Hello Dr. Phil,
Well, I have tried combined vitamin B suplement pills but since I have a very good balanced diet they did not seem to make any difference. I have reduced nearly all medications to 5mg of Remipril but only when sysytolic BP approaches 150. My skin is dry and flaky and I am awakened neary every morning with burning feet and ichy feet together with a slight headache. My house doctor is clueless about all this and does not offer any treatment but just points to my DoB. However it still bothers me nevertheless. Thanks for your advice,
Regards, Colin.

if you have pernicious anemia, no amount of oral B12 will be enough because it isn't being absorbed
