of supplements for tympanic nerve damage. I frequently will take a balanced multivitamin plus some extra vitamin c for general health. Some people think a balanced b complex supplement helps with the nervous system, and some think omega 3s help with brain cell stabilization. ...Read more

1000 mcg injections per month should suffice. ...Read more

Does vitamin B12 deficiency cause brain and nerve problems?

Yes: In the early 19th century, scientists noted weakness and numbness with B12 deficiency. Recently, B12 has been shown to upregulate neurotrophic factors (chemicals [cytokines] that help nerve cells grow) & downregulate neurotoxic factors (chemicals that break down nerve cells). In other words, B12 helps nerve cells grow and prevents their destruction by naturally occurring brain chemicals. ...Read more
