    Found this video on a Mayo blog regarding major neurologic damage. Amazing!

    Over 50 minutes!

    From the youtube page:

    Vitamin B12 deficiency can sneak up on you, and can lead to a myriad of diseases and disorders. Know the signs and symptoms. You could be deficient yet still test in the so-called range of "normal B12" on a blood test, especially if you have taken an oral B12 supplement of uncertain quality, or you have been under-treating the deficiency. Oral B12 supplements do not work for all patients; patients with digestive/absorption problems benefit from B12 injections, as do patients with nerve damage.

    If you haven't watched this, it's well worth the 50 minutes of time to see. Mentions dysautonomia and obviously lots of neuro issues. I found this on a Mayo Clinic blog, so they clearly stand beside it.

    I saw Dr. Cheney for 15 years, and during that time he prescribed B12 shots.

    Now I use sublingual lozenges, (instead of shots) from Whole Foods, (beware of where you buy vitamins and supplements, as many are sourced from China and southeast Asia). They may say they're 'distributed from Ohio', or any other U.S. state. but they can be sourcing from China...So if you're buying from Costco or chain drugstores, and not a reputable health food store, beware.
