b6 toxicity and ms

I know this is a strange question, but is there anyone out there who has been diagnosed with b6 toxicity and ms???
My b6 levels were well over 100 when I was tested 1 1/2 yrs ago. Levels returned to normal last year but toxicity symptoms are still with me. Diagnosed with ms in Decenber of 2008. Double whammy, since both affect my walking....(did take b6 for 14 years) OUCH!!!  Can anyone elaborate on this..
Thanks, mills1120

Hi,

Boy you did get a double whammy! I can't say this has happened to me but I will bump your question so other people will have a chance to answer.

I did check some sources on the net about B6 toxicity. It said that sometimes people can return to normal after blood levels are normal, but some people's recovery from B6 toxicity is "slow going" and can take a while. Others can have incomplete recover from it, meaning they never fully recover.

Take Care

b6 toxicity produces MS symptoms.

My level was 141 nmol/l
My symptoms were:

hypersensitive skin
numbness in left hand/fingers
pins/needles
pricks
muscle twitches
vibrations/buzzing
muscle weakness
fatigue
dizziness
tingling in R + L foot

all these symptoms came and went thoughout the day.  

I was told this was b6 toxicity due to the large amounts of b6 that I was taking in the form of supplements,
