Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. The links you attached are nonfunctional. The neuropathy you are experiencing may be due to low vitamin B12 levels which are often experienced in individuals with gut diseases so you can easily take replacement of vitamin B12 and you should feel better. As for the pea-sized lumps, they are probably lymph nodes and if you don't have any infection in your body you should discuss this with a hematologist and also your high iron levels.
