B12.... when to ask for more tests.

Posted , 3 users are following.

hello I'm 31 now, I have 2 children aged 10 and 1, I was diagnosed with B12 after i had my daughter in 2011, doctors took me off the Injections when I moved from England to Wales as they didn't have my records, anyway fast forward when I was in university I was struggling to remember anything and I was always tired, I eat well I'm healthy I would say, so doctors said I need the injections after me having a blood tests, well now I'm 31 I don't feel any better at all after having b12 I feel that tired some days I could just cry, I get shooting pains down my arms and into my hands it was only ever pins n needles in my legs but now my arms etc, I'm so worried as when ever I speak to the Dr they fob me off, I hate living like this I feel like I'm living a lie just trying my hardest to function and be normal if that makes sense, I recently had a full blood count and things are fine, I have my 3 monthly b12 today, I was on it every 8 weeks but still didn't make a difference, has anyone been the same and turned out to be something else I just don't know what else to ask my Dr for, someone did say to me sounds like MS but surely not.. please help
