Hi, I wonder if someone could help me as am very unwell and getting desperate.
I've been I'll six months with still undiagnosed upper abdominal pain. Had tons of blood tests (liver, pancreas, kidneys, blood count, anemia, blood clotting, autoimmune diseases), blood sugar, endoscopy and ultrasound which all show nothing.
My reason for enquiring about B12 is due to many if the symptoms that have developed alongside thus stomach pain. I will list them in order of apoearance:
Sore throat, chest and runny nose
Dizziness & near fainting
Aching all over like having the flu
Very fuzzy brain often with slow movements and unable to focus
Rapid weight loss
Numb feelings in face and neck
Muffled hearing that comes and goes ( I can hear but feels distant like cotton wool in ears)
Pressure in head
Occasionally feeling like I'm going unconscious
All these symptoms have continued for 6 months sltho the weight loss, thirst and neuro symptoms are more recent.
The weight started dropping when the neuro symptoms and thirst started.
Im wondering if my stomach issue is preventing me absorbing B12 as symptoms seem to match.
My GPs aren't being very helpful and starting to treat me like its all in my head but I know its not. As a result its very hard to get them to do more tests as they've concluded I'm fine from the tests I've already had so doubt they will test for B12. I have to keep pushing to have tests done and its very tiring when I feel so unwell.
I purchased a B12 spray and tried some and a lot if the weird brain fog, depression and confusion eased a bit after just a few mins which is interesting.
