Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Tingling and numbness

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-11-01

Question:
Hello I'm 7 weeks along and have seen my doctor last week for the first time(also had 2 mc in the last 12 months). I showed the doctor what supplements I had been taking and one was 100mg of B6. She said it was too much and to continue with just the Bcomplex. Having said that, I've been off of it for 5 days and for the last 3 days I wake up at night and both of my arms are pins and needles from my elbows down. In the morning it takes a good 2 hours for the pins and needles to stop. I've seen that some web sites suggest taking B6 10-25mg 3 times per day to help with morning sickness. Now I'm on diclectin and so far touch wood this is helping. What do you suggest? The numbness things is quite irritating and bothersome. I've been tested for ctunnel with the electric thing and it was negative. Thanks in advance Heather

Answer:
This is a question that cannot be answered at this website. The numbness and tingling is probably not related to your NVP, you should see your doctor to examine these symptoms further.
