I just had the exact same thing happen to me. My level was quite high. The normal range was 5-30. Mine was 100. All I was taking was a multivitamin. I hadn't even taken a vitamin for 24 hrs. when the test was run and it was fasting.I have numbness, tingling, twitching, weakness, balance problems. I have had extensive work-ups for MS... all negative. No can find a cause for my symptoms. I see the neuro next week and will talk with him about it. I hope you stopped the multivitamin.....B6 is water soluable so it should not build uppp in the system. I personally feel it's a metabolic problem causing us to retain it????? Let me know if you learn anything new.
Thanks Patsy...anything you find out about this would be much appreciated. I know that deficiency is an issue but 'm definitely concerned about excess/toxic levels being an issue as well as there is definitely something causing this. I know that there is something off with me right now and this is the first thing that's come up that may be a clue. Hope the neurologist is able to give you some info that helps you. Cheers
This is the first thing that has come up with me too. I googled toxic b 6 levels and it said it causes numbness, tingling, trouble walking, balance problems. I have all of this. It also said it can take 2 to 3 YEARS to resolve. Everything else is normal and I am a wreck as well. I stopped my multivitamin a few weeks ago but don't feel at all different. I think the elevated B6 level is some type of metabolic problem where our bodies can't excrete it. I see the neuro on Tuesday. I'll update you with what he says.
Good luck with the appt. I'm seeing an 'internalist' doctor (waiting for appt) and will see what he/she has to say and get back to you as well. Talk to you soon.
I saw the neuro. He didn't know why the level was elevated. He said B6 levels are associated with neuropathy. He just said let's see if it improves....
interesting...that's helpful (lol)..or not. I find it very frustrating to see what elevated B6 can do, yet no physician I've spoken with can provide any details. I'll keep searching and should I get any answers I'll let you know. Very bizarre indeed. Take care and keep in touch.
