Feeling worse than ever, can't even manage a flight of stairs without being totally out of breath. So so exhausted, nerve pain (although I do have a back issue so not sure if related to that) dizzy spells to the point that I'm worried about driving. Can't walk along a corridor without veering off to the side feeling giddy and as for my memory - I forget everything.
So I've had B12 deficiency previously (112) but was IF negative so treated me with the 5 injections and retested 6 months later, I was just over the treatment threshold (thinking 186 but cant remember) so they wanted me to wait 12 months to be retested!
Anyhow recently exhaustion had got so bad that a couple of weeks ago I went to my GP and said I wasn't happy to wait till December as I really feel like my levels are low again. She agreed the blood test which i had a week ago and today phoned me with the result of 156 - she said they will not give me injections as it's not below 150 and I'm to be retested next January to keep an eye on it.
I have a very limited diet due to intolerances and LPR and suffer with upset stomach daily due to IBS so I feel this is the reason why I'm deficient. I'm also on Metformin & Omeprazole which I believe also deplete your levels.
I feel like I'm going mad as feel awful and was sure my levels were low. Now I don't know what's causing all my symptoms and am also worried that by January I will definitely be deficient and will gradually feel worse and worse.
Just had to vent really as am fed up feeling rubbish.
