I am hoping someone can help me as I am driving myself mad googling symptoms!
Approximately 6 years ago a blood test found I had macrocytosis and folate deficiency. I was never prescribed anything for the folate deficiency as I was told I didn't need to worry unless I planned on getting pregnant. Around 1 year ago I had some blood tests done; again confirmed I had macrocytosis and was deficient in B12. The doctor said at the time that the levels were low enough to start injections however due to my age (22 at the time) he wanted to try supplements first. I took the supplements however have never had a follow up to this.
I have been suffering terribly with different symptoms (the most noticeable being recurrent tongue ulcers, inflamed redness at tip of tongue and recurrent sores in my nose). I also feel extremely tired all the time, thin hair that doesn't grow and very brittle nails.
At the moment my tongue is red at the tip with numerous ulcers and is so painful. Could this be due to a B12 deficiency?? Any help would be much appreciated - I'm driving myself crazy!!
