Hi,I also just discovered this site by accident & am soo relieved to find people with similar symptoms to me. I have been feeling unwell for about 4 months now - seems like nothing compared to some of your experiences! Soo very tired that i have no energy, dizzy, heart palpatations, unable to concentrate or remember the simplest of things, feeling like i'm going to pass out, & more recently mouth ulcers. Eventually after many blood tests (and being told i was just stressed, must be worried about something etc) I was found to have very low B12. At only 24, they were very shocked so repeated this test, only to find it had dropped considerably in a week. I've been told that most cases of B12 deficiency are caused by PA (where body attacks itself via an autoimmune disease), but I have been tested numerous times & do not have PA. I have been having the injections monthly (now had 2 in total) in the muscle in my upper arm, and although my arm aches for a few hours after, I promise it really isn't that bad! I feel slightly better about 3 days after the injection, for a duration of about 4 days, but still too tired to work, go out, basically have a life! In the meantime i am waiting to see a specialist for a Gastroscopy(camera & biopsy in my stomach) & possibly a Schilling Test to try to find the reason why my body is not absorbing B12. If anybody else out there has similar symptoms or can help at all with more information???!!
