For the past 18 months I haven't felt right to start with it was tiredness, occasionally feeling sick and lightheaded but back in July while eating my dinner my chin and one side of my face went numb. Since then i have suffered every day with all of the symptoms connected to b12 deficiency. I have has several serum b12 tests which always come back in the normal reference range but at the low end. 263 pg/ml, 320 pg/ml and 268 pg/ml my GP has said that as my levels are in the normal range deficiency is impossible. i also suffer with my stomach which has led to weight loss. ive had MRI scans, countless blood tests, 24 hour ECG and various other tests which have all come back clear or normal. The only thing that was picked up was a vit D deficiency which my GP said was causing all of my symptoms, this has now been corrected and my levels are back to normal but i am still very unwell and none of the symptoms have gone. I collapsed while in with my GP and she reluctantly agreed to test my b12 again along side MMA after i practically begged her to carry out the test.
i am really struggling have been signed off work for the last 6weeks and my period makes everything worse.
i had the MMA blood test over 2 weeks ago and wanted to know if anyone knows how ling this test takes to come back as i am struggling to cope now.
