I've been dealing with a weird nerve tingle (like a funnybone kinda) in my right temple. Sometimes in my right eyebrow and eyelid too. Some days my temple feels warm and "burning" as well. It often aches and feels sore too.

Long story short, I started seeing a neurologist and they ran a really extensive set of blood tests...way more than my normal docs.

Turns out my Vitamin B1 & B6 is quite high!! Well more than normal.

I've been taking a Men's 1-A-Day multi Vitamin for years and coincidentally these symptoms started about that time. My vitamin contains 150% of the daily dose of B1/6, and I eat very healthy which according to the docs should be fine for normal B1/6 levels.

I've stopped taking the 1-A-Day for about 4 weeks, and guess what!!!??

I'm feeling way better! The pain and tingle sensations are almost gone!

I hope we've found the culprit, I think we have. I hope this helps someone as I couldn't believe that a Vitamin could be the cause of so much discomfort, for so long.

Buster, so glad the dr & you were able to get this all straightened out. While we know vitamins are healthy for us, you have shown that too much of certain ones are not good for the body when the levels become too high. People often do not realize they can develop toxicity if the levels becomes too high with certain ones.

I hope you continue to do well & thanks for posting this. Take care.

So glad you found out what the problem most likely is!

Vitamin toxicity is usually related to A,D,E, and K since these are the fat soluble vitamins. Water soluble are not usually a problem as what doesn't get used is usually excreted daily.

I am 4'11" tall and 94 lbs. Less than the 'average' woman. This means that something like One a Day for Women would be a dose for the 'average' woman...too much for me.

Anytime my doctor has suggested I take a multivitamin, I ask him to order blood work to see what I may be deficient in and then he can prescribe for that deficiency only.

Most people don't think of these things and posts like yours are invaluable!
