Hi! I'm new here and I'm searching for people who have gone through this long diagnosis process like I have. For years (like 15) people have told me I'm anemic. I've always been underweight. I have severe depression and anxiety and I'm exhausted all the time. Last May, I got to a point where I was tired of doctors dismissing me by blaming my depression. I convinced a doc to test for a million things that could possibly relate to my symptoms. She did and my parietal cells test as well as my mitochondrial tests came back positive. She told me to retest them. Fast forward to last month when new insurance kicked in and I've now been tested 4x with them both still being positive. In addition, I'm seeing a gastro doc for continued bowel inconsistencies. My Hematologist did 15 vials of tests and said everything looked ok but we needed to see if we could boost my b12 and folate for the next month before confirmed PA. I've been taking them for 3 days now and I'm more exhausted now then I was when I wasn't taking them. Is this the normal process? I'm so tired of being tired, dizzy, in a fog, irritable, having migraines, tingling in my hands, insomnia. I don't eat a lot of the foods that give you b12. He wants my level of 300 to go up to 1000 for b12 within a month. Can someone please help me understand this long drawn out process, please?
