I wouldn't have thought there would be such a thing as B6 toxicity. In fact, I would think there would be more people, like myself, who have a higher than normal need for pyrodoxine. Much of what you've mentioned as symptoms of the toxicity are things that large doses of B6 took away from me. But in contemplating things, it does make sense. The most significant dietary source of B6 was removed from flour 4 generations or so ago. Some would have been born adapted to the lower levels, others would have retained the need for levels that would have been available in the days before white flour, still others would have an in between requirement. Still, I think it hasty for doctors to be diagnosing toxic levels based on blood or plasma levels of the vitamin. There could be other factors that would give a person high levels of B6, and other things causing the symptoms. I'll be watching the group.
