Elevated value of vitamin B12

Patient

Q: My blood checking about 4 yrs back showed VitB12 as 1290 as against the maximum range of 911. Even now the value remains more or less the same. What is the reason for this elevated value. I am a BP patient for the last25 yrs and cardiac patient (underwent angioplasty) for the last two yrs.

Pls advise reasons for high B12 value. Is there any treatment for this?

Symptoms:  Difficulty to walk ,speak and talk for more than 5 min,occassional back pain,swelling
