Do I have brain damage?

I was undiagnosed for a long time, maybe a year. I never got the "physical" symptoms,  anaemia, poor balance,  reduced sensation of touch or tingling feet. My symptoms were reduced to fatigue, difficulty thinking and depression. I started treatment some weeks ago, and the depression and fatigue have gone away, but I still feel bad in the cognitive side. Is this gonna get better or is a permanent thing? What I don't understand is how I could have brain damage but no other nerve damage. Isn't the brain what the body protects the most?

    Be patient, it takes a long time for the treatment to repair things. It took me about a year to really begin to feel things were getting better. Are you taking a good B complex vitamin tablet to keep everything in balance? Do you know if your levels of ferritin, folate and VitD are good too? 

    I haven't fully recovered my cognitive function, but I had very bad physical symptoms. You didn't have these so much, so hopefully you will recover fully. 

    Best wishes
