My blood test returned high vitamin B12 levels?

I'm not taking any supplements and I have to go see the doctor on Monday, but I'm wondering what causes this? I googled it and the results were REALLY scary :'( It said it's usually caused by liver diseases and leukemia. Is there any more normal reasons why B12 levels may be higher?

Please only answer if you actually know, I'm really really worried right now!

    High B-12 level is indicative of other problems. Liver disease and leukemia are two of those problems, there are others, some of which are polycythemia vera and myelofibrosis. Polycythemia vera is probably the easiest to treat - regular phlebotomy to remove excess red blood cells. I pray for you that it's something simple to treat.
