After having blood tests last week I was diagnosed with a severe vitamin B12 deficiency and possible pernicious anaemia and have been started immediately on B12 injections (had 3 up to now with 2 more this week).
My b12 level was showing at just 150 and I was told this should be 190 and that this is the cause for me being so lethargic, having no energy and feeling so run down for so long.
I am now wondering when I should start feeling an effect of the vitamin b12 levels. One nurse told me it would be having an effect after the third, another said I wont feel any benefit until a few weeks after the 5th one and that I must then have them every three months to keep me topped up.
Im currently waiting to hear bk from a blood doctor at the local hospital as my GP is unsure whether I am suffering from pernicious anaemia or not due to my age (I am 24) so Im feeling rather confused at the moment. My full blood count was fine and my iron levels showed up fine too. Any help would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance.
